It saddens me to see how Rev.Wright has taken this whole thing and turned it into a ongoing spectacle and opportunity for his own glory and fame. I am the first to agree with many things that he has said in his sermons and lectures of here lately but I disagree with his timing. Let us get Obama into the whitehouse and then we can look at the truths of this nation and how to repair it.

As a messenger of Black Liberation Theology, Rev. Wright should realize the importance and significance of having a black man so close to becoming this nations leader. He should understand first hand the dangers of division and discord and should appreciate how Obama has brought peoples of all races and classes together in this powerful new movement for change under his nomination. Instead of doing whatever he must to clear the path for Obama and to help people unite and bring change he has greedily grabbed the mainstream media's attention for his own glorification.

In the black liberation movement and a lot of other movements I have seen this same old problem rise up again and again. Rev. Wright has had his day, he has his legacy and yes he has spoken many truths but it is time to pass the baton. Why not help one of his bright and shining church members establish their legacy?

Instead of quietly removing himself from the paths of mainstream media he has beat a dusty trail to them seeking his few minutes of fame. This time next year no one will remember his name because the media will have moved on to many other typical "Rev.Wright's". I ask is the few moments of mainstream media attention worth ruining the nations chance at great leadership and change?

I too believe as Newt G. that Rev.Wright is on a path to destroy Obama. I honestly believe that he has been bought either by Clinton, republicans or corporate. Obama is no dummy and I'm willing to bet that he too has seen that something is wrong with Rev.Wrights sudden love affair with mainstream media.

I never once gave up on Obama and I know that his enemies are planning far worse for him but I am prepared to support Obama to victory. I am proud that he has made a conscious decision to spank Rev.Wright. He tried diplomacy and it didn't work and now he has to do what is best for his campaign and vision for this nation. This is the kind of President I want in office and the kind of leadership I will support.
