Why no interest from the msm or the blogosphere on The New Party? According to Howard Kurtz, The New Party functioned as the political arm of the ‘non-partisan’ ACORN. WTF people. Mr. Silky Voice, well not lately, it has become Mr. Strident, Indignant Voice was smack dab in the middle of a Leftist party and unless he pulls another Rezko ‘I made a bonehead mistake’ then this requires comment by the Right and its’ link to redistributionist thought.  

“…..the New Party was far to the left of the American mainstream. Whether formally socialist or not, the New Party and its ACORN backers favored policies of economic redistribution. As Obama would say, they wanted to spread the wealth around. Bracketing the socialism question and simply taking the New Party on its own terms is sufficient to raise serious questions about Obama’s political commitments — questions that cry out for attention from a responsible press.”

“….in Chicago, the New Party functioned as the electoral arm of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). So despite repeated attempts to distance himself from ACORN, Obama’s New Party ties raise disturbing questions about his links to those proudly militant leftists. The media’s near-total silence on this critical element of Obama’s past is deeply irresponsible”

“…..the New Party was clearly far to the left of mainstream Democrats, and according to Sifry, the party explicitly thought of itself as made up of committed “progressives,” rather than conventional “liberals.” That is entirely consistent with a famous 1995 profile of Obama by Hank De Zutter, which portrays him as closely tied to ACORN, and holding a world-view well “beyond” his mother’s conventional liberalism.”
