Fighting the Smears : The Truth About Michelle Obama

The Obama Campaign Uncovers the Lie Told on Michelle Obama

It goes without saying that anyone running for president of the United States is subject to intense scrutiny in every area of life. However, no one should be subject to unecessary smear campaigns that have no respect for truth or decency. Senator Barack Obama and his wife Michelle hae had more than their share of these ugly tactics and have taken off the gloves to fight vicious rumors, which are meant to denigrate their character and influence the public. Senator Obama has launched a new web site, fightthesmears.com, which is designed to debunk the rumors spread during his campaign. The following was taken from the web site:

Lie:

On May 30th, Rush Limbaugh said he had heard a rumor that a tape exists of Michelle Obama using the word “Whitey” from the pulpit of Trinity United Church of Christ.
Truth:

No such tape exists. Michelle Obama has not spoken from the pulpit at Trinity and has not used that word.
Lie:

Blogger Larry Johnson wrote on May 31st that he would add “New and dramatic developments. This is a heads up. I’ll post the news Monday morning by 0900 hours. Now I know why people who have seen the videotape say it is stunning. Barack’s headaches are only starting.”

Truth:

Johnson posted no such update.
Lie:

Proven GOP sleazemeister Roger Stone said on Fox News on June 1st that “there’s a buzz, which I believe now to be credible, that some indelible record exists” of a tape of Michelle Obama using the term “whitey.”

    Rudolph Armbruster — What do you think? The woman went to Princeton and then law school…she is an open-minded & intelligent woman. I HIGHLY DOUBT she wrote a racist thesis in college.
