Injecting himself directly into the presidential campaign and speaking before one of its most crucial constituencies, Jewish voters, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg on Friday morning forcefully rejected what he called a “whisper campaign” in the Jewish community linking Senator Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, to Islam.Note that Bloomberg made this speech in the 22nd District, where Republican challenger Allen West’s campaign manager told me that many Jewish voters were “uncomfortable” with Obama. I don’t think such discomfort can be rightly attributed to a “whisper campaign,” but is far more due to Obama’s affiliation with radicals like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Rev. Michael Pfleger.
