The Women In His Life

Spengler says that Obama hates America.

I don't know whether he does or not, but his wife's attitude is very troubling, and I don't think that he's going to be the next president. I think that the first (true) black (and woman) president is much more likely to be a Republican.

[Update a few minutes later]

Isn't it interesting that the American press doesn't seem interested in stories like this one? I guess that it's just another example of foreigners doing the jobs that Americans won't do.

This would be a gift to the Clinton campaign, if they were in a position to criticize people over land deals. You can bet that the McCain campaign will use it in the general, if Obama gets the nod.

In defense of the US press: The Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times are usually ahead of everyone else on this kind of stuff. I confess my eyes glaze over when I try to contemplate the details of the deal, but doesn't the following link - from January, cover the same basic facts regarding the loan, etc?,CST-NWS-rezko29.article

Given that a church group was involved the one time Obama did anything to help Rezko, I don't understand why this would be a major scandal -- I don't think Obama looks corrupt here. Again, I admit the facts of the case bore me, but that will probably be true of most Americans -- for this to be a scandal, there needs to be more of a narrative where Obama is the clear-cut villain.

That's just because it's a Chicago (local) story. The New York Times doesn't seem to be very interested.

Yesterday, on MSNBC's Hardball, Chris Matthews said to Lynn Sweet (the Chicago Sun-Times Washington Bureau Chief who writes frequently about Obama) "You're the one to go to for Obama stories", or something to that effect. My point is that the national press is (or will soon become) aware of the Chicago papers current advantage in reporting on Obama -- the Chicago journalists (currently) are the ones who have local contacts and know who to call, etc.

There might just not be much there to report. The Chicago papers have happily ripped into the corruption surrounding Mayor Daley, Gov. Blagojevich, jailed Gov. Ryan, and countless other local officials ( corruption usually being the raison d'etre for an Illinios politician, and finding it being the raison d'etre for a Chicago newspaper), but the local papers just haven't found much on Obama. You can bet they looked during Obama's wild ride to become a Senator. Obama comes from the squeaky clean Paul Simon wing of Illinois politics.

What an incredibly stupid article by Spengler. And how fitting that it is linked to here by the military genius, with nary a disclaimer.

Obama has said time and time again how he owes everything to America. His speeches are all about uniting the American people.

I think the real problem is that some people hate Obama and more importantly hate his message of unity which will ruin their deep roots in divisiveness.

What an incredibly stupid comment by Gerson. Well, actually, not so incredibly...
