Pay no attention.

From Ed Morrissey:

It’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up. In the midst of Barack Obama’s continuing insistence that William Ayers was just some guy in the neighborhood (and just some guy on two non-profit boards with whom Obama worked for almost a decade), people asked why Obama then gave Ayers a promotional blurb for his book, A Kind and Just
Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court.
Team Obama spokesmen Bill Burton and Robert Gibbs categorically denied it.

Guess what Morrissey found?

On a more serious note, this wouldn’t be an issue if the Obama campaign would stop lying about the nature of his relationship with Ayers. They’ve continually fibbed about it when the public record is pretty clear that they formed a political alliance meant to boost Obama’s electoral career. Their inability to be honest about this relationship is what makes these lesser revelations more significant than they should be. A modest blurb on an obscure book would have no meaning at all absent the fact that Team Obama lied about it on two separate occasions.

It's been said before, but what's also key here is that the Obama camp feels the NEED to supress and lie about this information. They feel that that course of action is better than admiting the truth.

Contrast that with the Image Obama and his media supporters are trying to craft.
