Krauthammer: "Appalling Double Standard" on Teenage Romney Prank Vs. Obama's Adult Adventures With Reverend Wright

Obvious enough, but it can't be said enough.

I think there is an appalling double standard here. Itís okay for the Washington Post to run a five thousand word front page story on a prank that Romney, at the age of 15, committed. And yet itís somehow illegitimate, the low road or whatever, for people to bring up the fact that the adult Obama had a 20-year relationship with a racist anti-American preacher whom he considered, spoke about, wrote about as his mentor and spiritual advisor. That is a double standard unlike any Iíve ever seen.

He thinks it's legitimate, but it would be a tactical mistake for Romney to bring it up:

But today, I would say, tactically itís a mistake because we know who Obama is. He isnít the unknown of Ď08. Heís got a record and you donít have to bring it up. But in principle, if you want to do it, it would be completely legitimate and I think the double standard ought to be denounced rather than accepted as everybody, including Romney, does.

That's a fair distinction, one that I make all the time: You may have a right to do something, but that doesn't mean it's your best option.

He's right that Romney should focus on the economy. And so should Romney's supporters -- we should focus on that.

But that doesn't mean that we -- not Romney, but Obama critics -- shouldn't bring this other business up.

I continue to be flabbergasted that we have Reverend Wright on tape saying that an Obama crony offered him $150,000 to be silent until the election of 2008 and yet many on the right seem unaware of this.

On the left, sure, I'd get it. Cocooning, partisan bias.

Why is the right unaware of this?

This is breaking news, new news. You can say many aspects of the Wright relationship are old news and already baked into the cake, but not this payoff business. This just came out last week.

Of course it's relevant. And it reminds us of the Chicago Way of dirty politics, which Mr. Hope and Change seems to be a master of.
