SocraticGadfly: Hypocrisy alert – Obama, New Yorker,

Hypocrisy alert – Obama, New Yorker,

Barack Obama now says the “infamous” New Yorker cover is “n insult against Muslim Americans.”

That’s after being too afraid, until now, to call out the right-wing smearers who allege he’s a Muslim for being bigots. He has gotten so far as to admit that’s been a mistake, saying he’s been “derelict” in pointing out how hurtful those attacks are to Muslims.

As I blogged a week ago, though, he can do better. Accuse the right-wing smear machine of bigotry just as bad as racial bigotry.

Instead, we have B.O. repeating the mistakes of John Kerry and other Democratic presidential candidates of the recent past.

Hey, B.O., this is a presidential election, not a tea party. Kumbaya doesn’t cut it.
