Let me say at the outset that I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy. I categorically denounce any statement that disparages our great country or serves to divide us from our allies. I also believe that words that degrade individuals have no place in our public dialogue, whether it's on the campaign stump or in the pulpit. In sum, I reject outright the statements by Rev. Wright that are at issue.

Obama spent DECADES at Wrights church.
Obama donated money to Wrights church.
Obama picked Wright to baptise his children.
Obama picked Wright to officiate at his wedding.
Obama picked WRIGHTS WORDS to be the title of his book.
Obama fully knew the racist crap Wright spewed from the pulpit (he can't truthfully claim ignorance on that) and Obama fully knew that the parishoners there applauded and cheered Wright on every stink'n time he spewed ... and yet Obama chose to sit in the pews instead of getting up and walking out. His very presence in the church and with those people means he agreed/agrees with them. A good person would have been sick to their stomach at the first sign of the hate filled racist and anti-American crap ... but not Obama. He not only stuck it out, he sucked it up (and titled his book after Wrights words).
He denounces now? Too little, too late.
now he can sleep in it.

What is wrong with what he said?
I think "God Damn America" is pretty accurate. This country has nothing to be proud of. We kill innocent people, start un-warranted wars, spy on our own citizens, torture people, sit by and watch our government tear our nation to shreds, give money to some dictators and then turn around and go to war with others, etc..
I'm embarrassed to be an American citizen, and I'm confident in saying I am not the only one. In fact, I'll go on the record as saying every single American citizen should be ashamed of what this country has become.
