Coordinated Assault on Obama

Coincidence or conspiracy? Three major international newspapers have slammed Obama's pastor, Milan's Corriere della Sera, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal all ran articles on Obama's handshaking-terms relationship with Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright. Sergio Romano, writing in the Corriere on March 10, was incensed at Wright's antisemitism. Today, March 14th, the US papers objected to Wright's perceived anti-Americanism. Romano went so far as to say that if Obama were the Democratic nominee, McCain would surely win!

The story was nowhere on the radar a week ago. I certainly appears to be the deployment of the "go nuclear" option in the Clinton arsenal.
