Imus speaking with guest Jeff Toobin puts in I-Context the Obama defense of the Reverend Wright comments.
He (Obama) was one of the guys, one of the first people jumping up and down screaming about me being fired!
And when he got in trouble with Reverend Wright, he asked us all to put the Reverend Wright comments in context.
Which of course nobody was going to do. They wouldn’t do it with me, they wouldn’t do it with him.
Or to consider all these wonderful things that Reverend Wright had done for his entire life. Which I’m sure he has (done wonderful things).
BUT I DON’T MEAN TO MAKE THIS ALL ABOUT ME, BUT SOMETIMES IT’S UNAVOIDABLE.
Just because you a wonderful person, doesn’t entitle you to say whatever you feel like saying. He (Obama) should recognize that.
Netting this out. The chickens came home to roost!
