Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Ohio and Texas

The Ohio Poll claims that she has increased her lead in Ohio by nine points, to 51% (Obama gets 42%). A Texas poll claims she is ahead there (she is ahead 50-44), and has picked up a lot of Hispanic voters. Both these things sound possible because I think Obama has peaked. Judging by Tavern Talk conversations two things have happened to start deflating his bubble: 1. His (Bill Clinton-like) response to the Farrakan support question. Do you reject but not denounce? OK, if that’s what you want I both denounce him and reject him. 2. Folks were reminded that Obama comes from a very corrupt political environment (Chicago) that he has never tried to clean up. If Hillary wins at least one state she still thinks she has a chance; if she wins both large states, she really does.

I find these forced denunciations obnoxious. Obama is supposed to denounce Farrakan. McCain is supposed to denounce Hagee. Good grief. I don't have much use for either Farrakan or Hagee, but it is common sense that a candidate does not necessarily agree with everything everyone who endorses them believes. This is just another manifestation of political correctness.

To Red:
I agree with you. Yet, he could have done it (or not done it) forthrightly, instead of wiggling. Or simply say, as you do: "Look. I am not supporting him, he is supporting me. And that's all I have to say about anyone who says he supports me."
