Pastor Wright Counterattacks

Monday, April 28, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The coverage of Pastor Wright’s National Press Club speech agrees that this is very bad for Senator Obama.

Comprehensive coverage of Pastor Wright from the Chicago Sun Times’ Lynne Sweet.

The audio and transcripts of Pastor Wright’s September 16, 2001 and April 13, 2003 sermons are posted here.

UPDATE: Byron York comments:

The audacity of Obama’s speech on race was to embrace Rev. Wright more closely, not to distance himself from the “controversial” preacher. “I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community,” Obama said of Wright. “I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother…These people are a part of me.”

He’s gonna have a harder time continuing to embrace Wright after this morning’s performance at the Press Club question-and-answer session. Wright is a continuing disaster for Obama.

Geraghty adds: “The Obama campaign is off the rails.”
