"Do you know what your problem is?"

An article in the NY Post this morning detailed how the Obama campaign tried to silence the Reverend Jeremiah Wright during his 2008 campaign. According to Wright, he was indirectly offered $150,000 by a close friend of Obama's to stop giving speeches until after the election.

Wright turned that offer down, and then Obama himself arranged a secret meeting where he asked Wright to stop giving speeches. According to Wright, Obama said to him, "Do you know what your problem is? You have to tell the truth."

If Wright's account is true -- and my guess is that it is -- it's a revealing quote on two levels. The first is that Obama sees all of Wright's anti-American, anti-white pronouncements as the truth. The second is that Obama views honesty as a "problem."

It's certainly a problem that Obama himself does not suffer from.

I remember seeing a speech Obama gave to the UN professing his support for Israel. I have no proof but I had the distinct impression that he was saying those things out of political necessity and it struck me he is comfortable saying whatever is needed at the time and that that must be almost a prerequisite to being in that position.
The amount of times he must have had to sell out to get there.

Steven --
Obama is, at heart, definitely not a supporter of israel. But he knows which side of the bread he has to butter.

I've been on the fence for a while about whether Obama is a sociopath. But I"m leaning more and more towards him being one. He just lies too frequently, and too naturally.
