Rev. Jeremiah Wright Is back

The return of Wright as an issue is a sign the campaign to come will be no-holds barred. CNN's Jim Acosta reports.

    I can't see how Rev. Wright is an issue unless someone tried to bribe him to stay quiet during the election cycle. That would be newsworthy. Kudos to Campbell Brown for having the courage to speak her mind knowing that her opinion would be used against her by a bigoted main stream media.

    IS THIS THE BEST THE GOP CAN DO, AS A CAMPAIGN ISSUE??? Jeremiah Wright! SO WHAT??? I am sure everyone reading this blog has been to church before.... What is your preacher or former preacher doing right now??? Do you even know??? If he is catholic, he might be sodomizing young boys!!! So, should yolu be b lamed for the behavior of such a character??? The media needs to stop being so damn hard-up for a story, and be more diligent at spotting a phony issue. Who the hell cares about Jeremiah Wright or something he said??? Is he running for office? How is Jeremiah Wright connected to the economy??? How is he connected to the two wars??? How is he connected to the Bush tax cuts??? How is he connected to foreign aid??? What has he to do with affordable health care??? GIVE US A BREAK ALREADY!!!

    Did Wright ever go away?

    The Alphabetistas got all worked up over a 50 year old allegation yet a close 20 year relationship with a man who admits hating whites and America causes feigned out rage?

    The Clintons were good at that, cry foul while breaking your opponents knees.

    I would not go near this much either if I were Gov. Romney, let the good folks who actually have viewers handle it.

    By the way, if obama wins a second term, which he won't, Hillary will never be president. A third democratic term just will not happen. Bill should be doing all he can to not get obama reelected...
