It's been said that you can tell a lot about someone by the company they keep.
What can we say about Barack (You Can't Say His Middle Name is Hussein) Obama? He's someone who has a bad choice in friends, but somehow he doesn't seem to know too much about them.
When his pastor, the (Racist) Reverend Jeremiah Wright was heard screaming "God D*mn America" and other anti-American epithets, Obama said this was not the pastor he knew. Keep in mind that Obama had spent 20 years in this "church," got married there, baptized his children there, gave upwards to $20,000 in tithes a couple of years ago.
When it was revealed that his political career began in the home of unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers and wife Bernadine Dohrn, that Obama had served on two boards with him (Chicago Annenberg Challenge & the Woods Fund), Obama's excuse was that Ayers "lived in my neighborhood." Later, it became, "I thought he had been rehabilitated." Never mind that, a week before they both appeared at a conference, Ayers is on tape preaching the same anti-American, pro-Marxist views he held in the 1960's.
When his pal Tony Rezko was convicted on several counts of bribery and fraud earlier this year, Obama said this was not the person he knew.
When asked about his friendship with former PLO member Rashid Kahlidi, in light of a tape being withheld by the LA Times showing Obama at a 2003 farewell dinner turned Jew bash, Obama said Kahlidi was another guy in the neighborhood whose kids go to school with his kids.
Finally, when Obama's Auntie Zeituni is found out to be living illegally in a South Boston housing project, four years after been issued a deportation order, he claims he "didn't know" she was here illegally. Never mind that Auntie was at Barack's 2005 swearing in ceremony as a US Senator.
For someone who claims not to know very much, why would anyone trust him to be President of the United States?
