Obama Quits Trinity United

I posted this at The Next Right trying to be the first to break this story (which I was), so it doesn't exactly go into great detail or feature penetrating analysis. Still, here are a few of my thoughts.
Obama has officially resigned from Trinity United Church of Christ, apparently in the aftermath of Father Michael Pfleger's incendiary comments about Hillary Clinton and race. This really couldn't be better for Republicans--Obama will more or less have to admit that he attended a church that preached racism, people will wonder why he didn't leave Trinity a long time ago, Jeremiah Wright gets back into the news cycle, and Obama is forced into the defensive (again). Perfect.
UPDATE: Two observations about Obama's speech: a) he speaks much better with a Teleprompter (I'm watching the Q&A part), and b) he is wearing (gasp) a substitute for patriotism on his lapel. Hmmm.
UPDATE II: Obama refuses to denounce Trinity United: "I will not denounce the church. It is not a church worthy of denouncing." He says that the nation has seen "caricatures" of the church. Sorry, Obama, but direct quotes aren't "caricatures."

What ever happened to the separation of church and state? I really don't understand members of the clergy who publically endorse candidates or run for office themselves.

(Daniel, you scooped the story, huh? Good work!)

So Obama quits his Church today.. Big deal, what the hell took him so long? Did he have to wait until the whole world was talking and writing about it? It's just a bit to late Bambi, in fact it's twenty years too late, you're already indoctrinated into the fueling, inflammatory, hatred that you've listened to for that many years, and obviously supported, as you've mention; "Like I can't disown my white grandmother. You already told us that you can't disown your minister, Rev. Wright." But, you leave this very church due to a visiting pastor's derogatory remarks, does this truly hold water or make sense to anyone? It's like his wife Michelle stating; "I am now proud to be an American." What were you before this time? You were never proud of America before? Only now that your Husband has become the FIRST Black person to be the front runner to become the leader of the FREE world? Your weren’t proud of America when Pres. Reagan made that speech "Mr. Gorbachev Tear down that wall"?
Or when our troops invaded the Nazis concentration camps and freed ten’s of 1,000's of Jewish prisoners?
Didn't anything we ever do make you proud, you selfish little bitch!
Obama tells Oprah, I want to bring the troops into Africa, she endorses him, as her school in Africa will ultimately get military protection. This is where Obama's father lives.
Don't want to live in a militant state, I enjoy my liberties and freedom and don't wish to be dictated to, or subservient to anyone, nor to be discriminated against, or see my children or grandchildren or their children tortured, hated, or horrifically punished due to ignorant followers of hatred.
Who else do you have to push under the bus to get yourself in the limelight? And how long will it be until you throw America under the bus, and step on the gas?
Sorry folks but this guy scares me. his self-centered wife scares me.
Our Nation and the PC Liberals in it must be getting pretty damn desperate when someone like Obama can weasel his way into the Presidential race with no real agenda except his so called CHANGE bull shit. Change to what? Anyone cane say they want Change, sure who don’t. There is always room for change. It’s the radical change that I’m afraid of. The Change to bring out people like we’ve seen in his Rat’s nest of a Church into the daylight of US policies that I’m afraid of.
I don’t trust him and encourage everybody not to Would I rather see the lying Clinton’s back in power? Wow, that’s a really tough choice for an American to have to make.
I hate Hillary Clinton and I could never, ever tolerate her or her Husband and her little bitch of a Daughter either.
So even though I hate to repeat myself so much I’ll take John McCain, with or without his faults.. I can tell you one thing. No country on this earth will mess with us as long as John McCain is in office. And that’s pretty much it.
