Well, good for him - now that PAC needs to double down & start running the ad!
But I’m quite sure the fix is in & nothing of the sort will happen...
I actually think it might be smart strategy to not get into this again. The election is on the economy. Carville’s 1992 line.
The media and public will actually use this to get OFF the economy if it becomes a “thing” again.
The right or wrong of the matter is beside the point.
The wishy washy middle aren’t looking at this stuff, no matter how much they should.
After watching THe Five and listening to some of what Hannity said, seems like our side is once again twisting themselves into pretzels to give BO and the dems the benefit of the doubt. The Five saying Rev Wright and Bill Ayers should not be talked about. It’s like it’s 2008 all over again. BO and Axelrod must be laughing their asses off and high 5ing at our side’s niceness. If BO had something of this magnitude on Romney, it would be run without hesitation.
It appears that the PAC is worried that Mayor Rham will pull their funding for the upcoming work at Chicago Wrigley Field and are now backing away from the proposal.

Cubs’ Ricketts decries proposal
By Jon Greenberg
CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts issued a statement Thursday condemned “racially divisive issues” following an article in The New York Times, which detailed a proposal by his father’s “super PAC” to challenge President Obama’s re-election campaign because of his relationship with controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright, among other things.
“As chairman of the Chicago Cubs, I repudiate any return to racially divisive issues in this year’s presidential campaign or in any setting — like my father has,” Tom Ricketts said in a statement released by his spokesman Dennis Culloton.
“My focus is on one of the great American pastimes, baseball. And our team and every other Major League Baseball team are great examples of people of diverse backgrounds working together towards a common goal. I shall have no further comment on this or any other election year political issue. My full-time focus is on making the Chicago Cubs a World Series champion, preserving Wrigley Field and making the Chicago Cubs a great corporate citizen.”
The Cubs are currently working with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Pres. Obama’s former chief of staff, and the state of Illinois to craft a public/private financing plan to renovate Wrigley Field.
