New York Post Retraction Michelle Obama

New York Post Retraction
October 21, 2008

"THE source who told us last week about Michelle Obama getting lobster and caviar delivered to her room at the Waldorf-Astoria must have been under the influence of a mind-altering drug. She was not even staying at the Waldorf. We regret the mistake, and our former source is going to regret it, too. Bread and water would be too good for such disinformation."

Palin says Obama's policies could lead to crises

By SANDRA CHEREB – October 21, 2008

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said Tuesday that Democrat Barack Obama's own foreign policy proposals could create crises that would test him as president.

The Alaska governor raised the idea of a "looming crisis" in response to Democratic rival Joe Biden's remark at weekend fundraisers that Obama would face a "generated crisis" within six months of becoming president because he would be tested by adversaries of the United States. On the campaign trail, Republican presidential candidate John McCain also was using Biden's remarks to question Obama's readiness.

"I guess we gotta say, 'Well, thanks for the warning, Joe,'" Palin said to cheers from about 2,500 supporters at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. "But I guess the looming crisis ... is Joe Biden's next speaking engagement."

Palin to Give Deposition Friday

Republican vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin will take a three-hour break from the campaign trail Friday to give a deposition on her role in the firing of an Alaska public safety official, the Associated Press reported today.

The Alaska Personnel Board is conducting the investigation, led by an independent counsel.

It will be the first deposition of the Alaska governor, but the second inquiry into the matter. The first investigation by the Alaska state legislature found that Palin abused her power in her efforts to get her former brother-in-law, a state trooper, fired.

Palin was not subpoenaed in the first probe, although her husband, Todd, gave an affidavit. Todd Palin is also expected to give a deposition Friday.

The Palins’ attorney told the AP that the couple will offer depositions Friday afternoon, outside of Alaska, but at an undisclosed site. Palin’s Friday schedule has not been released by the campaign.

Palin Hits Obama For Stance On Pakistan She Recently Seemed To Support

(RENO, NEV.) - Shifting gears from the economy to foreign policy, Sarah Palin began her rally here with a series of scathing attacks, centered around Joe Biden’s recent comment at a fundraiser that a President Obama would face an international crisis within his first six months in office.

"Our opponent wants to sit down with the world’s worst dictators,” Palin said. “With no preconditions, he proposes to meet with a regime in Tehran that vows to 'wipe Israel off the map.'”

The Alaska governor criticized Obama for advocating cross-border attacks into Pakistan without that nation’s approval, disparaging him for suggesting that the U.S. should engage in “invading the sovereign territory of a troubled partner in the war against terrorism.”

But it was less than a month ago that Palin herself advocated invading the sovereignty of Pakistan, though she did not specify that the attacks would be without Pakistan’s approval.

“So we do cross-border, like from Afghanistan to Pakistan, you think?” Temple University graduate student Michael Rovito asked Palin at a Philadelphia restaurant on Aug. 27.

“If that’s what we have to do stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should,” Palin said.

When it was noted that Palin’s comments to Rovito seemed to echo Obama’s position on Pakistan while contradicting McCain’s, Palin accused the media of engaging in “gotcha journalism.”

But Palin has a different standard of what constitutes “gotcha journalism” when it comes to her opponents’ interactions with voters...
