More Ads From Clinton, Obama

A new day, and new ads from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

"Enough" is Obama's latest message, airing in Wisconsin. The 30-second spot has aired before in other states.

"Ordinary people all across the country are struggling from paycheck to paycheck. If the plant moves to China, and you've been working there for 20, 30 years, and suddenly you have the rug pulled out from under you, and you don't have health care, and you don't have a pension, you're on your own. We've got to stop giving tax breaks to companies that are moving overseas, and give those tax breaks to companies investing in the United States of America. Enough is enough."

Clinton is airing "Giving Voice to Our Soldiers" in Texas.

"For every soldier who served so bravely over there, but is ignored over here, she hears you. For every National Guard and reservist who leaves their family behind, she hears you. That's why Hillary Clinton reached across the aisle to expand access to health care for the National Guard, and is pushing to protect the bonuses of wounded soldiers. She'll never stop fighting for those who fight for us, and give voice to those who have none."

Washington post, please ask a question to Mrs.Clinton.

Mr.Clinton has defamed and brought shame to the American presidency with his monica lewinsky controversy. He not only brought shame to presidency but also to democratic party. Why should american people give another oppurtunity to clinton family ?

I'm glad to see Sen. Clinton getting ads on the air that not only show her positions but question Obama's record vs. his rhetoric. His campaign is built on his initial opposition to the war, but once he became a US Senator, his votes on Iraq have been identical with Sen. Clinton's. Why did he continue to fund the war if he was strongly opposed to it? Maybe he thought not supporting the war would have been a political mistake for him. And if his opposition to this war is so strong, why did it take him until 2007--in the middle of a presidential campaign (how convenient)--to propose a bill to get troops out of Iraq. Two years to act on his strongest conviction? He says he'll be ready to act on his first day in office. Why should he be believed when it took him TWO YEARS to act on the Iraq war?

I'm glad to see Sen. Clinton's ads. Obama's response shows he's a politician, just like she is. He's better with rhetoric, perhaps, but his record is no better. Sure, he also talks about what judgment he showed to oppose the war from the beginning. Was this the same judgment that led him to vote to continue to fund the war? Was this the same judgment that kept him from submitting ANY bill to Congress--under his name--to pull the troops out of Iraq until Jan., 2007--in the middle of a presidential campaign. What timing! And his supporters think he's something new. I don't suppose his supporters know that he has more lobbyists working for his campaign than Clinton has working for her, and even though he won't take THEIR money, he will take the money their spouses give him. And people still think he's new and refreshing and a real CHANGE. It's just a different package.

The ONLY reason Obama voted the same as Clinton on the Iraq War votes when he got into the Senate is BECAUSE senseless political opportunists like Hillary Clinton authorized the war to begin with.

The best solution to the Iraq War was never to go to war to begin with. Don't blame Obama for doing his best to clean up Hillary's mess.
