Ruth Gledhill recently had an interesting interview with Gene Robinson. In it, Robinson claims he and Obama met privately three times during the campaign, and at Obama’s initiative.
Now Robinson is *understatement alert* a bit of a self-promoter. So I wouldn’t take his claim completely at face value. But nevertheless, this doesn’t bode well as to the sort of input to which Obama will listen most closely.
Oh, and by the way, if you dared to question Obama’s background during the campaign, you’re a racist. Bishop Gene:
But because some of the claims have been so outrageous - that he's a Muslim, that he wasn't born in the United States, his associations with various incendiary people - I have to wonder if because people couldn't outright say they weren't going to vote for a black man that this became a way of objecting to his presidency, that that was more defensible than racist attacks.
Again, if this is the sort of moonbattery Obama is listening to . . .
