“New Party” Obama Revelations

Stanley Kurtz, writing for National Review Online, expanded upon a period in Obama’s past when Obama openly supported, and apparently joined and sought the endorsement of, the “New Party,” a European-type socialist-leaning ACORN-affiliated group.  The New Party was so outside the mainstream back in the 1990s, they had to work through the front-group “Progressive Chicago” which Obama had joined earlier.

Kurtz implies that had this been known and vetted properly in the 2008 campaign, these radical associations would have been a real issue with voters.  In my opinion this would have only marginally affected the general election in the midst of the obnoxious MSM swooning back then, but most certainly would have moved many primary voters and super-delegates in Hillary’s direction.  That’s important.

But, all the Obama subterfuge means that he was either afraid or embarrassed of these facts coming out.  That makes the issue fair-game if the GOP wants to push it.  If I were Romney, I’d let surrogates decided whether or not to run with this one.  However, if it catches on Romney could easily compare Obama’s manifest socialist roots to this administration’s failed policies.
