I’m not making this up.
Check it out. On Friday of last week he made his now infamous speech that included these lines concerning Republicans:
They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”
Yesterday news hits the stands about a Mr. Black in McCain’s campaign suggesting that a terrorist attack would help McCain. “Did I mention he’s Black?”
Who isn’t just a little afraid of a Mr. Black who works for the campaign who thinks another terrorist attack would help his job? LOL
Good for John McCain to reject and denounce Mr. Black’s words.
NRO gives you good reasons to not vote for Obama.
Richard Cohen notes that we know that McCain has a line. We’re not so sure of Obama.
Obama might have a similar bottom line, core principles for which, in some sense, he is willing to die. If so, we don’t know what they are. Nothing so far in his life approaches McCain’s decision to refuse repatriation as a POW so as to deny his jailors a propaganda coup. In fact, there is scant evidence the Illinois senator takes positions that challenge his base or otherwise threaten him politically. That’s why his reversal on campaign financing and his transparently false justification of it matter more than similar acts by McCain.
