“Does anybody really seriously believe that Barack Obama is a secret left-wing radical?”
You’re right, David. Why would anyone think this guy is a left-wing radical? Just because sought (and got) an endorsement from the Chicago branch of the Socialist International, got his training from ACORN and a Saul Alinsky outfit, wanted to surrender to terrorists, thinks the Constitution vests alien combatants with rights against the American people, fought a law prohibiting infanticide, praises Bill Ayers’ views on education and the criminal justice system, approved millions in subsidies for hard Left education “reform” projects, wants to nationalize the healthcare industry (for starters), wants to transfer $850B to the international community through the good offices of the UN, and (having voted against Roberts and Alito) says he thinks the key qualifications for a Supreme Court justice – after considering a candidate’s positions on affirmative action, reproductive rights, and the rights of the disabled — are “empathy” and “what is in the judge’s heart”?
What on earth was I thinking?
I’ll give you this much, though: I don’t think there’s much “secret” about where he’s coming from.
