I am so tired of being told that Barack Obama's association with left-wing radicals has nothing to do with this campaign. The character and judgement of the President of The United States absolutely is important to this campaign.
One of the first lessons that you are taught as a child is be careful who you hang out with and don't hang out with the wrong crowd. We are taught not to let the influence of our friends affect us. Don't give in to peer pressure. Why are we taught these things if it truly does not matter in life?
Let's take a look at the list of Barack Obama's friends:
1. Tony Rezko-Felon
2. William Ayers-Terrorist
3. Bernadine Dohrn-Terrorist
4. Reverend Wright-Radical
5. Reverend Pfleger-Radical
6. Rashid Khalidi-Supports attacks on Israel
I won't go into details on each of these characters. All you have to do is Google their names and you will find more than enough information on them. I don't even believe this is a complete list of his questionable relationships. "Guilt By Association" does and should matter.
How many average Americans can name one radical friend that they have been associated with? How many would be able to name six? I'm sure that people in Pittsburgh, Dayton, Grand Rapids, and Terre Haute have all kinds of radical people in their lives.
These are people who were friends or mentors of Barack Obama for years, some for over twenty years. Do you really think that they had no influence in his life at all?
Barack Obama-you can't pick your family, but you sure have chosen some interesting friends!!!!!
