Obama: "I Seek Daily to Imitate His Faith" …Until Today

“I constantly remember Rev. Wright as the shepherd who guided me to my commitment to Christ one Sunday morning at Trinity. I often consider, as I work in the Senate how he lives his life-a life of service to Trinity, Chicago and the nation; his activism on behalf of causes that few would champion and his dogged commitment to the first principles of love for God and fellow man. And in my personal walk, I seek daily to imitate his faith.

But, that all changed today after the Reverend’s preaching from this weekend.
Obama threw the Reverend under the bus today.

“I could no longer disown him as I could disown my white grandmother.”

Rev. Wright joined his white grandmother today:


And, don’t forget Obama’s line on “white folks greed”:

“It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…That’s the world! On which hope sits!”

Barack Obama still has not remarked on any of the filthy TUCC newsletters:
** Obama’s Church Newsletter Published Hamas Manifesto
** After 8 Months… Obama Finally Apologizes For Hamas Article
** Obama’s Church: Israel Planned Ethnic Bomb To Kill Blacks & Arabs
** Obama’s Pastor Wright: “Italians Look Down Their Garlic Noses…”
** Obama’s Mentor Wright Slams Nation’s “Fondling Fathers”
** Rev. Jeremiah Wright: Thomas Jefferson Was a Rapist, Too!

MacRanger says it’s too late for Barack.
