For those of us who grew up in the era when Weather Undergrounders Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn were familiar names in the news, it is always discomforting to be reminded of Barack Obama’s many associations with people of the radical left – Ayers, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, etc.

Such folks’ political thought never progressed beyond the 1960s because the revolutionary New Left didn’t disapear, it simply went on to graduate school and then careers, mostly in the mainstream media, the non-profits, the bureaucracy of state and local social work, and Blue State politics. Many bought BMWs and flat screens who nevertheless never stopped dreaming of revolution. In their hearts, they never stopped spelling it “Amerika.”

More recently, as the first year of the Obama administration has unfolded and the basic outlines of his domestic and foreign policies have emerged, that discomfort has steadily become more tangible as the radical roots of the Sixties have broken ground in the White House and now are spreading rapidly into every corner of the federal government.
