Shame on you!
Sorry Hillary, but angry or not – and ‘in the right’ or not – you need to not be on camera looking all angry like that. AND you sound like an old lady…
Senator Clinton’s latest attempt to derail Barack Obama comes after his camp released ‘campaign literature’ that Clinton claims is spreading lies about her positions on healthcare and NAFTA. Namely that she thought NAFTA was a good idea/success, and that her healthcare plan will require you to pay for coverage [statements which both appear to be true].
Clinton is using this as an attempt to fuel her campaign going in to another debate against Obama – coming up in Ohio in March – saying she wants to meet in Ohio ‘to have a debate about [Barack's] tactics and [his] behavior in this campaign’. Funny, I thought debates were supposed to be about policies, plans for the country, international relations, all that ‘leader of the free world’ junk…
Obama spokesman Bill Burton said his campaign looked forward “to having a debate this Tuesday on the facts, and the facts are that Sen. Clinton was a supporter of NAFTA and the China permanent trade treaties until this campaign began. ”
“And she herself has said that under the Clinton health care plan, she would consider ‘going after the wages‘ of Americans who don’t purchase health insurance, whether they can afford it or not,” he added[via CNN].
And then Barack responded:
Seems a lot like Hillary has realized that in a race that basically comes down to ‘who does the American public LIKE better’ [since their political stances are so similar], she’s losing the popularity contest. Funny thing about that – this is where Obama’s promise of ‘change’ holds true, as he doesn’t reduce his campaign to political mudslinging and name calling. I mean, c’mon Hil – you’re really comparing him to Karl Rove because his campaign released a flier that describes your healthcare plan the same way that you do? And reports your stance on NAFTA? You’re giving him too much credit – and forgetting your own positions.
