With the polls showing that the Nation is beginning to see Mitt Romney as the man for the job, President Barack Obama may be getting desperate. According to San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, the President recently held a conference call with black preachers, including his controversial friend Jeremiah Wright, in an attempt to get blacks to vote.
Brown wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle:
If Obama looks as if he’s going black, he could turn off white people. So he’s largely been lying low on the race issues — visibly pushing for the Latino vote, the gay vote, the women’s vote, but not the black vote.
But last weekend, he held a conference call with a collection of black preachers that included his old pastor, Jeremiah Wright. He wanted to talk to them about getting out the vote.
The Obama campaign quickly tried to stifle the story, saying that Brown’s “report is false.”
When asked if Wright has been involved in the campaign, spokeswoman Lis Smith said, “He has not. The story is totally incorrect.”
