Manager claims ignorance of his own candidate's past, including Rev. Wright
Obama campaign manager David Plouffe claims President Obama's campaign staff had done "zero research" on its candidate and was not aware of the inflammatory statements and views of Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Plouffe, whose firm was hired to run Obama's presidential campaign, made the statement in a forthcoming book. While Plouffe and his staff may not have done their homework on Obama's radical associates, it may be hard for political insiders to believe some of Obama's other key advisers during the campaign were not aware of Wright's controversial views. One of Obama's most senior advisers was closely associated with Wright while others traveled in the same Chicago circles as Obama. Also, a review of Wright's church literature and the vast amount of church material available to the public makes the possibility of Obama himself not knowing about Wright's controversial views seem implausible. Plouffe recalled a Rolling Stone magazine item from February 2007 first disclosing some inflammatory quotes from Wright. Plouffe wrote, "The incident should have prompted an immediate scouring of the Reverend Wright and all he has said over the years. It's worth noting that our systemic failure to deal with this issue properly started the day before Obama's announcement. I still kick myself for how terribly we mishandled our internal Wright work."

I remember Bob Beckel lamenting on FOX during the primary campaign that Barry-O had not been vetted by the party.
Yes, more concerned about the ‘color of his skin’ rather than the ‘content of his character’......Ironic.
America is gone - whoops, our bad .....
“Campaign chief: We did ‘zero research’ on ‘the One’”
About as much research John Boehner did prior to sending the GOP candidate in NY-23 a check for $5,000, or as much as the RNC after spending many tens of thousands to diss Hoffman there and prop up a loser in Dede.
In this snippet he just talks about Wright, but obviously all the other radicals in Obama’s life (both past and present) never got vetted either. If it was just Wright - that is old news.
THEY LIE! They knew exactly who the zero was and they sold the people a pig in a poke.
Cue Team America World police:
We had bad intelligence. Bad Intelligence
as much research as Pelosi did determining if zero was eligible.
Scouring? What do you mean by that, Mr. Goebbels?
