Jeremiah Wright: “Barack said what he had to say.”

Previews of Jeremiah Wright’s interview with Bill Moyer are now hitting the media.

A quote attributed to Reverend Wright is, “Barack Obama said what he had to say as a politician.”


How many people can remember that TV show, “What’s My Line”? Will the real Barack Obama please stand up?

When are we going to stop getting a politician’s lip service from Barack? The answer might well be “never” or “not before the general election” since he may know that the vast majority of Americans may not like what they hear.

Barack Obama wants campaigning to be about the issues. Well, the American public would like for the campaign to be about the issues also. But, they also want the person presenting the issues to be someone that that can trust regardless of his or her stand on the issues. If the candidate isn’t well known to the public then the character of the candidate becomes an issue … like it or not.

What the American public … or that part of the American public that hasn’t bought Barack Obama hook, line and sinker … wants to know is, “Can they trust Barack Obama to be a man of his word?” It’s the old “in your ear” analogy. It may sound good, but can you believe it?

Well, according to Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama says what he needs to say to get elected President. So. Don’t all candidates? Sure. But, it’s a fact that you can trust some more than others … and … if you can’t completely trust them, or what they say … usually the candidate has enough of a track record that you can predict where they’re coming from. Basically, Hillary Clinton is an known quantity. You may not believe everything she says, but you have a good idea of where she’s coming from. The same applies to John McCain.

Barack Obama is a different matter. Several months ago, I actually preferred him over Hillary Clinton. Then I realized I knew next to nothing about him. I decided to start looking beyond the hype and what he’s written about himself and what he says he wants to do for the country. And, quite frankly, the more I learned , the less I liked and the more questions I had.

One comment he made a while back kept coming back to haunt me. Speaking on religion, he said that he had finally found a form of Christianity that he was comfortable with and that was in Reverend Wright’s church.

That form of Christianity is Black Liberation Theology. One of its fundamental concepts is that God is black and supports the oppressed black people against their oppressor, the white race and, if God isn’t black and doesn’t support the black people in overthrowing their oppressor, then God doesn’t exist.

According to the individuals who developed the concept of Black Liberation Theology like James Hal Cone, by their own admission, it is strongly based in Marxism.

James Hal Cone – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

One thing I’ve noticed about people with marxist tendencies, people like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, is that they have no qualms about distorting the truth or frankly lying to achieve their goals. I forgot. That short list also includes Jeremiah Wright and may, in fact, include Barack Obama. It can explain his fudging on questions, contradictions, mis-statements, phraseology,associations and evasiveness in general.

If you read some of Karl Marx’s writings from the time that he was a journalist in London, his choice of words are no different from those of Black Liberation theologists including Jeremiah Wright himself and James Hal cone who Wright frequently alludes to. By Barack’s own admission, this form of Christianity is his “comfort zone” and occasionally slips out … “typical white people”, oppression, etc.

It’s an interesting thought. Barack Obama might actually become the first Marxist president of the United States.


Obama Admits to PA. Underdog Status Because …

… , as he says, the Clinton political structure in Pennsylvania is just too strong.

Well, Barack, it certainly wasn’t from a lack of you outspending the Clintons there.

But … just suppose … hypothetically of course, maybe you, Barack, had something to do with it yourself.

For instance, “typical white people” … not exactly endearing.

And … “bitter”, “clinging to guns and religion …”. Sound familiar.

And … the debate last week. Ooouuuuuu …

Hypothetically, of course, Barack, you might have just shot yourself in the foot. Ouch!!!

Again, hypothetically, it’s probably a good thing that people actually started vetting you as late as they did … or you might not be having the bragging rights you’re desparately “clinging” to right now. Speaking of “clinging” …

Otherwise, the states that you’re so proud of winning might not have turned out the way they did. Lucky you!

However you spread it or spin it, people know an insult when they hear one … even, and especially, when they weren’t meant to hear it. People don’t like to feel like they’re being talked about behind their back or more specifically stabbed in the back.

If the Clinton political structure in Pennsylvania is too powerful for you to overcome, you really should be expect, … no … demand a “Thank you” note from Hillary after her win, because you sure did your share to help her.

Defining “Typical” for Barack Obama

Barack Obama, at least twice in the past week, referred to his grandmother as a”typical” white person. He was referring to her fear of black men and her stereotyping of blacks.

Since Barack Obama is considered an educated and intelligent person, I was curious regarding exactly what he meant … so I decided to look up the definition of the word, “typical”. I’m presuming he means exactly what he says (except, obviously, when he isn’t being truthful) and I wanted to be sure I understood exactly what he was saying.

So … I went to Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, Seventh Edition. I used that edition since it was from my college days … hopefully not too outdated.

Typical (adj.) – (I’m presuming everyone knows how to pronounce it by now. ) 1. constituting or having the nature of a type: symbolic, 2a. combining or exhibiting the essential characteristics of a group (my emphasis), 2b. conforming to a type.


So, Barack Obama feels that his grandmother’s fears and stereotypes are part of the essential characteristics of white people. Interesting. It makes me wonder exactly how many white people Barack Obama actually knows. Maybe he’s been immersed in his black experience in south Chicago too long and has absorbed a little more of Jeremiah Wright’s venom than he is aware of.

His comments are “typical” of a paranoia, that everyone is out to get him, everyone is against him. In a perverse way, paranoia is like a grandiose and egocentric personality, that the paranoid person actually matters enough for everyone to be out to get him. I suppose running for president is one way to prove that hypothesis.

Everything I’ve seen and heard of him, his pastor and the congregation of Trinity Church of Christ leaves me with no doubt that he is well suited to represent them. Whether he’s suitable to represent anyone beyond that population is yet to be proven. Even his election to the United States Senate may represent a fluke since he had poorly organized opposition with the last minute introduction by the Republican party of Alan Keyes, not even a resident of the state of Illinois.

Why would anyone with such a low opinion of so many of his fellow men desire to represent them before the world? Will electing him to be president of the United States actually change his opinion and satiate his thus far insatiable need for self identity and recognition? How many books has he written about himself?

Remember the John F. Kennedy quote from his inaugural address, “Ask not what your country can do for you- ask what you can do for your country.” (http: //www. speeches/ John_F _Kennedy /5.htm)

Somehow, I get the feeling that Barack Obama and his wife, Jeremiah Wright and his congregation and a lot of other people have this backwards. Their lives are filled with an expectation that things should be done for them. Everything is owed them and they owe nothing. It appears to me that they are always expecting their country to do something for them … and its never enough. Everyone is to blame for their problems except themselves. So, they wallow in their hate filled misery … blaming white America, blaming corporate America, blaming the world.

I have too much respect for my black friends to say that this is a “typical” black attitude. But, it is “typical” of people like Jeremiah Wright, regardless of their color.

And Barack Obama has revealed his common and base nature by referring to his grandmother as “typical” anything. He just really isn’t that special. America has been more than generous to him and deserves better in return.
