Re: Wright and Obama’s Judgment

To add to Mark (H)’s judgment point, in complaining about the billions spent in Iraq, Obama insists he could have found much better uses for this money at home (none of which uses, of course, involves returning it to the taxpayers).

The Obamas continually tell us they are not people of great means, having selflessly abjured big-money jobs in order to devote themselves to what Michelle Obama calls the “helping industry.”  From these modest means, however, they elected to give $22,500 to Wright’s church in 2006.

If funding Wright’s message is the way Obama chooses to spend his own money, do we really want him deciding what better uses our money can be put to?
