  •  Right. He spoke the truth and you (6+ / 0-)

    think he stabbed Obama in the back.  Ha.   Obama knows what he said was true but he had to back off because of politics.

    •  You just don't get it. (0+ / 0-)

      After the Press Club fuck-up, Wright left Obama no choice but to resign from Trinity.

      I defy you to find anyone who understands the dynamics of a national campaign to tell me I'm wrong about this. One of the cardinal rules of a campaign is that you don't do anything to distract from the candidate.

      I absolutely believe that Wright was judged harshly for his sermons. But I also believe that Obama went out of his way not to shun him or disgrace him. But after the Press Club, Obama had no choice.

      Wright fucked up. And he repayed Obama's kindness with betrayal, AFAIC.

    •  Rev. Wright ought to be seated next to Joe (0+ / 0-)

      betrayer Lieberman at the inauguration, and teach Joe a lesson or two in righteousness, boy would that be a fun smackdown.
