Feinstein's Sneak

Plus--Today's Obama Gaffe-to-Ignore

(Continued from Page 50)

Paging Rush ... : McCain seems to say Republicans lost Hastert's House seat because of the "very strong anti-iimmigrant rhetoric"  of GOP candidate Jim Oberweis. ... P.S.: On Hannity, McCain says:

I would have the border state governors certify that their borders are secure. Americans will trust the border state governors. They won't trust us in Washington. That's the message. [E.A.]

Do you trust the border state governors? I don't trust the border state governors. Does McCain really think "Americans" will? He must. Remember, this isn't a gimmick designed to get him through the election--to accomplish that, he only has to say he'll secure the borders first, period. This is a gimmick designed to let him shift to pushing for an illegal immigrant legalization bill shortly after he's actually elected. He wouldn't bring it up at all unless that's what he planned to do. ... P.S.: Note that McCain again ducks Hannity's question on whether he'd "sign McCain-Kennedy today," lending credence to those  who thought his apparent concession on the subject in the January Reagan library debate was a misstatement. ... 4:03 P.M. link

"Obama Attended Hate America Sermon"-- Newsmax's Kessler:  But not a sermon from the Greatest Hits collection. "[W]hite arrogance ... United States of White America"--sounds like one of Rev. Wright's more anodyne efforts. ... P.S.: The night is young. Obama is now at the mercy of any fellow congregant with a cell phone camera who can place Obama in the pews for, say, "God Damn America." ...

Update: Obama's campaign  says he didn't attend Wright's church on the day  (July 22, 2007) Kessler says he did.  Commenters on Andrew Malcolm's blog  claim Obama was at the La Raza event in Miami. Here's the speaking schedule. There's also video. Ball in Kessler's court! ...

More: Newsmax goes squishy on the date, saying

Our writer, Jim Davis ... stands by his story that during one of the services he attended during the month of July, Senator Obama was present and sat through the sermon given by Rev. Wright as described in the story. [E.A.]
