New Anti Obama Rumor. He is Having An Affair & There Is A Video To Prove It
Edited on Sat May-01-10 09:07 AM by romantico
Back when the National Enquirer was reporting stories on how George W.Bush was back to drinking, and having an affair with Condi,and that Laura was divorcing Bush and so on,the Republicans laughed at them as being a tabloid trash magazine. However,since the Edwards scandal they now seem to think ANYTHING they print is the gospel. If they had the proof,they would have released it by now,no? Why wait?

http://www.nationalenquirer.com/obama_cheating_scandal_...

What's sad is, it does not have to be true. As long as the lie is out there and it is repeated enough times,people will believe it.

5. WHat
What has the Enquirer been right about since the Edwards Scandal? Just asking. I recall the Enquirer saying years ago Bill Clinton was having an affair with Demi Moore. Bill was still in office but the Enquirer ran with the story for weeks.

7. That was my point.
Everyone seems to think that when the Enquirer reports something suddenly it's a harbinger of doom because they happened to scoop the Edwards scandal.

9. Google the Vera Baker/Obama link and the "story" goes back to 2004
I would suggest that the first Republicans who bring this up are themselves involved in cheating, as was Newt Gingrich in 1996.

Darryl Issa (with the GOP) is on a mission to find dirt on Obama and I'm sure there are some links.

Pathetic...

11. Yeah, it's kinda funny though
Remember when that attention seeking douchebag Larry Sinclair came up with some story about how he and Obama were having a gay-sex-and-cocaine-fueled affair? And how even though he couldn't back up any of his claims, and failed any and every polygraph test he was put to, the Republicans thought he was totally legit?

Well now apparently they can't make up their minds because according to Larry Sinclair, Obama's gay. But they want to believe this new 'story' about him cheating with a woman. So apparently they can't even settle on his sexuality. :rofl:

will be completely faithful. The fact is that Edwards, who is despicable, but not stupid, shows that there will be some who think they will get away with it.

41. Leave Michelle for WHAT???
You are right. Obama knows he has pure gold in Michelle and he is a lucky man to have her and their beautiful daughters. I just don't see him the same way as I see John Edwards...I was fooled by Edwards, yes, but in the back of my mind I had some doubts about his vanity, but I don't with Obama. Unless he goes completely off the beam (which I don't see him doing) I don't think such a situation is going to happen. It's obvious the man is absolutely crazy in love with his wife...

51. I don't know if
"there will never be another Democratic President stupid enough to cheat", but I'm sure the memory of the Clinton years will be hanging over their heads as a reminder.

I really didn't care about Bill's sex life, but I was angry at him for being so STUPID and careless. I personally don't condone his behavior, but my primary concern was how he was doing his job as President and the scandal detracted from more important issues. I can't imagine aspiring to become president and then compromising the position.

I also can't imagine Obama taking such a risk, even if he was tempted. Plus I'm quite sure Michelle would kick his ass if he did.

66. Really?
I doubt President Obama is doing anything on the side. But I have absolutely no doubt that, given the continued existence of our country and the election of future Democratic Presidents, a good many of them will cheat on their wives. And eventually on their husbands(take it either way you wish, I suspect both will be true if given enough time).

22. yes, and they have been looking for that "video" since 2004 and probably
desperately searching for an actor who looks like him. Not different from the "birth" certificates and all the fakes. What is an utter shame, though, is that this crap is getting posted, and posted, and posted again and again here, of all places. My plea to moderators -- please make it impossible!!!! Just fucking ban it.

You ignore my question. What other anti Obama /democrat posts have I posted? You make this claim then ignore it when asked to back it up. I've been here since December 2000. So, if you are suggesting I am a troll I'd like you to prove it or shut up.I posted this,like other hreads which are similar. Maybe you are defensive because you think it's true.

"I mean, isn;t that why DUers post so many threads about what the Tea Baggers and FOx NEws say about Obama?"

Man those are tired arguments...post any old rumor because "we want to know what the other side is saying"

And then say if we don't want to read it that we are like Fox News.

Edited on Sat May-01-10 04:14 PM by romantico
Then DU needs to enforce some new rules.A few threads titled about how the RW are saying the oil spill is Obama's Katrina.Aren't they doing the same thing? We know it's total BS yet they post it anyway.Double standards.WHy so many threads devoted to what Glen Beck said today or what Rush Limbaugh said about the Democrats or Obama? So,I could care less if I lost you. These "secret Rules" that apply to some DUers and then not to others are really annoying.So,if it is not allowed to post crap about Democrats or Obama that we know is not true,why so many threads devoted to Fox,Beck,and so on? I simply posted this thinking it would be posted anyway. For anyone to think I agree with the story is just stupid.

37. Life as a politician/celebrity isn't all it's cracked up to be.
No privacy, and shameless publications and "news" organizations will stop at nothing to sell a copy or get ratings. Tearing a life to shreds based on unsubstantiated rumors aka gossip.....no problem from these shysters.

If you buy or read this stuff you are perpetuating its growth....no matter what your rationale is.

At this point, Obama could have his family dance the Tarantella naked on the Truman Balcony and MSM would kindly look the other way. As for the people, at least a few million would probably order this alleged sex tape online ASAP.

Bill Clinton screwed up a couple of things royally, but his affair was irrelevant except as a way for the GOP to try to bring him down with junior high school gossip.

44. Even if it were true, this story isn't going anywhere
Edited on Sat May-01-10 05:30 PM by liberalpragmatist
Look: post-John Edwards, people are understandably jittery about the Enquirer. But they get plenty of stuff wrong.

I really doubt this is true. HOWEVER, if it is true, I really don't see where there's any potential for this becoming an issue. With Edwards', the Enquirer caught him having an active affair, paying off his mistress with hush money probably diverted from campaign funds, fathering a child with his mistress, and making his personal aide the fall guy. With Bill Clinton, he was being sued for sexual harassment, and records of Lewinsky's affair were subpoenaed.

Even if it were true, on what basis would this story have any legs? The woman denies it. Obama certainly denies. It supposedly happened six years ago, and the woman in question (questioned by The Daily Mail last fall - yes, this story already made the European tabloids) not only denied everything but is now living with her boyfriend in the Caribbean. There is NOTHING here that would warrant any kind of further investigation because none of the relevant parties are pursuing a charge.

47. National Enquirer Obama Story Update: Retracts Hotel Surveillance Claim
The National Enquirer, which published a report this morning that investigators are attempting to obtain a tape that proved an illicit rendezvous between President Barack Obama and former US Senate campaign staffer Vera Baker, has updated their story this afternoon to retract the claim that there is video evidence of the affair with the alleged testimony of an anonymous chauffeur.

Looks like the National Enquirer Obama sex scandal is unraveling rather quickly. The latest from the paper is that An Enquirer reporter has confirmed the limo drivers account of the secret 2004 rendezvous. The limo driver allegedly in the know about the affair is not a new piece of their puzzle that claim was there last night but in the absence of the video evidence of ambiguous age, which was the center of their report and would have been the one thing to lend them any credibility, the limo driver is the core of the story.

An affair really doesn't seem in character for Obama, anyway. With someone like Clinton there were rumors beforehand, with Flowers etc, but the only Obama stuff you find is whackjob conspiracy shit.

Anyway, the National Enquirer may go back to the trash. :D

64. The inside information from Hyde Park is VERY trustworthy
Inside information from Hyde Park acquaintances of the Obamas (former neighbors of theirs in the Hyde Park Condo association they lived in as well as many others in the neighborhood who know the Obamas very well) says there is NO WAY IN HELL Barack Obama has EVER cheated on Michelle.

None.

Zip.

Nada.

It's all Republican spaghetti thrown at the wall to try and get something, ANYTHING to stick because nothing has to date.

has these head lines "Twins Health Shocker" saying the JoliePitts twins may have Down Syndrome. No Obama Story inside.

The GLOBE has headline "Obama Caught in Hotel With This Beauty." Story/lies inside.

On the website it has the Obama story and I just checked it .

60. It seems like a non-story
Someone working for his campaign went to a hotel where he may have been staying. And we know this because rich "anti-Obama" types told the enquirer that. How much was the "limo driver" paid since there's so much money going around?

Also, how do we know this wasn't normal campaign business?
How do we know he was there at the time?
How would the limo driver know who she is and that she's visiting Obama?

This is a BS distraction from people with enough money to buy other people.

68. WHo
Who believed it? I don't recall one DUer saying OH MY GOD,MUST BE TRUE? Relaying a story,even a wild crazy one,does not mean you believe it.People here were posting threads about how they read the RW was saying the oil spill was Obama's Katrina. No one ever accused the person posting the story as believing it. Are you saying the country is doomed because of liberals? Sure sounds like it.

74. It's doomed because of all the so-called and self-professed liberals
who believe and repeat everything Fox "News" and hate radio say. Why DO you post wild, crazy stories here if you don't believe them? There were more than 20 threads about this absurdity, most of them from the same people who post every bizarre raving of Rusty, Joe Intern Killer, Billo the clown, Savage Weiner, and the rest of them.

76. Agree to Disagree
I read on a day to day basis the crap Beck and Hanity say about Obama here at DU.Even Huffington Post posts their crap. Sure,we know it's BS but to accuse those of posting them as actually believing it really speaks volumes and shows how out of touch you really are. Anyone claiming I am not a liberal,am a troll, or some how hate Obama will get an earful from me. I simply won;t any lies be said without challenging then person,and plenty here have LIED and rather than proving or backing up their lies they run away.If you have a problem with threads like this. DON'T REPLY! Talk to the moderators and make it a new rule that only certain types of threads are allowed. I simply thought people should know what the RW idiots are saying.This thread is gonna remain bumped and stay alive for a long time at this rate.

People post threads about what Beck said today on his show. People post threads about what Fox News is saying about Obama. People post threads about what Rush said about Democrats and so on. We have dozens of them all over the forum. So,why not go to those threads and bitch? I'm breaking no rules by posting this story. I think people should know what the idiots are saying.Apparently,some disagree. So, we will have to agree to disagree.

71. Even if they have surveillance video
It would only prove he met with a aide who raised millions for his campaign. I'm pretty sure anyone who raised millions for a politician can get a one on one meeting if they want

72. Anything legitimate which goes back to 2004 would have come out in 2008. Count on it.
Someone would have verified that information and released it.

The Barack Obama - Vera Baker affair - truth or rumor? Setting the record straight
May 3, 1:53


"Did President Barack Obama REALLY have an affair with Vera Baker? Who is she and what are the facts?

Stories of an affair between Vera Baker and Barack Obama have been running rampant all over the internet for the past few days.

The rumor, not a new one, has been resurrected, and the Vera Baker Barack Obama cheating scandal has taken on a life of its own.

Is there any truth to this rumor?


--snip--


"Bottom Line

Is there any truth to the rumor about Barack Obama and Vera Baker having an affair?

I think its significant that NONE of the major news outlets (The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, CNN, Fox News, ABC, NBC, etc) have chosen to even dignify this rumor by reporting on it.

I think its also significant that when ABC and NBC checked out this rumor in 2008, they chose not to pursue it any further, and let the matter drop.

The facts that have been uncovered thus far are definitely NOT proof that Vera Baker was Obamas mistress, or that an affair between Barack Obama and Vera Baker ever occurred.

If Vera Baker was a key person on Obamas campaign team, there were probably legitimate reasons why she was taken to his hotel.

Until more substantial proof is actually presented for the public to see, I think we can safely assume that the rumor of a Vera Baker Barack Obama affair is just that a rumor and nothing more."

________________________________________________

While I realize the temptation to this is strong for many politicians and WE ALL have at least one vice, something besides this article gives me reason to think that "cheating" is not one of his vices.

Besides, after Michelle, his mother-in-law, Oprah, Gayle, and Hillary, the line would be out the door for the many other women standing there waiting to beat his ass--especially after what we went through with Clinton.

Also, with the way he looks at Michelle, the man is utterly head-over-heels in love with his wife.



"At Last may have been just what President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama were thinking Tuesday night as they glided through their first inaugural dance to the Etta James classic."

78. We're still waiting for the Michelle Obama "whitey" tape from 2008.
I'm not holding my breath for this video either.
