The quotations come back redacted, stripped of colorful metaphors, colloquial language and anything even mildly provocative.
They are sent by e-mail from the Obama headquarters in Chicago to reporters who have interviewed campaign officials under one major condition: the press office has veto power over what statements can be quoted and attributed by name.

I am sure once they find every black who was offended by the Mormon religion and every black who is still waiting for their money from the black farmer reparations scam (thanks to BO) they will start vetting the president.
I am sure they will find at least one person in the USA or the world for that matter who knows why BO and the first wookie were forced to surrender their licence to practice law.

Maybe every Freeper could call/write their local media outlets and ask the question of why these two were forced to surrender their licenses we might just find that one person who knows why. It is not a big thing to ask of the Freeper community as it would take less time than we spend on the FR everyday.
