Since I am now back in the real world, I must admit that the latest in the "Rev." Wright saga is almost a yawn. But, leave it to Sen. Barack to disingenuously try to weasel his way out of the fact that he was a member of the infamous Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.
Yesterday, suddenly, Sen. Barack realized that while his "former" pastor, the repulsive "Rev." Jeremiah Wright was a Japanese bullet train derailing the campaign of hope.
Thus, Sen. Barack went out and "denounced" the "remarks" of the "former" pastor.
You see, since Sen. Barack tried the bob and weave in the infamous Philadelphia speech on race that was short on substance, the "Reverend" was looking for the right time and place.
So, this past weekend he went on the Jeremiah Wright barnstorming tour, starting in Dallas, a pit stop for an NAACP dinner in Detroit and the piece de resistance, his appearance before the National Press Club in Washington, D. C. on Monday.
I think that "Rev." Wright's appearance at the National Press Club is the highlight of this lowlife's tour de force.
Here, the "Rev." Wright tried to boost his Marine Corp service by taunting Vice-President Dick Cheney, who did not serve in the armed forces. Big deal. A lot of people have served in the armed forces, but some are like the "Rev." Wright, who learned not a thing about that service and thinks it inoculates him when he goes on irrational tirades. Such as his theory about the United States government inventing the AIDS virus to wipe out minority groups.
Now, this has been bandied about, usually by the same people who believe that the terrorist attacks of 9/11 were staged by the government. They are called truthers. And, one can suppose that the "Rev." Wright is doing a little truth-telling in his government-started-AIDS theory.
The fact remains that, as I have implored on so many occasions, take a peek at the Trinity website http://tucc.org. It is there that one will find the underpinnings of the beliefs of the "Rev." Wright and, despite his denials, the beliefs of one Barack Obama.
Now, Sen. Barack tries once again to say that this is not the same man that he met 20 years ago. This is not the same man who baptized Sen. Barack into the Christian faith. This is not the same man that married Michelle to Barack. This is not the same man who baptized the Obama daughters into the Christian faith. So, he became a whack job preacher overnight? Of course not and both the "Rev." Wright and Sen. Barack know that.
At least the wacko "Rev." Wright is speaking some truth.
I am sorry, as a practicing Christian, I do not believe for one moment that Sen. Barack was not in church on Sunday, September 16, 2001 right after the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D. C. Mrs. rightviewfromtheleftcoast and I were at church praying, crying and seeking help from Almighty God the night of 9/11. And we were in church on that Sunday. As Dennis Prager http://dennispragerradio.com noted on today's broadcast, everyone can remember that week and whether or not they were in church on that fateful Sunday. And, I am certain that Sen. Barack and family have been at Trinity on most if not all occasions that the "Rev." Wright spoke "truth to power."
And, what about that huge donation that the Obama family gave to Trinity recently of over $25,000. Was that possibly "hush" money? No one really knows.
While this will not go away anytime soon, it is too late for the Democrat party to have buyer's remorse of this disingenuous Sen. Barack and his baggage, AKA, Jeremiah Wright. Sen. Barack is the Democrat nominee for president. He will probably win North Carolina. He will not win Indiana. When the Democrat National Convention rolls into Denver in the heat of August, unless Sen. Hillary Clinton can rob Sen. Barack, he will walk out of Denver the Democrat standard bearer.
And, Sen. Barack will have the Wright albatross around his neck. At that point it may well be the anaconda and it will continue to squeeze the erstwhile "uniter". And, how many more times will Sen. Barack lie about his knowledge, or lack thereof, of the rantings of the "Rev." Jeremiah Wright?
