About Those (Bogus?) Michelle Obama Audio Tapes

People may recall the big buzz about some supposed audio tapes with Michelle Obama where she loses her composure and lashes out at ‘white racists’ opposing The One. Apparently, if the source of those tapes is to be believed, they will be handed over to Fox News sometime soon.

API has an ongoing discussion with FOX NEWS on the best way forward in the process of releasing Michelle Obama tapes to the American people.

API hopes the negotiation will be completed as soon as possible so that the tapes can be made available to FOX NEWS in the next few days and specifically before the voting day – the 4th of November.

The important thing we want the readers to know is how the tapes will be handled once it finally leaves API’s custody. API has confidence in FOX NEWS and will allow them to decide whether the tapes will be aired in full, edited or unedited. Once the tapes are released to FOX NEWS as per agreement that will be arrived at between the parties, API believes that FOX NEWS  is competent enough to decide on how to proceed in handling the tapes because – better than us in API – they know what is best for the American listeners.

Still not sure what to make of this one. I don’t understand why API did not just release them – except they must have feared a major legal response. Personally I don’t think these will change the motion of the election very much at all.

    “I don’t understand why API did not just release them – except they must have feared a major legal response. ”

    Or maybe something more obvious – like its a bogus story because they keep coming up with new lame excuses why they can’t produce the audio. They can make repeated public accusations about what Michelle Obama allegedly said on the tape, but their lawyers are concerned about liability if they release the tapes to back up their claim? Are you joking – that doesn’t even pass the laugh-out-loud test. And people like AJ keep spreading the rumors just like the API wants them to in order to keep the lie alive. Gee, I wonder why?

  2. This Michelle is probably just like Nelson Mandela’s wife tire necklaces and all.

    But do you really believe that now Fox is involved after all their so called procastination?

    I don’t put it past her to threaten people but why bring it up unless you know some one at Fox who concurs.

  3. bush_is_best says:

    classic republican logic:

    “Michelle Obama is like Nelson Mandelas wife, because they are both black, and since Winnie Mandela was once accused of inciting violence in South Africa where the horrible and infamous ‘tire necklace’ killings took place, she and Michele Obama must be the same”

    Relate something horrible, fearful and completely unrelated to your opponent, in a dishonorable attempt to win a few votes.

    You are retarded.

    This strikes me as one of those side stories that might not even be worth pursuing just because there are plenty of other, more solid reasons to oppose the election of Obama. The stories of Michelle Obama (including the lobster-and-caviar story that the New York Post now tells us was a hoax), the birth-certificate thing, the whole is-he-or-is-he-not-a-Wahhabi nonsense, and the like — these things just don’t make as solid a case (for me, at least) as (1) Obama’s involvement with ACORN (and thus with massive voter fraud) and with education radicals like Bill Ayers, (2) Obama’s desire to “spread the wealth around” (as opposed to funding the government), and (3) Obama’s treatment of Joe the Plumber, and of anybody else who dares to criticize Obama in public.

  5. missy1 says:

    I agree with Aitch748 on this one.

    Read through the post and comments L Johnson from No Quarter did yesterday on this issue, I’ve been curious about his blog for awhile, they come up with interesting material.

    He mentions that two Democratic journalists and a Republican have copies of the tape. He also said that the McCain camp does not want it released. Also note, LJ doesn’t seem to have much confidence in API.

    Apparently the Obama camp claims that Michelle Obama said “why’d he” not “Whitey,” so a tape must exist.


    Frequent commentors in the thread that have followed this story view API as not credible and LJ agreed. Tried to find the comments, but now there are almost 600 comments in the thread, I gave up. I took note of the comment because the first API remark came from someone that I view as a credible writer/contributer to his blog.

    I think the birth certificate / illegal alien thing is probably true and
    Obama has no legal right to be on the ballot.

    But the Michelle tapes is just black ops. I said a few days ago that
    by planting a stupidly false story, the Obama team tarnishes all
    Obama stories as crazed. (If nobody killed Marilyn then surely
    nobody killed Diana? sorry there in no logic there)

    The reason the birth story is worth pursuing is that if true, and
    on the balance of probabilities I do not believe Obama is a natural born
    American, then this can be pursued right into the Supreme Court
    and even after (I hope not!) Obama becomes president.

    Giving material to Fox News (Murdoch: Obama is a rock star) is
    pointless. It’s a way to bury a story, just like when the UK asked
    Russia to extradite some dude in the supposed Polonium spy case.
    Dead and buried, ain’t gonna’ happen. They get to say “we tried”.

    Since we are on the topic of rumors, I read about some really scary ones about McCain. Multiple sources have alleged that McCain fathered a black child out of wedlock, his wife Cindy is still a drug addict, he is a homosexual, and he is a “Manchurian Candidate” who is either a traitor or mentally unstable from his North Vietnam POW days. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McCain#cite_note-az-2000-120

    It is all there in black-and-white on the internet! These stories are a bit dated (2000), but they are all from credible Republican sources. I think these stories merit some serious discussion – at least until McCain is somehow able to prove they are false.

    “I don’t understand why API did not just release them”

    Because they don’t exist. SASQ.

    If they do turn to be legit, I promise that I will eat all $150,000 worth of clothing that the RNC purchased last month for Sarah Palin and her family.

    I hear that Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue (those lovely “small town Main Street” stores) make delicious outfits.

  9. missy1 says:

    Sarah Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe is going to be auctioned off for charity after the campaign.

  10. VA Voter says:


    This is an article and video regarding Obama’s birth certificate and the case brought against Obama about his qualifications to be president.

    You are probably fed up with this continued discussion. I don’t recall your taking up a post about the totality of the lawyer’s arguements.


  11. ivehadit says:

    I wondered if the birth certificate thingy was why o went to Hawaii…besides his grandmother being ill. But she broke her hip last month, I believe. Hard to get the truth out of that bunch…
    Or did he leave in a huff over Biden’s comments?

    And really, what the heck was Biden talking about??? Unbelievable.

  12. norm says:

    nice to see you are still chasing unicorns.
    what’s the difference between a pug and a myth? $350,000 in make-up and clothes.

  13. conman says:


    I know you did a post yesterday about Palin being the GOP leader of the future, but I really think you need to do another one today to drive the point home. While I was initially doubtful about her reformer credentials, the more I learn about her the more I realize that she really is just a regular American that would sweep into Washington D.C. and bring real reform to the elitist cesspool that currently exists. The examples are endless:

    Just today we learned that the RNC spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize Palin, including $49,425.74 at Saks Fifth Avenue and $75,062.63 at Neiman Marcus. I mean what average American doesn’t routinely shop at places like Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus? And who hasn’t spent over $150,000 on clothes in the last two months? She probably could have spent $300,000 if she wanted to, but I’m sure being the reformer that she is she told her staff “times are tough, we need to tighten our belts and just figure out how to get by on a measley $150,000”! And as Missy pointed out, Palin’s campaign happily agreed to donate all of the clothes to charity – of course, they did it after they were asked to explain the justification for such a large expense, but still a nice gesture.

    We also learned today that Palin has charged the state of Alaska $21,012 for her families 64 one-way and 12 round-trip commercial flights, and hotel rooms since she took office in December 2006. The charges included costs for hotel and commercial flights for her daughters to join Palin to watch their father Todd Palin in a snowmobile race, and a trip to New York, where the governor attended a five-hour conference and stayed with her daughter Bristol for five days and four nights in a luxury hotel. After she was picked by McCain as his running mate and reporters asked for the records, Palin ordered changes to previously filed expense reports to specify that the family was invited to these events even though several event organizers said they were not. http://www.boston.com/news/politics/2008/articles/2008/10/22/alaska_paid_for_palin_daughters_to_travel/. Think about how expensive these charges would have been for the State had one of those typcial elitist/non-reformer politicians done it – they probably would have flown first class and stayed in an even nicer luxury hotel!

    We can add these recent examples to prior news stories about Plain’s reformer streak, like the fact that she claimed and received $16,951 from the State of Alaska as her per diem allowance for staying in her own home. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/09/08/AR2008090803088.html. Despite all of the criticism on the left, I think it is only fair for Palin to get a State allowance for living in her own home – after all, Sarah and Todd Palin only made a combined $217,790 last year (Sarah Palin has a $125,000 annual salary and Todd Palin reported $92,790 of income last eyar). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Todd_Palin. Those damn elitist don’t understand how hard it is for regular folks like the Palins to get by on $217,790 a year!

    After Sarah and Todd Palin testify in the second investigation of the troopergate scanadal this week, I’m sure she will be cleared of any abuse of power just like she was clear in the legislative investigation – except for that really minor part at the very beginning of the report that concludes: “I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 2952.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act.” http://media.adn.com/smedia/2008/10/10/16/Branchflowerreport.source.prod_affiliate.7.pdf

    I’ve been a Democrat for most of my adult life, but seeing what a regular person and real reformer like Palin could do for this country may force me to consider if I need to put the country first this election!

    bresch…………..back from Scotland again? You don’t spend much time there lately, maybe you’re getting concerned about your marxist.

  15. Terrye says:

    I will believe when I see it and hear it. I am not sure that I would trust API. The whole thing seems odd to me.

  16. conman says:


    How about putting the bresh/Scotland joke to rest? It wasn’t funny to begin with and don’t you think you have beaten that dead horse enough times?

  17. the good doctor says:

    Why would you throw this tape out now? You do it 3 days before the election. Hilary chickened out.

  18. BIB no I am not retarded Plenty of Black people were necklaced in Africa, He himself was a terrorist.

    In jail for bombing I believe. IF you don’t believe That Michele O hates this country except for what goodies she can get, no sense arguing.
    I did not say she did it. I will say that if Obama gets in there will be no more free elections.

    This one is not already. So quit being an idiot. How much of his money comes from out of the country?

    He is a Communist rabble rouser from way back and if you are not smart enough to see it. Stay out of my way..
    Africa is the prime example of Black Socialism at work.

    In the 1950’s when the evil white rules Africa exported food.
    Now all that many do is fight and kill and starve each other.

    Rhodesia was a great fruit exporter I believe. Is Zimabawe still?

    When I saw tapes of Hillary voters being threatened I see third world.
    If its phony then I bow to your superior wisdom

    Never argue with a fool!

  19. sbd says:

    They are going to pretend they gave it to Fox News and claim Fox is the one who won’t release it. As soon as they make the announcement that Fox News has it in their possession, the mob will redirect to Fox News website and Fox will get phone calls asking them when they are going to release the tape.

    In the meantime, API will say they are done with it and Fox will deny that they have it while everyone anticipates that Fox will air the tape three days before the election or API will imply it anyways. This entire bogus tape story is a red herring to distract the bloggers from continuing to dig for the truth by relying on Michelle Obama to do their work for them.

    Thank goodness for ANDY MARTIN who is going to expose the entire Obama lie tonight from Hawaii. His latest report says his 1st revelation has somehting to do with former Senator Fong. I think he is referring to Senator Fong’s involvement in the creation of 1965 Immigration Act.

    The 1965 Immigration & Nationality Act abolished the restrictive national origins system originally passed in 1924 in favor of a quota and preference system. Priority was now given to “family reunification” so that U.S. citizens and permanent residents could sponsor the following types of immigrants in this order of preference:

    1. Unmarried children under 21 years of age of U.S. citizens
    2. Spouses and unmarried children of permanent residents
    3. Professionals, scientists, and artists “of exceptional ability”
    4. Married children over 21 years of age and their spouses and children of U.S. citizens
    5. Siblings and their spouses and children of U.S. citizens
    6. Workers in occupations with labor shortages
    7. Political refugees

    Each country in the eastern hemisphere was given a quota of 20,000 but children under 21, spouses, and parents of U.S. citizens were exempt from this quota. Also, countries in the western hemisphere would not be subject to any quotas. Seventy-four percent of the eastern hemisphere’s quota was allotted to the four family reunification preferences, 20% of the quota was given to meeting the two occupational preferences, and six percent was allotted to political refugees. Immigrants admitted using the second preference could also petition to bring over their parents (who would not be subject to numerical quotas).

    Isn’t it ironic that Obama is now rushing to Hawaii to visit his “sick” grandmother at this time.


  20. Concerned Citizen says:

    I’d be shocked if this tape was real, unless API is holding Obama up for some serious cash hush-money. This just doesn’t smell real to me.

    OTOH, Obama does need to come clean on a few things:

    1- an original birth certificate, not one printed a couple years ago because the original was “lost”.

    2- College transcripts should be fair game and Obama needs to show those. You have to wonder what he put down as country of origin and race. Legally, you need to be at least 12.5% of a minority race to claim that status. Obama is about 6% black.

    3- Medical records. McCain turned in over 1,000 pages, Obama a single page

    4- Legislative records. These were also “lost”

    At this point, Obama is an International Man of Mystery.
