Mainstream News Media Tell Us All About Ann Romney's Horse
As far as we can tell, this kind of intense, almost anthropological interest in the Romneys isn't unusual. Everything about Romney — his prep school hijinks, his career at Bain Capital, his wife's horse, his car elevator and of course his religion — has been scrutinized. But President Obama, almost finished with his first term, has gotten nothing close to the same attention.
We say this because, while the media appear to have a fascination with the arcana of Mitt's life and religion, they show little interest in Obama's own background and religious history — and how he's tried to hide them.
We're referring, of course, to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor for 20 years, the man who baptized his children, officiated at his wedding and served as mentor and guide while the future president lived in Chicago.
