Childers Requested First Lady ‘On Behalf of Constituents’

August 3, 2010

We learned today that Time has issued a clarification of a story from last week where a Democratic source listed Rep. Travis Childers among a host of Democrats who have requested campaign appearances from Michelle Obama this fall. The updated story still has Childers’ name in it with this new point at the end of the article:

“The original version of this article cited Travis Childers as one of the dozens of Democratic congressional candidates who have asked the White House for Michelle Obama to appear in their districts this fall. Childers’ office says the request was submitted on behalf of constituents and was not political in nature.”

Needless to say, the NRCC and Alan Nunnelee camp are happy to have this story linger for a little longer. The more interesting thing is that the Time article was five days old before WTVA picked it up, and Childers was forced to respond at that time.

    Yea… Sounds like some “if by whiskey” comment… Maybe she can come to North Mississippi and insult some more of our statewide elected officials again.

    Since it appears true that Michelle Obama will make an appearance for Childers, some of us conservatives have got some work to do. However Mrs. Obama is viewed, we must remember that she was every bit of an active architect concerning Obamacare as anyone. I suggest that you researchers explore Michelle Malkin’s articles concerning Mrs. Obama’s apparent involvment in the Chicago “patient dumping scheme”. Mrs. Obama’s push for child/school children welfare/nutrition is an act of carrying water for SEIU. We don’t need union involvment in our schools, etc. and we don’t need our government interfering with the rights and responsibilities of parents. We must show that Childers is actively tied to this adminstration as he pretends to distance himself from President Obama.
    I still say that he is merely a pleasant coat holder, not actively involved the worst destruction, but definetly available if called upon.
