Anti-American comments of Obama benefactor could derail campaign
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:07 PM by usregimechange
At a south Chicago grocery store, a store clerk with ties to the Obama family has been implicated in activities that have the potential to derail the Obama campaign. In an interview from a 1995 Chicago Tribune story the clerk admitted to taking part in local acts of vandalism for what she called "American economic genocide" against inner city Americans.

The Obama family have been financially tied to this clerk and her establishment for years. Mrs. Obama has purchased fruits and vegetables from this store and Obama's cousin once even had a late hour conversation with the manager that hired the clerk about the Illinois lottery.

I support Obama but he needs to denounce the statements made by his home town grocery clerk and discontinue all ties with her, including any grocery shopping or conversations with the clerk's extended social network. He also needs to answer why his cousin continued his financial support of this clerk's store even after he knew she was a potential criminal! We can't talk about issues of lesser importance such as health care until we fully understand what Obama knew, and when he knew it.

1. I heard his mailman once gambled on a football game.
Is there no end to the scandals?

4. Obama better immediately denounce everyone he knows -- just to be sure.
He can un-denounce them once they've been checked out.

7. So now we need to investigate every grocery store
where Clinton or McCain ever shopped and everything every employee there ever said???

I can't believe how absurd this guilt by association witch hunt has become. This is lowest level of American politics I've ever seen in my lifetime! While the American debt economy crashes and burns the media wastes their time on THIS CRAP??? Turn off your TV and send all the media scum to the unemployment lines! Journalists have become worse parasites than Wall Street bankers! Sending 'em all to Guantanamo would be a nicer fate than they deserve!
