It is absolutely nothing but lies. He "worked" with Bill, you mean he was briefly on the same board involved in education grants, where at the time Bill was described as a "toothless ex radical and distinguished professor OF EDUCATION." Wow that sounds like they were plotting all kinds of scary things. And again, no his career did not start in Bill's living room, once again obvious misinformation from political ads. Bill and Obama briefly met at a dinner party, in a home which WAS NOT Bill's, with several other prominent Democratic political leaders including standing senators and famous Rabbi's. The truth is that Obama started his political campaign in Chicago and if he bound to meet Bill Ayers eventually. However even regardless of Obama meeting Ayers...who cares? Everything Bill Ayers did that could be considered horrible was done when Obama was 8 years old. Are you actually trying to make the connection that because Obama met Bill Ayers a few times and they "knew" of each other that Obama had adopted the same radical ideas Bill Ayers had when he was 8 years old? No, that's completely ignorant and its an obvious guilty by association tactic used time and time again by Fox news.



    If you even understood the slightest, tiniest bit of history of how blacks have been treated in this country for the last 200 years then you would understand that black people, especially a preacher has every right in the world to be furious with white people. The reality is that the campaign add took the worst two minutes from those 20 years and tried to make it look like those sermons were a regular thing. Was Obama ever shown to be present at any of these sermons? No. Has he ever showed even the slightest bit of racism towards white people? No. Has he condemned Wright for his racist remarks and radical comments? Yes. Has he left the church to show that he is not in favor of such comments? Yes. Once again, what are you trying to show? That somehow by attending this church he's adopted a racist attitude towards white people? Has Obama ever said anything or done anything that would have shown otherwise that he indeed was racist? No.



    No you won't leave the rest of my "crap" for other people to finish. You'll just show how lazy you are. The truth is that Fox news and Republican campaign strategists are in the business of SMEARING their opponents. They won't try to logically and soundly argue policies, credentials and ideas. Well guess what happened this time with those tactics? They lost.
    Sonny, you believe whatever you want to believe, the majority of us ceased believing in the tooth fairy many years ago.

    It's not about Wright, it's about the fact that our president attended his church for 20 years, befriended him, and considered him to be his spiritual mentor.

    Wright is a racist idiot.... there's nothing special about that. The fact our president embraced the man and his views is what this is all about.

    The Rev Wright story was great when nobody knew anything about Obama and people tried to portray Obama as a pleasant speaking Nigerian Muslim Socialist who had hatred for America. Its a non-story now and claiming that there was a conspiracy based on e-mail sounds alot like climategate of recent times. You can almost bet that most of these messages are taken out of context--the whole right wing smear is starting to be a too familiar strategy. Otherwise, why not publish all the messages of the e-mails? I really don't want to take some clown's word for it and find out six months later that they selected a few e-mail messages out of context. That's pretty easy to do.

    It's also about the fact that the MSM tried to black out the Wright story during the campaign. They went as far as suggesting that whenever it came up, change the subject and call them (Karl Rove, Fred Barnes) whoever racists. Jounalism really did die in 2008. They didn't act as journalists, they were doing whatever they could to get their guy elected, and to hell with the truth.
    They also ignored the Bill Ayers story, which I thought was a lot more damning than Wright. And what about being mentored by Frank Marshall Davis. I really think if the Media would have investigated Obama and his past like they did Palin, Obama wouldn't be president today. Hillary would be.
