I have a nightmare: Obama to give 'major' speech on race

Barack Obama is to give a speech on 'the larger issue of race' in the primary campaign tomorrow. Among other things he'll apparently attempt to defend the inflammatory preaching of Pastor Wright. Jim at Gateway Pundit has the details.

Clearly Obama thinks it's time for some damage limitation, but he'll need to choose his words carefully, particularly with regard to Wright. JammieWearingFool reports that the pastor of disaster has an approval record of just 8% with voters nationally. The good news is that as Wright has never had a national approval rating before, this is a record high figure.

I wonder if he'll be taking questions afterwards?

Ace has a post on the MSM airbrushing Wright's comments, and lots more Wright stuff.

Yeah, well, I couldn't find the detail I was looking for -- will the speech conflict with American Idol or not?

The only hope Obama has with this speech is that the American public is so biblically illiterate that when Obama throws out any biblical verses (totally misused as he did with the "Judge not lest ye be judged" verse he misinterpreted to mean the opposite), they'll actually think Obama does know something of the Bible and fall for his spin couched in scripture.

The more Obama preaches, the more he reveals his total ignorance of Christianity. Like when he once said he'd ask Jesus if he was going up or going down--now any biblically literate Christian knows there's no "if" in that, if you've trusted in Christ you're going up (because in Christian theology salvation depends on Him, not us), but Obama still doesn't get the one essential fundamental of Christianity -- the gospel! Unfortunately, many Americans don't either, and that's their prerogative, but Obama pretends to, and that's the problem.
