Hope and Change
A good marketing campaign, well executed. However, now it is time for the nitty gritty. I think we will see that Obama will not long be able to stay behind the skirts of the fawning MSM. The most Liberal Senator, as shown by the National Journal, will see that many of us who could care less about the gender and skin tone of the candidates ARE going to care about stances on issues.
And as our friend Erick from Red State is showing, either he has to have a huge curtain to hide behind or lots of ‘splaining to do:
Barack Obama sought the New Party’s endorsement knowing it was a radical left organization
ast week we documented Obama’s 1996 endorsement by the New Party: which raises the question: what is the New Party? It’s easy to allege that this group is closely tied to former communists, but digging in to the New Party and Obama’s involvement, a very dirty picture presents itself. In fact, it is abundantly apparent that Barack Obama not only knew what the New Party was when he sought its endorsement, but through his ties with ACORN, the radical left activist organization, Obama used his radical left connections to get elected to the Illinois State Senate.
Onward to the Socialist Utopia
The New Party was designed as a loose confederation of unions, socialists, communists, and black activists who shared common values, but often had different goals.
In Arkansas, Minnesota, Oregon, and other places the New Party has worked hand in hand with ACORN and local unions to block public policy changes that have included prison expansion, government subsidized stadiums, and zoning changes to bring in “big box” stores. In 2000, Missoula County, Montana Commissioner Barbara Evans, after fighting the New Party over buidling a home-improvement store, told the Oregonian, “They’re bad news. I consider them socialist-communist in their beliefs.”
Go read the whole thing; Erick did a good job.
Change? Yeah, Obama wants Change – but not a change to anything that resembles old fashioned independant, self-reliant NH values, that’s for sure!
Nanny State, more government control, isolationism, and promising to hold your health needs hostage to the Federal government whims. We see problems here in NH with the government side of healthcare – trust me, it will be MUCH worse at the Federal level.
Relax – he’s from the government and he’s going to help you – whether you want him to or not.
Go ahead, ask him what his success rate on legislation sponsored and passed, and how effective his community activism was. Betcha you find out that they were not as effective as this campaign was…
