National Enquirer: Obama Cheating Scandal
PRESIDENT OBAMA has been caught in a shocking cheating scandal after being caught in a Washington, DC hotel with a former campaign aide, sources say.
And now, a hush-hush security video that shows everything could topple both Obama’s presidency and marriage to Michelle!
A confidential investigation has learned that Obama first became close to gorgeous 35 year-old VERA BAKER in 2004 when she worked tirelessly to get him elected to the US Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions.
While Baker has insisted in the past that “nothing happened” between them, the ENQUIRER has learned that top anti-Obama operatives are offering more than $1 million to witnesses to reveal what they know about the alleged hush-hush affair.
I first saw something about this story last night, but I didn’t trust the Web site as credible enough to bring a link here as Assigned Reading. Now, that being said, when it comes to credibility the National Enquirer isn’t exactly The New York Tim– oh, wait.
It should absolutely be remembered that it was the Enquirer which had the story on John Edwards, Rielle Hunter and their love child pegged from the beginning, and it should be noted that not a single mainstream newspaper picked up on the story until almost a full year after the Enquirer broke the news.
To be honest, in this case, I really hope it isn’t true. Besides being the president of the United States, Barack Obama is a husband and a father. For the sake of Sasha and Malia, who are a whole lot younger than Chelsea Clinton was when her father played “Who’s the Humidor?” with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office, I hope that this is a lot of hot air and unsubstantiated rumor.
(That’s actually part of the reason that I’d like to get into Family Law. I’ve seen it from all sides. I grew up a child of a not-so-fun divorce, and I’ve grown up to have an absolutely, unequivocally wonderful marriage. And it is the effect that family issues such as these have on children that makes me want to work my tail off to ensure that, if a split does occur, the end result is the best for everyone.)
Of course, as much as I would like to see this allegation of infidelity prove untrue, what I would really like to see is whatever story there is pursued as relentlessly by the mainstream media as they would if the possible cheater were Sarah Palin. After all, when you compare the media coverage of Mark Sanford’s failure to distinguish the Appalachian Trail from Argentinian tail with the perpetual cycle of ridicule-denial-admittance that was the John Edwards scandal, the press certainly has some ground to make up if they’re even moderately concerned about maintaining even a shred of objectivity.
