Obama Pledges Allegiance
Twice this week, I was asked if Barack Obama held his hand over his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance. Let's squash that rumor, pronto.
If you are the visual Frogger, take a look-see as the man himself addresses the Internet rumor assault that follows the Obama campaign wherever the next caucus or primary leads.
These types of low-blow tactics--so outstandingly fabricated--are the weapons of campaigns of the past; however, Americans have quite the love affair with passing malicious gossip, which quite effectively, fuels the dirty tricks of whatever slick political machine chooses to kneecap the character of an opponent.
Should a "You've Got Mail" stab-in -the-back pop up on your email today or any other day, ask yourself what's fueling this bottom dweller approach. What's bringing on the keyboard brass knuckles?
Here's one possibility.
Barack Obama stands in the path of the White House for those who had already scheduled the moving van.
Don't hand them the keys to the front door.
Pssst. Debunk the rumors. Pass this post on to five people and ask them to pass this post to five more.
And so on and so on and so on..........
