    "A candidate who stands haplessly by as his former spiritual guide roams the country dropping one divisive bomb after another is in very little danger of being seen by most voters as the next J.F.K. or L.B.J. . . . The apparent helplessness of the Obama campaign in the face of the Wright onslaught contributes to the growing perception of the candidate as weak, as someone who is unwilling or unable to fight aggressively on his own behalf."

    Obama can't even handle his own middle name.

    If a black president is what guilt-plagued liberals want couldnt they have chosen someone with some fortitude and some inner essential parts? This is the biggest crybaby that ever ran for president. McCain will eat him alive.

    What just happened is a sure sign that he is a major hazard for our White House....He stood behind his Pastor until his cronies told him it was bad to do so, so now he denounces his Pastor and denies believeing what his Pastor has been preaching for years. (and don't think for one minute I agree with Rev Wright and his tirades)

    Why did he continue to go to that church if he didn't agree with what his Pastor preached? Obama is a LIAR. He does believe what he was taught by Wright.

    Wright's church preaches reverse discrimination. Folks, are we in America or not? Then stop with all the African Kwaanza and such. I spent 2 weeks in Africa and never heard the word Kwaanza. I DID see a strong Islamic presence though.....hmmm....

    Celebrate a risen and living Savior ONLY.

    And a different Christ? (Wright preaches this) Whoops, that's what false religions preach.

    I feel the same way about big Cinco de Mayo celebrations and Mexican flag-waving. I don't go to Mexico or Africa and wave an American flag!!! I wouldn't make it home! Why do we allow that here? We are losing this country by allowing such. I don't care it this is politically correct, folks.

    Let's face it, we are surrendering this nation if we elect Obama! You all better get out there and get the legitimate vote in. They (the Obama people) are signing up totally illiterate people who have never voted before to make sure that they win.

    Notwithstanding other considerations, the fact that Mr. Obama stayed in the church is not really evidence of any sympathies with the teachings of the pastor. Many of us are in the exact same situations - members of churches that we think are going astray. We choose to stay and work from within to bring the church back into line.

    The references to Mr. Obama's middle name are deeply cynical attempts to tar him with the stink of either Saddam Hussein and / or fundamentalist Islam. Obedient Christians should speak out against this tactic.

    Amen to that! It always is spouted by the usual suspects. Plus, they always forget about our staunch ally, His Majesty, the late King Hussein of Jordan.

    They're all politicians. Obama, Clinton, Mc'Cain. They'll do, say, and promise anything to get elected.

    They're all promising to bring down the price of gas as soon as their butts land on the seat behind the desk at the Oval Office.

    Yeah, right.

    Not if Senator Clinton wins the nomination.

    Besides, Senator McCain has plenty of weaknesses that will be exploited by the Democrats during the general election campaign. He is basically getting a free ride at the moment. That will end in June. I feel confident that either Democrat can win and save our nation from the debacle of a John McCain presidency.

    Not so. That "award" goes to Edmund Muskie.

    That is not true. The situation changed after Pastor Wright's NPC appearance on Monday morning.

    In my opinion, the NPC appearance was the straw that broke the camel's back.

    It was the cumulative effect. There are situations where we finally have to let a loved one or friend stew in his/her own juices.

    From what I am reading this might have been good for Obama. Many thought he had no backbone and didn't deal well with conflict and the tough decisions. Speaking out about his former pastor showed he does have a little backbone.

    The polls are saying those who supported him before still support him and the ones who are speaking against him were never going to vote for him anyway (like this forum). He also picked up another couple of super delegates today.
