Is Barack Obama Losing His Religion?

Senator Barack Obama has resigned his membership in Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ. Now, Obama can concentrate on his membership in the Church of Liberalism.

What About Your Friends, Obama?

There is an old saying, “Tell me who your friends are, and I’ll tell you who you are.” I think most anybody would say this is a truism, except hysterical Obama supporters.

When you look at some of the friends of Obama, there is Reverend Wright, who got quite a bit of attention for a time.

He’s an unapologetic racist and hate-monger.

And how about some of Barack Obama’s other pals, who haven’t gotten so much attention to date?

There is also Reverend James Meeks, who is a delegate pledged to Obama, and a Pastor with a penchant for racist rants.

William Ayers, 1960s-era radical and leader of the Weather Underground, is also cozy with Obama. Obama doesn’t think this should matter, because he was a wee youngster when Ayers was committing acts of domestic terrorism.

Back in January during a debate, Hillary Clinton mentioned Obama’s friend and renowned Chicago slumlord Tony Rezko.

Who else is out there?

For anybody keeping a tally, Obama’s friends include racist hate mongers, terrorists, and slumlords.

But he’s such an eloquent reader of speeches, so let’s make him President.

Obama Should Declare Pyrrhic Victory

Andrew Sullivan asks should Obama declare victory?

I think a more apt question is whether Obama should declare a Pyrrhic Victory.

After all, since the primaries have dragged on, the collective nation has gotten a more substantial look at him.

We’ve gotten to know friends like William Ayers, Tony Rezko, and Rev. Wright.

And we’ve seen him lose lots of states to Hillary as the primary has dragged along, as she positions herself for the nomination as Co-President.

The nomination this friend of Rev. Meeks inherits, what will it be worth?
