Senator Barack Obama continued his defense of his racist pastor, Jeremiah Wright, today by saying that Wright was stuck in a "time warp".
“What they spoke to was, I think, a brilliant man who was still caught in a time warp back in the ’60s, early ’70s and the ’50s, where he grew up, and had a sense of where America was and didn’t have a good enough sense of how it had changed,” said Obama. Obama's comment came on an appearance on "The View" earlier today.
If this man cannot grip reality and realize that this is not the 60's, he has no place on the pulpit. Obama can defend Wright all he wants, but the fact is that this says a lot about Obama's judgment and character. As much as he claims that he was not present for "SOME" of these statements, made by Pastor Wright, there is no way that you attend a church for 20 years and not know what types of things are being taught. Especially when you are as involved as Obama has claimed to be.
To go back to something else that I mentioned in this post, Obama said that he was not present for "SOME" of the bigoted, racist, anti-American and hate-filled sermons. So was he saying that he is was also present for some? If he was then there is no excuse for not getting up and leaving in the middle of a sermon. He should of either left the church or asked Wright to resign. It is my personal belief the he was present for some or at least knew of some of the hate-filled sermons delivered by Wright. Because he chose to continue to be a member of the church and had a close relationship with the racist pastor I am certain that his man lacks the judgment and experience to lead the strongest country in the world.
Thank you for reading and God Bless.
