Obama's speech made me miss Mitt all the more...
Obama spent his entire speech making excuses for his pastor! It was pathetic. He added nothing to the national conversation about race or religion. His speech will never be cited or quoted. It just wasn't inspiring!
Here is a particularly uninspiring quote:
I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy. For some, nagging questions remain. Did I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy? Of course. 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 - just as I'm sure many of you have heard remarks from your pastors, priests, or rabbis with which you strongly disagreed.
Yeah...not so much Obama. I haven't heard anything from my church leaders with which I disagreed. I especially haven't heard anything with which I have strongly disagreed! Stop trying to assume that your weird situation is typical. The fact is, most of us go to church to hear the word of the Lord. Most of us don't hear controversial sermons at church. If we did, we may have to find another church!
I don't think that I will be able to handle hearing this guy give speeches for four years. Thank you Obama...I am now finding some passion for the John McCain campaign.
