Contentions

Re: Wrong on Wright

After a day of feigning that Rev. Wright’s comments were in essence no big deal or taken out of context, the Obama camp, late on a Friday afternoon, has put out a statement condemning Wright’s inflammatory language and contending such language was never used in Obama’s presence.

This is yet another instance in which Obama seems unwilling or unable to face the media personally when challenged on a tough issue. You may recall his “your eight questions are up” attitude when confronted with Tony Rezko questions. Does he think he will escape having to face reporters and answer questions personally?

And was he really not aware of Rev. Wright’s views and language? Even if he was never present during any offending sermons, it seems somewhat less than believable that Obama, before the last few days, was in the dark about his “mentor’s” views and never read news accounts describing his fiery language. You can bet the Clinton camp will be working the weekend on this one.
