OK, which times? ever in your life have you thought, way to go NAACP?At one time, they did. To now give a platform for the infamous demogogue Rev. Wright, and applaud him, etc, shows how sadly they've declined.

Did you see the speech? Have you read the transcript?
The man is an amazing speaker. I have only seen the 5minute or so clips on youtube. If you agree a lick with him or not, most people I would bet would say he is quite captivating and if he could change his focus from God onto something different, I could sit down for that once a week for an hour.
It happened to come on CNN late night for me, like 1am, middle of the night for the rest of the country. Either way. I will post the transcript after this post and let everyone decide for themselves.
As a side note, I do wish he would kinda go away for awhile, I am not convinced he is hurting Obama that much, but he certainly isnt helping him.
Yes, they covered his whole speech on CSPAN, and I watched as much as I could stomach. All the while while he was speaking, he would make one after another statement that was a distortion of history, an exaggeration, defamatory, or outrageous one way or another, and I'm sitting there thinking with each one "that's BS", but of course the audience applauds every one.
Since you appear to be reasonably intelligent, I'm stunned that he can hypnotize you. I get mental images of wild-eyed people wildly applauding people like farakhan and hitler. I don't give a crap how "good" a speaker someone is - I listen carefully to WHAT HE IS SAYING.
Hey There Lib,
I want you to know, when I was watching that, I thought to myself, this must just be pissing off libsmasher.
A few things Ill say. I often times will disagree with the far majority of what someone says, but can still recognize that they are a gifted speaker. Rush Limbaugh is a perfect example for me. Though I would be interested to see how well he performs publicly in front of say 10k people.
About Rev Wright, I think you are expecting something different from what you got. He is a pastor, and like any other religious leader, absolute truths to him arent the message. What you get is %75 truth, and the rest is debatable or somwhat true in one's perception.
So, Ill say this, I found Rev Wright entertaining. He was well animated. Articulate, and his delivery was easy to follow, funny at times. He rambled a bit long for my taste, but overall, B+
