    Obama's socialist backing goes back at least to 1996, when he received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) for an Illinois state senate seat. Later, the Chicago DSA newsletter reported that Obama, as a state senator, showed up to eulogize Saul Mendelson, one of the "champions" of "Chicago's democratic left" and a long-time socialist activist. Obama's stint as a "community organizer" in Chicago has gotten some attention, but his relationship with the DSA socialists, who groomed and backed him, has been generally ignored.

    DSA describes itself as the largest socialist organization in the United States and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. The Socialist International (SI) has what is called "consultative status" with the United Nations.

    So I take it you believe Bush has terrorist ties given his close family relationship with the Saud family....

    LOL typical Obamabot tactic. Change the subject to bush when your radical candidate is exposed. Happens everytime. It' like you try to justify this man's radical ties and shady lifestyle. I hope you have and continue to donate all your money to Obama. Please do.

    You do know that not everyone who finds your positions unacceptable is an "obamabot", right? He's not a radical. I'm not a radical. I just don't vote to put failures back in power. And you guys have had your day; f'd it all up. It's simply time to replace you with smarter and better.

    And don't talk to me about shady if you voted for Bush/Cheney twice.
