(CNN) - One day after reports that a new book slamming presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama would debut in the top spot on the New York Times non-fiction best-seller list, his campaign called the author “a discredited, fringe bigot” and sent reporters a 41-page memo laying out alleged inaccuracies in his latest release, “Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality.”
"Jerome Corsi is a discredited liar who is peddling another piece of garbage in order to continue the Bush-Cheney politics he helped perpetuate four years ago," said Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor.
"His is one of what will likely be many lie-filled books rushed to print this election cycle that are cobbled together from debunked internet sources to make money and advance a partisan agenda. We will forcefully respond to these smears with all means at our disposal."
Corsi co-wrote a 2004 work attacking then-nominee John Kerry’s military record titled “Unfit for Command”; the Obama team called its response “Unfit for Publication.” It plans to post the contents of the document in full on its “Fight the Smears” Web site.
what do you expect of idle minds and people who really hate other human beings?
I can't defend Jerome Corsi, but for a guy who dislikes ad hominem attacks against him so much that he has created websites like "Fight the Smears," Obama sure does seem to enjoy flinging ad hominem attacks at others...
Corsi is a liar and a total sleeze bag who has already admitted his anti Obama agenda. The last time America fell for Corsi and his despicable lies we ended up with four more years of war,a ruined economy and a Trillion dollar debt. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Crawl back into your pit Corsi you viper.
Get im Barack!!!
This guy is an old, white, conservative fake. This guy is speaking for the generation from the depression and is completely out of touch with today's generation. This guy looks like a McCain/Bush supporter and these are the people who are too narrow minded to accept anything different from what their old brains are used to.
It is obvoius the Repubs don't want this election to be about the issues or the facts. Hopefully this carp will work in favor of Obama rather than against him. Last time they had surprise on their side. Now all they have is crap.
10 years sober.
BIGOT RACIST TRASH
I looked through it at Walmart. However, I refuse to waste my money, or give Corsi any more for this crapola. I really wish that politicians could sue for slander, someone like Corsi. Take him to court, make him prove his facts. Let's see the tapes and the interviews.
Corsi should curl up somewhere in a dark corner and puke in his mouth......
Its funny how I always see comments and BOOKS that state that we shouldn’t votee for (gamble on)the Democrats/Obama …..its scary…..blah blah blah ….You know the fear card.
To those who say this. Can you please look at the past 16 years.?With a democratic President things looked pretty good. We were able to stabilize our deficit and there were no crisis such as job losses and war. On the other hand, with Bush we had war war and more war. Even when it wasn’t warranted they still wanted war….we had job losses…..and home mortgage crisis and Orange Alerts …….enormous deficit……..and oil/gas crisis …..record number of countries that hate America …..and so on.
So the truth is if you don’t want to gamble VOTE DEMOCRATIC!!!
Don't let the dirty tactics win this time! They should consider putting this guy in court for spreading out lies
We can not let this discreditable man again work his black
"magic" against another honorable man. The MEDIA and
the PUBLIC should refuse to allow him any success with his
poison aimed at Obama. The arrow should return to him!!
It's sad that a well-researched book like "Prosecution of GWB for Murder" by Vincent Bugliosi does not get any media attention, and this crap does, enabling it to be sold to millions. This country really is full of racists, bigots, and just plain dumb people who still think Bush is doing a good job, and that McCain will be even better. That scares me more than the Taliban does.
It's funny to see him get shut down on CNN with King.
It's sad to see how much air time and respect he is getting over at FOX.
He's not even a McCain backer. He's in it for the money.
And by the looks of it, he's cashed in already. Wealthy conservatives buy his book in bulk to push him to the top of the NY times best sellers list.
There is a special place in hell for guys like Corsi.
Educate yourselves. Don't buy this trash.
A garbage of a book with straight out lies didn't we all condem James Frey from A Million Little Pieces for lying about his book and wanted our money back but if this guy does it AGAIN its ok Give Me A Break! He doesn't back up any of his claims with actual facts yet people will still go out and buy this book or wink wink conservative groups to put the book at #1.
Well, the guy came right out and said he basically made the book up because he didn't want Obama to be President.
I think that the Obama camp's outrage is justified, especially since the media has been giving such ridiculous coverage to a book which SHOULD be filed in the FICTION section.
Wait Corsi is called a bigot, but how do we know Obama's new book is all what he is going to do for us with his Change and Untiy motto. If he accomplish's zip if elected than Corsi's book wouldn't be bogus.
I see a defamation lawsuit coming.
why "alleged inaccuracies"? Surely, CNN has a copy of the memo and can check. I mean, that's what journalists would do, right?
"The capacity of the human mind for swallowing nonsense and spewing it forth in violent and repressive action has never yet been plumbed." -R.A.H.
I seen him on CNN last night he seems to be a pretty forthright guy to me, it was the crazed Obama supporter who came unglued and made himself and Obama look like an Idiot. I purchased this book, and most of the details I have already heard about and based on many of these facts I knew I have decided that I cannot in good faith cast a vote for Obama. Primarily his hate filled church membership of twenty years, that was enough for me….
Dem Not for Obama
Everything in this book is true. Obama supporters should actually READ the book before they start criticizing it.
The truth hurts, but its reality.
Go McCain- A real man, a real American hero.
People that believe this garbage are the same ones that gave us Bush TWICE – thanks for nothing! haha
Same people, same old tired stuff. When are people going to wake up! It's the same old playbook every election! They find some hack to make up lies and ignorant people believe them.
