"Wright" and Wrong!

Fed up with the Obama nightmare...

The media nor anyone else chose Obama's church and pastor for himself and his family. HE DID. Obama has been a faithful member of this "church" (and I use that term lightly to describe the maniacal definite non-Christian behavior) for at least 20 years. There is no way on God's green earth Obama didn't know what was being preached.

ABC news bought many sermons, they all contain racist remarks that damn America. We are not talking about a preacher who is having a bad Sunday. So, rd, go ahead and down play the entire fiasco. There is no way I would ever put my trust in a political candidate who openly and independently supported this organization and leader full of hate for our United States. And, laugh if you like at Joel Osteen. He's not my pick either, but at least he does not proclaim, "God Damn America" from the pulpit.

So don't blame the media, don't blame anyone but Obama for choosing to be a sheep in this lunatic's pasture. It is hard to believe that all of a sudden he wishes to "distance" himself from this pastor...I mean he has been his spiritual advisor for two decades and is a part of his official campaign? Hopefully this will be a sign for Americans to wake up and see past the white veneer and the eloquently delivered motivational speeches.

And all I have to say is GOD BLESS AMERICA.

As the saying goes, "we can't choose our parents"... but we can choose our pastors. Most who have heard the sound bites from Reverend Wright's sermons would agree that this man is a bit over the top. What concerns me is why would Obama, an intelligent man with a firm grasp of the English language, tolerate such blatant racism, hatred and bigotry from his "spiritual" leader of 20 years?

Wright's sermons aren't the equivalent of a Trent Lott, "Whoops" ...they are cold and calculated words from an ignorant hate monger. Obviously, Obama does not control what his long time friend and pastor espouses from the pulpit, but why should he tolerate or excuse such outrageous racism in the name of religion?

I am not ready to write off Obama as our next President, but I think his campaign was seriously damaged by his association with Reverend Wright. True, Obama is an eloquent speaker and his views on racial equality were quite ground-breaking in his speech on Monday; however, there is no justification for ignorance and hatred being spewed by anyone, regardless of his race or "association" with God.

Senator Obama has the potential to become a true leader in the campaign for racial equality in our country, but he will never succeed until he distances himself from those continue to preach separatism and hate.

Forthright

Why want Obama let the Black Panthers indorse him?

Watching CNN*** Obama said he is against the war and was against it since 2002. Does he not remember why the war was started 9-11 and what the USA would look like to the rest of the world if we did nothing about the attack(to put it light)! Where was he and the anti war people on Sept. 11 2001?? If Bush was to have done nothing about the attack.. would Obama be saying we should have done something?? That just a little screwed up to be against our retaliation for the attack on the US..
True the US being in iraq has went a little long, but we must make sure the job is done and not pull out to early again like we did before.. I think for Obama to say the war is wrong is wrong for him to say!!

I agree with janus*** When the iraquis attacked us on 9-11 they had to have know we would retaliate. saddam should have nown beter then to mess with us. how can obama be against 911????!!!!!

I can see why this country is so far behind the rest of the civilized world read the comments from these three people, thought to ponder, temple of janus, and anonymous. First, Obaba cannot control who indorse him. Second, the war in Iraq was started because Bush thought that they had weapons of mass destruction which they did not find. Bush also said that they tried to kill his daddy. Get your facts together next time so you won't appear so stupid

Yes, I agree with above... get a little educated on the facts. Al Queda attacked on 9-11, not the Iraquis. That is the reason we went into Afghanistan to find Ben Laden and Al Queda operatives. It is separate from the Iraq debacle.

I find it interesting that people are so quick to post their "opinions" when they do not have all the facts. Just like the main comments by "fed up with the Obama nightmare" and forthright. Did you even listen to Obama's speech in it's entirety?

Anonymous said...

Wow, I can see also why our country might fall behind others..."Obaba" cannot control who "indorses" him, but he can control the people he associates with and approves. So, anonymous, maybe YOU could get your facts straight so your stupidity doesn't shine so brightly : )

Now, to the 2nd anonymous...I feel like I am educated on the facts. So, your suggestion to "get a little educated" does not amuse me. I did listen to Obama's speech in its entirety and I still believe (as do most Americans)that mere association with a pastor exhibits poor judgment. Obama cannot have it both ways - he cannot preach racial unity and support a man who hates anyone who is not black. Additionally, "Ben Laden", Al Queda and Iraq are three separate topics. However, if you believe they are not all intertwined in a complex relationship, you need to "get a little educated" on the facts ;)
So yes, I am fed up with the Obama nightmare just as many others!

So sad. Such ignorance. Are all the above sharing one brain? Or simply a portion of a very small one?

I think Obama's speech was outstanding. He gave the world a very clear insight on the issue of race in this country.
I am not an Obama supporter, and for selfish/fiscal reasons would not vote for him or any democrat.
However, the fact that his whole great campaign is crumbling (look at the latest Gallup polls) over this single issue of his church affiliation, makes me believe that the American voters are not very sophisticated and are not looking at the big picture.
I guess this white christian nation is not ready for change.

Why does everyone have the same "anonymous" name? Do you not understand how to use a nickname?? Very easy!! Show how smart you are and pick a nick name!! Stop showing your ignorance by using the anonymous identity. Select "name/URL"

I will use anonymous anytime I wish :)

you must be ignorant. NO YOU ARE IGNORANT!!

Anonymous said...

Atleast I am anonymously ignorant...LOL!! It is so apparent that the Obama supporters do not like the pastor scandal and are ready for it to go away. However, it's not! It is a pertinent issue that definitely helps to define Obama's beliefs and character. You don't spend 1/2 your life with this pastor and not know what is going on and what the church stands for. Now, we all know if anyone else makes racist comments like Wright has, they are fried, aka Trent Lott. Also, how about Obama comparing Geraldine Ferraro's to his pastor. I don't blame the chick, I'd be pist too. So, we all are entitled to our own opinions and just because someone differs from yours, does not make anyone ignorant.

Correct. Unless they are illiterate.

I hate to say it, but NO. I could have dealt with the preacher issue alone, but when Obama added the thoughtless comment about "typical white people," he lost my vote. I had looked froward to supporting him. If that comment slipped out as easily as it did while he was campaigning and supposedly choosing his words carefully, how much more of his feelings would have emerged later in office? I'm not voting for Hillary---her motives are somewhat self-focused---so it looks like McCain in '08. I hope the Democrats are pleased with themselves.

Yep, Obama just keeps digging the hole deeper. He is such a disappointment. I think most of America has realized his judgment skills are seriously lacking. What kind of man would expose his daughters to the likes of "Rev" Wright??

"Given my background, my politics, and my professed values and ideals, there will no doubt be those for whom my statements of condemnation are not enough. Why associate myself with Reverend Wright in the first place, they may ask? Why not join another church? And I confess that if all that I knew of Reverend Wright were the snippets of those sermons that have run in an endless loop on the television and You Tube, or if Trinity United Church of Christ conformed to the caricatures being peddled by some commentators, there is no doubt that I would react in much the same way"



"Some will see this as an attempt to justify or excuse comments that are simply inexcusable. I can assure you it is not. I suppose the politically safe thing would be to move on from this episode and just hope that it fades into the woodwork. We can dismiss Reverend Wright as a crank or a demagogue, just as some have dismissed Geraldine Ferraro, in the aftermath of her recent statements, as harboring some deep-seated racial bias.

But race is an issue that I believe this nation cannot afford to ignore right now. We would be making the same mistake that Reverend Wright made in his offending sermons about America - to simplify and stereotype and amplify the negative to the point that it distorts reality."

I see the news channels have stopped talking about Rev Wright. I feard that Obama's people come down on them to stop talking about it..

Ok. Here's what I propose. Let's make voting an earned privilege, based on a system similar to college entrance exams. Our high school students must earn a minimum score on the ACT or SAT to enter college; if you want a graduate degree, you must pass the GRE or LSAT or MCAT, etc. In other words, we don't trust just anyone to make decisions about our health, our higher education, our legal issues and so on. Having a "good feeling" about a candidate is not a sound reason to vote---or not vote---for him or her. I want my next President to be elected by persons who are informed about the issues that have relevance to our lives, not someone who votes because a candidate is black, white, female, male, Baptist, Mormon, or whatever. I want to feel that our next President was elected by a populace that knows the difference between the words "endorses" and "indorses"---the latter of which is not in my dictionary. Perhaps when our founding fathers drew up the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they expected us to use good sense! (We already know that they never expected women or slaves to vote; those changes have since been added, so why not continue to improve upon the system?)
