Obama's Mother and Father Met in Russian Class

An interesting tidbit from this article in The New York Times:

In a Russian class at the University of Hawaii, she met the college’s first African student, Barack Obama.

While, of course, plenty of people have learned Russian over the years - and it's a fine language - surely I'm not the only one who finds it interesting that a woman described as a "fellow traveller" met a member of a communist-inspired movement in a Russian class in 1960?

Elsewhere, the Times describes her as an "idealist" and a friend describes her as someone who, "cared about the core issues" and, "was not afraid to speak truth to power." Euphemisms like that can only be hiding a red-tinged past for Senator Obama.

Say Adam about four years ago you said you were so confident about Iraq that you were going to buy Dinars as an investment.

So how's that portfolio doing buddy?

Wow, what a reach Adam. Even for you this is a new era of tinfoil hat wearing.

Even though it's right out there in the open, I think you should clarify what your overall thinking is. You keep brining up these assertions. What exactly do you think Obama is up to? Is he, in your opinion, actually a manchurian candidate? Do you honestly think that's a sane observation?
