Clinton Pulls Negative S.C. Ad

By Anne E. Kornblut
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Under fire for airing misleading attacks on Sen. Barack Obama, the Clinton campaign has pulled a radio ad that quoted the Illinois senator calling Republicans "the party of ideas" and suggesting he thought those ideas superior to Democratic ones. But the Obama campaign has already counter-punched, launching a new radio spot saying Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will "say anything" to get elected.

The Clinton campaign did not immediately explain why it had pulled its radio spot, which had triggered a furious response from the Obama campaign and touched off a wave of criticism from Democrats who said the Clinton campaign has grown excessively aggressive in recent days. The Obama ad was no less fierce. It reminded voters that Clinton had voted to authorize the war in Iraq, saying she "voted for George Bush's war," and accused her of making "false attacks" on Obama.

"Hillary Clinton: She'll say anything and change nothing," the ad says.

Clinton tried to rise above the fray, delivering remarks on the economy here. She focused her public statements on President Bush, saying he had failed to confront a slipping economy during most of his presidency. Her aides, meanwhile, are downplaying expectations for how she will do here on Saturday, in the fourth nominating contest. Even though she has campaigned here at length and deployed her husband, described as her most effective surrogate, extensively, her advisers said they expect her to lose.

Falling asleep during somebody's speech is disrespectful. Regardless if people saw it on national tv or not. The ushers or somebody should have given Bill a cold glass of water to wake him up. His sleeping behind the speaker on a very important occassion on national tv made me feel uncomfortable. I don't like like feeling uneasy. It reminds me of some things I was trying to forgive and forget.

I am with you Jake!! I will not vote for Hillary under any circumstance. I am disgusted with the Clintons and their tactics, and unless Bloomberg enters the race as an Independent, I will not be voting for the first time in 38 years.

If you want to get a telling picture of the type of president Hillary would be, read the article by Sally Bedell Smith in the January 7, 2008 issue of Newsweek, "Hillary's Hidden Hand".

Hillary's interests are self interests and have nothing to do with what is "right", or best, for the people of this country.

The Clintons don't do or say anything unless they believe it gives them a strategic or tactical advantage. The Hillary/Bill "sort of" apology for "maybe going overboard" in attacking Obama may well be an effort to blunt their negatives and try to look positive and conciliatory just in time for the voting in SC.

I agree with many other posters that it's all about managing expectations for Hillary. She and Bill are trying to create an environment in which no possible outcome for Hillary in SC is considered a "loss." Which is a crock.

They're both a disgrace to the party and the country, and are acting like Republicans. I would question whether either has any sense of shame or honor, but that would be the mother of all rhetorical questions.

Reviewing Hillary's methodical playing of the "Race card", and "The Perpetual Victim" against Obama; and, her recent commentary on Iraq; Pakistan; Energy Policy; the need to control the American Economy from the White House (this from a woman who hasn't managed so much as a corner vegetable stand, unless you count Whitewater); Illegal Immigration; Taxes; Infanticide; Massive new Government spending; Socialized medicine; and, the Clinton's history of emasculating the military, verifies that this grievously flawed woman would be the female version of the Jimmy Carter debacle that gave us the Ayatollah Khomeini who ushered in rampant Islamic radicalism; block-long lines at our gasoline stations; a severely hollow military; and, a record Misery Index. Only much worse. Considering all of her recent gaffes, e.g. "I voted FOR IT (referring to the Bankruptcy Bill); but, I was glad to see that it didn't pass.", one has to wonder if excessive use of Botox has affected her mental stability. It's no wonder that her campaign staff is shielding her from reporter and audience unscripted questions. Greg Neubeck

Dear Senator Clinton,

How are you? I'm fine. I'm clearly confused. Why would you pay to make an ad, show it once, then take it off? If it wasn't a good ad, why did your ad people make it? I would have a talk with them if I were you. I would give them the same talk that you give people that accuse Senator Obama of taking drugs then quit your campaign. My mother says "If you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all." Of course, once someone says something, it's kind of hard to take it back, isn't it? Saaaaaayyyy. Maybe THAT's what you're doing! I get it. You say something bad, then say you didn't mean to say it, so you didn't REALLY say bad things but people hear the bad things anyways. I'm so glad the rest of us have smart people like you to look up to.

Sincerely,

Suzie

I used to really like the Clintons, but this race has really opened my eyes to their underhanded tactics. Shame on them. Should Hillary win the nomination, I think that I now feel so disenfranchised from the Clintons that I may just write in Obama's name in final election in November (assuming that he does not get the nomination).

Hillary should be careful what she wishes for! If she gets the nomination, then the real stress will begin for her and that disgraceful husband of hers. Things like White Water will surface again. Her connections with guilty donors will be brought up with far more information divulged than ever about these donors. The "stand by your man" attitude she displayed over the Monica mess will be fodder. I am married, happily; however, if my husband did that to me and my children, there is absolutely nothing that could have made me stay with him, much less support him -- no political future would be so important than to diminish myself in such a manner. Also, Vince Foster's death will (and rightfully should) come up again. The republicans are just licking their chops to go after her. I am sure the RNC already has enough information on her and Billary to discourage anyone from voting for her. I never knew that being First Lady qualifies you for the presidency. She certainly is not more qualified because of everything she has NOT done in the Senate. Bring it on!! Let the DNC put her out there. The true fun will begin and the Clintons will show their true colors!! They have already gotten off to a start in South Carolina!!!

We've seen Bill Clinton in office for eight years. During that time, we witnessed scandal after scandal. These were mainly little scandals of the petty, self-serving variety. Others, like the Vince Foster suicide, Bill Clinton's lieing under oath, and Hillary's obstuction of justice related to her "missing" Rose Law Firm billing records, were more damaging to our country. Most recently, we've seen Hillary Clinton perform her public duties in the US Senate. We've seen her vote for the Iraq War when it was politically popular and withdraw her support when it became politically expedient to do so. We've seen her lie about her record and her opponents during her presidential campaign. We've seen her feign tears in New Hampshire. We've heard her complaints of "piling-on" and "mudslinging" when questions about her record and her positions got too tough. After seeing and hearing all of this from Bill and Hillary, why would any reasonable person still want these two back in the Whitehouse for eight more years?

She mispronounced Nevada and put both hands on her head looking most silly, most robot like and again most rude. Look, Obama's wife is so unfit to be first Lady. She is rude, uncharming, and very low class. Obama is using very low class tactics against the Clinton, they are using double standard the exact technique now use in Kenya. If he is the nominee. I rather move to Mars. I do not want to look at a guy with a Muslim name to run our country, never in my lifetime, never in history, America will choose a guy with a Muslim name. Anybody who gave critics to Clinton in hope of raising Obama beware, he probably will go to Kenya first and change his school to President Obama school and yes, he probably put a new paint: black, because the white house does not need a new color. Vote Hillary, America is proud of her. Good healing 2008. HILLARY WILL BE THE FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT OF THE USA. WELCOME TO THE NEW CHIEF: MADAME HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON.

Hillary's numbers are down and Edwards is quickly moving up. Do not be shocked to see an Obama-Edwards-Clinton ranking. Edwards would have bragging rights to say he has beat Hillary in two states, and that he is just as much a strong candidate as the other two. He only helps Obama because he splits the white vote between all three candidates. If he is perceived as being a strong choice going into Super Tuesday, you will see Obama win a lot of states across the country.

Hillary asserts her view in Nevada to the illegals: "No woman or man is illegal."

In other words she thereby extends an open invitation to any and all Mexicans who might wish to migrate to the United States when she becomes president.

If Edwards was not in the race, the diehards there would all vote for Hillary; as it is now they can with self-respect vote for another "Son of the South" and not have to cast one in favor of that woman!

Obama might just slip through and win this primary.

But never count the Clintons out: As Big Bill has said "You gotta do what you gotta do."

Awesome article to help us analyze the political fiasco at the BlogZine SAVAGE POLITICS.

"The Boom Generation and their Pathetic Spawn" at www.SAVAGEPOLITICS.com

Here is an excerpt:

"Although lately it has been in vogue to criticize the Baby Boomer Generation for their role in mudding the political discourse in this Country, it has to be admitted that their generational offspring are even worse. The last couple of days has seen an increase in the discussion of generational conflicts and its effect upon the history of politics in the United States, engaging the Media in the affirmation that Senator Obama represents a "new generation", no longer "stuck" in the fight of the 1960's, always missing the fact that Barack Obama IS a border-line Baby Boomer himself (born 1961) and is only using this rhetoric for his convenience. Obviously, the fact that his principal speech writer (Jon Favreau -not the actor-) is himself a member of the 13th Generation (Generation X) is an important influence in the message that the Obama Campaign is reverberating throughout their advocacy for the White House. Contextually, in the last couple of days we have also been inundated with discussions regarding the supposed improper campaigning in which ex-President Bill Clinton has been engaging in, all in support of his wife Hillary Clinton, and to the detriment of the Obama Campaign. Claims of unjust favour and unfair practices have been pouring from those affiliated with Obama's camp, creating a bad taste in the "mouth" of many voters. How did our recent generations develop this drastic apprehension towards competition, strength and power?

American Baby Boomers experienced many changing events within their sociological habitat which can rapidly be utilized to explain this phenomenon. After all, their epoch gave birth to the Civil Rights Movement, the development of actionable Woman Rights advances, as well as other assorted international military conflicts which increased the strain upon their social fabric. State-Socialism (incorrectly still called Communism) was a competing ideological alternative to the Third World, which greatly increased the economic and Geo-Political stress laid upon them by their parent's interests, most of whom came from the famous Silent Generation, a group still bearing the wounds of the Second World War. And it was in this historic trauma, World War II, that all of this fear mongering and collective faintness was truly born. Firmly based upon comprehensive (some innocent others malicious) exaggerations of the true ideological cause of the horrors inflicted upon the world throughout its engagement and aftermath, the Era's financiers gladly took advantage of such dread and took aim at traditional Western Values, which were slowly beginning, for good or bad, to assume the blame for the incitement of the War and all the other social ills which prevailed at the time. And even though most of these problems were squarely founded upon the after-shocks of the Industrial Revolution, values such as Strength and Power were vilified within social and individual contexts..."

Hillary the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. She had several hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets", and ten roosters, whose job it was to fertilize the eggs.

Hillary kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of her time, so she bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to her roosters. Each bell had a different tone so Hillary could tell from a distance which rooster was performing. Now she could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.

Hillary's favorite rooster was old Bill; a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning Hillary noticed old Bill's bell hadn't rung at all! Hillary went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

But to Hillary's amazement, old Bill had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. Hillary was so proud of old Bill, she entered him in the Arkansas State Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result...The judges not only awarded old Bill the No Bell Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

Clearly old Bill was a politician in the making: who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

Vote carefully...the bells are not always audible.

The damage has been done, according to Dick Morris. Remember Dick Morris, the former Clinton insider? Here's an exert form his blog: "Why is Bill Clinton courting such intense publicity, inevitably much of it negative?
Is he crazy? Crazy like a fox. He has two goals and is achieving them both spectacularly.
First, he wants to be the same kind of lightning rod for Hillary that she was for him during his run for the presidency. As the 1992 Republican convention approached, Hillary ratcheted up her comments and profile precisely to attract GOP fire so that they would leave Bill alone. He and I discussed the plan. Hillary's comment, for example, about "baking cookies and serving tea" put her squarely in the Republican Party's sights as the convention approached.
The Republicans fell for the lure big time and spent their entire convention going after Hillary. Bill was scarcely hit. And the 1992 GOP convention is one of the few that afforded its party no bounce at all. Now Bill is returning the favor.
In the days before Iowa and leading up to New Hampshire, Hillary was the prime topic of political discussion. She took shots for misusing Bill's record and trying to adopt it as her own, for minimizing King's contribution to civil rights, for crying, for attacking her opponents, and for changing her campaign style to become more likeable.
Now, she rarely gets hit anymore. They're hitting Bill instead. Like a red cape, he is attracting the attention of the bull so his wife the matador escapes unharmed.
The other method behind his madness is that Bill wants to suck up all the oxygen in the room and dominate the coverage of the Democratic contest. By doing so, he cuts Obama out of the news, pushes him off the front page, and usurps the headlines. Of course, he also crowds out Hillary, but that's OK, given her large leads in the national polls and in all the big states whose primaries are coming up. If there were a newspaper and television blackout, Hillary would cruise to an easy win, so Bill, by injecting himself into the coverage and hogging it, is accomplishing the same goal.
His tactics now are reminiscent of those he used to black out John Kerry during the lead-up to the 2004 Democratic National Convention. By scheduling book signings and speeches in Boston, he effectively took the coverage away from the prospective Democratic nominee, a man who would have eclipsed Hillary's presidential ambitions had he won the election.
Ultimately, the Clintons are playing a game of jujitsu with Obama, using his own strength against him. By challenging Obama for the black vote - by promising to go door to door in South Carolina in minority neighborhoods, for example - Bill is highlighting the question: Will Obama carry the black vote? Of course, he will. He leads, 4 to 1, among African-Americans now. But by making that the central question, Obama's South Carolina victory will be hailed as proof that he won the African-American vote. Such block voting will trigger the white backlash Sen. Clinton needs to win."
THERE'S A METHOD TO CRAFTY BILL'S MADNESS (Title)
Jan 22 2008 www.dickmorris.com/blog
The difference between Obama's campaign and that of the Clinton Playbook is inclusiveness. Obama wants to include as many as he can under his tent, Independents and Republicans. The Clintons want to divide and conquer, pitting one voting block against another. The above exert is from a guy who knows the Clinton strategy well, and even though he has been away from them for some time, he recognized the strategy they're using now, because it was used before. Don't fall for it.

THERE'S A METHOD TO CRAFTY BILL'S MADNESS

By DICK MORRIS

Published in the New York Post on January 22, 2008.

Why is Bill Clinton courting such intense publicity, inevitably much of it negative?

Is he crazy? Crazy like a fox.

He has two goals and is achieving them both spectacularly.

First, he wants to be the same kind of lightning rod for Hillary that she was for him during his run for the presidency.

As the 1992 Republican convention approached, Hillary ratcheted up her comments and profile precisely to attract GOP fire so that they would leave Bill alone. He and I discussed the plan.

Hillary's comment, for example, about "baking cookies and serving tea" put her squarely in the Republican Party's sights as the convention approached.

The Republicans fell for the lure big time and spent their entire convention going after Hillary. Bill was scarcely hit.

And the 1992 GOP convention is one of the few that afforded its party no bounce at all. Now Bill is returning the favor.

In the days before Iowa and leading up to New Hampshire, Hillary was the prime topic of political discussion.

She took shots for misusing Bill's record and trying to adopt it as her own, for minimizing King's contribution to civil rights, for crying, for attacking her opponents, and for changing her campaign style to become more likeable.

Now, she rarely gets hit anymore. They're hitting Bill instead.

Like a red cape, he is attracting the attention of the bull so his wife the matador escapes unharmed.

The other method behind his madness is that Bill wants to suck up all the oxygen in the room and dominate the coverage of the Democratic contest. By doing so, he cuts Obama out of the news, pushes him off the front page, and usurps the headlines.

Of course, he also crowds out Hillary, but that's OK, given her large leads in the national polls and in all the big states whose primaries are coming up.

If there were a newspaper and television blackout, Hillary would cruise to an easy win, so Bill, by injecting himself into the coverage and hogging it, is accomplishing the same goal.

His tactics now are reminiscent of those he used to black out John Kerry during the lead-up to the 2004 Democratic National Convention.

By scheduling book signings and speeches in Boston, he effectively took the coverage away from the prospective Democratic nominee, a man who would have eclipsed Hillary's presidential ambitions had he won the election.

Ultimately, the Clintons are playing a game of jujitsu with Obama, using his own strength against him.

By challenging Obama for the black vote - by promising to go door to door in South Carolina in minority neighborhoods, for example - Bill is highlighting the question: Will Obama carry the black vote? Of course, he will. He leads, 4 to 1, among African-Americans now.

But by making that the central question, Obama's South Carolina victory will be hailed as proof that he won the African-American vote. Such block voting will trigger the white backlash Sen. Clinton needs to win.

Once whites see blacks voting en masse for a black man, they will figure that it is a racial game and line up for Hillary. Already, she carries white voters by 2 to 1.

The Clintons can well afford to lose South Carolina as long as the election is not seen as a bellwether of how the South will vote but as an indication of how African-Americans will go. It's a small price to pay for the racial polarization they need to win.

So to seize the limelight, take Hillary out of the line of fire, and to call attention to his head-to-head battle with Obama for the loyalty of America's blacks, Bill Clinton is seeking all the coverage he can get, positive, negative or neutral.

Clinton hanging the "1st Black President" tag on himself doesn't make him black and your racist comments show what you get when a bunch of southerns try to run the country.

I have been a physician for 35 years and have worked as an independent practitioner (now) and as a physician paid by the federal government (for 20 years). I have also been a patient with serious illness. Let me make this clear: you cannot and will not have the kind of health care currently available in America if you allow the federal government to collectivize the Medical profession. I for one will not work as a physician for a government which makes the independent practice of medicine a felony as Hillary's 1994 Insanity would have done had not brave Americans stopped her. I have personally witnessed the catastrophic effects a federal government bureaucracy has upon physicians and patients. The waste, the stupidity, the corruption are unbelievable in a federally run system. To experience this for yourself, the next time you or a family member is frighteningly ill, call the Government because with HillaryCare you will be prohibited by law from seeking a Medical opinion without her permission.

The Clinton campaign tactics are useful for one thing and that is to finally do away with the "woe is us against those nasty republicans who brought us Lee Atwater/Karl Rove tactics, Willie Horton and Swift boat ads" arguments. The 1992, 1996 (remember what was done to Bob Dole in the summer of 1996 when he had no money to advertise) general election campaigns and now this primary campaign underscore the politics of personal destruction approach the Clinton's have always taken but never been called to the carpet for by larger media outlets.

Barack Obama is a candidate who cares about the issues that Americans are facing. During the campaigns I have noticed how the Clinton campaign wants to continue to air false adds against Obama, in their hopes of gaining a sizeable consenus of supports to sway votes her way. I want to encourage all voters to not form some biased irrational opinion on one candidate based on false adds, but to vote based on the issues one candidate can bring to change America, and bring our country in a new direction.

On the war in Iraq. If Mccain, thinks that the war in Iraq is going so well, I think that he should agree to have his family sign up to play a integral part in the war in Iraq. How can you be for something that is taking Billions of Dollars out of the country for the war, when thir are kids that are homeless in this country. Schools, that needs to be rebuild. The increase in family going into poverty. More middle class familes are become victims of poverty. More companies are faced to lay off their employees, yet we are constantly outsoercing jobs overseas to support the war in Iraq. Yet the Republicans are talking about change, a change that will definetly not benefit the working class, yes that is the middle class, the majority. The change they were once talking about on the campaign trail is the change Obama launched across the globe. I believe in Obama's message,and I believe that he can take this country in a new direction, where we will once be looked at as a coutry of peace, love, growth, and opportunity.

Interesting comments thus far on Clinton withdrawing negative SC Ads portraying Obama as a person who gives credit to the Republican Party for some vision. As I recall Bill Clinton's initial act as Pres was "Don't Ask Don't Tell". As a die hard New Deal Dem I had a hard time understanding why this was chosen as an inaugural act. Thereafter the Republicans dominated the Congress and Newt came up with the "Contract for America". Bill Clinton, stymied, hired Republican adviser David Gergen and the "Contract for America" was reinvented ala Clinton. Whose vision was it? Let's get beyond the partisan politics.

The Clintons have been attempting to Plame-boat a very fine young African American man by deliberately misrepresenting his statements.

Obama's comments acknowledging the accomplishments of Reagan could also be perceived as an outreach to Republicans that is refreshing in contrast to the acrimony and divisiveness the Clintons are offering. He is already trying to unite the country. If Obama changed a few of his socialist views he would have a great appeal to Republicans since he is a very likeable person.

The belligerannt, divisive, and quarrelsome attitude of Hillary is something we would not look forward to for the next 9 years. Her shabby treatment of Obama is an example of why she is held in such low esteem in many quarters. Bill Clinton has surrendered any semblence of presidential dignity he could salvage from his personal defecits by double teaming Obama.

Hopefully some republicans are already working on articles of impeachment for Hillary just in case the unthinkable happens. If she should ever win, there will be NO honeymoon for Hillary and blood sport will be the continuing order of the day. Is that what we want playing out in the media for the next 9 years? We have 8 years of democratic party political waterboarding of President Bush to bring retribution for.

The Clintons are tactical masterminds. If they ran the ad, THERE WAS A REASON. If they pull an ad THERE IS A REASON. The reason is to run it once or twice... but get everybody talking about it (kinda clever actually, like Apple's infamous 1984 commercial).

Only by running it THEN pulling it will the news cover the ad itself... thus giving them MILLIONS of dollars in free air time. Had they NOT pulled it, it wouldn't be such an issue...

Obama vs. Clinton? That's like the NY Giants vs. the Patriots... sure, it'll be fun to watch, but the Giants don't stand a chance.

Bill Clinton had better get off the subject. In the 1960's Lyndon Johnson took the Democratic Party out of the KKK and never looked back. When he did so, media was 97% concentrated in New Deal liberal hands except for a few newspapers and the only conservative magazine of note was National Review.
With that level of media control, the public could forget that every Jim Crow law ever passed was done so by a Democratic Party controlled legislature. I bet Bill would also like it to stay forgotten that it was a Republican President, Eisenhower, that sent troops to forcibly remove a Democratic Governor of Arkansas from the school house door so black children could go to school.
Now between the Internet, talk radio and new magazine publications 30% of the media is moderate or conservative. If Bill does not drop race as a subject the Jim Crow/KKK history of the Democratic Party could rise to public awareness. If that happens, what is left of FDR's media machine will not be able to put the public to sleep again. Schoolchildren could soon be learning that Andrew Jackson tore apart the Democratic Republican Party and founded the Democratic Party to oppress the Indians and preserve slavery. LBJ deserves a better legacy than that. Shut up Bill!

Both of them are guilty of mud throwing. Obama misquoted the Fairy Tail comment, MLK comment and the vegas lawsuit comment. He ran an ad in Nevada in Spanish saying she was shameless and did not care about latinos. His supporters went on Spanish TV and begged people to vote for him because he was black. They didn't sugar coat it on Spanish TV, they said to vote for him because he was black. They went on to say that blacks face similar problems than latinos. That if Hillary wins it won't matter since she's white. That a black president will be a huge triumph for all minorities.

This is really just politics. It always happens. What matters is the issues. People should just look past the mud throwing and look at where they stand on the issues.

In the end, both will come out looking bad over this, but Obama will come out of this looking worse because everything he said he wouldn't do, he's doing.

In Nevada Hillary got 33% of the Independant vote, Obama got 47%. Hillary can get independants. Maybe not as many as Obama, but she can.

We need more than a good speaker as president who will run the US, essentially the world's largest corporation. The Clintons? They are so corrupt, it's unbelievable. The only way she wins is with incredible amounts of vote fraud. Most Americans find them very distasteful.


Our economy is wobbling a bit. Romney has the expertise to fix it. The rest have not so much as run a lemonade stand.

Impeached-Bill is out campaigning like a high-school staffer...zero class and unprecedented for a former president, demeaning the office once again, telling the "blacks" how much "we" have done for them. At the same time he's trashing Obama, "fairy tale", lying about a candidate who has run a clean, hopeful campaign. Embarassing the country further, Billyboy is getting red-faced with reporters, "shame on you", etc. And for more insult, IF she loses in SC, they'll say , "well, you know, it's just a bunch of blacks". ALL AMERICANS should be outraged!! The Clintons should be repudiated by Democrats, as the party is being severely damaged, of course, they could care less. And don't forget about the crocodile "tears" from her on demand, the fakest thing I've seen in my life, pathetic. Let's send these people home once and for all, they're bad news for the country, and only in it for themselves. They've got to go.

Both sides have been slinging mud and twisting each others words. If Sen. Obama can't handle a Democratic primary, how will he handle the Republican attacks if he gets the nomination?

Whoever wins the Democratic nomination I am willing to support them. They will be much better than the Republican nominee. I refuse to buy into the Republican smears that caricatured the Clintons during the 199o'a. If they were as bad as people made them out to be, she would not have carried New York with 67% of the vote.

Has any of you vilifying HRC been wrongly accused of anything? Sen. Obama was correct when he said that no one one the stage hands were perfectly clean. This is politics.

Incidentally, in case some folks did not know the Clintons raised funds and campaigned for Sen. Obama during his senate bid.

Obama seems like he really wants to serve his country (whether you agree with his ideas or not), the Clinton's only want POWER. The Clintons want Obama to win in SC so they can try and scare white democrats. If ya'll fall for that then I guess you really are racist and will get the president you deserve.

Having meticulously planned their coveted return to the White House for several years now, the Clintons will certainly not exit the scene with grace or dignity. This is the political duo that honed "The Politics Of Personal Destruction" into an artform; and, most certainly will not tolerate, who is in their mind, the "upstart Obama" to derail Hillary's pre-choreographed coronation.
With regards Slick's comments on Obama's Iraq record; and, the draft dodger's false accusation of flip flopping on the Iraq issue against Obama: It was actually Hillary who was the serial flip-flopper on this issue. Obama to his credit, as a matter of conscience, refused to deny American troops the funding for the bullets and equipment that they required to survive in ongoing combat. Hillary, on the other hand, with no such compelling principles, was one of only two U.S. Senators who voted to deny funding for essential equipments for our troops who they had "previously" voted to commit to lethal combat. A despicable breach of trust with the young men and women laying their lives on the line in defense of our Nation. Obama made the classical rookie error of not responding to Slick's false accusation, which he could have easily turned to Hillary's well deserved detriment
Barrack and his supporters best be prepared for the "Political Lynching" that will rival anything previously witnessed in Presidential politics. Further, the Clinton's methodical playing of the "Race Card" will promote a permanent schism between the Black and Hispanic communities. Despicable.
Slick and Hilla-the-Hun, the Perpetual Victim, have repeatedly demonstrated a vicious mud-slinger demeanor that is unprecedented whenever their political dynasty has been threatened in the past. Just ask anyone of their innumerable victims.

At one of Bill Clinton's appearances in SC on Wednesday, an elderly black man stood up and said "black people are voting for Obama because he's black. But he can't win and he will make sure the Republicans win in November." Clinton showed "concern" while a few others nodded.

After it was over, reporters tried to get the man's name. He refused to identify himself and left with his BODYGUARD! Now, tell me.

OBAMA has the BEST ECONOMIC STIMULUS PLAN!

Washington Post's Ruth Marcus graded the candidates on their economic stimulus plans...

Barack Obama: A-minus. I criticized his previous tax plan, but Obama is at the head of the class with an intelligently designed, $120 billion stimulus plan. He would speed a $250 tax credit to most workers, followed by another $250, triggered automatically, if the economy continues on its sour path. Obama would direct a similar rebate to low- and middle-income seniors, who are also apt to spend and could get checks quickly. One demerit: Obama omits any increase in food stamp benefits, which Moody's estimates would have the greatest bang for the buck, $1.73 for every dollar spent.

JakkeD >>>ONE difference would be that Romney actually ran a State -- keep in mind that I voted for Obama in the primary -- if the economy keeps going down, I think a businessman like Romney would be much better for us in the Oval Office than a former First Lady, don't you?

I think a Republican president without honesty or integrity or substance is even worse than a Democratic one, no question. (See 2001-2008, inclusive.) Romney is a shameless panderer who, like Hillary, will do anything to get elected. They're definitely two peas in a pod.

As I said in another thread, I'm a Dem who'll be withholding my vote if Hillary is nominated (or actively casting a vote for McCain if he becomes the GOP nominee; character counts.) The only way I'd vote for Hillary is if Romney gets the nod, since if you're going to have to choose between two identically sleazy candidates, you might as well vote for the one who has the (D) after their name.

Bottom Line:

Like all of you. I know that health care is the most critical, and important issue facing the American people. Now, and in the coming elections. And like the vast majority of the American people, I want HR 676 (Medicare For All) passed into law NOW! "Single payer, Tax Supported, Not For Profit, True Universal Health Care" free for all as a right. Like every other developed country in the world has. See: http://www.house.gov/conyers/news_hr676.htm

"HR 676:
For church goers: less money to insur. companies and more to the church- lots more.
Srs on Medicare: save way over $100/wk. Because no more medigap, long term care & dental insur. needed. No more drug bills."

But if we the American people fail to bring enough pressure on our current politicians to get HR 676 passed into law before the elections. We will have to identify, and replace all the politicians standing in the way of passage of HR 676. And, I think the best first place to start is with the politicians that blocked the bipartisan SCHIP bills for the kids. Passed by congress twice.

But what about the President. It was Bush after all that blocked the bipartisan SCHIP bill passed by congress to assure more health coverage for Americas kids. So which of the presidential hopefuls do I think will be most supportive of implementing the demand of the majority of the American people to have HR 676 (Medicare For All) passed into law immediately!

We have some very fine presidential candidates who would make good presidents. But none of the top Presidential candidates directly support HR 676, the only true Universal Health Care plan. So I am supporting Hillary Clinton. She is the only top candidate that has ever actually fought for universal health care before.

I have enormous admiration, and respect for Hillary Clinton. She fought a pitched battle against overwhelming odds back in 1993. To prevent this disastrous health care crisis that is now devastating the American people, and America. She fought so hard for the American people that she risk almost completely destroying her husbands presidency. I haven't forgotten her heroic effort. If any Presidential hopeful for universal health care deserves my support, it's her.

Also, if we the American people fail to bring enough pressure on our government to give us HR 676 which we all so desperately need NOW! Then we will need the most skilled politician we can get on our side to broker the best health care plan for the American people that we can get. Though it will be less than we need, and less than we deserve. The politician I think to best do this is Hillary Clinton. The Clinton's are probably the most skilled politicians in American history.

The insurance industry, and medical industry that has been ripping you off, and killing you has given Hillary Clinton so much money because they fear her. They have also given Barack Obama so much money because they fear Hillary Clinton. They think they can manipulate Barack Obama against the best interest of the American people better than they can manipulate Hillary Clinton. There is no race issue with Hillary Clinton. The Clinton's are the poster family for how African Americans want white people to be towards African Americans.

As always, African Americans are suffering, and dieing in this health care crisis at a much higher rate than any other group in America. The last time there was any significant drop in the African American death rate was when Bill Clinton was president.

My fellow Americans, you are dieing needlessly at an astounding rate. In higher numbers than any other people in the developed world. Rich, and poor a like. Insured, and uninsured. Men, women, children, and babies. And we the American people must stop it. And fix it NOW! Keep Fighting!!! Never! give up hope. There are millions of lives at stake. Bless you all...

ONE difference would be that Romney actually ran a State -- keep in mind that I voted for Obama in the primary -- if the economy keeps going down, I think a businessman like Romney would be much better for us in the Oval Office than a former First Lady, don't you?

I wish the Clinton campaign wouldn't back down on this ad. It's one more example of the double standard that requires Hillary to apologize and play nice but lets Obama misconstrue her record and impugn her character. Sure, the ad makes voters have to go listen to what Obama actually meant and said, but there's nothing wrong with that, and there's nothing inherently false in the ad. I listened to Obama's comments and his (false) implication that Bill Clinton did nothing for the U.S. and should be lumped in with Richard Nixon. I wasn't impressed with Obama.

Clinton claims she wants it to about the issues. Well, then hopefully she will allow it to be about issues, and not the distortion of her competitors' stance on the issues.
I congratulate them for taking the ad off. It would be nice to have a verbal repudiation of it.

Please, little boy blue Obama started the attacks and pulled the race card and now whines when it backfires on him. At the debate he looked like the junior Senator that he is and looked like he was going to cry and throw a hissy fit. Not a leader in the least. Hey, Obama, if you cannot take the heat get out of the kitchen. By the way I listened to the whole tape and watched the words of praise come out of his mouth for the republicans in which he said, "They transcended politics and were the party of ideas over the last ten to fifteen years and even more so than President Clinton." Spin it any way you want, just like his repeated votes to fund the war, after joining the senate, but intelligent voters competent enough to check the facts for themselves will not be fooled by you or your seragates in the media.

The big wigs in the DNC are mad... She is over...

But Jake, you're a Romney supporter, and Romney is just Slick Hilly in male drag. No character, no honesty, and no substance--say anything, do anything and espouse any side of a position to win. What's the difference?

Maybe this is a sign that the Clinton's are finally understanding they've gone way too far. Too bad it took the weight of party leaders and radio folks like Ed Schultz to get that message through to them. When they thought they were behind for a couple of days in New Hampshire they went nuclear and haven't stopped since. If this is the kind of administration she promises, I want no part of it. We have one of those already.

To ALL Democrats:

Please join my pledge to NOT vote for Hillary Clinton even if she gets the nomination.

Let's keep things as clean as possible. That means all three candidates. McCain has the potential to take independents and some disgruntled democrats in the general election if this gets any uglier. Many people I have spoken to agree.

By the way,

DON'T BELIEVE THE CLINTONS, WHEN THEY SAY THEY "EXPECT HER TO LOSE" IN SC!

It's the same expectations game they played in NH.

Hillary was 25 points ahead of Obama just like 2 months ago.
No one should be surprised if she wins. Her campaign knows damn well that she has a good chance of winning SC.

Yay!

The American people are catching on to the Clintons' dirty politicking, and rejecting it. No doubt they had to pull it because of the backlash.

The fact that HRC had to pull the ad is evidence of a backlash against her Rovian tactics.
