The Chicago Reader published an article in 1995 called "What Makes Obama Run?" Mainly a kiss-his-ring tribute to Obama, the article reveals details about Obama that he tried to sweep under the rug in 2008.
"We have some wonderful preachers in town--preachers who continue to inspire me--preachers who are magnificent at articulating a vision of the world as it should be." - Barack Obama in 1995, while he was a member of Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ.
In 2008 Obama claimed he didn't know what Wright was saying. Eventually he disassociated himself from Wright and finally resigned from the church.
The conclusion that would logically be drawn is that Obama was not only aware of what Wright was saying, but idealized him and used him as an example. Just to refresh your memory, review what Obama's inspiration said.
1) Obama's vision of the world as it should be embraces hostility and resentment toward white people; and
2) Obama will lie to get elected.
