Barack Obama Finally Sees Problems with Rev. Wright Speech … Divorce Because he Called him a Politician
“The person that I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago.”
After 20 years Barack Obama divorces Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Obama denounces Wright’s comments as the “he said, he said” battle continues. Some how Obama has had an epiphany that what Rev. Wright has been saying is wrong and hateful. Barack, where the hell have you been for the past 20 years? Wright said nothing different the other day at the National Press Club than he has said in the past. So what’s the difference? Is it because he called you a politician? Finally yesterday at a news conference Obama breaks with pastor Wright to stop the drama of race, values, patriotism and betrayal that has sabotaged his presidential candidacy. After all this time Obama decides to throw Wright under the bus, but alas, his head is too large to fit. What is that, if not political posturing?
“I have spent my entire adult life trying to bridge the gap between different kinds of people. That’s in my DNA, trying to promote mutual understanding to insist that we all share common hopes and common dreams as Americans and as human beings. That’s who I am, that’s what I believe, and that’s what this campaign has been about,” Obama said.
“I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened by the spectacle that we saw yesterday,” he said.
Obama also distanced himself from the man in a way he has been reluctant to in the past.
“The person that I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago,” he said. “His comments were not only divisive and destructive, but I believe that they end up giving comfort to those who prey on hate, and I believe that they do not portray accurately the perspective of the black church.”
“They certainly don’t portray accurately my values and beliefs,” he said.
“If Reverend Wright thinks that’s political posturing, as he put it, then he doesn’t know me very well and based on his remarks yesterday, I may not know him as well as I thought either.” (The Politico)

What is most telling about Obama’s actions are the following. Obama allowed Rev. Wright to attack America and that was OK. Obama sat back while seeing Rev. Wright and his church praise Louis Farrakhan. No one in their “Wright” mind thinks that in some 20 years that Obama could not have been exposed to Wright’s rantings. The only time that Obama actually takes a stand against Wright is when it was hurting him politically. This coming from the “candidate of change”.
That’s just it Obama … it was all about political posturing. As wrong as Wright is on his position, you sat by and did nothing. You sat idle in a pew for 20 years and accepted everything that Wright was saying knowing that he positioned you well politically.
There are so many fantastic posts on this story, here are just a few sure reads:
- The Gateway Pundit: Obama: “I Seek Daily to Imitate His Faith” …Until Today
- Michelle Malkin: What, pray tell, could Barack Obama possibly say now to undo the damage of his two decades of bad judgment about Jeremiah Wright?
- Hot Air: Obama shocked, shocked at Wright’s behavior (Video)
- Althouse: Did Obama “denounce Wright”?
Believe it or not, Reverend Wright is actually right about one thing. Barack Obama has done all of this because os political posturing. That is obvious. Why else would one sit back and say nothing while hate flowed from the pulpit? Either you agreed with it, or you had an agenda.
Hot Air states it best when it comes to the liberal media, “You can attack America or the military all you want (literally, in Bill Ayers’s case!), but if you attack Barack Obama’s electability.”
