Whether out of ego or animosity Revered Wright’s speech on Monday likely cost Barack Obama the election in the fall. It is too late for Hillary Clinton to come up from behind, so Barack Obama will be the presumptive nominee AND the downfall of the Democratic party for the next four years.

“Answering questions submitted by reporters on Monday, Wright praised Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as “one of the most important voices in the 20th and 21st century,” and said it’s possible that the US government created the AIDS virus and introduced it into the black community. He also said he’s become a victim of “unfair accusations taken from soundbites” that have developed into an “attack on the black church launched by people who know nothing about the African-American religious tradition.”

Most of America was convinced that Reverend Wright was crazy but not Barack Obama. This is what he says today:

“I’m outraged by the comments that were made and saddened by the spectacle. The person that I saw yesterday was not the person I met 20 years ago. His comments were not only divisive and destructive, but they end up giving comfort to those who prey on hate. I believe they do not accurately portray the perspective of the black church. They certainly don’t portray mine. If he considers this political posturing, then he doesn’t know me very well. And I don’t know him well either.”

But let’s not forget what he said last month when we heard about Reverend Wright “This man is like an uncle to me, he married me to my wife…” So it took 20 years for him to call his reverend crazy and we are supposed to believe him now? He says he can get out of Iraq immediately, to that I say will it take 20 years to see the problem. Speeches and rhetoric are not enough we need a president with substance and the will to shun evil immediately not when it is politically expedient.
