Obama this week threw his pastor, Jeremiah Wright, under the bus just like his grandmother in his speech on race. Why did Barack wait until this past weekend to dropkick Rev. Wright? The Pastor didn't say anything different then in his previous sermons.
Don't get me wrong I think Pastor Wright does a disservice to those he preaches to spreading this theology of victim hood and instilling further hate in the young growing up in his church.
So why did Barack feign shock now? Does he still think we're stupid? Does he think we believe that he didn't know that his pastor had this side to him? Everyone else in the church knew their pastor. Everyone in Chicago knew the good and bad about Jeremiah Wright. But Barack Obama, legal scholar, was clueless?
No, No, No, No! Barack wasn't clueless. He knows full well what his preacher is about and still he brings his little girls to learn the theology of victim hood.
The only thing new that Pastor Wright said was a little known truth. What was this truth? What truth is so shocking that Barack Obama had to toss his Pastor aside?
Pastor Wright bottom-lined the whole thing when he said that Barack said what he had to say in the speech, distancing himself a little from the Pastor, because Barack is just a "politician" that says what he thinks the people want to hear.
Of course the pastor and Barack talked last year about this dance that is occurring between Wright and Obama. In April of 2007 in a New York Times article: Pastor Wright is quoted as saying,
“If Barack gets past the primary, he might have to publicly distance himself from me,” Mr. Wright said with a shrug. “I said it to Barack personally, and he said yeah, that might have to happen.”This well choreographed dance is too slick for even "Slick Willie." The entire concept that Barack didn't know his pastor just doesn't pass the smell test. It just isn't credible.
