Wait, what? You mean Obama is a socialist. Color me shocked…

NRO – On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal.

Minutes of the meeting on January 11, 1996, of the New Party’s Chicago chapter read as follows:

Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party “Candidate Contract” and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.

    After President
    Obama’s free market “doesn’t work” and “has never worked”
    speech in Kansas recently, I’m not surprised.


    [ Barrack Hussein Obama ] himself
    said “…he chose his friends carefully…Marxist professors and
    structural Feminists…” (Dreams of My Father)

    [ John Drew ] Obama’s peers from Occidental College,
    described Obama as an “ardent” “Marxist-Leninist” who
    “was in 100 percent, total agreement with [his] Marxist professors.”


    The real question is. . . just how much more damage will
    Obama inflict in the next 6 months before he gets the boot.
