Skip to comments.Obama Affair Rumors Reinforced
Posted on 10/25/2008 3:53:05 PM PDT by MaryAnne
Blackfive, a popular conservative blog, interviewed a person with, he and Blackfive say, knowledge about Barack Obamas professional and possibly private relationship with one of his (former) staffers, most likely named Vera Baker, according to the source. You can listen to the interview below, in which the source explains how he found out about it.
Fascinating is that the source, Wolf, says that the dirt on this story was dug up by Hillary Clintons campaign. They planned to put the story out there before the Democratic Convention, but failed to find enough hard evidence.
Wolf says that they have found witnesses who confirmed the stories privately, but not publicly yet.
Three news entities are sitting on the story, Wolf said, at least one of them ready to go public soon; but not before, but after the elections. The reasons for them not sharing the story now, Wolf said, is two fold:
1. They dont want to influence the outcome of the elections (also because they support Obama)
2. The most important reason, in Wolfs eyes at least: they want to make money. What sells better and over a longer period; a candidate had an affair, or a sitting president or president-elect had? The second one of course.
At this moment we cannot possibly know whether Obama did indeed cheat on his wife Michelle. It could very well be that he did not do any such thing, and that the rumors are just that; empty, vicious rumors. When that becomes clear, those who said he did cheat, will be held accountable.
However, when something like this becomes increasingly important in the new media, its our duty to report it, whether we personally like it or not. Additionally, if the story is correct, it will cause a tremendous political earthquake.
What is clear is that this subject is not going away any time soon and, considering the sources - the conservative bloggers touting this story have been quite reliable, albeit biased and partisan, in the past - could play a role after November 4.
As for my personal opinion: its certainly worth reporting, both the rumor and if the story is proven correct / a major news organization runs with it, but it is insane that private relationships can cost someone elections and political support. Personal relationships have nothing to do with how good someone will govern; in fact, some of the greatest men and political leaders in history were serial cheaters.
It won’t matter, nothing this man does seems to matter. It is as though he is the AntiChrist...too scary for words.
Last paragraph is lib/dem twisted logic perfected. Heaven forbid they would consider it important for a president (or candidate) to be of sound judgment and good character.
Lack of character was a resume enhancement for Clinton, 0bama just taking a page from the book....
OH RLY? Name the great political leaders in our nation's history who were serial cheaters. I do not think Thomas Jefferson was unfaithful to his wife. Nor was Washington, despite grave temptation. Nor Madison. Nor Monroe. Nor Jackson. Nor Lincoln. Nor Reagan.
None of this matters and never will. The key is getting out the message that the polls are flat out LYING. That the media has played a blatant game of deception in skewing this in favor of a democrat. The key is daily showing the video of Obamatrash mocking Joe The Plumber and asking America if Obama is laughing at all us Joes. The key is getting off your behinds and getting out there and voting knowing that no media outlet is going to tell you how this thing is going to turn out until all those votes are counted. PRAY, pass on words of complete enthusiasm and support to other McCain/Palin supporters. Remind them that if Obamatrash were truly winning the efforts by the biased media would not be as crazed and blatant. They couldn't pull off the ruse four years ago and they know they can't pull it off again but they hope by stepping up their efforts and out right lying about polls currently this will be the angle that gets them victory. It's all they've got left. Don't buy it and tell two friends and so on an so on and so on. VOTE DAMN IT!! McCain and Palin are winning and they know it!!!
This guy make Clinton look respectable.
I don’t care if Obama had an affair. I don’t care if Obama cheated on his wife. But please, for the sake of public decency, do not post the name of the guy Obama is sleeping with.
Non-issue. Democrats do not care about their people having affairs.
He is such an egomaniac, he is sleeping with himself. ;-)
For the Obama supporters this is a resume enhancer!
In more ways than one. If we thought the Clintons used the government for payback on people they didn't like just get ready for the king of all paybacks!
Joe the Plumber was just a warm-up!
I already think the government agencies like the IRS are run by Affirmative Action gone wild. Just wait until Mr. Reparations takes over.
What color is Vera Baker? Unless she’s white as snow, this will go nowhere. On the other hand, Obama screwing around with a white girl could piss off a LOT of black female voters and this close to election day, they could stay pissed off long enough to skip voting or even (gasp) vote for McCain.
The people either should provide the evidence or they should drop it. The Socialist New Party info has legs because there's evidence.
This supposed scandal actually hurts McCain if there's no evidence to back it up. It's too easy to shoot it down.
I thought an affair was a prereq for the Dems
You are right about this. I doubt if Democrats would even care if Obama had an affair with a farm animal. You see, they’re nonjudgmental and oh so tolerant!
They haven’t needed to refute Larry so the beard isn’t necessary.
