re: #24 Obdicut

Tu quoque is not a responsible game for conservatives to be playing right now.

Obama repudiated Wright for his statements. He’s repudiated the terrorist actions of Ayers, and Ayers himself has repudiated violent terorrism.

Here, we have currently active crazies being embraced by the GOP in large numbers. Not repudiated.

If Obama was still going to Revered-Wright hosted fundraisers, your point would be valid. As it is, it is a tu quoque with a basis in the past, not the present— and even then, it’s a false comparison.

How many conferences did Obama attend during the campaign that had Revered Wright or Ayers speaking at them?

Enough until we caught onto it?
