I am not the least bit surprised to see that Obama has surrounded himself with such radical thinking, far-left liberals, after all he sat for twenty years under the tutelage of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and kept company with Bill Ayers. Still, to have a man of Sharpton's caliber advising him on racial issues and other civil right issues is questionable. Could it be that Obama is guilty by association? Many have claimed that this saying is pure fiction and fallacy, but Obama may be the exception, and even worse, proving it to be more than a fallacy after all? So what do you think? Guilty by association, or is Sharpton a non-factor and positive influence on Obama and his policies regarding racial issues in America?
