Democratic strategist Tad Devine, an adviser to the Al Gore and John Kerry presidential campaigns, accused Mitt Romney’s campaign of invoking the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright in a recent ad.
Devine said Wednesday that he was “shocked” to see what he believed was imagery of an African-American church in an ad released Tuesday by Romney’s campaign team and airing in New Hampshire. The ad, Romney’s first of the campaign, is “clearly an attempt to bring back Rev. Wright and race,” Devine tweeted.
No wonder Devine is scared, because LI also links to a video from 2006 found by the Daily Caller of Obama crediting the Racist Reverend Wright's sermon "The Audacity of Hope" as the title of his book.
Why is this important? Because this sermon is what Obama said "inspired him" to join Wright's "church," though he claims he wasn't around when Wright preached his most vitriolic sermons (video below).
(Obama quotes Wright) "It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…That’s the world! On which hope sits!"
So is it any wonder that Obama and the Democrat Party's new electoral strategy is to tell white working class Americans to go to hell? I mean, this is a guy who came to the national stage in 2004, who said in part...
there is not a liberal America and a conservative America -- there is the United States of America. There is not a Black America and a White America and Latino America and Asian America -- there’s the United States of America. ...We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.
...and yet this same "uniter" has talked about "punishing our enemies" and sought to divide America by race, gender, class, and union vs. non-union.
Unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers also fits into this equation. We were told he was "just another guy in the neighborhood," while Obama's political career was started in this terrorist's living room.
Here's Ayers talking about that fundraiser (Gateway Pundit).
And Ayers is even giving his support to the OccupyWallStreet squatters.
Don't think for a minute Ayers didn't know Obama's pastor either.
Ask yourself, would (let's say) Michele Bachmann or Rick Perry be still running for President if the church they belonged to talked about being "unashamedly white and unapologetically Christian," or had a fundraiser in the home of an unrepentant abortion clinic bomber?
So why should this still be an issue for Obama? Because it strikes to his deception, as to how he tried to hide his radical roots, which have come to fruition during his term.
As the old saying goes, "fool me (or us) once, shame on you..."
