Obama said he and his wife, Michelle, had notified the church in a letter Friday that they were withdrawing as members of Trinity, in part because of a cultural and a stylistic gap.

I watched him talk about quitting his church, and I have to say that was the most uncomfortable new conference I have ever seen, the media continued to ask him more uncomfortable questions... pathetic scene
Probably more wishful thinking than anything else ... nothing short of that dead-girl-live-boy thing will tank this guy's candidacy, and I'm not exactly sure that would do it either. He is as teflon as anything we've ever witnessed in politics.
It’s a little late for him to try and rip that particular bandaid off quickly...
His base will not be amused...
Like Atillio to Alito.
Well if I may paraphrase Dirty Harry, I'm all broken up about that man's feelings.
It's where the belly-roll midriff shows on a tubby girl wearing lowrider jeans.
He can't bring himself to admit that he's been attending a racist church for 20 years. The press should, but won't, ask him just when and how he discovered thts gap in culture and style.
You and I think alike, Mr. Wil.
“Better late than never.”
20 years is never. Barrack is toast.
Thanks, I will catch up on that one tomorrow.
Really? I learn something new everyday.
You gotta learn rat/speak.
Dammit. I'm going to have to close my eyes to go to sleep tonight. Don't leave me with that image.
I'll make coffee. Strong coffee.
I still think an October Surprise is lurking out there. And it may be Billary who deliver it...
Don't underestimate white guilt! It awards literary prizes to semi-literates, applauds lousy comediands and musicians, will elect O'Bambino.
Satan to Top Minion:
“We won’t make a decision on him until after January”.
This won’t fool anyone. Not the Hillary supporters and not the conservatives and I hope, not the great unwashed “moderates” who only pay attention to politics for about a month every 4 years.
So... Obama choose churches for "cultural and stylistic" reasons.
Add to that, Obama kept saying that his daughters were baptized at TRinity, but was HE ever baptized? If you're not willing to accept public identification with Christ through baptism, to what extent is it possible to call yourself "Christian?" I'm not saying it's impossible, but it shows a lack of commitment, to say the least.
“We probably wont make any firm decision on this until January, when we know what our lives are going to be like.
What!? Does Barack Obama have some doubts where he and Michelle will be? I would have thought they would be picking out churches near the White House by now. They would probably feel comfortable with the Foundry Methodist Church-Oh wait that may have been the Clinton’s Church.
And there's the rub...how can somebody belong to and financially support such a church for over twenty years if it indeed conflicts with his "long-held views, statements, and principles."
Still hedging. .....It's not the content of what Reverend Wright said, it's the style he used. .....Give me a break!!
Stand here by me, Master Robert Shallow; I will
make the king do you grace: I will leer upon him as
a’ comes by; and do but mark the countenance that he
will give me.
God bless thy lungs, good knight.
Come here, Pistol; stand behind me. O, if I had had
time to have made new liveries, I would have
bestowed the thousand pound I borrowed of you. But
‘tis no matter; this poor show doth better: this
doth infer the zeal I had to see him.
It doth so.
It shows my earnestness of affection,—
It doth so.
It doth, it doth, it doth.
As it were, to ride day and night; and not to
deliberate, not to remember, not to have patience
to shift me,—
It is best, certain.
But to stand stained with travel, and sweating with
desire to see him; thinking of nothing else,
putting all affairs else in oblivion, as if there
were nothing else to be done but to see him.
‘Tis ‘semper idem,’ for ‘obsque hoc nihil est:’
‘tis all in every part.
‘Tis so, indeed.
My knight, I will inflame thy noble liver,
And make thee rage.
Thy Doll, and Helen of thy noble thoughts,
Is in base durance and contagious prison;
By most mechanical and dirty hand:
Rouse up revenge from ebon den with fell
For Doll is in. Pistol speaks nought but truth.
I will deliver her.
Shouts within, and the trumpets sound
There roar’d the sea, and trumpet-clangor sounds.
Enter KING HENRY V and his train, the Lord Chief- Justice among them
God save thy grace, King Hal! my royal Hal!
The heavens thee guard and keep, most royal imp of fame!
God save thee, my sweet boy!
KING HENRY IV
My lord chief-justice, speak to that vain man.
Lord Chief-Justice Have you your wits? know you what ‘tis to speak?
My king! my Jove! I speak to thee, my heart!
KING HENRY IV
I know thee not, old man: fall to thy prayers;
How ill white hairs become a fool and jester!
I have long dream’d of such a kind of man,
So surfeit-swell’d, so old and so profane;
But, being awaked, I do despise my dream.
Make less thy body hence, and more thy grace;
Leave gormandizing; know the grave doth gape
For thee thrice wider than for other men.
Reply not to me with a fool-born jest:
Presume not that I am the thing I was;
For God doth know, so shall the world perceive,
That I have turn’d away my former self;
So will I those that kept me company.
When thou dost hear I am as I have been,
Approach me, and thou shalt be as thou wast,
The tutor and the feeder of my riots:
Till then, I banish thee, on pain of death,
As I have done the rest of my misleaders,
Not to come near our person by ten mile.
For competence of life I will allow you,
That lack of means enforce you not to evil:
And, as we hear you do reform yourselves,
We will, according to your strengths and qualities,
Give you advancement. Be it your charge, my lord,
To see perform’d the tenor of our word. Set on.
The only way Barack Hussein could win in November is if we were to be foolish enough to put our own Carter clone up against him. The chances of that happe... wait... we’re toast.
has anyone heard an update on the rumoured video of the rev wright speech given by Barry’s bitter half???? I know they say they will release it later but does anyone think it is legit???
that would be the whip cream on top of the Sunday and nail in the coffin rolled into one....
Also odd that out of thousands of Churches in Chicago, he picks the one that is patored by a former Muslim (Jeremiah Wright) who is good friends with the Nation of Islam’s “Minister” Farrakhan!
Meanwhile McCain will have bus tracks all over every inch of his body as they run him over time and again.
Another Democrat who excels at “weasel words”.
I lived through Carter. Yes, McCain sucks, but he won't destroy the military, give away the Panama Canal (an example of a US strategic asset), turn his back on an ally (as Carter did to the Shah of Iran) or go on national TV and tell us that we suck (the "Malaise" speech.)
lost the election? Not if the twins have anything to say about it:)\
No, but he wants to hold all white people responsible for what a few white people did 150 years ago.
The name of that place needs to be changed to The Baboon Island Church of the Loudmouth.
LOL - McCain will do whatever his Democrat/Moderate friends in the Senate want. He has never met a promise, principle, or person he would not sacrifice to “get something done in a bipartisan manner.”
Now he throws them all under the bus and backtracks on his religion, something that is deeply personal and important. And listening to him now, we find that he values getting the presidency even more than his religious beliefs by putting them on hold.
The 1857 census (look it up) showed that there were more than 3600 slave owners who were free black people. Should their descendants receive reparations, or should they pay reparations?
Except that he keeps changing his mind on everything depending on which way the wind is blowing.
Yep he will be a very desisive leader. I see a lot of "change" in our future. Just like he promised.
It took twenty years to come to this conclusion? And you want to be president? Get off the dope.
Correction: there were thousands of black slave owners.
Thanks, at least there are two of us who knew that.
Not sure I understand where you’re coming from - was it uncomfortable for you because they asked him questions? Exactly what??? They should have asked him a lot more uncomfortable questions than they did. Until now, he has gotten off with a pass, no one has asked him uncomfortable questions at all. So I want them to keep piling on, asking him more and more.
But your post provided more detailed information. Thank you.
Obama voted for partial birth abortion. That’s enough to kill his chances forever with me personally. (No pun intended).
Apparently TUCC allowing a white Catholic priest into the "unashamedly black" church was too much for the Obama family. The Black Value system has been compromised.
