Steve Schmidt schools Sarah Palin on the stupidity of bringing Reverend Wright into the political arena.
Schmidt: "Well she did Martin, she did all the time, and I think something that is important to understand here, is that this was John McCain's decision. John McCain ran for President of the United States. John McCain won his party's nomination. It was his call. John McCain said absolutely not, under no circumstances, do I want to light this fuse, do I want to inject the poison of race into this campaign. It was the right thing for John McCain to do. It was the right thing POLITICALLY for John McCain to do. And most everybody who disagreed with that decision understood that it was John McCain's right to make the decision and got in line with it."
With ONE notable exception of course. Clearly Palin NEVER got in line with McCain's decision, and continues to THIS DAY to try and resurrect the Reverend Wright issue in order to discredit Barack Obama, who now has over three years as President under his belt, making the Reverend Wright issue even less relevant as a determination of his character today than it was back in 2008.
An opinion by the way that Steve Schmidt confirms with no equivocation.
Maritin Bahir: "And yet Steve, many on the Right say that he might not have lost that election if he'd used Jeremiah Wright."
Schmidt: "Yeah, well that's dumb!"
Do you hear that Sarah? That's dumb!
Tomorrow I have a rather interesting tidbit to share about John McCain's campaign manager that might make many of you see him in an entirely different light. Stay tuned.
