I agree.

I know it's off-topic for this thread, but on television appearances and with statements like this, he seems like such a genuinely nice, reasonable and good-humoured man, almost avuncular in nature, that it's very difficult to reconcile what I see with his ghastly outlook and horrendous policies that are based on his religious-right views.

the only reason diamond wants to be friends is because you were once governed by dreamy Mitt Romney.

lucky girl.

Ummm No Mr. Obama I haven't. I guess the difference between me and you is that:

1. My church focuses on the teachings of Jesus, not on the political ideology of a church and a Pastor.

2. If my Pastor had made such divisive statements, and I was touting myself to be a "Post-racial Candidate", I would find another church to attend.

He said this pastor had been so involved w his life, he won't just walk away. He'd hold to the good and denounce what he felt was not good/productive.

2- DOn't you know that the black church was one of the ONLY places black people could get together and besides sharing spiritual worship and fellowship, that it WAS a place to plan political an social stuff.

on a different aspect..............the anger the preacher flamed with..........
take for instance the fact that a RECCENT study showed that
a black man WITHOUT a criminal record is STILL LESS LIKELY to be hired,
THAN a WHITE man WITH a Criminal record.

And you wonder why some black folk still get angry & bitter at times, huh?

Oh come on. There is absolutely no excuse for a man who influences so many people to spew that kind of crap. It's blatantly hateful and to continually support a church like that is ridiculous.

Even though many things that Rev. Wright said were true albeit angry, I worried that Barack had found himself trapped where he could not recover.

Today, major commentators have called this one of the greatest speeches in American history, even better than "I Have A Dream."

I don't trust such claims, especially when they come so quickly.

That said, Obama has turned something scary into such a profound moment for all of us. The attention he's received and his honesty about his white side as much as his black side suggest to me that he might actually make this greatest moment.

Frankly, I cannot imagine settling for McCain or Clinton when we have such a rhetorical genius in our midst.

Obama has flaws, but these generally have to do with how mainstream and middle of the road he is, not with how radical he is.

God bless him and his campaign and --sorry-- but goddamn the racist lynch mobs trying to stop history from being made.
