Reverend Wright Is Back

June 11th, 2009

In case there’s someone who hasn’t heard of him, Reverend Jeremiah Wright is President Obama’s former pastor and mentor of over 20 years.  Wright’s racist, anti-semitic, and anti-American rants did serious damage to the campaign before Obama threw him under the bus.  He’s back.

At the annual Hampton University Ministers’ Conference in Virginia, Wright was interviewed by the Daily Press, a local paper.  Here’s part of their report:

Wright told the Daily Press that he has not spoken to his former church member since Obama became president, and he implied that the White House won’t allow Obama to talk to him.

“Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me,” Wright said. “I told my baby daughter that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office. …

“They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. … I said from the beginning: He’s a politician; I’m a pastor. He’s got to do what politicians do.”

    I guess Wright has never read the constitution. If Obama’s to be a lame duck, it will be in 3 1/2 or 7 1/2 years. Five years or eight years from now, Obama will be the former president, not a lame duck.

    No, he won’t be the former president for 8 years, lol. I don’t think Wright thinks or reads much at all. He is on the fanatic fringe.

    Unfortunately, he may be on the fringe, but there are lots out there with him. And, as Wright pointed out, what the president is doing is because of politics, not because Obama actually believes that he shouldn’t have been in Wright’s congregation for 20 years. IOW, Obama did not suddenly grow a conscience over this. He (the president) is who he is and who he was.

    Hopefully Obama will be the “former president” in 4 years and, better yet, impeached in less than 2.

    We all know that you can tell alot about a person based on who their associates are. In particular, that is paramount when we learn about who their spiritual advisor is/was. This is not rocket science, it is very straight forward.

    As I have said repeatedly, this president is a product of the Chicago Daly machine. The only place that has more corrupt politics than Cook County/Chicago is my home state of Louisiana.

    When one is created by a bunch of thugs, it would be difficult to be anything else.
