A Hillary Clinton aide has ratcheted up the anti-Barack Obama rhetoric over his ties to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, comparing the Chicago pastor to white supremacist David Duke.
Niall ODowd, a member of Hillarys finance committee, gave an interview to RTE Radio in Ireland saying its legitimate to raise questions about Obamas relationship with Rev. Wright, whose sermons have included anti-American declarations and suggestions of conspiracies against African-Americans.
Its interesting that Barack Obama sat in the pews while all this was going on, and never once in any of his books or anything else did he denounce Wright, ODowd said, adding: He worshipped the man.
In the interview, which was reported by the Web site TPM Election Central, ODowd also said:
I think the issue that the Clinton campaign has seized on is that Barack Obama never once raised his voice to his pastor and said, I think your language is quite extreme here, and I think your language is probably wrong.
Because lets turn this around. If this was David Duke and he was preaching and Hillary Clinton was in the pew, there would be outrage about this.
And there cant be this double standard. Barack Obama has used race where it suited him, but when it doesnt suit him he backs away from it.
and the best part is the—
DISCLAIMER: No live republicans were used in the making of this analogy.
I smell desperation.
Could this be the “Tonya Harding” getting underway?
I adore the Commander!
Finally! Calling a spade a spade. Now if they will just finish the analogy . . . his church is like the KKK.
Damn!This is really starting to get good.I need to buy more popcorn.
McCain’s campaign ads are just writing themselves. Too bad McNasty doesn’t have the guts to tell the truth about Dems.
Please pass the popcorn as “Operation Chaos” continues. This is getting better everyday.
A pretty apt comparison.
That is a fair comparison. Do you you think this experience may turn Hillary into a convert? They used to say that "a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged."
Hillary acts so high and mighty. People should turn right around and ask her why she didn’t leave Bill? She sets such double standards.
Now, vast numbers of Republicans cross over to vote to nominate Obama as a Democrat candidate.
No wonder David Duke is on their mind!
about time obama and his cronies were called for what they are
racists and the thick or ignorant people will still vote for this man
I can imagine how him, his wife and rev are laughing their heads off at just how many they have duped
Unlike ‘fake but accurate’ this is desperate but true!
There is nothing quite like a good bloodbath between Rats!!!
