Asked to comment on the last vile anti-Semitic outburst from Rev. Wright, the president’s press secretary could only muster up this: “I haven’t talked to (Obama) about these comments. I don’t have any comment about it.”
No comment, eh? Whatever happened to the president’s admonition following the Holocaust Museum shooting (“This outrageous act reminds us that we must remain vigilant against anti-Semitism and prejudice in all its forms”)? Perhaps he means we should be vigilant when it doesn’t much interfere with his own political aims and image. For twenty years Obama wasn’t vigilant in his own church, and now he simply can’t be bothered. There’s leadership for you.
