Henrietta Hughes; A Plant?
The obvious question is, was she a plant? this blogger found an interesting comment from a Michelle Malkin post:
...how does a 61 year-old homeless woman who’s living in a pickup truck with her son JUST HAPPEN to get a ticket so she can VERY PUBLICALLY [sic] ask Prez. Obama for a HOUSE? Anyone? Who pushes her up on stage? She’s right at the front of the crowd. Did she just happen to get a seat there?
Now, within moments of this happening, it’s trumpeted all over the news. AND, surprise, surprise, the wife of State Representative Nick Thompson, Chene Thompson JUST HAPPENS to have a spare house worth $150,000 lying around, so she GIVES it to this unemployed, homeless, living-in-a-truck woman. They’ve been homeless for “more than a year”, which coincidentally, predates the current housing and banking crisis by quite a while. How did they learn about the “Obama Town Hall and Tent Revival”? Were homeless people simply rounded up? Did someone pre-canvas the area in search of “great, tear-jerking stories”? Of all the people in the audience, SHE’S one of the ones Obama chooses to ask a question?
We know Pbama has had plants in his audiences before, witness his Faintergate episodes. Why would anyone think he wouldn't plant a "homeless" person in his audience? It's not Hope 'n Change, it's Smoke 'n Mirrors - bad, cheesy, Smoke 'n Mirrors - the sleight-of-hand performed by some fourth-rate children's birthday party magician that cannot go unnoticed.
HOWEVER, AP Check Blogger cites Henrietta Hughes is not homeless:
A quick people search shows one Henrietta Hughes, 61 years old, in Fort Myers who has an address and phone number. Looks like she has a home after all. Peoplefinder also shows an available address though Hughes claims she has been homeless for more than a year. It also corroborates that she has a son (37 years old).
I have not handed out my ‘Founding Fathers Award’ in quite sometime, but today, I bestow this personal award of mine to Henrietta Hughes who showed courage beyond belief in that town-hall meeting in Fort Meyers, Florida.
As I heard her pleas to President Barack Obama for a kitchen and a bathroom to call her own, the tears came.
Finally our collective-misery had a face in Henrietta Hughes...
Look, we know little of Ms. Hughes or if anything she said during that town meeting is accurate or truthful.
That her appearance just happened to be the final question is more than just a coincidence.
Was she a plant? How could anyone think otherwise is the real question.
Seems Ms. Hughes needs to be "vetted" in the same manner as Joe The Plumber.
But, dude, watch the video of the stalker behind her and then Julio the McDonald's guy. We need to reopen the nuthouses.
We use: Looneybin(s) now.
I can't there are people out there who fall for this b.s.
All hail the lightworker (PBUH).
These people will stop at nothing.
If this woman isn't a plant, then I don't know WHAT is.
Get a god damn job, LADY!
It does, Theodore.
Will Anjelina Jolie be angry she doesn't get an Oscar that year?
