RUSH: Hey, hey, folks, quick question here. Would it matter to you if you found out that Mitt Romney was a member of a socialist third party back in the 1990s, who wanted to basically make America like a Western European Social Democracy? Would that matter to you? It would? Would it matter to you if Romney were a member of the Nazi party back in the nineties? So you think it would disqualify Romney? If you found out that Romney was a member of a left-wing socialist third party and did everything he could to cover it up and lie about it, that'd matter to you now in 2012? You'd give him the thumb, he's gone. All right.
Well, would it matter to you if Barack Obama, it was learned, was a member of a third party, Socialist Party, who had as its objective to transform America into a Western European socialist type Democracy? In 2012, would that matter to you? Other than the Democrat Party, right. Would it matter to you? Well, 'cause in Obama's case, it's true.
Stanley Kurtz, who writes at National Review and National Review Online, has been tracking -- it's almost been a career move for Kurtz, the last four years -- been tracking the radical past of Barack Obama. He's the best at ferreting it out. He's one of the few who's had any interest in it in the mainstream journalism community as it were. He has written a book. We have interviewed, we've talked with Stanley Kurtz for the Limbaugh Letter I think on a couple of occasions about this. And he now has a post, an update based on more research, Stanley Kurtz does.

Florida Anchor Barbara West Responds to Controversial Biden Interview
WEST: You may recognize this famous quote: From each according to his abilities to each according to his needs. Thats from Karl Marx. How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?
BIDEN: Are you joking? Is this a joke?
BIDEN: Or is that a real question?
WEST: Thats a question.
BIDEN: He is not spreading the wealth around. Hes talking about giving the middle class an opportunity to get back the tax breaks they used to have.
WEST: What do you say to the people who are concerned that Barack Obama will want to turn America into a Socialist country much like Sweden?
BIDEN: I dont know anybody who thinks that, except the far right-wing of the Republican Party.
They could unearth good quality video of bam executing Treyvon Martin execution style, and there would be those who would brush it off as a foolish indiscretion not worth discussing. He was “blindsighted” by the heat of the moment as Ashleigh Banfield would say.
Yo, Rush, welcome to the party. You’re only about 4 years late. FR knew about this before the election. You could have reported on it but just like the other talking heads shied away from it.
what do they mean WAS a member? he probably still IS a member
“Yo, Rush, welcome to the party. Youre only about 4 years late. FR knew about this before the election. You could have reported on it but just like the other talking heads shied away from it”
Thank you! I was sure I remembered this. The story went around with a photo of Obama attending one of the Socialists events.
Yes, I think I even posted that picture once. That was a couple computers back so I don’t have it saved now and I wasn’t able to find it online a couple months ago so it’s likely been scrubbed. Glad you remember it, too.
No, that’s not it. It was more square and gray toned rather than pinkish.
the underlinings were there when I first saw it.
The New Party was developed on the model of New York state's minor parties, which provide an additional party line candidates can win votes on. In New York, all the votes for a candidate are totaled together, which ever party line they run on, so the Conservative, or Working Families, or Right to Life, or the Liberal, or the Socialist, or (at one time) the American Labor Party could provide a candidate's margin of victory. In that way a minor party can have a greater influence on politics.
Most states don't allow this. When a court case which attempted to force the New York system on Minnesota failed, the New Party declined and eventually dissolved. If Obama had any political sense at all back in those days he probably was never actually a member of the New Party, though he certainly courted their support.
No, the pic I was thinking of was closer to that first one with people posing for the camera. It doesn’t really matter since we know he was a member. If only the general public would know it.
