National Enquirer says it has proof of Obama mistress

Rick Moran
Yes, they were the only media outlet to pursue and report the Edwards mistress story. But considering their track record on this sort of thing taken as a whole, I think we should put our skeptic hats on.

For what it's worth, here's what National Enquirer is reporting:

And now, a hush-hush security video that shows everything could topple both Obama's presidency and marriage to Michelle!

A confidential investigation has learned that Obama first became close to gorgeous 35 year-old VERA BAKER in 2004 when she worked tirelessly to get him elected to the US Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions.

While Baker has insisted in the past that "nothing happened" between them, the ENQUIRER has learned that top anti-Obama operatives are offering more than $1 million to witnesses to reveal what they know about the alleged hush-hush affair.

Among those being offered money is a limo driver who says that he took Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous where the President was staying.

On the condition of anonymity, the limo driver said he took Baker "from a friend's home in the DC area to the Hotel George where I learned later that Obama would be spending the night."

The driver recalled that he "waited in the lobby while she went to change her outfit.

"But to the best of my knowledge she did not have a room at the hotel and she was not staying there so I thought that it was a bit odd."

The driver said he then picked up Obama at the airport and drove both he and Baker to various locations while he was campaigning for funds. Vera accompanied him to each meeting.

"About 10:30 PM, I drove them to the hotel and they went in together!"

Clarice Feldman sent along a link to the same story breaking in the Swiss paper Le Matin that reports a security cam catching the pair coming and going from the hotel together. There also may be emails between the two.

Would Obama be stupid enough to leave a paper trail? He might be arrogant enough to figure no one will report on it which means if the story is true, there might be some circumstantial evidence of some trysts.

This story surfaced in the fall of 2004 and was immediately shot down by the Obama senate campaign. Baker denied it. The press never followed up. End of story.

It appears that the Enquirer has a lot of smoke, some dot connecting, and that's about it. Unless they have pics of the president and Baker in flagrante delicto, our watchdog media will ignore the story, as they did with the Edwards scandal, and pretend that it's all an exaggeration by evil right wingers and besides, does it really matter anyway?
