You know what I’m talking about here. The lunatic pastor.
Here. Let’s listen to the Clinton people on this matter…
Wait. They’re not saying anything. Notice how very, very quiet the HRC folks have been about this pastor story? They’re going to let Obama destroy himself, they need no help.
This idiocy may well have cost Obama the general election — if he’s nominated, because it also may well cost him the primary. And in the general, McCain won’t have to touch the subject, because the independent groups will simply go after Obama and run the pastor’s speeches over and over again.
And here’s where Obama gets into real trouble.
Obama claims he’s never heard the majority of the inflammatory remarks. If someone manages to find out he was at one of the pastor’s sermons where this Farrakhan-like drivel was being spouted — in other words, if he gets caught lying about it — I think Hillary might come out with the stake and drive it through Obama’s heart.
If he’s to save himself at all, Obama needs to totally sever himself from this guy, and he ain’t doing it. I don’t know if he can do it.
And if you think this is just me hoping Obama doesn’t win the primary, think again, because I would much rather have him run in the general, for two reasons. First, I think he’s easier to beat than Hillary in the general. Second, if he beats McCain, at least I don’t have to listen to HRC drone on in pantsuits for the next 4-8 years.
So Obama better do something more solid than what he’s done so far if he hopes to save his ass. HRC can take this into the convention even with Obama leading and say, look, he’s too toxic now, nominate me if you want a shot.
Bad, bad news for Obama.
