Obama keeps bad company

I’ve said it here all year long:  Barack Obama (and John McCain, as it goes without saying) keeps some questionable company.  (And I’m not talking about Bill Ayers)  Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! has an interview transcript online that’s worth reading.

I’ve previously noted that Obama’s walked the Zionist walk pretty well so far.  Now we know why:

Another key Obama adviser, Dennis Ross. Ross, for many years under both Clinton and Bush 2, a key—he has advised Clinton and both Bushes. He oversaw US policy toward Israel/Palestine. He pushed the principle that the legal rights of the Palestinians, the rights recognized under international law, must be subordinated to the needs of the Israeli government—in other words, their desires, their desires to expand to do whatever they want in the Occupied Territories.

There are a couple of other advisers to Obama that are mentioned in the interview as well, but this one shows best that it’ll be business as usual in the Obama White House — nothing’s gonna change much at all, but next to Bush he’ll look like an improvement.

If you are tired of business as usual, vote Nader tomorrow.

  1. BAD COMPANY?

    THIS ONE WANTED TO KILL MORE PEOPLE THAN HITLER

    FACTS, JUST FACTS, ONLY FACTS

    FACTS THAT SHOULD SCARE EVERYONE

  2. Obama’s list of blatant lies and anti-American friends and mentors, including a long list of communists, is so extensive that it would take pages to detail them all. This man is clever, but he is also pure evil and plans to convert our great country into a communist dictatorship or even a Muslim nation. The FACTS are that he was indeed raised as a Muslim, and that he is definitely a communist.

  3. @ Denni: Obama is not a Muslim, but even if he was, I don’t see how being Muslim should disqualify anyone from being a candidate for public office in the United States. This nation was founded on religious freedom and the idea that one’s political ideas could be weighted equally against all others.

    Secondly, Obama’s few radical friends are more anti-imperialist than anti-American. I like those people okay, we need to contract the empire and focus on the many domestic problems we’re going through. (More airplanes and bases won’t put food on Americans’ tables.) I’m more concerned with the policy-makers he will surround himself with, who will most certainly have imperial/corporate ambitions.
