Sen. Barack Obama said he is “outraged” by comments his former minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, made Monday at the National Press Club and “saddened by the spectacle.” “
In Die Hard, Hans Gruber is trying to chill out his crew as they’re trying to get to the $$$ in the vault. He says:
You asked for a miracle, I give you the FBI… “
He ain’t worried about the power systems because the FBI is going to bumble in and take care of their problems for them. Heist accomplished. (Or so Gruber thinks.)
Well, it’s about time that Wright has opened his big mouth again, because it gives Obama exactly what he needed: a chance to kick Wright to the curb fully. Obama can now claim that he did not understand earlier how far gone Wright was, how radical he was–and now Obama can distance himself fully.
I don’t know how much political posturing this amounts to. But Obama has to say it. And he’s said it quickly and forcefully. At any rate, there’s no way that Hillary is really going to be able to use it anymore….
