"I am outraged by the comments that were made, and saddened over the spectacle that we saw yesterday," he said. "You know, I have been a member of Trinity United Church of Christ since 1992. I have known Reverend Wright for almost 20 years. The person I saw yesterday was not the person I met 20 years ago."He means to tell us that he's been listening to Wright's hate speeches for 20 years but it is now that he finds all his statements outrageous. Sure, I'll buy that.
But it gets even more interesting, with Wright saying that Obama only distancing himself from him to fool the whitey.
At Tuesday's news conference, Obama explicitly rejected Wright's statements as "ridiculous." He said he was particularly angry that Wright suggested he was only distancing himself from the comments for political purposes.And after making this strongly worded statement he added:
"And if Reverend Wright thinks that is 'political posturing', as he put it, then he does not know me very well," he added. "And based on his remarks yesterday, I may not know him as well as I thought either."
