Obama Fist Bumps McConnell In Tribute to Jesse Helms

Senator Barack Obama gave, in effect, a "me too" to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell's tribute to the late Senator Jesse Helms. As The American Spectator reports, Obama "not only voted for a resolution commemorating Helms's achievements, but he also co-sponsored it." However, "Obama's campaign refused to make a statement about the death of Jesse Helms according to the Wall Street Journal." If and when Obama does make a statement about Helms, we will be sure to quote it -- with a few ellipses, of course.

How does Obama explain his latest "change"? Perhaps he caught a glimpse of Democratic Senator Robert Byrd, a former member of the Ku Klux Klan who sits on Obama's side of the aisle as a daily reminder that racist views can change.

Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
