and I'm sure Andrew, it was with no small amount of encouragement from Obama. Johnson was detrimental to his campaign. What else could Barack do? If he allowed him to stay, he'd be a constant source of controversy.

I must say, Obama's supporters have caused him more trouble in the press than any Republican ever could. So far, he's tossed his Grandma under the bus, Reverend Wright, his church, his VP vetter Jim Johnson, Wesley Clark, and soon Reverend Jesse Jackson.
It's true Jesse Jackson has proved himself to be a racist over the years, but what strikes me as funny is Barack Obama has surrounded himself with just these type of people over the years. It hard to imagine that they don't share some common ground..

I think if anything, the black voting population will see just how little Barack Obama really supports them. His election bid is all about him, and becoming the next President.

This black on black crime has got to stop! Threatening mutilation is just one step away from a drive-by shooting.
I see Obamas support from the black community slip because of this. Could drop all they way down from 99% to maybe 95%. That would be disasterous for his Presidential bid.

. I think Jackson lost more support than Obama in this little screw up.
Thanks for the link Semperfortis. It's always better to hear things straight from the horse's mouth.

Well as no one has posted it yet, why not look at it for yourselves...
“As someone who grew up without a father in the home, Sen. Obama has spoken and written for many years about the issue of parental responsibility, including the importance of fathers participating in their children’s lives. He also discusses our responsibility as a society to provide jobs, justice, and opportunity for all. He will continue to speak out about our responsibilities to ourselves and each other, and he of course accepts Rev. Jackson’s apology,” said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton.
