Among the reasons this is important--besides the deception itself:
The reader is given no hint that the explanations from the Obama campaign have been changing and evolving since February. Briefly:
February - their kids went to the same school (Axelrod to Ben Smith, Politico)
April - some guy in the neighborhood (Obama, debate).
April Fact Check - recycles news reports but does not volunteer the Chicago Annenberg Challenge connectioon.
May - They met at a political meet-and-greet in 1995 (campaign aides to NY Times).
it seems to me that since Obama is covering something up he has become indebted to people (such as Bill Ayers) who are abetting that cover-up. What favors are acruing here, and how deeply does the Chicago machine have their hooks into Obama? I don't think we will find out by ignoring this.Apparently Americans are intent on finding out by electing Obama first.
