LOBSTER: Republican zealots LIE to steal elections

Another lying email making the Whisper Campaign from the 'southern command':

" The truth is, in order to get things like Universal Health Care and a revamped Education System, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of the pie so that someone can have more."
OH REALLY?

Who is the someone that gives up a piece of the Pie?
Keep the Change

The problem is... this is a FAKE! She didn't eat Lobster...she wasn't even at the Waldorf. Here's the RETRACTIONS by the New York newspapers that the story was a trick:

Consider The Post's Lobster

But This is True

Correction of the day award goes to The New York Post's Page Six, which ran this item today:

The source who told us last week about Michelle Obama getting lobster and caviar delivered to her room at the Waldorf-Astoria must have been under the influence of a mind-altering drug. She was not even staying at the Waldorf. We regret the mistake, and our former source is going to regret it, too. Bread and water would be too good for such disinformation.

The original item, which ran on October 17th, has been scrubbed from the Post's Web site, but that doesn't mean it hasn't had an impact.

Rush Limbaugh's Web site has a transcript of the radio host reading the Page Six item and saying, "Now, the first thing about this is, if I'm the Obamas, I'm thinking, 'Who the hell called the newspaper on this?' These hotels are not supposed to say a word about what goes on in there. Trust me, they do." Mr. Limbaugh also termed the Obamas non-existent meal order "hypocrisy." (Weirdly—appropriately?—Mr. Limbaugh's transcription service renders the hotel's name 'Waldorf-Hysteria.')

Town Hall's Carol Platt Liebau wrote, "Look, I don't begrudge the Obamas their caviar and lobster. I like lobster, too (caviar? not so much). It's just that the whole mentality strikes me as typical of Democrat thinking."

Well that didn’t take long. The New York Daily has posted a retraction today to the story it ran mentioning that Michelle Obama ordered room service at the Waldorf-Astoria, dining on caviar and lobster. Turns out she wasn’t even at that hotel. A big to-do about nothing. Will the right-wing pundits back off from attacks on her based on bad information? Of course not.

    I wonder if all the folks who talked about how elitist and hypocritical Michelle is on your first thread about this will return to see the retraction?

You are just trying to deflect the attention to what she was saying and advocating: MARXISM/SOCIALISM.

Michelle and Barack are both Alinksky/Marx Socialists.
