You are a Bush supporter. You supported the biggest disaster ever to hit the American Presidency. Will you please have the decency to shoot yourself before you have any more political opinions, especially ones related to a subject like trust, where you have been nowhere but out to lunch?Originally posted by: ProfJohn
Craig... I am sure these 'bigoted' people you talk too also come across as impressive in the right context. You don't become a Hagee or a Robertson without some significant level of talent.
And let's not forget the basic fact that the left likes to take them out of context and attack them in the same way the right has been going after Wright.
At the end of the day I expect the Wright affair will be a very small moment in a larger campaign. But it could end up being similar to Kerry walking out on stage and declaring that he is 'ready for duty' and saluting the crowd. It wasn't a significant moment, but it was enough to make people go 'what is he thinking' and when his war record and actions after the war came to light people really started to question whether they wanted Kerry as their President.
In the end people will look at Wright, Ayers, his wives comments, the flag pin thing and it will make them uneasy about voting for Obama. Then they will look at a very electable John McCain and may decide that they 'trust' McCain in a way they don't trust Obama.
