Obama on His Christianity & His Pastor

Well today Obama is going to try to lie his way out of this one. He gives a speech on "race" today. Let's see what his team of speech writers can come up with.

He will have to address the issue of his pastor. He can't write off someone whose church you've attended for over two decades - who married you and your wife and baptized your children - as a “crazy old uncle.” Not when he’s cursing our country and accusing us of terrorism. Wright built the Trinity United Church of Christ. When he was hired there in 1971 it was a small church. Now he has built it into a huge congregation of racists. It’s his church, and Obama’s attendance of it is a tacit endorsement of Wright’s message of hatred and racial division.

There’s just no way around that.
