J.H.: So, here is the question: how is it that Obama has ended up associated with so many shady characters? Typically politicians tend to stay away from people like that, don't they?
Freddoso: ...The most charitable interpretation of this situation is to say that Senator Obama's judgment is very bad. We criticize President Bush now, and rightly so, for saying he looked into Vladimir Putin's eyes and saw his soul, and saw a friend, when in fact, Putin wasn't the sort of man who could be trusted.
If you look at his political history, Barack Obama looks in every shady character's eyes and basically says, "I can trust this guy or there's nothing wrong here." There's nothing wrong with attending a church for the better part of 20 years that subscribes to this garbage theology of James Cone with a pastor who's constantly throwing bombs. Don't tell me Barack Obama didn't know about Jeremiah Wright. The very first sermon he heard him give, Wright blamed white people for world starvation.
