It's too much, folks, I can't keep up. There are so many angles to the disgraceful Obama saga that I just can't address them all. Just as I begin to write about one, something new supersedes it in importance and priority.
And today's revelations are real beauties.
Barackie said on ABC's hideous The View this morning that ""Had the reverend not retired, and had he not acknowledged that what he had said had deeply offended people and were inappropriate and mischaracterized what I believe is the greatness of this country, for all its flaws, then I wouldn't have felt comfortable staying at the church,"
So Obie confirmed two things:
1) That Wrighty "has acknowledged" that the many hateful things he's said "deeply offended" people and "were inappropriate."
2) That Obie has no plan to change churches – and we already know that the church itself seems to have no plans of changing, either.
The good people at American Thinker seem to feel Obama was saying that the Rev. had apologized somewhere, though not publicly, and presumably to Barry. They add that apparently Barry is Wrighty's agent of choice to relay that apology to America.
But I don't think what Obama said indicates any apology was given, or even offered. I mean, I acknowledge that I offend a lot of people too. "F" 'em. And the part about his words and actions being inappropriate can mean anything, such as: not suitable coming from the pulpit of a church, even if the congregation relishes them… or maybe the good Rev feels even stronger hatred than he expressed?
My conclusion then is that Obama is a lawyerly liar.
And another thing, this is no longer a Wright-wrong issue. As they say on American idol, Barry took it and made it his own!
Meanwhile, past Pastor Wright, for his part, has bought a ten thousand square foot house in a gated community in Chicago. Forget that I don't recall any Catholic priest ever doing that, this isn't just unusual, it's outrageous.
What was it that Negro Nationalist Philosophy or whatever Reverend Wright calls it… what did it espouse? Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it rejecting "middle class values?" Didn't Mickey Obama tell young women to shun corporate jobs?
But OK, I think I get it, Wrighty's house purchase isn't hypocritical – he simply bypassed middle class values and went right to wealthy.
By the way, it struck me that this sounds a bit like the sort of dishonest hyperbole that liberals are fond of leveling at their targets, but the difference is that nothing I've said is untrue or even exaggerated, while liberals never get anything Wright.
