Very clever tactic by the Obama campaign — launching a Web site called “Fight the Smears,” pushing the idea that any negative information about Obama is a vicious right-wing lie.
Notice how Team Obama presents the rumor that Michelle Obama had been captured in a recording using the slur “whitey” in a Rev. Wright-style rant:
On May 30th, Rush Limbaugh said he had heard a rumor that a tape exists of Michelle Obama using the word “Whitey” from the pulpit of Trinity United Church of Christ.
No such tape exists. Michelle Obama has not spoken from the pulpit at Trinity and has not used that word.
The brilliant trick here is to suggest that the “whitey” video rumor originated with Limbaugh, which it did not. In other words, only a (presumably non-credible) right-winger could be behind such mischief. Getting out front with the idea that Obama will be the victim of “smears” is a way of preparing supporters to dismiss as invalid any criticism of Obama’s record or of his associations with Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, Tony Rezko, etc.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
