Just look at "O"'s advisors, cabinet members and hangers on. So many self proclaimed communists and socialist as to make your eyeballs spin. If the shoe fits.
And by the way, your pathetic attempt to inject racial epithet equivalency is just that-pathetic.

Try Van Jones. Try Jarrett, even Axelrod says the biggest influence in his life was his communist party member father.
Let's not forget "O"'s own father, an outspoken communist. We won't delve into Ayers and his wacky bride who launched "O"'s career.

Who was the #1 visitor to the WH in "O"'s first term? That's right, the self proclaimed communist head of the SEIU.

As for Van Jones and Andy Stern, there are lots of YouTube clips of giving their own self proclamations. Ayers and the rest of the Weathermen? Are you kidding me? Ayers is still making the speaker circuit spouting the same old cr$p. Go read any of his books. Nice that he is still teaching America's youth. As for Obama's father, look it up yourself, plenty of sources, even in Obama's own mini biography. As for Jarrett, whose father was a leading member of the US Communist Party and Axelrod, whose father edited a communist paper in NYC, I'll leave a little homework for you.

GFY, I was out doing chores. Are you five years old? Do you need someone to type in a YouTube address for you? While you are at it, why don't you type in the name of Franklin Marshall Davis, "O" 's mentor at university and one of his mother's lovers. Another well known communist. And no, I will not do your work for you.
I am glad you are so upset about this. There is hope for you yet.
In a wide-ranging and sometimes contentious interview with Michel Martin of NPR, GOP Congressman Allen West discussed his time in Congress, his adverse relationship with the media, and his tough re-election defeat. He also dropped a surprising analogy at the end of the interview that may portend a future run for higher office.

Most of the interview is a must-read, but West's exposition of his difficult re-election campaign is of particular interest:

I'm saying when you sit up and call a 22-year veteran - look. My father served in World War II, my brother in Vietnam....
