Clinton Challenges Obama's Readiness

By Howard Kurtz
The Ad: It's the toughest job in the world. You need to be ready for anything -- especially now, with two wars, oil prices skyrocketing and an economy in crisis. Harry Truman said it best -- if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Who do you think has what it takes?

Analysis: Osama bin Laden has made his first appearance in a Democratic primary ad.

While Hillary Clinton's commercial never mentions Barack Obama, it picks up on the theme of her now-famous 3 a.m. phone ad -- that the world is a dangerous place and her opponent is untested.

The images race from the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor bombing, Cuban missile crisis and long gas lines to a shot of the al-Qaeda leader, followed by New Orleans under water. The final question -- who "has what it takes" -- is obviously intended to sow doubts about a rival who was an Illinois state legislator three years ago.

The ad's weakness is that some voters may view Clinton, who played no direct role in national security or crisis management as first lady, as not much more experienced than Obama. She also voted to authorize the Iraq war, which many critics say has diverted U.S. efforts against bin Laden. And an ad invoking the world's most notorious terrorist may be viewed as carrying a whiff of desperation. An Obama spokesman said the Clinton camp, by choosing to "invoke bin Laden to score political points," is practicing "the politics of fear" in the mold of President Bush.

By unveiling the ad today, with little opportunity for paid airtime before tomorrow's Pennsylvania primary, Clinton is banking on media coverage to carry her message. She also needs the free coverage because Obama has been outspending her on the Pennsylvania airwaves by as much as 3 to 1.

Your words "Take a look at the friends he(Obama) keeps".

*******************


Most would agree, in order to keep the playing field even, I guess we should take a look at the friends and associates his opponent keeps. Most of whom have criminal records. Some are still serving time.

Throwing stones is not the answer. They both have baggage. But if that's the way you want to play, then John McCain wins. it's that simple.

So, go ahead and get the anger and hatred out of your system and please consider doing the math.

"I, uh, err, uhh, I..". Great speaker. All of the Obama sheep are hilarious. You take this guy for his word, yet he has absolutely no experience to back up what he is saying. He is nothing more than a smooth talking car salesman..about to sell you all a lemon. His Socialist & Carter-like pacifism will be horrible for the U.S. Take a look at the friends he keeps..Wright, Ayers, Meeks, and surely more to find out about. He's a pompous, inexperienced unknown who is "Just Words". http://www.hellnobama.com

Speaking of Senator Clinton's latest ad, she had her leadership moment and she had her red phone moment. She failed on every account.

She had ample opportunity to rise above the crowd and show separation and provide leadership when it came time to vote on invading Iraq. She elected to join in the stampede racing into the black hole of Iraq from which we cannot now escape. In voting as she did, she showed that she had no vision, no foresight and no ability to discern consequences of her actions. Further, in not reading the Intelligence Estimates on Iraq for herself before she voted, she showed lazy sloppy indifference to the quality of her work at such a critical time. Additionally,she failed to stand up to Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld. If she couldn't stand up to these light weights in her own back yard, just how is she going to command respect on the internatinal front?
Seemingly, she just wants a promotion and a pay raise for all her failures. What message would that send to our youth?

I would like to inject a sense of realism into a passionate and often ugly debate that rages here on Wapo blog boards on a daily basis. Truth is truth, and math does not lie. In order for Hillary to win the nomination she MUST win ALL the remaining 10 states by a margin of at least 12-14 percentage points (62-64%) and then she must win 64% of the superdelegates. All this talk back and forth cannot change the math. Hillary's efforts to get the nomination will be an exhaustive uphill battle. Before all you Hillary folks start to jump down my throat you should know I LOVE Hillary. I am constantly pleading for unity within the Dem party. I do not have a bias. What I have is a calculator, and a willingness to add things up the way they are, not the way I want them to be. A CLOSE win in PA HURTS Hillary in more ways than one. First off it leaves only 9 contests to cut the margin. A 14% point win isnt mearely one of expectation but more of necessity. Use this delegate calculator below and do the math yourself. Adjust the slider to 62-64% wins from here on out and see what you get. The magic number of delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination is 2,025 out of 4,049 total number of delegates. If The race stays remotely the same as it is now, Hillary will be in the hole by 20% in superdelegates, plus she would need the 51% margin of those superdelegates for victory. That means Hillary would need 71% of all the superdelegates. As I stated, big big wins are needed in ALL 10 contests from here on out. Otherwise she cannot catch him with the superdelegates. Again crunch the numbers with the delegate calculator below.
The delegate count used is the same as MSNBC and CNN

All I can see is Four (4) more years of Republicans!

Both democractic candidates have supporters that say they will not vote for the other democrat.... that means (4) more years for the "Uncle Dick" or at least the people that brought you, wars on several fronts/gas prices going through the roof and a recession being masked at the moment!

My thought is what would have 2+Trillion dollars done for health/jobs/education/environment just to name a few!

Yes America, you are being had again, so get your s... together and support whoever is your democractic representative!

All the world hears is, War,war and more war, plus Al-Qaeda, Al-Qaeda,Al-Qaeda. Black,White mistrust. It's really so very sad. What a Country you should have been. Such loyal people, but a corrupt government with no end in sight.
What about your American children?
This was a needless war and is Americas curse. Yet you talk about anther one with Iran. You will never see great change in your Country, and perhaps it's non of our business to say this truth, but again, your screwed blue and tattooed.
You ask for debates, but have not had one worth the time of day to watch. Without war, you are dammed for you cannot take care of your own young men and women who might come back home looking for jobs and medical help. Health care and jobs are never really addressed by anyone. Veterans abuse never mentioned. The horrors of Katrina never mentioned. Well, do not worry about health care or jobs, nor religion, it does not really matter.
Same old will continue. May some God Protect your people. Vote for a Black man for change. Give your Country a chance to become the Great America of the past. Give the younger generations of Americans a future.

WRITE DNC AND DEMAND OBAMA DROP OUT OF RACE!
See why CNN does not have a clue about Obama-NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York judge ordered CNN reporter Richard Quest to undergo six months of counseling on Friday after Quest was arrested in Central Park for possession of a controlled substance, his lawyer said.

THE MEDIA LIKE AP-CNN AND MSNBC ARE SELLING OUT AMERICANS
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/tom-blumer/2008/04/05/ap-covers-obama-avoiding-churchs-pastors-essence
Associated Press Playing defense for Obama Karen Hawkins and Christopher Wills of the Associated Press quilty of Wright-wash, Hawkins and Wills avoid any mention of the Black Liberation Theology that forms foundation belief system of Trinity United Church. AP pair purposely avoided any mention of inflammatory items in weekly bulletin articles published by the Church.

Nowhere in the story was any mention of the Church's belief system, which was outlined by McClatchy's Margaret Tavel on Mar 20.

Obamas church pushes controversial doctrines. Jesus is black. Merging Marxism with Christian Gospel may show the way to a better tomorrow. The white church in America is the Antichrist because it supported slavery and segregation. Those are some doctrines that animate the theology at the core of Obamas church.

Wright said basis for Trinitys philosophies the work of James Cone, founder black liberation theology movement out of the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. Particularly influential was Cones book, Black Theology & Black Power. Cone wrote that the U.S. was a white racist nation and the white church was the Antichrist for having supported slavery and segregation.

TCC'S Pastors Page section, the Rev. Wright gave two pages to Hamas TERRORIST MOUSA ABU MARZOOK. The column originally appeared in the Los Angeles Times, which came under heavy criticism for running it. Among Marzook's many whoppers: A number of political parties today control blocs in the Israeli Knesset, while advocating for the expulsion of Arab citizens from Israel and the rest of Palestine, envisioning a single Jewish state from the Jordan to the sea. CAMERA.org wrote at the time that "that no Israeli parties in government advocate the 'expulsion' of Arabs; one calls for voluntary transfer."

TCC Pastor's Page section, written by TERRORIST SYMPATHIZER AIL BAGHDADI. Among other things, Baghdadi wrote I must tell you that Israel was the closest ally to the White Supremacists of South Africa. In fact, South Africa allowed Israel to test its nuclear weapons in the ocean off South Africa. The Israelis were given a blank check: they could test whenever they desired and did not even have to ask permission. Both worked on an ethnic bomb that kills Blacks and Arabs. The KKK, on its worst day, never accused the ethnic groups it hated of attempting to concoct a "white bomb. Rev. Wright not only allowed these hate-filled diatribes to appear in TUCCs bulletins but supports as does Obama.


Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden would be praying for an Obama victory because it would help the militants win in Iraq. Article by Citizen Wells 3/08,
Obama has a dual citizenship with Kenya. Obama is an anti-Israel, pro-pan-Arabian Islamic-socialist who has ties to Marxist Libyan President Muamar al Gadaffi, and a Syrian tycoon, Antoin Rezko, Saudi Arabian Scheiks and Rezko's "close friend" Nadhami Auchi, the one who gave Obama fundraiser money (and helped to buy his mansion): Iraqi billionaire, global arms dealer, Nadhmi Auchi, was Baathist best friends with Saddam Hussein, and the main financial backer (from funds stolen from Oil for Food Program0 for Saddam's - Iraqi -Saudi oil pipeline, and who stood trial with Saddam Hussein in 1959 for conspiring to assassinate Iraqi President Qasim.

Also marxist Nicaragian President Daniel Ortega is on the front line supporting Obama for the revolution of changes and then there is hard core anti-Israel, pro-Palestine PLO Enforcer Rashid Khalid, (Obama was on Kalidi's Woods Fund. Obama was a memb er of the Woods Fund with communist domestic terrorist Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground who bombed the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol among other things and their organization raised money for anti-Israel programs, and also AAAN, for Arabs and then there is especially Kenya - where in August 2007, Obama went to Kenya to support his E. Germany communist educated cousin Raila Odinga for Kenyan Presidential election, who claims coincidentally to also be a Christian who signed NAMLEF and other pacts wutg radical muslims who set churches filled with Christians on fire, and macheted them in the streets, causing a political and religious mini-civil war over the MUO.

all of Obama's mentors, buddies, political affiliations, organizational memberships and all of his hard core militant muslim family members, like his brother Abongo (Roy" Odinga who hates America, and their communist grandfather who ran with Russia and hated America, not to mention his socialist connection to his profound childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party, CPUSA, and Obama's endorsement by the Black Panthers. Obama titled his book "Audacity of Hope," after Pastor Wright's sermon about the need to destroy capitalism and the middle-class at the hands of the rich white people and the west.

Memories of Obama's recent racial stereotype of the 'typical White person' are still fresh. Add to this now his view of the 'typical small town person.' Obama is quoted as disparaging residents of small towns in Pennsylvania as being "like a lot of small towns in the Midwest" where "it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

Obama is unapologetic, even dissing of voters in Florida and Michigan one has to wonder what groups of Americans he really respects?

Racist wife, Michelle, saying she was proud of America "for the first time" only because of her husband's presidential run.

Obama explained he doesn't wear an American flag lapel pin or hold his hands to his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance because it is a substitute for patriotism,

Obama confirms his own moral obliviousness and he seems to have disdain for those who are troubled by his own unwillingness to break with The Great White hater Rev Wright

Rev Wright says you don't have to wait for the afterlife for the mansion on the hilltop, he's right! To shut him up Trinity United Church of Christ is building Rev. Wright a $1 mil house on a lot that was purchased for $345,000. According to federal income tax return Obama gave $222,500

Wright continues his Obama supported attacks on non-blacks Wright states Jesus death on the cross was a public lynching Italian style.

Obamas senate record shows he infact did support the war voted against bringing America's troops home, voted for war appropriations giving our money to Halliburton and Blackwater, voted with Bush/Chaney latest bit of posturing S433 to suspend any troop withdrawal, if not suspended, keeps the troops in Iraq for a long time to come.

Washington Post- Fact Check- Senator Obama CAUGHT LYING about Kennedy Role in Helping His Father Contrary to Obama's claims in speeches Kennedy family did not.

Chicago Daily Herald- Obama refers to himself as 'a constitutional law professor on the campaign trail. TRUTH: He never held any such title!

The Democratic candidate Obama and his wife earned $4.2 million last year -- four times as much as they had in 2006. Made $240,370 in charitable contributions. Their largest gifts were to the United Negro College Fund ($50,000), the international relief organization CARE ($35,000) and Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago ($26,270). The Obamas contributed just $6 in 2007 to the federal fund that provides public financing for presidential campaigns in exchange for limits on spending. Not so struggling middle class and Michelle says they struggle to pay for piano lessons.

THE OBAMA CHANGE AGENT! LAUGHABLE!!!

Obama said he goofed on votes angered fellow Democrats in the Senate when he voted to strip millions of dollars from a child welfare office on Chicago's West Side. But Obama had a ready explanation: He goofed!
Also announced he had fumbled an election-reform vote the day before, on a measure that passed 51 to 6. The next day, he acknowledged voting "present" on a key telecommunications vote. He stood on March 11, 1999, to take back his vote against legislation to end good-behavior credits for certain felons in county jails. "I pressed the wrong button on that," he said. Obama was the lone dissenter on Feb. 24, 2000, against 57 yeas for a ban on human cloning. "I pressed the wrong button by accident," he said.

But two of Obama's bumbles came on more-sensitive topics, he backed legislation to permit riverboat casinos to operate even when the boats were dockside.

The measure, pushed by the gambling industry and fought by church groups whose support Obama was seeking, passed with two "yeas" to spare -- including Obama's. Moments after its passage he rose to say, explaining that he had mistakenly voted for it.

Obama would later develop a reputation as a critic of the gambling industry, and he voted against a similar measure two years later. But he was clearly confused about how to handle the issue at the time of his first vote, telling a church group that he was "undecided" about whether he backed an expansion of riverboat gambling. And, months earlier, he had voted in favor of a version of the bill.

Obama's vote sparked a confrontation after he joined Republicans to block Democrats trying to override a veto by GOP Gov. George Ryan of a $2-million allotment for the west Chicago child welfare office. being responsible," said Sen. Rickey Hendon, accusing Obama of voting to close the child welfare office.Obama replied "I understand Sen. Hendon's anger, I was not aware that I had voted no on that piece of legislation.

He voted against requiring medical care for aborted fetuses who survive. Abortion opponents see Obama's vote on medical care for aborted fetuses as a refusal to protect the helpless. Some have even accused him of supporting infanticide.
Striking similarities between Barack Obama's words and those of Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick during his 2006 election campaign have raised eyebrows and attracted traffic on YouTube. The stump speech Barack Obama has been giving aimed at convincing voters that his campaign is not just about lofty rhetoric -- is from Patrick, Obama's campaign acknowledged over the weekend.

People, please remember that the republican haven't start exposing Obama's past, yet. But once Obama gets the nomination they'll turn every stones in the whole world. So that, in the general election, Obama would be very luck if he wins the single state of Hawaii.

"Who do you think has what it takes?"

I choose Obama with his calm, cool and collected temperament over an opponent who miss-labels his own bellicose,impetuous behavior "passion," and another who voted to authorize the war on Iraq, voted to give Bush and the neo-cons license to attack Iran, and recklessly warns of massive retaliation on an adversary without providing any context for her warning.

Posted by: FirstMouse | April 21, 2008 10:30 PM

Hillary's latest ad is stolen right out of Carl Rove's playbook for Bush's 2004 reelection campaign. When you have lost the ability to appeal to the intelligence of the American people, appeal to their fears. It may have worked in 04 but not in 08!

I am afraid that you and your misguided advisors have just hammered the final nail in the coffin of a tragically failed campaign.

I would certainly want to know that the person in charge of the country is capable of handling the tough situation. I can see either Clinton or McCain in that role. Obama whines when reporter asks him a question he doesn't like; what's he going to do in the crisis?

Posted by: Common Sense | April 21, 2008 7:04 PM

To Jenn - it's racist crap like your posts that will keep this Obama supporter home on election day if Hillary somehow manges to steal the nomination from him. Apparently you haven't researched the candidates well enough to know that Barack Obama is not, and never has been, a muslim. I realize that doesn't fit into your racist narrative, but unfortunately, for you - it is the truth!

No "average"American is going to get anything but an even GREATer DEPRESSION from the next president.

Where are the jobs going to be when the troops do come back to their little towns? Will they be bitter? Or will they pretend to be resilient Americans?

Why can't we ship our Government overseas and bring the jobs back?

This is Hillary Clinton: Whitewater, Travelgate, Monica Lewinsky and impeachment, renting out the Lincoln bedroom, the loss of the Rose Law Firm billing records for nearly 2 years until they were miraculously found in the White House living quarters, removing files from Vince Foster's office following his suicide and before investigators could get there. Her refusal to release her earmark requests from her time in the Senate, as well as her Clinton library donors. Her sell out apology to the African American community (for her campaigns racist comments) which came days too late. Her decline to return $170,000 in campaign contributions from individuals at International Profit Associates, or IPA accused of widespread sexual harassment, and whose CEO is a disbarred lawyer with a criminal record. Lets not forget her campaign eventually returned some $850,000 to Hong Kong businessman Norman Hsu who was found to be a fugitive in a 15-year old theft case. He was indicted for fraud related to his campaign contributions in 2007. Her failed inclusion and diplomacy with congress on her once universal health care bid. Her subsequent surrender and alignment to the health care industry (second largest recipient in the Senate of health care industry contributions). Her disguise on NAFTA and all free trade agreements. Her conscious vote for war in Iraq. Her blatant flip flop on Florida and Michigan. Her repetitive lies about sniper fire in Bosnia. Her exaggerated foreign policy experience. Her dealing the race card better than Republicans. Clinton photo and prayer breakfast with Rev Wright. Clinton photo with Rezko. Her failure to get the endorsement of close friend Bill Richardson. Her miserable failure to manage her own campaign (and husband). Her charlatan flip flop on pledged delegates and superdelegates by encouraging party elite to vote against the will of the people - "I believe strongly that in a democracy, we should respect the will of the people and to me, that means it's time to do away with the Electoral College and move to the popular election of our president." - Hillary Clinton in 2000

If America is attacked by terrorists using an atomic bomb, for example, what Clinton would do is what any other President would do. She would use better qualified people to do the work domestically and in foreign service. Every President has experienced professionals in state craft, military and intelligence gathering specialties.

Hey JackSmith:
Your claim that Bill Clinton went to war and didn't lose a life is totally ridiculous. Go look up major events from 1993.

And to give credit to Clinton for the growth of the Internet economy should also require that you give him credit for the market "correction" that followed. Oh and you are probably one that loved the term .. the "greed of the 80s". That decade has nothing on the greed of the 90s.

You have exposed yourself as a dope -- oh and you might -- err scratch that -- you are an idiot.

It is astonishing that any Democrat, even a Hillary supporter, would not be repulsed by a commercial that uses images of Osama bin Laden, Castro, and Pearl Harbor to incite fear in voters.

Hillary's ad is as guilty of right wing fear-mongering as any Republican ad that I have ever seen. She seems to have completely forgotten which side she is supposed to be on.

You Hillary supporters are cracking me up. Wake up: she has NO chance of winning enough delegate. The margins that she must gain on Obama in the rest of the races are impossible.

At this point in the game with no way possible to win, it's a sick joke and she is damaging the Clinton name. Obama and his advisors were smarter, more organized, and played like pros instead of scared Republicans.

The question is: what happens to the Clintons after everyone else finally realizes she can't win and moves over to Obama's line?

Yes, Senator Clinton knows she cannot win and yet many voters as well as the media has bought her lies that she is close to winning and so she goes on and on and on...

She doesn't want Senator Obama to win and is trying to make sure he won't be able to win the general election so that she can re-apply for the job in 2012 as John McCain probably won't run or win...

MY FELLOW "BITTER", STUPID, WORKING CLASS PEOPLE :-)

If you think like Barack Obama, that WORKING CLASS PEOPLE are just a bunch of "BITTER"!, STUPID, PEASANTS, Cash COWS!, and CANNON FODDER. :-(

You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you think Barack Obama with little or no experience would be better than Hillary Clinton with 35 years experience.

You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you think that Obama with no experience can fix an economy on the verge of collapse better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) led the greatest economic expansion, and prosperity in American history.

You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you think that Obama with no experience fighting for universal health care can get it for you better than Hillary Clinton. Who anticipated this current health care crisis back in 1993, and fought a pitched battle against overwhelming odds to get universal health care for all the American people.

You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you think that Obama with no experience can manage, and get us out of two wars better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) went to war only when he was convinced that he absolutely had to. Then completed the mission in record time against a nuclear power. AND DID NOT LOSE THE LIFE OF A SINGLE AMERICAN SOLDIER. NOT ONE!

You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you think that Obama with no experience saving the environment is better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) left office with the greatest amount of environmental cleanup, and protections in American history.

You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you think that Obama with little or no education experience is better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) made higher education affordable for every American. And created higher job demand and starting salary's than they had ever been before or since.

You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you think that Obama with no experience will be better than Hillary Clinton who spent 8 years at the right hand of President Bill Clinton. Who is already on record as one of the greatest Presidents in American history.

You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you think that you can change the way Washington works with pretty speeches from Obama, rather than with the experience, and political expertise of two master politicians ON YOUR SIDE like Hillary and Bill Clinton..

You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you think all those Republicans voting for Obama in the Democratic primaries, and caucuses are doing so because they think he is a stronger Democratic candidate than Hillary Clinton. :-)

Best regards

jacksmith... Working Class :-)

p.s. You Might Be An Idiot! :-)

If you don't know that the huge amounts of money funding the Obama campaign to try and defeat Hillary Clinton is coming in from the insurance, and medical industry, that has been ripping you off, and killing you and your children. And denying you, and your loved ones the life saving medical care you needed. All just so they can make more huge immoral profits for them-selves off of your suffering...

You see, back in 1993 Hillary Clinton had the audacity, and nerve to try and get quality, affordable universal health care for everyone to prevent the suffering and needless deaths of hundreds of thousands of you each year. :-)

Approx. 100,000 of you die each year from medical accidents from a rush to profit by the insurance, and medical industry. Another 120,000 of you die each year from treatable illness that people in other developed countries don't die from. And I could go on, and on...

Awesome ad. Whoever wins the White House in November faces enormous challenges and will need everybody's support. Clinton is the best candidate for the job by far - her positions on these issues are more comprehensive and clearly articulated than Obama's - she kicked his butt in the debates on policy issues every time. I'm behind her 100% because I think she cares about a much broader spectrum of Americans and American problems than does Obama. I admire her campaign so far, and I would support her all the way.

Once again the MSM are recruited to carry the water for HRC! By overly reporting this ad--like her emotional moment before NH and her 3 a.m. ad before TX and OH--the media will make sure some part of her message will dominate the air waves for the next 24 hours. She need only broadcast this commercial once and it will be all over cable news ad nauseum. It sucks, but it also works (unfortunately). And tonight she's going on Larry King and Keith Olberman.

That's the best."
