Jeremiah Wright To Preach At Houston’s Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church

Obama’s former pastor will preach a series of sermons at Houston’s Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church.  What are the chances the church will record those sermons?

Here is what Wheeler Ave Baptist Church says is their mission.  Note that social action and civic justice are part of the mission.

 We therefore believe that God requires of us a total stewardship of our personal selves, our time, our gifts, and our treasure; our families and any friends we may influence to join us in His holy work; and that He expects that total stewardship to call us to personal piety and to social action. We believe that He wants to use us in sanctuary and in market-place, to preach conversion and civic justice, as church members and as professionals or students or homemakers, as total servants bringing a total message to the total human condition. We believe that we are privileged to be partners with God in the redeeming of the damaged human race and the bruised universe.

How Obama Wins

Hit Hillary where it hurts – her lack of experience, or more correctly how she is trying to deceive the public on her level of experience.  Obama should use the recently released schedules to paint a picture of Hillary as a traditional First Lady, not involved in White House policy decisions.  After all, Hillary never had a security clearance, so she not only couldn’t attend classified policy meetings, she couldn’t read any of the classified policy documents.  Obama should have his surrogates do a John Kerry “swift boat” attack on Hillary’s lack of experience.  It worked to destroy Kerry’s credibility, it will work on Hillary.  Force Hillary to defend her claims of experience on a daily basis.  Keep up the daily attacks that tie Hillary to Bill and his antics.  Turn the judgment issue she is using against you.  Say that by defending Bill, Hillary is displaying poor judgment.  Do this from afar, using your shills that are far removed from the campaign.  Use a George Patton strategy, aka, “Hold ‘em by the nose and kick ‘em in the ass”.  Hold Hillary in place by an unrelenting attack on her experience, but have your surrogates attack from a different direction – say on questionable campaign contributions, Bill’s injection of racism in the campaign, Whitewater, billing records, Travelgate, refusal to release tax records, failed health care.  Then attack Hillary for her war vote, and say it goes to her lack of experience and judgment.  You’ve got 90-95% of the black vote.  Let surrogates like Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton help keep that vote in check, but have them do it from a distance.  You’ve got the far left liberal vote with your anti-war position.  Keep the far left in check by attacking Hillary’s war vote.  You’ll need some white blue collar votes.  The best way to get and keep them is to hammer away on the economy.  You made a mistake in referring to your grandmother as a “typical white woman”, so that will cost you some votes.  Finally, have your long range surrogates do daily attacks on Bill Clinton for his willingness to use race as a wedge issue with those “typical white” voters.

How Hillary Wins

Hit Obama where it hurts – his judgment.  Hillary should use her army of shills and surrogates to wage an unrelenting, daily attack on Obama’s judgment.  Cite his close ties to Rezko and how dumb it was to cut a deal with a known influence peddler.  Cite Obama’s father-son relationship with Jeremiah Wright.  Yes, this will piss off black voters, but then that’s something Bill Clinton (aka, First Black President) has managed to do already.  Hillary has lost 90-95% of the black vote anyway, do attacking Wright can’t hurt much.  Include Obama’s relationship with James Meeks as another example of poor judgment.  Hammer Obama’s poor judgment for maintaining a close relationship with Wright and Meeks, ministers that push radical black liberation theology.  Have your third and fourth removed surrogates attack Obama for being a member of a church that espouses liberation theology and socialism vs. the Christian ideals of MLK.  Hammer away at Obama’s poor judgment for exposing his young daughters to Wright’s bigotry, hatred and racist teachings.  Hillary should question Obama’s core beliefs and values, contrast his liberation theology beliefs and values to his public persona and say Obama is living a lie.  Have your shills ask, “Does Senator Obama love America?”, of so, he has some unusual ways of showing it.  Cite the lack of a flag lapel pin, no hand over heart, and ties to a church that promotes racial hatred.  Hillary should begin now to appeal to the Regan Democrats, otherwise, they go to John McCain.  Cede the liberal left to Obama.  Let Obama have those nuts, and the burden of explaining why he accepts the support of such extremists.  Run to the middle.  Defend your war vote.  Say it was the right thing to do at the time, given the information available.  But say it is now time for a new war strategy.  Announce your plan for a phased three year withdrawal, coupled with direct talks with Iran, European allies, and pending Iraq meets specific goals.  Have a bunch of your surrogates who are far removed from your campaign attack Michelle Obama for her values and beliefs.  Hillary, you need to neutralize Michelle in a way that causes Obama’s campaign to stop putting her out front.  After all, isn’t that what your opponents did to you during Bill’s campaigns.  While you’re at it, plan on neutralizing Oprah also.  Use her relationship with Wright as the basis. In giving his “race” speech, Obama has made it okay for everyone, whites included, to talk openly about race, black values, and what goes on in black churches that espouse liberation theology.  What Obama’s speed revealed is his inner core beliefs and values, and the fact that those beliefs and values are at odds with his public persona.  In effect, Obama is living a lie.  One can just imagine Obama and Wright, in a back room at Trinity Church, cracking white jokes and bad mouthing America.
