Obama’s relationships

John at Powerline points us to Obama’s reaction to the news the Tony Rezko has been convicted:

I’m saddened by today’s verdict. This isn’t the Tony Rezko I knew, but now he has been convicted by a jury on multiple charges that once again shine a spotlight on the need for reform.

From here John muses:

I could swear I've heard it somewhere before. Sure enough--the racist, anti-American Rev. Wright whom we've all seen on video wasn't the Rev. Wright whom Obama knew for 20 years, either. And the outrageously bigoted Father Pfleger wasn't the Pfleger whom Obama assiduously supported with earmarks--another form of political corruption.

Obama seems to suffer from a singular inability to "know" his most intimate associates.

While I certainly do not disagree – let’s take it even further. Obama seems to get nearly all of the important relationships exactly backward. Obama treats those who either are or should be enemies as friends and those who either are or should be friends as enemies. Obama draws praise from those who either are or should be enemies and condemnation from those who either are or should be friends.

Obama’s Friends:
Tony "Convicted Felon" Rezko
Jeremiah "God Damn America" Wright
Michael "America is the greatest sin against God" Phleger
James "We don't have slave masters. We got mayors" Meeks
Bill "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough" Ayers

Obama’s Foreign Supporters:
Hamas (since withdrawn?)
Fidel Castro
FARC

Enemies Obama Wants to Meet With:
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Kim Jong Il
Hugo Chavez

Allies Obama Wants to Piss Off:
Canada
Columbia
Pakistan
NATO

And Allies He Wants to Abandon:
Iraq

  3. You can add Israel to the allies the Bamster wants to abandon, and the U.K. to the allies he wants to piss off.

  4. "but now he has been convicted by a jury on multiple charges that once again shine a spotlight on the need for reform."

    What does this mean? Is it the multiple charges that shine a spotlight on the need for reform? Were the charges not already illegal, else why was he convicted? Do they need reforming "once again?" When were they reformed before? Our President has truly mastered the art of speaking gibberish.

    Thanks to Glenn (instapundit!) and Scott (powerline!) for the link, but this is, afterall a nearly 3 year old post.

    Back in the day ... 2008 ... I had the next post on my blog devoted to Obama and Israel: Obama's Sacrosanctifications, after he made a speech to AIPAC.

    So much has happened since then, that this post isnt' the proper place to try and put it all.
