Obama's Florida alibi

The controversy over Democrat Barack Obama's pastor continues, with a hard-hitting column in today's New York Times that raises questions about whether the candidate has been forthright about being unaware of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's most inflammatory remarks.

But the Obama campaign was quick to refute a source in the column who contradicts Obama's claim that he was not at church on July 22 when Wright apparently lashed out at the “United States of White America."

In fact, Obama was on his way to the National Council of La Raza gathering of Hispanic leaders in Florida, according to the campaign. See his speech at the Miami Beach Convention Center here.
