This video speaks for itself. Doesn’t matter how much Obama tries to distance himself from the man.
Fighting for peace is like raping for virginity
We don’t see what we are doing is the same thing as al-Qaeda is doing under a different color flag
Oh sure, he condemns his sermons now that he is “THIS” close to the Presidency. No condemnation 20 years ago when he felt at home under the warm glow of hatred. Hell, he won’t even require the racist to step down…only if he wants to.
And then the lies (as described by Ed Morrissey):
I think this is about as good as Obama can do with this, but there is at least another glaring problem apart from AP’s excellent analysis above. Here’s a portion of the statement from HuffPo today:
In other words, he has never been my political advisor; he’s been my pastor.
And here’s Obama in the Chicago Tribune in January 2007:
Obama says that rather than advising him on strategy, Wright helps keep his priorities straight and his moral compass calibrated. …
Though Wright and Obama do not often talk one-on-one often, the senator does check with his pastor before making any bold political moves.
Last fall, Obama approached Wright to broach the possibility of running for president. Wright cautioned Obama not to let politics change him, but he also encouraged Obama, win or lose.
Those two statements clearly conflict, so the question becomes this: is he lying now, or was he lying then?
That’s BO’s version of the iced tea defense. We’re supposed to believe in his 20 year friendship/mentorship with Rev. Wright, not once, not ever, did Barack Obama ever hear anything remotely close to what’s been quoted as being said by Wright in the news. Keep in mind that one of the hallmarks of Wright’s “social gospel” philosophy – in fact his entire being – is an emphasis on “black power” – again, which sounds something you’d hear from the Black Panthers. Yet not once did Wright ever utter anything of the sort in front of Barack Obama. Either Wright figures BO has virgin ears, or BO is feeding us a load. I vote for the latter option.
Read Sister’s whole post and her utter decimation of Obama’s lame excuse that, well, gosh man….I never heard anything like that when I was there….
Just a lame attempt at damage control from the Obama campaign, and one reason why Hillary was a smart lady to not have taken the advice of pretty much the entire Democrat conglomerate to drop out.
