ABC Parrots White House Spin for Booing of Michelle Obama: 'Not Clear' What Intent Was
Newsbusters ^ | 11/21/11 | Scott Whitlock

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.

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 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 remember a couple of election cycled back the Dem strategists claimed to be focusing on “NASCAR Dads”? The MSM repeated this with a straight-face. Truthfully, there’s a cultural disconnect at work here & the other side just chooses to ignore it.

Maybe they were booing because of the traffic nightmare the First Lady caused.

Maybe they were booing the color co-ordination of her outfit. It's the help's fault.

America hating Obama and his evil, destructive, racistl wife Michelle are living in Never, Never Land!!! They hate NASCAR & all it stands for. For goodness sake, sheeple, it took almost the “dirt bags” almost three years to begin their charade about supporting the US Military. And.....you now think they support NASCAR and Country music??? Forget it!!!

LOL - I remember that. Howard Dean was trying to pass himself off as a NASCAR dad. This was a few months before he self destructed with his "I have a scream" speech.

They were specifically for the same reasons that fans threw cups and trash onto the track when john (I was in Vietnam) kerry did the same thing... we despise her hating America and her black liberation theology... he marxist ideology and her spending more than most of us will see in a lifetime of work... on just ONE of her many PAID FOR BY US vacations... and her constantly trying to pass laws to control our entire lives.

Hey don't laugh. In today's Wall St Journal OP/Ed section, Patrick Caddell the Democrap pollster, launches the idea of Hildabeast as the next presidential candidate, because, in part she "served as first lady" and is the most qualified candidate for president, including the current president AND hubbie Bubba!

NASCAR: 99 percent Republican and Conservative

First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Bidden: 100 percent Democrat and Liberal

First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Bidden getting booed at NASCAR: Expected.

Sending First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Bidden to NASCAR event: Political move by Whitey Hut to show how racist / anti-government / dangerous / disrespectful NASCAR fans are.

News Media / Liberal / Democrat Supporters reaction to First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Bidden getting booed at a NASCAR event: Gnashing of teeth and wailing.

Considering how fans can boo the drivers (example: Kyle Bush), I thought their reaction to Moochie and the doc was courteously muted.

at my youngest sons soccer game and there is a woman who feels that her liberal views are so important we all have to hear it and how the right are NAZIS.
I pulled her up i front of her friends last week and asked if Cain is dumb because of the Libya comment and Perry is dumb due to his comments about which dept he would cut then does it make obama dumb because of the 57 states, Corpse instead of corps, Sioux falls and sioux city etc.
“ no, Well he’s smart , he went to Harvard she said”

I then asked based on what , what grades did he get at school then?”

No answer.

This past weekend at the game she shut up and never said a word LOL

Dear Josh,

That was mild compared to what the booing would have been had the military NOT BEEN THERE!

Moochelle and Dr. Jill used the military for cover! Most people don't show up where they aren't welcome!

You’re correct. They didn’t dare put them out in the open.

Back in either 1992 or 1996 Clinton went to Atlanta which was then the last race of the season. When introduced you could hear the crowd boo in the background plain as day on TV.

These stupid people don’t learn their lesson about messing with NASCAR fans.

On the other hand whenever Reagan or either Bush attended the people couldn’t cheer loud enough.

What IS clear to me is they didn’t put moochie there by herself.
There wouldn’t be any question about boos and their intentions.

Another leftist trick. They’re all snakeoil salesmen, smoke and mirrors.

Of course they would. The only one worth their salt at ABC is Jake Tapper (IMO).

I stopped watching them long ago...ads that drunken display of 0bamalove by Dianne Sawyer the night of the inauguration sealed ot for me. Never again.

I hope they enjoy what they have wrought, the entire dishonest media.
