Cindy, too

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

In an ap­pear­ance on ABC’s “Good Morn­ing Amer­ica” on May 19, Sen. Barack Obama sternly warned the col­lec­tive news me­dia to keep his wife out of their sights — or else.

“If wives are off lim­its in the pol­i­tics theater, then are Democrats not guilty of the same sin by at­tack­ing Cindy McCain for not re­leas­ing her tax re­turns?” coun­tered Jake Tap­per of ABC News the next day.

“It was just this month that the Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee is­sued a press re­lease say­ing that by ‘fail­ing to re­lease Cindy McCain’s re­turns, the McCain cam­paign is rais­ing se­ri­ous con­cerns about his own cred­i­bil­ity, about how McCain’s po­si­tion as a U.S. Sen­a­tor may have ben­e­fited John and Cindy McCain’s busi­ness ven­tures, and about how McCain’s po­lit­i­cal ca­reer has ben­e­fited from her per­sonal wealth.’ ”
