Know Them By Their Endorsements

Editorial - June 24th, 2008 - Investor's Business Daily

Unlike Obama, whose endorsers include Oprah Winfrey, Hulk Hogan, Michael Moore and Jane Fonda, McCain got one from a different sort — the icy commissar who ran the Hanoi Hilton during the Vietnam War.

The BBC tracked down Tran Trong Duyet, a communist who held McCain and other U.S. servicemen in the notoriously inhuman conditions. There, American servicemen were starved, tortured, beaten, kept in solitary confinement and forced into communist propaganda stunts, all in violation of the Geneva Conventions.

"McCain is my friend," the former jailer told the BBC. "If I was American, I would vote for him."

Kim Jong Il, Moammar Gadhafi, Daniel Ortega and Fidel Castro, along with most of the leaders of the various components of the Islamofascist movement dedicated to our destruction, are a few of the anti-American leaders who have endorsed Barack Obama. They universally praise him in code speak for being a good marxist, not for being a man who impressed even his enemies with his character and courage.

As noted in this editorial:
John McCain is winning grudging respect by forgiving his enemies and projecting strength of character. Barack Obama, on the other hand, attracts dictators because he projects a weakness that seems to serve their interests. Based on these endorsements, who would be a better president?

Do Obama's supporters here, the one's who get to vote, not pay any attention to the implications of the open and enthusiastic support for their candidate of those around the world who hate us?
