So, will Obama put Wright behind him by debating Hillary after all?

I'm guessing no. Readers?

Here's Clinton at the Indianapolis Star today talking issues for an hour, she'd clean his clock in an issues-only debate. Hell, she almost has me believing a gas tax holiday is a good idea. If you want to see her talk about debates it's at 35:20, she talks about the African American vote at 45:10. (h/t Talk Left)

Startling is observing Hillary after watching Michelle for an hour on C-Span. It was like Pokemon the movie as a prelude to My Dinner with Andre`.

Now I'm signing off, night all.

Goodwin sums it up nicely: Obama fucked himself over--and with gusto. No level of CDS or misogyny will save his ass if he's the nominee.

Obama provided books, speeches, and video clips that completely show him to be a bald-faced liar* with an absurd lack of judgment and, now, character as he's exposed for the political appeaser he is.

*Obama: "I never heard a word," back when the story broke, which was just bullshit, and hilariously so considering the Times and RollingStone did articles on Wright and his inflammatory rhetoric, Farrakhan love in early 2007; to "I did hear some offensive sermons" but "Clips taken out of context" and "I cannot disown Wright any more than I can disown the black community or my white grandmother" during The Speech; to "I had no idea Wright was this way" yesterday after a 20 year-long close friendship and Wright simply repeating the same sermons


"Dreams From My Father," 2004 edition: "It was this capacious talent of his — this ability to hold together, if not reconcile, the conflicting strains of black experience — upon which Trinity [United Church of Christ's] success had ultimately been built."

Chicago Tribune, Jan. 21, 2007: "What I value most about Pastor Wright is not his day-to-day political advice. He's much more of a sounding board for me to make sure that I am speaking as truthfully about what I believe as possible and that I'm not losing myself in some of the hype and hoopla and stress that's involved in national politics."

Speech on race, March 18, 2008: "As imperfect as he may be, he has been like family to me. He strengthened my faith, officiated my wedding, and baptized my children. ... He contains within him the contradictions — the good and the bad — of the community that he has served diligently for so many years."

News conference yesterday: "The person I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago. His comments were not only divisive and destructive, but I believe that they end up giving comfort to those who prey on hate."

And the money -- Didn't he give more than $20,000 to Wright's church? You don't do that unless you're in total agreement with the Pastor.

Don't you realize that the money Obama sent to Wright's church was probably printed during the Clinton years, thus, implicating Hillary?

Wake up, everyone! Hillary will do anything to win! Anything!!!!!

Hillary's so rich, she probably has that money now. I mean, her campaign's so broke, she probably doesn't have any money now. I mean...

"But some longtime Wright supporters said Wright's in-your-face appearance at the National Press Club was no different from what parishioners regularly experienced in church.

"What you saw is what we saw every single week," said Brenda McGadney-Douglass, an associate professor at the University of Toledo who attended Wright's Monday appearance and was baptized by him. "This is exactly the way things go in our church."

I believe it. Rev. Wright obviously has been preaching the same things for years. Those clips weren't taken out of context.

Obama has been bearing false witness.

She's rich, but she's white trash. She's constantly showing off as a know-it-all, but only dipshits vote for her. She's The Evil Overlord who'll stop at nothing to win, but Obama's the inevitable nominee so it won't matter but it will (Hence the need for bloody revolution if she steals the nomination!), which makes him far more electable against the GOP.

We all know the right is nowhere near as eeevil as Hitlery, which is why she failed to pass health care reform as First Lady, because she's weak. Besides, she was just a glorified hostess...when she wasn't running the show.

Honestly, the only way I can explain such cognitive dissonance is bigotry. Who knew misogyny was so pervasive?

She's at the helm of an all-powerful machine... and she has a pathetic, incompetent organization and has totally lost the race.

Also she presides over an ominous cabal of party elders... and her opponent has won the endorsement of virtually every significant person in the party leadership.

Obama will keep moving forward denouncing and ignoring his campaign crumbling around him. But he will not debate Hillary because that would be giving in to her and that would make him appear weak.

I love this job!
