RNC’s Duncan slams Obama’s ties to Rezko

Of course the Republicans are out to spoil Sen. Barack Obama’s historical triumph. The criticisms started well before Obama came to St. Paul Tuesday night, and is, apparently gearing up.

The Republican Nation Committee’s chair, Robert M. “Mike” Duncan, released a statement late Wednesday concerning the conviction of longtime Obama associate Tony Rezko. Quoth the chairman (bold emphasis his):

“On the day Barack Obama hoped to unite his party after wheezing over the finish line and claiming the Democrat nomination, a jury in his hometown of Chicago convicted his longtime friend and fundraiser Tony Rezko of multiple felonies. This is further proof that Obama’s high-flying rhetoric is just that and in no way represents the kind of change our nation demands. Today’s verdict and Obama’s friendship with Rezko raise serious questions about whether he has the judgment to serve as president.”

Some rather high-flying rhetoric from Duncan himself. It’s a long way to November.
