This Can’t be Good...
Posted by: Dale Franks on Sunday, June 01, 2008

Larry Johnson seems to have the nuclear Michelle Obama video that was rumored to be floating around a few weeks ago.

He says he's going to post it tomorrow before 9:00am. All he'll say about the actual content is:
Now I know why people who have seen the videotape say it is stunning. Barack’s headaches are only starting.
I don't know about you, but I'm on pins and needles.

The timing is interesting.

This stuff will be ramping up just as the Democrat convention is.
One could easily think the tape to have been Supplied by Clinton’s camp, since that’s the person it would most directly benefit. I make no accusation, here, but the timing does mesh rather well to the point.

Seeing is believing.

It’s nice to have the Republicans on the sidelines of this ugliness.

That’s just downright mean!

Seriously, I’m hard-pressed to think of any racist or vehemently anti-American comments she — or any longtime member of TUCC — might make that would actually surprise me.

The whole thing is like watching nuclear war between the Saudis and Iran. You are never sure who to root for and but applaud every direct hit on either side. :)

Nothing better than a war amongst the Left for ideological purity.

I will be logging allt his stuff down to use when the next comment from MK, Erb, Willis, Glasnost, et al try to say that the right are the only vicious ones in the political battle.

Larry Johnson said a while back that this will be because of GOP opposition research. Leave it to an ex-spook to try and blame someone else.

Unless for the sake of unity, they make Obama the VP saying he needs time to mature as a politician. Then Obama ’16

This is from Larry Johnson. He of the Karl Rove indictment fame. Skepticism might be called for.

Whenever Larry Johnson posts anything, I get skeptical. Whenever any blogger promises a big scoop is coming Real Soon Now, I get skeptical. When both happen at once, well...

Oh I agree ... it’s "skeptical city" here. But should it be even remotely true, it could be a very interesting Monday.

Frankly, I have no idea if this tape is real, but the point I see missed revolves around the ’that “a network” does in fact have the tape’.

If this is true and “a network” can be proven to be sitting on it for any reason other than verifying the authenticity of the tape, it will be dynamite. There are already enough stories of the media sucking the tailpipe for Obama .. one more at this level and “a network” will be outsourcing their news.

Reread Crazy Larry .. he looks like he is trying to convince himself that the tape exists.

Sorry Larry .. I just don’t believe.

Show me the money.

Here’s my theory, if this tape exists (And that’s a big "if", I’ll admit)...

This tape is an Obama-killer. If it was a product of the McCain camp, it most certainly would be held back until just before the national election: There’s no way Obama would win with his wife railing against whitey.

This means McCain would WANT Obama to get the Dem nod. Running it now would remove Obama, meaning he’d have to actually run against the Dem canidate (He could have sat on his hands till mid October if he ran against Obama and had this tape)...

So it is highly unlikely it would be from the McCain camp. Odds are it would be either something dug up independantly (and frankly, you could have sold it to Hillary for millions - or at least some tips on trading cattle futures), or it is from the Hillary camp.

I don’t know Larry’s politics, but I suspect he backs Hillary.

Releasing the tape now makes perfect sense when you think about what Hillary needs right now: Deligates of any sort.

The splitting of MI and FL deligates didn’t go as well for her as she might have hoped, so she is in such dire straights, she’s pulling out the big guns...

She would have RATHER merely defeated Sen Obama... Him retaining his Senate seat is a win for the party, and by his merely losing puts him in prime position in ’16. However, that’s not possible now, so she needs to crush him completely. This tape will largely ruin Obama outside of Chicago. He’ll be able to get elected to the state House or Senate, since the elections are more local, and maybe he could win a seat in the US House of Reps, but the Senate and National politics would be over for him. This is less good, but she’d stil win, so I really think it would be a viable option for her.

So the timing makes sense, and frankly, I would t this point be more surprised if the tape didn’t exist... It just fits to nicely with how the Clintons work...

There is no tape.

If you read LJ stuff, it’s clear that he is trying his best to believe his own rumours .. and still doesn’t believe it himself.

Nobody has gone on record as having seen it (except perhaps LJ).
Nobody knows if Karl Rove, Lee Atwater or Donald Segretti have a copy of the tape, that’s only LJ spinning.

Have a good laugh .. but don’t expect any tape .. ever

Sorry Larry .. I just don’t believe.
Don’t forget, it’s all about the Hope in the Obama camp.

Actually, it makes little sense that the Clinton side would wait this long to try to sink Obama.

The Rumor of the tape works for Hillary. The tape itself would work better.

Since it stopped at a Rumor, I’ll err on side with those who say it doesn’t exist until it is actually available. Or another alternative, is that it exists but isn’t that bad or undefensible.

Well, something is happening at Johnson’s blog. I accessed it early this a.m., between 6:30 & 7:30 a.m. and was reading around there (stupid blog), but after the announced 9:00 a.m. moment of truth, I haven’t been able to access it.

So, maybe he either got hit or there’s so much traffic that his server can’t handle it.

Well I have been able to access it and there’s zip for a video. To this point he’s posted no video proof that Michelle Obama said anything racist or bigoted. I’ll keep monitoring until "9am" in all timezones has passed, but I’m not expecting much.

Larry’s about out of time on this. He does have a post this morning where he claims to talk to five separate sources that have seen it. oookay ... that’s pretty thin. Maybe this tape is out there, maybe. I am very unconvinced but there’s just enough detail for me to have a little doubt and maybe that’s the whole plan. No tape, just sow a few seeds of doubt. That would be a pretty lame strategy.

Maybe Larry’s on the West Coast, it’s only 8 AM there right now but the clock is ticking ...

Latest rumor now says that Neal Cavuto has the tape and will be airing it on his show tomorrow (again, let me stress, this is a rumor).
Written By: McQ
I officially call bullsh*t

Rumor has this, rumor has that but if the rumor is that FOX News has what is potentially the biggest bombshell of the election and they’re going to actually sit on it over 24 hours (allowing the potential to be scooped by other outlets) then that rumor is, frankly, bullsh*t.

I’d love for this tape to exist and surface but the "facts" of the way this is rolling out just doesn’t hang together.

"I have not seen it but I have heard from five separate sources who have spoken directly with people who have seen the tape."

This is a joke, right? I don’t think I need to read any farther.
