Like Rod Blagojevich, it's always nice to see one of Barry's old Chi-town homies come back to haunt him. Barry went to this guy's church for 20 years, but now that he's the HNIC attempting to push through a radically white, liberal agenda, Barry treats the guy like cancer. But Jeremiah Wright isn't going to be some Vera Baker (the women Barry allegedly had an affair with some years ago, but who has suddenly gone into "seclusion"), no Jeremiah's making sure he can be as much of a headache to Barry as he can while reminding Black liberals of all the promises he made to his Black base that have yet to come to fruition. Good for him.He's baaack.
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama's controversial ex-pastor, threw a hissy fit in a letter to an African aid group, claiming that the president "threw me under the bus" and the White House views him as "toxic."
In a missive obtained by the Associated Press, Wright told Africa 6000 International that the Obama administration would likely ignore his efforts to release frozen funds for use in earthquake-stricken Haiti.
"No one in the Obama administration will respond to me, listen to me, talk to me or read anything that I write to them. I am 'toxic' in terms of the Obama administration," Wright wrote the president of the Pennsylvania-based group, Joseph Prischak, earlier this year.
"I am 'radioactive,' Sir. When Obama threw me under the bus, he threw me under the bus literally!" he wrote. "Any advice that I offer is going to be taken as something to be avoided. Please understand that!"
The White House didn't respond to requests for comment Monday about Wright's remarks.
