    Why does Hillary' character count and Obama's does not.

    Defections from the Clinton camp often use character as an issue ...
    but don't question Obama's character .... nope you get labeled for that.

    I agree with this woman. The remaining primary voters have a duty to their country
    to make sure character is an equal issue for Clinton and Obama.
    If McCain trounces Obama in the general election ... democrats have themselves to blame.
    Clinton may not be perfect, she is power hungry and has waffled occaisonaly ...
    But her character is far and above that of Obama because she is a strong person ... strongest of the remaining 3.

    Do you think that every pro-abortion or pro-gay Catholic who attends a church where those things are preached against should be held to the same standard you want to hold Obama to? Obama is a black man and black churches have their own way of preaching. They use hyperbole more than white churches and try to rouse people to their feet. It's a style of preaching that's traditional in black churches. The fact that Wright has made a tiny number of controversial remarks is simply political fodder being exploited by those who oppose him.

    In order to avoid a double standard, you have to say (1) Obama is wrong because he attended a church where the minister on occasional said bad things, (2) but Reagan or Bush were not wrong for associating with ministers who on occasion said bad things because they were not members of those particular churches (e.g., Moon, Robertson, Falwell, etc.).

    Also, it's sort of revealing how the white right is not saying these attacks on Obama are an attack on Christianity. Shows what hypocrites they are. The bible talks a lot about hypocrisy, but the right wing doesn't bring that up because they're guilty of it.

    I hope you're never walking while your knee jerks like that, you could fall down and get hurt.


    So, Patters, now that Obama has basically thrown Wright under the bus, what does that say about his character?

    Wow, that is perhaps the best written post I have seen in this forum.

    Congratulations.

    And it is quite honest and true, too.

    If your in public life (show biz, media, politics ect) it can be very dangerous to say ANYTHING about Obama, one little slip of the tongue can destroy your life, it has been done before with people far less prominent than America's "New Prince".

    They're waiting in the shadows to Nail You, say your piece at the Polls.
