I think that its sad that Hillary's folks have to work so hard to create scandal
since its the only way that "their gal" can win. In a year where hope and change and good feelings should be dominating the party, Hillary has come in like the Grinch and stolen all of that from us in her quest to tear down Obama. After throwing the party under the bus with her endorsement of McCain, her race baiting and now her embracing of the Wright "scandal" how can anyone not call her monster?

Thanks Hillary!! Thanks Hillary supporters! You've ruined what should have been a great cycle for democrats.

3. Her press conference today proves that she decided to push a six month old story
that had already been addressed and that had nothing to do with Obama (unless Obama's real name is "Rev Wright".)

9. Keep telling yourself it had nothing to do with Obama.
Keep whistling past the graveyard of your dead-in-the-water candidate.

4. Hillary identifies with Bush & McCain, 'strong on terror' god knows she's
terrified the U.S. thinking citizens. She's just being honest in her support of '100 more years in Iraq' McCain. She honestly needs to swithch to the Repu b party TODAY. She'd be much happier as Lieberman is now.

7. The media made this a "race " issue by highlighting things in the
very start, I mean very start, that were not race issues. They want both of them out. I like both of them very much and am totaly demoralized by what the media has done. Its like kids on the play ground hearing one saying something and then they play it up and up and make the other respond.
Its demoralizing to watch that super rePIG republican pit Chris Matthews licking his lips with glowing eyes. That pig.
Divide and conquer. I will support any dem over that oligarch warmonger John "beat up by bush" boy.

8. I think it is sad that you refuse to question the lies that Obama is telling
and cover your ears and close your eyes and sing "lalalala." And then vote.

10. The difference between me and you is that I'm not acting like Wright is brand new information
He was brought up in a debate no less. But now, since Hillary had such a bad week, she and her supporters embrace and push the story. Show some more faux outrage Evergreen.

12. You Obamanics are really and truly paranoid, aren't you?
Everytime Obama stumps his toe, the Obama brigade puts out a press release blaming Hillary for it. I heard that Hillary once caused Obama not to get the tricycle he wanted for Christmas.

The Clinton Campaign has nothing to do with this Wright story -- except for the fact that the story was covered up for as long as possible by the MSM so Obama wouldn't be too harmed by it in the early going. (Paranoia is contagious).

The Clinton also has had nothing to do with all the other stories that have made Obama look stupid -- he did every one of those to himself.

In fact, except for paranoid accusations like the one I'm responding to, there is not a single instance of the Clinton Campaign saying or doing anything underhanded since this campaign got underway, (although her enemies consistently warp he facts to make it APPEAR as if there has been.)

The people who are attacking Hillary are acting EXACTLY like the people who unfairly attacked Bill for eight years. In fact, I'm convinced many of them are the SAME people.

13. So how do you explain the Press Conference going on right now?
Hell, even McCain has said that its no big deal. Hillary continues to flog away at a dying horse.

Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 11:57 AM by JackORoses
maybe it will bring you some solace when your gal is crushed beneath the coming Tide.

If you don't realize that Hillary was behind pushing this, then you are blind.
It was her response to quell Ferraro.

This is not a weapon that McCain could ever use because of his own zealots.

Only Hillary could possibly benefit from this.
Too bad for her that it will fail as miserably as everything else she has done.

27. Since I was hard on you earlier. I'll try and make amends by
backing you up on this one. Because you are right. Hillary had nothing to do with this. This is unfortunate for Obama, but is not Hillary's fault. If Hillary ends up getting blamed for this one I'll be very disappointed in the DU community. She is not the root of all things that go wrong for Barack. That is merely demonization at its most cynical.

22. Create a scandal? I would venture to say there are folks i e rnc
that are looking over sermons by this pastor to find if he said stupid shit that has been reported. The reason rnc is looking this over, obama said he was never attended a sermon where pastor wright said anything like what is reported. Obama will be called out on this but maybe this is what took place: Remember, the Obamas have two daughters. When they were babies, there were probably times when the girls started crying in church. Apparently, Barack was the one who took them out to the vestibule so they wouldn't disturb the other worshipers. Obviously, once he saw Barack disappear from view, Rev Wright began his hate America sermons.

25. The dirty, rotten "kitchen sink" strategy will only hurt Hillary in the long term.
She acts like a republican and thinks like a republican.

She can't see past the end of her nose.

26. It speaks volumes of what a Clinton Presidency would be
Does anyone really want 8 years of this kind of petty
vindictiveness, partisan sniping, personal smearing
and just plain devisiveness exhibited by the Clintons
and their operatives???

I sure as hell don't.
