Uncle Tom

I'll bet anyone a cup of coffee or a gallon of gas that Wright will call Obama that,if he hasn't already. Any takers, anyone, Beuler, Beuler?

I just watched Obama on CNN. I've never listened to him before because he's a Dem and I wasn't going to vote for a Democrat anyway so; it really didn't matter. I noticed, however, he's not at all well-spoken, is he? It was akin to the gutteral hems, haws, umms, uhhhs and ahhhs of a teenager. Not cool for someone who needs to be off-the-cuff as a political candidate(needs to be).

Anyway, that's just my slight hint of the odor of gasoline(2 cent) worth.

or say "uncle".

But you are on target with your observations. As soon as Obama gets off message, the hemming & hawing, pregnant pauses, and "uhhhs" begin.

And Obama's foreign policy proposes that we sit down and "negotiate" with terrorists . . . which is doubly sad because:

1) it is naive
2) he is incapable of negotiating

Which all just proves his message of hope and change is just pandering to the masses. His record shows no proof that he is even remotely capable of bringing the coutry together or changing anything (except his exterior packaging).

From the other side of the tracks

Apparently, all he can do is read from prepared texts, or answer softball questions.

His demeanor was so bad in this news conference that I think Bush makes him look like an amateur.

What really bothers me, is that its not what Wright said about America that finally pissed of Barack. No, it wasn't God Damn America, or the CIA giving Blacks Aids, or his support of Farrakhan, no, it was when he finally felt like Wright hurt his little feelings.

They were supposed to have this wink, wink, nod, nod relationship. Last year, Obama specifically dis-invited Wright to his announcment for President. The reason was because Wright was too hot to handle. Well that means Obama knew then, what he has known for 20 years. Wright is an idiot, who Barack considers to be his Uncle and Mentor. Everything can be explained away, EXCEPT when Wright "disses" him by suggesting that Obama is not sincere. That Obama is only playing to the camera about his comments about Wright. That Obama is nothing special, that he's nothing more than a politician.

This destroyed Obama, because he is so close to the brass ring, having been given a pass for the past year on Wright. He has had to endure saying, YES WE CAN, and CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN, and nothing more, but now, he's having to deal with a real issue.

At least I know Obama is serious about CHANGE. He's changed his opinion of his Uncle. He threw him under the bus with his TYPICAL White Grandmother. Now you couple this with his "bitter" comments out in San Francisco, and you see a pattern of elitism.

Okay, Hack, all press is good press. I can't wait to see how Obama handles the future stories that are gonna plummet him in the general election. Talk about hemmming and hawwing. He's going to long for the days when he was immune from criticism.

Of course Obama threw him under the bus. Next, he'll back over him a couple of times too until he's no longer a big drag on his campaign. I think Wright is jealous of Obama's rise and probably thinks he used Wright a little to get street cred and jump-start his political career since Wright was a political force in chicago whether he disputes that or not.

Look, we're all big boys and girls here and hopefully most of us aren't naive about our political leaders and would-be presidents. I have no doubt that Obama didn't hear half the spew from Wright over time because he wasn't there at church to hear it. He joined, got the good rub from Wright and others involved in the church, and probably attended once every blue moon or so and paid little attention.

Wright is acting like the half-senile grandfather at family get togethers that everyone tries to ignore. I don't know what else anyone expects Obama to say besides he's totally against the guy, he didn't used to this goofy back whenever, etc. He's a politician and Wright's a liability right now. He's outlived his political uses for Obama and so he's getting thrown under the bus. Since Wright has already got about half way under the bus himself, not much effort is required to finish the job.

If Wright having a love-fest with everyone's favorite Jew-hating black separatist Farrakhan wasn't enough, another reverend, fat Al Sharpton, disgraced liar and race-baiter, is causing problems by saying Obama is trying to cater to white people. Somewhere, Bill and Hillary are shoving some more needles into their Obama voodoo doll and smirking.

I'd wager that Clinton will end up being the nominee, now that the dust is beginning to settle over the Wright escapade. Obama would make a terrific running mate for her - the dream ticket the Dem's had hoped for.

Clinton is battle-tested, we know all her 'skeletons' and she'll put up a great fight against McSame.

This will be interesting.
