Obama on "The View"
Barbara Walters: "Had the reverend not retired would you have left the church?"
Obama: "Had the reverend not retired, and had he not acknowledged that what he had said had deeply offended people and were inappropriate and mischaracterized what I believe is the greatness of this country, for all its flaws, then I wouldn't have felt comfortable staying at the church."
In the imortal words of "The Church Lady" from Saturday Night Live:
"How convenient" ......after 20 years of membership!
