Will it matter?

Email this article to some Obama supporters you know. It will be hard for them to dismiss the evidence therein because it appeared in the extremely liberal Boston Globe. But they may find a way.

    Won’t matter. It is always about THE FUTURE!

    Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow….

  2. Mitsu Says:

    Obama will need to address this story, and do it quickly.

    “That is not the low income housing that I know.” — Barack Obama.

    “Oh, and you’re all racists, too.” — B.

    Looks to me like a story of Obama turning a bunch of victim losers into bigger victim losers. No problem here with his supporters. Thats his platform.

  5. FredHjr Says:

    Who would have thought that a Red Diaper Baby (One parent a member of the Communist Party in Kenya, the other a Marxist-lite anthropologist) who grew up and got with other Red Diaper Babies in Chicago would oversee the creation of drab, unmanaged Soviet-Era style apartment buildings. Places where black babushkas cower in poorly constructed buildings. Just like the Soviet style – get the loot, slap ’em up, load ’em up, appoint some incompetent property managers, and then skip the scene.

    Comrade Kommissar! Our hero!

    Do not criticize his devotion to the people. That’s counterrevolutionary!

    Arrest the counterrevolutionary enemies of the State!

    The irony is, Obama was advocating a public-private partnership, rather than government-run housing, i.e., it was a more typically Republican, free-market idea, but it seems to have gone badly wrong here. It does indicate Obama did a very poor job of keeping track of what was going on in his district — a definite negative. Again, this may be a sign of one of the weaknesses Neo pointed out earlier: Obama is not a detail man. He doesn’t check up on things. He should have checked up on this stuff. He should be pressured on this one because he obviously needs to shore up his “checking up on things” skills.

    This is a religious war.

    For far, far too many, facts, evidence, character, experience and the like have little to do with how they will vote.

    Boy, I can’t wait to be a “community organizer” working for a salary of $12000 and a “battered car”!

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
