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.
