There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that President Barack Obama had the CIA create the disaster in Chile, to put TV focus on Chile, and not on the political races. During that blackout, there has been quite a "swing" in the political races. Democrats have made tremendous gains during this time.
This can be attributed to "early voting arranging," and other "alterations" in changing the results.
Arrangements had been made to have Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and Reid be the last two rescuers out, but the rescue schedule, according to Obama, "due to Democratic efficiency," was executed much faster than originally anticipated. Obama thought it would be a "political coup" to have Nancy shown to the world as the brainchild of the entire operation, and the rescue "facilitator." Originally Joe Biden was the choice, but when he heard of the disaster, he flew to Cincinnati, Ohio, thinking the disaster happened to Skyline Chili and he held stock in that company.
Air Force One was on its way to Chile with many incumbent Democrats office holders on aboard, but was diverted back to Washington when Obama's plans were shattered by an efficiently run rescue operation, orchestrated by the Chilean Government.
As Air Force One was navigating a slow 180 degree turn, to head them North, when Obama was overheard saying, "They have done an excellent job, I wish I was Chilean, hey, maybe I am."
