A little late, isn’t it? When do Barack Obama’s supporters on the Left realize there is no bottom line. They defend him at their own risk.
Abe Foxman is right: if Jimmy Carter is going to speak at the convention then Obama should at least denounce his anti-Israel tripe, right? Will he? Hmmm.
The Bill Ayers connection and the Annenberg papers seep through to more mainstream media outlets. Complaints about “hypocrisy” and “transparency”? The Obama team seems to have adopted the worst aspects of the Clinton team.
The Obamaphiles can only scream foul about the independent ad about Bill Ayers. But they have no real answer to the underlying question: why is Obama friends with a former terrorist? The Obama cheerleaders expect voters to shrug, but average people might think that it is bizarre to have a close relationship with a person like Ayers.
Maybe all that money is being wasted by Obama (h/t Ben Smith). He wildly outspent McCain and lost his lead.
Kathleen Parker hits the nail on the head: the problem with the Infant Born Alive Act issue for Obama is that it leaves almost everyone wondering “What did Obama mean and when did he mean it?” Like the “above my pay grade” remark, his “exquisite amblivalence” has many suspecting that he is a “man who thought too hard and lost his sense.”
Remember all those blind-quoted Republicans grousing about Steve Schmidt? You don’t hear from them anymore. Nothing succeeds like success, as Peter points out.
I can agree with even Gail Collins on on this: “Who will Barack pick? I don’t care.” Let’s face it–unless it is Hillary Clinton, no one else will either.
