Obama is a liar and Wright is no fool: The orchestration of an amicable repudiation

Barack now wants a press conference to condemn Reverend Wright. And so he does.

“I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened by the spectacle that we saw yesterday . . . .The person I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago,” Obama said of the man who married him.

When, Barack, when did Reverend Wright no longer act like the guy you knew? When? Was it after or before you named him as your spiritual advisor? At some point in the twenty years of your relationship he apparently changed. Do you really expect us to believe you didn’t see the change.

Barack Obama was, in fact, still a member of Trinity when Reverend Wright first said the U.S. being behind 9/11.

Barack Obama was, in fact, still a member of Trinity when Reverend Wright first said the U.S. invented AIDS to kill black men.

Obama says he never heard those sermons. We’re now left with only one of two conclusions:
(A) Either Barack Obama knew about Rev. Wright’s positions, did nothing, and is now lying to cover it up; or

(B) Barack Obama never really attended Trinity enough to pick up on Wright’s views, in which case Obama was using the church just for show and has been lying about his faith the whole time.

“I gave him the benefit of the doubt in my speech in Philadelphia explaining that he’s done enormous good. … But when he states and then amplifies such ridiculous propositions as the U.S. government somehow being involved in AIDS. … There are no excuses. They offended me. They rightly offend all Americans and they should be denounced.”

Um . . . Wright states that view a long time ago.

Folks, what’s really going on here is simple. Obama and Wright are friends. Obama tried to distance himself from Wright, but it didn’t work. Now, Obama needs to throw Wright under the bus to help himself out. Wright was happy to mouth off irrationally to give Obama another chance to repudiate and disavow his relationship with Wright. And with fresh rhetoric from Wright it wouldn’t just appear politically expedient — especially when Obama is still trying to use his relationship with Wright in the black community.

  • Wright is the Jerry Springer of the pulpit. He’s a disgrace to the name Jeremiah. How long will God allow this man to go on and on and on with his vile words, corrupting God’s Word? On stormy days, he should stay off the golf links.

  • Wright is the Jerry Springer of the Pulpit, a disgrace to the name of Jeremiah. Jerry Springer is a disgrace to bacteria. (That is another issue)
    Actually you have to be mentality inorganic waste to evenbe aware of his show that his presence any significance to any contemporary event horizon.

    I am less then optimistic about having Obama and Biden running the country after Novermber 2. No OBama is not a Terrorist(As what some Republican campaigners sarcastic rhetoric has been spewing offending many African-American Republicans throughout the nation)

    He is incompetent!!!! He has been a State Assembly man of no Consequence. In Country’s most corrupt States and Bureucracies. Not to blame individual Illinois Politcal appointed employees all they can do is work throught the Syetem and Make a name beyond that of the foul over lord that may been arrested for some fraudulent nefarious wrong doing. While they plow trying to do the right thing. (namely for themslves because as you relize when you grow-up nobody is going to do things for you. All you can do is keep your nose clean, keep your head down, and enjoy what you do. Because whatever you made you earned through your blood Sweat tears. And personal achievements) Obama is actually a person that has achieved through the old Machiavellian way of Graft and Political Oversight. He is a total “flake” case he would have been able to get a job as “Page” or Intern if he was still living in Hawaii!! They do have standards. Why don’t the African-Americans, The Women Politcal Run For the Political offices. It just goes to show there is no success in Politics. And people who go into politics are not successful at anything else and therefore Jealous of those are. AKA Obama”Greed On Wall-Street” Were those 3,000 people who died in Towers on 9/11 Greedy, Asshole! No they were hard working people who made tons of money because they were devoted to there work. Why the organizations you represented used strong-Arm tactics in Clintonesque programs who did not work. You are the typical politician who was never ambitious enought to devote yourself to a career. Its a noble and humble thing to do to make money for yourself so you don’t have to rely and selfish take from others and provide yourself with the lieberty entrepenuerialship, and Financial Freedom that is not only your right but your obligation. Your giving back by becoming Financial Successful. That’s why the Capital Markets were developed. Oh, And by the Way something else Obama there is more intolerance and greed any where in Politics and the media then there ever could be on Wall Street.

    Obama redefines the word hypocrate!!!
