They post this stuff to shock people so that they will buy their magazine, it's not a right-wing attack on the president. However, Obama does need to address this and prove his innocence, not lie like Clinton did.
    Whoa there young man. I, as a member of "the left" can say the exact same thing I have said when it is a right winger who get's caught...it ain't none of my damn business what politicians do in their free time. Their private life is theirs, we should butt the hell out.

So, I would think he should just ignore it just like he is ignoring the birther issue.
    Obama did briefly address the birther issue though. He proved his citizenship by showing his Hawaii birth certificate. If I was Obama I would see if this story spreads at all, if it stays and the Enquirer level than it's really a non issue, but if people read this and it becomes an idea I would definitely come up and prove that it's false. Even though the whole birther thing was disprove there are many that cling to it, just like there will be some that cling to this. However sex scandals are a little different and Americans tend to not give the benefit of the doubt because often times the allegations are true and heavily denied before proof turns up (like with Clinton, Edwards, and Stanford). I think currently Obama should just ignore it, but if it gets around he needs to confront it and put an end to something that could be devastating.

    I'm not saying all liberals act irrationally like that. And I agree with you, sex scandals are none of the public's business. It should stay between those involved and not be leaked into the media. It damages the family and just hurts all around. However, the media can't let go of stuff like this and they foam at the mouth to report it. Plus Americans like watching it all like a sitcom and using the scandals to paint every member of that political party as an adulterous lier.

    But that is not a left/right thing. Singling out the left, for doing something the right does as well, and we both seem to agree is not the right thing to do, is just a manner of using scandal unfairly for political gain.

    Just curious.

    Now that it has been proven to be false, I wonder if all of you who voted yes can explain why. Because you don't like Obama? Because facts are meaningless to you?

    Just wondering.

    Sorry, but no.

    He is public property... just like those doctors in the process of being nationalized.

    The only difference is Obama such situations make him a threat to national security. Blackmale by foreign governments... and the like.

    I bet you would be wrong, and I bet I have publicly on these very boards stated the exact same thing about republican politicians. I am 100 % consistent in my stand here. Politicians should have a certain amount of privacy, and who they sleep with has zero bearing on their job.

    To prove the point, here is an example of my defending the private life of a republican:

At some point, I think every one, even politicians, should be accorded a certain amount of privacy, and who they sleep with falls within that amount of privacy. I just do not care if a politician is gay, or has an affair, or hosts wild orgies. We owe them that little bit of respect for their private lives.

    It is still my opinion that at least 51% of the people that voted for Obama did so because he was a black man and had a good chance of being our first Black president and no more reason than that.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I dont care if they are rep, dem, ind, I feel if they have shown such a display if dishonesty they should not be allowed to hold a public office. (not saying he has done this).

    Hey... What if he was in one of those "open relationships" with his wife. You know where they can go bang anyone they want to.
