You can't really be that pissed off. Look at this as mentioned before. Obama has to deal with all these factions of business and government. I know have to see the type of team he puts together and what the Democrats do if and when they take the White House.

I might come around like GS pointed out but right now I will milk this subject for what it's worth before I head back to camp and start chanting We Want Change. This is at the heart of our politics but many people choose to keep it hush hush because it's taboo, besides who in their right minds would want to be labeled an anti-Semite? Don't worry I will know when to tone it down before the JDL plants a bomb in my car or something

We are all hoping audaciously that these rumors will go away.

Love,

Barak (H) Obama

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama

Obama denies a rumor and questions the question

Sen. Barack Obama on Thursday batted down rumors circulating on the Internet and mentioned on some cable news shows of the existence of a video of his wife using a derogatory term for white people, and criticized a reporter for asking him about the rumor, which has not a shred of evidence to support it.

“We have seen this before. There is dirt and lies that are circulated in e-mails and they pump them out long enough until finally you, a mainstream reporter, asks me about it,” Obama said to the McClatchy reporter during a press conference aboard his campaign plane. “That gives legs to the story. If somebody has evidence that myself or Michelle or anybody has said something inappropriate, let them do it.”

Asked whether he knew it not to be true, Obama said he had answered the question.

“Frankly, my hope is people don’t play this game,” Obama said. “It is a destructive aspect of our politics. Simply because something appears in an e-mail, that should lend it no more credence than if you heard it on the corner. Presumably the job of the press is to not to go around and spread scurrilous rumors like this until there is actually anything, an iota, of substance or evidence that would substantiate it.”

So was it even acceptable to ask the question?

Before Obama could answer, communications director Robert Gibbs interjected: “You just did.”

“That is my point,” Obama said. “I just think people have to think about it before they ask.”

NOTE: Obama's clearly right that this is how stories for which there's no evidence at all make it into the public eye. So I'm not linking or detailing the rumor, since there's just zero credible evidence for it. This is probably a silly old media vestige, of course; Google has no such standards. And Obama's discussion of it is, more broadly, news: As he acknowledged yesterday, beating back whisper campaigns is perhaps the central challenge his campaign faces.

ALSO: Reason's David Weigel examines the original source of the rumor and finds that he can't keep his story straight. (And yes, I'm now linking something that links the original. It's such an effective challenge to it that it seemed worth the cost.)
