Just when the Magic Negro wanted to be POTUS. He denounces all that he has believed in.

Right, Barry

If B.O. HUSSEIN was Noah, by the time the Rains stopped, Noah’s Ark would have been Empty with alot of drowned bodies around it.In fact I dare say B.O. HUSSEIN would be the Only Occupant left. B.O. will throw his own wife overboard if it got him what HE wanted.

His safest move, when it comes to selecting a new church, is to join The Reverend Leroy’s Church of What’s Happenin’ Now.

I always felt that Obama would have been smart to have "instigated" an incident a year ago (or more) using someone like Pfleger.

Agreed. I suppose no one thought Hillary would lose the nomination then, so nobody thought it would be necessary.

From CNN's brief story on Obama's resignation:

Pfleger is a Catholic priest at St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church on Chicago's southwest side. He is also a friend of Trinity's former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, from whom Obama distanced himself in April.

Notice how Pfleger is a friend of Wright but somehow is not a friend of Obama's for 20 years. Or that Obama himself said that his dream religious team would be Wright, Meeks and Pfleger.

The CNN article is sparse and contains no statements from the Obama team directly. Let's see which LMSM member actually has the desire to get a big scoop by directly asking the right questions.

Seems like Obama is a Day Late and a Dollar Short of making that extreme decision.

Nice Try Bambi Boy, but everyone knows you are a Muslim racist so it doesn't matter if you throw the church family under the bus now.

.. So now Obama are you headin to the Mosque now

So does this now mean we can not discuss his 20 plus years of radical indoctrination at the hands and err...feet of the Rev. Wright, Father Flamage and Calypso Lou Farrakhan?

You can’t resign from a church.......you aren’t an officer, just a member.

You can withdraw membership though.

One has to wonder why he doesn’t just talk with the members of that church and make them not be racists anymore...... like he might talk to Iran and convince them to not build nukes???

He should say he is staying with these sinners just like Jesus would have done and try to straighten them out. That would be fun to watch. He could be guest preacher every week until the election.

It’s transparent why he’s leaving the church now. The campaign can’t take the trouble the church is causing.

I wonder how long it'll be before the media's tripping over themselves polling the church-goers for their reaction....

Think about it... If it was the GOP, the reactions from church-goers would be priceless. THey'd be all over the place, asking anyone and everyone for their reactions... As it's HUSSEIN, they don't want images of church-goers saying he's playing politics OR criticizing him... The MSM is DESPICABLE.

“If I were a partitioner, and I had some damning video / audio / pictures of, say, Obama at the million man march,... But now, you can bet your sweet bippy I would try to shop it to the highest bidder.”

I thought about it, and yes, the parishioners at Obama’s church certainly could be accurately labeled “partitioners.”

Yep, he has to turn in his street creds. But, thanks to his dad, he can still be an authentic African socialist.

Here’s as good a guess as any...

Obama finally dissed Wright once and for all when Wright personally offended him by his comments that Obama was just a politician and was saying what he had to say. Also Wright made incendiary comments at the NPC when all the had to do was shut up and give Obama a break.

This priest and Otis Moss and Wright HAD to be in cahoots to bring Obama down by the priest pulling this latest stunt. Obama now realizes these people are out to stop him from becoming President. He has to know that the jumpers and hollerers in the pews are out to stop him, too.

Just like with Wright, Obama ditches these people when he gets angered by their treatment of HIM.

He didn’t care for 20 yrs about the terrible things that were said against all white people from that pulpit and celebrated by the members.

This was a political decision and it may have been a good one. Intrade just jumped up 5.6 cents for Obama upon the news and McCain down 4.7 cents.

To paraphrase the recent message of his Church that Obama is only NOW trying to disavow now (after 20 years):

"I want to know if you're honest enough to address the one who says, 'Don't hold me responsible for what my Church did.' But you have enjoyed the benefits of what your Church did. And unless you are ready to give up the benefits, throw away your marriage certificate, throw away your children's baptismal certificates, throw away all the money that's been put into your campaign by your Church's congregation that you willingly took and give up the VOTES of those in that Church that supported you for 20 years... UNLESS YOU'RE WILLING TO GIVE UP THE BENEFITS, THEN YOU MUST BE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT WAS DONE IN YOUR CHURCH BECAUSE YOU ARE THE BENEFICIARY OF THIS BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY CHURCH!"

Too little, too late, for Jesus 2.0, he had a chance to do this a long time back. This move looks like exactly what it is - cheap political expediency.

He's never going to shake this racist, hate-whitey church that he belonged to for 20 Years.

I don't accept it now from this lying SOS bigot.

Oprah left the church long ago. She saw it for what it was.

Obama surrounded himself with these people. He took Father Pfluglehorn to Iowa with him.

And all of his religious leaders of the past 20 years (including Pfluglehorn) are buddies of Louis Farrakhan and the MMM, er the Nation of Islam.

Screw Obama before he can screw America.

PS I can't wait to see video of Pfluglehorn impersonating BaRAQ OBAMa crying like a white woman. "Ahhh HAD to do it, Trinity..."

You’ve made a tremendous point.

This braggart is gonna change the nutjob leader of Iran just by sitting down and talking with him. He then won’t be our sworn enemy anymore.

But meanwhile, he has to run away from his own church because he can’t get them to see things his way and stop with all the hate whitey stuff.

He needs to sit down with his former buds and straighten THEM out. Then the Dem party. Then we’ll talk about a higher level position...

(Maybe)

Listening to the talking heads on CNN claiming that his making this announcement (especially today with the Michigan/Florida thing)was pure genius. That it puts an end to the whole thing and deprives Republicans of using this issue.

The rumored video of Michelle spouting off at Trinity must’ve gotten back to the Obama campaign.

Wonder if he’ll divorce her if it really exists and is aired in public.

After 20 years he turns his back on his "faith". I see that as a lack of character and spine in the face of adversity. What manner of linguine-spined behavior would he exhibit in the face of negotiations with enemies of the United States. My guess is that he would cave in that situation as well.

As time progresses, the real nature of B.O. is exposed for all to see.
