So what is the genesis of HRC's SChip firedrill? It comes at a convenient time for Obama..
do you think it's the MSM balancing out the nasty coverage? I think it's kind of odd that HRC/SChip has been out there for the entire campaign and NOW it's an issue?

I saw Orrin Hatch talking about it, so I'm guessing it's a rethug thing. Although I did see that Greg Craig, former white house counsel, currently an Obama staffer started the issue.

Any info?

2. sure, Hillary lied about being involved with creating SCHIP.
She actually had little to do with it. Some members of Congress who were present at the time have said as much.

Now you know why Obama supporters find the Wright issue so maddening.

As far as SCHIP now being an issue, it was only added to Clinton's stump speech in Ohio if I remember correctly, and she began highlighting it in several TV ads then as well.

Maybe it wasnt an issue before she started using it regularly as a part of her message of experience?
:shrug:

4. You have to admit that people resent Hillary's puffing up her resume
and taking credit for things she had very little, or nothing at all do with, and they're speaking out about it. Did you think they wouldn't? I mean, we do want "EVERYONE" vetted right?

6. Sure do.......because
certainly the Hillary's supporters have been working overtime at "vetting" Obama and his wife, and also his pastor. Me, I've been vetting both of them. That's how I chose to support Obama.

8. Kennedy said a while back she was full of shit
and I said she was full of shit before that, in fact the first time she took credit for it I said she was full of shit. Sorry none of Hillary's supporters believe anything until a Republican says it.

12. Actually, George Mitchell said she DID have a lot to do with peace in Irleand.
And who would be in a better position to know.

So Hillary ISN'T full of shit, Kennedy is. So are you.

14. The Irish said she was full of shit
And I think I'll take their word for it, not another one of Hillary's say anything supporters.

13. We are Democrats, running against repugs...just possibly
just saying, they may have something do do with it. Isn't it curious that Obama gets hit big time, and it must be Hillary. Hillary gets hit, it must be Obama. Bad blood, flame and ruin, the party is wracked by the infighting, while McCain basks in the shade...

And we imagine that the Republicans are doing nothing? Think about it! Get a grip! How much crap have they pulled that has been blamed on Hillary, how much crap have they pulled on Obama and signed Hillary's name to?

Deal with the SChip thing...I haven't read a thing about it myself, but watch out for the puppetmasters pulling your strings.

15. This deserves its own thread.
It's a good reminder, and probably true.
