Yes we can blame America first!

Barack Obama, commenting on the world after George Bush:
When George Bush steps down, the entire world is going to breathe a sigh of relief. And we will have an opportunity to go before the world and say, we want to work with you.. and we want to bring an end to malaria and HIV/AIDs in Sub-Saharan Africa.."
Wonder if that list also includes Zawahiri, Nasrallah, Kim Jong Ding Dong, and Ahmadinerjad? And whoops, guess he missed the memo on what we've already done in Sub-Saharan Africa (or maybe he doesn't hang with Bono).

His pal Louis Farrakhan seemed to echo this "he are the world" sentiment Sunday, commenting on life with Obama:
..Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said Sunday that presidential candidate Barack Obama is the "hope of the entire world" that the U.S. will change for the better.
It's a regular blame-America-first contest! But there are so many questions. Like, when it comes down to brass tacks will the mainstream American electorate really sign on to an "our fault" candidate? Will McCain, who is no doubt studying Hillary's every move right now, leverage this when the time comes? Can Obama reverse this image and how will the press be involved?

Maybe the last one is already answered. Why wouldn't the endorsement from a noted racist nutcake...of anybody...not be something that mainstream reporters would gobble up faster than free brownies and bourbon at happy hour? It's obvious, but this helps to explain it a little better.
