While the leftist hacks were engaged in their slanderous attacks on Mitt Romney, they continued to ignore Barack Obama's mysterious 20-year Chicago period.
As a community organizer, was Obama volunteering at rummage sales and soup kitchens? Hardly. He was working overtime with Chicago's radical left network of universities, foundations, unions and lawyers.
Obama was heavily involved in organizations that advocate the Cloward-Piven strategy, a plan to overload the welfare system so the government collapses and can be rebuilt in a more "fair" way.
Sound crazy? Look it up. Then ask yourself why welfare (32 percent increase) and food stamp usage (71 percent increase) have skyrocketed under Obama.
But who cares? An irrational hatred of George W. Bush and the GOP, plus a cultish devotion to Obama, have driven enough foolhardy voters to approve Obama's "fundamental change" of our nation -- whatever that might mean.
