Illinois Senator Barak Obama seems to have all any political warrior would want. He is well funded, he has charisma, his message is tailored to people who have been disenchanted with the policy of President George W. Bush. As such Senator Obama should walk away with the Democratic Presidential nomination and be a heavy favorite to win the White House in November.

However, Senator Obama, like the great warrior Achilles of old, has a weakness. Achilles's weakness sprung from his heels, which were supposedly held by his mother as she dipped him in the supposed holy sea water to be protected. Obama’s weakness is his personal pastor. Achilles seemed invincible, but a shot to his heel brought him down in the heat of battle. Obama is now remindeful of that historic and literary event.

For twenty years Barak Obama sat in the pews, or at least kept up membership in the church led by Rev. Jeremiah Wright. In that pulpit, Rev. Wright spewed more political rhetoric than religious teachings. The youtube generation is on to it. One of the best summations of Rev. Wright and Obama can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36T1fnIafC0

Rev. Wright went on to speak out at the National Press Club recently, daring to compare the criticism of his remarks to the Black Church led by the likes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His was remarks were both shameful and shameless in their nature. Martin Luther King never said the GD word from the pulpit.

Senator Obama did the right thing and condemned the remarks of his personal pastor. But, there are questions to be answered. Why did it take Barak Obama 20 years to learn his pastor spewed out such speech? Indeed, NBC news reported that Oprah Winfrey, a big Obama supporter, left Rev. Wright’s flock some years ago. Why didn’t the Senator do the same?

Democrats have a hard enough time trying to woo middle of the road white voters to their cause without the likes of Rev. Wright as a factor. Rev. Wright can likely not help Senator Obama win the White House, but his continued rhetoric can keep Obama from the White House. That begs another question, just what is Rev. Wright really after? Does he want to undermine the campaign of one his flock who has now disowned him? Like the old Greek king of old, Rev. Wright seems all too ready to sacrifice one his own out of jealousy and spite. It is almost as if he is telling people to aim for the ankle.

  3. "In that pulpit, Rev. Wright spewed more political rhetoric than religious teachings."

    Do you have any proof of that? You can't make that statement unless every sermon he gave for the past 20 years has been analyzed.

    Also, what is your definition of political rhetoric vs religious teachings?

    No BS McCarty, let's stick to facts.
