AFTER 20 YEARS OF MEMBERSHIP, OBAMA RESIGNS FROM HIS CHURCH OF CHOICE: TRINITY UNITED--updated
Obama's church controversy just won't go away. Earlier today, Obama announced that he was resigning from Trinity United. Malkin posted the breaking news.
As bad as this story is for the Obama campaign, they are making the best of it. Timing is everything. The news was announced on Saturday and in the middle of the Florida-Michigan delegate debate, which, of course, will be the BIG story all weekend and next week. The church resignation will get second billing by the MSM, and then we can all move on to more "hope" and "change."
Yesterday, Malkin posted a few videos highlighting the "pulpiteering" (not sure if that's a word) at Trinity; videos that forced Obama to finally ditch his church of choice once and for all. Watching those videos, again, will tell you what Trinity United is all about: "Balancing" and "gettin' even" is my take. You decide.
The story is still developing, so be sure to check out our man in Chicago, Marathon Pundit, for the latest from his area. (John, I think this Sunday would be a great time for you to attend services at Trinity)
UPDATE: Via the NYT:
"Mr. Obama informed his campaign advisers of his decision today, according to people familiar with the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak for the candidate. Mr. Obama is scheduled to explain his decision tonight in South Dakota."
This should be good. But will he be taking questions? Will Mrs Messiah be at his side? My guess is "no" and "no."
USA TODAY has details of Obama's presser: "No reason to denounce his church." What??
