LoL.Great Response By The Obama Campaign



Extreme Umbrage


Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

Clinton campaign says Obama supporter retired Air Force Gen. Merrill Tony McPeak comparing Bill Clinton to Joe McCarthy is an outrage and ought to be retracted.

On Saturday conference call with media, Clinton advisers repeatedly point press to Obama campaign attacks on H. Clintons character contrasted with Obamas pledge to change the tone of U.S. politics.

Obama spokesman Burton responds: Since the Clinton campaign had a news-less conference call, reiterating tired lines of attack with no basis in reality, instead of responding with a call of our own, we are going to give the press corps a break so that we can all enjoy this holiday weekend with our families and maybe even watch a little basketball.

Also sends out opposition research memo listing B. Clintons past comments on McCarthyism.Read it here.

9. The oppo research memo on Bill's past McCarthyism comments is simply DEVASTATING.
This is hardball politics and Team Obama scored more than a few points with this one.

So is anyone going to start placing bets on the next time Bill opens his mouth and sticks his foot in it?

12. I understand the point he was making, but Bill Clinton praising
Prescott Bush for anything is disturbing.

And although he was absolutely right in condemning McCarthy, how American is plotting to turn our country into a fascist state?

Sorry - got off topic.

Criticism is of Prescott Bush (knee-jerk reaction).

13. I don't know how sincere it is, but that's a clever jab.
If it's just a trick, it'll probably only be used once.

16. Fuck their faux outrage..you don't call your
opponent "UnAmerican"(which hilary called Obama on tv) and expect it to go unanswered and bil's little subliminal message about the other candidate not loving America was so dishonest.. but Obama has friends who don't like it when bil gets dishonest.

Halperin:

Clinton camps Singer shoots back: The Obama camp is so eager to give the press corp a break that it had their candidate do an event today where they dispatched one of their top surrogates to manufacture an attack on us. More words.


That was weak. The Clintons hate Easter and College Hoops! :P

24. Irony. Bill said: "Weve got enough division. I want to lead a unified country.
agh tons of irony in that link to Bill Clinton/McCarthyism.

32. The kind of respose you'd expect from a guilty teen-ager...
who would rather be 'smart' with his parents rather than answer the question, "why did you tell that lie about our neighbor?"
