For any Obama supporters who have seen the Wright interview with Bill Moyers, their fondest wish must be for this man Wright to go away -- far away -- until after the election.

His innuendo-laden remarks, replete with sly winks and nudges, his refusal to deal with Moyers' softball questions, his implication that facts and ethics are relative to time, place, and audience -- all of these give the impression that Mr. Wright is at best an ignorant, small-minded man, self-satisfied with his cursory view of the world, and blissfully unaware of the importance to his fellow citizens of the background and associations of a major presidential candidate.

There is a lack of dignity, of moral clarity, and of any version of mainstream Christian thought, in Wright's comments. The good Reverend is a little man, and a silly one. Senator Obama needs to distance himself from this sort of person as quickly and as thoroughly as possible.

If not, Reverend Wright redux will doom the Obama campaign.

Yes, this America hating man should take a permanent vacation to someplace like Cuba! He seems to hate America so much, let him try Communism. It might suit him.

I don't think he hates America. I just think he has a limited perspective.

Freedom of speech, I can't believe posters want to put a "muzzle" on him. I thought the Obama supporters were for a free and open society, and get away from the managed news process.

Really? Is that why he repeatedly said "God DAMN America" and calls it "AmeriKKKA"? Sounds pretty hateful to me.

I agree. I thought when Obama had to deal with the issues around this man he still did it with grace. I don't think he disrepected Wright but seperated Wright from himself. Why is Wright coming out now. I would think if he had any respect for Obama and felt that he should win this race which I think he will. He should just stay out of the line of fire. But I did hear someone say that Obama has responded to this issue and needs to just move away from it.

Muzzle? How extreme! We all have freedom of speech!
I'm looking quite forward to hearing his interview and also looking forward to watching the sequel at general election time.

Bye, bye Obama.

He can TRY to move away from it but that doesn't make the fact that Obama has had a 20 year relationship with this man just go away. I don't care what he says, he cannot seperate himself from Wright.
