… but Obama’s money talked.
The Washington Post reports today that, according to their just-released tax returns, Barack and Michelle Obama gave $26,270 to Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ in 2007. Together with his $22,500 donation in 2006, that makes just under $50,000 in the last two years. That’s got to complicate this second stage of Obama’s Wright damage control effortâ€”the distancing stage, where he tells us he would have left the church if only Wright hadn’t retired, and that he and his pastor were never really that close.
Oh, its okay…. Obama is doing what every Elitist Liberal does:Â “Do as I SAY, not as I DO.”Â No wonder Obama is so popular with Latte Liberals and Plastic America.Â He truly is one of them.
After all,Â no one I knowÂ made anywhere CLOSE to $4.2 million dollars in 2007.Â Democrats truly are the party of the privileged & self-righteous.
Words matter, actions count.
