Washington Times and My Comments

From time to time I am asked by the Washington Media to provide background information regarding my opinion of the political landscape in Rural Kentucky, Fort Campbell and the South. Last week, Ralph Z. Hallow of the Washington Times asked me to comment regarding the fall out of Rev. Wright's remarks.

While it is sometimes painful, I always give my professional opinion when asked. I believe Rev. Wright has damaged Sen. Obama and the eventual Democrat Nominee. If you stay involved in politics very long your going to have friends on both sides of the fence, friends who you like but don't always agree with, friends of every faith and persuasion. No one wants to publicly denounce a friend but unfortunately for Sen. Obama, Rev. Wright has proven to be no friend.

I don't disagree with every one of Rev. Wright's arguments but because of the media age we live in, many one line comments can be taken out of context. If you were to listen to just one of my sermons on any given Sunday you probably would not be able to understand everything I'm saying unless you had listened to the previous messages.

Although I have not listened to Rev. Wright in depth, it seemed apparent to me that many of his comments have originated from arguments made by Pulitzer Prize winning writer, Talyor Branch. I have read and would recommend Branch's "Parting the Waters". In short, Branch makes his argument surrounding the theme that America has experienced many of its problems because we as a Nation have failed to live up to the promises of the "first revolution", that being the founding principles of our Nation.

Unfortunately for Obama and the Rural White Middle Class there is not a big margin of error allowed. Western Kentuckians and Southerners in general are weary of Democrat Presidential candidates anyway. Cultural beliefs and traditions are more important than gas prices. We like to have our cake and eat it to. We want a candidate who not only offers a better way, we want that candidate to pass our litmus test. To be gift wrapped in a way we find appealing. Being right on the issues does not spell electability. I think there has to be a middle ground. The Right Wing has hurt the Republicans and the Left Wing has hurt the Democrats. The Democrats are going to have to learn from past mistakes and I'm not sure that's happening. The problem with the Democrats when it comes to campaigns is simply this, the Democrats would rather be right than win. That don't buy noth'in on election day!

If you want to read all my comments you can use the Washington Times search engine by keying in Ralph Hallow. I believe the article is entitled "Wright comments at the wrong time". My first name was spelled wrong which I will never live down but try to work through that.
