Hillary Clinton Attacks Republicans, While Martin O’Malley Attacks Clinton.

'Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley celebrated their performances at the debate at a barbecue in central Iowa on Sunday afternoon, each gloating that the Democrats looked better than the Republicans on a national stage.

But with the smell of smoked pork wafting over a dusty agriculture learning center in Ames, it was the underdog O’Malley who turned his attention to attacking Clinton, ensuring the fireworks continued after the Saturday night debate.

“There are profound differences in this race,” the former Maryland Governor told a crowd of several hundred Iowa Democrats gathered in chairs on a dirt floor. He knocked Clinton on gun control, her acceptance of Wall Street contributions and immigration, saying the former Secretary of State is inconsistent on progressive values.

“In every campaign, there comes a time when the candidates have to present their case, compare and contrast with the other candidates in this race,” O’Malley told a scrum of reporters after the event. “There are profound differences between the three candidates and the experience we have to offer.”

On gun control, O’Malley attacked Clinton for shifting her rhetoric over the years. “Secretary Clinton has been on three sides of this issue. For it in 2000, against it in 2008 when she used to hit president Obama with it and said you shouldn’t have national standards, and now back,” O’Malley said. He criticized her on immigration, saying that she did not “pass comprehensive immigration reform” in 2007, when she had a chance as senator from New York. “Now we have to pick up the pieces and move forward,” O’Malley said.

O’Malley also hit Clinton on perhaps her worst moment in the debate last night, when she appeared to connect the 9/11 attacks to her support on Wall Street. “Last night in the debate, Secretary Clinton, to try to mask her proximity to Wall Street and the huge amount of contributions she has received personally from the major banks of Wall Street, sadly invoked 9/11,” O’Malley said. “She doesn’t have to mask it. It is what it is. That is the sort of economy, that is the sort of economic advice she would follow.”


O’Malley said he would be the more trustworthy progressive. “I have been consistent,” O’Malley told the audience. “I am clear about my principles and that is what has allowed me to be an effective leader.” >>>

1. “Secretary Clinton has been on three sides of this issue."

If only it was just that one issue.
