Obama’s Outrage

Obama’s sharp denunciation of Jeremiah Wright is good progress. And what was needed from the beginning to close off this story. When you’re running for president of the United States, you can’t voluntarily be associated with a guy who says, “God damn America.” Period.

Now the problem will be what did Obama know and when did he know it. That is, is he telling the truth about not having heard these things in church? I hope so, but somehow I can’t help but feel someone is going to come out of the woodwork on Fox News to say he was there. (After all, there are going to be a lot of people loyal to Wright who might be upset.)

The reality is, Obama must leave the church and apologize for his mistake in staying there. He must say he has seen the light.
