When you have to run away from your past associations to remake yourself{take note David Brock} it means your old beliefs are in conflict with your new goals and aspirations. Wanting new power is a great way to rationalize all behavior and causes you to reject your basic roots and beliefs.
My faith is the cornerstone of my life. It is not something I could jettison in order to pursue ultimate power.

See this Chicago Tribune article:

The day after New Year's 1996, operatives for Barack Obama filed into a barren hearing room of the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners.

There they began the tedious process of challenging hundreds of signatures on the nominating petitions of state Sen. Alice Palmer, the longtime progressive activist from the city's South Side. And they kept challenging petitions until every one of Obama's four Democratic primary rivals was forced off the ballot.

Fresh from his work as a civil rights lawyer and head of a voter registration project that expanded access to the ballot box, Obama launched his first campaign for the Illinois Senate saying he wanted to empower disenfranchised citizens.

But in that initial bid for political office, Obama quickly mastered the bare-knuckle arts of Chicago electoral politics. His overwhelming legal onslaught signaled his impatience to gain office, even if that meant elbowing aside an elder stateswoman like Palmer.

Abandoning one's minister isn't quite the same as abandoning one's faith.

And yet -- there must have been something that attracted him for all of those years donchathink?

maryrose

H&R:
That example of Obama's behavior alone would be reason enough for me to never vote for him. It reminds me of Al Gore and his minions rejecting absentee ballots from the military overseas in 2000 during the recount fiasco. When I look back at that nightmare I can't believe how many times they recounted those ballots and for that I will never vote for sore loser Gore. I actually liked Lieberman.

vnjaqvet:
Now Wright's teachings and beliefs are an embarassment to Obama and could cause him votes so he is willing to throw him under the bus. It's like Hillary's old mentor that taught her about wealth distribution. Someone should resurrect him during the campaign. His ideas are definitely not mainstream.

Let's see.....

Imus was wrong and should have been fired, but rap music is Tom Maguire's fault; if 32 college kids are murdered Obama wants to talk about verbal violence; giving to charity once you think you're gonna run for president; dumping your minister in your run for president; start your career in politics by bare-knuckling another progressive out by challenging the signatures on their nominating petitions in court.

Obama is a serial cynicalizer.


Of course, none of this is really unique to Obama. And that's the point, there really isn't anything substantively unique about Obama. He's an ambitious politician.

You make Obama as an ambitios politician sound a lot like Hilary-oh right-they are cut from the same cloth...

Of course, you want to play cynical politics, you take this WaPo article and keep shoving it down the nutroots throats.....

Obama's speech at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs last week was pure John Kennedy, without a trace of John Mearsheimer. It had a deliberate New Frontier feel, including some Kennedy-era references ("we were Berliners") and even the Cold War-era notion that the United States is the "leader of the free world." No one speaks of the "free world" these days, and Obama's insistence that we not "cede our claim of leadership in world affairs" will sound like an anachronistic conceit to many Europeans, who even in the 1990s complained about the bullying "hyperpower." In Moscow and Beijing it will confirm suspicions about America's inherent hegemonism. But Obama believes the world yearns to follow us, if only we restore our worthiness to lead. Personally, I like it.

Not only does the article claim Obama to be an interventionist.........the author is...

Robert Kagan (born September 26, 1958) is an American neoconservative scholar and political commentator. He graduated from Yale University in 1980. He later earned a Masters from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and a PhD from American University in Washington, DC. He is a co-founder of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) and was one of the signers of the January 26, 1998, PNAC Letter sent to US President Bill Clinton. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Robert's brother Frederick and father Donald are also prominent American neoconservatives, and also affiliated with the PNAC.

I wonder how Pastor Wright would feel about Obama and the slumlord patron...

Obama, who has worked as a lawyer and a legislator to improve living conditions for the poor, took campaign donations from Rezko even as Rezko's low-income housing empire was collapsing, leaving many African-American families in buildings riddled with problems -- including squalid living conditions, vacant apartments, lack of heat, squatters and drug dealers.

I am not "shocked" in the Inspector Renault sense at this behavior from an ambitious politician.

Nor do I think that cynicism, ambition, or ruthlessness is a disqualifying quality in a candidate for presidential leadership in a time of war.

O/T on Corzine:
The motorcade did not use emergency lights, as it had been just before the accident.

The governor’s motorcade moved with the flow of traffic on Interstate 295, at some points sustaining speeds up to 70 miles per hour several minutes at a time, according to the speedometer of a vehicle traveling alongside; posted limits were 55 and 65. Capt. Al Della Fave, a state police spokesman, said the commander of the executive protection unit, which provides security and drivers for the governor, told him on Monday that the troopers in the motorcade had been instructed to adhere to posted speed limits.

From the article:

“The problems of poverty and racism, the uninsured and the unemployed, are not simply technical problems in search of the perfect 10 point plan,” Mr. Obama says in one of his standard campaign lines. “They are rooted in both societal indifference and individual callousness — in the imperfections of man.”


From the church website:

Given Obama's connections with crooked developers, I don't see why he doesn't team up with Hari al-Reid and Dianne Feinstein.

It would be an awesome team of crooks.

A bit problematic at the moment, perhaps. If Melanie Sloan at CREW takes note of the stink coming off a rotten Democrat (as she does with Feinstein) then the Dem is ready to be taken to the dump.

Will Sloan ever comment on the odor coming off of Hari? Not while he's a "leader".

I LOVE Australia and in particular John Howard for his stance on the war and his support of the US.

But this doesn't sit well with me at all.

CANBERRA (Reuters Life!) - Australians, long regarded as a nation of beer drinkers rivaled only by the Germans, seem to be turning soft, or sober.

After 113 years, the country's biggest selling beer, Victoria Bitter, or VB, is to be produced in a mid-strength version to keep pace with the country's fast-changing beer tastes.

Now brewer Foster's has decided for the first time to produce the beer in a weaker yellow-label version with 3.5 percent strength, down from 5 percent, as Australians abandon it for scores of more upscale "boutique" or craft beers.

Tops,

The "order of magnitude" comment actually obscures the real order of magnitude involved. The problem on this one is that the explanation of what actually occured would lead to MEGO in about 100 words. The short version is that the '96 Blum/Salibas investment in Perini was so far underwater by '99 that they were able (forced?) to take control in '00. With a little help from Dear Diane the situation was so "improved" by '05 that Blum was able to cash in. I don't think the $1.5B in Milcon contracts was the most important aspect at all. The real dough was in change orders on the Big Dig - if that manure pile was uncovered you'd find Kerry/Kennedy holding hands with Feinstein at the bottom.

Anyone can easily trace the investment aspect by reading the 8K/10K info on Perini. Well, anyone with a mania for minutiae.

The devil is in the details - this wasn't a 'passive' investment.

There fore, it is a condition to Closing (a) that the Senate Ethics Committee and regular counsel for the Senator on such matters shall each have given an opinion concerning RCBA's involvement with Seller that, in the reason able judgment of RCBA, does not require the imposition of material restrictions on the business of Seller or upon the ability of the Senator to vote on matters of concern to her constituents, and (b) that RCBA be assured by the Executive Committee of Seller's Board of Directors that it will cause Seller not to bid for a project when and if advised of RCBA's view that such bid could create a significant risk of exposing Seller, RCBA, PB, and/or the Senator to a conflict of interest problem.

    Maria Conchita Alonso kicks ass.

    After Watching Her Speak, Giuliani Was an Afterthought

    I’ll have a fuller report on Rudy Giuliani’s appearance at the Latino Coalition in Washington in a little bit, but I’ll first report that he was greatly overshadowed by the preceding speaker.

    Maria Conchita Alonso is probably best known as an actress and a singer, but the Cuban-born entertainer grew up in Venezuela, and is a vociferous opponent of that country’s strongman ruler, Hugo Chavez.

    She began by pointing out she deliberately wore red, and that the color and May Day were meant to be a celebration for workers, not for the Communist party. “We cannot let terrorists dictate our lives, so why acknowledge their claims and allow them to own a color red for a day? I wear red not in solidarity, but in protest of them!”

    Then Alonso ripped into Castro and Chavez with a rare combination of ferocity and wit. She told of leaving Cuba as a child with her family to start a new life in Venzuela, with her mother hiding money, jewelry, and even the family dog on the way out of the country. As Latino Coalition President Robert de Posada noted, “She lost her first home country to communism, and she refuses to let it happen again.”



    And of course, this sealed the deal...


    Referring to the former President’s thumbs-up regarding the last “election,” she declared, “Jimmy Carter ... should stick to counting peanuts, not votes.”



    If you click through and read, you'll notice in that last sentence I put in the ellipse to remove one thing with which I would disagree. But I'm letting it slide because the counting peanuts quip blinds me to any faults she may possess.

    The line-up of today's decision is quite interesting. The court effectively split 4-1-4. Judge Randolph wrote the majority opinion, holding that McDermott's disclosure of the tape was not protected by the First Amendment and violated House Ethics rules. He was joined by Chief Judge Ginsburg and Judges Henderson and Brown. Judge Sentelle wrote the dissent, arguing that McDermott's disclosure of the tape was fully protected by the First Amendment. His dissent was joined in full by Judges Garland, Rogers, and Tatel. Judge Griffith split the difference, joining the first part of Sentelle's dissent, but ultimately joining the majority. As Griffith explained:

    "The truth of Jefferson’s letter"

    The Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Thursday, released yet another press statement which read in part:

    In his letter to the Senate, Tuesday, on the alleged use of PTDF funds in TIB to advance the political interest of Vice President Atiku Abubakar, President Obasanjo claimed to have been alerted by U.S. Congressman William Jefferson.

    The letter also claimed that the deposit was accessed by Otunba Oyewole Fasawe who used it in the pursuit of his business interests.The Atiku Abubakar Campaign will like to state that the President’s account regarding the sequence of events in this matter is typically, false. The facts of the matter are these:

    Otunba Oyewole Fasawe was invited by a senior official of his bank, Trans International Bank, TIB to meet certain investors at the 2003 Sullivan Economic Summit in Abuja who were seeking a Nigerian collaborator to bring a new American communication technology to Nigeria.

    Otunba Fasawe was, thereafter, introduced to US Congressman, William Jefferson who promised to facilitate the introduction of the American telecommunication technology to Nigeria. On the strength of assurances by the Congressman who was Chairman of the American house sub_committee on Nigeria, Fasawe applied for a loan facility from TIB, whose official alerted him of the investment opportunity.

    Otunba Fasawe, thereafter, transferred $6.7 million to iGate, the company introduced by Congressman Jefferson by January 2003. After waiting endlessly and Jefferson was not forthcoming with the equipment as promised, Otunba Fasawe sought the help of his friend, President Obasanjo to use his contact with the American government to get Jefferson to return his money.This is in addition to the persistent pressure on Jefferson and officials of iGate.

    Jefferson’s letter dated 9th June 2004 was written six months after Fasawe had persistently put him (Jefferson) under tremendous pressure to refund his money or face legal action.

    This also puts to question the claim that the President’s inquisition was prompted by the Congressman’s complaint and that the letter was the first time he knew about the matter.

    The truth is that Jefferson’s letter was prompted by the petition of Otunba Fasawe to President Obasanjo and President Bush of America.

    Jefferson could not validly complain of the source of the NDTV funds after keeping the money for six months. The letter from Jefferson was, therefore, a blackmail to escape the imminent legal action by Fasawe who had become restless over his (now apparently) bad investment.

    It is noteworthy that President Obasanjo received the letter from Jefferson in June 2004 but did not deem it fit to cause EFCC to investigate the allegations until after the defeat of the third term agenda in May 2006, more than two years after.

    It is also important to note that Congressman Jefferson whose integrity President Obasanjo believes to the point of engendering a national crisis has the following profile:

    He (Jefferson) is under investigation in the U.S. for collecting bribes to discharge his official responsibilities.

    Jefferson, who collected $6.5 million from Otunba Fasawe to promote the new American telecommunication technology in Nigeria took Lori Mody, promoter of iGate to Vice President Abubakar, to upstage Otunba Fasawe from the business. If Atiku was part of the NDTV plot, will Jefferson be so stupid to solicit his help to upstage his own (Atiku’s) company?

    Jefferson collected $100,000 from Lori Mody and told her that he had passed same to Vice President Abubakar but the money was later found wrapped in a foil paper and hidden in his freezer.

    It is curious that Mr. President who is privy to these facts will attach any weight to the claims of Jefferson and desecrate the National Assembly by sending the blackmail paper to it.

    The truth is that Jefferson’s letter was prompted by the petition of Otunba Fasawe to President Obasanjo and President Bush of America.

    Sounds like Jefferson was defrauding everyone - Mody, Nigeria and Vernon Jackson of Igate - there was a report that said that Jefferson was planning on pushing Vernon out as head of IGate...what a crumbball.

    Tops,

    It just shows the difference between a Democratic Representative and a Democratic Senator. If Reid or Feinstein or Obama or Kennedy or Kerry had given Cold Cash a hand, the theft would have been much harder to detect.

    The Democratic Senate Leadership Conference should offer graft lessons for Democratic Representatives so that this sort of exposure of petty grifting doesn't sully the party's reputation for reasonably quiet extraction.

    There are (well, were) 15 or so Republican Reps that could have used similiar help on the Abramoff deal. There don't seem to be many Republican grifters left to teach.

    Jane,

    I didn't see anything that reflects upon the Perini family in what I've read. Construction companies tend to become sclerotic over time and it really looks as if the family recognized that value wasn't being added (or maintained) and unloaded at a reasonably propitious time.

    The stock was trading in the $7-8 range when Blum/Tutor bought in '96 and had tanked to less than $3 by mid '00 when the conversion option was exercised. It was trading at $14-16 when Blum got out in '05 and it has gone as high as $43 recently.

    Blum is just fortunate to have had his wife's help in bailing him out of what was (at the time in '00) a bad investment. Even then, the overall rate of return from '96-'05 was pretty pathetic.

    What none of our PC liberals will admit, is that this is the NYT's second "hit piece" on Obama's religion.

    They're doing it, because they are carrying Hillary Clinton's water for her!

    They've attacked Romney for being a Mormon, they've attacked Obama's religious background, and they'll do others; the whole message is that Bill & Hillary's religion is good, everyone else's is bad!

    You see, the type of religion, that allows you to get orally serviced by an Intern, then get ministered to by a corrupt, extortionist "minister", who does so, while his pregnant girlfriend is by his side, is "good" religion; but everybody else's, especially President Bush's, or anyone running against Hillary, is BAD!

    Don't take my comments above, as an endorsement of Obama.

    He's a cogential liar, just like Hillary.

    Even though it was a hit piece by the NYT, they dramatically underplayed his Islamic past.

    Obama, at the very least, is a Muslim practicing TAQIYYAH!

    How come no one has brought up the fact, that under Islamic law, Obama is recognized the world around, as a Muslim because his father was a Muslim.

    If he suddenly found "Jesus", as he claims, he is, technically, in the eyes of all Muslims, and APOSTATE, and deserving of immediate Death!

    Why don't we hear Radical Muslim pointing that out, and leading the charge?

    Very curious!

    Even IF he's a serious convert to Christianity, the brand of Afro-centric, Racist Christianity that he has choosen, in the mold of radical Afro-centric racists like Ivan van Sertima, Chacellor Williams and Cornel West, is not something that we want to see in the Oval Office, trust me!

    It's radical, it's racist, it's Anti-White, it's Anti-American, and most basically, it's complete and utter nonsense, going clear back to Marcus Garvey!

    Jeff Beatty Announces the "Beatty Exploratory Committee to Defeat Massachusetts Senator John Kerry

    BOSTON, MA APRIL 26, 2007 -- Jeff Beatty will officially announce the creation of a Senatorial Campaign Exploratory Committee to defeat John Kerry, Thursday evening, April 26, 2007 at the Best Western Hotel, Bourne Rotary, in Bourne, Massachusetts at 6:45pm.

    Beatty is a former Army Delta Force Officer and was in the first Black Hawk shot down, earning a Purple Heart while helping to rescue hundreds of Americans in Grenada. He was also a Special Agent advising the FBI National Hostage Rescue Team, and a former CIA Counter-Terrorism Officer with service in Europe and the Middle East.

    Beatty currently serves our state, and country, in the private sector as founder and president of TotalSecurity.US. He predicted the Atlanta Olympic Bomb three months in advance on the TODAY program and has provided anti-terrorist training and support to the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority, Boston Public Schools, Mass Highway, Mass Turnpike, the Pentagon, Statue of Liberty, The Super Bowl, The Rose Bowl, the Olympics and numerous other organizations nationwide.

    In 2006, Beatty entered the political world and ran for Congress against 5-term incumbent, Bill Delahunt, and received more votes than any other Massachusetts challenger. Beatty exceeded expectations and showed himself to be a formidable political force.

    With Polls showing support for Kerry at an all time low, please join us Thursday night in Bourne and meet the challenger who wants to be our next Senator, offering the citizens of Massachusetts the change they seek and the representation they deserve.

    For more information on the Beatty Exploratory Committee, please contact Bob Parks

    The press release is a understandably ambigous on how he actually did in his congressional run....

    2006 Results: Bill Delahunt (D) defeated Jeff Beatty (R) by 65-30%

    MA-10 described as...

    District Profile: Liberal politics, well-established on the Vineyard and Nantucket, have spread inland as well. The South Shore is generally Democratic territory.

    Cathy,

    I've never heard of him but I suspect H&R has it right (as usual) or (for a change) since Delahunt is a dem. I'd say that since all of MA is "generally Democratic territory" that's old news. What is significant about those districts is that they are for the most part wealthy. The buzz is that Kerry is ripe for being thrown off the bus - but I wouldn't underestimate the lengths he will go to, to make sure that doesn't happen. And he learned that stuff from the master (Kennedy).

    hit and run

    Even the idea! that someone! would run against! Kerry! is in line with the smear tactics of a desperate Republican party. Jeff Beatty is simply out to swift boat a valiant and brave American hero.
