Always On The Playground

Front and center…Barack Obama and Reverend Wright…

The game is on…the verbal volleys are flying…

the cable news is having yet another mid-day adrenalin rush…

Wright is described as a crazy uncle….a thorn in Obama’s side…a nuclear bomb in his candidacy…

Obama kept calm…in the past weeks…tried to put it into perspective…interview after interview…

Just on Sunday… as he finally sat down on Fox Cable News with Chris Wallace…a good portion of his descriptive portrayal of why he is ready to be president…how he handles the ups and downs of being a candidate…including dealing with his pastor….

On Monday… Wright spoke again…

Obama still presented that even keel… even on this day….

So 24 hours later…he came out swinging…why?

BCbythesea….opinion….boys never really leave the playground…..

The pundits who have it right….

Rev. Wright brought this “kid” into his church…into the neighborhood…into the limelight…

Rev. Wright spent a lifetime of being the leader…

and in his mind the “kid”….jumped over him…by chance and by luck…

Obama was the beneficiary of the nasty Republican senatorial race in Illinois.. …where a seemingly easy race for the Republican candidate was “helped” into the toilet by a judge opening up sealed papers from the divorce of candidate Jack Ryan…suggestions of an “open” marriage etc….sent him packing…

No viable replacement….Obama…was now a Senator…in an easy win….

Then just as quickly …he gets a foot up…and just as easily…. enters the presidential race….

Rumblings of pushing Rev. Wright aside at the last minute as he was to introduce Obama at his historic¬† announcement…to become a Democratic candidate for president … are now disclosed…..

always on the playground….

no one likes to stop being the king….of the playground…

Wright practically said as much… to the Press Club…

He yelled it from the top of the sandbox…

Obama…must have finally seen it…

Game over….

Obama is now king of the playground…. he staked his claim…. finally….

but did he wait too long?…..
