Whatever John. The "I believe" part was the condensed version of the story the way I heard it. The rest of what I said was my feelings on the matter.
Again, whatever their intentions were, covering it up is even worse, and he's still a better pick than Romney, and I still wish it was Bill Clinton on the ballot instead of either of them.
It is my opinion that the Republicans would actually rather have Obama in office. That way they can get passed what they want, block what they don't, and blame him for everything.
It's a win win for them.
