If in their close twenty year association Obama was not able to move Rev. Wright off his divisive hatred and correct his many historical errors, why are we to suppose he could unite a nation, millions of whom didn't and would never vote for him?

Why should we believe his explanation for not acting earlier about Rev Wright when he's lied about what he knew and when?
SEN. BARACK OBAMA (D-IL), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: "Well, first of all, Anderson, you know, I strongly condemn the statements that have been shown on the tape.

I have to confess that those are not statements that I ever heard when I was sitting in the pews at this church. This is a church that I have been a member of for 20 years. This is a well-established, typical, historically African-American church in the South Side of Chicago, with a wonderful set of ministries.

And what I have been hearing and had been hearing in church was talk about Jesus and talk about faith and values and serving the poor."

Obama Speech, March 18th, 2008:

"Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes."

Why should we believe him now when he lied to us earlier about his connection with Rezko -- its duration, its nature and the amount of money he received from Rezko? Indeed, even now he blames corrupt pols while acknowledging he is one of them, having made numerous judgment errors respecting the purchase of his home, about which he was not forthcoming when the issues were first raised? And -- as bad -- he blames the plight of Blacks on slum landlords, ignoring that Rezko was one of them

Why should we care what he says unless he stands up and denounces as lies the Wright -- spread lies about America, AIDs, the Tuskegee experiment, our role in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, our efforts for peace and justice here and around the world?

Why should we vote for a man who doesn't even seem to understand that it was a long, brutal costly war that ended slavery -- a war won by white sacrifice -- not peace and nice chatter? And  a man who adopts a view which utterly ignores the role of Africans in creating and perpetuating that odious practice.

Why should we care what Obama says when at the same time he hints we cannot oppose his minister's lies and outrageous fomenting of race hate without being guilty of racism, and that the only way forward is to join him in "a long march" to socialism?.

He's a shuck-and-jiving community left wing organizer on the make. No savior.
