Scrubbing The Obama-Ayers Connection?

Nice try but no cigar is the basic theme over at Patterico's Pontifications.

It seems that Obama tried to denied launching his career in the living room of William Ayers, known domestic terrorist that admitted to planting and detonating bombs on US soil, the Capital, the Pentagon, police stations and a judge's home.

It also seems that the reports of his now famous launch in William Ayers' living room are now being scrubbed off the Internet, but not quite so fast, Patterico has the full quotes and screen shots of the original reports.

Doing our small part in making sure this type of thing cannot be scrubbed into oblivion, here is the screen shot, via Patterico:

Get to know Barack Obama
When I first met Barack Obama, he was giving a standard, innocuous little talk in the livingroom of those two legends-in-their-own-minds, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. They were launching him--introducing him to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread. His "bright eyes and easy smile" struck me as contrived and calculated--maybe because I was supporting another candidate. Since then, I've never heard him say anything new or earthshaking, or support anything that would require the courage of his convictions. I only voted for him in this last race--because his opponent was a pinhead. And I've been mostly alone in my views. But maybe that's changing.

Thanks, Barack. By voting to confirm Condoleezza Rice for Secretary of State you confirmed my opinion of you as someone who will not come through when it counts. You voted with the entire Republican membership rather than your compadre, Dick Durbin, and the man you supported for president, John Kerry. Your sense of collegiality is ridiculous under the circumstances.

What are all those people who thought you walked on water thinking now? I'm just wondering who's going to whisper in President CandyAss's ear when Condo's busy playing Secretary of State.

When is the left going to understand, once something is online, you cannot scrub it like it never existed?
