How many times must one repeat something before somebody out there takes a fresh look from a fresh perspective. The human brain does tend to get stuck when it comes to opinions and needs a reboot, hopefully opening up some much needed Random Access Memory.
Barack Obama has been dragged over hot coals this week because of things his Pastor, Jeremiah Wright said. Yes, it is his pastor. Yes, this pastor married Barrack and his wife, as well as performed baptisms on his children. Does that mean that Barrack is the Charlie McCarthy to his pastors Edgar Bergen. No, I don’t think so.
I’ll compare it to this: George Bush is my President. He is an authority figure. He makes life or death decisions that affect my life every day. He is sending me a check in May that I am supposed to spend on new electronic toys (or something like that) to stimulate the economy. Does that mean that I agree with everything George Bush says or does? Does it mean he represents me and my viewpoints when he talks to other Americans, Congress, or people in other countries? Absolutely not!
So can we put this to rest and start talking about the issues of this election. I can’t remember the last time that the media talked about the Presidential candidates and their ideas on the devalued American dollar, unemployment, gas prices, national security, or the Iraq War.
Barrack Obama has “denounced” (is that strong enough for you Hillary or must he say “denounce and reject”, I can’t remember) the statements of Pastor Wright to which he does not agree. What else can he say. The pastor never claimed to speak on Obama’s behalf, and Obama never said the Pastor was speaking on his behalf. So let’s listen to what Obama, himself, says and not what others say. He’s got a good message. Listen to that and tune out all the stuff that doesn’t add up to a hill of beans.
And as for Antoin Rezko, Hillary Clinton should be the last person on earth to question someone’s former real estate dealings. Can you say White Water? She should know better. If she and her husband were guilty of any wrong doing, she should know what it’s like to try and cover it up. And if they were not guilty in the least, she should know what it’s like to try and defend yourself against things that were blown out of proportion for political purposes.
