"If he becomes the nominee, all the Democrats in America will be viewed by the rest of the world as either utterly stupid, or totally corrupt." Barack Obama - Operation Board Games for Slumlords" Evelyn Pringle, April 7, 2008
By Michael Collins
I guess that means "the whole world is watching." They've already expressed their opinion of our government and it's not a pretty picture. It has to do with real issues.
Does the "Operation Board Games for Slumlords" article, others like it, or the attacks from the presidential candidates have any relationship to the real issues that we face as a nation?
Evelyn Pringle delivers a breathless critique of Barack Obama based on his past connections to civic and business figures in Illinois. This effort follows her series opener on Obama, The Wizard of Oz. In that effort we learned that "Obama is a political psychopath."
In this article, we're told right away that: "Barack Obama has a long history of working with Chicago Mayor Richard Daley and governors of Illinois, including the current Governor Rod Blagojevich, in doling government funding for housing development in Chicago"
Pringle asserts that "In Obama's case, a whole gang of slumlords in Illinois made their 'voices heard' by writing campaign checks to fund his rise to fame."
Unfortunately, we don't get any specifics directly linking Obama to any of the charges in the article; just a litany of allegations against past or present contributors and associates. Obama is somehow responsible for their bad behavior and alleged crimes
