Obama Unambiguously Throws Wright Under Bus

The press conference is ongoing as I type this. Allah will have the video as soon as it’s available. Also Michelle Malkin is liveblogging.

Obama appears to be seriously displeased by Wright’s performance, last weekend. Calls them “rants not grounded in truth”. Says it doesn’t reflect anything he believes. He’s annoyed by the damage Wright has done to him personally, but more importantly… his campaign. (I was expecting him to say race relations in this country, or something of that nature, but nooooo). Does Obama have any idea how depressing Wright’s words are to average Americans?

Incredibly, he asks us to believe that Reverend Wright’s view of America, which was on display over the weekend, (which Obama strongly condemns) was never on display during the 20 years he was a member of TUCC. He goes to church to pray, not see a spectacle. I’m sorry, but I call b.s.

The Fox Commentators (Edie Hill and ?) find Obama’s response to the questions, not satisfying. The problem still not going to go away…could be the “death knell” of his campaign. (Gosh! I hope not!)

Also, he disavows the claim that Wright was ever his “spiritual mentor”, or “adviser”, merely his pastor. He says the media has erroneously portrayed Reverend Wright as such. The implication being…they’re really not that close. I could be wrong, but I thought Obama was on record as describing Wright as his spiritual adviser.

I’ll be busy googling for the next few minutes.

Ace’s coverage here.

UPDATE:

As for the ‘Hey! He was only my pastor…not my spiritual mentor or advisor’ claim; Obama said back in January 2007:

Obama says that rather than advising him on strategy, Wright helps keep his priorities straight and his moral compass calibrated.

“What I value most about Pastor Wright is not his day-to-day political advice,” Obama said. “He’s much more of a sounding board for me to make sure that I am speaking as truthfully about what I believe as possible and that I’m not losing myself in some of the hype and hoopla and stress that’s involved in national politics.”

Sounds like he’s calling him some sort of spiritual adviser, (not to mention a ‘day to day’ political adviser!) if you ask me.

    I know this is a weird request, but does anyone know of a nice, inspiring video of black and white people singing a hymn?

    That’s why I find Obama’s church so disturbing.
