Victim Barack Obama Plays the Age Card Against McCain

There is at least one type of discrimination that is allowed by the media this year…
Media darling Barack Obama played the age card today in discussing John McCain with Wolf Blitzer.
CNN reported:

Barack Obama chastised John McCain Thursday for engaging in “smear” politics, and defended himself from critics who question whether he is capable of being commander-in-chief, during a wide-ranging interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer — his first sit-down since the Indiana and North Carolina primaries.

“This is offensive, and I think it’s disappointing,” Obama told Blitzer, when asked his thoughts about McCain’s comments that the terrorist organization Hamas wants Obama to be president. “Because John McCain always says ‘I am not going to run that kind of politics,’ and to engage in that kind of smear is unfortunate, particularly because my policy toward Hamas has been no different than his.

“I’ve said it’s a terrorist organization and we should not negotiate with them unless they recognize Israel, renounce violence, and unless they are willing to abide by previous accords between the Palestinians and the Israelis. So for him to toss out comments like that I think is an example of him losing his bearings as he pursues this nomination. We don’t need name calling in this debate.”

Of course, Hamas DID support Obama along with every other enemy of the United States so it’s not a smear- It’s truth.

They are very public about it.
The fact that Gazans support Barack Obama is no surprise.

They hold meetings before each Democratic primary to promote Obama.

But, the fact that Obama can get away with accusing a 70 year-old man of “losing his bearings” is evidence that Barack has no problem with playing the age card against his opponent.

Charlie Foxtrot has more words for Obama.

LOST BEARINGS UPDATE: Obama spoke about his trips to the 57 states today… 57.
