On Alleged “Whitey” Tape of Michelle
There has been a buzz for a few weeks that a tape exists of Michelle using the word "whitey" to refer to whites.
Like can we get some more "whiteys" up front...? Actually it's more like the rantings and ravings of Rev. Wright and Fr. Pfleger.
Inquiring minds are now asking, "Will Obama throw Michelle under the bus...?
I worked my butt off to elect Jim Webb. And Tim Kaine. I will not lift a pinkie to elect Obama; and yes, I might even vote for McCain.
Rumors are rumors, though. Hillary is supposed to be lip lockin' with one of her female staffers, if you believe the rumors. Dubya's people trashed McCain back in 2000 by saying he had an illegitimate black daughter. This rumor is probably no different.
We will see, won't we?
I continue to be astounded that your hostility toward Obama runs so very deep that you'd seriously talk about voting for McCain, but that you consider rumor-mongering from Republican Rove-bots legitimate is astounding. Who is this Roger guy, and why does he look so stoned? And even IF there were such a tape, which right now seems to exist only in the realm of rumor and innuendo, then why would an off-comment by Michelle Obama be considered a substantive defect on the part of Barack Obama? If you want to establish that as the standard then you're certainly setting up Hillary for deep criticisms based on some of the ridiculous comments Bill has uttered over the past few months. And you certainly don't want to go back very far in time to some of Bill's other negative behaviors. Good lord, it would be far worse than the pot calling the kettle black if that's where you wanted to go with this.
So, go ahead and say you'll vote for McCain. No doubt you would revel in an Obama defeat; but when McCain gives us more of the same old crap for four years and appoints even more conservative Supreme Court justices and advocates continuation of the Iraq war and of executions and of all the other Republican policies which have put this country in a big hole, please don't complain. You'll have become part of the problem.
If it's Obama losing, then yes I do think she will revel in a loss. There are tactful ways in which to point out your opponent's weaknesses but HL has opted to go for the throat using Republican talking points, rumor, and innuendo. So as an Obama supporter, I'm supposed to be happy that HL has helped spread Republican talking points for Clinton? I'll do my best to be magnanimous but I don't know if HL or her ilk will be willing to shake hands and get to the point of defeating Republicans.
HL, you do realize that Roger Stone is the person who formed an anti-Clinton organization called Citizens United Not Timid? Are you sure you want to hitch your wagon to this clownish, misogynistic moron?
