Obama Takes Heat Over Another "Trusted" Minister

My God, it's the minister from Blazing Saddles!

This guy surrounds himself with worse confidants than Britney Spears!

(CNN) — The Catholic League sharply criticized Barack Obama Friday for his ties to controversial Catholic minister Michael Pfleger, saying in a statement the Illinois senator should have severed ties with him long ago.

Of course he should have. Obama has more racist friends than Robert Byrd!

The criticisms come after wide circulation on the Internet of Pfleger's recent sermon, in which he mocked Hillary Clinton for becoming teary-eyed before the New Hampshire primary in January.

"And then, out of nowhere, came 'Hey, I'm Barack Obama,'" Pfleger said during a sermon Sunday at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. "And [Clinton] said, 'Oh damn, where did you come from? I'm white! I'm entitled! There's a black man stealing my show!'"

Does Pfleger have a mirror in his house? I man, this tool knows that he's white, right?

Barack Obama said Thursday he was "disappointed" in the comments, and Pfleger later issued an apology for the remarks.

Is he disappointed in the remarks, or disappointed that they were leaked? It's not like this is the first time Pfleger said inflammatory things. Hell, this guy has defended and praised Louis Farrakhan!

"Why is it that of all the wonderful Catholic priests in the Chicago Archdiocese, Obama long ago chose Pfleger to hang with?" Catholic League President Bill Donohue said in a statement. "Truth be known, Pfleger has a very troubling history."

That's a damned good question. One which Barack Obama probably won't answer.

“Senator Obama says he wants to bring people together. Then why does he choose as his clerical friends people like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Father Pfleger?" Donohue also said. "They are two peas in a pod, both equally divisive, separated only by the color of their skin.” (H/T - CNN)

Another good question. Look, I appreciate the face that Pfleger apologized after the fact, but the question remains: why does Barack Obama surround himself with racists and anti-Semites?

In my opinion, he either has the worst judgment of any politician today, or he shares some of their views.
