Someone Else Know Obama

It is interesting that in order to support Obama you have to ignore what he says and dismiss his associations and what they have to say about him. His pastor of 20 years, Reverend Wright, made it clear, stating that Barack was a politician who would say anything to get elected. What did a professor he worked with have to say that must be ignored:

A while back I chatted with a University of Chicago professor who was a frequent lunch companion of Obama's. This professor said that Obama was as close to a full-out Marxist as anyone who has ever run for president of the United States. Now, I tend to quickly dismiss that kind of talk as way over the top. My working assumption is that Obama is firmly within the mainstream of Democratic politics. But if he is as free with that sort of redistributive philosophy in private as he was on the campaign trail this week, I have no doubt that U of C professor really does figure him as a radical. And after last night's debate, a few more Americans might think that way, too. McCain's best line: "Now, of all times in America, we need to cut people's taxes. We need to encourage business, create jobs, not spread the wealth around." [Read]
