Let’s all remember from the last presidential campaign that, as an individual that belongs to a church, you are completely responsible for, and agree with, everything your pastor says, does, has said, has done, will say and will do. Absolutely no exceptions to that rule, correct?
I think you’ve set up a no win situation for her here. Little though I like Michelle Bachman, I really don’t know what she could do that would satisfy you here. She has, like the Catholic League spokesman said, condemned anti-Catholicism.
Did she actually try and pin Wright’s rhetoric on Obama or did just “her fellow Republicans” do that? You might have a point if she came out swinging against Obama’s attempts to disassociate himself with his former pastor, but its kinda silly to try and hang hypocracy on her for not acting in concert with what other people in her large and diverse political part said.
There are, after all, many tens of millions of Republicans, its kinda silly to demand they all be 100% consistent with everything the rest of them have said.
And they were wrong to do so, right? If it was wrong for them to do it to Obama, it’s wrong for people to do it to Bachman. Besides, she did leave the church…she actively disassociated herself with the guy.
I don’t know offhand whether she joined in the condemnation herself, but membership in a political party does mean something. When you’re running for President under a party’s banner, it’s perfectly fair and proper for folks to attack you for that party’s positions.
Most of y’all apparently are strong believers in coincidence. The states that have been strong liberal for decades are in worse financial condition than those states that have been more conservative. Eg. California; liberal and bankrupt. Texas; conservative and solvent.
Personally, I don’t do coincidence. I believe in cause and effect.
Whoa, whoa, whoa there cowboys! This is politics. Every weakness is exploited. Logic and rationality are not welcome. This is business, not personal. OK, it’s personal, but this is the fate of the entire nation we are talking about. I didn’t make the rules, I just push them to the edge and over. How many other lame excuses do I need to come up with? [End Satire Alert]
