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