The issues that remain concern Barack Obama’s judgment and his credibility.
If Pastor Wright agrees to be interviewed by other than Bill Moyers, the questions should ask not for his opinions on various controversies, but for facts about his relationship with the senator.
For instance, did Pastor Wright discuss Louis Farrakhan with Obama before during or after they both attended the Million Man March? Were they together during that trip. Did Senator Obama indicated unease with or criticism of Farrakhan?
How often did you see Obama at Trinity on Sunday over the past twenty years? Any particular dates you can recall with certainty? Do you have your sermons from those days on which you are certain Obama was present?
Did you appear at non-church events together? Did you ever discuss William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn? Tony Rezko?
Wright can destroy Obama’s general election chances with one serious interview, and the New York Post suggests the rebuked reverend may be in a mood to do so, especially after being slammed for his “rants” yesterday:
The Post has learned. “After 20 years of loving Barack like he was a member of his own family, for Jeremiah to see Barack saying over and over that he didn’t know about Jeremiah’s views during those years, that he wasn’t familiar with what Jeremiah had said, that he may have missed church on this day or that and didn’t hear what Jeremiah said, this is seen by Jeremiah as nonsense and betrayal,” said the source, who has deep roots in Wright’s Chicago community and is familiar with his thinking on the matter.
