Oh how I love the Democrat infighting!!!! It all helps McCain tremendously. I'm not a big fan of his but compaired to these other two he's a gem! Kerry by the way should just fade away. He's over.

The more the dem. Obama fans are asking for the rev. to be put in the past, the more desperate they sound..

Mrs. Heinz made a stupid mistake to accuse Laura Bush of never having worked in her life.... I still remember that quote!!!

Why should we forget in a few days or weeks while Obama couldn't leave in 20 years!!! Give us the same time.

Let's see -
1) Obama attended Wright's church for like 20 years
2) Obama named a book after a sermon Wright gave
3) Obama has described both in writing and verbally that Wright is a mentor and good friend, and that Wright has had spiritual/religious influence on his life.
4) Wright has stated that Obama is saying what he needs to say to get elected (when Wright was asked how he felt about Obama distancing himself from him)
5) Wright is an obvious racist, is somewhat anti-patriotic, and preaches divisive points of views (doubt it, then go to YouTube and look up Jeremiah Wright - listen for yourself, make your own judgement call)
6) Obama is now acting like Wright is spouting ridiculous things, and not acting like he has, or saying what he said for the past 20 years.

Now with those things in mind... some people have called out Obama for not putting his hand on his heart for the pledge of allegiance, not wearing a US flag on his lapel, and his wife publicly announced that she hasn't felt patriotic about the US until very recently. Out of context all those things seem rather benign... in context to the whole Wright situation... I don't think they are all that benign at all. I think Obama is trying to sell us something, and it isn't his authentic self. I believe he is trying to appeal to the "white majority" by distancing himself from Wright, and any unpatriotic or unmainstream-christian evidence. I believe he is also trying to appeal to black voters by invoking MLK in speeches to them (he did this ridiculously frequent in my own town just a couple weeks ago), and by having Jeremiah Wright speak out purposefully on issues "for Obama" which only appeal to them, yet potentially appeal to them a great deal.

LOL! Hey, I have no comment on that, I just am writing the way I see things. I'm not stating that Clinton doesn't have her flaws, but dropping or ignoring this issue as John Kerry or any other Obama-following would like everyone to, is a mistake and that is pretty obvious.

Obama's former pastor isn't running for office is he? I wonder why it's ok for McCain to call Falwell an agent of intolerance in 2000 then went and kissed that blubbery fat slob's butt to just get the evangelical vote. If you remember Falwell blamed gays and women who had abortions for 9/11 but no outrage there. Now he gets endorsed by Hagee who called Catholoscim a ***** religion. I personally don't care if Obama sat in that church for 20 minutes or 20 years because Wright's words maybe inflammatory but unlike Hillary's or McCain's votes for the Iraq war they haven't killed anybody.

If the Dems wouldn't have nominated Kerry aka Lurch from the Adams Family in 2004, Bush would have been defeated. Maybe the DNC's IQ should have been tested.
