    Because some people tend to think only barak obama is linked to racist pastors. Every single republican has tried to get an endorsment from falwell. Barak obama's "connections" aren't an issue.

    I have no doubt it won't take long for the media to make him their favorite taget... I would say they start targeting him sometime this week and by next Monday, after the Sunday morning political show, he will be at the top of their list of republicans to trash.
    he's already got one out there........hanging clinton while he himself was having an affair with his third wife.

    Really! Newt Gingrich matters again? I don't think we need any scandals for Gingrich. He is not going to gain any lasting traction.

    Every single Republican? You sure?

    Some people still think we are geocentric, what's your point?

    That's another thing. The people criticizing obama for being a member of wright's church are the same ones calling him muslim. Which is it?

    That was a bit of an exaggeration on my part but yes in modern times that has been the case.

    And I'm not sure why you are bringing up the geocentric crap. I was just trying to point out the hypocrisy in criticizing obama's supposed "connections" and i get criticized by liberals and conservatives.

    Nah, that doesn't work. Without a note of the macabre an affair is pretty ho-hum stuff.

    Yeah, It was all over the news. As far as his loose connection with the likes of William Ayers, a man that has neither the modesty towards his past, nor the insights of a post-radical elementary school teacher, the connection was too small to merit discussion.
