The Jeremiah Wright Factor.

[W]hen you're left with the choice of either acknowledging that you had sincere close, personal, and political ties with a minister whose views most Americans find beyond the pale, or defending yourself by using the "hey, I'm just a cynical politician who uses religion to get votes just like anything else, and I don't believe in it any more than I really believe that NAFTA is bad" excuse, I think you may be in for some trouble.

Obama now has betrayed his spiritual mentor. What would it take for him to betray the US to our enemies?

Either, he is lying or he did a lot of sleeping in church. I've never been to his church, yet I've known of it's racism, anti-American, and anti-Israel positions for months now.

It does seem that Michelle was listening and taking notes.

When did sermons/diatribes become comments?

It is plausible that Obama aligned himself with Trinity United to seem more black for political purposes. But now that it hurts a national campaign he pretends not to know them. hmmm... Sounds like business as usual...typical. He is a farce!
