Target: Barack Obama faces
rumours about his private life
Barack Obama is the target of a shadowy smear campaign designed to derail his bid for the US Presidency by falsely claiming he had a close friendship with an attractive African-American female employee.
The whispers focus on a young woman who in 2004 was hired to work on his team for his bid to become a senator.
The woman was purportedly sidelined from her duties after Senator Obamas wife, Michelle, became convinced that he had developed a personal friendship with her. The allegations were initially circulated in August, just two weeks before the convention at which Obama finally beat his opponent for the Democratic Party nomination, Hillary Clinton.
The woman, now 33, vigorously denies the vicious and unsubstantiated gossip.
And some Washington insiders suggested that she was the victim of an 11th-hour attempt to smear Obama by die-hard Hillary supporters.
But now the rumours have resurfaced, suggesting that they may be coming from elements in the Republican Party....
Denial: The woman, whose
identity we have protected,
rejected the claims

If he’s gonna play, he’s gonna pay...
Imagine Michelle with her own office in one wing of the White House. I doubt she’s going to limit her duties to redecorating.
This seems as if it was brought up by Obama with the intent of diverting attention from the candidates positions on the issues and his relationship with domestic terrorism.
In addition, the alleged rumor provides cover for Obama in the light of the Sinclair affair and the candidate’s less than manly reputation.
It would undoubtably be best to just ignore this bait.
I'm more worried about his time as Consigliere' to ACORN, his discipleship under Bombin' Billy Ayers, the Rapin' Radical, and how much influence Tony Rezko has with him. I'm worried about how Chicago thug politics could take over America if B. Hussein is elected. I'm worried that terrorists and dictators all over the world are drooling at the prospect of an Obama Presidency because they know they'll have 4-8 years to run wild. I'm worried that Obama's economic prescriptions will put America into a Depression that rivals the 1930's (the last time Government tried to get us out of a Recession).
Agreed, but this article isn't about Obama: it's a blatant attack on the Republicans and McCain.
KNOW IT> BELIEVE IT>
We can’t waste time on this.
Sinclair says he is gay.
This is a smoke screen - Obama is the one that put it out to get the pressure off his ACORN-Birth certificate-terrorist loving rumors.
If Mccain was using the Art of War as his guide he would immediatly come out and say not only did they not start the rumor they know it is false. It was a Democrat within his own campaign camp that tried to sell it to them. They told him to get lost.
Why is when it’s said against Obama, it’s a “smear”.
When it’s said against McCain or Palin, it’s a “charge”.
This is a nothingburger. Fabricated by liberal media to allow Obama to use it as a throwaway line of some sort and skate on the real associations.
“Last week they had me palling around with terrorists. This week I’m having an affair. They need to make up their mind on the smears.”
Not only that — this is the first I’d heard of it. And I’ve been trying to track BO weak spots daily for several weeks.
Its hard to kiss the lips that have been chewing your a** all day.
perhaps the reporter knows that the rumors about this affair are untrue because the subject was busy having an affair with the reporter at the time and so the reporter knew exactly where the subject was at all times.
Settin’ up his ‘Het’ cred.
At this point he could have sex with goats in the street and this is the LEAST THING about him that would upset me. Odinga/Wright/Acorn/Ayers/Rezko/Guilannis/Farrakhan
that is scary crap. i think is gay or bi anyway.
Thats a Red Herring to throw everyone off that he is having an affair with an attractive woman (FEMALE!!). Larry Sinclair has been fully vindicated now and proven truthful.
The Obamaites want us to believe that Obama is not gay, nor has he ever had an affair with William Ayers, the America Hating Terrorist who is NO DIFFERENT than Timothy McVeigh except for Ayer’s Incompetence! AYERS WAS, IS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE A WRETCHED TERRORIST and may be OBAMA’s PUPPETEER!
....Now they have covered themselves and can claim they go after everybody....
Same tactic as “ By the way, they say I am black”. So all who are against him are racist, lying, fearmongering mentally challenged rednecks who do not appreciate the gift that Obama is to this nation.
Journalism is dead.
This is a distraction to turn the eyes and ears away from Acorn, Ayers, Rezko, Fannie, Freddie, Kenya, etc.
