Red Rover, Red Rover can Rashid Khalidi come over?
Obama’s list of friends that he used to play with keeps coming back to haunt him. MSM- Main Street Media portrays Obama like a cult leader, foraging his way through the USA, spreading his message of a redistribution of wealth, rather than focusing on how Obama got to the Democratic Nomination in the first place. Obama did not win the popular vote or the electoral vote, he was duly appointed by Pelosi. http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/10/28/obamas-job-application-denied/
In another fine example of his character, while Obama has admitted previous associations with Rashid Khalidi there is now more proof as to how close the relationship was. The LA Times said it obtained a video of Obama delivering an in-person testimonial in 2003 at the farewell party of anti-Israel professor Rashid Khalidi, who at the time was departing the University of Chicago for a new teaching position at Columbia University. The LA Times says it will not release the video or its contents to the media. Guests besides Obama at the dinner for Khalidi included former Weather Underground members Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn.
http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/10/fox-news-reports-on-la-times.html ”A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi,” said McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb. “The election is one week away, and it’s unfortunate that the press so obviously favors Barack Obama that this campaign must publicly request that the Los Angeles Times do its job – make information public,” he said. But then McCain changed course…
“I changed my mind, and I want to thank you,” said Sen. McCain in a letter to editors at the Times. “You folks go ahead, stick with your bold decision to keep that video secret. After all, what’s a free press for, if not to withhold news that people don’t really need, or that might cause discomfort just a few days before an election?” http://www.scrappleface.com/?p=3175
http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=M2FjMDY1ZWMwNWE0NTRhZjY0NGJmZTY1MWQ1YjVhN2M=”Khalidi is not distancing himself from his past. “Consistent with what you’d expect from someone who justified PLO attacks on civilians in Israel and Lebanon from 1976 to 1982, Khalidi routinely refers to Israel as a “racist” and “apartheid” state, and professes to believe in a “one-state” solution to the conflict.The Khalidis and Obamas were good friends. In his capacity as a director of the Woods Fund, Obama in 2001 and 2002 steered $75,000 to the Arab American Action Network, the brainchild of Rashid and Mona Khalidi. According to an L.A. Times account of the dinner, Obama mentioned that he and Michelle had been frequent dinner guests at the Khalidi home (just another guy in the neighborhood?) and that the Khalidis had even baby-sat for the Obama girls.”
Here we have a wanna be leader of the free world, Barack Obama at a roast and toast for former PLO leader Khalidi who has made clear his opinion of Israel, and the media won’t release it. In more from the National Review Online, “Obama told the crowd that those talks with the Khalidis had been “consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots. . . . It’s for that reason that I’m hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation — a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid’s dinner table” but around “this entire world.”
Here is a consitsant reminder for Voters, Obama lists among his associates not only Rashidconsistent Khalidi, but” Rezko and Auchi, Odinga, Ayers, The New Black Panther Party, La Raza, Farrakhan, and how could we forget the man of the hour, His holiness in hate, the mentor to Barack….Mr. Wright…..” http://www.floppingaces.net/2008/03/23/the-obama-associates/:
If Obama is nothing else, he is guilty by association of choosing less than reputable figures to guide his political career and influence his policies for the future of America. Is there anyone associated with Obama who is not a crook? http://www.hillaryclintonforum.net/discussion/archive/index.php/f-113.html Right about now, Hillary and Bill must be doing the happy dance in their choice to at the very least distance themselves from Obama, even while being forced by the DNC to support him.
“The long list of evil Obama associates seems to grow daily and although Obama has spent the last few years dodging questions, ignoring demands for full open disclosure of his past and making excuses about a plethora of bad associations, one fact seems glaringly obvious…Obama has far more to hide than to share! http://www.zimbio.com/pilot?ZURL=%2FBarack%2BObama%2Farticles%2F2065%2FAdvanced%2BGuilt%2BAssociation%2BBarack%2BObama&URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freerepublic.com%2Ffocus%2Ff-news%2F2090301%2Fposts
When Nixon uttered his famous “I am not a crook” line, nobody took him seriously. While he didn’t personally break into the Democratic Party offices at the Watergate Hotel, he surrounded himself with the crooks and scumbags who did. http://www.brainshavings.com/2008/10/barack-obamas-friends-and-associates.html
The actions of The LA Times are dispicable and a slap in the face to freedom of the press and down right good journalism. If the LA Times never releases the video it really won’t matter as Main Stream America and good old boys like “Joe the Plumber” are coming in force to question the Obama sales pitch. Joe was on Fox recently talking about his opinion on Obama’s stance on Israel. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/10/28/foxs-shepard-smith-forced_n_138674.html “Anyway, five minutes with Joe The Plumber had Shepard Smith so frustrated that the Fox anchor felt compelled to issue a disclaimer, immediately following the segment, pushing back on any notion that Obama would mean the “death of Israel,” saying: “I just want to make this 100 percent perfectly clear — Barack Obama has said repeatedly and demonstrated repeatedly that Israel will always be a friend of the United States, no matter what happens once he becomes President of the United States.” It is hard to fathom a President Obama enhancing a peace process for Isreal when he is friendly with the likes of Rashid Khalidi.
http://townhall.com/columnists/FrankJGaffneyJr/2008/10/06/characters_count?page=full goes on about Characters do Count. In Obama-land, Israel will always be a friend to him and America- just like, other radicals like Rezko, Auchi, Odinga, AyersdespicableIsrael, Farrakhan, and Reverend Wrong.
Obama has purchased a half hour of television time, scheduled to air tonight, Wednesday, October 29, 2008. The ad is slated to air on MSNBC, making it the only cable news outlet to run the ad. NBC, Fox, CBS, and Univision will also broadcast the ad. CNN declined to accept the infomercial. A big pat on the back to CNN for doing it’s job, reporting the news- however slanted it may be. CBS, NBC and Fox will pocket $1 million per network for the half hour of paid advertisement. There are also rumors circulating that Fox moved the start time of the World Series Coverage, but Fox Network says it did not move the World Series for the campaign ad, and that the first pitch was never slated for earlier than 8:30 PM. ”
