Barack Obama finally felt compelled to throw his pastor, Jeremiah Wright, "under the bus". No doubt Wright was just a tad miffed (and probably more than that) that Obama was previously trying to distance himself from him, which is mostly likely why Wright spoke out like he did earlier in the week. Wright's comments were enough that Obama finally had to cut ties with him totally. I can absolutely see Wright describing his recent experiences this way: "I have gone from sitting in the back of the bus to being thrown under it, and I'm not sure which hurts more."
I'm neither liberal Democrat nor conservative Republican; nor do I fall in between the two extremes as a "moderate", because I take stands rather than simply find a middle ground. My views depend upon the issue, so the only way to describe someone who is against both legalized abortion and the death penalty is as an independent. So whether you're liberal, conservative. or any of the points between, there's something for you to like -and not like. And there's other things to see as well. I generally post about 2 to 3 times a week. If I am gone for a certain amount of time, I'll say when I'm leaving, and when I expect to be back. Welcome!
