My Name Is Barack Obama, and I Approve This Mistress

Bill Clinton.

John Edwards.

And now, apparently, Barack Obama.

There seems to be something about the kind of narcissist that runs for higher office that impedes them from keeping their pants on, and the Greek tragedy may be happening again. We've been hearing the name of one of Barack Obama's alleged mistresses for weeks (and I'm sure many of you have as well), but I didn't want to publish it without a credible source backing it.

The guys at Blackfive have that credible source, and they're putting the name of Barack Obama's alleged mistress out there:

If Wolf is correct, there are at least three news organizations sitting on this information originally developed by Hillary Clinton's opposition researchers during the Democratic primaries. According to Wolf, they plan to wait until after the election to break the scandal, for understandable media business reasons.

What are those reasons?

$, $, and $.

If they break the story of Obama's affair now, they will torpedo Obama's campaign. They do not want to deal with the the consequences of that, but then consequences aren't their driving concerns; ratings are.

If news organizations break the story prior to the election, they'll have a big story for several weeks, but then it will fade.

If they wait, however, and break the story of Obama's alleged affair after he becomes President-Elect (and yes, they're confident they can still help make that happen), them they have Obama the Elected to rape on page one and broadcasts and talk shows for months upon end.

The only thing the media likes more than building someone up is tearing them apart. If there are witnesses to substantiate Barack Obama's affair with Vera Baker, then he may be a crippled President before he's even sworn in.

The possibility that scares me the most out of this is if Obama wins, this story comes out, and then Obama feels compelled to resign, that we end up with Joe Biden as the President.

Frankly, that scares the hell out of me.

And _that_ puts Nancy only one heartbeat away from fulfilling her dream - being the first Speaker to become President.

and then Obama feels compelled to resign,

heh..I am sure Obama's strong sense of personal honor would require him to do just that.

And I think the press has it wrong. Anyone listening to Michelle Obama would probably sympathize with Barack on his need to find sane companionship.

I disagree. The LeftStreamMedia are far more interested in getting their guy in office. Once he's there they can and will use the same argument they did with Clinton... it's all about sex. If The One can get a pass with all his known radical allies, this will be a 'there is no there there' issue.

And with the liberalist trifecta in power the U.S. will drift inexorably and permanently toward Euro socialism. Unless we all realize this race isn't over and send McCain to 1600 Pennsylvania.

I am always nervous about commenting on news that is in its infancy but if this is true it would be quite the October surprise. I find that a man who has an affair on his wife shows a part of his character that can only be described as deplorable. As I read your article above I noticed you mentioned Edwards & Clinton. Not too long ago it was also revealed on Spitzer and his replacement Paterson. One other presidential candidate who has also shown his stripes as an adulterer is John McCain. Though it happened 30 years ago, one must admit that it still took place. It doesn't seem fair & balanced to ignore that fact in your entry.

Posted by: Clemond N. Flinch at October 25, 2008 05:07 AM

Rocksandbroncs is correct insofar as the scandal, broken after the election, will not cost Obama the Presidency. Yes, many will rally to him ala Clinton, and it will become a giant non-issue issue, and once again the Eurotrash and their domestic allies will scoff at American moralism. Meanwhile alot of media types will make big money selling this story to the 'rubes' in the process.

So, win-win for them.

Posted by: ThomasD at October 25, 2008 05:39 AM

Clemond, you do bring up a valid point to a certain extent, but we all know McCain had an affair years ago, divorced, and married Cindy as a result.

I mentioned Edwards and Clinton because they were the most recent examples of those either in the White House or seeking it when exposed having an affair.

Likewise, as I was focusing on POTUS, Spitzer and Patterson never my mind, either.

Posted by: Confederate Yankee at October 25, 2008 06:43 AM

I believe the main difference between McCain's adultery and Obama's is that McCain did not hold public office whereas I believe Obama was Ill State Legislator. This doesn't make either adultery acceptable, just pointing out the difference.

Affairs aside; it appears to me that the bigger story is not that Obama messed around on his wife, it's that it is highly probable that the guy who runs the 'city that stinks like a whore-house in low-tide' is involved in covering-up the affair along side Michelle Obama.

Posted by: syn at October 25, 2008 07:21 AM

This is getting good ... I say the story goes out Monday. To good to keep it hidden.

Posted by: bill-tb at October 25, 2008 07:46 AM

I'd feel more comfortable, at least from a foreign policy standpoint, with Biden then Obama. Not much, mind you, but, I don't think he is quite the surrender monkey that Obama is.

Posted by: William Teach at October 25, 2008 07:55 AM

This story along with the birth certificate he refuses to produce for the court, along with questionable campaign funds from abroad, along with using government computors to discredit Joe the plumber, along with the lies about taxes, McCains health program, McCains plans to stay in Iraq for a hundred years, lies about not talking to Iraq officials about making no agreements with Bush administration etc etc etc should convince some of these swooning Obama supporters to come out of their fog,

Posted by: loco at October 25, 2008 08:41 AM

Obama, as PotUS wouldn't have to resign - there is no precedent. From George Washington (though admittedly no affair was ever proven)to Roosevelt to Kennedy to George #41 to Clinton. I wonder if the position comes with a mistress, like picking out which desk you want.

"I'd feel more comfortable, at least from a foreign policy standpoint, with Biden then Obama. Not much, mind you, but, I don't think he is quite the surrender monkey that Obama is."

Even more important, unlike with His Majesty, Saturday Night Live would have a field day with Biden every week--the material would write itself.

Joe Biden: He's the new Gerald Ford!

It's a lose-lose situation here. Adultery is indeed a character issue and I hate to think that we'd elect another president with a predilection for extramarital entertainment. But it's too late now to throw this little nugget into the mix. And as far as after the election, as much as I'd enjoy seeing the LSM illuminati take down Obama's credibility, if he's elected to office we have to somehow deal with it gracefully. An exposed scandal is going to divide our country further and inflame disrespect of our elected officials.

Posted by: jeanedcrusader at October 25, 2008 10:02 AM

Look, this FraudKing has been outed for terrorist associations, socialist leanings and prior work, possible noncitizenship, racist pastors and mentors, support - on tape! - of infanticide, and an abominable inability to tell the truth about his patriotism! I'm pretty sure the ignorance-disguised-as-tolerance of the media is NOT going to give it any weight, regardless of the evidence.

Also, I heard the rumor some time ago and the real weight of the discovery was her financial doings prior to and then with the campaign. She is involved with some very shady financial dealings and ThatPath was deemed more scary.(Sorry, can't remember where i saw it but someone has researched it)

Posted by: gael at October 25, 2008 10:09 AM

Can't see why this would matter. After all, we know John McCain screwed around on his first wife who waited and waited and waited for him to come home from Vietnam.

So, if this information is true about Obama, that means he's in the company of the adulterous Republican candidate for president.

Move along, kids. Guys with egos have been sticking their appendages in women to whom they aren't married for a looooong time.

Posted by: Constant Reader at October 25, 2008 10:18 AM

CR, perhaps you have enough "moral flexibility" that you don't see anything wrong with someone who has a problem keeping his pants on in the Oval Office or anywhere near it, but any branch of government dealing in classified information certainly does. The obvious reason that people with such moral defects are easy to blackmail, and are therefore considered security risks.

I also find it doubtful that Obama would win the presidency if this was run in the MSM in coming days, especially if "proud for the first time" Michelle Obama is part of the attempt to shuffle Baker to Martinique, and is complicit in the cover-up for her own naked ambitions as others are alleging.

It's called moral character. Some of us still care about it.

And before you go there, yeah, McCain did the same thing (long ago), and he's a scumbag, too. I don't like either man, and just find McCain the lesser of two evils as a policy matter, and the least likely to screw up the country until we can (hopefully) get decent candidates on both sides in 2012.

Posted by: Confederate Yankee at October 25, 2008 10:47 AM

Yes, John McCain did have an affair. 28 years ago give or take a year or two. It resulted in divorce and remarriage to Cindy. The wife he has remained faithful to and has raised 3 biological and 1 adopted child with.
John McCain is not a perfect human being. None of us are. Infidelty is a serious matter as it does speak to character. What I find refreshing about John McCain is this-When Rick Warren asked him what his great moral failure was, without hesitation he said it was the failure of his first marriage. In front of millions of people, he admited his error. He did not blame it on his time in captivity. He did not blame it on Carol. He simply stated that it was he who had failed. It was 20+ years ago and he has paid his dues, led a faithful life, and served this country well. I'm not going to hold it over him at this point.

Funny, Obama can't even admit to hearing racial hatred spewed from his preacher for 20 years. Nor can he admit that he paid a front group for ACORN $800K to canvass for him during the primaries. He can't admit he knew Bill Ayers was an unrepentent terrorist friend. I highly doubt he will be forthcoming about this. I, for one, hope this does come out. Won't Hillary supporters be thrilled to wonder what might have been. Heh.

Posted by: c17wife at October 25, 2008 11:05 AM

If the voters didn't rebel when Bill Clinton was getting his lewinski serviced in the Oval Office, what possible reason do you have to think they will care about this? After all, it isn't "fair" for Michelle to keep him all to herself; he wasn't being unfaithful, he was merely "sharing the wealth". The One's faithful and adoring subjects will regard this as a non-issue, regardless of if or when the story breaks.

Posted by: Clayton, in Mississippi at October 25, 2008 11:19 AM

I do care about moral fiber. But I also care about common sense in choosing a president to lead and represent us. John McCain lost me when he chose Sarah Palin as his VP. It comes down to judgment now, and if I have to choose the lesser of two evils on that front, I have to go with Obama.

The choice of Sarah Palin strikes me as a painful and embarrassing gimmick that demonstrates contempt for the United States and an underestimation of the intelligence of its citizenry and an overestimation of the desperation of our nation's female population to just want to see a woman in the White House. Yankee, I agree with you in praying we have better choices on both sides come 2012.

Posted by: Constant Reader at October 25, 2008 11:47 AM

CR To take that view of Gov Palin is to ackowledge that you know nothign about her. To Every credential for which you might logically attack a Vice Presidential candidate, she outperforms your candidate! She runs a State - with 25,000 employees and 15 billion dollar budget - AT A PROFIT!!! And, she returned the profits to her constituents. (On the other hand, the only leadership example we can find in BO's past is the collossal failure he made of the 150million dollar bdgeted CAC. In additon, the choices he made in granting awards from that fund were abominably incompetent - and his board mates fought him on it, but Ayers won out. So, financial incompetence, poor judgement, ridiculously inapporpriate associations! Please) Gove Palin lives authentically according to her credo of conservatism - and she has led with integrity and full disclosure for her entier carrer. BO has evaded, hidden, threatened and intimidated those who would reveal The Truth About WhoBO Is. His socialist/Marxist fundamental guiding principals are unAmerican and in conflict with what his constituency thinks he stands for! He is ignorant (don't go to the Columbia/Harvard dir => affirmative action in full force!) and dishonest. You should pay attention to what he ahs done - versus his flashy wordsmithing. And - are you not the least bit curious about his reaction to having been caught out - finally - telling the truth on camera to JoeThePlumber? The reaction speaks volumes!!!

Posted by: gael at October 25, 2008 12:15 PM

CR, let me ask you one question: Is there anything at all that would keep you from supporting and voting for Obama?

If the answer is no, and I suspect it is, then I have another question: What are you doing here?

Let's be up front and honest about your motives before we get into any sort of serious discussion.

Posted by: C-C-G at October 25, 2008 12:41 PM

to swer c-c-g, whether this story is true matters. There is no proof here, and the interview above is all unsourced rumor. I would expect anyone would want to know whether what they accuse someone of is true. Events like the girl in Pittsburgh embarrass everyone.

Posted by: tjproudamerican at October 25, 2008 01:59 PM

TJ, I'll ask you the same questions I asked CR.

I suspect that we've got a lot of Obamabots infesting this blog, and I'm sick and tired of wasting time and bandwidth arguing with those who are not going to change their mind.

So, answer my questions, and then we can discuss the possibility of the story being true.

"I do care about moral fiber"

I agree moral fiber is important however, the noble intelligentsia of our culture apparently are quite enamored with the Presdiential candidate who built his entire political career in the city which 'stinks like a whore-house in low-tide.'

That said; as a woman one thing I do appreciate and admire about Gov Palin, she has no use for those outdated feminists laws of weak victimhood in order to live a full and complete life.

I'll take a pioneer woman anytime, she isn't afraid to break her fingernails like so many precious feminists women.

Would like to point out to you that never once has John McCain's first wife said anything derogatory about him. I'm sure she could have ruined his career and made millions and she has never said a word. Why do you suppose that is? could it be that they understand one another and have raised children together and she has no reason to want to hurt and/or destroy him. His children and how his first wife and Cindy respect him says a lot for McCain the man. And honestly, I'm not crazy about him as a politician, he is too liberal for my tastes.

Posted by: harmony at October 25, 2008 05:56 PM

I would imagine that Barry's relationship with Michelle is similar in nature to Bill's relationship with Hillary...strictly a business relationship. Michelle doesn't really care if Barry is having an affair with another woman or another man. Of course, she'll have to pretend that she cares in order to play her proper role, just like Hillary did.

Posted by: Anon at October 25, 2008 06:22 PM

That would indeed make two candidates having affairs. Word is also being held about Biden's little honey. Word has it that at least his honey is well known.

Posted by: cookiegramma at October 25, 2008 07:03 PM

I really think that if Barack Obama wins that we have to get ready to start PRACTICING Jury Nullification and KEEP THE POWDER dry in case some more drastic anti-Socialist action is needed rather than constantly acting like SURRENDER MONKEYS ourselves.

Posted by: Marshal W Earp at October 25, 2008 07:52 PM

Why would an affair matter.

Everybody lies about sex. It's his personal life, not his public life. Character matters -- no, sorry that wasn't supposed to be there.

Actually a sexual affair is a badge of honor in the Democratic Party.

Now, if it had included Larry Sinclair -- THEN, uhh, it would still not matter. I mean everybody lies about homosexual sex. It's his personal life, yatta yatta yatta

Posted by: David Hinz at October 25, 2008 08:13 PM

Not every president has had a mistress. Nixon never had one,
as far as I have read. And Carter may have been tempted, but
I doubt he ever had one. And probably not Reagan, either.
Bottom line is that some people cheat, and some do not.

Posted by: Jeannie at October 25, 2008 09:10 PM

If this is a potential red-hot scandal, why isn't it on Drudge? The story about govt. computers being used to investigate Joe the Plumber was on there as a developing story early yesterday. This one about the mistress would be right up his alley, as it was Drudge who broke the Lewinsky story.
In other developments, it seems as if Berg's lawsuit was thrown out of court due to insufficient standing. The judge's finding seemed like a bunch of double talk to me. this is the same reason the court cited when they threw out the GOP's suit over the voter fraud. The question is, who WOULD have the standing, if not citizens or voters?

Posted by: AVM at October 26, 2008 12:27 AM

Uh, not to rain on a parade here, but if this is true, there is NOTHING that will make Obama resign. NOTHING. If Clinton didn't have the decency to resign after lying in front of the whole country and having an affair WHILE president, no Democrat would.

Posted by: dean at October 26, 2008 07:33 AM

what else is new ? are we surprised ? It really does not matter because its out of our control. from democratic to republican , they are all corrupt. so sit back and watch the show. if this is the best we have to represent us , then we are in deep s--t.

Posted by: art at October 26, 2008 11:11 AM

art: No we try to destroy the best who try to represent us in favor of those whose only desire is power. For example, I believe Sarah Palin comes from a good place, but because she represents things that the people in power don't like (for example, education)...she has to be crushed.

Posted by: Hawkins at October 26, 2008 06:31 PM

A good story, if true. So what is her name?

Posted by: Bleepless at October 26, 2008 08:53 PM

Let's see. McCain and Cindy had an affair which broke up his first marriage. She IS an affair. Obama's supposed affair has been debunked a dozen times since 2004. I love to read the desperate rants of the right as McCain sinks like the five planes he crashed. We don't need another dummy (894 out of a class of 899) in the White House. Go Obama.

Posted by: Mountain Jack at October 26, 2008 10:13 PM

Much like Clinton or Gavin Newsome or Antonio VillaRigosa, Democrats with self-satisfactory savior complexes are forgiven their sins because they're viewed as in it for the greater good while McCain and Newt are demonized as hypocrites since they set a bar of morality they can't ascribe to.

If this breaks, it will have NO effect on an Obama Presidency, it will be viewed as a GOP smear and "none of our business" since it might detract from the greater good

Posted by: Confederate Yankee at October 27, 2008 06:37 AM

Confed yankee, if this rumor is true, why hasn't it been leaked? Election is 8 days away - why doesn't the GOP or its operatives put it out there? True, it will be dismissed by the Obamatrons as the desperate and sleazy Republican Attack Machine going with negative personal attacks in the eleventh hour, but it's the cover up that might sway voters at the last minute and do McCain some good. If this woman has been "hushed up" by Michelle and others Dems, what money did they use? Perhaps campaign contributions? Then the matter suddenly becomes everyone's business.

Posted by: AVM at October 27, 2008 09:55 AM

Seriously think Obama would resign? You would have to pry the presidency from that man's cold dead hands, and even still have a hell of a fight to do so. The only thing he cares about is the power to destroy America and to do so from with-in. The Marxist way.

The story is not the affair, per se. The damning story is naming names as to who is already in the know in the media and is deliberately holding the story.

This is not the same as holding a national security story until after a mission is conducted.

Posted by: LongTabSigO at October 27, 2008 03:32 PM

so why doesn't Fox News or some other right-leaning agency out this story? Why is everyone protecting Obama? As many have already mentioned, if they are waiting until he is elected, it will be too late. Nothing will remove him from office,and certainly not a run-of-the-mill-they-all-do-it sex scandal. So we find out the media sat on it - big deal! Maybe a few editors/reporters get fired over it, and then life goes on. The corrupt and biased msm is no surprise to most Americans, and they don't even bother to hide it anymore, so what's the point in waiting?

Gael is right. When I said the Rev. Godd*mn America tape for the first time, I thought Obama was toast. Obviously, he wasn't. If Wrights, Ayers, ACORN, etc, hasn't done it, a girlfriend won't. Slick Willie taught Americans to be all cool and hip about Presidential mistresses.

I'm more interested in the tape the LA Times is suppressing showing the Obamessiah partying with Mr. and Ms. Ayers - and some Palestinian terrorists.
