Skip to comments.LIVE THREAD - Under Pressure, Obama Prepares for Race and Unity Speech
Posted on 03/18/2008 6:12:13 AM PDT by SE Mom
Barack Obama is preparing to deliver a major address Tuesday on race, politics and unifying the country after being hounded by questions about his relationship to a pastor whose sermons have been laced with anti-American invective.
In a speech whose religious significance could compare to one given in December by former GOP presidential hopeful and Mormon Mitt Romney, Obama may be forced to explain the philosophy of the 8,000-strong Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, where the Democratic presidential candidate has been a congregant for 20 years.
In announcing the morning address, to be delivered in Philadelphia, Obama would not say specifically what he will discuss, but suggested he wants to cool down the atmosphere after incendiary remarks by his pastor, retired Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., blanketed the airwaves over the past week.

spread this around - the “dumb blond” sounds off
LOL - it's a black thing...you wouldn't understand
How many morons does it take to mic check. Shouldn;t they have done this BEFORE 10:15.
Maybe it will give Barry enough time to rewrite that nonsense
From what I either read or heard from pundits, it has a large white congregation which baffles me.
Of course it does........This is the "baby" of the Democratic party!
I think it was a good move. If he disowned him, he would be seen as a sellout by the black community.
Maybe he’ll use the old “Some of my best friends (soft-money contributors, political hacks, stupid liberal Chicago Jew who runs my campaign, etc.) are white” line.
That’ll bring down the house. And then he’ll have the wife, the kids, and their dog, Checkers, come out on the stage.
HazMat situation as Charlotte NC airport involving Airbus.
Not much else is known.
“When was the last time you saw a rock star begin his show on time?”
He’s allowing his fans to get a good buzz on before the show starts.
Have to admit, good speech in the context of a liberal dem candidate. This may insulate him.
Great post. And every word the truth.
Even the CNN Newsbabe, Suzanne Malveaux, has made note of the eight US flag backdrop. She said "everything about this is deliberate."
I guess Barack Hussein Obama thinks he can win over the people he and his racist pastor hate, by draping himself in the US flag.
Mic check is staged. It is not real, they are stalling!!!!!
One of the the talk-newsies said yesterday that she was a former member of that church, but she left a while previous because she did not agree with what was being taught/preached there.
Interesting. Apparently Oprah has good judgement, but Barry - who hopes to be Commander in Chief of the United States - doesn't.
“Obviously, it has been delayed a few minutes” —— It’s nearly 1/2 hour. Since when is 30 minutes a few?
For one thing, he could have spoken up sometime during the last 20 years to mention that he disagrees with Wright's hate-laced racial haranges.
