Bimbo Eruptions vs Radical America-Hating Liberal Eruptions

Christopher Hitchens' latest column in Slate states: "In April 2004, Barack Obama told a reporter from the Chicago Sun-Times that he had three spiritual mentors or counselors: Jeremiah Wright, James Meeks, and Father Michael Pfleger -- for a change of pace, a white Catholic preacher who has a close personal feeling for the man he calls (as does Obama) Minister Farrakhan."

Bimbo Eruptions vs Radical America-Hating Liberal Eruptions

The last time the Democrat Party was placed under the societal microscope during a period of political consideration for the highest office in the Free World, it was Bill Clinton and the 1992 presidential elections.

Way back then, character was somewhat important to the voting populous and it seemed that everytime we flipped on the tube to get caught up on the events of the day, we were treated to the sexual indiscretions and behavior of Bill Clinton as recalled by Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, and Juanita Broadderick almost stopped the eventual Clinton era from happening. While in office, we all were treated to a disgusting display of philandering of the man and it tainted what would have been remembered as a mostly politically successful presidency – unlike the presidency of Jimmy Carter.

Bill Clinton was fully impeached while in office in his second term over his behavior. While he was not removed, he was stripped of his law license and the whole process made most people feel numbed to politics in general. Collectively we asked ourselves, why can’t people at least attempt to perform at their highest self as opposed to lowering the bar and live at a gutter level. Bimbo eruptions were the order of the day for the two-terms of the Clinton presidency.

In 2008, we all are, again, asked to ignore and accept the philosophical character of the current presumptive candidate the Democrat Party is putting up for the office of President of the United States. Barack Obama holds himself out to be a new type of politician … he is post-racial, a clean living and upstanding family man, and works hard for the betterment of ALL mankind. He is credited with ushering in a new brand of politics. The problem is, that when one begins to look at what has informed Barack Obama, at nearly 48 years old, for the last twenty years of his adult life, one sees a cast of characters that predominately Hate America, and express a separatist, racist attitude toward anyone other than the institutions they come from. Reverend Jeremiah Wright, William (Bill) Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, and now Father Michael Pfleger have all surfaced and have either been held up and sited as friends or worse, mentors and lifesource guides by Barack Obama through his journey in adult life and Chicago area politics.

The latest of these eruptive episodes of discovery happened a little over one week ago when Father Michael Pfleger took to the pulpit of the church that Obama claimed as his own for the last twenty years (the one he was married to Michelle in, the one that his kids were baptized, and educated on “Christianity” in), and vividly mocked white people and called America “the greatest sin against God.”


Barack Obama’s response, after sitting in the pews of this church for the last twenty years, naming Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Father Michael Pfleger to his campaign steering committee and sighting them as spiritual advisors, was to hold a press conference to announce his family’s withdrawal of membership to the Trinity United Church of Christ.

We have to ask, does this automatically end the direction and education of Barack Obama for the last twenty year span of time and influence?

Obama the Ditherer
Posted by Dean Barnett on June 2, 2008 08:39 AM

Over the weekend, Barack Obama gave his best Roberto Duran “No Más” impersonation and divorced himself from Trinity United Church, however belatedly. The proximate cause was a sermon given at the church last Sunday by his longtime friend, Father Michael Pfleger.
----
Of course, the big question most people will ask is did Obama associate with people like Pfleger and the equally kooky Reverend Wright because he saw in them fellow travelers or did he do so out of political expedience. Personally, I go with the latter. Although I don’t care for Obama’s politics and consider him unprepared to be president, I believe the reports of virtually everyone who’s known him that he’s a decent guy.
----
If Obama acted decisively on this matter 18 months ago, it wouldn’t be a major issue today. And yet he tacked the opposite direction with his racial reconciliation speech:


Given my background, my politics, and my professed values and ideals, there will no doubt be those for whom my statements of condemnation are not enough. Why associate myself with Reverend Wright in the first place, they may ask? Why not join another church? And I confess that if all that I knew of Reverend Wright were the snippets of those sermons that have run in an endless loop on the television and You Tube, or if Trinity United Church of Christ conformed to the caricatures being peddled by some commentators, there is no doubt that I would react in much the same way….

Like other predominantly black churches across the country, Trinity embodies the black community in its entirety - the doctor and the welfare mom, the model student and the former gang-banger. Like other black churches, Trinity’s services are full of raucous laughter and sometimes bawdy humor. They are full of dancing, clapping, screaming and shouting that may seem jarring to the untrained ear. The church contains in full the kindness and cruelty, the fierce intelligence and the shocking ignorance, the struggles and successes, the love and yes, the bitterness and bias that make up the black experience in America.


With these comments, Obama wed himself to Trinity United for the duration of the campaign.

For better or for worse.

And the whole reason was because he seemingly lacks the capacity for decisive action. He prefers talking to doing. And he prefers ambiguity to clarity.

These are not desirable qualities for a President.

Will Tony Rezko be the next “Radical Eruption” (his trial is set to end soon) to visit the campaign for Barack Obama … or is there another America Hating Priest or Terrorist waiting in the wings to take away the spotlight on Rezko’s apparent corruption of Barack Obama?

One has to ask … What in his life will Obama have to disavow or give up next in order to become President?

We are all just sitting here on the road to Carter’s Second Term!
