Sean and the FOBO’s (Friends of Barack Obama)

It started even before BHO was selected as the Democrat’s Great White Hope (“I hope I can stop feeling guilty about never having voted for a black president”). Sean Hannity did his best to bring people to their senses by pointing out that – black or not – he had a strange coterie of friends of the radical persuasion.

So 100 times a day, or so it seemed, the list of the O’s questionable friends would roll off his tongue : William Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Louis Farahkan, Father Pflegar, Tony Resko, Jeremiah Wright, and, sometimes, Khalid al-Mansour. A band of terrorists, racists and mobsters – not the run of the mill friends of those who would be president, but then BHO was not your run of the mill nominee.

Although he won the election (in case you haven’t been reminded of that by a Dem lately) Sean still likes to regularly remind everyone of Obama’s questionable taste in friends and associates. I’m guessing he just wants to keep in shape for the next election. The problem is, the list just keeps growing. Since the Onaugeration we already have to add (alphabetically, so no one’s nose gets bent) Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jong-il and Daniel Ortega.

I’m not sure even Sean, who reels off multiples like a Gatling gun, can keep up with all of the FOBO’s ( or HOBO’s - Homies of Barack Obama’s - if you’re from the ‘hood.) Whew! This guy needs a Facebook.

Even Sean might have to take a breath.

You can watch Sean question his choice of friends, part 1 if you’d like. There are 5 other segments, but who’s got time for all of the FOBO’s?
