The Obama campaign has apologized to two Muslim women excluded by campagin volunteers from appearing on stage at a campaign event this week at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena so that the candidate would not be photographed with supporters that are visibly identifiable as Muslim.
The next day, Obama did appear in this photo-op at a community college with a hijabi. Disappointing to say the least.
Even though these incidents are being blamed on misinformed campaign volunteers, it reminds me of the coolly political way he threw the Rev. Jeremiah Wright “under the bus” and his church when it became politically inconvenient for him and gives me pause to think what the next campaign issue or policy will get the same treatment but given the alternatives, I’m still not voting for McCain or Barr.
