Obama finally gets it Wright....

....But, it may be a little too late. That's what presidential candidate Barack Obama has done by coming out on Tuesday. When Obama says, "That's enough" according to news article by FoxNews, he is essentially turning his back on his friend and pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright . After many weeks of hearing in the media, the Obamas' family pastor of twenty years, ranting about how he blames our country for various things. The Rev., who married the couple some years ago, has recently said that "the United States brought terrorism upon itself by committing like acts overseas, and he did not back down from a claim that the U.S. government was responsible for afflicting the black community with HIV."

The question remains, Why did it take Obama so long? Is his candidacy in such a quandry that he finds it politically necessary only to dis Rev. Wright now? and How long will it be before Obama is called an Uncle Tom by some? Regardless, Obama has an albatross around his neck. Will he be able to shake it off before it is too late for the nomination? He certainly has lost his shine and glimmer of being the beacon of hope and change.
It's my contention that the serious, hardcore Obama supporter doesn't care if Obama has a plan for change or not. He hasn't produced one. I'm not convinced that the hardcore Obama supporter cares if he associates with the Reverend Wright or William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, the Weather Underground terrorists of the 1960’s. They will vote for him regardless.
