The headline story on the Drudge Report is from the New York Post. Reverend Wright says that President Obama tried to pay him to shut up.

Will this get the same amount of coverage that the stupid story about Romney in high school got?

Should it?

Yep. It should be the number one story on every network. It’s more important than his statement about gay marriage and the story about Romney when he was 17.

It shows that the guy who sold himself as someone different from all the rest and above politics was/is nothing but another Chicago political hack.

Not to mention a liar and a phony.

If this story had come out in October of 2008, John McCain would be running for re-election right now.

One thing you can be sure of. It will be dismissed by Obama’s supporters because it appeared in the New York Post.

You’ll be expected to believe that the New York Post is more biased and has less of an agenda than the Washington Post, where the Romney story was on the front page.

It will be interesting to see if Obama is ready to call his mentor,pastor and the man whose quote he used for the title of his book, a liar.


“Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright.

QUIET, PLEASE: President Obama’s onetime pastor Jeremiah Wright says he was offered money not to preach.

“It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.”

“He offered you money?”

“Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.”

“How much money did he offer you?”

“One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.

“Did Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?”

“Yes,” Wright said. “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place. And I said, ‘You’re used to coming to my home, you’ve been here countless times, so what’s wrong with coming to my home?’ So we met in the living room of the parsonage of Trinity United Church of Christ, at South Pleasant Avenue right off 95th Street, just Barack and me. I don’t know if he had a wire on him. His security was outside somewhere.

“And one of the first things Barack said was, ‘I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election.”



How much will have to be thrown in the Rev’s collection basket to get him to say he never said those things or was taken out of context?  I wouldn’t be surprised if his comments were recorded.
