Nina Totenberg: Reverend Wright Is Irrelevant Because Obama Killed Bin Laden
The Obama-loving media had quite a hissy fit this week when the President's America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright suddenly became a campaign issue despite all their efforts.
So opposed to the mere mention of Wright's name is NPR's Nina Totenberg that on PBS's Inside Washington Friday, she said he's irrelevant because the current White House resident - wait for it! - killed Osama bin Laden (video follows with transcript and commentary):
GORDON PETERSON, HOST: Why is Wright off limits?
NINA TOTENBERG, NPR: He’s not off limits, but why is he relevant anymore?
PETERSON: Oh, well okay. That’s another question.
TOTENBERG: Reverend Wright’s biggest sin was talking about 9/11 as if somehow, you know, the United States government was involved, and it was a reprehensible speech in many ways. But, you know, Barack Obama killed, ordered the killing of Osama bin Laden. How is this relevant?
Actually, I think Totenberg has a great point.
Maybe everything - the economy, the debt, gas prices, and Obama's entire record as president - is irrelevant because bin Laden's dead.
Let's cancel the upcoming elections, give Obama another four years, and call Democrats the victors in all races across the country because bin Laden's dead.
All those opposed say nay.
The nays have it despite every media member including Totenberg voting aye.
