Re: Kristol Fails To Check His Sources, And So Bungles Key Fact In Anti-Obama Column
Who cars Obama spend 20+ years in the Pews listening to Wright's bigoted venom, and even doanted 22K+ in 2006. Then there is the NYT article from 4/2007, where Wright say he and Obama discussed Obama having to distance himself from Wright due to his bigoted (my word not his) sermons. So Obama was very aware of the possible consequences of his Pastors radical views.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
Clarification: The Obama campaign has told members of the press that Senator Obama was not in church on the day cited, July 22, because he had a speech he gave in Miami at 1:30 PM. Our writer, Jim Davis, says he attended several services at Senator Obama's church during the month of July, including July 22. The church holds services three times every Sunday at 7:30 and 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Central time. While both the early morning and evening service allowed Sen. Obama to attend the service and still give a speech in Miami, Mr. Davis stands by his story that during one of the services he attended during the month of July, Senator Obama was present and sat through the sermon given by Rev. Wright as described in the story. Mr. Davis said Secret Service were also present in the church during Senator Obama's attendance. Mr. Davis' story was first published on Newsmax on August 9, 2007.
I am sure the secret service have records on which service Obama attended... unless Obama wants to keep the records a secret !

Summary: On Fox News' Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade baselessly asserted that Newsmax "freelance reporter" Jim Davis "sat next to Barack Obama" when Obama heard controversial statements made by Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., then-pastor of Obama's church, during a July 22, 2007, service. In fact, Davis did not claim in his article that he "sat next to" Obama during the service, and Obama's campaign called the Newsmax report "inaccurate." Also, New York Times columnist Bill Kristol reported that Newsmax had claimed that Obama was at church on the relevant day. Kristol subsequently issued a correction, writing: "The Obama campaign has provided information showing that Sen. Obama did not attend Trinity that day. I regret the error."
