Booman at the Boom Tribune reports on the so-called smear tape of Michelle Obama, being peddled by Larry Johnson, one of Hillary Clinton's strongest supporters:
From what I understand, it is a tape of Michelle Obama criticizing the Bush administration.
How you'd write it:Why did Bush cut folks off medicaid?
Why did Bush let New Orleans drown?
Why did Bush do nothing about Jena?
Why did Bush put us in Iraq for no reason?
How you'd say it:Why'd he cut folks off medicaid?
Why'd he let New Orleans drown?
Why'd he do nothing about Jena?
Why'd he put us in Iraq for no reason?
How Larry Johnson wants you to hear it:Whitie cut folks off medicaid?
Whitie let New Orleans drown?
Whitie do nothing about Jena?
Whitie put us in Iraq for no reason?
I'm going to be honest with you. Both SusanHu and Larry Johnson have been friends of mine. They have both done a lot for me and I am grateful and indebted to them. Any issues I've had with their activities in this election I have kept private. I haven't visited their site in four months because I found it too personally painful to read what they were writing and I did not want to be tempted to respond. I thought I owed them that. But loyalty can only go so far. If they publish this allegation tomorrow, I will no longer speak with them. And I say that with great sorrow.
Clinton supporters, I ask you to help me and other decent Democrats knock this tape down, because what it is nothing more than a fake smear of Michelle Obama. I remember when Hillary Clinton was smeared like this, and I hide-rate anyone that brings up the stupid Vince Foster shit. I hope Clinton supporters will do the same to anyone tomorrow.
