Rezko and Pfleger and Wright, Oh My!

Yesterday in my article “The Deep Faith of Barack Obama” I wrote:

When asked if he had people in his life he looked to for guidance, Senator Obama responded:

Well, my pastor is certainly someone who I have an enormous amount of respect for.
I have a number of friends who are ministers. Reverend Meeks is a close friend and colleague of mine in the state Senate. Father Michael Pfleger is a dear friend and somebody I interact with closely.

Add on to Senator Obama’s list his dear friend convicted felon Tony Rezko and his associate, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, and we have a pattern here. And if it is true that Barack Obama was completely fooled and surprised by the behavior of these four men, three of whom he says “this is not the man I knew”, then that leads to a very important question.

How are we to trust this man to sit across the negotiating table with the likes of Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, North Korea’s Kim Jong-Il, or Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez? Senator Obama has already stated that he would initiate “tough negotiations” with these four countries and yet he is unable to know the hearts and minds of three close friends and one political associate?

When Iran eventually gets the nuclear bomb, will President Obama state this was not the man I negotiated with? When Syria completely invades Lebanon through the help of Hezbollah, will President Obama say this was not the man I negotiated with? And what about North Korea and Venezuela; will President Obama’s only excuse for the betrayal of our enemies be these were not the men with whom he negotiated?

Today we had Jim Johnson from the Obama camp resign from his campaign. Now this is the man Senator Obama picked to vet the Vice Presidential candidates. Again this leads me to another question:


We have Senator Obama slamming Countrywide Mortgage for goughing customers and taking advantage of vulnerable homeowners and he has one of the weasels who benefited from Countrywide, and a Washington insider, vetting the Vice President possibilities.

So much for real change, huh Senator?

Folks, this man’s ability to judge human character is stunningly inept.

  1. Stunningly inept!!! Well put Dave! It always amazes me when people claimed that when Pres. Clinton was in office, the personal life has nothing to do with his political life. Well, we saw in which ways personal character does have much to do with the political office, in that once he lied and said he did not have sex with that woman, there were plenty of us who wondered how many more times he lied about national security issues- one of the main reasons why we are fighting today. As with Obama, the same people are crying and whining that the man’s friends have nothing to do with the presidency. Again, we can see that it will greatly effect not only social issues here at home, but also as he”dialogues” with our enemies. Like it or not, a man is judged by the company he keeps, and they are bound to rub off! God Bless you Dave!!

  2. This is just unbelievable that people have such low standards! A neighbor on the other side of my street thinks Bill Clinton was our best President! I have to wonder whether the Americans who excuse vices in “public servants” do those misdeeds themselves. Why can’t people see that integrity matters?

    On a side note, the media started focusing on Bill Clinton’s sex scandal because Americans were becoming concerned about how he was bombing the Middle East–places that formerly had nothing against us and had not attacked us. That’s a big part of why oppressive regimes and terrorist groups have gained a foothold using anti-American propaganda. It’s not Americans’ fault for the most part, but unfortunately the Clinton foreign policy made numerous enemies for America 🙁 .

    How many times will an outright lie get called a “gaffe” by Americans who are getting brainwashed by the MSM? A gaffe is a mistake, and Hillary, for example, only considered it a mistake when she got CAUGHT for lying about “bravery” in Bosnia. It’s just unbelievable what Americans have come to accept. We all have to wake Americans up to see that these candidates are either extremely unaware of what’s going on with their friends, or they are absolute liars. I’m really tired of being told to compromise on my standards.

    Hey Dave, I love all your emoticons 🙂 !
