IBD on Obama’s friends

I missed this Editorial from Investor’s Business Daily when it came out a few days ago. It’s about Obama and his circle of Marxist friends. They actually mention the Maria Isabel episode which we covered here.

When one looks at Obama, it’s shocking how radical and anti-American his closest associates are. Taken separately, the black liberation theology of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, or fundraiser William Ayers’ unrepentant past as a 1960s terrorist or Obama’s openly pro-Che Guevara volunteers in Houston might be dismissed.
But taken together, and given Obama’s closeness to his friends, it’s fair to ask whether Obama doesn’t share their extreme-left views. Yet whenever he’s asked, he gets mad and avoids the issue.

Read the rest here.

  1. There might be a double standard if I was a McCain supporter, but I’m not. Besides, Hagee is not McCain’s pastor nor is he saying God Damn America. Neither is Hagee a terrorist or Che Guevara lover. And I’m quite sure that McCain, though too liberal for my taste, is not a Marxist while Obama…well I’m not so sure.

  2. Henry, you’re Spot-On! How anyone could equate the two is beyond rational thought, or just bespeaks of the incredible, mind-numbing, cognitive dissonant idiocy of the liberal-left. As for Obama, his associations reveal a hell of lot about where he will lead this country if we give him control. It’s no fluke that he has the most liberal voting record in the Senate. He identifies with the Left, but is desperately covering his pedigree in order to get elected. Unfortunately, as NPR’s liberal, black commentator, Juan Williams said today, his supporters will cry RACISM every time he gets called out about his leftist, anti-American friends, or rebuke his extremely liberal philosophy.

  3. The New York Times standing up for Catholics when over the last 30 years they’ve pretty much agreed with Hagee on The Church. Maybe NOW I can say I’ve seen it all?

    Anyway, I’ll openly admit this makes McCain look like a moron and whoever the Dem nom is will use it. As Henry said, he’s not my favorite either.

    But Mike, but it’s still not as bad as if he sat in Hagee’s church for 20 years or has unrepentant friends who blew up black churches in the 1960’s.

    And here’s another difference, Mike, not so much between McCain and Obama but between us and you. We freely admit the stink coming from our candidates while you keep trying to sweep your candidates’ turds under the rug and tell us it’s really the emperor’s new perfume.

  4. My father sent me this joke, and this is the only thread remotely relevant where I can shamelessly shoehorn it in:

    A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost.

    She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

    The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.”

    She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a Republican.”

    “I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

    “Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

    The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Democrat.”

    “I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

    “Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your
    problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but, somehow, now it’s my fault.”
