Barack O-Blah-Blah-Blah-ma

PLAINFIELD, Ind. -- Sen. Barack Obama on Saturday decried "the forces of division" over race that he said are intruding into the Democratic presidential nomination contest.

"We have to come together," he told a town-hall meeting at a high school.

He cited videos of inflammatory sermons given by his pastor that are now being used as political ammunition against him — remarks that Obama has denounced.

"If all I knew were those statements I saw on television, I would be shocked," Obama said.

Obama suggested that more and more is being made of racial divisions as his contest with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton heats up.

"I noticed over the last several weeks that the forces of division have started to raise their ugly heads again. And I'm not here to cast blame or point fingers because everybody, you know, senses that there's been this shift," Obama said.

"It reminds me: We've got a tragic history when it comes to race in this country. We've got a lot of pent-up anger and bitterness and misunderstanding. ... This country wants to move beyond these kinds of things."

No kidding.

Obama's pal Jeremiah Wright is the personification of bitterness and anger.

This country does want to move beyond these kinds of things.

That's why we're so disgusted that Obama has chosen a pastor spewing such divisive, poisonous rhetoric to be his spiritual mentor.

How hypocritical of Obama to say that the "forces of division have started to raise their ugly heads again"!

Obama and his family attend a church immersed in division and hate!

His campaign fostered forces of division by having Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. serve on Obama's African American Religious Leadership Committee.

It's such political BS for Obama to try to twist his scandal into a condemnation of others.

The forces of division over race that Obama decries are forces that he embraces.

The vitriol preached by Obama's spiritual mentor needed to be exposed. It's completely appropriate for Wright and Obama's relationship to be explored. The fact that he financially supports a church as divisive as the Trinity United Church of Christ is something that voters should know about it.

Obama is right. We have to come together.

People like Wright and his congregation are obstacles to unity.

Sure blame Obama for what others say.Hillarys plan isn't working the people have spoken.Although I disagree with his pastors feelings its not Obama's. and for Miss geraldine F.(black man statement) and also Hillary(Dr,King statement)like I said people are smarter than a quick race card for division.We do want change not another four years of Clinton.I mean sure if you like sex scandals,and her husband(PRESIDENT CLINTON)lying to the public yeah the public including Mrs.Clinton so if thats what folks want in the white house along with the million dollar runway haircuts and renting out the white house to the rich then vote Hillary but the people are speaking in droves for change and if you actually listen to Obama and not others then maybe you can feel what the people are saying.....CHANGE...CHANGE

I am not sure that Obama is the right person to lead our country, if he or anyone else believes that race is not a factor they are crazy.. I recently went to a caucus here in Denver and was told "It is our time now.." I asked Why?
A black man as president. I asked if they could convince me that he was the right person that I would think about voting for him..silence followed..then these black men gave me a history lesson on black suffering in our country and that it was no longer going to be them but the Mexican who was now to be discriminated for Mr. Obama to say that he did not know his pastor had these view..after 20 years of knowing the man is hard to believe..racism is alive and well here and we all know it and I believe that what Ms Ferrero said has some ring of truth..blacks are voting for a black, qualfied or not. I for one am also tired of the sexual escapades of any political party..I worry more about the economy, insurance, etc..and I don't want another learn as you go president, and what do the the endorsee ecpect from Obama?? Did he make promises? I have 2 choices should Obama become the nominee..Don't vote or vote republican..
