Several more news brieflets

What have we here that's worth noting for this weekend. Let see.

Barack Obama has conceded that remarks he made about working class citizens who support religion and the right to own firearms were "ill chosen":
MUNCIE, Ind. - Democrat Barack Obama on Saturday conceded that comments he made about bitter working class voters who "cling to guns or religion" were ill chosen, as he tried to stem a burst of complaints that he is condescending.

"I didn't say it as well as I should have," he said.

As Obama tried to quell the furor, presidential rival Hillary Rodham Clinton hit him with one of her lengthiest and most pointed criticisms to date.

"Senator Obama's remarks were elitist and out of touch," she said, campaigning about an hour away in Indianapolis. "They are not reflective of the values and beliefs of Americans."

At issue are comments Obama made privately at a fundraiser in San Francisco last Sunday. He explained his troubles winning over working class voters, saying they have become frustrated with economic conditions:

"It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

The comments, posted on the Huffington Post political Web site Friday, set off a storm of criticism from Clinton, Republican nominee-in-waiting John McCain and other GOP officials. It threatened to highlight an Obama Achilles heel — the image that the Harvard-trained lawyer is arrogant, aloof and carries himself with an air of superiority.
I guess it could mean something when he manages to irk people at even a left-wing site like the Huffington-Puffington Post, as I sometimes call them! (Well, isn't that funny? Come on, admit it already!) His statements most certainly were insulting, and he completely obscures that people are not against immigration, they're against ILLEGAL immigration. Why can't Obama understand that? More on what he said here.

CAIR predictably supports Jimmy Carter's meeting with Hamas in Syria. And while Ehud Olmert has fortunately refused to meet with Carter, that doesn't mean he's a worthy politician either. Remember that.
