View Full Version : Obama campaign LEAKED his "prayer" at the Wall to the press.

Remember when Obama "prayed" at the wall? The prayer he said was "leaked" to the press. Well it turns out, it was actually Obama's own campaign who leaked it.

http://web.israelinsider.com/Articles/Politics/13021.htm


What initially seemed to be a journalistic scoop of dubious moral propriety now seems to be a case of an Israeli paper being played by the Barack Obama campaign. Maariv, the second most popular newspaper in Israel, was roundly criticized for publishing the note Obama left in the Kotel. But now a Maariv spokesperson says that publication of the note was pre-approved for international publication by the Obama campaign, leading to the conclusion that the “private” prayer was intentionally leaked for public consumption...

For that "scoop" the paper has come under fire. Yediot Aharonot, the country's most popular daily, published an article Friday saying it had also obtained the note but decided not to publish it, to respect Obama's privacy. Other Israeli media outlets initially ignored the story, or picked it up only after the initial publication had triggered a controversy.

"Lord - Protect my family and me," reads the note.

"Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will."


However, it now appears that Maariv had collaborated with the Obama campaign in getting the "private" prayer, with its "modest" supplicaton to the Lord, out to the public, buffing his Christian credentials and showing his "humility."...

If the Maariv statement about pre-approval of publication of the note is true, it would mean that the Obama campaign had managed the event brilliantly, if deceptively, getting the double benefit of appearing to be victimized by the invasive Israeli press and prayer-thieving Jew while at the same time leaking out his humble Christian plea to the Lord. ...

Already by the weekend, a (relatively) slick video appeared on YouTube that blended Obama's Western Wall prayer with various church scenes, crosses aplenty, a dove of peace, and a soundtrack based on Amazing Grace. The video closes with a "vote" button and an invitation to visit the official campaign website.

Revelation of this latest Obama collaboration with the media might detract a bit from the perceived sincerity of the prayer and strike some as an especially cynical use of the Kotel and an obstensibly private prayer to the Deity as a campaign prop. Most politicians suffice with getting a photo-op. Obama may be the first to take a prayer-leak on the Wall.

And that's pretty much what he did. He pissed on Judaism's most holy site with a political stunt designed to win the hearts of Jews. This f-er CANNOT be trusted with the White House.

This f-er CANNOT be trusted with the White House.He sure is a bit of a low life,It's all about Obama ..! Reminds me of the story of the Pharisees's prayer: “Lord I our thank thee that I am not like these publicans” !… Unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter into the kingdom ..

That's pretty much my perspective on it.

This whole trip was a series of fake photo ops. His Berlin speech, ostensibly part of his campaign, was made in front of a German audience with an American press corps, but he deliberately avoided meeting wounded American at Landstuhl, who actually could vote. His Afghanistan and Iraq events were more of the same.

His Berlin speech, ostensibly part of his campaign, was made in front of a German audience with an American press corps, but he deliberately avoided meeting wounded American at Landstuhl, who actually could vote. His Afghanistan and Iraq events were more of the same.

Actually, the German audience was awash in beer and had seen two wildly popular bands for free before Obama went on.


While coverage of Senator Obama's Berlin speech
provided audiences here at home nothing less than a
visual "shock and awe," it neglected to mention that the
well-hyped speech had an opening act: a gratis concert
by two wildly popular groups, Reggae artist Patrice and
rock band Reamonn (pictured below with Barack Obama).
While we appreciate the Obama Campaign's hospitality,
on behalf of furthering US-Germany relations, offering
free bratwurst, pizza and even beer for three hours
during the free rock concert, we question whether or not
the monies might have been better spent here on
financially strapped US citizens.

Similarly, back on May 20, 2008 in Portland, Oregon,
Senator Obama took the stage following the critically
acclaimed local band The Decemberists, who gave a rare
free concert for 75,000 fans. While news stories
generated by both appearances focused on the enormity
of the crowd size, few mentioned the accompanying
perks, leaving some to question whether revelers are
showing up for Senator Obama or for free food and
entertainment. Without this additional information,
Just Say No Deal contends that Americans are being
misled about the presumptive Democratic nominee’s
true popularity."

Our country is really going down---free bread and circuses, like in the Roman times. It's very frightening. The MSM will keep this buried so few will know about it.

I sent the PUMA link to Hannity. Here's hoping he follows up on it in his Stop Obama Express.

It will get even worse. Obama is making a 5 million dollar Olympic ad buy:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign has bought $5 million worth of advertising time from NBC Universal to run TV spots during the Olympic Games, a source familiar with the deal said on Wednesday.

The package, believed to be an unprecedented political media buy for the Olympics, includes commercials that will run on the NBC network and cable channels such as USA, MSNBC and CNBC during the August broadcast of the Summer Games, the source said.

Both NBC and Obama's campaign declined to comment.
