Obama Runs Grandmother Under The Bus, Then Runs Rev. Wright Under The Bus, Who In Turn Ran Obama Under The Bus, Who Then Ran The Bus Over The Reverend - Oh My, What A Mess!Topics: Political News and commentaries
It would be comical if it weren't so pathetic, and potentially dangerous - should Obama and his "pastor" wind up in the White House!
When the controversy surrounding the "God Damn America" and other vitriolic, hate-mongering, anti- American, racists comments spewed by Rev. Wright first flared up, and how was it possible that Barack Obama could have sat in the pews for twenty years listening to it all, claiming Rev. Wright was not only his "pastor," but his "mentor and spiritual advisor," Obama nonchalantly brushed it off by throwing his white grandmother "under the bus" to trivialize Rev. Wright's comments, by comparing the Reverend's "Black Liberation Theology," Afro-centric, doctrines of anti-white bigotry, resentment, and hate, to his own white, grandmother's, "innate racism," supposedly the fear of "black men," quote:
"I can no more disown [Rev. Wright] than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe."
In spite of the "cringing" at least he owned to the fact that his ailing, white, maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, is the one who raised him, gave him the privileged opportunities that have brought him to where he now is, and dealt with the regrettable consequences of her rebellious, feminist, atheist, daughter's irresponsible actions - namely him - and not the mother of the black, Kenyan, Muslim, Marxist father that left Obama, and his unbearable mother when he was a child, that he so "Lionizes" in his book "Dreams From My Father" (perhaps poor, old, grandma was justified in fearing "black men" after all).
Then, amusingly, Obama threw Rev. Wright "under the bus" when, though not quite disowning him or condemning the despicable comments of Rev. Wright, he yet distanced himself from the Reverend as "persona non grata" and suffered a convenient episode of amnesia about what he had heard the "good" Reverend spew in twenty years of sitting in the pews at Trinity.
Meanwhile, double-faced "Janus" Obama, though distancing himself in public from Rev. Wright, yet he secretly would sneak to "pray" with him in basements and seek his "spiritual guidance" while avoiding him upstairs at the functions and rallies. Now, all politicians have "skeletons in their closets," but one has to wonder if Obama becomes president, and is faced, for instance, with Iran or Syria attacking Israel, if in spite of all his pro-Israel rhetoric, and empty promises, he will really defend Israel, or most likely pull Rev. Wright out of some "closet" of the White House to "pray" with him (God Damn America!), and get Rev. Wright's anti-Semitic "spiritual guidance" on how to better "betray" Israel and surrender the Israelis to their rapacious Arab neighbors!
Of course, it would have taken a bit of humility on the part of caustic, narcissistic, megalomaniac, Rev. Wright, to simply keep a low profile in order not to further "muddy" Obama with his detestable twenty year "association" with him, and the "good" Reverend launched into a whirlwind "Rock-Star" tour of public appearances and engagements, where Obama's unrepentant pastor, not only reiterated his "God Damn America" but would not budge an inch from his vitriolic black resentment doctrines of anti-Semitism, bigotry, and hate, culminating in throwing Obama "under the bus and stepping on the gas," when in his interview with Bill Moyers (that other "Hate America" luminary), Rev. Wright commented about Obama's "two-facedness" with a shrug: "He's a politician, I'm a pastor. We speak to two different audiences. And he says what he has to say as a politician. I say what I have to say as a pastor."
Oh, you mean to tell us, Reverend, that "Empty Suit" Obama is not what he wants the gullible American electorate to believe he is?!?! That there are other hidden "agendas" to the toothy "Black Messiah"?!?! You don't say!
And now it is a coy Obama, with his monkey tail between his legs, who threw Rev. Wright "under the bus and ran him over," and disingenuously wants to make us "oafs who cling in our bitterness to our guns and to religion" believe that this time around he truly condemns Rev. Wright's vile utterances, has finally disowned him for good, and voters should give him credit and credence for it - after all, it only took Obama twenty years to realize and do it:
"The person that I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago," he said. "His comments were not only divisive and destructive, but I believe that they end up giving comfort to those who prey on hate, and I believe that they do not portray accurately the perspective of the black church. They certainly don't portray accurately my values and beliefs... If Reverend Wright thinks that's political posturing, as he put it, then he doesn't know me very well and based on his remarks yesterday, I may not know him as well as I thought either."Yeah, right! Sure, we believe you Obama. Heh!
"I gave him the benefit of the doubt in my speech in Philadelphia, explaining that he has done enormous good in the church," he said. "But when he states and then amplifies such ridiculous propositions as the U.S. government somehow being involved in AIDS; when he suggests that Minister Farrakhan somehow represents one of the greatest voices of the 20th and 21st century; when he equates the U.S. wartime efforts with terrorism - then there are no excuses. They offend me. They rightly offend all Americans. And they should be denounced, and that's what I'm doing very clearly and unequivocally here today."
"It is antithetical to my campaign. It is antithetical to what I'm about. It is not what I think America stands for," he said.
Of course, that doesn't even begin to explain his own wife Michelle's "Wright-like," "Hugo Chávez-styled," anti-American comments and attitude, or explain away that privileged resented Black woman's huge "racial chip" on her shoulders. But then that is another "can of worms"!
Wow! If only many of our cities would have as much "bus service"!
I wonder if Obama and Rev.Wright will still secretly meet in basements, though!

A bit dicey,along with some envelope-pushing, but the post likely speaks for the way a lot of "bitter white people" are thinking about now - given the overt racism displayed by the Obamas and Wright. And given Obama's "audacity" to claim himself to be post-racial and "beyond politics" when he is in fact far from either, juxtaposed with his inclination to call anyone's questioning of his judgment and credibility as being racially-motivated, little wonder that resentment and disgust for this guy is building among the white working class.
