    youtube vid included

    An assist from an unexpected quarter:
    "[Y]ou can't hold the candidate responsible for everything that people around him may say or do," Huckabee says. "It's interesting to me that there are some people on the left who are having to be very uncomfortable with what ... Wright said, when they all were all over a Jerry Falwell, or anyone on the right who said things that they found very awkward and uncomfortable, years ago. Many times those were statements lifted out of the context of a larger sermon. Sermons, after all, are rarely written word for word by pastors like Rev. Wright, who are delivering them extemporaneously, and caught up in the emotion of the moment. There are things that sometimes get said, that if you put them on paper and looked at them in print, you'd say 'Well, I didn't mean to say it quite like that.'"

    Later, he defended Wright's anger, too:

    "As easy as it is for those of us who are white to look back and say 'That's a terrible statement!' ... I grew up in a very segregated South. And I think that you have to cut some slack -- and I'm gonna be probably the only conservative in America who's gonna say something like this, but I'm just tellin' you -- we've gotta cut some slack to people who grew up being called names..."[/b]

    Barack has pretty much said the same thing.. that his pastor statements were a product of his life experiences. He also separated the statements from the person, saying that he would not disown the man any more than he would disown his own grandmother.

    I&#39;m starting to question the conservatives&#39; motives for continuing to dwell on this. It&#39;s done and over with and they need to let it go. I&#39;m also questioning this whole thing about McCain suspending his campaign worker for posting a video of Wright on youtube. Sounds like another one of those things where it was McCain&#39;s idea to post it on youtube, then he turns around and blames it on the staffer to make himself look like a team player. <_<

    And Huckabee needs to just shut up about it. If it&#39;s not a big deal, then why even bring it up.
    Quit tripping on what you're wearing on your behind and get some education in your head.

    They are dwelling on it because they want Hilary to be the nominee.This is the opportunity to take down Obama.

    I think Huckabee&#39;s comments were in support of Obama and Wright.

    Right

    I"m sure Fox will now clown Huckabee for them. They are still fixated on this whole thing. After Hannity&#39;s comments yesterday, I&#39;m convinced they are trying to get Hillary nominated so McCain can win.

    Yes, they are. I wish that the media would just let it go.
