Obama Surrogate Says Obama Lacked “Political Courage” To Leave Wright’s Church

Pamela Geller of Atlas Sruggs captured this video of New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, arguing with Jews at a Boca Raton, Florida synagoguge. Nadler, who made the visit to make the case for Obama, argued that Obama joined Trinity United Church for political reasons because it was the largest church in his Senate district, and “he didn’t have the political courage to make the statement of walking out” once he had joined, even though he didn’t share the views of Rev. Wright. It’s actually an explanation that I think is a lot closer to the truth than what Obama and most of his defenders have argued, but quite shocking that Nadler would make that argument so close to the election. In another clip, he declared, “Let Russia invade [Georgia]. It’s right next to them.”
