Well, we knew the liberal MSM would come out in favor of their chosen one, and they didn't disappoint:
There are moments increasingly rare in risk-abhorrent modern campaigns when politicians are called upon to bare their fundamental beliefs. In the best of these moments, the speaker does not just salve the current political wound, but also illuminates larger, troubling issues that the nation is wrestling with.
Inaugural addresses by Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt come to mind, as does John F. Kennedys 1960 speech on religion, with its enduring vision of the separation between church and state. Senator Barack Obama, who has not faced such tests of character this year, faced one on Tuesday. It is hard to imagine how he could have handled it better
[...]There have been times when we wondered what Mr. Obama meant when he talked about rising above traditional divides. This was not such a moment.
[...]Mr. Obamas eloquent speech should end the debate over his ties to Mr. Wright since there is nothing to suggest that he would carry religion into government.
Whoakay then. End the debate? You just can't make this stuff up.
Not sure which speech those writers at the NYT's watched but the one I watched bore no similarity to the one they're describing. To me the whole damn thing sounded like an admittance of the fact that Wright is a angry black man, his anger is justifiable, and that was one of the reasons he sought him out as a mentor anyways because there IS injustice in this country towards the black race and Obama is the man to fix it.
Fix it by acknowledging it and then ensuring that the poor and downtrodden become even more dependent on the Government.

Well, what crawls up the leg must come down the leg.
He’s an eloquent liar.
Obama = God Damn America. Never forget.
I certainly hope Obama can be defeated after he listed Reaganism, welfare reform, crime fighting, and opposition to affirmative action as the racist results of capitalism.
The speech was shameful. The backstab of his grandmother—who helped raise him when his low-life bigamist father left him, and saying that white racism was the basis of the Reagan coalition, were absolutely despicable.
Mr. Obamas Profile in Courage (The New York Times aka Monica)
He is a pile of it Some one compared it to Lincolns address
The speech sounded good to me.... at first...then reality set in.
Fox News and the bloggers are still drop kicking him. His glow is fading.
No one "Bought" Shiat today from Nobamma's speech. And NO Nobamma, I've never heard any "Priest, or Rabbi or Minister" talk that crazy shiat that Rev Wrong has blurted-out.
Jus saw some Obama vids on youtube. I post here often and I understand I am preaching to the choir, but the posts on youtube are amazing. Nearly everyone is trashing this guy. As this is a younger crowd, I think he may have lost a great part of the under 25 crowd.
It shows how WORDS - the right words - can make people accept anything, no matter how egregious, cruel, or offensive.
And they think they've evolved from Germany of 1944.
His left handed signature with marking pen looked a lot like the curvy script the islamics like to use.
Then I watched it on a YouTube video, and saw his head and eyes going back and forth, from the right teleprompter to the left teleprompter, and he looked like a shallow young man doing an good job of reading a speech. He had the voice talents of a decent actor, but not the facial expressions or body language.
... and those oversized American Flags, dominating his weak visual presence, looked rather out of place, as fake symbolism. If flags have feelings, they were whispering to each other, behind Obama's back, "... and what did you do wrong to get stuck on this darned job?"
Chances are, the NYT editorial would have been nearly identical had BHO simply blown his nose.
He sound like a liberal democrat.
Can you characterize what they saw that they don't like?
I'll send off an email to my 20 year old son in college, who has been fond of Obama (after Ron Paul dropped out) and ask him what he thinks of this speech. I doubt my son will watch very much of the speech; it exceeds his 2 minute attention span for things political (PC games and girls earn a longer attention span), but he might have an interesting reaction.
