What Does This Pic Mean, Really?
When former Barack Obama spiritual adviser/pastor Rev. Jerimiah Wright's "scathing" sermons about America surfaced on YouTube last month, people thought it made Barack look bad. The people leading that charge was the Clinton camp. Saying that Barack being affiliated with such a man made him unfit to be president of the United States. Barack kicked Wright out his advisory board and began distancing himself from him. Then he followed it up with what many people are calling the "I Have A Dream" speech of this generation.
That was supposed to be the end of it, but then...
Rev. Wright kept talking. Now, at first, I had no problem with dude coming out and talking. I mean, he has every Wright (sorry, had to do it) to defend himself against the media's attacks. I mean, it wasn't like he was saying anything that hasn't been said in any Black household/school/family reunion/smoke session in America. Cool.
But, dude keeps talking. After a while, it goes from him trying to defend himself to trying to promote himself. Don't be surprised if we get treated to a Rev. Wright book before the election is over.
That said, when the above picture surfaced in the heat of the Clinton administrations attempts to paint him as a bad guy, it was ironic. How were the Clinton's trying to demonize a guy that they just had up in the White House?
But, a month or so later, I ask, what does that picture mean really? It starting to look like it means that Wright and the Clinton's are still down with each other. Every time Wright opens his mouth, he hurts Obama and helps Clinton. For him to be considered so "controversial" he sure is popping up all over the place now. I mean, everytime I log onto the internet I see this guy. Hell, I seem him more than the pastor of MY church.
The last time someone was considered "controversial" we only saw him talking on TV 2 or 3 times a year, if that.
So, what do you think? You think the Clinton's are putting the battery in his back and a knot in his pocket? Or you think dude is just talking too damn much?
