Barack Hussein Obama "A closer look"

"A Candidate, His Minister and the Search for Faith"
"Mr. Wright, who has long prided himself on criticizing the establishment, said he knew that he may not play well in Mr. Obama’s audition for the ultimate establishment job.

“If Barack gets past the primary, he might have to publicly distance himself from me,” Mr. Wright said with a shrug. “I said it to Barack personally, and he said yeah, that might have to happen.”

Why would BHO think he would have to distance himself if he knew nothing about the reverend's sermons?

The more I hear the more I'm convinced....
Presidential candidate Barack Obama preaches on the campaign trail that
America needs a new consensus based on faith and bipartisanship, yet he
continues to attend a controversial Chicago church whose pastor routinely refers
to "white arrogance" and "the United States of White America."
In fact, Obama was in attendance at the church when these statements were made on July 22.

. . . Wright's strong sentiments were echoed in the Sunday morning service attended by NewsMax.

Wright laced into America's establishment, blaming the "white arrogance" of
America's Caucasian majority for the woes of the world, especially the
oppression suffered by blacks. To underscore the point he refers to the country
as the "United States of White America."
Many in the congregation, including
Obama, nodded in apparent agreement as these statements were made.

FTFY.

He is the son of Mike Wallace, the longtime reporter for 60 Minutes on CBS, and Norma Kaphan. His parents divorced when he was one year old....

Despite [Chris] Wallace's blood relationship with his father Mike, both men recognize that his stepfather, Bill Leonard, had far more of an impact on his life than his biological father. Chris Wallace first developed a relationship with his father in his teens, after his older brother Peter died climbing a mountain in Greece. After the 1994 death of Leonard, the father and son moved even closer together. Mike Wallace remarks that they talk at least once a week. According to an article from 12/11/2005 on Newsmax.com titled "Chris Wallace: Mike Wallace Has 'Lost It", the relationship has soured.

Barack Obama repeatedly said, "I wasn't in church during the time that these statement were made. I did not hear such incendiary language myself, personally. Either in conversations with him or when I was in the pew, he always preached the social gospel. ... If I had heard them repeated, I would have quit. ... If I thought that was the repeated tenor of the church, then I wouldn’t feel comfortable there."

Talk about covering his butt. What does repeated mean? Twice, three times.

"In a phone call with Wright, Obama cited a Rolling Stone story, “The Radical Roots of Barack Obama," (the name of which has curiously been changed on the RS website) and told him, according to Wright, “You can get kind of rough in the sermons, so what we’ve decided is that it’s best for you not to be out there in public.”

He's got some splaining (misspelled for effect) to do.

The cats out of the bag, BHO is a racist, pure and simple. He can try to lie his way out, but it's not going change the damage done. You notice his wife has had a muzzle slapped on her recently as well.

Obama special shoot out to Rev. Jeremiah Wright:
"And then I've got to give a special shout out to my Pastor. The guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. He's a friend and a great leader not just in Chicago but all across the country, so please everybody give an extraordinary welcome to my pastor Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Jr., Trinity United Church of Christ.
Where's he at? There he is. That's him, that's him right there.
You wearing a suit today, right?"

So what's your point, Ed? You're worried that, if he's elected, he'll start treating you the way blacks have been treated in this country for, oh, 300 years or so? :lol:

Being mentored by this pastor for 20 years says much about BHO's judgment.

It seems to me, we are scraping the bottom of the barrel for a president ... kind of like "the end of the heating season, and all you have remaining is 'shale and rock' in your bin".

"N Hale Media" indeed. :blah:

It's actually good that this has come out now. His speech today was courageous to the point of heroism. Unlike an ordinary politician would have, he refused to throw his pastor under the bus, saying that he could no more do that than disavow his own [white] grandmother, who's said some racially intolerant things. He basically said, "I'm bi-racial, and I understand -- and indeed embody -- the complexities, resentments, even anger, which is present in our still-racially-separated society. And I'll take my chances that people can rise above it; if they can't, it'll just be more of the same prejudices on both sides of the racial divide." The guy's the Derek Jeter of politics.

And who among us doesn't have a pastor, or uncle, or grandparent, or parent, some of whose statements could be used to embarrass us?

If it's the end of his candidacy, or of his presidential run, he will have done more today to elevate the level of discourse about race in this country than many presidents have accomplished in their entire careers.
