…For 20 years, Rev. Wright has been a “friend, mentor and pastor.” This is how Sen. Obama described him in a letter dated February 5, 2007.

In that letter, the senator wrote “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.”
Umm. Now- is it OK to tie Barack Obama to his pastor, mentor and father figure, Jeremiah Wright?
Barack Obama wrote that letter about Wright 5 days before he announced his candidacy for president.
UPDATE: Doug Ross— “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way Obama’s faith blows.”
