Re: No Wright Answers

The reason why yesterday's fiasco at the National Press Club is so problematic for Obama is that it completely blows a hole in his insistence that he somehow wasn't aware of Jeremiah Wright's most incendiary statements until he saw the snippets on YouTube last month. If Wright, given the opportunity to explain himself to hundreds of reporters and a national television audience, could be so hateful and utterly bizarre, can we really believe that in the 20 years worth of sermons Obama sat in on, Wright didn't go off the rails even once? The problem for Obama is now one of credibility.
