Tape Discovered of Obama Listening to Rev. Wright Sermon
Okay...I use the word "discovered" a bit loosely--the way one might "discover" a Big Mac at McDonald's. But now that I have your attention, the point is that most voters don't have a clue that Obama writes in his memoir that the very first time he attended Trinity United Church, he heard Rev. Wright rant that "white folks' greed runs a world in need."
As you may recall, Obama said, following Rev. Wright's infamous press club appearance in April, that "The person I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago." The racist Rev. Wright quote included in Dreams from My Father contradicts this statement. While some bloggers and opinion journalists were quick to draw attention to this passage in Dreams from My Father shortly after the Wright story broke in March, this quote was never reported on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, or PBS, according to Nexis.
I bring attention to this fact because McCain and Palin are saying that Obama's statements about his relationship with Bill Ayers call into question Obama's judgment and truthfulness. While Obama has misrepresented his relationship with Ayers and never told the whole truth about that relationship (when did Obama learn that Ayers was an unrepentant domestic terrorist, and what did he say to Ayers about it?), I don't expect a smoking gun to emerge proving that Obama is lying about Ayers. We're never going to find a picture of Obama reading a newspaper story about Ayers's terrorism.

This is the big news, perhaps?
I would ask Obama and all of his supporters: if Obama must lie about himselfto such an extent that he is presented as opposite his real selfin order to win, doesnt it mean the real Obama is vastly inferior?
A big gift from Bill and Hillary
I don’t think this is the big news. The word “here” is actually linked at the Weekly Standard to the audio edition of Obama’s/Ayers’ “Dreams From My Father.” This is a bit misleading on the part of the author, John McCormack, if you ask me.
...nor mentioned by Sen. McCain when he had the opportunity to speak directly to the American people without the media filter.
Billy Bob and Hilda have been eerily quiet lately. Didn’t Bill say he was going to start campaigning for Zero and Plugs after the Jewish holidays?
It won’t have an impact IMO. Everyone on both sides knows obama is lying. It’s like telling the original oj jury you have bruno magli shoes that prove the crime. They got another one by and they will go about their bidness.
ironically, Hannity uses this quote all the time. But many people have never heard it in mainstream
let it rip!!!
I am convinced it will not matter....people where I work like Obama and are going to vote for him regardless. As long as the economy keeps tanking....Obama will remain ahead.
