Un­fit to com­mand

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

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
