Wright when Obama thought it was over
Wow, a lot of thanks Obama is getting for not throwing his pastor under the bus. Now the Reverend Jeremiah Wright is about to go through a round of interviews and speeches, drudging up the controversy over his fiery sermons again. Early previews indicate he has some not-so-nice things to say about Obama too. This is surely the last thign Obama needs.
Barack Obama's biggest headache is back.
His lightning-rod former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, is poised to reignite one of the most damaging controversies for the presidential candidate by jumping into the spotlight with a PBS interview Friday night and a Washington speech next week.
Wright said the media coverage of his incendiary sermons has been "unfair," "unjust," "untrue" and "devious," according to interview excerpts.
He said Obama responded like a "politician" to the flap.
"I do what I do. He does what politicians do," Wright declared.
"So that's what happened in Philadelphia where he had to respond to the sound bites, he responded as a politician," Wright said.
