Obama's New Party

Stanley Kurtz at NRO gives us an update on an old story about Obama's first political party - the New Party.

New, as in 1917 "new".  Same philosophy as Lenin, but with a Chicago flare.

Obama's Third-Party History:

Knowing that Obama disguised his New Party membership helps make sense of his questionable handling of the 2008 controversy over his ties to ACORN.


The revelation in 2008 that Obama had joined an ACORN-controlled, leftist third party could have been damaging indeed, and coming clean about his broader work with ACORN might easily have exposed these New Party ties. Because the work of ACORN and the New Party often intersected with Obama’s other alliances, honesty about his ties to either could have laid bare the entire network of his leftist political partnerships.

Although Obama is ultimately responsible for deceiving the American people...

Here is our October 2008 post on the subject.
