The ironically-labeled "Fact Hub" lays out the explosive revelations.
Senator Obama’s comment today is fundamentally at odds with what his teachers, family, classmates and staff have said about his plans to run for president. Senator Obama’s campaign rhetoric is getting in the way of his reality." —Clinton campaign spokesman Phil Singer
Well, what are these damning statements?
‘It was clear to me from the day I met him that he was thinking about politics,’ says Harvard Law School classmate Christine Spurell."
That's right. He was thinking about politics. Shocking.
[In 1992] "He said, 'I think I'd like to teach at some point in time, and maybe run for public office,' recalls Robinson, who assumed Obama meant he'd like to run for city alderman. ‘He said no -- at some point he'd like to run for the U.S. Senate. And then he said, 'Possibly even run for president at some point.'
That's right. One year out of law school, he said he maybe would run for office. Possibly even President. Obviously, he had this all worked out.
But, the Obama conspiracy did not start in 1992. Noooooooo.
In third grade, Sen. Obama wrote an essay titled 'I Want To Be a President'
It must have been a memorable essay. I wonder if any of my teachers have my third grade essays. I think it was entitled "I Hate Sitting Boy-Girl-Boy-Girl in Music Class."
But wait, it gets worse. Thanks to the sleuth reporting by the Clinton campaign, we find out that this third-grade essay was part of an even older plot:
In kindergarten, Sen. Obama wrote an essay titled 'I Want to Become President'
Obama was writing essays in kindergarten? He's smarter than I thought. So smart, that he was plotting his run for President at the age of five. This essay, written during the early years of the Lyndon Johnson administration, is clear proof of his decades-old plot to install himself in the White House.
How did the Obama campaign respond to these serious charges? By trying to deflect and at the same time preempt the next Clinton attack:
Obama spokesman Bill Burton responds: "I'm sure tomorrow they'll attack him for being a flip-flopper because he told his second grade teacher he wanted to be an astronaut."
I don't see what's so funny, Mr. Burton. How can we be sure that Obama won't give up his Presidency in mid-term to pursue a career as an astronaut?
With campaigns like Clinton's, the Colbert show could go on despite the WGA strike.
UPDATE:Given the "Back to the Future" nature of the Clinton campaign, this seems appropriate:
History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce
