Change: Obama's Evolving Positions On His G-Damning Pastor
Andrew Bolt discovered a couple of controversial statements on the evolving Obama. I added a couple more.
Barack Obama is tripping over himself trying to explain why he kept race-bigot Jeremiah Wright as his pastor, mentor and advisor for so many years.
** Last year:
“I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial,” Obama said at a community meeting in Nelsonville, Ohio, earlier this month.
** March 15– 10 days ago:
“When I saw these statements which I had heard for the first time. Then I thought it was clear that I had to make a clear and unequivocal statement. None of these statements were ones that I had heard myself personally in the pews. One of them I had heard about after I had started running for president…”
** March 18– Last week:
Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes. Did I strongly disagree with many of his political views? Absolutely…
** March 20– Thursday:
“I told him (Wright) that I profoundly disagreed with his positions… And my belief was that given that he was about to retire, that for me to make a political statement respecting my church at that time wasn’t necessary.”
** March 23– Sunday:
I haven’t been going to church. I wasn’t hearing a lot of these comments. The ones that are most offensive are ones that I never knew about until they were reported on. I had had conversations with him in the past – in fact from the day I first met him — about some of his views.
CHANGE We Can Believe In!
