I agree with you. I felt a little disappointed. I would love to see him get to the White house but I don't want him to have to tap dance his way there ya know? I would hope he did this of his own accord and genuinely felt hurt by what Wright did.

At this point, he sure can't please anyone, LOL. Honestly, he didn't HAVE to say anything. Besides I didn't say he lost my vote. I'm just disappointed that he felt he had to do this in the first place. I don't want him to have to give press conferences every time Wright opens his mouth just to appease a segment of people that don't want to vote for him anyway.

I still say if any one was voting for him or against him because his pastor was Jeremiah Wright, that is an odd way to decide a vote. Hopefully now, all the naysayers and word parsers, will let us get back to real deal of winning this thing so we can start working to defeat Johh McCain and win the prize. I think we are letting our own slights cloud our judgement of the big picture. I for one am not afraid of the republicans, we have all the right issues, and sadly the country is going downhill economically every day.

In a world where thinking before one speaks is rare, I think people are uncomfortable when Obama does not have pat answers. Hillary can make pronouncements that we are going to create a nuclear umbrella over th emiddle east and no one bats an eye, but if Obama takes a moment to formulate a measured response to a question, he is hesitant. I want a thinker, then a doer, not a doer that thinks later, we have one of those now.

i completely agree
however i feel sometimes obama isnt thinking about what we SHOULD do, but rather he is thinking about what his aduiance wants to hear. If stats showed that 95% of americans where rapist, within a week hillary and obama would be competeing over the fact. Hillary would say that obama doesnt rape enough, and obama would be screaming that he rapes people all the time.
