On March 13th, 2008, history came back to bite Barack Obama in the a$$,
A tape (circa 2001) of Obama's pastor, Jeremiah Wright, surfaced with Reverend Wright going off on America and, in particular, white people. His rant of "G-D damn America" still resonates in our ears and has been and still is the bane of Obama's campaign.
Obama has, time after time, defended his minister, saying that he is (and I paraphrase) like the crazy old uncle that nobody listens to anyway. His campaign has said:
"Sen. Obama has said repeatedly that personal attacks such as this have no place in this campaign or our politics, whether they're offered from a platform at a rally or the pulpit of a church. Sen. Obama does not think of the pastor of his church in political terms. Like a member of his family, there are things he says with which Sen. Obama deeply disagrees. But now that he is retired, that doesn't detract from Sen. Obama's affection for Rev. Wright or his appreciation for the good works he has done."Well. Obama defended his minister and his church for exactly 78 days. Today, Barack Hussein Obama, Barry, as it were, quit his church. I want to know one thing...
Whiskey–Tango–Foxtrot Took So Long? ! ? ! ?
Anyway, add one more gaffe to the many, the fact that Barry took so long to finally quit his racist, seperatist church, the one his children have been brought up in, the one that they attended, molding their fragile young minds...but I digress.
Read about his decision here.
