Obama: Merely Changing the Subject

Investor's Business Daily understands that Obama is merely changing the subject:

But Obama's recent troubles, which this much-hyped speech was supposed to put past him, are not about race relations. They're about one churchman who happens to be black, whose views from the pulpit are repugnant and from whom Obama doesn't seem to have the guts to distance himself.


The supposed divide between black and white is not the issue here; Obama's longtime association with Jeremiah Wright is.

Obama is a cynical pragmatist

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright affair and his "oops, you got me" response speech has only confirmed the obvious. Obama is a typical cynical politician. In his case, he needed credibility in South Chicago so he partnered with the people who could buy him influence (Wright and Rezko).

Obama doesn't believe in Wright's foolishness because he doesn't believe in anything. His prime motivation is the ability to exercise power.

Obama doesn't care to sooth race relations. He seeks to exploit them, evidenced by his proposals for more socialism and more affirmative action.

Obama would happily throw Jeremiah Wright under the bus if it meant more power. His problem now is how to delicately do just that without looking like a hypocrite and damaging his credibility as a uniter. He must now attempt to present himself as a politician unique in American history, someone who doesn't just feel your pain, but feels everyone's pain.

It is Getting Worse -- Obama's Hollywood Cult has Officially Jumped the Shark

Found at Althouse.

You have to see this video to believe it -- Yes We Can by Will.I.Am was embarrassingly bad. Who knew it was possible, but this one puts it to shame. I'm smiling ear-to-ear. These fools are making it too easy. If they can top this one, I'll be shocked.

Is Will.I.Am working for Karl Rove or something? Wow...

The more I know, the more I doubt

Oops - Global Warming Paradox at the NY Times Science Blog.

If only the masses could understand the science of global warming, they’d be alarmed, right? Wrong, according to the surprising results of a survey of Americans published in the journal Risk Analysis by researchers at Texas A&M University.

After asking a national sample of more than 1,000 Americans how much they knew about global warming and how they felt about it, the researchers report that respondents who are better-informed about global warming “both feel less personally responsible for global warming, and also show less concern for global warming.” Another unexpected result: “Respondents who showed a great deal of confidence that scientists understand global warming and climate change showed significantly less concern for the risks of global warming than did those who have lower trust in scientists.”
