“The move completes Obama’s slow walk away from a church that began receiving huge scrutiny late in the campaign’s primary season.”
The MSM will pretend it has worked. But it hasn’t and it won’t.
Ayers. Dohrn. Pfleger. Rezko. Wright.
These are the friends, sponsors, and mentors of Obama. They define him far more than his words of the past 18 months.
It doesn’t matter what I think of Obama’s radical friends and their radical politics.
It doesn’t matter what hard-core Obama supporters think of Obama’s radical friends and radical politics.
What matters it the impact of Obama’s radical friends and their radical politics on independents and moderate Democrats and the increasingly small number of Obamacans.
Some Obama supporters will assert that this too will pass and will not matter come November.
But I am willing to guarantee that the rants of Phleger, Ayers, Dohrn and Wright will be played throughout September, October and the first two days of November –over and over again, just as John Kerry’s “I was for the 87 million before I was against it” was played in the stretch run of 2004 and Al Gore’s long list of fairy tales played again and again in 2000.
And every time they are played, people will think “Obama was very, very close to these people. Does he have the judgment to be the Commander-in-Chief?”
