If It Is True Then I Feel Better About My Vote.

--posted by Tony Garcia on 10/24/2012
If this is true then I feel better about casting a vote for one of the two major Presidential candidates for the first time in 8 years (as opposed to third party candidates),
A man claiming to be a close pal to President Obama during college made contact with Republican operatives recently, ready to go public with claims that Obama used and sold cocaine in college...
Most politicians would have held onto the story and then had some staffer "leak" the information which would be officially unauthorized but unofficially coordinated. A slime ball, spineless evil politician would have heard of this information and, regardless of if it were factual, she would run with the story as if it was absolutely certain and a Biblical mission to destroy the opponent.

Romney's campaign...what did they do?
Operatives close to the Romney campaign were contacted and rejected the information, the source told Radar.

“They didn’t want anything to do with it,” the source said. “They thought it was not anything they wanted to be associated with or anything their candidate would want to be associated with.”

In fact, the man’s charges about Obama never reached Mitt Romney. [Emphasis added]
I know. There are plenty of crazy people who make stuff up all of the time to smear their opponents. There are plenty of unscrupulous people who will knowingly disseminate damaging details even when they know the details are false or a distortion. Some will even intentionally fabricate details or edit context just to denigrate someone who does not goose-step their way. I know several people personally who do this.

So what vetting has been done with this guy? Not much, but it is interesting what the reporting article claims.
A proposal of the man’s story was created and viewed by Radar. The document claims that there are multiple sources who can back up allegations that Obama used and sold cocaine in college.

The alleged pal was willing to go on the record for the story and take a polygraph test, according to the source.
Again, the point of this post is to show the stark contrast from the norm that is Romney's campaign. And to admit that, if this is true, I am pleasantly surprised.

Someone not in the Romney campaign but working to help Romney knew what the value of this story would be (regardless of its truth).
“The operatives close to the Romney campaign believed the man’s story would be the ultimate October Surprise but they got nowhere. “People who would have taken the information to the highest levels of Romney’s campaign just wouldn’t touch it. “They don’t want their candidate smeared with this type of activity.”
And the staffers didn't bat an eyelash. This a big difference from, say for example, 6 years ago when Klobuchar's staffers illegally accessed their opponent's unreleased campaign ads. Color me pleasantly surprised and very satisfied with my vote this year.
