Tea Party Launches 'Obama Phone' Ad - NYTimes.com

Tea Party Launches 'Obama Phone' Ad - NYTimes.com: "Last month the Drudge Report hyped a video of an African-American woman at an Ohio rally claiming the president had given her a free phone. “Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phones…Keep Obama in president, you know! He gave us a phone, he’s gonna do more.” Dozens of news sites took it upon themselves to explain that the Obama campaign was not in fact operating an electronics-for-votes ring in swing states, but that there is in fact a government program that provides low-income people with free or cheap phones. It started under George W. Bush, not his successor."
