Clinton Ads: Three for Texas and Ohio

Peter Hauck

Hillary Clinton is airing new ads in Ohio and Texas.

"Corporate special interests" bad. Middle-class tax breaks good.

A folksy narrator says "In Texas, when there's work to be done, talk doesn't cut it."

Former Ohio Senator John Glenn says Hillary fights for "working people."

I loved how she slipped in "aid and comfort" to the lobbyists. Could this have been an attempt to throw into the back of the ignorant voter's mind, a doubt about Sen. Obama's ability to protect our country? Associating some possible deficiency he might possess as President, which would indirectly aid and lend comfort to an enemy of the US.

And she is one to call, into a negative light, the aiding and comforting of the enemy lobbyist, when we all can see the wonderful levels of wealth both her and her husband have created through their loyalty to the lobbyists teat.

She is a shameless and crass individual, filled with feelings of self-entitlement, which now due to her miserably run campaign (read: top-down control), makes her all the more ugly, and the true Party destroying person we have come to see and despise.

The moment of the debate

The Clinton campaign is calling Hillary's response to "name a challenging moment of her life" during the primary debate in Austin, Texas on Tuesday as "The moment of the debate." In fact, the Hillary campaign is actively planning on running an advertising blitz starting today that features this "moment."

The 60 second spot called "Resolved" shows much of Clinton's final moment at Thursday's debate during which she said, "You know the hits I've taken are nothing compared to what goes on every single day in the lives of people across our country."
What the ad does not show, and the media outlets have failed to cover is that, this "moment" has occurred before. In fact, it is taken word-for-word from a speech by President Bill Clinton in 1992.

While CNN covered this story in brief, and glossed over showing actual video of the event, this is 2008 and we have youtube. In this must see video, the youtube user "canttrussit" has put together a remarkable clip.

Please watch this video. Please pass it on.

When Bill played the bad copy and Hillary, the good cop, the tactic failed. A desperate Hillary can no longer cry effectively as she already cried twice, once before NH primary and another just before Super Tuesday.

Her final option is to play the bad copy and started to appear 'visibly angry against Obama', which used to be Bill's job.

Hillary needs to admit that the Clintons traded the Healthcare Reform Bill for NAFTA, which is more important to them.
Bill blamed its failure on the Republicans, but he was the president with a Dem Congress. It was all on you, Hillary and Bill!

I like Obama's quick apology for his mistakes. He was brought up properly by his mother and grandparents.

First of all, to you who called Hillary "crass"... Can you define that word? And how does it then apply to her? Are you one of those people who just likes rhetoric with no substance? If that's the case, the Obama is your person! Personally, I'd rather have the economy we had under Bill and the reputation we had around the world - earned with much planning, intelligence and politcal know-how - than to have a person in office with few connections, and a reputation of many words and few details. Obama has done a fine job of making this about "race" by being sure NOT to mention to his supporters to leave "race" out of it. By doing that, he is allowing people to make interpretations of their own, making any statement someone who is against Obama sound like they are racist! Last time I checked, saying that someone's campaign is like a fairy tale is NOT racist - but, gosh, they made it so by opening saying "RACE, RACE, RACE"! If they'd said that about Hillary, what could we have said - it was about gender? WOW! How horrible that would be. Obama is dividing out country, NOT uniting it and it scares me to death! GO HILLARY!

this is a race election.if obama wins and picks a black v.p.that will be the end of white and black as we see politics now .i would say that a big percentage of blacks are votingblack because obama is black so that makes race a big issue,

I might have been inclined to agree with the Clinton camapign about her closing remarks during Thursday nights debate being her "strongest moment," and "her finest of the campaign." Unfortunately, her failure to follow up on those remarks and reverting to behavior that makes a complete shambles of what she had to say only serves to prove just how CONTRIVED and insincere "the moment" really was.

Howard Wolfson, with his e-mail to the TV networks proclaiming Hillary's words that show her "softer side" and Bill Clinton's e-mail that went out asking for $1.3 MILLION specifically to air "the moment" in TV ads in Texas and Ohio points to the fact that the touching, "softer side" of Hillary was nothing but a prop - well rehearsed and not a bad job of presentation, but a worthless prop nonetheless.

I trust that voters in Ohio and Texas will view this ad side by side with Hillary's attack ads and come to the only logical conclusion an intelligent voter could be left with when considering the whole package. Hillary's "moment" is nothing but 10 pounds of cown manure stuffed into a 5 pound sack.

Hillary Rodham Clinton has been totally inconsistent throughout this campaign. Just in the last half week, she has alternated between sensitive and caring to ranting and raving to this annoying, sing-song mocker. The constant mood/behavior swings, whether part of the plan or just "Hillary being Hillary" indicate a certain instability and/or immaturity that leaves much to doubt about a candidate for the Presidency.
