Rev. Wright Is Obama's Straw Man

Reverend Jeremiah Wright threw himself under the bus so that Obama could make a clean break with him and put the issue behind him in the campaign. Wright's speech at the National Press Club was way over the top on purpose, so that Obama would have the space to break with him and not look like someone who had deserted a friend. Wright is an intelligent, dedicated pastor, and long time advocate for social justice. He is a hero to many including gay people on account of his courageous stands for social justice. He knows what he is doing. He made another courageous sacrifice for his friend and former church member Obama. No one will ever convince me that this is not what actually happened. How else could Obama neutralize the Wright issue and counter what would have been an endless replay of the Reverend's sermons by McCain Republicans. Obama and Wright are smart men. They know what they are doing.

So too does Ms. Clinton, who joined McCain in the shameless pandering to the American public over gasoline prices. Lifting the federal gas tax for the summer is not the answer to America's problem with oil dependency, and they know it. Clinton and McCain are a disgrace. Obama gets credit big time for opposing Clinton's and McCain's disgusting political pandering.
