The Rev. Jeremiah Wright is on his worldwide media tour setting the record straight about his strong patriotism and love for this country.

Many people, including myself, felt the reverend acquitted himself well on PBS with Bill Moyers and with his NAACP speech, broadcast live on Fox News.

Everyone has an opinion about the reverend and how he has been unfairly maligned through the media lenses, while others are more convinced than ever that Wright is a dangerous and frightening human being.

Regardless of what the opinions of the good reverend are, no matter where he goes and how well he states his case, he does a huge disservice to the Obama bid for the presidency. The Rev. Wright's ego is getting the better of him now, and his blindness to the impact on his fellow parishioner’s campaign is immeasurable and will linger until the November elections.

If Wright truly cared about Sen. Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaTeaching black children to read is an act of social justice Buttigieg draws fresh scrutiny, attacks in sprint to Iowa The shifting impeachment positions of Jonathan Turley MORE (D-Ill.) and his bid for the presidency, he would just disappear from the radar screen until January 2009. What the Rev. Wright has yet to realize is that his legacy in this country and globally will be that he and he alone is why Sen. Barack Obama wasn't elected president of these United States. If that's the footnote he strives for in history, then this fellow pundit must say to him and his supporters: Job well done.

In other words, shut up and quietly disappear now or completely destroy what remains of any chance for Obama to occupy the White house. What’s tragic to this historic moment is that the senator would have become president.
