O’s Private Prayer Note a PR Stunt?

Israel INN Reports:

In a statement issued following the public outcry over the leak, Maariv said that “Barack Obama’s note was approved for publication in the international media even before he put it in the Kotel, a short time after he wrote it at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.” A third newspaper, Haaretz, quoted Maariv as saying that “Obama submitted a copy of the note to media outlets when he left his hotel in Jerusalem.”

Based on these statements by Maariv, Israel Insider concluded that the Obama campaign “managed the event brilliantly, if deceptively, getting the double benefit of appearing to be victimized by the invasive Israeli press and prayer-thieving Jew while at the same time leaking out his humble Christian plea to the Lord.” The report noted that by the week’s end, “a (relatively) slick video appeared on [public video website] YouTube that blended Obama’s Western Wall prayer with various church scenes, crosses aplenty, a dove of peace, and a soundtrack based on Amazing Grace. The video closes with a “vote” button and an invitation to visit the official campaign website.”

Even for a Democrat, this is hitting the bottom of the barrel.
