Obama FINALLY Repudiates Wright

I fail to see how people can still believe anything this guys says.

When Rev. Wright first came to the public's notice and refused to stop being an issue of the Obama campaign, Obama came out and gave his big "racial healing" speech. I was not impressed. He threw his Grandmother under the bus and told us all to stop over-reacting to Wright. We needed to consider the times that had framed his opinions and impressions and get over it.

Obama really hoped that would be the end of it.

But alas! In recent days, Obama's pastor of 20 years has become a media darling and has been spouting his hatred in well-publicized venues. And the stuff he's been saying -- well, the claim can no longer be made that the statements were "taken out of context."

What has Rev. Wright been saying? Well, it is all on YouTube and you can watch it if you want, but the gist of it is pure unadulterated racism.

What else do you call it when he is making a claim that there are genetic differences between whites and blacks? He claims things about black people being descended from one preferred group and whites from another. It is all so disgusting!

So much for "racial healing." Martin Luther King, Jr. is rolling over in his grave. I don't think this is what he dreamed about anyway...

But, back to Obama. As you recall, the first time Rev. Wright made the MSM, Obama came galloping up on a white horse to defend his crazy uncle. He could no more disown Rev. Wright than he could disown the black community, remember? And yet, now that Rev. Wright's own distinct brand of racism is back again in the national spotlight and so obviously vile as to no longer be brushed under the carpet and ignored, he repudiates the man and his statements.

Now we are to believe, Obama has finally heard the real message this man preaches. A message he's apparently not been preaching consistently for the past 20 years, despite all evidence to the contrary.



This is pure politics. Obama is still trying to tie up the Democratic nomination and Hillary is still not fading into the sunset. The last thing Obama needs right now is ties to a crazy racist minister that he's apologized for before. Obama has to distance himself. Has to. So don't go trying to convince me that he's a "different" kind of politician. That's a lie. He's got the playbook and he is following it to the letter.

Article 36: Be sure to disavow any politically inconvenient relatives, friends, or acquaintances as soon as it becomes necessary.

Same ol' politics, different year.

Quit drinkin' the koolaid folks.

Obama's "new tone" was never anything more than a clever political strategy. This is a guy who owes his election to the US Senate to dirty politics. Both Blair Hull (Democratic primary opponent) and Jack Ryan (Republican opponent) fell victim to media revelations about past marital issues. You're right when you say that Obama is a typical politician. But there is one critical difference: Obama has enjoyed unprecendented support from the mainstream media. He's only now getting the vetting he should've gotten years ago.
