Note that post is not a reflection on Dan. Indeed, I agree with his point that Obama’s problems in this regard are largely Obama’s own fault: the man continues to be more concerned with denying rumors about his religion than he is with explaining why those rumors shouldn’t matter in the first place. Nonetheless, this is almost certainly just Obama not being able to talk artfully without a Teleprompter. Nothing new, in other words.
PS: Also, not that I want to be mean about this or anything, but it’s kind of disingenuous for Obama to complain about being linked to the Palin smears when it’s his own finance people that are participating in them.
