Barack Obama is dancing again.
Defending himself regarding his association with Rashid Khalidi, PLO activist and Israel hater, who once held a fundraiser in his home for Obama, Barack said: "To pluck out one person who I know and who I've had a conversation with who has very different views than 900 of my friends and then to suggest that somehow that shows that maybe I'm not sufficiently pro-Israel, I think, is a very problematic stand to take," he said. "So we gotta be careful about guilt by association."
But, the truth is this is not a casual acquaintance and one can pluck out several associates of Obama that are also problems.
Tony Rezko, involved in bribery and other corruption, played a significant role in raising funds for his political campaigns and helped Obama and his wife get the home of their dreams.
Allison S. Davis, whose law firm (Davis Miner Barnhill & Galland) in 1993 hired Obama. This same law firm represented Tony Rezko's operations over the years, while Rezko raised cash for Obama's electoral campaigns. Davis became Rezko's personal financial partner in slum-redevelopment deals, which were then backed by a State Senator, Barack Obama.
William Ayers, a terrorist, hosted a fundraiser for Barack Obama and actively worked to secure Barack's first electoral victory in Illinois.
Jeremiah Wright, pastor of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ and Obama's spiritual leader for 20 years , blames America for starting the AIDS virus.
James Meeks, a pledged delegate to Obama and a member of the Illinois state senate once said, "We don't have slave masters, we got mayors. But they are still the same white people who are presiding over systems where black people are not able to be educated." He said this while preaching as a Baptist minister.
Every time Barack is confronted with one of these he does his little dance of guilt by association or selective snippets. But, the evidence keeps piling up that birds of a feather fly together.
