Perspective on Wright
I've been doing some research on his sermons, and I came across his very last one. It holds a much different view than the soundbites that we saw on TV. I'm going to look into it more, because I think the RW is trying to swiftboat him. He says he wasn't there, if their going to bring up him being married there, babtizing his children etc, they better show more than 2 sermons on the TV to account for 20 years of going there.

Here is the link: Interesting no one mentioned this on the news. I'm going to send it to them, and everthing I find.

1. What part of Obama saying he doesn't agree with Wright
don't you understand. You can nominate Wright for sainthood, it doesn't matter. Obama says he disagrees with him. Are you trying to prove Obama wrong?

2. nice try...
Obama says he disagrees with the statements he made in those soundbites that were played, not that he disavows anything he's ever said.

5. Such black and white thinkers you Hillary people are.
Sad to be perpetually trapped in a literal world. It is what I like least about the RW.

9. Hate mail from who? When Ferrarro got it, it came from BO supporters.
Or so she said.

Is there any report on 'who' is sending the hate mail to Obama's church? Because I hope no one believes it is Hillay's supporters doing it. As an HRC supporter myself, I can honestly say that it would not even cross my mind to personally assail Wright or his church for the YouTube clip. That is not how Hillary supporters behave, because that is not how she herself is -- despite being falsely accused of all SORTS of crimes.

Any hate mail going to Wright's church is coming from right-wing-nuts, not the Hillary camp.

Let's just get that clear.
