Obama-Smitten Media

Bearing in mind the ridiculously vicious media coverage of Palin, it is important to consider that Obama has far worse issues that the media simply refuses to cover:

1. Obama's personal mentor and role model Reverend Wright is an open racist, anti-Semite and America hater who gave Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award and visited Khaddafi in Libya in a show of support. Reverend Wright has been Obama's father figure for 20 years, married Obama, and baptized his children. Obama said he could no more distance himself from Reverend Wright than his own grandmother, but then proceeded to throw him under the bus 2 weeks later.

2. Obama has been long-time close friends with William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, the two founders of the domestic terrorist group the Weathermen. In addition to having sat on numerous boards together with Ayers (Woods Foundation, Annenberg Challenge), Obama launched his political career in a fundraiser in the home of Ayers and Dohrn. In September 2001 in an interview with the NY Times, Ayers admitted to bombing the Pentagon and said his only regret was that he didn't set more bombs. Ayers remains committed to bringing about a global communist revolution and gave a speech to Chavez in Venezuela saying exactly that in 2006.

3. Obama's political mentor is Tony Rezko, a convicted felon who helped Obama buy his house for half the price. Rezko is a Syrian national who rose to power in Chicago by working with the Nation of Islam. His connection with the NoI is based on a joint commitment to destroy Israel.

4. Obama is also close personal friends with Rashid Khalidi, a former spokesman for the PLO. Obama has said he routinely has Khalidi and his wife over for dinner and they discuss Middle East politics.

All this stuff about Palin's daughter's pregnancy and Palin's husband's DUI for 20 years ago is ridiculous. Obama himself was born to an unwed teenage mother (his mother was 18 and purportedly "married" to Barack Obama Sr., but since Obama Sr. was already married, the marriage was void) and Obama himself was a coke user 20 years ago. The media is so ridiculously in the bag for Obama that I want to puke.
