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?
Has Sarah Palin every appeared at a NASCAR race? What was the crowd’s reaction?
Did she get booed?
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.
She hated them first.
And it gives the left a chance to say, “OMG! Those rednecks were booing the first lady who was trying to respect the troops!”
Maybe they were booing the color co-ordination of her outfit. It's the help's fault.
ABC owes all parrots an apology.
I’m still waiting for evidence as to why this couple is the smartest to occupy the White House.
I’ll give Biden & Mizz Obama a hint: No, the crowd was not booing the military.
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!!!
Hopefully, some good folks also gave Mooch-elle the one-fingered “Obama IQ” salute.
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.
The WH and the Establishment Media: Stupid enough to think we are stupid enough.
Those NASCAR people were NOT booing. They were chanting: “Mooooooooooochelle” which just sounded like a cow.
LOL! Never mind the traffic nightmare from the race itself. *shudder!*
One things for sure. The MSM wasn’t there to really know what was going on.
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!
I guess they were racists /sarcasm
(My guy lost but Tony drove a helluva race.)
it will be up and coming... but they won;t report that Cain would be applauded.
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?”
This past weekend at the game she shut up and never said a word LOL
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.
What kind of man would send his wife to get boo’d?
Oh crap, I have to be around these people?
I’d rather be eating caviar and setting on the beach in Spain.
Good thing I had my shots.
An excellent point and correct perspective.
She probably has her headphones hooked up to her iPod and listening to Common.
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.
