Preacher, Politician


The idea that the Bill Moyers interview of Rev. Jeremiah Wright is somehow bad for Obama is ridiculous.

It is a carefully crafted PR campaign to tame Rev. Wright, make him appear harmless, and get him out of Obama's way before the convention.


The PBS television interview hung over Obama, the front-runner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, as he campaigned Saturday in Indiana, trying to bounce back from a defeat in Tuesday's Pennsylvania primary.

Being the front-runnner, why would the interview hang over him? Why would a defeat in Pennsylvania disturb him? What he probably finds most disturbing is that people in Pennsylvania, and elsewhere, whom he pissed off with his "bitter" comments about guns and religion, are at least as smart as he is, and know when they have been insulted. His defeat in Pennsylvania was likely due to crossover voting by conservatives as a strategy to keep Hitlery in the race, and the Democrat party in chaos.

Race, race, race. The Democrats and the liberal media love to beat the race drum. Rev. Wright loves race-baiting. He says that his comments were taken out of context:
"To put an element of fear and hatred and to stir up the anxiety of Americans who still don't know the African-American church, know nothing about the prophetic theology of the African-American experience, who don't even know how we got a black church," the Rev. Jeremiah Wright said Friday night.

The party of racial equality and diversity loves equality and diversity as long as it means their candidate gets elected. To wit, the U.S. Senate race of 2006 in Maryland. In April 2005 the Baltimore Sun announced the results of a poll it conducted, stating that Michael Steele (black, Republican) would run in a statistical dead heat against either former NAACP head Kweisi Mfume (black, Democrat) or Representative Ben Cardin (white, Democrat) of Baltimore county. Cardin was brought in by the Democrat party to run against Mfume. Cardin went on to beat Steele, and denied the seat to what would have been Maryland's first black Senator.

Obviously, Clinton, Inc. would not allow anyone, black or white, to defeat Hitlery if it was within their power. And powerful they are. Much of their machine remains in the Democrat party hierarchy.

The worst of all this is that no matter who gets to be President of the United States, it will be a dopey, non-conservative Senator with a desire to cement his own power at the expense of freedom.
