Why Does Rev. Wright Hate Barack Obama?

By Yul

Barack Obama’s learning the hard way that when you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas, and Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr.’s fleas are sucking the life out of Obama’s campaign.

Obama tried to explain Rev. Wright’s crazy anti-American sermons with an historically frank, intelligent, and gracious speech on race relations. He firmly disagreed with Wright, but still embraced him as a beloved pastor.

Wright’s thanks to Obama for turning the other cheek is to stir up more trouble on the speaking circuit.

On TV with Bill Moyers and live before the NAACP and the National Press Club, Wright’s been airing his paranoia and claiming our government is the root of all evil – from AIDS to September 11.

He’s even had the audacity to joke about being Obama’s vice president, and vowed to stay “after” Obama if he gets elected to ensure he does the right things, like he’s got delusions of being the power behind the throne.

This leaves me wondering if Wright’s simply nuts or bent on revenge. Maybe he’s still steamed that Obama uninvited him to the event where Obama announced his candidacy.

To watch Wright seizing his last 15 minutes of fame to poison every mind he can reach has got everyone wondering what the hell Obama was doing in his church for 20 years.

If Wright really loved Barack, he’d be exercising his right to remain silent. Instead, Wright’s proving himself exactly what those sound bites revealed – a bitter lunatic who believes God damns America and he’s glad of it. It’s the only logical explanation for willfully trying to destroy Obama’s chance to lead this country and make the world a better place.

At this point, unless we see Wright being led away in a straitjacket to an undisclosed location, Obama’s only hope is to declare that he and Rev. Wright are finished. Period.

    … that this is a ploy on Obama’s part to get the “pity” vote? Honestly, how could anyone believe that Obama attended the Rev. Wright’s church/services, was married there, took his childeren there, etc. and claims that he never heard him say anything of this sort? Was he napping?? Doing soduko puzzles? I believe he even appointed Rev. Wright as his ‘spiritual advisor’ for his campaign, didn’t he? Now, all of a sudden, he’s shocked at what he finally hears and is disavowing him?? Pullease! It’s all a ploy. Sadly, I believe he’s lost any credibility that he had.

    Unfortunately, I think Obama’s lack of experience is showing. It started during the last debate when they were lobbing stupid questions at him and he got rattled. Hillary never lost her cool and did a much better job of trying to inject some facts into the conversation than he did.

    And now in this Wright business, it’s absurd for anyone to think that Obama happened to miss church every time Wright shot off his mouth — for 20 years. That their relationship has gone through this meltdown just as Obama is fighting for the biggest job opportunity of his life just goes to show they’ve probably never been as tight as he thought they were. We may never know if it was because Obama didn’t agree with Wright all along, or that he DID agree with Wright and has turned on him and now Wright’s pissed.

    That level of naivete in a president would be scary. Here at CatsWorking, we’ll admit our faith in Obama is shaken.

  6. Why Does Rev. Wright Hate Barack Obama?…

    Obama’s uptick nationally over the past couple of days might very well be real, but polling over the weekend is always tricky and Rev. Wright is just now making his presence felt around the country. If anything, it was Wright’s speech ……

    I agree – it is unsettling. And it may be the long, grueling campaign is getting to him too. But if the campaign is grueling, so is being President…so it is worrisome.
