Obama's Chicago politics. Is this the change he wants to bring? What did Obama know and when did he know it?

I’m pretty sure it is racist to accuse BO of this.

I am sure with computer tracing now and security cameras they have traced the computer and time it happened and already reviewed the security cameras and know who did it.

Bump.. I still bet 4Channers are being scapegoats for this... it doesn’t follow their modus. They don’t write as coherently as the ‘confession’, and their ‘performance art’ (ie hacking) is always to deface, not to get information.. I think they are being made scapegoats for someone higher on the food chain.

Unlike Nixon's henchmen, tthese liberal sissys will break within 5 minutes tops. They will roll over so fast just to get back home to the confines of their mommy's basement.

Watch the intellectual whiplash from these libs-Watergate bad, Palingate harmless.

Watergate, Nixon and his people had every right to go into the Democrat headquarters for national security reasons.

They were just dumb and tried to cover it up instead of telling the American people what was going on..

"Was the Obama campaign involved?"

Well I don't see a problem here. If people in the Obama campaign were involved they can continue campaigning from their jail cells. And if Nobama wins, he will simply pardon them.

Obama can not win on the issues, on love of country, or experience, what other alternative did he have than to try destroy a good and decent American woman named Sarah Palin.

My take on the Palin email faux story...

Plant the story that the Gov uses personal email for state business.
Hack her personal email.
Manufacture fake but accurate government business email and distribute to the press at the most opportune time (from the Obama perspective).

Perhaps timing of the "Alaskian Inquisition's" Spense wasn't a coincidence.

McCain/Palin must get out front of this story and raise questions about the authenticity of anything "official" that hits the news wires.

That's what I was thinking. This was not a "hack", apparently. Her password was probably something like trig123 and someone figured it out.

They have no problem speculating about what MIGHT have been in the e-mails so...

I am not an expert but frequently thay mean the same. However, sometimes a system is 'weak' and the password can be bypassed. I remember reading about how a certain key combination would open all accounts in a certain application. Sometimes software developers put in back-door ways to access so they don't have to go through the normal tedious sequences to get to certain parts of their software applications. Done to speed up development and testing of software.

Hey Obama...maybe John McCain wasn’t so dumb after all for not using email....eh?

Oh, and by the way....just how DID you and your campaign know with certainty that he doesn’t use it... hmmmm??

Something smells fishy.

It's the 'Chicago way', dontcha know.

It would be schweet, if it could be traced back to someone at Obama HQ. It would certainly let people see, for real, the kind of 'change' he wants. I'm thinking they'll want no part of that.

I think you're right. Whoever it/they are who take "care of" these types of crimes made sure before it happened that it would be well-buried and forgotten about in a very short period of time.

For as we all know, there is one code of behavior acceptable for the Democrats, and an entirely different one acceptable for the Republicans & Independents. And that won't change anytime soon.

That's Mark Levin's nickname for Obama...and it is funny...

But the issue of some Numb Nuts hacker invading Gov. Palin's privacy is no laughing matter. This is completely out of control, and unless Obama's minions contain it, he could very well find himself embroiled in a rather messy court proceeding.

May also have to do with trying to distract attention from the Amir Taheri stories about Obama interfering with our negotiations with Iraq.

This is child’s play. Is anyone looking into 3 unsolved murders (execution style) of members of Wright’s church? Barry’s phone records that will either exonerate Barry or prove Larry is a liar? Degrees of separation between a dead gay choir director, Larry, Barry, Joe, and Beau? Computer hacking is peanuts!

Honest question for you, and anyone that followed the Watergate scandal.

Would it have mattered if the hotel door was left unlocked, as opposed to the "plumbers" breaking in? If the charges and the scandal would have been the same (ie...stolen campaign material) then doesn't that mean that IF the Obama campaign is behind this mess, they still deliberately stole the emails?

After all, if they just guessed the password, vs actually "hacking" the system, they still stole the emails, right?

That picture is funny to me because I work in a hospital where we have similar mobile workstations. They used to be referred to as a “COW” which stood for Computer On Wheels. Well, it is now official policy that they have to be referred to as a “WOW” (Workstation on Wheels) because a patient objected when they heard someone say “wheel the COW into that room”.

If they had full access to Sarah's email account - why not write a few 'government' emails - supposedly from Sarah to whoever they pick from her contact list?

They could make up & write an email saying anything they choose to make her look bad.
