Now, NBC News has run a special introducing Americans to Mormons. Not in 2010, when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was running for re-election, but now. Meet the Press felt compelled to get Mitt Romney to discuss it. What’s amazing to me is how the media pretends it thoroughly vetted Barack Obama’s relationship with Jeremiah Wright when, in reality, we probably know more about Sarah Palin as a Vice Presidential nominee from 2008 than we do about Barack Obama.
The media claims it vetted the Wright connection, when it reality it did not. Either Barack Obama was using Jeremiah Wright to claim some grounding in faith when he did not have what he claimed, or Barack Obama was cool with Jeremiah Wright’s theology, which as you’ll recall was important enough to Obama to use in the title of Obama’s second autobiography, published when he was gearing up for his first presidential run.
If the media wants to explore Mitt Romney’s faith, perhaps it is time we finally explore Barack Obama’s. Please feel free to point your friends toward the video Ben Howe put together on this topic.

Take a look: First, this article from the Wall Street Journal, hilariously titled ““Kasich: I’m a | Read More »
