"Had the reverend not retired, and had he not acknowledged that what he had said had deeply offended people and were inappropriate and mischaracterized what I believe is the greatness of this country, for all its flaws, then I wouldn't have felt comfortable staying at the church," Obama said Thursday during a taping of the ABC talk show, "The View."Evidently that's what Obama will say on Friday's "The View", and with a straight face, although according to rumors there's an embarrassing shot of his nose growing grotesquely longer towards the end.
Now, some may be shocked that such a lousy liar could 1) still be in the running for president and 2) be on the verge of getting away with such an obvious pile of manure. But let's keep an open mind and stop with the typical thinking, shall we? Bill and Hillary have been getting away with the same crapola for decades and their net result has been a Presidency, Senate seat, and millions of dollars in speaking fees and book royalties. It's high time they changed the guard.
Tom Maguire summarizes the blow back from Obama's "sexy" appearance on The View (apparently Obama got Brad Pitt's sex gene but skipped Cheney's warmonger gene) and calls "BS!". Many of us in the VRWC beat him to it late last night with only a snippet to work with, but kudos to him for at least waiting for the show to air before opening fire.
The question seems to be whether Wright apologized or not. Barack didn't say he did, only that the reverend had "acknowledged" that his words were offensive. Maguire wonders "when"--come to think of it, I don't recall seeing or hearing the good reverend disown his own comments, either.
Matter of fact, where is he? Seems a few questions about whether Barack's "forceful, honest, truthful" replies were on the mark would be most entertaining. Hmmm, maybe we should be looking under buses. Again.
