The North Carolina Republican Party debuted a new ad today. It’s called “Extreme” and it’s designed to upset Barack Obama’s mojo in the May 6 primary. It’s powerful. And it begs the question about sitting in the pews of Pastor Jeremiah Wright’s church. The contrast between Wright’s “God Damn America” line – and Pope Benedict XVI’s “God Bless America” at his departure ceremony with Vice President Cheney a few days ago is breathtaking.
Barack Obama may indeed become the Democratic nominee for president but he won’t have an easy road, and he won’t have any one to blame but himself.
