Poll question: WHAT'S WORSE? Being a long-time follower/associate of Jeremiah Wright, or of Dick Morris?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Was Dick Morris involved with the Nation of Islam?
I know he's a GOP operative, now.

3. He first worked for the Clintons in 1978, so if he was,
it was probably before Farrakhan's time.

4. There's nothing whatsoever wrong with being an associate of Jeremiah Wright.
Reverend Wright man has done an incredible amount of good in his community. I would be proud to be his associate. I don't agree with everything he's ever said, but I agree with a lot of it.

Dick Morris is a total jerk. There's simply no comparison between the two men.

5. Flying to meet Muumar Qaddafi in Libya is okay with you?
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:03 PM by BeatleBoot
Befriending Louis Farrakhan is okay with you?

Maybe I'm missing something here.

But do you even understand what you are saying?

9. Those are recent photos....Remember Qaddafi...Lockerbie Scotland Tragedy...
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:16 PM by BeatleBoot
After Bush said "even countries that harbor terrorists" will be considered terrorist states, Bush normalized relations with this guy because of OIL.

You may want to go talk with Bush about the RECENT photos of Qaddafi and Blair et al.

But he was considered a bad guy in the 80's and 90's.

And last time I checked neither Farrakhan nor Wright were heads of state.

10. Yeah. And could it be any worse than these two guys meeting?
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:15 PM by kwenu



Could it be that Wright has a point about America using other countries as pawns and then destroying them? And then thinking we deserve to say God Bless America as if we're saints?

Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:24 PM by BeatleBoot
your added commentary makes it clear you have not.

6. I feel this man Wright has been a victim of McCarthyism
They cherry picked over thousands of hours of his sermons to pick out the most inflamatory sound-bites they could find. I am sure a man being leader of this church, members counting 6,000 is for a reason. He must be a wonderful spiritual leader.

I see the results in Obama, and Oprah, who is also a member of the church. You dont see angry Black Americans, you see people who are committed to making this country better. Reaching out to the less fortunate. In essence walking in the shoes of whom they worship.

Like Jimmy Carter, he has said some things people would consider inflamatory. But no one can dispute, the man walks the talk. He walks christlike. They tried to smear this man as well.

I wrote in a post yesterday, the cardboard cut-out of Pastor Wright. I know this man has to have many facets to his character, personality...we are just being shown a manufactured cardboard cutout of him. The McCarthy Witch-hunt.
