Jeffery Lord was a political director in the Reagan White House. He wrote an article at The American Spectator on October 14, 2008 about the interconnections between Obama and much of what has been hogging the headlines for the last 2-3 weeks, aside from the presidential election, specifically the economy.
“That bright, scarlet philosophical thread that runs straight from the bombs of Bill Ayers to the sermons of Jeremiah Wright to the political shenanigans of Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd has gradually revealed itself to be a very long fuse to a spectacular explosion of financial and political scandal. An explosion linking everything from the political blackmail of institutions like J.P. Morgan to the financial manipulations of Franklin Raines and Fannie Mae and stunningly connects to ACORN and Obama himself. Last and certainly not least, this same fuse led directly to the destruction of your personal wealth — your money — and is even now poised to steal your votes and destroy the possibility of an honest election.”
