US president Barack Obama's former pastor Jeremiah Wright is at it again. He is protesting loudly to anyone who will listen that The One threw him under the bus. Haven't we heard this song and dance already?
It seems that back in February, a group calling itself Africa 6000 asked Wright to use his influence with Obama to get Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to fork over some of the millions of dollars in Haiti earthquake relief funds.
But according to Hot Air, Wright told the group he was "toxic" -- and he then vented his frustration against Obama:
In his strongest language to date about the administration’s 2-year-old rift with the Chicago pastor, Wright told a group raising money for African relief that his pleas to release frozen funds for use in earthquake-ravaged Haiti would likely be ignored.
“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 Africa 6000 International 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!”
As Hot Air write Ed Morrissey writes: "Does this tell us anything we don’t know about Barack Obama?"
