Excerpt from Obama speech on faith-based iniative in Ohio:

“President Bush came into office with a promise to ‘rally the armies of compassion,’ establishing a new Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. I still believe it’s a good idea to have a partnership between the White House and grassroots groups, both faith-based and secular. But it has to be a real partnership – not a photo-op. That’s what it will be when I’m President. I’ll establish a new Council for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships…it will be a critical part of my administration.”
After siding with Thomas and Scalia on the death penalty ruling last week, the reversal on FISA and now this, how many right turns can Obama make without inflaming the base?

  1. Who are we talking about here when refer to the base? DailyKOS or the much larger group of people who have reliably voted democrat? Are you suggesting Sen. Obama is making mistakes with regards to his core constintuents?

  2. Uh, consider the base inflamed.

  3. I guess I’m not part of Obama’s base; I’m one of the many stuck voting for him because McCain is much worse. Inflamed, though. Definitely inflamed.

  4. Please. If anyone has read his first book, they’d know that Obama values Faith-based orgs b/c they can get to the people who need help the most. It’s on par with his life story, not pandering or calculated…
