I hope it's ok that I post this here...this is what was on Larry's Blog this morning at NO QUARTER...he is my hero...

What's on the Michelle Obama Rant Tape?
Here's what's known so far:

The Michelle Obama Rant Tape was filmed between June 26th - July 1st 2004 in Chicago, IL at the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Conference at Trinity United Church: specifically the Women's Event.

Michelle Obama appeared as a panelist alongside Mrs. Khadijah Farrakhan and Mrs. James Meeks.

Bill Clinton spoke during the Conference, as did Bill Cosby and other speakers, but not at the panel Michelle attended.

Michelle Obama spoke at the Women's Event, but referenced Bill Clinton in her rant — his presence at the conference was the impetus for her raving, it seems.

For about 30 minutes, Michelle Obama launched into a rant about the evils of America, and how America is to blame for the problems of Africa. Michelle personally blamed President Clinton for the deaths of millions of Africans and said America is responsible for the genocide of the Tutsis and other ethnic groups. She then launched into an attack on "whitey", and talked about solutions to black on black crime in the realm of diverting those actions onto white America. Her rant was fueled by the crowd: they reacted strongly to what she said, so she got more passionate and enraged, and that's when she completely loses it and says things that have made the mouths drop of everyone who's seen this.

The "tape" is a DVD that Trinity United sold on its website, and possibly offered free for download up until March 2008 when Trinity's site was scrubbed and the DVDs were no longer offered for sale.

This outburst happened just one month before the 2004 Democratic Convention, when Barack Obama delivered the keynote address.

I my opinion what she said is an act of terrorism against our country. She should be arrested and at the very least not allowed anywhere near the White House. For the DNC to endorse BO and stain the party for the ever with this is beyond me. But if they are that stupid let them. I am no longer a part of that party and never want to be. Wish I never was. They are going to have a lot of egg on their faces when that DVD is finally released.

I contacted McCain's camp back in March. Said if Hillary was the nominee we'd be friendly foes, but if it were Obama I'd love to do Democrats for McCain.
They were very nice.
The thing is I'm changing my party reg. tomorrow, would've done it today but my kid was home sick. So tomorrow I guess I'll have to offer to head up FORMER DEMOCRATS FOR MCCAIN.
I don't mean to stay anonymous on this blog. I just need to come up with a good name.
