CBS News From The Road Blog by Dean Reynold, still carrying water for the Obama Campaign, writes:
"It had to have been a painful decision, as Obama just cut the line to his religious anchor, but the church had become a weapon for his political enemies. The Trinity Church was the place Obama called his religious home. A place where he was married. Where his children were baptized. Where he was friends with the congregation and its minister, Jeremiah Wright."
The only pain will be if the black community feels betrayed turns against. Everyone at Trinity loved Obama and thought he was one of their own. They never expected him to be just another politician that would say or do whatever it takes to win. They forgot he learned how to be a politician in the Chicago School of Politics Class of 1996. He tried to make it sound like it was the best thing he could do for the church, with all of the media constantly covering the Sunday meetings and bothering congregation, trying to dig up a story. Sounds very noble but it would have made more sense if he had done this before he started to lose in the primaries.
The longer the election carries on the more we learn about Sen Obama. Today he is looking more and more like just another elitist politician that will do or say anything to win the election. With the Democratic Party so splintered to have Sen Obama carry their banner in the fall election will be political suicide. The best thing Sen McCain and the Republicans can do is sit back and watch as the carnage continues.
