Wright and Wrong

The Daily Caller obtained this video clip of then Senator Obama praising Rev. Jeremiah Wright at a campaign event in 2006.

In it he has nothing but praise for Wright and admits he took the title of his book from one of Wright’s sermons.

Then in April 2008, when people were criticizing Obama for sitting in Wright’s church for twenty years, hearing him damn America, Obama struck a different note. He said, “When he (Wright) states and then amplifies such ridiculous propositions as the U.S. government somehow being involved in AIDs, when he suggests that Minister Farrakhan somehow represents one of the greatest voices of the 20th and 21st century, when he equates the United States’s wartime efforts with terrorism, then there are no excuses. They offend me, they rightly offend all Americans and they should be denounced. And that’s what I’m doing very clearly and unequivocally here today.”

That’s a stretch from his 2006 feelings in this video, isn’t it?
