I would also observe that this is part of a pattern. Obama is failing to understand a lot of things that should be quite easy for a man of his intelligence to understand. After decades in the reverend Wright's church, he didn't understand that the man was a fruitcake. After eight years of Bush and eight years of Clinton, he didn't understand that the climate between the parties was going to be far from genteel. After the financial crisis, he failed to understand that standard macroeconomics 101 points to an economic policy that's robustly left-wing rather than centrist. Summing up, Obama is continuing a pattern of repressing reality so he can feel good about the people he wants to hang out with.
Rather you have chosen to impose a pattern that is more to your liking on the actions of a man with whom you are enamoured, even if he has disappointed you.
At least you don't seem to have bought the baloney that Obama, in attending Wright's church for twenty years, never happened to be there when he gave one of his racist and inflammatory sermons...not once. Instead you chalk it up to...what?
A remarkable ability to see what is not there or remain blind to what is, because of a pathological desire to like people?
It couldn't possibly be that Obama attended Wright's church because Wright's sermons resonated with him.
It couldn't possibly be that he attended Wright's church so that he could establish some measure of political credibility within the community he sought to organize.
You did, apparently, buy his baloney that he was seeking to bring a new form of governing to Washington, one that eschewed partisanship, demagoguery, and just plain nastiness.
There are numerous examples of partisan, demagogic and just plain nasty Obama, but where are the examples of an initial good faith effort that had to be abandoned because the Republican Ogres just wouldn't let him be a nice guy?
