If you’re like me, and you’ve been somewhat perplexed by some of the things the Obama Administration has been doing, you need look no further than a blog posting from 2008 by one of the founders of the Weather Underground; Mark Rudd.
Back in ’08, it appears Rudd was trying to assure his fellow radicals and progressives that what Obama was going to do would have reason, and in the end, they would all be able to understand it in retrospect. Believe me. Nothing this president has done has been without reason, either by action or inaction. His choices, after reading Rudd’s piece, are all very clear to me now.
To begin with, Rudd explains how Obama got elected in the first place, and why he positioned himself the way he did in his piece titled “Let’s Get Smart About Obama:”
Obama is a very strategic thinker. He knew precisely what it would take to get elected and didn’t blow it. He used community organizing methods to mobilize a base consisting of many people who had never voted before or who regularly don’t vote.
