Obama outraged by former pastor’s comments

April 29th, 2008 . by TexasFred

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Democrat Barack Obama said Tuesday he was outraged and appalled by the latest comments from his former pastor, who asserted that criticism of his fiery sermons is an attack on the black church and the U.S. government was responsible for the creation of the AIDS virus.

The presidential candidate is seeking to tamp down the growing fury over Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his incendiary remarks that threaten to undermine his campaign.

“I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened by the spectacle that we saw yesterday,” Obama told reporters at a news conference.

After weeks of staying out of the public eye while critics lambasted his sermons, Wright made three public appearances in four days to defend himself. The former pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago has been combative, providing colorful commentary and feeding the story Obama had hoped was dying down.

“This is not an attack on Jeremiah Wright,” Wright told the Washington media Monday. “It has nothing to do with Senator Obama. It is an attack on the black church launched by people who know nothing about the African-American religious tradition.”

I only have one question I want to ask, IF Obama will throw his friends and family under the bus, what do you think he’ll do to America when his Muslim controllers pull the strings??

Think about it…

    He not only threw Wright under the bus, he backed up and ran over him again….
    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t he already “distance” himself from Wright?

    Or how about this scenario: 2 years from now, when the mushroom cloud begins to dissipate over Tel Aviv and the contrail is tracked back to Iran, will Obama simply say: “Well, apparently I seem to have misjudged this President Ahmadinejad; when he and I sat down at the US/Iran peace talks he seemed like such an even-keeled, reasonable man.”

    Since Barack isn’t about experience (as he clearly admits) then he MUST be all about superior judgment. So, this is the judgment that only sent his political and personal sensors reeling YEARS after knowing PRECISELY the nature of his Pastor Wright, he of the racist and America-hating nature? THAT good judgment of Barack Hussein Obama?

    I have said it before and I’ll say it again. The man with a small m is evil. Where did he come from, how did he get so many to shout for and follow him. Well I guess he sold his soul. It just dosen’t add up any other way. He is a danger to all of us and to the world. I can’t stand Hillary, but she is looking better every day, and old John has lost all credibility with some of his latest comments. Just an Old Soldier’s humble opinion

    Y’know OS, that thought has crossed my mind more than once. It’s a bit eerie. Well, MORE than just a bit…..
