More Bad News for Michelle Obama

I know for a fact that Barack and Michelle Obama would like the tape of her blasting “whitey” during a rant at Jeremiah Wright’s church to never see the light of day. They are worried, appropriately so, about the damage this tape will inflict on the Obama campaign. They can be certain of one thing–the tape will hit the blogosphere and TV land come October if Obama is the nominee.

How do I know? I have learned from someone in touch with a senior Republican over this holiday weekend that a major McCain backer has a copy of the tape in addition to the one controlled by the Karl Rove folks. McCain’s supporters are not about to cut Hillary a break. They believe that John McCain stands a better chance of beating Barack rather than Hillary. That’s why they are holding the video. They realize showing it now would likely boost support for Hillary and erode support for Obama among the Super Delegates. Simply put, McCain wants Obama.

Then there is the angry woman problem. Here’s Michelle–living in a $1.6 million dollar home, graduate of America’s most prestigious universities, and pulling a six-figure salary–and she was not proud of the United States until Barack ran for President. Know what? The average angry, bitter white person. who is clinging to God and guns and not living in a mansion, not able to afford college, and making less than $50,000 a year, does not know what her damn problem is.

Jeff Jacoby’s column yesterday in the Boston Globe adds further insight:

In an interview on ABC, Obama growled that Republicans “should lay off my wife,” and described the inoffensive Tennessee video as “detestable,” “low class,” and reflecting “a lack of decency.”

If Republicans “think that they’re going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign,” he added ominously, “they should be careful.”

Ooh, very fierce. But unless Obama is prepared to emulate Jackson – Old Hickory defended his wife’s honor by fighting duels, in one of which he killed a man – he stands no chance of putting his wife’s remarks off-limits to criticism. As long as he keeps sending her around the country to campaign on his behalf, everything she says is – and should be – fair game.

And unfortunately for Obama and his allegedly sunny politics of hope, what Mrs. Obama seems to say with grim regularity is that America is a scary, bleak, and hopeless place.

Here she is, for instance, in Wisconsin:

“Life for regular folks has gotten worse over the course of my lifetime, through Republican and Democratic administrations. It hasn’t gotten much better.”

And in South Carolina:

America is “just downright mean” and “guided by fear . . . We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day.”

Michelle needs an attitude adjustment. Americans don’t want a nattering nabob of negativism in their face for the next four years. And that will become increasingly clear as America gets to know Michelle.

    I received my ballot for the 2000 all-decade team from the Pro Football Hall of Fame last weekend

    When I’m asked to select any sort of all-star team,[url=http://www.ugg-outlet-store.com]ugg outlet[/url]  I prefer 22 players who can actually line up and play a game at their positions of choice.

    So I always pick weak- and strong-side ends, weak- and strong-side outside linebackers and free and strong safeties on defense. [url=http://www.uggsoutletstores.net]ugg stores[/url] I also pick a right and left offensive tackle on offense plus a halfback and a fullback.

You are being forced to [url=http://www.sportshoeshopping.com]wholesale shoes[/url] do something good in your lives for a change.

     The CBC, I grant you has a liberal bias, but then most Canadians are liberal, so it reflects their values.

    Since when does a person decide that a house of worship is to be used in an act of political calculation? What does that say about his moral judgement?

    Yikes!

  • An American

    I will try once more.

    I see strong accusations with nothing but hearsay evidence like “the Obama’s are not what they seem,” and “Obama’s past and present is anti-Democrat and anti-American.” Do you folks remember the McCarthy era? You jump to conclusions about a video tape you haven’t even seen! That’s called “prejudging”. It has the same root as “prejudice.”

    Yes, there are folks who have drunk the Obama kool aid, and can’t see any flaws in him. But you folks have drunk some sort of anti-Obama kool aid.

    This is what I see. He is very bright, and he is a great public speaker (I am happy to see young people active again). He seems quite ambitious. He saw that this was a rare year where a black man might actually be able to win, given the screw-ups of the current administration. He did not follow some unwritten protocol about “waiting his turn”. I think that has angered many. I can understand that, but no one is entitled to the presidency–we deserve the best person we can get.

    I think he has far less experience than the other two candidates. On the other hand, he seems to be less entwined in the web of logrolling and perhaps more able to bring diverse people together. Perhaps. I can see voting against Obama because of his lack of experience, or for him because there are fewer special interests to which he is beholden, or his ability to create a diverse majority.

    He seems to have had trouble early on connecting with the black community, and so attended a church with a nutcase for a preacher. I don’t see Obama doing this as anti-American, but I do think it was done out of political calculation.

    I could do a similar analysis of the other two. They are all complex people, with plusses and minuses. They all are ambitious. They all have brilliant accomplished people who have endorsed them, and will help guide them if they become president. You know, I think we do too much “cult of personality.” It is an entire administration, not one man or woman.

    Frankly, it is the party of the administration that matters more than the persona at its head. In November, you will decide whether the next administration will be Democratic or Republican. After the last 8 years, I see a need for change, and I will vote for whichever Democrat gets nominated.

    • HillaryMadamePresident

      I disagree with 99% of your comments. However, I defend your right to state them. Just don’t be too certain about the special interests thing.

  • Penny Ardinette

    There is a groundswell of love and support out there for Barack Obama that is not necessarily being reported to the pollsters. He will bury McCain handily in November.

    He’s already beaten the best. When he gets going on McCain, he’ll have the old fool looking just like the blithering panderer Bush wannabe he is.

    Obama 08!

    • HillaryMadamePresident

      Obama hasn’t won anything, yet. You must not have heard that more than 16.7 million Democrats support Hillary. A huge number of those supporters will never vote for a finger-flipping, misogynist, newbie from their own party. They will vote for experience. If not Hillary, then John McCain.

    • Jay Morris

      I think that groundswell of love and support is subsiding quickly. You think the “new coalition” is the ticket. You’re simply wrong.

  • Hanna

    This is plain frustrating. As a Clinton supporter I see the chances of our having an excellent President slipping away – I do not think Obama is an acceptable candidate on any level – he has avoided directly answering the very odd circumstances of his snappy rise to political fame – the on and on donations from people deep in the mix of the Chicago Combine, he is amateurish in his presentation of foreign policy (we are at war, no small thing) etc., etc. It is stunning that we are discussing the strategic withholding of a Michelle “whitey rant” tape (whether it exists or not, does it not tell a significant story that so many of us can easily believe in its existence?) a tape that might finally allow Super Delegates an out seemingly necessary not to offend the Black community – (who out there really thinks this race wouldn’t be going to the convention floor if this were 2 white men going at it with this close a race?). The tape might also wake up a larger portion of the Democratic Party that this candidate really holds views that are shockingly out of step with change and unity.

  • Gayle in Oregon

    Michelle and the elusive tape? Why I think it exists is; she does let her anger show and seemed proud of it till she saw the harm it did their pres. run. I did read some of the angry thesis she wrote while at Princeton (thanks to affirmative action by the way), she most likely did the pulpit rant long before she thought her hubby would run for Pres. and she was trying to make points with her congregation AND it seems to me SHE is the one who probably kept them in that church far too long for his carreer and he knew but could not get her to give it up. They lived in a bubble surrounded in the church by like minded people, very out of touch with the main stream and how the Rev sounds to us. She strikes me as very, very politically ambitious like her mate. Of course she lacks his gift of gab and in fact turns off all but the already angry who love her. Just my opinion as an amatuer psychologist.

    And yet you can’t help but come back. I suspect Obama realizes that no matter how many trolls he sends out there is NO TURNING BACK! If Hillary is not the nominee we WILL help the republicans bury the Hamas approved mascot. Spare us the unity crap…everything about Obama’s past and present is anti-Democrat and anti-American.
    **

    “the Hamas approved mascot” – LOL! That’s priceless! Mind if I ‘borrow’ your descritpion of him when I post on other blogs?

  • sebastianguy99

    No you did not offend me..I don’t look for validation on blogs.

    I have done some research and as I’ve said, I’m not in love with Obama, Clinton, or McCain. But I can say that I am leary of Obama because I haven’t seen sufficient toughness from him. I also do not like his medical plan. These are enough for me reasons for me and I am willing to defend my positions.

    What I will not do is resort to questioning his patriotism, his religious affiliation or spread rumors of racist videos. I mean who says “whitey” anyway?

    I also believe that Hilary will lose as well. I believe she would say anything, do anything to obtain power.She agrees to play by the rules until she loses and now wants to change(Fla. and Mich.) She is quick to play the victim card. If there is one thing I do like about Obama is that he has never said he was being treated harshly because he was black. But Clinton is quick to be a victim so I don’t like her.

    McCain, well what can I say. The continuation of most of the Bush policies I believe is not the best course for the country. I believe , or he has given me the impression that he has no problem with the country in a perpetual state of war.

    But my biggest beef with McCain is that he has reversed himself on so many key positions that he is no longer the McCain I wanted to vote for in 2000.

    So as I said, I’m not carrying a torch for any of them but will support the winner. There is plenty to debate about the candidates without resorting bs and propaganda. I’ll have to vote for one of them and it’s going to be tough so I want to here substantive stuff not distractions like “secret whitey tapes”.

    • Brendy

      distractions like “secret whitey tapes”.

      **
      Distractions??? I think it would be a good thing to know who your enemies are! I think a future First Lady cursing or vilifying ‘white’ people, esp. after she sat in a hate/blame whites/America church for 20 years should be outed for the whole country to see. And, especially after Obama said he was never in church when he heard Wright preach such hatred. It might not be a ‘distraction’ to you, but it might be to a few tens of millions of other whites – enough to sink Obama’s and his “sweetie’s” ‘ambitions’.

  • BloodDAnna

    Ahhh this is why I love the Republicans, they find the dirt and know how to use it…sadly the American people will learn too late what some of us have known all along: The Obama’s are not what they seem.

  • mj

    Sebastian99, I truely am sorry if I offended you in any way. From your last post you sound like an intelligent person. I have always in the past respected our elected President whether I agreed with his views or not be it Democrat or Republican. However, please do some research on Barack Obama. It is soooooo scarey. I would WELCOME Hillary as President verses Obama and if you knew me, you would say that’s AMAZING!!! I’m sorry but I will never support Barack Obama. Do your research and you will know why. It is not that I am so emotionally invested in a candidate that I lose objectivity as you say,(because I’m not a fan of any of the 3) but that I am so emotionally invested in our country and the well being of it that I am worried about someone who wants to be the “Commander In Cheif” is a WOLF in sheeps clothing. It will all come out sooner or later. Obama WILL go down. I just hope it is the sooner rather than the later.

    • Kay Green

      I’d say those are legitimate comments, you want to know where a candidate really stands, and there is nothing wrong with investigating the candidate and seeing what their true intentions are or what they have supported in the past Most people don’t do any research but just listen to the news and what they tell them, and that is part of the problem, they don’t know enough.

  • sebastianguy99

    More insults huh?

    Thank goodness for people like American, I’m with you…I’m want any president to do well because I want my country to do well.

    One of these three will win and I will refused to wish him anything but success.

    What a blessing to not be so emotionally invested in a candidate that I lose all objectivity and am reduced to insulting people who have never done anything to me except disagree about something political.

  • sebastianguy99

    And I guess by personal insults you folks demonstrate a level of maturity/awareness beyond mine? I mean people are citing polls in May as “proof” of electability. This of course ignores the fact that there is no correlation between May polls and final election.

    How sad you people …some of you…react emotionally will pretending to make intellectually honest arguments.

    Name my source? Yeah just as soon as LJ reveals his. I will tell you my sources are party officials I know through their children. I’ve known these people all of my life and trust what they tell me.

    I am no Obama troll, nor am I a registered Democrat. I support no candidate at this time. In fact, I find none of the three to be all that. I DID NOT VOTE FOR HIM IN MY STATE’S PRIMARY.

    I have no ax to grind, no candidate to champion. I just thought that I’d mention what I have heard as well as some impressions.

    I also offered the opinion that Obama seems to get stronger the more histrionic his detractors become; we’ve seen this before with Bill Clinton and the “scandals” he was alleged to have been responsible for.

    Sometimes people can go too far in their attacks such that they negate their credibility and end up helping the object of their scorn. I believe we are seeing this with Obama detractors. I cited examples in the special elections where people tried to defeat Democratic candidates by tying them to Obama and it did not work.

    Newt Gingrich has said the same thing by the way. This election is going to be about giving people something to vote for…not against.

    But thanks for the laughs..I mean “Barack Hussein Obama” types are just plain funny!

    Lastly, I repeat, in the South, the Clinton brand is not strong. While I believe Obama will likely lose, I am certain that Clinton will because for her to become the nominee would alienate a large portion of the Democratic base.

      Well then, there you have it. Sebastian99 has all the answers we were looking for. Thanks kiddo, your work is done here.

  • An American

    You folks seem to have forgotten that we are all on the same team. Whether the next president is McCain, Clinton, or Obama, I want them to succeed. Any of them would be much much better than the current president. And they need to be.

    We have a sinking economy, enormous trade deficit; oil is going through the roof, and we are fighting two wars and losing both. Honestly, I don’t give a rat’s ass about the age, race, or gender of the candidate, or what idiotic thing they or their spouse has said or done. No one goes through the meat grinder of a presidential run without loving this country enough to make it better.

    If you have actual issues that make you prefer one candidate to another, fine. I’m a Democrat, and I find the issue platforms of Clinton and Obama quite similar. I would vote for either over McCain, but I will support my president, whomever he or she may be. In the meantime, please stop acting like adolescents playing “gotcha.”

    • Nette60

      Thing is they have to be pro-American..which eliminates one

    • Brendy

      Hillary or McCain only! Obama and his wife are anti-white, anti-America. When their preacher wears garb that states “Africa” all over it, and preaches Black Libration Theology, and the Black Values System, then one begins to wonder…hmmmmm…. Those tapes of Wright will NEVER go away.

      In addition to that, I find BO and MO are arrogant and full of themselves – and MO is bitter, ungrateful and angry, like America (esp. whites) owes her something. I don’t like Obama’s policies, either (giving illegal aliens drivers licenses is only one of the differences he has between Hillary, and McCain, too).

  • mj

    Sebastian99…did you graduate from preschool in 99?

  • mj

    Sebastianguy…you are obviously 1 of 400 of Obama’s paid bloggers. I am a Republican and Obama would be way easier to beat than Hillary Clinton in the GE. Name your source in the Republican party. You can’t because you don’t have one. MO may be a lawyer but she has a BIG problem keeping her mouth shut. 20 years at that church and do you really think that she could keep that mouth shut for that long? by the way…you say that BO and MO aren’t stupid enough to be recorded saying explosive things…how about in San Francisco??? When the Huffington Post reported…

    Obama can be heard lamenting to a closed San Francisco fundraiser the plight of rural Americans. “You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them,”Obama said. “And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

    I think that there is a tape and much more than that. Barack Hussein Obama will never become the POTUS. I am not a Hillary fan but she has been DOGGED UNFAIRLY by the media.

  • umm

    so an obama supporter now knows there is a tape? man,you are so full of it.

  • sebastianguy99

    There is no tape. LJ is not the only person with contacts and resources. There is a rumor of a tape, but my sources inside the Republican party say they are looking high and low to keep the Rev. Wright angle going, as in tying Obama more closely to the sermons he said he never heard.

    So far they don’t have bunk. Also Ms. Obama works for a high powered law firm and it is doubtful that she has been running around making such statements because of the career ending effect they would have.

    Those of you who are lawyers know full well those who are Ms. Obama’s level within such a firm are anything but careless about their position and prospects within the firm.

    You my not like her or her husband, but they are not stupid people as in stupid enough to be recorded saying explosive things as alleged in this piece.

    Also the notion that they would rather face Clinton than Obama is not the consensus within the party. Most believe that Clinton would be easier to beat based on all the baggage and high unfavorables she carries. They also believe that Obama can win a state or two in the South whereas she will not win any southern states because of the deep hatred of the Clintons.

    Clinton also provides a lighting rod to heal the fractures and spark turnover that Obama does not.They are scared that Obama will cut into the evangelical vote because he is seen as more authentic and comfortable about religion.

    I get that this is an anti-Obama site, but there is nothing that indicates that the guy is going to be anything but tough to beat. So what he doesn’t get West Virginia/Kentucky, 30% of Democrats crossed over in 2000 and 2004 for Bush so to expect them to come to Clinton is false hope.

    Nope, Obama is going to have to be beaten fair and square. The scare tactic so far have not worked in the congressional elections(see the recent special elections where candidates were tied to Obama) nor have they done much for Clinton. In fact, it seems that dirty tactics just makes the guy stronger. Just look at how his numbers have rebounded from the 6 weeks of Rev. Wright. Not only that, but his unfavorables have gone down.

    So get ready to have to make a rational case to beat the guy because the emotional overwrought stuff ain’t doing the trick.

    So

    • libby

      You are completely wrong. Obama is a weak candidate and the many Hillary supporters who will vote for McCain this fall will be his undoing.

      Obama can’t win while Hillary can.

      Simple as that. You want proof? Here it is:

      Hillary has 319 electoral votes to win the Presidency.
      McCain has 202.

      Obama and McCain both have been short of the 270 electoral votes to win.

      You bots need to get your facts straight before trying to refute others. Typical uninformed troll.

      Try This as to her employment:

      Hope And Change My Ass: ‘Barack Obama Requested $1 Million Earmark For Michelle Obama’s Employer ‘
      Topics: Political News and commentaries

      In the list of earmarks requested by Barack (Hope and Change) Obama, $1 Million was requested for the construction of a new hospital pavilion at the University Of Chicago. The request was put in in 2006.

      Michelle Obama is vice president of community affairs at the University of Chicago Hospital. And you won’t believe the salary jump she got after Barack was elected to the Senate.

      Little wonder that Obama initially refused to release all earmark requests.

      THEN:

      Barack Obama Requested $1 Million Earmark Michelle Obama’s Employer…No worries, she didn’t ask him for it personally

      Hope or Change?

      Dan Riehl notes, via Amanda Carpenter, that in the list of earmarks he requested, $1 Million was requested for the construction of a new hospital pavilion at the University Of Chicago. The request was put in in 2006.

      You know who works for the University of Chicago Hospital?

      Michelle Obama. She’s vice president of community affairs.

      As Byron noted, “In 2006, the Chicago Tribune reported that Mrs. Obama’s compensation at the University of Chicago Hospital, where she is a vice president for community affairs, jumped from $121,910 in 2004, just before her husband was elected to the Senate, to $316,962 in 2005, just after he took office.”

      Looks like that raise was worth it.

      Oh wait, now comes the Obama’s version of the events:

      Kelly M. Sullivan, the medical center’s vice president for communications and marketing, noted that Mr. Obama had also requested money for a number of other hospitals in Illinois, and she said any lobbying for the money had been handled by the hospital’s government-affairs officials.
      “I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that Michelle Obama was not part of our lobbying over the request, not in any way,” Ms. Sullivan said. She said the hospital’s lobbyists often seek help on their own from both of the state’s senators.
      In other cases, Mr. Obama’s requests benefited political supporters.

      Allahpundit:

      Follow the link for details about those political supporters, to whom hope, change, and buckets of premium grade D.C. pork were duly delivered emblazoned with the “new type of politics” seal of quality. Exit question: Why would a guy burned by the appearance of impropriety in his dealings with Tony Rezko, to the point where he felt obliged to apologize for them, think earmarking money for his wife’s school was a swift idea?

  • StatBabe

    This topic has been up before about a possible video of Michelle Obama, and the one thing that makes me believe that it exists is that the Republicans are the ONLY ones who would use it, and they want to hold it for the Fall! Hillary knows better–the MSM would crucify her if she did something like that, not to mention the Democratic Party.

    Having said that, the one thing that I have noticed about ALL the comments, including the comments by Obama trolls, is that NO ONE even suggests that Michelle Obama is not capable of a racist diatribe. One person argues that she is “too sharp” to be caught on video blasting “whitey”, although she’s had her share of embarrassing videos just since this campaign started–certainly worse than anything out of Bill or Hillary, if you ask me (particularly that “first time” to be “proud” moment from Michelle). And there was an earlier poster who claimed that he had actually SEEN the video and that, taken in context, it was no big deal. Again, no one is claiming that Michelle does not have some hostility toward white people. The general question is whether she got caught on tape ranting about it.

    That should speak volumes about Obama’s prospects in November, even WITHOUT this theoretical video. Of course, the bigger question is whether Michelle Obama is enough to derail Barack Obama’s candidacy for POTUS. My guess it that it is. Just think about the people who reacted in a negative way to Teresa Heinz Kerry and used that as a reason to vote for the chimp in 2004. And I still remember my own father refusing to vote for Dukakis because his wife was a Jew–a pathetic reason, if you ask me, but that’s the screwy things that some people think about when they vote.

  • Fae

    Doesn’t Obama and his wife know “We’ve only just begun!”

    Is this tape held by the same people who said mccain had a black baby and said they had tape of george mcgoverns wife burning the american flag?

  • Steve

    I just want to add that it was bad enough watching and hearing Rev Wright cuss and trash our country. But now to hear that there are videos of Micelle doing the same!

    Our party is heading towards another George McGovern debacle. Its has been taken over by the extreme left, hate America crowd. I believe that Black community is being duped and used. Well i have beeb checking other bloggs..and speaking about video tapes..there is speculation that there may Larry Sinclair audio recordings between Larry and Donald Young, who knows, maybe there is video tapes of that alleged meeting between LS and Obama at that hotel room in Gurney Illinois. Mr. Sinclair has stated he has never released all of his evidence. As far as I can tell he is still standing, interview with Chicago PD regarding those phone conversations with Donald Young. Maybe we will seeing a greatest hits of Obama scandals soon to appear in threatres near you. How did we get into this mess? Maybe its time to call for the resignation of Howard Dean.

    Great post Larry- seems my comments are going out into nowhere today. Have I violated a rule???? I love NQ!

  • nancysabet

    Great piece Larry, thanks for sharing it. I just hope the tape come out soon rather than later, it would be too late if we want Hillary to win. However, she will win by the mere fact that she has the popular vote and won swing sates and is high in polls.

  • Fred C. Dobbs

    Whether the tape exists or is apochryphal is not particularly material. The woman WILL shoot herself in the foot with her mouth again.

      But if she does, remember – Barack told us to ‘lay off his wife’ and we aren’t ‘allowed’ to criticize her! Ohhhhhhhhhhh, I’m shakin’!

    The remarks that got me the worse was when she said she didn’t think she could vote for Hillary.

    Then when pressed on it, she said it would depend on her tone.

    Talk about your tone????

  • Tricia, Charlotte,NC

    I do not want this downright mean woman to be our First Lady. To represent this country to us this way is atrocious, how is she going to represent us to other countries???

    Interesting. BO and buddies got a “bye” on the gender question when HRC was there to attract all the misogyny. He NEVER addressed the issue although he was and is quick off the mark to see racism.

    If HRC is out of the race, some of that vitriol will, inevitably, pass to Mechelle. Anyone remember all the stuff said about HRC in ’92? We’ll see the same stuff. I wonder if Mechelle bakes cookies?

    Having said that, I don’t want to attack MO in gender-related ways. There’s just so much to attack her for otherwise: pride, “bad SATs” yet entry to Colombia, bump in salary after BO was “elected,” choice in churches, bad attitude and negativity. . .

    Really. How about we just call her BO’s evil twin???

    Thanks for the article, Larry. Also thanks for adding what Jeff Jacoby wrote. The statement made by Michelle, quoted below, has always been the one to raise red flags with me. I think Obama, Michelle, Axelrod and Co. want to change this country into something it was never meant to be. I will help anyone I’m able to help, within my circle of influence. But there is no way I’m giving my small piece of pie to MO or BO to “redistribute”.

    “Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone . . . Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual – uninvolved, uninformed

    There is something seriously wrong with this woman’s thought process.

    • Strawberry

      Why does George Orwell spring to mind when I read that quote?

    • so saddened

      agree. words like “allow” and “demand.” who the hell does she think she is/he is? last i heard, even if, as i fervently hope NEVER happens, her asshole husband gets elected, he will not be able to tell us whether to be cynical, stay in our comfort zones, be uninformed, be uninvolved, etc.

      of course, in the marxist world she envisions and hopes to be the queen of ….

      hillary or mccain. no other option.

    larry,

    i have a question?

    Is it possible that actual threats and possibly harm, has been made to the SD’s that have joined obama in droves?

    we keep wanting to think they have been paid off, and i am quite sure, many have.

    but what about the ones firmly in hillary’s corner, who have mysteriously went to the other side? it makes no sense…
    have you and your ‘sources’. ever looked into this possibility?
    i mean after all, we keep refering to the radical element that obama has on his side, it stands to reason, that something weird is going on…

  • Mel

    People tend to forget soemthing Michelle Obama stated at a fundraiser late last year towards Hillary:

    If you can’t keep your house in order, how can we expect you to keep the White House in order?

    Then asked of Michelle:

    If Clinton was the nominee, would you vote for her? long pause…“I don’t know, I’d have to think abou that!

    This along with her injection of the race card continually during the campaign has made Michelle Obama fair game for anything! And what is Barry going to do when she is revealed? Cry in a corner again, after all this isn’t Democrat against Democrat! This is for all the marbles!

    And a note, never once has Hilary ever stated anything against Michelle Obama, nor words like Michelle has towards Bill “I want to scratch his eyes out”, low lifes oare the Obama two! No way fit for POTUS peopleeeeeeee!

    • Dawnelle

      Can you even IMAGINE????

      Instead of the “scratch his eyes out” speaking of BILL C

      if BILL C speaking of Michelle O said something equally gender based like “I’d like to punch her in the kisser”

      how would THAT HAVE GONE OVER????

      YOU MOFO HYPOCRITE OBAMABOTS THAT’S WHEN YOU LOST ME. That and when BO said Hillary was “nice enough”

      muthafkr – I’d LIKE TO PUNCH him OUT myself and I’m (generally) a LADY!!

      lol

  • SKMF

    there are so many fraudulent hillary sites now.

    i’ll stick to what i know to be true, that would be larry…
    sorry…

    The Republicans just put Ted Griffin on the payroll according to MSNBC. Griffin

    “is returning to the Republican National Committee to handle the party’s opposition research against Obama”

    .

    So, what’s the skinny on Griffin?

    larry,

    if the republicans want to hold onto the tape till october, WHAT WOULD MAKE THEM CHANGE THEIR MINDS, AND WANT TO PUT IT OUT SOONER?

    and can we do it?

  • Billy

    This is such buIIsh*t. There is no such video. You think they’d be able to keep such a video to themselves with so many reporting to have seen it?

    There is a video of Michelle saying “whitey” but she’s quoting an older woman, and chiding her for her backwards attitude. Maybe a creative edit would make it appear Michelle feels this way, but I guarantee the Obama campaign has the video and would expose the manipulation.

    It would be incredibly destructive for the McCain campaign if they resorted to tactics like this.

    It’s pitiful how you’re now grabbing at straws to keep alive Hillary’s campaign. Even to the point of making up stories. Sickos.

    • bigkitty

      You troll with all the versatility of William Shatner acting…

      A nashville toupee…

        Or, god help us, Bill Shatner singing.

    • SKMF

      billy,

      dont be afraid, whatever happens, happens.
      be a good little obamabot and go home and be at peace.
      if there is no video, than you are safe right?

      on the other hand…

    • catherine

      Cry all you want. Your Manchurian candidate is going down..either by August or by November but he IS GOING DOWN.

    I don’t need a video showing Michelle Obama railing against ‘Whitey’ to think she’d make a disastrous First Lady. In her speeches already on record, she’s shown herself to be a self-centered hypocrite with a vicious streak. Axelrod knows she polls badly with audiences and has tried to keep her away from the microphone, unless she’s reading from a carefully prepared script. Like her husband, Michelle Obama’s small ventures into off-the-cuff land have been uniformly disastrous.

    People who actually look at Obama’s record and performance objectively have to be gravely concerned about the ignorance he has displayed about economics, foreign relations, domestic relations, healthcare, world geography, and even basic geography of the USA. As Senator from Illinois, he didn’t even realize that his state shares a border with Kentucky.

    Added to that, Obama, the candidate for Change, has never pursued anything but an old-style Chicago backroom type of political campaign, and Obama the Washington Outsider has surrounded himself with lobbyists and political fixers.

    So, people who have been paying attention to the facts, and not going along for the joyride of Hope and Change will already have serious reservations about Obama. Added to this is the fact that Obama allowed spurious charges of racism to be levelled at the Clintons by his operatives, and he stood by and said nothing while vile sexist language was used to degrade Clinton.

    Obama never had the support of a large part of the electorate, and these people dislike him more and more as time goes by. Neither the Obamas nor Axelrod has denied the existence of the ‘Whitey’ tape. By itself, such a tape could be excused as youthful passion now soberly reconsidered. But added to all the other evidence that this pair have nothing positive to offer Americans, it could well be the coup de grace for Obama’s candidacy.

    One can only hope the DNC takes the possibility of its existence seriously and acts accordingly.
