Martin O’Malley: “Hopefully” Clinton Regrets “Disgraceful” 9/11 Wall Street Comments.

'Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said on Tuesday that he hopes his presidential rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, regrets invoking the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 when explaining her ties to Wall Street.
O’Malley used some of the harshest criticism he’s had for Clinton, calling the comments “disgraceful.”
“I thought it was disgraceful, actually, what she said,” he said Concord News Radio. “Trying to pump out a smokescreen to distract from the real issue from her alignment with the big banks of Wall Street by wrapping herself in the sentiments in the tragedy of 9/11. And hopefully she regrets the mistake and we can move on to healthier debate.” . .

O’Malley said he thought Clinton was trying to distract people from her Wall Street friendly policies.

“I didn’t understand what she was saying, I thought she was trying to distract people from the fact that she is in fact her economic theories are very much aligned with the big banks of Wall Street,” said O’Malley. “Whose theory of how America’s economy works is of the few, by the few, for the few.

“She’s the only candidate on that stage that doesn’t believe the banks have become too big to jail, too big to fail, and too big to manage — shouldn’t be continually out there for us to bail out with our tax dollars,” he continued. “She’s the only one of them three of us that is opposed to modern version of Glass-Steagall so that we separate speculative banking from traditional banking that all of us ensure. That’s not capitalism. What, you place bad bets and we have to bail you out?”'

1. Here's the logic behind that

First you have to believe Hillary's campaign is getting donations from Wall Street firms. (Firms don't contribute to campaigns)
Then you have to believe that anyone working on Wall Street and giving personally to Hillary's campaign is an evil villain who wants to destroy the middle class. (They are part of the middle class)
Next you have to believe Wall Street firms are giving millions to PACs supporting Hillary( actually her PACs raised around $650,000)
Next you have to believe that Hillary doesn't deserve her speaking fees and that speaking to investment firms is next to treason( free speech and all)
After all that you have to believe that saying she represented Manhattan on 9/11 is part of an evil scheme to take Rudi Giuliani's thunder away

2. You have way over-stated what 'you have to believe.'
