Obama Takes a Stand on Wright
Posted by Ryan on April 29, 2008
NEWSFLASH: It only took Barack Obama 20 years to notice that his Reverend is crazy. That’s the kind of man I think we need to bring “hope” and “change” to the White House and America! Obama calls Wright’s statements over the weekend as, among other things, “a bunch of rants that aren’t grounded in truth.”
However, what about all the crazy things Wright said before and after 9/11? Back then, at least until last month, Obama could “no more disown him than [he] can disown the black community.” Sounds like a flip-flop.
This episode has illustrated one major thing about Obama: he’s a politician just like every other politician, except even worse in some regards. Of course, he needed to do this politically, but it also showed himself to be a hypocrite who’s willing to dump those he’s closest to if that means scoring political points — and doing so in the most public of ways.
