Obama: Rev Wright is ‘An Occasionally Fierce Critic of American Domestic and Foreign Policy’
Everyone wants to talk about Barack Obama’s speech; here’s the video, so we have everything completely in context. I doubt this is going to end the controversy, because we still don’t know where Obama stands on any of the very specific issues raised by Rev. Wright and his hate speech. Obama believes he can get away with vaguely calling Wright’s statements “fierce criticism of US policy,” and I don’t think that’s going to fly with the majority of Americans.
And please note that Obama admits he was lying when he said he never heard Rev. Wright utter these “fierce criticisms.” Are we supposed to just glide right past that?
