Obama is Fighting the Smears

The Obama Campaign has added a Fight the Smears component to its web site. Karen Tumulty of Time.com explains why.

…Obama told his top aides it was time for a more aggressive solution to the rumors that have been popping up on the Internet about him and his family for months. And so the Obama campaign has built what might best be described as a Web-based rumor clearinghouse, located at fightthesmears.com, in which it hopes all the shady stories about Obama’s faith, his family and his rumored connections with controversial figures can go to die.

We did it! I’m proud of you!

A beautiful, loving moment.

 

The Crow Nation adopts Obama

Senator Barack Obama visits the Crow Nation in Montana and becomes Barack Black Eagle, “The One Who Helps People Throughtout the Land.”

For all the symbolism — members of the tribe wore colorful traditional clothing and feathered head-dresses — Obama addressed some issues of serious concern not only to the 12,100-member Crow Nation but to many Native American tribes around the country.

Obama told those gathered that he intended to acknowledge the “tragic history” of Native Americans over the past three centuries. They “never asked for much, only what was promised by the treaty obligations of their forebears,” he said, promising to honor those treaties.

Moreover, he pledged to bring sorely-needed “quality affordable health care and a world class education to reservations all across America. That will be a priority when I’m president.”

The visit was meaningful, said Darrin Old Coyote, a member of the tribe who wore an elaborate headdress. “To have us left out all these years, and then for him to come here, it shows respect, and it makes us optimistic,” Old Coyote said.
