DNC meeting, Larry Sinclair, May 31, 2008, Sinclair and Obama, drug use, cocaine, Sinclair’s story being heard

Larry Sinclair has been in Washington DC since Wednesday. Today he has tried to get into the DNC meeting. He has spent a lot of time mingling with the crowds and Hillary protestors and handing out flyers about his allegations of drug use and gay sex with Obama in November 1999. I just spoke with Larry and he is having great success spreading his story. He has met some major MSM stars and it looks like there will be many more interviews. Larry even had his picture taken with Congressman John Conyers. To read more about Sinclair’s experience today with the DNC and to read more about Sinclair’s allegations, visit here:

Robert Johnson, Obama comments, January 2008, something in the neighborhood, said it in his book, drug use, Clintons, black issues

I have revisited the comment made by BET founder and Hillary Clinton supporter, Robert Johnson. Johnson made the comment at a campaign rally in Columbia, South Carolina in January 2008. The apparent reference in the comment was drug use by Obama (mentioned in Obama’s book) and the inference that Obama may still be doing something in the neighborhood. Below are the quote by Robert Johnson, his apology and explanation and a rebuttal by Obama spokesman Bill Burton:
“I am frankly insulted,” Johnson declared, “that the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Hillary and Bill Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues since Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood -­ and I won’t say what he was doing, but he said it in the book -­ when they have been involved.”

Robert Johnson’s apology:
“My comments today were referring to Barack Obama’s time spent as a community organizer, and nothing else. Any other suggestion is simply irresponsible and incorrect,”

Obama spokesman Bill Burton:

“His tortured explanation doesn’t hold up against his original statement. And it’s troubling that neither the campaign nor Senator Clinton — who was there as the remark was made – is willing to condemn it as they did when another prominent supporter recently said a similar thing.”

I did not give Johnson’s comment much thought when I first heard it. Now, with all the other pieces of the puzzle forming a disturbing picture of the real Obama, Johnson’s comment has more significance for me. What has been going on in the neighborhood?
