    Wow what a scoop. Not only that, the author has reported in the past that:

    Obama was born on foreign soil and is a practicing Muslim.
    That Bill Clinton raped Hillary.
    That Hillary Clinton is gay.
    That Obama left Netanyahu in the lurch to go dine with his family (even though his family was 5,000 miles away at the time).

    I love your sources KD. How did Klein get that info out of "one of Obama's closest friends"? LOL.

    Let us know when they find aliens in Area 51, or have photos of JFK and Elvis. That might be more believable.

    Klein is a known liar and hack. Next time try vetting your sources.

    Sure. That'd be a marked improvement from the level of scrutiny you apply to your sources in here, which, near as I can tell, is right in the vicinity of none.

    Obama's been extremely well vetted. After four years and millions of dollars, the bigots haven't convinced anybody other than themselves of anything. The loonies on the right are becoming an increasingly pathetic group of losers. I don't think there's one national leader, even on the right, who takes them seriously anymore. The conspiracy nuts have become completely marginalized and are sort of up there with those who believe that 2012 will be the end of the world.

    I always like to look at the other "news" from these links. I liked this one the best "Obama offers mothers day tweet in exchange for campaign funds". Surprised you didn't go with that one. Then again, "Beachboy gets profane in criticism of Obama" was pretty good. Better then the funny pages, thanks for the chuckle.

    The epitome of hearsay..

    The facts: Rev. Wright claims that an email was sent to a member of his church, offering him $150,000 to “not preach at all until the November election.”

    Wright does not say the email was sent by Obama or the “Obama team,” he says it came from “one of Barack’s closest friends” to a member of his church.
    There’s no evidence at all that this offer came from the Obama campaign.

    Did he preach???

    Why did the "member" send that e-mail, what was he afraid of?

    I am sure the Obama team being from Chitown know how to make a bribe offer with plausable deniability.

    You are correct, did he take the money? If so it would be the same as the John Edwards situation IF campaign funds were used. If he didn't take the money nothing could ever be proved and there is no story.


    IIRC he was retired that year.

    Do not know because a guy said that he received the email from a guy, then he told Rev. Wright, who told the guy yesterday.. gonna have to ask the "guy".... but anyways with all of these "guys" involved has to be the truth.

    Maybe the email was sent from the McCain Campaign???

    Trying to equate a group of people with intellectually/physically disadvantaged folks is extremely poor form.. have to come to expect this from certain segments of our population... anything to make their nontroversy of the day.

    About as credible as the postman story, remember the postman who thought that he remembered a black kid in Ayers parents neighborhood, ergo that kid had to be a young Barack Obama and was staying with the Ayers, even though he could not remember Obama's name...

    Well apparently the suthor has Wright on audio making the claim that a bribe was offered, so much for the thinkprogress smear, and questioning the source. Reverend J Wright is the source.

    BTW what makes a Soros hack blog credible since you want to question sources?
