Barack pulls the plug...
Barack Obama has made the extraordinary
effort to cut all ties between himself and Rev. Wright. There really
was no choice for Senator Obama because he was seeing first hand how
the rants of Reverend Wright negatively affect the sensibilities of
most patriotic Americans.
Mr. Obama took issue with several
statements that were made by the Reverend with regard to the recent
controversy caused by the Reverends sermons while he was the Pastor at
Senator Obama’s church.
Reverend Wright is very critical of many aspects of American life that involve racism and discrimination. However, he tends to go way overboard when venting about real and perceived bad deeds done to people of color. Most people would concede that there are many facts supporting his position but the Reverend goes to the max in labeling America as a racist oppressive society. There seems to be no good that can happen in America according to Reverend Wright. And most Americans, including Senator Obama, believe that there is plenty of good left in America.
The most disturbing part of the Reverends campaign was watching him make use of the media attention that has focused on him. He really seemed to relish a platform that allowed him to vent his views one more time. Most people have dismissed him as a crank but he doesn’t get it. The Reverend suggests that those who criticize him don’t get it. I think the Senator has the best idea as to what to make of the Reverend. It’s time to leave him to his own devices and supporters and move on. The coming election is too important an event to ignore.
