Joseph Farah writes in his Oct. 29 WorldNetDaily column:
[Barack Obama] says he was only 8 years old when [William] Ayers performed his "despicable" deeds. As I pointed out, that's not true. However, suppose it was?
Obama was also 8 years old when another American performed despicable deeds. His name was Charles Manson. Would it be a legitimate excuse – a worthy rationalization – if Obama had maintained a working political alliance with Manson for five years? Would it be acceptable for Obama to say, "Gee, I didn't know about his history. I was only 8 years old at the time"?
I don't think so.
Meanwhile, Joseph Farah was a youngster -- perhaps even 8 years old -- when domestic terrorist G. Gordon Liddy was breaking into buildings and plotting to murder and bomb innocent people. And Farah was an adult when Liddy told his listeners how to kill federal agents.
Farah surely knows about Liddy's history of felonious crime and violence. Yet Farah has not spoken a word about why he pals around with a domestic terrorist.
As long as Farah continues to hang with Liddy -- who is just as much, if not more, of a domestic terrorist as Ayers -- Farah has no moral standing to criticize Obama.
