Obama Has Secret Groups On His Website To Smear Cindy McCain, Others
ABC News’ Jennifer Parker reports: Presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said conservative criticism of his wife, Michelle, infuriates him.
“I don’t have a thick skin when it comes to criticism of my wife,” Obama told the women’s magazine Glamour in an interview to run in the magazine’s October issue. “And you know, the problem is that rarely do these folks have the guts to say it to your face.”
Obama now controls the DNC — why, after he flatly says families should not be brought into the race, is his party and campaign still not disowning or asking supporters to stop, even on his own web site? Yes, there are differences. The attacks on Michelle are driven by persona while those about Cindy McCain, so far, are about her family wealth and how it relates to her husband, as well as vile personal attacks on McCain’s divorce which his ex-wife says are not true.
Take a look at one of the more recent deceits from Jamal Simmons, who works for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) said on CNN a couple of days ago that Cindy McCain’s wealth generates a “red flag” he criticized her for having 8 houses, says that makes the McCains out of touch, and claims that the McCain campaign isn’t being financially transparent.
Here is the video – notice that CNN is doing its usual job by pitching two leftists and a biased moderator against one conservative, Amanda Carpenter.
How does all of this square with the comments of Barack Obama himself back in June:
“I would never consider making Cindy McCain a campaign issue and if I saw people doing that—I would speak out against it,”
Mrs. McCain is reportedly worth more than $100 million due to the beer distribution company she inherited from her parents, Hensley & Company. The McCain’s keep their finances separate and Senator McCain has recused himself from Senate votes on alcohol issues.
Some Democrats, like Jamal Simmons, say the McCain campaign is hiding information Mrs. McCain’s wealth. Ironically, the information about her credit card debt, that he uses, comes from Mr. McCain’s Senate financial disclosure forms, readily available on the Internet through the Center for Responsive Politics.
All of this is part of a cynically crafted smear run by Obama’s political operatives, to give the appearance that Obama has no part in all of this. He speaks the high-minded words, and his official and non-official surrogates do the attacks. If anything back-fires too much (like the Wesley Clark smear on McCain’s experience and POW ordeal) the campaign and Obama throw them under the bus.
Wouldn’t it be great if Obama finally posted on his web site, and emailed all his supporters his own words, and demanded that they stop?:
“We can no longer afford to build ourselves up by tearing someone else down. We can no longer afford to traffic in lies or fear or hate. It is the poison that we must purge!”
Don’t hold your breath.
The elitists at the Obama campaign have decided that they are morally and intellectually superior to everyone else, so it is alright for them to question others, but not acceptable to do the same to Obama, simply because he is Obama. Those who dare to fight back or merely disagree with their tactics or one particular issue, are branded as “distractions” publicly and smeared as racists or lunatics by their “Rapid Response Groups” minions, who use the Internet to spread carefully crafted smears.
In the coming weeks, we will have more on the nasty little secret of the Obama Campaign…..their very own official groups that spread false information, smear others, in a methodical and officially sanctioned manner. These groups have a thousand members, and a core membership, directed by Obama Campaign Headquarters, and post thousands of “responses” (mostly smears and lies) daily on media websites and blogs, Digg, Face Book, StumbleUpon, etc. The members each use dozens of persona’s and even shared accounts, to “stuff the ballot box”–make it appear far more agree or disagree with whatever they are targeting. It is an insidious perversion and manipulation of our Democratic system.
Several independent Bloggers and reporters have spent months as “trusted” members of these groups, and the official and unofficial emails and posts from the members and moderators of these groups, (all secret, kept from public and media eyes) will truly leave you shocked and (probably not) amazed. We will be presenting independently authenticated emails from the campaign to these groups, emails from group members and moderators, along with the members IP addresses, and the actual names of some of the more notorious members, along with the documented screen names on various sites these fascist-like operatives use.
Stay tuned…..more to come!
