Obama stands by a misunderstood man

James W. writes:

How right Mr. Obama is in refusing to permit a few comments made over the years and cherry-picked by his enemies to define the Reverend. This is exactly what happened to The Leader. Here was a man who gave a beaten people hope, who gave them courage, and most of all pride. It was true he was known to have spoken of the Jewish problem on occasion, but certainly not frequently. And I never, never heard him speak disparagingly of anyone in my presence. That was simply not his custom, as anyone can tell you. He was a great gentleman, unfailingly courteous and kind. Everybody noted that.

You simply must understand the terrible circumstances in which we found ourselves—unbearable levels of unemployment, carrying wheelbarrows of money to buy bread, and being constantly harrased by various hostile powers with obligations forced upon us in our moment of greatest vulnerability.
