Hillary’s on the attack against Obama. And boy has she released some whoppers.
It all started on Dec 2nd, when Howard Wolfson, Clinton’s Communications Director, said this on Meet the Press.
“There’s a lot that voters don’t know about Barack Obama.”
Oh really, Mr. Wolfson. Yes, he was right. There was a lot we didn’t know about Barack Obama, and Hillary’s campaign has made sure that we know. In the last few weeks we have seen quite the barage of anti-Obama dirt.
First, the infamous kindergate press release, showing Obama’s true intentions for the White House, a plan he charted out at age 5.
In kindergarten, Senator Obama wrote an essay titled ‘I Want to Become President.’
“Iis Darmawan, 63, Senator Obama’s kindergarten teacher, remembers him as an exceptionally tall and curly haired child who quickly picked up the local language and had sharp math skills. He wrote an essay titled,’I Want To Become President,’ the teacher said.”
Devestating. And he did it again in third grade! The tenacity. I’m sure that he did drugs as a teenager as part of his grand plan to be “authentic” and “honest” to win in 2008.
But there was more. On Dec 4th, Hillary dug deep, and found this tasty bit. In the Illinois State Senate, Barack Obama voted present. NINE TIMES.
Speaking in Iowa, Clinton singled out nine roll calls in which Obama voted “present.” The votes dealt with abortion and gun-control initiatives.
Did it matter that this was the strategy of the Illinois pro-choice community? No. Barack voted present. Presidents can’t vote Present. Barack can’t be President. See the logic?
Then this came out. Barack Obama was reaching out to College Student. COLLEGE STUDENTS! He wants College Student who spend the majority of their time in Iowa, pay taxes in Iowa, and often work in Iowa, to VOTE ?! The audacity!
In a jab at Obama’s efforts to encourage out-of-state students who attend college in Iowa to caucus, Clinton said the caucuses are only for people who live in this state.“This is a process for Iowans. This needs to be all about Iowa, and people who live here, people who pay taxes here,” she told the clear Lake crowd.
Then another bomb today. A questionaire that Obama filled out 11 years ago, in which he opposed capital punishment, supported abortion rights, was against the spread of handguns and, listen to this, supported Government-run Universal healthcare! OBAMA IS TOO LIBERAL TO BE ELECTED. How dare he take common sense Progressive stances on the issues. We need to win in red states. Obama won’t sacrifice his values to pander to red state voters, how can you vote for him?
So yes, Hillary, there was a lot we didn’t know about Barack Obama. He had dreams as a grade school student. He worked with the pro-choice community to protect abortion rights. He wants to encourage young people to vote and participate in the election process. He was as Progressive on the issues that matter in 1996 as he is today in 2007.
I, personally, can’t wait for whatever dirt you can dredge up next! (or should I say Drudge?) I recommend reading his autobiography, unlike yours it’s honest and truthful, and its full of dirt on Obama’s character. His human character, that is.
