There is so much bullshit and apologia going around about Obama’s spectacularly poor judgment in choosing this church that it absolutely astonishes me. My favorite one is this:
“You can’t pigeonhole the message of this church with a few soundbites!”
Oh, really? Then why did the church create that video and put it on the TUCC website for sale? Weren’t TUCC and Wright the ones creating the soundbites and promoting them as representative of the church’s message?
Look. If Hillary really were the caricature the haters make her out to be, then she would certainly have been hammering away at Obama over this the second it came out. Obama would be done for in about five milliseconds. Instead, it was Obama who took the low road (as usual), by putting out a photo of Bill Clinton shaking Wright’s hand ten years ago. How pathetic. Obama did the same thing with a photo of Hillary, as First Lady, shaking Reszko’s hand. Yes, public pictures are the exact same thing as close 17-year and 20-year relationships!
Who is Obama trying to “bamboozle” with this ridiculous false-equivalency crap? Why, his own followers, many of whom are already going from the assumption that Hillary and Bill are genuinely horrible people. (Never mind why they think this, they JUST KNOW IT!!!11J!!!!) Don’t you love a “unity” candidate who repeatedly and constantly smears his opponent while pretending to be a pure and holy person? Remind you of anyone else who said he was a “uniter, not a divider?”
As I’ve said before, Senator Obama’s Hatin’ Hillary supporters don’t seem to understand who the enemy really is. But true-blue Democrats know: it’s Senator John “More Wars, My Friends” McCain.
The sad thing is, they won’t even get it once Obama is being pummeled by McCaca and the right-wing scream machine after his nomination. They’ll cling to their delusions of Obama’s electability even then.
And then, when we inaugurate President McCaca in 2009, whose fault will it be?
Why, Hillary Clinton’s, of course.
