Obama: “Now That I’ve Been Elected, One’s Associations Really ARE Important”

The exciting thing about an Obama presidency – aside from the very real possibility that an inexperienced radical will fail spectacuarly and send the whole country plunging to its ruin – is the neverending stream of hypocrisy that flows from the man.

The man whose campaign offered a constant stream of “that amounts to the charge of guilt by association” when reports of Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko, William Ayers, Rashid Khalidi, and others surfaced, is now more fixated on “associations” than any President in history.  This from a man who would certainly fail to achieve a security clearance in any administration other than one in which he was President.

Jackie Calmes, writing for The New York Times, says:

A seven-page questionnaire being sent by the office of President-elect Barack Obama to those seeking cabinet and other high-ranking posts may be the most extensive — some say invasive — application ever.

Now, it doesn’t surprise me one iota, but it will likely come as a surprise that the man who campaigned as the paradigmatic symbol epitomizing ‘hope’ and ‘change’ would prove himself to be the paradigmatic Stalinist instead.

My favorite quote of the article:

Just in case the previous 62 questions do not ferret out any potential controversy, the 63rd is all-encompassing: “Please provide any other information, including information about other members of your family, that could suggest a conflict of interest or be a possible source of embarrassment to you, your family, or the president-elect.”

As though anyone could actually embarrass the president-elect more than he has embarrassed himself and the country that voted for him with his own “sources of embarrassment.”

In 1992 it was a serious matter than Bill Clinton had once smoked marijuana; he had to convince voters that he “didn’t inhale.”  Obama used hard drugs like cocaine.  It is difficult to imagine a President having openly associated with openly anti-Semitic PLO functionaries such as Rashid Khalidi, but here we are.  It is beyond impossible to imagine a President having not merely associated with, but actively PARTNERED with, a terrorist who bombed the Pentagon and the Capital building.  But here we are.  It is utterly impossible to imagine a President who spent 23 years attending a racist and anti-American church and remaining with said church even AFTER the pastor shouted for all to hear, “God damn America!”  But here we are.

And his administration is worried that some detail about someone’s life could be “embarrassing”?

    It is pretty obvious that Obama’s questionnaire reflects his own true character and he doesn’t want someone else like that working in the White House finding out what the boss is like.

    The material in your article reveals so much of the Man behind the Mask that Time Magazine helped to create! But then, people who are not blind have expected this from the Messiah; there is just too much for this guy to be real. I take my hope from the fact that 46% voted for John McCain in the worst possible situation a Republican Candidate ever faced in an Election run by Money and the Money Media to achieve just one thing: to elect the Man they wanted to be their Messiah. For Money!

    Good for the 46% who said: no thank you, we don’t want you because we don’t trust you, and that is a strong voice no matter what the seeing blind and hearing deaf are saying.

    America will survive this Imposter because America must. I hope the 46% start kicking some butt; the time for pleasantries is over. Perhaps it was the best thing ever happened for him to win the Election to expose the real person behind the mask when he fails, and he won’t be able to blame President Bush for that.

    Not Surprised,

    I believe one thing from my understanding of my Scriptures that makes more and more sense: the United States ISN’T a player in the last days. That doesn’t mean we don’t exist, but it would at least mean that we aren’t relevant, and probably don’t have the means to become involved in the critical Middle East battlefield.

    I see a major economic catastrophe as being the best explanation. And I see it coming soon – although “soon” could be 10-15 or more years.

    Like the “community reinvestment act” that Carter implemented that took three decades to ultimately explode (and ten years to blow up even when Clinton massively increased it), what is lain now and in the months to come may take some time to explode. But explode they will, and in an economy that is already vulnerable.

    I don’t doubt that there won’t STILL be an America in the aftermath, but it would be a much smaller and weaker America.
