Obama’s “Lost Years”

Saturday, August 2, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Stanley Kurtz has a must read article in the new Weekly Standard which details the hard left voting record of Barack Obama as a state senator in Illinois. The bottom line:

As details of Obama’s early political career emerge into the light, his associations with such radical figures as Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, Reverend James Meeks, Bill Ayers, and Bernardine Dohrn look less like peculiar instances of personal misjudgment and more like intentional political partnerships. At his core, in other words, the politician chronicled here is profoundly race-conscious, exceedingly liberal, free-spending even in the face of looming state budget deficits, and partisan. Elected president, this man would presumably shift the country sharply to the left on all the key issues of the day-culture-war issues included. It’s no wonder Obama has passed over his Springfield years in relative silence.
