Unfit to command
Barack Obama's recent disingenuous denouncement of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright was nothing but political posturing. As he articulated on a recent occasion, he could not disown him after 20 years of this relationship because “he is like an uncle” to him. If Mr. Obama had been truly concerned about the Rev. Wright's rants, he would have distanced himself years ago but he chose to submit to this man's teachings as well as expose his family to it. He did not protect himself nor his family from this harmful relationship that will be costing him in all facets of his life for a long time to come.
Barack Obama does not have the courage and gravitas to be the President of the United States; he clearly cannot stand up to Rev. Wright's goading. He simply dismissed it as nothing but an annoyance to his campaign since the polls show that it is impacting his popularity. If Mr. Obama cannot stand up to Rev. Wright, how on earth will he be able to stand up to a despotic terrorist regime that wants to do us harm? His lack of leadership in his own home is clearly emblematic of his lack of fitness for the highest office of the land. Julie Morscheck Wheaton, Illinois
