Obama 'Outraged' at Rev. Wright's 'Ridiculous' statements

Not much here... Move along.
I guess I would be outraged to if a "friend" and "mentor" single handedly took down my presidential campaign.

Thump, Thump- Don’t worry, that’s just Obama under the bus…

It is a good day to be John McCain. That’s because the Rev. Jeremiah Wright bus/ media tour goes on- and Rev. Wright seems to be backing the bus over Barack Obama every chance he gets. Yesterday, I thought that this might be in co-operation with the Obama camp, but I think I am changing my mind on that. A representative from The Nation of Islam is currently escorting Rev. Wright, Jamil Muhammad. Thump, Thump. Rev. Wright announces his new book, thump, thump. Rev Wright calls Obama a (gasp) politician. Thump, Thump.

What really got me though, was this quote from Time magazine editor Amy Sullivan “As soon as the questions began, Wright transformed into a defiant, derisive figure, snapping one-liners at the unfortunate moderator tasked with reading the questions and stepping back with a grin on his face after each one, clearly enjoying himself.” It appears that Rev. Wright is not just throwing young Barry under the bus, but he is relishing each and every moment spent doing so.

Obama has finally commented on the Rev. Wright spectacle. 'Certainly what the last three days indicate is that we're not coordinating with him, right?'- Maybe, I am still not completely convinced.

This is not the only bad news for Obama. North Carolina is supposed to be an easy win for Obama- and a state he needs to win to get back on track. North Carolina Governor Mike Easley will endorse Hillary Clinton today. It is looking more and more as if she will close the gap in the Tar Heel state. This would leave the Obama campaign reeling on its way into Indiana, where Clinton is expected to win. Indiana is the last big prize. Obama losses in North Carolina and Indiana would practically ensure a brokered convention- allowing Hillary the time she needs to start picking off the superdelegates that pave her only path to the nomination.

I’m sure you are thinking that was a pretty bad day for Barry- but wait, there’s more. To be specific, there’s more from the Tony Rezko scandal. Seems Obama’s campaign is returning campaign contributions from Aiham Alsammarae. Alsammarae, the former Iraqi electricity minister donated six times to Obama in January, February and March. Why is this a problem? Alsammarae put up 2.7 million dollars in property to help bail Tony Rezko out of jail. With friends like these…

It’s moving day

No, I’m not going anywhere, and neither are most of you. I’m talking about the Marines moving into Garmser Afghanistan, and the Taliban moving out.

Garmser is a rough area- the Brits and Canadians have been unable to remove the Taliban from the Northerly region of the Country. Most American troops have been operating (successfully, I may add) along the Pakistani border, in the eastern part of the country. Violence has been bad enough in Garmser to close the town market. The Taliban pretty much own the area, and have a munitions factory there.

With, the Brits and Canadians stretched thin, the DoD has deployed the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU- pronounced “mew” )to the area. A MEW consists of Infantry, Air and support elements. Currently the following units are attached to the 24th MEU

This is bad news for the bad guys. This is the same crew that cleared out Ramadi. That operation is regarded as one of the biggest successes of the Iraq campaign.
Go get ‘em Marines!
