"Bored" Obama Must Be Defeated

Frankly, I am tired of reading in almost every Op-Ed piece and every news piece that Obama is the "likely Democratic nominee." There is every reason to believe that he is failing to close to close the deal and with each passing day there is a new episode or news break to signal that he would be a weak candidate.
First of all, there was the slip by an aid in an article in the NYTimes that Obama is "bored" with the primary campaign and would prefer to be finished with Clinton and move onto a general election strategy. The fact that he is "bored" can be connected to the elitest comments he made in San Fran about "bitter" Americans who "cling" to guns and god. The fact that he is "bored" with the primary seems to signal that he feels entitled in some way to the nomination - just as he was bored in the Senate and decided that only being President would satisfy his ambition -
Would he get "bored" being President? Especially when he comes up against opposition that is much more forceful than what Clinton is posing right now.
There is also Wright. This man is not going to go away. Not only did he defend himseld over the last three days, he elaborated on what he had said, providing more fodder for just about everyone to toss back at Barack. He said is will go after Barack starting on Nov 5th to ennact radical policy proposals that are not in step with most of American tradition.
As regards Barack, he can say until the cows come home that Wright doesn't speak for him or his campaign, but everyone in the country already associates Wright with Obama. If it weren't for Obama, who went to that church for over 20 years and donated god's know how much money to it, no one would know who Wright was. Obama is saddled with Wright.
As Barack fails, Hillary is gainging momentum. Her baggage, even with Bill, is nothing compared to the mess Obama has going on right now.
Barack must be defeated. Hillary must be the nominee.
