Democrat Says Obama Lacked “Political Courage”

November 3, 2008

You already knew that Barack Obama was a coward.  In the face of a pastor acting like a  raving lunatic and some 8,000 parishoners singing, chanting and applauding in approval, Barack Obama stayed put in a congregation of nutcakes because he was too afraid to say the truth to his bros: Reverend Jeremiah Wright is a man that should not be followed.  “Reverend” Wright, who once said, “God damn America,” should have been condemned himself by any member of the U.S. Senate.

U.S. Senators are sometuimes called leaders.  But Obama couldn’t, wouldn’t and didn’t point out that Mr. Wright was “over the top.”   That means Mr. Obama is no leader.  He is a follower and a coward.

Even if he gets elected president — and he probably will — I stand by this remark.  Until Mr. Obama proves otherwise.

Now another Democrat has said what we all know.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler of Manhattan was visiting a synagogue in Boca Raton, Fla., Sunday when he was confronted by Obama critics who wanted to know why Obama hadn’t ended his association earlier with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Obama severed ties with Wright this year after videotapes surfaced showing the pastor making anti-American statements from the pulpit of the Chicago church where Obama worshipped for 20 years.

Nadler said he was guessing that Obama “didn’t have the political courage” to leave the church earlier.

Why did John McCain make Rev. Wright out of bounds?  Because he didn’t want to be attacked as a racist….

See the Associated Press report on Mr. Nadler:
