Obama's former pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright said yesterday he hasn't talked to the President because "them Jews" won't let him, apparently referring to Obama's aides.

"Asked if he had spoken to the President, Wright said: 'Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office. ...

"They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. ... I said from the beginning: He's a politician; I'm a pastor. He's got to do what politicians do."

Wright said he had no hard feelings toward Obama for distancing himself from Wright during the campaign, adding that he voted for him anyway.
"Of course I voted for him; he's my son. I'm proud of him," Wright said. "I've got five biological kids. They all make mistakes and bad choices. I haven't stopped loving any of them.

"He made mistakes. He made bad choices. I've got kids who listen to their friends. He listened to those around him. I did not disown him."n the election and referred to the President as his "son."

"Bad choices?" From the sound of these remarks, it seems like Obama made exactly the right decision in distancing himself from Wright.
