Fox Guest Ties Obama to al Qaeda

Reported by Melanie - July 28, 2008 -

Your World w/Neil Cavuto loves the ex-Clinton supporters who have turned their allegiance to John McCain and who are more than willing to come on the show to get their 15 minutes and say whatever they want about Barack Obama. Fox is apparently unable to find actual Republicans who are going to vote for McCain so they're getting two-fers with this crowd.

But today's (July 28, 2008) appearance by Cristi Adkins was the most vicious to date. In a segment captioned (via the chyron), "Clinton Supporters Donate $1.6M to Obama in June," Adkins, egged on by substitute host Alexis Glick, had some choice words for anyone thinking about voting for Obama and, of course, Fox loved every minute.

Adkins said that "When most people go to the polls, they want someone they can trust. And for us, Clinton was that person and Obama is far from it."

Glick wondered what was wrong with people giving funds to Obama because, "they have now decided that he's the candidate of their choice?"

Adkins said,

Well, to make the leap from Clinton to Obama surprises me because he's unqualified, he's unvetted, he's inexperienced and he's also very dangerous um, in my opinion, and in a lot of, opinion [sic] of other Clinton supporters in our group, Clintons4McCain.

I don't understand how people can just blindly follow someone just because they slapped a Democratic label on him. We need to vet this man and he is dangerous and with the abundance of ties and affiliations that he has. Rezko, Odinga, just to name a few. With friends like those, who needs al Qaeda?"

(Not a peep from Glick.)

Comment: Is it any wonder Cavuto trots this crowd out roughly once a week? And is it any wonder Adkins was on immediately following an appearance by Larry Summers who talked about Obama's economic plan? Just in case anyone thought Summers made sense, Fox slapped Adkins up to slap that down.

I'll try to post video later. Something screwy happened with my recording. I'll see if I can straighten it out and get it up.
