Look who's endorsing Obama

You knew this was coming, did you?


Ed Morrisey transcribed it for your reading pleasure:
"We're going to need to see who is going to be the strongest candidate against Senator McCain. And I believe that is Senator Obama with his emphasis on change and bringing people together, a fresh voice internationally, somebody that is able, in my judgment..to bring... at least I just got back from Latin America, from Venezuela, where he has enormous support, where people really want to see a change in American foreign policy and they see Obama as that agent of change."
As Ed points out, the only Venezuelans Richardson met were Chavez and his cohorts:
In other words, Richardson just delivered the Hugo Chavez endorsement.
In other Obama news, here are the six YouTube videos of Wright's toxic statements at the National Press Club. Glenn Reynolds has a word of advice and a photo for Rev. Wright.

As for the Rev. Wright, Richardson and Andrew Sullivan are on the same page (maybe they were reading from the same page?) when they say that Wright isn't running for office. Sullivan:
Obama needs not just to distance himself from Wright's views; he needs to disown him at this point. Wright himself, it seems to me, has become part of what Obama is fighting against: the boomer, Vietnam era's obsession with its red-blue, white-black, pro and anti-America fixations. That is not what this election needs to be about; and Wright's massive, racially divisive and, yes, bitter provocation requires a proportionate response.
Obama's not about to do that.

Sullivan doesn't believe that Obama shares in Wright's beliefs.

I have to disagree. Obama's been hearing Wright preach this for decades, and he has a long list of hateful friends.

Of course, one can't also discount this possibility: Is the Stage Being Set For the All-Time Sister Souljah Moment?

After all, Obama already threw grandma under the bus.

UPDATE
Robert Stacy McCain compares Obama's Wright problem to George McGovern's Eagleton dilemma.

One of the things that Rev. Wright's interview revealed that was so dismaying was the strongly made suggestion that there are two truths. The real one or rather the secret one that is only available to the true believers and the public or political one that is used in furtherance of the good cause. I'm still searching through the Bible, Proverbs mainly, for the justification that lying or hiding the truth is acceptable.

Of a minor note is the shift in the description of Trinity UCC from being a multiracial church to now being identified, by Wright and his defenders, as a "...black church."

Pat, it's not in the Bible. You'll find it in that other book that starts with a 'K.' Search on 'kitman' or 'taquiyya' - here's two brief definitions. JihadWatch has more.

Very muddy, I agree. But if Louis Farrakan is his hero, it all begins to make sense.

Or perhaps The Prince?
