Campaign disses Obama's pastor (what are the odds this is all pure political theater?)
Chicago Tribune ^ | March 6, 2007

Posted on 04/29/2008 6:34:41 PM PDT by GodGunsGuts

When Barack Obama met Rev. Jeremiah Wright in 1985, the pastor warned the young community organizer that he might want to distance himself from such a rabble-rouser. Obama didn't listen. Until now.

If you asked me, this is all planned and choreographed. As referenced above, Rev. Wright long ago gave B. Hussein Obama the green light to distance himself or otherwise “throw him under the bus” should it ever become necessary. This is pure theater designed to immunize B. Hussein Obama in the general, when the temperature will most assuredly be turned up by conservative 527-types (as opposed to "reluctant" RINOs like McCain).

I don't think Wright's sacrificing himself. Or at least, I think he's getting more of a sacrificing than he bargained for. My favorite writer said this.

exactly , it was staged series of events meant to get Obama black drones fired up in NC and Ind ! Now Obama can say I have put the issue to rest. His boyfriend Chrissie at MSDNC is already parroting the new Obama talking points.

LAWTON: Wright says he warned Obama at the beginning of his career that their relationship could have negative ramifications.

Rev. WRIGHT: They're going to associate your name with mine, and that could be detrimental, I told him back then. It holds just as true, even more so, now.

--------

Mr. Wright, who has long prided himself on criticizing the establishment, said he knew that he may not play well in Mr. Obama’s audition for the ultimate establishment job.

“If Barack gets past the primary, he might have to publicly distance himself from me,” Mr. Wright said with a shrug. “I said it to Barack personally, and he said yeah, that might have to happen.”

You bet it is. What a con job. All of a sudden, after twenty years, after letting his children listen to this hate-monger, Obama is angry with Wright? Sure.

The only way I'll believe this hasn't been planned, that Wright and Obama are really at odds, is if Wright comes out with a bombshell about Obama that further damages his campaign. Otherwise, I smell scummy political theater.

It may very well be political theatre but I am trying to think of the target audience. It would have to be someone who was for Obama initially, then came the Wright scandal and they decided against Obama, now with this theatre going on are saying “hmmmmm, I guess Obama is ok after all he doesn’t really go for that Wright stuff.

This then would be the moron vote he is going after.

Totally agree ... it’s all staged.
Action - take one didn’t work last month with the race speech ... he lost Penn primary as a result.
Sooooo, or whoops, that didn’t work ... let’s see about
Action - take two have wright go out and make wonkie speech, then obama come out and really disown this time.

People wake up ... a 3 year old should see straight thru obama/wright’s tactics ... are their followers that stupid?
God help us if this man makes it to the White House.

It's all for show. He knows he screwed up before and is using this opportunity to make up for his poor judgment before. He saw NOTHING wrong in what Wright said for over 20 years and he's just saying the same things now that he did before, so I don't believe him now.

I'm more interested to know if his angry, bitter, racist wife has blasted Wright. IF she did, it would be easier to believe Barack! She's such an opiniated bwitch that she would already have trounced on Wright by now. Have any of you heard from the ice princess?

The media will twist itself into a pretzel trying to cover up and make excuses for this clown. Wright's words were not taken out of context, Berry was a young moslum, his church hates white people and Berry knew damn well what Wright believed in. Four years from now the same dupes in the media will be making excuses for a presidential candidate who was a member of Al Quada for 20 years.

Try to imagine what will happen when the press begins asking B. Hussein Obama questions regarding the following articles/interviews!!!:

“When Barack Obama met Rev. Jeremiah Wright in 1985, the pastor warned the young community organizer that he might want to distance himself from such a rabble-rouser. Obama didn’t listen. Until now.”

http://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/religion_theseeker/2007/03/hallelujah_bara.html

I agree. Well planned and done to have everyone LOVE Obama again and now he can say he is done with Wright. We all know that if Obama happened to become President that Wright would be brought back in the fold to be Obama’s most important and trusted advisor. Obama and Wright are very close and obviously have the same beliefs and core values.

It’s a 3-ring circus and Bill is the ringmaster. Hillary emerges from Barack’s colorful foilage to accept the nomination after picking Barack as a running mate. The brain dead left explodes euphoric. The propagandist press pees their pants. They’ve succeeded in vetting each other and imprinting their name brand on the unsuspecting electorate. Morons and dead people come out of their graves to jump on the time-is-running-out bandwagon. 1/2 /conspiracy theory...1/2 /sarcasm.

The crypto-muslim Obama with the radical ex muslim militant black nationalist Wright.

Obama’s pastor Jeremiah Wright: Former Muslim April 07th 2008

A reader from Free Republic has dug up an old article last year (March 07) From TNR about Obama. It was written by Ryan Lizza, Senior editor at The New Republic.

It’s a biographical piece, but in the article, it explicitly states that Jeremiah Wright is a former Muslim.

From Wright and others, Obama learned that part of his problem as an organizer was that he was trying to build a confederation of churches but wasn’t showing up in the pews on Sunday. When pastors asked him the inevitable questions about his own spiritual life, Obama would duck them uncomfortably. A Reverend Philips put the problem to him squarely when he learned that Obama didn’t attend services. “It might help your mission if you had a church home,” he told Obama. “It doesn’t matter where, really. What you’re asking from pastors requires us to set aside some of our more priestly concerns in favor of prophesy. That requires a good deal of faith on our part. It makes us want to know just where you’re getting yours from.”

After many lectures like this, Obama decided to take a second look at Wright’s church. Older pastors warned him that Trinity was for “Buppies”–black urban professionals–and didn’t have enough street cred. But Wright was a former Muslim and black nationalist who had studied at Howard and Chicago, and Trinity’s guiding principles–what the church calls the “Black Value System”–included a “Disavowal of the Pursuit of Middleclassness.’”

The crosscurrents appealed to Obama. He came to believe that the church could not only compensate for the limitations of Alinsky-style organizing but could help answer the nagging identity problem he had come to Chicago to solve. “It was a powerful program, this cultural community,” he wrote, “one more pliant than simple nationalism, more sustaining than my own brand of organizing.”

As a result, over the years, Wright became not only Obama’s pastor, but his mentor. The title of Obama’s recent book, The Audacity of Hope, is based on a sermon by Wright. (It’s worth noting, however, that, while Obama’s book is a coolheaded appeal for common ground in an age of political polarization, Wright’s sermon, “The Audacity to Hope,” is a fiery jeremiad about persevering in a world of nuclear arms and racial inequality.) Wright is one of the first people Obama thanked after his Senate victory in 2004, and he recently name-checked Wright in his speech to civil rights leaders in Selma, Alabama.

So the question is, why hasn’t anyone mentioned the fact that he’s a former Muslim? Could this be why Obama’s church posted a Hamas manifesto in the Trinity Church program last year? It obviously explains Wright’s affinity with Louis Farrakhan. It also explains more why Rev. Wright got his Masters degree in “Islam in West Africa”

This is just another blow to the Obama campaign. The American people are not ready to hand the reins to someone who’s associations are beyond sketchy.

If by theatre, you mean the entire thing with Wright going out there this weekend, then Obama dissing him, I don’t think so.

The big immediate question to ask is how this affects Indiana (it’s assumed he will crush her in NC).

First, the black vote: Obama has 97% of the black male vote and 93% of the black female vote, but that doesn’t mean he’d be willing to sacrifice any of them—especially after losing PA by just under 10%. The black vote is also crucial in Indiana. Maybe he thinks he can do no wrong with the black community. So we can assume that with the black community, dissing Wright is a wash or, at worst, perhaps he loses 5% of the black vote (which presumably will stay home in IN and NC rather than go with Hillary).

The real issue is whether he gains any points with white working class voters. He absolutely needs these in order to take Hillary in Indiana. I don’t see how he does this on the Wright thing because too many of these voters are already convinced Obama is a fake and they are able to see that his condemnation is too over the top to be believable given the known context of the Obama-Wright relationship over 20 years (”the lady doth protest too much, methinks”).

I personally think Wright was a loose cannon who saw an opportunity to get on the national stage. I am convinced that he did what he did this past weekend in order to bring converts to the chruch and sell DVDs—he couldn’t care less about Obama’s political aspirations and besides, an Obama loss just feeds into his conspiracy theories.

Obama had to do the Henry V thing on Wright at this point, because Wright was just too over the top and too high profile. Most annoying to Obama (and I take his word on this), was Wright’s saying that Obama’s previous dissing of Wright was just political expediency. I really do think Obama was pissed about that one in particular. No; this was genuine damage control—too little too late, perhaps, but I don’t think Obama planned it. The irony is that he was done in by a radical black preacher.

That said, I don’t buy the idea that Obama is suddenly shocked to find out that he’s been a member of a Black Liberation church, however, so in that sense I’d agree that that part of his press conference is just theater.

If you listen to what Wright really said during his presser...he essentially said, Obama’s message is my message. He referred to his own “We can do it” sermon (which Wright said several times during his Press Club speech), and said...ah yes, where have we heard that and then repeated Obama’s campaign slogan “YES WE CAN”. That is a point I believe is being missed in the coverage thus far.

Your half sarcastic theory is closer to the truth than you realize.

The “Kumbaya” moment at the convention is coming. A Rodman/Hussein ticket is the Dems slavation and will be hailed by all as the Solomonic solution. All will wax euphoric at the wisdom of it all.

McCain will be flattened by the woman/minority ticket steamroller.

If Hillary is the nominee, Hillary wins—McCain will not fight her and will be seen as a crochety out of touch old meanie. Hillary will pour on the waterworks at will and make McCain look like the fool he already is.

If Obama is the nominee, McCain has a shot against him if he will go to the mat and reveal how extremist Obama is and how little experience Obama has. So far, no evidence that McLoser has that fire in the belly. What is undisputed is that McQueeg will torpedo fellow Republicans and the Conservatives rather than fire in the general direction of the enemy.

If it is Hillary/Obama, the Dems save their party from self-immolation. The Super Delegates don’t have to choose—that would take political courage, of which they have none. There is peace in our time in Demland. McCain will find himself being broadsided by both of them non-stop. The press, which is in the tank for the Dems anyway, will gear up to do their part. As you say, the dead will rise up and present IDs to vote early and often once the Dems unleash their well honed voter fraud strategies, especially in the inner cities, which they control already.

As long as Hillary is on top this time, she cares not who the VP is. Of all the Dems, Obama is the only running mate that will bring her votes. Obama will be sat down, and made to understand that he will have his shot in eight years; the VP experience will be good for him, and the Dems will never forget his sacrifice to help take back the White House and the levers of government power. He is only 46—he has time, they will say.

McLame will be too busy yelling at those of us who realize that the future of this country is at stake and want to take on Hill/Bama with a full frontal assault, to focus on winning in November.

Then all of the elites on both sides of the aisle will get what they want.

Political theater? We all have a front row seat.

I heard Obama’s speech this afternoon and it was a failure, in my opinion. He tried to distance himself from Wright but left unanswered several very important questions: Why wasn’t Wright rejected years before this? Was Obama asleep in the pews for 20 years? The title for his book was taken from one of Wright’s sermons. Wright married him and Michelle and baptized their children. In other words, this was NO casual and perfunctory relationship. He donated about $26,000 to the church. Further, Obama’s own account of their relationship has changed three times. He couldn’t even spin his way out of why he cancelled Wright’s appointment to his campaign staff. I could go on but Obama was a day late and a dollar short. The most enjoyable thing, however, was watching the liberal MSM who are in the tank for him try to rehabilitate their “messiah.” That usually makes me a little angry but I had to laugh this time. They were so desperate and pathetic in their failed efforts I couldn’t help it!

“If you asked me, this is all planned and choreographed...”

My belief exactly!

I think the last words B. Hussein Obama and Rev. Wright said to each other before Obama walked up to the microphone to make the remarks today was, “See you in the White House!”

And should, God forbid, Obama become president, Rev. Wright would be in the White House as Obama’s adviser before you could say Flip-flop!

Heck no.

The biggest giveaway is that Obama keeps referring to that racist jerk Farrakhan as "Reverend Farrakhan." Yet, the LIAR always refers to President Bush by "George Bush," and he always has this flippant tone too.

Never, ever have I heard Obama refer to President Bush by his official name. But, I hear him refer to that racist monster Louis Farrakhan as "Reverend Farrakhan" all the freaking time.

Sorry, Obama. I still refuse to drink your Flavor Aid.

My Theory: An Obama Presidency is Rev Wrights worst nightmare. How can he continue to spew forth racially centered hate filled anti-American paranoia...when a Black Man sets in the White House.

Wright would be out of business and discredited. His reason for being would cease. His over-the-top melodramatic carnival-esque sermon-rants would sound hollow. How could he possibly carry on in the fashion to which he is accustomed, when his protege is President.

Unless Pres BO chooses to feed their racial vendettas from the Presidency, all the racial provocateurs will suddenly be left without a foil.

Rev Wrong-Wright as well as other mainstream race hustlers would be significantly diminished.

I see that bombshell in the NOI bodyguards Wright is reported to be using. Obama cannot overcome that. He can brush off having to “denounce” his former pastor and his fans will not waiver.

Independents and even some Dems will not likely forget the sight of Farrakhan’s goons in every picture of Wright.

Just my opinion. ...
