Critics of Senator Barack Obama make a strategic mistake when they talk about his "past associations." That just gives his many defenders in the media an opportunity to counter-attack against "guilt by association."
We all have associations, whether at the office, in our neighborhood or in various recreational activities. Most of us neither know nor care what our associates believe or say about politics.
Associations are very different from alliances. Allies are not just people who happen to be where you are or who happen to be doing the same things you do. You choose allies deliberately for a reason. The kind of allies you choose says something about you.
Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, William Ayers and Antoin Rezko are not just people who happened to be at the same place at the same time as Barack Obama. They are people with whom he chose to ally himself for years, and with some of whom some serious money changed hands.
Some gave political support, and some gave financial support, to Obama's election campaigns, and Obama in turn contributed either his own money or the taxpayers' money to some of them. That is a familiar political alliance but an alliance is not just an "association" from being at the same place at the same time.
Obama could have allied himself with all sorts of other people. But, time and again, he allied himself with people who openly expressed their hatred of America. No amount of flags on his campaign platforms this election year can change that.
Unfortunately, all that most people know about Barack Obama is his own rhetoric and that of his critics. Moreover, some of his more irresponsible critics have made wild accusations that he is not an American citizen or that he is a Muslim, for example.

Who is The Real Barack Obama?
Obama's "Unholy Alliance" -- Marxist Radicalism in support of Islamist Radicalism
Click the links -- Send them to everyone: media, elected officials of all parties, campaign organizers, friends, family, neighbors -- the naive and unsuspecting Obama supporters you know.
Read the evidence indicating that Barack Obama seeks to grow government either directly into socialism, or into economic collapse, in order to bring an ACORN-agitated Socialist revolution. That was the goal of Saul Alinsky. That is the Cloward-Piven Strategy apparently of Frank Marshall Davis, Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour, ACORN, William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, et. al., who have played such essential roles in the development of both the private and public Barack Obama.
James Simpson, a former White House economist, has just published "Barack Obama & the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis" - on AmericanThinker.com at http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/09/barack_obama_and_the_strategy.html
Listen to this Interview of James Simpson, by Sandy Rios, Tuesday 9/30 - WYLL 1160AM, Chicago, IL
Further documentation connecting the dots of all the neo-Marxists who have invested in the development of Barack Obama may be found on discoverthenetworks.org
Simpson documents his research in his article, providing Web links. He provides a rough flow chart.
Let's change things for these murderous Marxists.
Give everyone in America a new vocabulary term: The Cloward-Piven Strategy.
And I have a question to the Obama investigators out there: Is it possible for someone to have roughly projected the time of the mortgage crisis -- with one or more banks? Based upon such data as default projections, could it have been possible to even trigger it? Herbert and Marion Sandler, in 2006, for example?

More on the the Islamist/Radical side:
Sowell is spot on once again, as always. His use of cold logic in societal and cultural issues is impeccable.
McCain has got to get Obama to answer the question of EXACTLY when and where he met Bill Ayers, and what exactly did he and Ayers do together.
Obama could then be caught in a lie, perhaps with videotape or testimony of someone with the truth.
Excellent post, thanks.
I’d bet BO would tap dance around any questions like that but you’re correct, McCain should try.
Six Degrees of Barack Obama.....The End is in sight!
It seems Chuck Schumer caused the run on Indymac. Did he do it on purpose prior to the election?
Excerpted - “Obama could have allied himself with all sorts of other people. But, time and again, he allied himself with people who openly expressed their hatred of America. No amount of flags on his campaign platforms this election year can change that.”
This, for all intents and purposes, is my standard answer, when asked why my opposition to Barack Obama is so visceral.
I think I will put it on a T-shirt.
Ayers and his execrable wife are very much allies of Obama. Don’t be mistaken about that.
And note how Mrs. Obama, that angry, unpleasant, never satisfied, always complaining wife, has been pushed out of sight.
Oh, yes. And Harry Reid's loose lips drove the insurance companies down further, last week.
Sen. Reid's loose lips sink insurance stocks, Los Angeles Times.
I like and admire Thomas Sowell, but I think he is mistaken about Obama not being a Muslim.
Yes, they couldn’t shut Michelle up and she couldn’t restrain herself so they made her go away and it’s obvious.
