Grand Pubha Barbara Walters questioned Obama on whether he would leave this church if Wright had not retired. The fabuloso response:
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.When Rev. J. White accused the Unites States of infecting its citizens with HIV in order to eradicate a race, that goes a bit beyond "inappropriate" wouldn't you think? Calling this great nation the Unites States of KKK America is slightly more than mischaracterization as well. This statement just proves Barry don't get it. Or he subscribes to these thoughts too. Either way, its not a good thing.
THIS JUST IN! THE HOLE GOT DEEPER!
In Barry's coffee klatch today he makes mention of Uncle Rev. Wright's acknowledgement of having said offensive and bad things - though there is zero in the way of public record of this happening. When checking back with Barry O's camp they did the right thing - they denied Barry said it.
Obama spokesman Bill Burton said the senator's remarks did not imply that Wright has expressed misgivings about his statements.Ummm.... okay.... I am still thinking the Obama camp really could use a crash course in Clintonian Not Truth Telling 101. Just sayin'
"Sen. Obama was clearly saying that were Rev. Wright not retiring, he would need to be assured that the reverend understood why what he had said had deeply offended people and mischaracterized the greatness of this country," Burton said.
