Barack Obama … from the Candidate of Change to the Candidate of Change the Subject.
Barack Obama can no longer lay claim that he is the candidate of change and represents a difference from the atypical politician. All that went by the way side when Barack Obama failed in his speech on race. Obama tried to explain way away the issue of why he stayed in a church where the pastor preached hate and racism and showed such an amazing lack of judgement in not dealing with such a divisive issue sooner.
Obama’s speech on race fell flat, especially when one goes back and reads the excuses and comparisons that he used to explain away the Reverend Wright’s comments and his association. Read Frank Luntz breaks down of Obama’s speech HERE.
To compare what Geraldine Ferraro said to Wright’s over the top comments was ridiculous. As Frank Luntz said, “But there is a greater crime and a smaller crime. This is the difference between a mass murderer and someone who stole a pack of gum out of a five-and-dime store”. What bordered on disgusting was that Obama stated that he could not disown Wright or throw him under the bus because that would be like disowning the black community, “I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can disown my white grandmother, a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me …” Yes Obama had no problem throwing his white grandmother under the bus all but insinuating that some little old ladies private comments to her grandson were some how the same as the ones of Reverend Wright in the video below.

Distancing one’s self from a pastor’s hateful and anti-American comments while at the same time making excuses and pathetic comparisons is far from dealing with OBAMAGATE III and in many cases a death nail in the political aspirations of Obama. However one thing is for certain, Barack Obama can never again be called the anti-politician as his speech on race came far too late in the game and was nothing more than a typical politicians save your A$$ speech in the wake of Reverend Wright’s outrageous comments. Another thing became very evident regarding Obama … he lied and had spun the story and his knowledge of what Reverend Wright had said in the past. Why do such a thing? Because Obama is no Uniter or special saviour to America as the MSM would have you believe. Obama is just another politician that will lie, cheat and steal to get elected.
His initial reaction to the initial ABC News broadcast of Rev. Wright’s sermons denouncing the U.S. was that he had never heard his pastor of 20 years make any comments that were anti-U.S. until the tape was played on air.
But yesterday, he told a different story.
“Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes,” he said in his speech yesterday in Philadelphia.
Obama did not say what he heard that he considered “controversial,” and the campaign has yet to answer repeated requests for dates on which the senator attended Rev. Wright’s sermons over the last 20 years. (ABC News)
As Stop the ACLU states, its not just about Reverend Wright, “Hey Media: Lets Take a Look At Obama’s Other Radical Friends”. Wright is just the tip of the iceberg.
Barack Obama is now just another politician who is trying to spin a story that affects his political candidacy. Obama has claimed he was a man of all races. One really must question what is at the heart of Obama’s campaign. It appears that many are when one starts to look at the polls. The Gallup Poll shows that Hillary Clinton have moved in front of Barack Obama 49% to 42%. Since March 9, 2008 Clinton has gained 4 points while Obama has lost 7. Think the Obama camp is not troubled over the recent affiliation that Obama has with the Reverend Wright? A recent Rasmussen poll showed that 8% of Americans had a favorable opinion of Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
Seventy-three percent (73%) of voters say that Wright’s comments are racially divisive. That opinion is held by 77% of White voters and 58% of African-American voters. In addressing the issue, Obama warned against injecting race into the campaign .
Most voters, 56%, said Wright’s comments made them less likely to vote for Obama. That figure includes 44% of Democrats. Just 11% of voters say they are more likely to vote for Obama because of Wright’s comments.
The Rasmussen Poll also shows that Obama’s numbers are down drastically from 52% to 47% since Reverend Wright’s comments became a made for TV and You Tube movie. Get ready for a swing in the polls as America has been slapped in the face with a dose of reality. No liberal news media in bed with Obama can spin this one, although try as they may. The Reverend Wright’s comments are there for all to see and Barack Obama tries to explain to the American voting public that it was his good judgement to just sit by and do nothing.
Wait it gets even better for Team Obama. Just when Obama tries to get beyond the racist and hate filled words of Reverend Wright, along comes the New Black Panthers. Today Barack Obama received the endorsement of The New Black Panthers. The Obama camp was quick to reject the endorsement; however, it just makes Americans pause and ask more questions about Obama. As Michelle Malkin states maybe the “CHANGE” that Obama was so publically known for saying meant … Let’s Change the subject.”
