The Politics Of Ambition, Er, We Mean Hope

The AP previews Obama's discussion about his former pastor Jeremiah Wright on The View today:

"Had the reverend not retired, and had he not acknowledged that what he had said had deeply offended people and were inappropriate and mischaracterized what I believe is the greatness of this country, for all its flaws, then I wouldn't have felt comfortable staying at the church," Obama said Thursday during a taping of the ABC talk show, "The View." The interview will be broadcast Friday.
"I wouldn't have felt comfortable staying at the church."


But why now?

Senator Obama has been a member of his church for years. He's probably seen hundreds of sermons, some of which, by Senator Obama's own admission, were inflammatory and outside the views held by most Americans. And he didn't quit his church or his Pastor over all that time.

But now he says he wouldn't feel comfortable staying if things hadn't changed?!??!!

We're calling bullsh*t on that one.
