    In our first editorial after Barack Obama's historic victory in November 2008, we acknowledged that "we were witnessing an event in which all Americans can take justifiable pride."

    "More than any other development," we said, "the election of an African-American as president will show that most of us have indeed moved on, overcoming prejudice and fulfilling the promise than anyone can achieve anything in this great country if they set their mind to it."

    But the election of this charismatic and well-spoken new leader may be momentous in another way, we added. "We may have elected not only one of the least experienced candidates in our history, but also one who may be guided by some principles different from what we're used to and on which the nation was founded.

    "In fact, we may be installing the first president who openly favors change that, as unaccustomed as we are to the word, can only be described as socialistic."

    We didn't use that word lightly. It came only after we thoroughly examined Obama's policy positions and his entire background in a 16-part series that confirmed he was a leftist who would surround himself with radicals bent on redistributing the nation's wealth and taking control of key industries.

    The series, titled "Audacity of Socialism," was dismissed by the media elite, including even some conservative pundits, as "over the top." Many frowned on the use of the s word. But now socialist, socialism and neoMarxist are terms used frequently to describe the president's income redistribution schemes, government spending nostrums and shadow Cabinet full of radicals.

    Before the election of 2008, few Americans described Obama as liberal, let alone socialist. Polls typically reflect media opinion, and the media by and large portrayed Obama as a moderate. Now his far-left views are obvious, and for the first time most Americans see Obama as governing from the left.

    What we warned of then is now governance, though we take no pleasure in the validation. The pending government takeover of the medical system (one-sixth of the economy), as well as the ownership stakes taken in autos and banking, not to mention the demonization and planned destruction of the private insurance industry, were foretold by us, along with the accumulation of power to the federal government in the name of "crisis" upon "crisis."

    We also documented Obama's association with Marxists and acolytes of Saul Alinsky, far-left father of community organizing, which predated his appointment of Van Jones, John Holdren, Mark Lloyd, Cass Sunstein and the rest of the statist czars.

    I don't know how anyone can find him charismatic or well spoken. He emphasizes the wrong syllables of the words he speaks. He almost stutters and pauses way too much. if he doesn't have a teleprompter he just appears stupid. He is our first affirmative action president.

    McCain and his campaign staff did a piss poor job in eductating the electorate of Obama's qualifications, his politicial agenda and his liberal/socialistic voting record. The Tea Party crowd needs to take over the Repub party. Otherwise, we will be screwed.

    Took me fifteen seconds to figure this out.
