Campaign of “Change” Tells Muslim Women to “Change” Seats
The gang that can’t shoot straight strikes again… Politco reports that Camp Obama banned a couple of Burqa-wearing Muslim women from appearing behind the PR-rich podium area at the recent “Boo Hillary” Michigan rally.
Politco notes the hypocrisy:
But for Obama, the old-fashioned image-making contrasts with his promise to transcend identity politics and to embrace all elements of America. The incidents in Michigan, which has one of the largest Arab and Muslim populations in the country, also highlight an aspect of his campaign that sometimes rubs Muslims the wrong way: The candidate has vigorously denied a false, viral rumor that he himself is Muslim. But the denials at times seem to imply to some that there is something wrong with the faith, though Obama occasionally adds that he means no disrespect to Islam.
This of course outraged the gaffe-prone Obama campaign.
“This is of course not the policy of the campaign. It is offensive and counter to Obama’s commitment to bring Americans together and simply not the kind of campaign we run,” said Obama spokesman Bill Burton.
How long before we hear the old Obama fallback excuse: “This is not my campaign that I’ve known.”
