Obama Sinking...Fast

(Examiner cartoonist Nate Beeler)

We certainly have the pulse of the national elections this year:
  • A few weeks ago, after his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, first drew headlines for his fiery sermons, Barack Obama responded with a graceful speech on race in America. But Rev. Wright has decided he isn't about to shut up and launched a series of provocative remarks over the weekend and on Monday. On Tuesday afternoon, Obama denounced Wright, saying "His comments were not only divisive... but I believe that they end up giving comfort to those who prey on hate." The candidate added, "Whatever relationship I had with Reverend Wright has changed as a consequence of this."
We can hardly wait for the Democratic Convention. In a perfect world, the so called "super delegates" throw this thing into a tizzy, either by nominating Hillary despite her trailing in the popular vote or they toss it to someone not even on the ballot, like Gore. And Jesse, Al, the NAACP will attempt to take their ball and go home with it, throwing the entire democratic party into an all-out war.

Hopefully, this is the end result:
  • The ultra leftists who hijacked the party in the 1960's will be marginalized the way they should have been years ago. They die out in 30 years along with the hippie remnants.
  • A moderate Democratic party, albeit a much smaller party, apologizes to Joe Lieberman and Zell Miller and attempt to reconnect with the "Reagan democrats" who deserted the part in droves circa 1980.
  • The Green Party, headed by Nader makes some strides as a viable third party, but end up going the way of Libertarians - just a "little bit too out-there" for normal people.
We can dream, can't we?

I beleive the Rev that Obama will simply say whatever he can to get elected. While I cannot STAND the rev, he has no problem speaking up, and shoots from the hip. I hope he goes on tour for the next several weeks, burying Obama!! Funny, the hateful racist minister is burying the first real black pres canditate...... can we skip the voting and just swear in mc cain yet?

Fact: Barack Hussein Obama has willingly belonged to a black separatist church for over 20 years.

Conclusion (to anyone with even a portion of a brain): He is a racist. Period. End of story. I don't care what he says. I don't care what his "pastor" says. It's a done deal.

The Obama camp sent Wright out to make this last speach just so Bambi can act and look disgusted. More Chicago-style smoke-and-mirrors. It's so obvious to anyone with a clue. They must think we are stupid.

Barack threw the Reverend under the bus in order to protect his wife from having to answer questions about her past beliefs, which would of led to more questions about his beliefs.

It just proves that the Reverend was right and that Barack will say anything because he is just another politician.

Barack Obama Bin-Laden says---

There are two ways to boil a frog.

One way is to boil the water and throw the frog in. The frog splashes around frantically. He might even escape and the boiling water will be splashed on the bystanders in the process.

Another way is to throw the frog in cool water. The frog swims around happily. You then turn up the heat. The frog's senses become dulled as the water temperature rises. Very soon, the water is boiling and the frog is history before he realizes it.

Someone has turned up the heat too quickly. My followers, the heat must be turned down. Allah will guide us.

To all the Obama/Wright critics:

Perhaps you would do well to actually read the Bible, particularly the New Testament, as a precursor to forming your opinions and expressing them.

You might start with "Judge Not, Least Thee Be Judged" and "Let He Who Is Without Sin Cast The First Stone" and "Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself".

Rev. Wright is trying to keep Obama from getting elected. These parasitic black reverends (i.e. Sharpton, Jackson, etc.) have spent their whole lives saying the policies of the white U.S. government have kept the black man down and in turn these reverends have made a ton of money doing so. If Obama gets elected, these reverends can't say that any more. Obama is their black leader. He would represent U.S. policy. Obama would be the 'Man' that was keeping them down. I tell you, there is an effort to keep Obama out of office, not from the white man, but from some of the black men that have exploited their own people for many many years.

Wright did this on purpose to get Obama to cut him loose. He was unwilling to distance himself until now. Wright threw himself under the bus to help his friend Obama win the presidency.

What exactly is the "black church?"

Is this some new religion? I have never heard of the "black church." Are non black people welcome? Do they preach love, tolerance, the golden rule?

This is all news to me, the first time I heard about the "black church" was the other day when Rev. Wright spoke of the "black church" sounding very anti everything-that-isn't-black to me.

Does he mean Baptist? I know of many Caucasian and other non black people who worship at Baptist churches. Is this something like Episcopalian, Lutheran, Methodist or Catholic?

I honestly don't know. He can't mean that along racial lines, can he? "black church" as in non-white or anti-white?

That sounds a lot like racism to me, correct me someone, illuminate me please. What the hell is the "black church?"

Remember boys and girls if Barry Obama is elected another big piece of the 400 year chip will be removed from the shoulder of Black America.

No longer will the poverty pimps claim a Black Man cannot achieve greatness in this country. No longer can they claim America is a white racist society.

If he were to ascend to the lofty perch of the Presidency all the poverty pimps - Wright / Sharpton / Jesse would have to come up with a new strategy to make the white liberals feel guilty once again.

All part of the plan to keep their jobs - plain and simple.

Just my two "sense", but doesn't it seem that this clown is trying to undermind the whole Obama campaign. If Obama wins, people the likes of Wright, Jesse, Al, and Louis will have nothing to spout off about,ie. "how the white man is keepin the black man down". If Obama wins,How can these aforementioned theives keep up the with all their white bashing that make them millions upon millions of dollars. If Obama, a Black man (and yes I know he's half white but no one will mention this) wins their cash cow days of playing the race card will be over. They do not want Obama to win (Note: I'm not an Obama supporter). How can they continue to blame whitey when the biggest boss in the land is Black. Look at the other side of the coin If Obama loses they can out swinging about how the racist white media, and populace turned against Obama because of the big deal they made of Wright's comments

CT, stick in in your ass.

We told you time and time again about taking what we say and twisting it into "Do you mean to imply...."

We don't imply anything - we type what we mean. It's simply a sign of how weak and untenable your position is that you have to resort to "implying" an argument that was never made, intimated or put forth just so you have something to rebut.

Take your straw man elsewhere, asshat. You've worn out your welcome. Again.

On the 8th of March 1965 along with approximately 800 other Marines I landed on the shores of Vietnam at a place called Red Beach. I was a 19 year old Rifleman assigned to the 3rd Battalion of the Ninth Marines. For the next 13 months I was involved in too many firefights I care to remember. I saw 6 close friends placed in body bags to be shipped home. Every year I visit the Wall in DC and pay respect to those 6 brave young men. I stand there a proud “Former Marine.” I will always be a Marine. Semper Fi to all of my fellow Marines who may read this post.

One last comment, Rev. Wright you may have worn the uniform of the United States Marine Corp but you are not a Marine. No Marine would ever let the words God Dam America flow from their mouths. You are a disgrace to the Corp, you are a disgrace to this Country and may your mouth lock shut if you ever have the nerve to utter the words Semper Fi. When our time on earth is up and if you should ever run into General Lewis “Chesty” Puller I hope he beats you ass every day till the end of time.

Eight years of Bush has killed this country.

However Iraq is flushed with cash from Oil profits the numbers where just released yesterday. good job cowboy.

Actually I'm glad Rev. Wright's sermons are now widespread. The political commentators and some posters on this blog have absolutely no clue of the black experience in this country,and this in the year 2008. The "black church" is a term used because whites did not allow blacks to worship with whites in the same church. That is why Richard Allen formed The African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) in the 1700s because he was barred from worshiping in the "white church". If you studied U.S. history you would know that whites could frequent black establishments, but blacks could not frequent white ones. Whites created the divide along racial lines in this nation not blacks. The Black Codes prohibited more than two black people from congregating unless a white man was there to observe what was going on. That is why black folk had church in secrecy for many years until a relaxation of the Codes. Finally,just reading the transcripts of Rev.Wright's sermons does not give a clear understanding of the sermon,look at the video and observe his delivery;actually LISTEN to his words and tell me if he is wrong. ps. The first president of The United States, His Excellency George Washington warned of this nation becoming involved in foreign wars. Every American should read Washington's farewell address to the nation. Over 200 years have passed and it is still relevant.
