Today CNN published this article, Obama says he’s ‘outraged’ with pastor’s comments.

In his harshest criticism yet of his former minister, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama said he was “outraged” by Wright’s comments at the National Press Club Monday, and “saddened by the spectacle.”

“I have been a member of Trinity Church since 1992. I have known Rev. Wright for almost 20 years,” he said at a Winston-Salem, North Carolina press conference Tuesday. “The person I saw yesterday is not the person I met 20 years ago.”

I for one have lost respect for Barack Obama.  I think he is caving into pressures to distance himself to maintain his electability.

But wouldn’t he be more electable if he did the courageous thing and stood by his pastor?  I do not believe that Reverend Wright is not “the person I met 20 years ago.”  I think he’s the same person, the person who prayed and cared for Barack Obama for 20 years and it’s just wrong to now suddenly cut that man off.  Reverend Wright even was at his presidential campaign announcement to pray for him and his family.

It speaks poorly of Barack Obama’s character and his faith.  I’ve steadily been losing faith in politicians and I was hoping Barack Obama was different.  I guess I was wrong.
