A conservative radio talk-show host said that "he's had it up to here" with Sen. John McCain after the GOP presidential candidate repudiated the commentator's remarks about Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama at a campaign event.


Commentator Bill Cunningham comes under fire over remarks about Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.


"John McCain threw me under a bus -- under the 'Straight Talk Express,' " Bill Cunningham told CNN on Tuesday, referring to McCain's campaign bus.

Earlier Tuesday, Cunningham spoke at a McCain campaign event in Cincinnati and called Obama a "hack, Chicago-style Daley politician."

"All is going to be right with the world when the great prophet from Chicago takes the stand, and the world leaders who want to kill us will simply be singing 'Kumbaya' around the table of Barack Obama," the commentator told the crowd.

Cunningham, known for his flame-throwing style, repeatedly used Obama's middle name -- Hussein -- during his remarks, made as a warm-up for the audience waiting to hear McCain speak.

In his first public comment since Tuesday's event, Cunningham defended his use of Hussein, which he called "a proud Muslim name."

Quote:
"I absolutely repudiate such comments, and again I will take responsibility -- it will never happen again. It will never happen again," he said.

In a statement, Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said that McCain's remarks were appreciated: "It is a sign that if there is a McCain-Obama general election, it can be intensely competitive, but the candidates will attempt to keep it respectful and focused on issues."
There are more examples I can post.

I think Irvine was expressing frustration over your archaic fears and arguments.

I think a candidate should respond to certain remarks

not all

and spike lee referring to Bill Clinton as a Slave Master
and respected elected officials as "old house slaves" is an example


Much like when the Cunningham said Barack Hussien Obama.
McCain was right there, disavowing it.




All along I have said my concerns with Obama is lack of experience
Only serving in the senate for 3 years.

A lack of experience, I have said I believe he may be an excellent candidate in 4 or 8 years.
To suggest that I have any reservations about voting for him because he is black is very offensive to me.

McCain doesn't seem to think so.

was Spike Lee speaking at an Obama event in front of a crowd, or was he being asked his own opinion?

you seem to be suggesting that Obama has some sort of responsibility for Spike's own comments, and the only reason i can think that this connection was made was because both men are black.

perhaps not?

why does Obama have to apologize for one of Spike's comments when Spike was not speaking for Obama, let alone at an Obama event?

that is a fair question

I did not say apologize
I did say disavow

and that is what he did with Farrakhan when challenged on remarks that Farrakhan made a part and separate from any Obama event.

but you do have a valid point about the difference between the two venues
in the examples I gave

I think I am more disappointed at all the attacks on the Clintons by people that are accusing them of not having been people that have been out in front on issues in support of Black Americans

i'm sure if Tim Russert asks Obama to disavow, repudiate, spit upon, etc., these comments, or any other offensive comments made about white people by black people, he would do so.
