Senator Barack Obama, quoted by Matthew Continetti in the May 12th Weekly Standard:
* "These days, [Obama] says, he attends the 11 a.m. Sunday service at Trinity . . . every week.. . . His pastor, Wright, has become a close confidant." (Chicago Sun-Times, April 5, 2004)

* "'Senator Obama is proud of his pastor and his church.'" (Obama campaign statement reported in the New York Times, April 30, 2007)

* "[Wright] is like an old uncle who sometimes will say things I don't agree with." (February 25, 2008)

* "I don't think that my church is actually particularly controversial." (March 2, 2008)

* "I can no more disown [Wright] than I can disown the black community." (March 18, 2008)

* "I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened over the spectacle that we saw yesterday.. . . The person I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago." (April 29, 2008)

Thanks for catching this. I've been looking for some of these quotes for some time.

You are welcome. Though I've gone back-and-forth, at this moment, I see Hillary as less bad compared with Obama. You?

Hillary has substance. She is intelligent, hardworking, productive of results that are effective at improving lives of people and represents more significant, powerfully positive change then the person with the good speaking voice and nice suits who listened to, heard and agreed with his very close Pastor or did not. Black people voting for a black man because he is black are as racist as any other racists and certainly not morally superior to other racists.
