Skip to comments.ABC Parrots White House Spin for Booing of Michelle Obama: 'Not Clear' What Intent Was
Posted on 11/21/2011 10:12:07 AM PST by Nachum
Good Morning America on Monday repeated White House talking points in regard to the booing of Michelle Obama at a NASCAR event on Sunday. News reader Josh Elliott played a clip of the booing and then parroted, "The White House says it was a chaotic event. It was not clear, perhaps, what the boos were specifically for."
The Today show didn't cover the event at all. On the Early Show, Jeff Glor linked, "Some people booed [Michelle Obama and Jill Biden] when they showed up last night. They were on hand to honor military troops and their families." So, is the implication that NASCAR fans were booing the military?
Co-host Erica Hill later repeated, "At other sporting events, this has happened as well. Not everybody always happy but they were there as part of their joining forces initiative to highlight military families."

Maybe they were booing because of the traffic nightmare the First Lady caused.
Bwahaha.......................sure. Honestly what did White House think was going to happen?
Anything to protect their kenyan overlord.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
They weren’t booing, they were cheering her beloved nickname...
These news people are completely clueless....
might have something to do wit5h her hypocrisy, youn know like telling us all to eat healthy and watch what we eat while she stuffs herself with lobster, ribs, fries, ice cream and on top of that she is not even thin but has a massive wide load .
Have they mentioned the word “racism” yet?
I think they were booing the very thought that this noble lady and her god-like spouse would even be opposed for re-election next year, much less defeated. What else could it be?
NASCAR fans booing a black person. Seems pretty straight forward to me </sarc>
Clueless and disingenuous.
Nascar tried to shield Mooch & Jill Biden behind some kids and a veteran because they knew what would happen if it was just Mooch & Jill starting the race.
I can’t believe the White House thought it would turn out any other way, and I said that when they announced this plan.
I suppose next the Whitehouse will try the “They were booing Jill Biden, NOT Michelle Obama” meme.
I wonder just how much of the race she stayed for. 5-10 laps?
Good find...I thought the crowd was shouting “a-ROOOOOO-gu-la”, in honor of her favorite veggie.
I just watched a newscast with Obama.
He was followed by Michelle . What was that?
They are co-Faux-Presidents now?
