Obama Throws Wright Under The Bus As His Chickens Come Home To Roost (Updated)Topics: Political News and commentaries
First it was his grandmother in the Philadelphia speech; now, suddenly - post his outrageous tirade yesterday, it's Jeremiah Wright. The problem for Obama is that there's nothing any of us, including Obama, now know about Wright after his Press Club exhibition that we didn't know about Wright weeks ago. As for Obama, to believe that he hasn't known about Wright all along, is absurd.
Paul at Powerline writes:
The problem, of course, is that Obama's partial defense of Wright in the Philadelphia speech still applies. Obama's analysis was that Wright's hateful statements were an understandable reaction to what he experienced growing up and that, although these statements cannot be condoned, they do not represent the totality of what Wright stands for much less what his church has accomplished. The addition of a few more hateful statements doesn't affect this analysis. The addition of bad election and poll results clearly did.And as PrestoPundit puts it:
In revising his position on Wright, Obama relies in part on his pastor's association with Louis Farrakhan. But Wright's admiration for Farrakhan has long been known; publicity over the award Wright presented to Farrakhan pre-dates the "outing" of Wright's sermons. Moreover, it took some pushing by Hillary Clinton just to get Obama himself strongly to denounce Farrakhan.
In any case, Obama's concession (finally) that Wright is beyond the pale arguably raises more acutely than ever the question of how this hatemongering crackpot could have been Obama's spiritual mentor for nearly 20 years
DO YOU BELIEVE HIM?So, can anyone honestly find Obama's rejection of Wright - now, given "twenty years in the pews, tapes of Jeremiah Wright taken with him to Harvard Law, his having been inspired by Wright's remarks about white greed impoverishing the poor and the sins of the American armed forces, after years in which Obama went out of his way to soak amid exactly the same sorts of cant from his self-selected Marxist professors, from his leftist, Black Nationalist and Third World friends and family, and from his Nation of Islam associates," even remotely credible?Twenty years in the pews. Tapes of Jeremiah Wright taken with him to Harvard Law. Inspired by Wright's remarks about white greed impoverishing the poor and the sins of the American armed forces -- after years in which Obama went out of his way to soak amid exactly the same sorts of cant from his self-selected Marxist professors, from his leftist, Black Nationalist and Third World friends and family, and from his Nation of Islam associates. (You can read about it in Obama's memoir). No, I don't think Obama is coming clean on this.
Only if one just fell off the turnip truck yesterday!
Add to the requirement for someone to be incredibly naive and gullible in order to believe Obama now, there's another little matter that makes Obama all the more insincere and unbelievable:
the word on the street is that Barack Obama did not repudiate or further "distance" himself from Wright (who, by the way, he cannot "distance" himself from) last night, but rather waited until today, because he was polling on whether he should make the move all night.America can only hope that finally, Obama's chickens are finally coming home to roost, and we can rid our country of the threat posed to it by a Black Nationalist Marxist with a dangerous agenda for America, getting the keys to the oval office.
