    This tape may or may not land in the public domain. However, I read that the Obama campaign has issued a "transcript" of this video to major news outlets. They have translated what is being construed as "whitey" into "why'd he" (why would he) - now what is left to see is which of these two terms make sense in the sentences she is saying.

    I would find it very difficult to believe that Michelle with her background and education would use the term.

    This may very well explain why the tape hasn't been released. If it can't be confirmed unequivocally that she said "whitey", you can't raise the issue, otherwise, it will backfire completely on the McCain campaign. What we have here are some out-of-control GOP 527's.

    It does appear from what I've been reading from credible resources that this will either break wide open in the next day or two or completely disappear if this tape turns out not to be what it is.

    I'll attach some links for those who care once I have them consolidated.

    Did they say whether or not she's talking with Farrakhan?

    There was no mention of it. Also, the blog that first reported it, Right Pundits, didn't mention Farrakhan either. Somewhere, Farrakhan got added into the rumor.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    What McCain N-word type? I bet he's got plenty of footage of him saying "gook" though.

    you are talking about one sentence. the rest of her diatribe includes "whitey" several times. If she did say why'd he, once, please clarify the other words in the speech you are describing. Thanks.

    First of all, the transcript "supposedly" goes as follows:

    Whitey cut folks off Medicaid?
    Whitey let New Orleans drown?
    Whitey do nothing about Jena?
    Whitey put us in Iraq for no reason?*

    or...

    Why'd he cut folks off Medicaid?
    Why'd he let New Orleans drown?
    Why'd he do nothing about Jena?
    Why'd he put us in Iraq for no reason?


    Given the fact that the events mentioned here are fairly recent (specifically New Orleans and Jena) and both Barack and Michelle knew that he'd be running for president at this point, I highly HIGHLY doubt she would have gone on such a rampant tirade against white people even if only for pure political reasons. I'm pretty sure this was a hoax in the same boat as the "McCain fathered an illegitimate black child" campaign of 2000. No evidence, just another fear-mongering tactic.

    Also, don't blame this one on the GOP just yet. The report was supposedly started and fueled by Larry Johnson, an ardent Hillary Supporter who has compared Obama to Hizbullah more than once.

    Yeap, thats the same transcript I saw. This is going away. Larry Johnson, a staunch Clinton supporter, is the one who claimed she was saying, "whitey". Now that we know it was a Clintonite spewing this filth, we know if it were legit, it would be all over the television to save Hillary's primary.

    Also, only 3 of the 4 are grammatically correct with Whitey, 4 of 4 with Why'd he. Michelle Obama is quite educated enough not to make a mistake like "Whitey do nothing..." or at the very least to do another take if she slips.

    I bet you can't wait to add this to your artillery of rumor-based smear-campaign, can you? Maybe try educating yourself on actual issues instead of reading the political equivalent of tabloids and you might prove useful.

    your comparison reveals your ignorance of history, given your youth, for such brands should not be thrown about so recklessly. Hitler killed millions of people. i guess the pittsburg public schools really suck.
