Obama Evening Wrap Up. Hoax.

Michelle in Akron, Ohio


Hoax, Lies and Irresponsibility

The story stemming from the Ashley Todd incident, the young woman who made up the story that she was "politically attacked" by a "black man" because she supports McCain goes beyond her mental instability, it goes to the McCain Campaign pushing this potential race baiting story.

This story was pushed from Drudge and FOX News linked onto it. These outlets purposely pushed this story as race baiting, that is the fact. It was so important for FOX that their executive VP of news wrote this:

If Ms. Todd’s allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee.


If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.

Now the question is this, is McCain forever linked to race-baiting? His campaign is alleged to have pushed this story just for that effect.
John McCain's Pennsylvania communications director told reporters in the state an incendiary version of the hoax story about the attack on a McCain volunteer well before the facts of the case were known or established -- and even told reporters outright that the "B" carved into the victim's cheek stood for "Barack," according to multiple sources familiar with the discussions.

John Verrilli, the news director for KDKA in Pittsburgh, told TPM Election Central that McCain's Pennsylvania campaign communications director gave one of his reporters a detailed version of the attack that included a claim that the alleged attacker said, "You're with the McCain campaign? I'm going to teach you a lesson."

Verrilli also told TPM that the McCain spokesperson had claimed that the "B" stood for Barack. According to Verrilli, the spokesperson also told KDKA that Sarah Palin had called the victim of the alleged attack, who has since admitted the story was a hoax. continue

Now this information was pumped before the police gave any statement. This information was pushed by McCain Communications Director in Pennsylvania.

The time has come down to it getting scummy, nasty and dirty. It is quite obvious that the young woman who concocted this story has issues, mental. It is obvious that the McCain Campaign must win Pennsylvania, former Governor Tom Ridge stated so. It is obvious that the McCain Campaign has nothing, agenda wise, to offer this country but the continuous divisive tactics.

Lastly, why are any "known journalists" even if they are on FOX, believing or listening to Matt Drudge? This site has always been yellow journalistic, rumor mongering bullshit. Has he been right on some things? Yes, but he has been wrong on much more. Anyone repeating Drudge and not doing the due diligence of fact checking needs to be called out, like FOX NEWS and Sean Hannity.

It is the repeat of bullshit from these outlets that just make people not want to believe ANYTHING that is stated on television, anymore.

Michelle Obama fills in for husband in swing state Ohio
The wife of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama spoke passionately about her working class roots Friday as she filled in for her husband who has rushed to be with his ailing grandmother.

"So as many of you may know, Barack is off the campaign trail today. He flew to Hawaii last night to see his grandmother, who we call 'Toot,'" Michelle Obama told a televised rally in Columbus, Ohio. "She is doing OK."

She credited 85-year-old Madelyn Dunham, who helped raise the Illinois senator, as giving her husband an inner strength that has helped him thrive.

"He said the other night -- he said, 'You know, I got my toughness from Toot,'" she said. "Because she taught him with her quiet confidence and that love and support that he could do anything, just deep love and admiration."

Campaigning for her husband in the pivotal Midwestern state of Ohio, Obama described with admiration her own parents' working class values. continue
