Can you judge a man by the company he keeps? At least that’s how the saying goes. If that expression is to be followed, what can be deduced? Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko, and Bill Ayers, are all friends of Obama and are all incredibly remarkable characters. These people are: a black supremacist, an embezzler, and an urban terrorist. The list just gets longer for Obama.
The is the man who was supposed to be the unifier this country needed with bipartisanship unseen since the days of Abraham Lincoln. But what about these characters?
I have said before that if listening to Obama’s rhetoric only and if one wanted to know where Obama worshiped, Trinity Church of Christ might be the last place one might think to look. But what about the man who consorts with an avowed terrorist, domestic or otherwise? Bill Ayers, Obama’s most recent shady acquaintance, has spoken of destroying the government, killing parents, and destroying the social order so clearly and definitively that it makes Trotsky look like a moderate.
So what does this say about the man who would be president? Obama himself says nothing of the sort of an Ayers or Wright but does it mean anything when a man seems to surround himself with such people who do?
I do not personally believe for one second that Obama is this unifying, nonpartisan so many people believe he is. His Illinois state senate record was straight down the Democratic line and his three insignificant years in the U.S. Senate have produced the most liberal voting record in that time. So, a black supremacist pastor, a corrupt businessman, and an urban terrorist can all call the Great Uniter their friend. Those aren't exactly unifying cronies.
Again, I have said before that the most magnificent lies are wrapped in the most beautiful of packages. There is a lot about Obama that we do not know yet but he has been given an unquestionable benefit of the doubt. The less we know about him, the more he will be able to get away with once he wins the Oval Office.
The company one keeps says a lot about a person. This man was supposed to transcend race and heal America but for 20 years had a pastor who routinely spewed hate at his own country. He was supposed to be the first honest politician, but he counts an embezzler among his friends. And an urban terrorist counts among them as well. Obama apologists have already bellowed that this is all circumstantial and really says nothing about the man. That aside, does this sound right for America?
If you need an example to further illustrate this duplicity, imagine if George W. Bush had a mere acquaintance who bombed an abortion clinic.
How’s that for hope in America?
