A release from the campaign states: “From his political introduction at Bill Ayers' house in 1995 to their service together on two boards, Barack Obama has long known Bill Ayers but has not been straightforward with the American people. This is an issue of judgment and candor and Barack Obama has not told the American people the truth.”

The ad displays a series of photos of Obama and Ayers, along with other images, while the female voice-over states:

“Barack Obama and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. Friends. They've worked together for years. But Obama tries to hide it. Why?

“Obama launched his political career in Ayers' living room. Ayers and Obama ran a radical education foundation, together. They wrote the foundation's by-laws, together. Obama was the foundation's first chairman.

“Reports say they ‘distributed more than $100 million to ideological allies with no discernible improvement in education.’

“When their relationship became an issue, Obama just responded, ‘This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood.’

“That's it?

“We know Bill Ayers ran the violent left wing activist group called Weather Underground. We know Ayers' wife was on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list. We know they bombed the Capitol. The Pentagon. A judge's home.

“We know Ayers said, ‘I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough.’

“But Obama's friendship with terrorist Ayers isn't the issue. The issue is Barack Obama's judgment and candor.

“When Obama just says, ‘This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood,’ Americans say, ‘Where's the truth, Barack?’

“Barack Obama. Too risky for America.”
