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.

It looks that way, doesn’t it? Lots of wink-wink, nod-nod going on..
He deserves to be in this spot, if he thinks he can float thru to the WH Obama is deluded as well as his supporters.
Someone needs to ask BHO about the FALN and the TUCC.
There is a lot more coming that will have a bearing on BHO’s judgement besides Wright’s hate sermons.
Just read BHO’s first book.
Reading CNN online(while holding my nose), it appears that Obama has consulted with up to 50 black church leaders over the weekend for help with his speech.
I’m not sure what Sista Soulja means although I’ve seen it referred to on other Freeper threads.
I will, however, take this opportunity to make my most profound announcement. Bearing in mind here that I am more accurate in my prognostications than, say, Dick Morris.
I hereby declare Barack Hussein Obama UNELECTABLE.
Which is not to say that he couldn’t win the Dem primary but I have my doubts on even that. But there is no way, Jose, nada, zero, zip...that Obama will EVER be elected this country’s president.
Yes I know it’s a daring prediction but remember again, I am way better than Dick Morris in my predictions, you should be impressed.
The people in this country are simply not going to elect a man our president who has associated with a church of such vehemence and rancor. Those sound and sight bytes are killers. Remembering that in cinematic America, these are not wordy transcripts released on the un-reading populace. These are videos, loud and brutal, that we see with our collective lying eyes and lying ears.
The ladies at the beauty parlor will remove the hairdryers and take notice. Not even the beauty of Barack’s speech can chase this away. Add to it the little “clues” he’s dropped along the way like ET’s Reesie’s Piecies. Like his refusal to wear an American flag lapel pin. Like that infamous pic without his hand over his heart, something that the American public might have overlooked on its own but coupled with the fine and lovable Reverund Wright...heh.
Then there’s the personable Michele Obama who hasn’t been proud of her country until she’s almost in her mid-40’s and her constant harangue that it is US who are damn mean...
....the unions across the fruited plains might support the Dems but those unions are composed of ordinary folks who don’t like knowing that serreptiously there’s a sub-culture of so-called black “Christians” who beat white people up to hell and back for alleged causasion racism while shouting this fire and brimstone hatred from the pulpits. A lot of white folk in this country were not aware such a sub-culture existed but, now they do.
Yon average middle class American is not going to elect a man so filled with hate for this country as its President. Not so long as white people are the majority and as of this date, we still are.
I’ll end with the thought that those alleged “super-delegates” that the Dems so adore supposedly place their votes on the candidate’s “electability”.
It’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
And don’t forget my track record versus Dick Morris.
I haven’t read either of his books- but here’s something interesting from this morning:
In before the speech.
Thanks SE Mom for the thread.
No speech can dig Obama out of the racist hole he’s been living in for most of his adult life. Pastor Wright is a hate-mongering racist, and he was Obama’s spiritual advisor, what else does anyone need to know?
So I must add a needed caveat.
I have heard plenty of African-Americans over the past few days disavow Reverund Wright’s vitriol and I have been in a few majority black churchs in my life. Not often, but a few.
I never saw such a spectacle as Rev. Wright but my shocked eyes can’t get over the sight of that HAPPY CONGREGATION. Rev Wright could well be the batty uncle in the attic but he sure has a lot of supporters.
Including Barack Obama which he can’t weasle out of.
These are the real issues which should decide this campaign. And they are not religious/racial issues—for war and hunger and ignorance and despair know no religious/racial barriers.
But because I am a Catholic,/black man and no Catholic/black man has ever been elected President, the real issues in this campaign have been obscured—perhaps deliberately, in some quarters less responsible than this. So it is apparently necessary for me to state once again—not what kind of church I believe in, for that should be important only to me—but what kind of America I believe in.
I won’t be watching it as I cannot stand to see someone tell lies.
Tanks for the PING!
Al Sharpton now on FOX saying he’s starting to question the political motivation ..why is this in the news cycle so long...
As usual- it’s damned hard to understand EXACTLY what Sharpton is saying- but it SOUNDS like he’s blaming Hillary...
--Obama will be the last African-American to run for president in the US.
--There will be no formal democrat convention this year.
I’m watching Sharpton. Talk about your verbal dance.
But it does seem that he’s casting aspersions on Hillary.
“I wont be watching it as I cannot stand to see someone tell lies.”
Also, it is hard to explain why that televion has a big hole in its screen to the shrieking spouse.
Did he really say?
