Barack Obama is Pissing Me Off


Obama is pissing me off. I'm sorry, I know you want the job but you do not throw your pastor under the bus. You do not claim his comments are "ridiculous and destructive," because many, MANY Americans believes he's speaking the truth.

You do NOT get into a cage match with another Black man and allow the media to manipulate you. You do not fall for the BS that you somehow have to win "real Americans" i.e. White working class voters to win the nomination.

Like I said yesterday this is all a setup to ensure that Hillary gets the nod. Her people have been saying it will be decided on June 15. Please don't think that's an accident.

I will still vote for him if he is the nominee but I have lost much of my respect for him. You DO NOT throw Wright under the bus. If you can't stand up for your Pastor than who the hell can you stand up for? If you can't validate the beliefs of millions, without calling them "ridiculous or destructive," than what the hell do you stand for? I guess only White working class values matter...huh?

Like I said Black folk...are ya'll prepared for when they give this election to Clinton? Because that is what they are trying to do.

Obama just needs to be very careful right now not to get caught up in anything that will sidetrack him.

I agree that Obama was being held to a double standard, but I think Wright put him in an impossible position and he did the only thing he could do. He risked his career to defend Wright back in March, and Wright had to know that coming out now and repeating his controversial remarks and implying that Obama secretly agreed with them and was only saying otherwise to win votes would hurt his campaign and hurt him personally. I wish Wright had spoken up during the original controversy and shown more of the side he showed in the Moyers interview, but his press conference on Monday left Obama no choice but to do what he did.

If you've got to throw your pastor under the bus (and by extension Black people and the Black church) to get to where you need to be...than maybe you don't need to be there.
