If you can’t see through the lies, then let me help you.
The campaign on Monday barred cameras from a large gathering of African-American civic leaders Obama attended. It recently refused to provide names of religious figures with whom Obama met in Chicago and directed some of them to avoid reporters by using a special exit. And on Wednesday, the campaign orchestrated Michelle Obama’s appearance on the friendly set of “The View” and a flattering spread in the pages of Us Weekly.
Hmmm. A private meeting with black leaders and us typical white people shouldn’t be concerned? Imagine if McCain held a private meeting only for whites. Outrage, eh? Why not for Obama? And sneaking them out to avoid reporters? If this doesn’t smell fishy to you then get your nose checked out! And what’s wrong with Michelle? Can’t handle people on the right? Afraid? Aren’t you supposed to be helping your hubby ‘bring people together’? How do you do that by only visiting with lefty folks?
Yet while McCain’s aides have had their share of skirmishes with the press, they still enjoy a reputation for giving reporters traveling with him an unusual amount of access.
I guess he doesn’t have anything to hide.
Strategists for Obama, the country’s first black nominee, have made it clear that they believe they need to take extra steps to control his image and protect against attack. But such efforts at times appear to conflict with the candidate’s stated desire to be unusually transparent and open, and they have already occasionally put him at loggerheads with news organizations pushing for greater access to him now that he is the presumptive nominee.
In spirited discussions with reporters barred from Monday’s meeting with African-American civic leaders, aides said that no cameras were allowed because the participants wanted the meeting to be private, even though it was announced on the daily hotel roster of events. Later, other aides said the lighting was not properly set up for television quality.
Lighting. Riiiiight. Hasn’t the left made a huge ruckus over Bushco and their ‘secret meetings’? But it’s all good and dandy if it’s a Democrat, right? The hypocrisy is so blaring you need to put shades on.
When Obama met with religious leaders last week, his campaign kept out photographers and reporters and refused to share a full list of participants.
What’s he hiding? What kinds of promises is he making them? What kind of dirty deals are going down? Don’t know, do ya? So much for a new style of politics and shedding those evil ways from those old Washington types. You’re being hoodwinked. Can you not see it?
Professor Douglas Kmiec, a conservative constitutional scholar at Pepperdine Law School, said Obama told him and others in attendance that he was keeping the meeting private so everyone could speak without fear of public judgment.
Or too afraid of another YouTube moment? No need for whitey to catch on to your private plans. Just smile and they’ll follow you to the voting booths! What dolts!!!
McCain has is faults, but they can’t be as bad as Obama’s!
