Is it just me or do Obama supporters actually expend more effort denying facts that are provably true than they spend promoting plans and policies for good governance that are not. The most recent example of a fact they deny is outlined in this excellent article in National Review Online and quoted below:
Minutes of the meeting on January 11, 1996, of the New Party’s Chicago chapter read as follows:
Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party “Candidate Contract” and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.
The party’s official “statement of principles,” which candidates seeking endorsement from the Chicago chapter were asked to support, called for a “peaceful revolution” and included redistributive proposals substantially to the left of the Democratic party.
What's a little contract between friends trying to start a "peaceful revolution"?
