Saying What He Has to Say

Whoops! The Rev did it again.

From Rev. Wright's upcoming PBS interview with Bill Moyers:


In the 20 years that you've been his pastor, have you ever heard him repeat any of your controversial statements as his opinion?


No. No. No. Absolutely not.

I don't talk to him about politics. And so he had a political event, he goes out as a politician and says what he has to say as a politician. I continue to be a pastor who speaks to the people of God about the things of God.

[emphasis mine].

Wright went on to elaborate:

“He’s a politician, I’m a pastor,” he said. “We speak to two different audiences. And he says what he has to say as a politician. I say what I have to say as a pastor. But they’re two different worlds.”

He added, “I do what I do. He does what politicians do. So that what happened in Philadelphia where he had to respond to the sound bytes, he responded as a politician.”

Gentlemen of the press -- start your engines.

In other words, Obama is lying to us, telling us comforting things he doesn't really believe.

Isn't this pretty much what Rev. William Sloane Coffin, the radical Yale cleric, said about Bill Clinton -- that he would say anything that would get him elected, regardless of what he believed.

At the least, this suggests that rather than representing a new style of politics, Obama is just another Clintonoid creep.
