More Problems for Obama?

I find it really interesting that the Obama campaign keeps on getting plagued with "pastor problems." It's kind of funny. Here is what happened. Obama's church--Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois-- had a guest reverend, Rev. Michael Pfleger who said some things (which I think are hilarious, it's almost like comedy show) that are very embarrasing for Obama. He was mocking Hillary Clinton, well, just see for yourself: 

"I'm Bill's wife, I'm white, and this is mine. I just got to get up and step into the plate. And then out of nowhere came, hey, I'm Barack Obama. And she said oh, damn, where did you come from? I'm white. I'm entitled. There's a black man stealing my show."

haha, I just find it so funny. Anyway, Obama now has to distance himself not only from Reverend Wright but also from Reverend Pfleger.

Note: Obama was not present at Church when the guest reverend made his appearance.

At this point Obama should distance himself as much as he can from his church. I, honestly, don't mind Obama's reverends because it's not a reflection of him, but if it's going to cause him some campaign trouble than he needs to just back away from his church.

Should Obama leave his church?

I think so, it's caused too many problems for his campaign. It's not as if a reverend is a presidential spokesperson, but people wait around and listen to him to see if he says something controversial so they can slam Obama. Knowing the way the media dealt with Obama's last reverend, i'm surprised his new one said something that controversia-no lesson learned by Obama OR his reverend.
