Obama says public tired of hearing about his former pastor

April 30th, 2008 . by TexasFred

WASHINGTON (AP) – Democrat Barack Obama and his wife said Thursday the public is tired of hearing about incendiary remarks by their former pastor, as they sought to put the controversy that has rocked his presidential campaign to rest.

“We hear time and time again voters are tired of this,� Michelle Obama said in an interview the couple gave to NBC’s “Today� show.

“They don’t want to hear about this division, they want to know what are we going to do to move beyond these issues,� she said. “And what made me feel proud of Barack in this situation is that he is trying to move us as a nation beyond these conversations that divide.�

Barack Obama said he initially tried to give the Rev. Jeremiah Wright the benefit of the doubt when films clips first surfaced on the Internet of fiery sermons the pastor gave at their Chicago church – a series of haranguing declarations from the pulpit in which he damned the United States for racial oppression and accusing the government of deliberately spreading the HIV virus to harm black people.

“When the first snippets came out, I thought it was important to give him the benefit of the doubt because if I had wanted to be politically expedient I would have distanced myself and denounced him right away, right? That would have been the easy thing to do,� said Obama. This week he denounced Wright’s comments as “giving comfort to those who prey on hate.�

Obama says public tired of hearing about his former pastor

Barack Hussein Obama and his wife are BOTH lying, pandering, sniveling, Muslim wannabe lovers of Islam and hate this United States of America, and in my heart I fully believe that he and his wife will do everything in their power to give this nation over to Islam IF he is allowed to ascend to the White House…

The public isn’t tired of hearing about Rev. Wright, Obama and company are tired of hearing about Rev. Wright, and that is the truth if ever it was spoken, Jeremiah Wright has cast a pall over the Obama campaign, he has brought attention to Obama that he and his supporters do NOT want…

Jeremiah Wright, the racist, moonbat that he is, has actually done ALL of us a HUGE favor by speaking his revealing diatribes…

Obama was going to “give him the benefit of the doubt� (Wright) but now says he has distanced himself from Wright because his comments are, “giving comfort to those who prey on hate.�…

Mr. Obama, your Jeremiah Wright may well be doing exactly that, but in doing so he has exposed YOU as one of his disciples, albeit one that would throw him under the bus once you determined that he IS hurting your campaign…

And not trying to compare Wright to Jesus Christ, not in any way, but Obama does make me think of Judas Iscariot, Obama followed this hate spewing ‘reverend’ for over 20 years and claims to have never known that any of this was in his heart until it threatens his campaign?? Did Wright suddenly change his style of preaching?? Did his true self only come out recently??

Barack Hussein Obama is a liar and a hypocrite, and this will NOT be the last time those words are seen in print, Obama had better get used to it, this battle has only begun, and the ammunition is plentiful, thank you Rev. Jeremiah Wright, thank you for giving us that ammunition…

    I would appreciate it if you quit bad mouthing the next president of these united states. Thanks to GWB and the Republican faithful we are going to be stuck with either a racist black man that hates the country or another Clinton who well lets face it, will have sex with it in the simplest of terms…..

    So from here on out I think we should assume the position…BOHICA.

    Racist Wright has managed, by alternate Chaos Theory, to do what no one prior has accomplished with Teflon Obama. And that’s to not only reveal the racist, socialist, hating, denigrating, arrogant, ethnocentic, demogogic, divisive, ungrateful, lying, race-baiting, victimological nature of many black churches and so-called pastors but the nature of those who would associate with those institutions or claim them as their own. Obama included.

    Michelle Obama reminds me of “Pastor” Wright and vice-versa: both are attention whores, both are upper financial class, living off the fat of others like remoras and hagfish, quick to condemn for perceived slights in the past, excoriating this country yet oh-so-willing, at the end of the day, to drive their Mercedes to their 4,000+ sq. ft. home NOT IN THE MIDST OF BLACK POVERTY but with cable, satellite, DSL, plasma TVs, their leather couches, their elitist dinner reservations. You think either one gets their hair styled “in the hood”?

    And oh: both hate their country in their vision of false desperation and repression because, quite frankly, it sells to STUPID people, black, white, teal or burnt umber.

    Hussein Obama is the “inside” man for the so-called radical Muslims. He hates this country and all it stands for. He is a racist, nor does he honor the flag and I’m sure American soldiers sicken him. If this man becomes president, our country will be in serious trouble!

    I remember a few weeks ago watching a “News” report from Iraq where the reporter interviewed a group of Iraqi soldiers about which presidential candidate they wanted to win. Most wanted Obama, a few wanted Clinton. Then the reporter very somberly turned to the camera and reported that they “wanted to be fair” but that not a single Iraqi soldier in that unit was for McCain. I just don’t believe that.

    I think BHO is clueless. He thought he had the Democratic nomination sewed up – and Wright screwed him. Hillary thought she had it sewed up and Barack screwed her. For the Democrats, it’s a lose-lose situation. McCain can beat either one of them.
