boy it sure would be nice if it was an Obama operative
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.
I don’t think this will go away for a while.
EVERYONE is mad about breaking into personal email.
Good job 0bama
Hackergate. Start impeachment hearings against Barack Milhous Obama now.
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.
We will never know. Move on.
Obama’s supporters wouldn’t be that stupid... would they?
I don’t think that this Chicago link is conclusive. As the proxy server operator G. Rodriguez says in this link’s comment section.
Yeah, but Watergate type investigations only apply to Republicans.
My, my, My Politics as usual!!!!!
We must break this wide open.
O Reilly....nah never mind him
Local Radio..........CALL IN LOCAL RADIO STATIONS AND JUST THROW THE QUESTION OUT....IS IT TRUE...I JUST HEARD....
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..
No surprise. The Daley Machine wants O to win.
“Barack Milhous Obama’
Rev-rund Wright: “The Chickens, are coming hoo ...om, to ROOST!”
Wow ... didn't see that one coming ...
I can’t believe anyone would even insinuate that a Chicago Democrat would ever do anything even remotely underhanded or criminal!
Well we know from his ads that Barak Obama KNOWS how to use a computer. Maybe he lets his nerdy side out late at night.
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.
I’m SHOCKED. Shocked, I tell ya!
Is there a difference between ‘hacking’ and figuring out someone’s account password?
The Sexist Pig, is still a sexist pig with or without lipstick.
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.
typical Chicago thuggery.
>>boy it sure would be nice if it was an Obama operative
Why should you have any doubts?
"Let's see, 'moose' . . . no . . . 'lipstick' . . . no, hmmm . . .
Let's try 'pitbull' . . . Yes! That's it! I'm in!"
“Obamas supporters wouldnt be that stupid... would they?”
That's what I was thinking. This was not a "hack", apparently. Her password was probably something like trig123 and someone figured it out.
Pubs need to just start making the link and letting the people consider for themselves the obama connection.
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.
Arrogance always breeds a mindset of over-reach.
After all, they are 'above it all'.
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 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.
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.
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.
It’s doubtful this was an Obama staffer, they showed the kid playing counter strike...
Correct you are. Remember DEBATEGATE? The caught the RAT operative via the security camera at the post office.
“Old Tricky Dick is back, but this time he’s black.” :)
May also have to do with trying to distract attention from the Amir Taheri stories about Obama interfering with our negotiations with Iraq.
security cameras? where?
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!
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”.
They could make up & write an email saying anything they choose to make her look bad.
