Working from home today, I listened to Barack
Obama's press conference. Instapundit says
"Too little, too late, and too lawyerly..." I disagree. It was just too late.
Obama made this speech when the Revved Wright issue first appeared, Obama may have emerged unscathed, maybe even smelling like a rose. I liked what Obama said. I feel that much of what he said needed to be said by a prominent black man. How can race relations improve when some believe that the U.S. government created the AIDS to kill blacks?
Unfortunately, Obama waited too long. Despite his well chosen and appropriate words, the press conference looks more like a political maneuver than anything else.
