But they look so neat in their bow ties

Today's latest reminder of Obama's past, and PRESENT!

By Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report and The HinzSight Report

Ever wonder why Obama ALWAYS refers to America's #1 racist as "Minister"?

Nation of Islam activists on Obama camp payroll

JERUSALEM – Sen. Barack Obama employed and continues to employ senior staffers who belong to the Nation of Islam, and the presidential candidate has some "worrying" ties to the controversial group headed by Louis Farrakhan, a former key Obama insider told WND.

The former insider, who spoke on condition of anonymity, expressed particular concern that Obama employed at least two Nation members in his early days as a state senator, when his office was staffed by only a handful of workers.

"When you're a state senator, you have little money given to you to hire staff. It is ironic that two of Obama's employees in those days were known Nation of Islam activists when Obama employed perhaps a total of maybe three or four staffers," said the former insider.

The former insider confirmed Obama is directly aware of the Nation of Islam members on his staff.

Obama was elected to the Illinois state Senate in 1996, serving the 13th district, which then spanned Chicago's South Side neighborhoods, including areas in which Farrakhan was considered to be highly influential.

Months ago, gamecock noticed that:

Obama can’t bring himself to call “Minister” Farrakhan, Louis

I have noted previously that I have found it quite curious that Barack Obama always refers to the number one racist in America by the honorific “minister”, as do his supporters and those that respect him, whereas most everyone else refers to him as ‘Louis” Farrakhan.

I always have deemed this significant, as I think it provides a window into Obama’s thought processes and, I think, that this, along with his friendly associations with an unrepentant terrorist and his “bitter” remarks about white people that prefer Hillary to him, is evidence of his extreme ignorance and naiveté, born of his life within a leftist cocoon.

Even during his latest “race”, i.e. Jeremiah Wright, damage control speech, when he is ostensibly denouncing the Black Muslim leader thought to have been involved in the assassination of Malcolm X after X discovered that white people were not devils, he still can’t bring himself to refer to this sick racist creep without the title of respect:

Not once,

But when he states and then amplifies such ridiculous propositions as the U.S. government somehow being involved in AIDS, when he suggests that Minister Farrakhan somehow represents one of the greatest voices of the 20th and 21st centuries, when he equates the United States wartime efforts with terrorism, then there are no excuses.

but twice.

And so when I start hearing comments about conspiracy theories and AIDS and suggestions that somehow Minister Farrakhan has been a great voice in the 20th century, then that goes directly at who I am and what I believe this country needs.

Barack Obama says he wants to “bridge gaps”, but there are some bridges Obama will not cross, and one, is to disrespect Louis Farrakhan. Barack found out this week that not only was the din of his 20-year pew parked butt political calculation possibly non-transferable beyond the level of senator for a deep blue state, but also that his audaciously hopeful, hate America minister is quite ready to hate him.

I wonder if the veteran of the “Chicago Way” of politics, living in a Big House Rezko made possible, finally got the message that he dare not dis Calypso Louis is public?

“Minister” Farrakhan, Barack?

To what does he minister, other than hate?

Taranto's Best of the Web thinks that

...it seems only a matter of time before an Obama-Nation of Islam connection, if true, draws the attention of the mainstream media.

I predicted in December 2006 that the GOP would win the presidency due to the Dem's rejection of Bill Clinton's middle way and move to the far left that resented his stifling of all but the pro-abortionists for eight years and then saw their entitlement taken away in Florida in 2000 (with insult added to injury by President Bush's re-election in 2004 despite 12 months 24/7 of msm-dem bushlied), a Gamecock theory echoed today by

NRO:

The Democrats have gone all the way. They have nominated arguably the most left-wing major party presidential nominee ever, certainly the most left-wing since George McGovern.

Obama’s victory is a repudiation not just of the Clintons personally, but of Clintonism. Bill Clinton won the presidency based on the Democratic Leadership Council model of a new kind of Democratic politics that pivoted toward the center. Obama not only has had no Sister Souljah moment, he initially embraced his Sister Souljah (in the form of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, introduced to the American public in videotaped rants). He has made no creative policy departure on par with Bill Clinton’s advocacy of welfare reform in 1992 — in fact, has made no creative policy departure at all. He is the old wine of McGovernite liberalism poured into the alluring wineskin of “hope” and “unity.”

Then when I learned of Obama and the Obaminations in his past, I re-affirmed my confidence in 2007.

I have been predicting that he wouldn't get over 42% of the popular vote and will lose in a Dukakis like elctoral landslide.

I think that's too pessimistic a prediction.

McGovern II anyone?

The Ds are going to scream you are a racist bigot if you say his full name, talk about his friends or talk about his pastors dontcha know. We need to stop allowing the Ds and the driveby media to frame the narrative of what can and cannot be said. We need to to fire back that our country is not sick, and does not need the cures offered.
We need a truth patrol to refute all the BS that has been coming 24/7 from the Ds and the driveby media about how terrible the USA is.

My gloom is lifting.

And you must keep NC out of Barack's column come Nov.

in a fair and rational world this guy wouldn't be elected dog catcher. but there are simply too many stupid young people and rich latte liberals who are going to portray him as Jesus returned.

You talk landslide for the GOP?! Honestly it will be a real miracle if we can win by 2%...

Because I'm fairly contrary (QUELLE SURPRISE!) I do think that some things are worth taking into consideration.

1) The Primaries had a lot more Democrats turn out than Republicans. I'm looking for numbers from years past and found a somewhat interesting article from the WSJ... but that article talked about how they couldn't believe the numbers were up for both parties. This season it struck me that there were a lot more Democrats showing up for the Primaries than Republicans.

2) One of the reasons given for 2006 happening (losing the House and the Senate in one fell swoop) was because (among other reasons of course) the base didn't show up in the same strength as in years prior. If Redstate is Representative of the base at all... there's reason to believe that the base might not show up for McCain in the same strength as years prior.

3) Bush has done serious damage to the Republican "Brand". This is important because those folks who only think about politics after the World Series ends and vote for this party or that party based on flash card kinda stuff vote for this party or that one based on "Brand" kinda reasons. I think the media term for these people is "Swing Voter".

This is not me saying "2008 will make 2006 look like 2004" but me saying I'm not sure that Obama is McGovern II. At best, I think he's likely to be Gore II (excepting the remote possibility that he takes a VP that reminds everybody of Lloyd Bentsen) and he's more likely to be a Kerry... but this is one where if the Republicans don't work hard for it, they might find themselves with a populace voting for Gridlock. That is to say: McCain in the Executive and more Dems in the House/Senate.

Just in time for the Census.

Man is free at the moment he wishes to be. --Voltaire

All of which I have taken into account, along with all other relevant points. Yes, your points do mitigate against a McGovernite magnitude loss.

But lets look at the mitigating factors against your points.

1 - This is a major factor but given that the dems have been out of the WH for eight years, and had a woman and a black to motivate those constituencies, same is mitigated.

But the major mitigating factor is how many dems came out in revulsion against Obama after his history became known and the exit polls of DEMOCRATS in latter states that showed such high percentages that don't trust him and would not vote for him against McCain.

2 - 2006 was not only not a presidential year, but was also a very unique Year Six grievance election.

No comparison with a presidential contest is apropos.

The base will turn out to protect America from Obama. Not just repubs, but MANY dems. many

3 - The dem brand was destroyed long ago, esp the leftist brand, but this is about TWO MEN.

Obama's character is destroyed by his life.

Obama is extreme in the extreme.

42% tops. Electoral landslide defeat. Probably no better than Dukakis.

Gore had the goodwill of the Clinton years.

Obama rejects Clintonism.
