The Company You Keep

I remember when I was a little kid my parents told me I would be judged by the company I kept. There were a few kids that they didn't want my brother and me hanging around with. Did they think that we would become bad kids if we played with bad kids? Or did they worry that other people would think we were bad? Either way, I think it was pretty good advice.

I guess Barry Obama's grandma didn't teach him that lesson. Or if she did, he ignored it. We all know about his racist, hate-mongering pastor who preaches GD America. He tried to explain that away, comparing him to a crazy uncle. Don't forget about his criminal pal, Tony Rezko.

ABC News is taking flack for having the gall to ask him about his ties to domestic terrorists William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn. He said that their misdeeds occurred when he was just a boy, and he's not that close to them, anyway. The fact that on 9/11 Ayers whined that he wished he could have "done more" doesn't seem to merit mention.

The latest that's come out about the company Obama keeps is his friendship with Jew hating, Hamas loving, former PLO employee Rashid Khaladi. Barry and his buddy William Ayers served on the board of The Woods Foundation together at the time the Woods Foundation contributed $75,000 to the AAAN (Arab American Action Network). AAAN lobbies for open borders and drivers licenses for illegals and they are openly anti-Israel. When Khalidi left Chicago for a job at Columbia University, the Obamas were at his farewell party.

The Obama camp is taking the position that Obama can't have guilt by association. I'll grant them that. But millions of children are taught that they will be judged by the company they keep. Are we not to hold a candidate for President of the United States of America to the same standards we hold our children?

In all honesty according to most of the whacko's out there not if he's the first legitamate black candidate. I would love to a strong Conservative Black candidate run, imagine how much of a positive that would be for the Black community....plus i'd love to see how Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson tried to handle the situation.

Michael Steel comes to mind. His only draw back is lack of experience but he has more experience than Barry. I'd love to see McCain pick Steel as his running mate.

It's times like this that I wish we had a Republican to vote for. This McCain just keeps finding new and creating ways to enrage conservatives. Like Jackie Mason said, Our guy stinks, but theirs stinks worse.

I paid $3.70 for gas yesterday and didn't like it. This morning I went past a gas station where it was $3.75, the next station was selling it for $3.80. We can thank McCain and Clinton and all of their other buddies for opposing any new domestic oil drilling.
