Obama Apologizes for Ranting Pastor

Some are wondering what took him so long! From Yahoo/AP:

As video of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright has widely aired on
television and the Internet, Obama responded by posting a blog about his
relationship with Wright and his church, Chicago's Trinity United Church of
Christ, on the Huffington Post...

"I categorically denounce any statement that disparages
our great country or serves to divide us from our allies," Obama said. "I also
believe that words that degrade individuals have no place in our public
dialogue, whether it's on the campaign stump or in the pulpit. In sum, I reject
outright the statements by Reverend Wright that are at issue."
In a sermon on
the Sunday after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, Wright suggested the
United States brought on the attacks.

What puzzles me, is how could the Senator sit listening to these type sermons denouncing America's culture for 20 years without being affected by these ravings. The question is, how much of Obama's worldview has been formed by his close association with this man?

Here, then, is the shocking video (Warning, Racist Statements):
