Re-Read the original comment. The strong language used. The poster seems extremely offended by the suggestion.
Personally, like I mentioned earlier, if it WERE true, or something DID happen, I would have chalked it up to being in an "open relationship" before I would say, HE IS AN EVIL CHEATER! ARRRRR!. Then waited to see if Michelle got pissed.
I always said that about Clinton. If he wanted to cheat, so what? We are not the injured party, Hillary would be, and if she puts up with it, for whatever reason(and open relationship seems likely between those two), who are we to get upset? Now, there is more to the story than just cheating, and that is a whole other kettle of fish, but for just the cheating, I would bet money they both allowed the other the right.
Like Ive said before, I work/deal with the more wealthy "affluent" people in my city. One may (or may not) be surprised to find out that many of them are in these "swinger" clubs. I guess thats what wealthy people do. I wouldn't hold politicians to a standard above that, I think it has something to do with the level of stress some of these people deal with, coupled with the fact that all their peers and neighbors are doing it.
If that was the case, how come Jesse Jackson didn't win? Or Carol Mosley-Braun? Why then didn't liberals support Clarence Thomas? Why then don't they support Michael Steele?
There's a word for people who only see race, you know.
This poll lacks an I don't care option. I have to agree with Groucho, the only time this sort of thing matters is if the politician uses whatever as a reason to be elected.
I did not vote for Obama because of his family values. I voted for him because I thought he had good ideas and the validity of those ideas have nothing to do with extramarital affairs. However, I do have some concern because if it is true, it will harm his ability to implement those ideas.
Also, this poll is stupid because we have no evidence on whether he did cheat on Michelle or not. All we have is an Enquirer article. If other news outfits begin to pick this up, it will be worth paying attention to, but not before than. This means that we have to vote on the poll based on opinion that is not backed up by any real evidence.
