(AURN) -- It is unclear if President Obama read the New York Times article about an effort to smear him in ways to bring up Reverend Jeremiah Wright and attack his presidential record, among other things. The President is currently the target of a nasty ad campaign (that allegedly has been squashed) where among other things he is being called a 'Metrosexual Black Abe Lincoln'.
