Reverend Jeremiah Wright caused problems for President Barack Obama's campaign in 2008, and new details have emerged alleging that the then-candidate tried to convince his former pastor to keep quiet.
The retired pastor, who came under fire after an old sermon where he said that the September 11 terrorist attacks were 'America's chickens coming home to roost', said that he was offered $150,000 to stay silent until the election was over.
Journalist Edward Klein interviewed Mr Wright and included their conversation in his new book, The Amateur.

I think Obama and McCain held their strategy meetings together, after all they both seemed to be after the same outcome.

I've been kind of mouthy about Obama. Can I get paid to keep quiet?

Never mind. No amount of money could make me shut up.:evil-grin:

So, who's the whore?

I saw this story in the NY Post, and it seemed like a National Enquirer sounding story so I passed on posting it. Another story they had a link to was "MICHELLE OBAMA'S 'JEALOUSY' AND 'RESENTMENT' LED TO RIFT WITH OPRAH" so it seemed a bit sensationalized. looks like the Wright part is true though, there's lots of other sources.

And just think-if Rev. Wright had not been so discredited in 2008, people might actually listen to him in 2012!

These all come from a new book on Obama called The Amateur. It's supposed to be a pretty scathing indictment of Obama, Michelle and some of their Chicago cronies.

That would explain why it's slow to be reported on by the MSM, except Fox. It's anti-Obama.

Sean Hannity did an interview on his radio show with Ed Klein. Link (http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hannity.com%2Fvideos%2F%3 Furi%3Dchannels%252F400391%252F1658993&h=QAQErG_0DAQHk9CsNviMeJttmGHN8WvbcW-fpUDOHDn8nuA)
