A new book which is scheduled for release on July 17 traces Barack Obama's views on government controlled healthcare to a Communist mentor that had significant influence on the president when he was growing up in Hawaii, according to a new article today at American Thinker.
Paul Kengor, a professor of political science at Grove City College in Grove City, Pa., has written a book titled, "The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor." The book focuses on Obama's formative years in Hawaii during the 1970s and identifies Davis as one who had significant influence on Obama at a time when his political views were being developed.
Kengor states that he has evidence proving that Obama was mentored by Davis from the time Obama was eight years old until he was 18.
Davis was a card carrying member of the Communist Party, a pro-Stalin, pro-Soviet, and pro-Mao "statist" who described himself as a "progressive."
