[UPDATED] Another Pastor Problem for Obama

Yet another Pastor, one who until recently, was also on the Obama campaign's pastoral advisory committee, has revealed himself as a "problem" child for Obama.
"As I have traveled this country, I've been impressed not by what divides us, but by all that unites us," he said. "That is why I am deeply disappointed in Father Pfleger's divisive, backward-looking rhetoric, which doesn't reflect the country I see or the desire of people across America to come together in common cause."
Well, all I can say is at least Obama didn't take as long as he did with Wright to "repudiate" Father Pfleger's hatred. What kind of church is this? Hillary Clinton was right when she said she would have found another church.
Pfleger issued a separate apology Thursday, saying his remarks were "inconsistent with Sen. Barack Obama's life and message, and I am deeply sorry if they offended Sen. Clinton or anyone else who saw them."
What a sack of shit! If Obama had any integrity, he would resign from this sorry excuse for a church. Here are some of the comments for which Pfleger issued his disingenious apology:
When Hillary was crying I really dont believe it was put on. I really believe that she just always thought This is mine. Im Bills wife. Im white. And this is mine, he said, shouting at times. Then out of nowhere came, Hey Im Barack Obama. And she said, Oh damn! Where did you come from? Im white! Im entitled! Theres a black man stealing my show!
"And then out of nowhere came him, Barack Obama. And she said: `Damn! Where did you come from?! I'm white! I'm entitled! There's a black man stealing my show!'
"She wasn't the only one crying!" he said. "There was a whole a lot of white people crying!"
America has been raping people of color and America has to pay the price for the rape.
Pflegers support of Obama is well known in Chicago. He contributed to Obamas state Senate campaign during his years in the Illinois legislature. While Obama was a state Senator in 2000, he secured a $100,000 earmark for the ARK Community Center, a center attached to Pflegers St. Sabina church.
I've said it many times and I'll say it again. Hillary Clinton will beat McCain in November. I'm losing my optimism for Obama's chances. Let's hope another scandal doesn't pop up for him.
