Obama’s October Surprise
I am so done with this guy. I can’t even begin to imagine having to suffer through another four years of this smug, snarky, immature amateur in the White House. For those of you who don’t remember, Obama twice before got sealed divorce records of his opponents unsealed – a smear campaign – to get them to drop out of the election. He went on to win both. This time, Obama is targeting a friend of Romney’s with this tactic. I mean, the man is currently the President of the United States. Instead of running on his record, or his vision for this country – this, this is what he sinks to? I am embarrassed of and for him.
Breitbart is reporting Obama met personally with the Boston Globe “reporter”. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/10/24/Boston-Globe-Joins-Obama-Dirty-Truck-Brigade
From the Daily Caller –
Gov. Mitt Romney doesn’t have any damaging divorce-records to unseal just before the election — but one of his friends does, so President Barack Obama’s supporters are pushing a Boston court to unseal those records before election day.
Going after unsealed divorce records is Obama’s “signature move,” conservative columnist Ann Coulter wrote in August.
In 2004, Obama’s allies unsealed divorce records that effectively defeated Blair Hall, a business executive who was the leading candidate in the Democrats’ 2004 primary race for the U.S. Senate.
Obama’s allies — including the Chicago Tribune, the former employer of his campaign strategist, David Axelrod — repeated the trick shortly after by unsealing California divorce-records that forced Republican candidate Jack Ryan to quit.
This time around, the target is Romney, the newspaper is the Boston Globe, and the divorce records belong to Tom Stemberg, who worked with Romney to create Staples, the office supply store.
Stemberg is reportedly fighting against the release of those records.
Romney’s campaign says it does not oppose release of the records.
