I don’t know. You need to keep watching threads and do Google searches I guess.

The issue is taking something that is news— that Rev. Wright is a racist nutburger— and making up things beyond that about Obama being in attendance at this sermon.

Well that was a well-researched response. I will consider this the next time I hear the Anthem sung. I grew up in the town (Frederick, MD) famous in part for raising and burying the composer of the Star-Spangled Banner, and still I never knew it was protocol specified in U.S. Code.

Correction: Not the composer of the song, but the author of the lyrics.

I think the author addressed you directly this morning on the matter of that particular sermon. But if it’s that important for you to continue to call him liar and insist that he’s making it up, knock yourself out.

Would a white candidate ever survive being linked with a race-baiting, anti-American, anti-Israel pastor? Would a white candidate survive writing about how to talk to black Americans as "tactics" or "tricks"? Does anyone believe that this kind of race-baiting and shakedown artist schtick, pushing white guilt buttons, is appropriate for an American presidential election in 2008 America?

Obama and his wife are the pampered beneficiaries of affirmative action at Ivy League colleges. They chose to associate themselves with a race-baiting demagogue for a pastor. The presidential race is being drawn into the strange, confused world of Obama's search for a racial identity and his dysfunctional family background. This is not where the country needs to go in 2008 America. We don't need to be "healed" by Obama. We don't need lectures on race and white guilt. And we don't need the weird cult of the Obamamaniacs.

We are in a war and a recession with a tumbling dollar and economic uncertainty. This isn't the time for a wild racial U-turn down the memory lane of the pre-civil rights South, driven by a confused Harvard graduate who imagines himself as the new Martin Luther King, adding fake quavering and trills to his voice in highly emotional, quasi-religious speeches. If he and his wife need "healing" they should consult a shrink.

“I don’t place my hand over my heart for the Star Spangled Banner.”

Most people do unless they are protesting against the US for whatever reason. Especially if they are actually at the event as opposed to watching it on TV. You are also supposed to remove hats and if in the armed forces, salute. Why don’t you?

Why don’t you?

I blame it all on my grammar school. See post #410 for my explanation.
