Obama’s failure to even mention the Democratic Party’s racist past, while confessing that he lied about when he first heard Rev. Wright’s hateful rants, calls into question Obama’s character and judgment. The shocking words of Rev. Wright can be heard [on YouTube]. Without flinching, Rev. Wright damned his own country, declaring that innocent Americans deserved to be killed by Islamic terrorists on September 11, 2001...
