    Unlike Obama . Most America founding fathers are people like George Washington, Thomas Jeffereson, Abe Lincoln , Benjamin Franklin.. Even John F Kennedy.. I always admired him even though I am a conservative. I thought Clinton was a great president. Of course he had help from the REP controlled congress and Senate.. But he did great. He knew when he should come to the Center. Not Obama ..


    Here are alist of people Obama admires.. This list goes on for a few pages..

    WND - mentors

    Barack Obama Sr.: “All of my life, I carried a single image of my father, one that I tried to take as my own,” Obama wrote in “Dreams From My Father.” What was that image? It was “the father of my dreams, the man in my mother’s stories, full of high-blown ideals.”

    Obama adds, “It was into my father’s image … that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself.”

    Though Obama said little about what those “ideals” were, they crystallized in the form of a 1965 paper, written by the senior Obama and published in the East African Journal. In that paper, titled, “Problems Facing Our Socialism,” the elder Obama advocated the communal ownership of land and even the forced confiscation of privately controlled land. He also called for the nationalization of “European” and “Asian” owned enterprises, and advocated handing over control of these operations to the “indigenous” black population. Further, Obama’s father wanted to increase taxes on the rich, even up to the 100 percent level, arguing that “there is no limit on taxation if the benefits derived from public services by society measures up to the cost in taxation which they have to pay.” Incidentally, this concept is not totally foreign to the younger Obama, whose plan to “spread the wealth around” by raising taxes conceptually mimics his fathers plan.

    Frank Marshall Davis: As a teen, Obama’s mother abandoned him in Hawaii so she could go to Indonesia to seek a Ph.D. At the age of 16, left on his own, Barack Obama developed a relationship with a non-family member – reputed Marxist Frank Marshall Davis. Davis, a former Chicago resident, was a member of the Communist Party USA and an apologist for the Soviet Union. The 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What’s more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee, accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations. Obama describes “Frank and his old Black Power dashiki self” as advising him before he left for Occidental College in 1979 at the age of 18. Passages from “Dreams From My Father” suggest that Frank Marshall Davis was something akin to a surrogate dad to Obama in those days. Obama’s only contact when he moved to Chicago was Davis.

    Alice Palmer: Obama’s predecessor in the Illinois State Senate, Alice Palmer introduced Obama to Chicago’s radical elite in the living room of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn’s home back in 1995 and endorsed him that year in front of a crowd of 200 supporters. Palmer was an active radical leftist in the decade before she picked Obama for her seat. The FBI notes that she served on the board of the U.S. Peace Council, a front organization and affiliate of the Soviet World Peace Council. Palmer attended the 27th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and came away favorably impressed by the Soviet system.

    Gregory Galluzzo: A former Jesuit priest and executive director of the Gamaliel Foundation, Galluzzo was interview by New Republic’s Ryan Lizza and showed him the training manual he uses with new organizers. Galluzzo told Lizza that many new trainees have an aversion to Saul Alinsky’s gritty approach because they come to organizing as idealists rather than realists. Galluzzo, along with fellow trainer Mike Kruglik, schooled Obama in Alinsky tactics. The Developing Communities Project, Obama’s first employer in Chicago, was part of the Gamaliel network of organizations.

    Mike Kruglik: Kruglik was a regional director for the Gamaliel Foundation. Like his boss, Greg Galluzzo, Kruglik also helped train Obama on Alinsky organizing methods. Kruglik was also involved in 2007 with indoctrinating Obama campaign volunteers on Alinsky methods.

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright: Rev. Wright was a close friend of the Obamas. He officiated their wedding, baptized their children, and Obama regularly touted his 20-year membership in Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ as proof of his devotion to Christianity – until remarks by Rev. Wright became an embarrassment to his campaign. A closer look at Obama’s pastor and longtime church reveals that Trinity practices – and preaches – Black Liberation Theology, and Wright sees “his own form of Christianity as profoundly different from Christianity as typically practiced by most American whites and blacks.” During one of his more memorable anti-American screeds, Rev. Wright said, “The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people.”

    Trinity church gave between $5,000 and $10,000 to the Community Renewal Society, which was a pet project of Bill Ayers’ father, Tom Ayers.

    John L. McKnight: John McKnight is a professor at Northwestern University and sits on the board of the Gamaliel Foundation. McKnight is yet another of the Gamaliel trainers who schooled Obama in Alinsky tactics and methods. In his memoir, Obama said he wanted to go to Harvard Law School with the goal of making large-scale change as a national politician, and McKnight was the individual who wrote him a letter of recommendation. Obama said that being tutored by McKnight, Galluzzo and Kruglik was “the best education I ever had, better than anything I got at Ha

    You did not read ONE word on my post but you criticize Just read Obama's Book . His BOOK , HIS WORDS. Then you will really see the man behind the curtain.. Of course you live life with Rose colored glasses and believe and hang on to every word this man says.. He is NOT the second coming of christ. He is here to destroy this country. This is what he has set out to do , the day his grandfather introduced him to Frank Marshal. A radical communist Poet..

    He is just like Soros. Soros has brought down many countries. Now his eyes are set on America . But Soros is getting old so he is passing his baton to Obama

    So who mentor was Reagans when he lied about his tax relief act which rose taxes on the poor and cut them for the rich, or the other ten times he raised taxes and enlarged the federal governemnt, and decided that our rights were not necessary to fight the war on drugs?

    You are a brainwashed right wing hack, that's why no one with an ounce of sanity would even think about looking at an ultra-right wing propaganda site like the would nut daily.

    We are not talking about Reagan, BUSH or any other past president. I am worried about what is GOING ON TODAY .. Not what happened years ago. The past is the past. We cant change things that happened then. What we can do is change the direction of our Future. That is all we have... Obama is a radical. His plan, is his fathers plan. He hated the colonies.Obamas father wanted America to be like a 3rd world country. This is coming from his own family members in Kenya.. The reason Obama will not help his brother George in Kenya , Because George Loves America and BHO does not ... He will put a smile on his face. Act like the nice guy while all the while he is stabbing us in the back..
