Video: Obama Lavishes Praise on Rev. Jeremiah Wright
Here’s Barack Obama on June 5, 2007, at Hampton University, praising Rev. Jeremiah Wright in such an effusive way that it’s obvious they were personally very close. It strains credulity (snap! was that my credulity breaking?) to maintain that Obama has only recently become aware of Wright’s more “inflammatory” statements.

YouTube didn’t pull the clip, despite the dire red warning banner; it’s showing up now.
