Moments ago, Sen. Barack Obama finally acknowledged what the rest of the country has known for months. Jeremiah Wright’s statements are “a bunch of rants that aren’t grounded in truth”.
Sounding absolutely whiney, Sen. Obama complained that Rev. Wright questioned his beliefs before the National Press Club, showing “disrespect to me”. He insisted that he was shocked by Rev. Wright’s “performance” yesterday and said that he might not know Rev. Wright “as well as I thought”. He also claimed that Rev. Wright was “never my spiritual mentor. … He was my pastor.”
In short, Sen. Obama displayed himself once again to be as unfit for the presidency as Rev. Wright is for the pulpit.
