Oops! Democrat Narrative Fail: 1996 Socialist Advertisement Unearthed, With Barack Obama Headlining as a Featured Speaker

Gee, I guess he really is a socialist, despite all of the frequent denials.

And it looks like Andrew Breitbart's legacy -- including the great vetting of Obama that old media never bothered to do -- continues apace, this time courtesy of BuzzFeed (via Weasel Zippers):

It's a reminder that the President presented himself as much more progressive during his time in Chicago. In this little-seen advertisement that ran in the Hyde Park Herald in 1996, Obama was listed on a panel sponsored by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), University of Chicago Democrats, and University of Chicago DSA. He also supported gay marriage back then.

The Real Revo explains the strategy that Democrats have in mind. Hint: Obama's promise to "fundamentally transform" America? It's real.

Obama ran for Senate as the New Party Candidate in 1996. The New Party's full name is The New Socialist Party.

How should we respond were Obama to say, "Hey, I'm no Socialist; I was just a speaker."?

Well, his presidential aren't socialist in the least, so not sure what some 15+ year old pamphlet is supposed to prove?
