Romney deserves high praise
The Kansas City Star
Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney should get high praise for denouncing a conservative super PAC’s efforts to pull President Barack Obama’s former pastor into the 2012 campaign.
The Ending Spending Action Fund planned to run a $10 million ad campaign drawing attention to racially provocative sermons of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright at his Chicago church. The super PAC clearly is trying to inject race into the presidential contest.
To a lot of people’s dismay, Obama, the nation’s first African American president, has barely brought the issue of race into his first term in the White House.
But race clearly hasn’t presented itself at all in this year’s campaign. In Florida Romney told The Associated Press: “I think it’s the wrong course for a PAC or a campaign. I hope that our campaigns can be respectively about the future and about issues and about vision for America.”
Way to go Romney.
