He can spin and backtrack all he wants...
For me, what he said the first time was really reflective of his attitude towards working class people. WHat he is saying now, is pure spin to try to get him out of trouble.
When you take the Rev Wright stories (now THAT is a bitter point of view), Michelle Obama's statement about this is the first time she is proud to be an American, and now his bitter comment, it shows the real man behind the facade.... An unpatriotic elitist who clings on to the race card when it is convenient for him.
I am a democrat all my life, but I will vote (and campaign) for McCain if Obama wins the primary.
