Mentor Jeremiah Wright joins Grandma under the bus–
What a weak and dishonest man.
Obama says that after 20 years of Jeremiah Wright being his spiritual mentor, he would have left the racist Trinity Church if Wright would not have retired.
The truth is– We all know he’d still be sitting in the front row at Trinity if tapes of his anti-American mentor of 20 years were not making the cable news shows.
The AP reported:
White House hopeful Barack Obama suggests he would have left his Chicago church had his longtime pastor, whose fiery anti-American comments about U.S. foreign policy and race relations threatened Obama’s campaign, not stepped down.

“Had the reverend not retired, and had he not acknowledged that what he had said had deeply offended people and were inappropriate and mischaracterized what I believe is the greatness of this country, for all its flaws, then I wouldn’t have felt comfortable staying at the church,” Obama said Thursday during a taping of the ABC talk show, “The View.” The interview will be broadcast Friday.
In his sermons over the years, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright has railed against the United States and accused it of bringing on the Sept. 11 attacks by spreading terrorism. He also has said the government invented AIDS to destroy “people of color” and has shouted “God damn America” for its treatment of minorities.
Apparently… Those racist anti-Semitic newsletters his church puts out are OK, though.
…At least until they start making headlines.
