But Obama has spoken. It is to blame Hillary for it all. No deviation. Comply or else.

1. And it will be on the front page of the Times on Nov 1 and the lead story on ABC network news too
If it will help McCain.

Get used to this.

3. And? It's not like those mailers that Hillary is suddenly "enraged" over are new.
Also, the uproar isn't so much about the photos themselves, but who sent them to who and why.

No Democrat should be sending information about another Dem to Drudge. End of story.

14. If the Clinton campaign is sending Drudge info about fellow Democrats...
...that is way, way over the line. I'm not angry over the source, I'm angry about who SUPPLIED the source.

If the Clinton campaign was not involved they need to state that immediately.

29. Why? Is that going to make a difference? No. It has been out for awhile. They love what they're
doing and you guys are all buying it. Honestly at this point I don't care if they did put it out.
Supermarket tabloid The National Examiner reportedly ran the photo in its Feb. 4 issue. The photo appeared on right-wing message board Free Republic and conservative blog Sweetness & Light before Drudge picked it up. At least one Freeper recognized the need for wider distribution.

"Good Job," a user on Free Republic said to the person who posted the tabloid pic. "t needs to get to Drudge,M.Malkin,Debbie Schussel etc....I want to see his explanation on this."

34. Go on drama queens for Obama. No evidence of anything just smears from Obama and his surrogates.
It is you and your candidate that are propagating smears. Talk about playing the victim constantly.

6. Drudge tried to tear Bill Clinton 849 new holes...
Do you think Drudge loves Hillary now?

Maybe.

Maybe it's his meal ticket.

Will this play to hurt Hillary or hurt Obama?

I wonder.

9. Kristi1696 do you have evidence Hillary sent those photos?
If not, then it's pure speculation and bias. And the smear is not constructive.

Politico is reporting that the campaign did not deny sending the photos...
...as Drudge claimed they did. Why? If they are not in contact with Drudge, then they need to vehemently deny this now.

My sister lives in Ohio and recieved Hillary fliers in the mail over the weekend and was stunned by her press conference.

The more shook up you are about this photo, the more you should fear Obama not being able to handle it, because I assure you the photo, having been posted on Free Republic on 4. February is out there.

16. No one is denying that it has been in circulation. The question is, why are Clinton
campaign workers circulating a picture of Obama in indigenous dress when lots of politicians visiting foreign countries, including Hillary herself (Hillary with a Muslim head scarf, for example), wear indigenous dress and get photographed in it?

17. It's either true, OR they have so little control over their campaign...
...that they don't know whether it's true or not. Either option is a problem.

Compare and contrast to the Obama Nevada mailer. The source of that was identified almost immediately and corrected. So, why the delay here?

A Muslim.

I mean, I don't care. I like him. I prefer Hillary, but I will vote any Dem.

Still, how will it play on the ground?

weren't members of his family Muslim? Not that I care. I am a pantheist/semi-Christian myself. But I just wonder about how the GOP will continue the smears.

You need to look hard at yourself. The truth is obvious, but no one wants to know it. Just take advantage of it and be outraged. So phony.

12. The original source is not the issue. Clinton campaign workers circulating it is the issue.
Now if they were not circulating it recently you might have a point. But if they have been circulating a freeper meme this past week doesn't the fact that it came from freepers make it even more egregious?

Doesn't matter that Laura bush did it, too. This will just emphasize his Kenyan ties, for better or worse as far as imagery is concerned.

If the Clinton campaign is spreading this around, as has been reported, that is WAY out of line!

40. Obama's campaign would not connect Hillary to the story without validation
It has happened before and Axelrod denounced the attempts to link Hillary's campaign to an attack:

The article further reported that Obama strategist David Axelrod said he did not "believe ... for a second" the allegation that Clinton's camp was behind the story.


This latest incident is different in that it comes on the heels of Hillary's campaign and her surrogates promoting Obama's ties to "former members of a radical domestic terrorist group."

Hillary Clinton woos man who nearly ruined her husband

Earlier this month, Ms Clinton's staff leaked campaign fundraising data to the website just as her rival for the nomination, Barack Obama, was to deliver a policy speech on Iraq - and a crucial 20 minutes before the official release of the information. The story on Ms Clinton's fundraising prowess dominated the news cycle.


Not buying Hillary's non-denial!

from the Clinton camp.

Same old B.S. with the RW, kill two birds with one stone and discredit both Democratic candidates at the same time.

It doesn't help that the media fans the flames and the Obama fans go into a tizzy......

53. Obamababies so in a hurry to blame Hillary instead of
looking for the real source? They are going to turn all those Republicons right back to McCain. How dumb can one get? The obamababies better start thinking of bonding our party instead of making many consider voting for McLame in the GE. It is not only about who is our nominee but who we will be running against in the GE.

Here is a clue Obamababies: Free Republic and the Right Wing machine.
