UPDATED: Reports out of Washington, DC: PRESIDENT OBAMA in a shocking cheating scandal after being caught in a Washington, DC Hotel with a former campaign aide.
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.
John Edwards called The National Enquirer report about his affair “tabloid trash.” Years later he finally admitted to the affair and love child the Enquirer had alleged.
The [Edwards] story took off (and I many others started blogging it) in July . That’s when Enquirer reporters caught Edwards in a late night rendezvous with the alleged mistress and baby momma at the Beverly Hilton. When confronted by reporters, Edwards hid in a men’s room for 15 minutes. The next day a hotel security guard confirmed it was Edwards he had escorted from the building because he wasn’t a registered guest. At that point the story deserved to hit the big time. You had an obviously suspicious encounter and equally suspicious behavior by Edwards when confronted. The reporters were witnesses. The security guard was a witness.
And that’s just the signal. Then you had the signal analysis – asking how the reporters got to be there in the first place. What really sold the story was the quality of the Enquirer’s sources. Those reporters didn’t stake out every hotel in California every night of the week until they got lucky. The Enquirer had an inside source who told them exactly where Edwards would be on what night. When the paper said they had reliable sources on the Edwards affair you could believe it.
Palin supporters like me should start worrying if the Enquirer starts showing the same quality of information on its Palin affair story. Until then, it’s just another rumor of many being thrown at Palin.
Until the Obama affair story hits the same standard as the Edwards story eventually did I’ll keep my mind and ears open, but won’t draw any conclusions.
