This story is just the gift that keeps on giving, huh? Good luck
finding another viable candidate before November, GOP...
Romney was asked by Fox News host Neil Cavuto if the he thought the
Obama campaign planted the bullying story, and he answered, “Well, I
think you’re going to find, throughout this campaign season, that the
president’s team will be doing everything in their power to try and
hold up very shiny objects many of them will be with regards to me…”
According to Romney, this was all an evil Obama plot to distract the
American people, but the facts don’t support his claims. While
political folks and conspiracy theorists alike are speculating that
Obama’s announced support for same sex marriage was choreographed, the
reality is that Vice President Biden’s comments got the president to
make his announcement a little ahead of schedule. CNN reported that
Obama wasn’t supposed to make his support publicly known until his
appearance next week on The View.
If this was a diabolical setup, the Obama campaign managed to set up
an unscheduled network news interview, have the Washington Post get
the entire story including background research and interviews with
Romney associates in about 48 hours, and have the finished story
appear the morning paper after the unscheduled interview ran.
This was no plot by Obama.
