Quote for today: George Soros to Judy Woodruff of Bloomberg Television
“I think Obama has the charisma and the vision to radically reorient America in the world,”
The paragraphs below are from the beginning of a long article by Cliff Kincaid on the Accuracy in Media blog concerning Barack Obama’s longstanding relationships with various America hating individuals including Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, and Frank Marshall Davis.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama tried to deflect a question about his relationship with terrorist Bill Ayers by saying that he “engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago when I was 8-years-old” and that he was now a professor and a neighbor. The real issue is whether Obama shares Ayers’ communist views. Obama admitted to exchanging ideas with Ayers on an irregular basis but did not say what those ideas were. But we know that Ayers, rather than just being a 1960s “radical,” was a member of a Marxist-Leninist communist group.
The Weather Underground, or Weathermen, wasn’t just home-grown and domestic in nature, although it had evolved from the so-called Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), which laid siege to college campuses and tried to take over administration buildings. Their openly proclaimed goal was world communism and they had links to hostile foreign powers.
“We’re revolutionary communists,” Ayers himself said in 1969.
The FBI said that the Weather Underground had more contacts abroad than the Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA.
Which brings up another so far unmentionable aspect of Obama’s background―the role of his childhood mentor, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis. This is the hard-core Soviet apologist who filled Obama’s head full of anti-American thoughts at a tender age.
About Ayers, Obama said that he’s not somebody he exchanges ideas with “on a regular basis.” What ideas? And does that mean he communicates with him on an occasional basis? We need more questions and answers…..

Also this from AP 2/14/08:
MANAGUA, Nicaragua: President Daniel Ortega, who led the 1979 soviet backed revolution in Nicaragua, says Barack Obama’s presidential bid is a “revolutionary” phenomenon in the United States.
“It’s not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S. … but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change,” the Sandinista leader said Wednesday night as he accepted an honorary doctorate from an engineering university.
