Obama’s Planned Denunciation

To me, Obama is one the most cynical politicians I’ve ever come across. The “Mitt Romney” of the Democrats, if you will. The last paragraph of this article doesn’t make me trust Obama any more (h/t commenter at Corrente):

“If Barack gets past the primary, he might have to publicly distance himself from me,” Mr. Wright said with a shrug. “I said it to Barack personally, and he said yeah, that might have to happen.”

If Obama is so willing to do something like this to someone who is supposed to be a friend, what can we expect out of him as president?

Update: I don’t think I was very clear. Wright’s quote indicates that sooner or later Obama was going to “distance” himself from Wright (or denounce him). Coincidentally, with Wright becoming a drag on the general electorate as well as Democratic primary voters, it’s seems like a perfect time to denounce Wright. If this was planned–and its getting hard for me to see otherwise–than it says a lot about what Obama is willing to do with friends.

One Response to Obama’s Planned Denunciation

  1. Janis says:

    If he knew he had national political ambitions, he should have distanced himself in the first five minutes.

    The whole things smells to me as if he wanted the quickest way to establish a black identity for himself that required as little effort on his part as possible. He could either havE:

    1) sat in church for twenty years, or
    2) worked his ass off for the black community as many serious black leaders have done.

    He chose the first — minimum effort, maximum return. No wonder his supporters are obsessed with gaming teh rulz and doing The Math. Obama’s been doing mental math for as long as he can remember. “What’s the most I can get out of this situation for the least effort on my part?” is what he’s been thinking all along.
