A letter to the editor from an anonymous writer?? No sources no references?

OK if that works for you...

One reporter's buried opinion from a heavily biased source does not confirmation make.

There are many threads in the hoax forum that have been based on news articles... most notably UFO sightings the press have reported as real, only to turn out to be a hoax. Just because a reporter writes something, does not mean it's true.


If your thread focused more on the dubious collusion seen in the Obama visit, and didn't make the unsupported claiming of campaigning, there'd be no need to move it.

Why must known hoaxes be brought up again???


Probably because that is all birthers have. They cannot argue with facts, so they have to run with hoaxes!

Dick Morris campaigned for Odinga in 2007.(this is new to me) Perhaps at the request of Senator Obama. Still diving on that one


Political consultant Dick Morris, who rose to prominence as a key adviser for President Bill Clinton and then fell from grace after a scandal involving a prostitute, has surfaced as a political consultant in an unlikely place — Kenya. Leading presidential candidate Raila Odinga has brought Morris on as a consultant to help him beat incumbent President Mwai Kibaki in next month’s elections. Last week Morris arrived in Kenya on a tourist visa and held a press conference saying he believed Odinga was poised to win the election. "I think the reason is he has a clear reputation for courage and for integrity and for change," Morris said. "I am delighted to be here in Kenya and to help you get rid of the corrupt government.



But ODM is running on a platform of ridding the current government of its own inefficiencies and corrupt policies. The nonprofit group Transparency International rated Kenya as one of the 20 most corrupt countries in the world, with bribery of police and government offices an endemic problem. The saga of Dick Morris and whether he will be in Kenya helping the opposition party has added more fuel to an increasingly nasty election. Dr. Mutua, who is the spokesman for President Kibaki’s government, also commented on Morris’ background. "From a political perspective, we are not surprised that they (ODM) picked Dick Morris because they are very dirty people," said Dr. Mutua. "Birds of a feather flock together." Do you have a tip for Brian Ross and the Investigative Team

Obama campaigned for Kenyan Dictator in 2006

By what is shown in that video, it sure looks like it.
- Obama went to Kenya.
- Obama was campaigning while there .. not for himself obviously.
- The crowds were listening to Obama speeches about how impressive Odingas work had been.
- Odinga was sitting/standing there the whole time basking in the attention.
- I'm pretty sure I saw people in the crowd holding up pictures of Obama and Odinga
(together in the pictures).

The title is - Obama campaigned for Kenyan Dictator in 2006.
Considering the above information .. I"m not seeing any 'hoax' with the OPs statement.

Obama may or may not have gone there specifically to do that ... we'll never know.
But he DID campaign for him while there. It's pretty undeniable.

The big debate is whether or not this trip was an "official campaign" stump for Odinga. The law of our land would certainly be against such a trip for a sitting Senator. Obama knew that. He was also fully aware of the conditions in Kenya prior to his trip. The political air was thick with tension and this trip was well planned accordingly.

Based on what I've read about Kenya and the tribal culture, Obama was considered royalty as seen in the video. He knew that and would have known that a few photo ops and public appearances with Odinga would be construed by Odinga'a radical ODM supporters as a big nod for Odinga in the race for president. Odinga capitalized on Obama's visit and milked it for all it was worth. All noticed by the political opposition in Kenya to the point where they thought Obama was interfering in Kenyan politics.

Obama did his thing met with some leaders stumped on his AIDS/HIV plan blah blah... In steps Dick Morris out of the blue. A man who whores out his political strategy skills to anyone. He'd previously done campaign work in the UK and in Ukraine, Argentina, Mexico....

Greenberg, Quinlan Rosner is another US Democratic strategic firm that allegedly did work for Odinga as well

GQR also worked for the Our Ukraine Party the party affiliation of the sitting President Victor Yushchenko. The same party and candidate that Dick Morris successfully consulted for.

GQR also consults for a variety of progressive issue organizations such as AFL-CIO, ACLU, Campaign for America’s Future, Center for American Progress, Change to Win, Democracy Corps, Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), Economic Policy Institute (EPI), Joyce Foundation, Mother Jones Magazine, MoveOn.org, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, United Auto Workers (UAW), and USAction.

It really is just a game of connect the dots. Obama is good at hiding his tracks and using others as intermediaries.

Hoax! I don't think so. Every move made by Obama is calculated as our his moves months and years down the road.

Oddly enough Odinga is up for reelection in 2012 also. Wonder what his campaign slogan will be? Last time it was "Fairly we share, together we prosper" kind of like Obama's "Together we Thrive" slogan. Both Slogans cut from the same cloth
