Video: Jeremiah Wright and “God damn America”

The ABC News report to which AP linked earlier talked about it, but watching it makes it come a little closer to home. Eyeblast picks up the ABC report on this and merges it with a portion of Wright’s speech from the video we posted yesterday:
If Hillary Clinton had to repudiate Geraldine Ferraro for her clumsy and foolish identity-politics rhetoric, then Obama surely has to provide a better response to Wright than comparing him to a crazy uncle in the attic. Wright has a largely ceremonial position in the Obama campaign, but an obvious influence on Obama, as he named his book after a theme from Wright’s sermon.
Also, does it surprise anyone that these sermons have just now begun surfacing? It looks like someone finally began doing some research into Reverend Wright I wonder who that could be?
