This isn't even the FIRST time ! She brought up RFK a couple of weeks ago during
a campaign stop, but stopped short of saying "assassination", in defending her staying in the race and the "anything can happen" meme.

People here were shouted down by her supporters for even SUGGESTING that is what she was hinting at. Well, now she's said it, straight out.

WHERE IS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND OUR LEADERS??!!

95. I remember. I also remember thinking...
"THERE's a subliminal message, if ever there was one." This puts her into the Filthy, Disgusting Creep category - undeniably and irrevocably.

The first time I excused it as speaking without thinking of the possible connection that could be made by listeners. But now I have to think it is deliberate. Very distressing. :(

325. She said she regretted using RFK 68 as part of expanation of why she's still in race
http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/05/23/clinton.comments /

she regretted comments that evoked the June 1968 assassination of Robert Kennedy as part of her explanation for why she was staying in the presidential race late into the primary season.

342. Did she regret it this time too?
March 6, 2008

TIME: Can you envision a point at which--if the race stays this close--Democratic Party elders would step in and say, "This is now hurting the party and whoever will be the nominee in the fall"?


CLINTON: No, I really can't. I think people have short memories. Primary contests used to last a lot longer. We all remember the great tragedy of Bobby Kennedy being assassinated in June in L.A. My husband didn't wrap up the nomination in 1992 until June. Having a primary contest go through June is nothing particularly unusual.

Not in that article she didn't.

Re-read it again without the chip on your shoulder.

I agree she should drop out - BUT - she CLEARLY did not say what you are trying to insist that she said.

prevented a candidate from continuing to the convention, and you claim she's hoping O will be assassinated or some shit? no wonder people hate obama supporters.

It was a dog whistle to the flock.

Congrats. Your candidate went there. And on the week that Teddy was diagnosed with brain cancer.

315. See, here's the problem with this defense...
Edited on Fri May-23-08 05:11 PM by ingin
If, god forbid, something like that would happen, the party could nominate a candidate from the floor. So her argument that "anything can happen" has no merit.

This crosses the line for me. With Teddy out of commish, for her to raise the spector of the Kennedy assasination is thoughtless and insensitive, if not a flagrant attempt to put fear into the electorate. She's smart enough to know better.

I will not call for her to step down, but I will call for the Super 'D's to end this for her.

On Edit: Besides, California, and the rest of the delegate rich states have come and gone, so what state would put her over the top between now and the convention? NONE!

379. More like she is hoping that someone
will assassinate Obama and she can walk into the nomination.

First time was wishful thinking. This second time is a suggestion to her bigoted friends in KY. The next will be her calling out for it to happen in plain words.

The woman has turned evil from her delusional visions of her coronation. Someone needs to talk some sense into her and Bill.

Anyone with any brains knows she was only referencing the fact that primaries go beyond June. That's all she meant. One was tragically cut short. That's it. She wasn't wishing ill on anyone. Once again. GOOD GRIEF!

California's primary is was February, almost four months ago! 1992's June is 2008's March or April. Her still being in the race at this point is like the 1992 pirmary going into the end of July.

and your hateful language is stupid.

She's pointing out that Kennedy was still in the race in Juen.

The notion that nobody is allowed to even mention assassination is just insane. She's not wishing it on anybody, and it's not a taboo topic.

There's no reason to believe Obama's in any more danger than Clinton is.

206. Fuck that
She's telling people why she's sticking around.

No who pathetic is that to stick around because you think the person who has been elected by the people for your party's nomination 'might' have something bad befall him or her.

If that's the case then she should simply suspend her campaign like Edwards did. It would save people the money of giving to her campaign and she would still be around for any other senerios.

This really exposes the hillbots who will support her regardless of how pathetic she gets.

The only question left is how much voltage hillbots require for their recharge when they go back to the lab at night?

So where is her justification to remind us of Robbie's assassination?

It's her "anything can happen" argument again, in it's most grotesque form.

I'm sorry, it's just indefensible.

This has to end and Hillary can't be anywhere near the whitehouse...forget VP...she made it clear why she can't possibly be considered. If the fanatical Clinton supporters want to switch to McCain...then fuck them...go do it.

65. there is something in the whitehouse paint...
lots of lead or something because both the bushes and the clintons have gone insane.

she must be under a huge amount of pressure from her bosses to have to go to such ridiculous and dangerous lengths to attempt to hang onto the keys to the file cabinets in the WH and all that they may reveal to the world after the protection of both clintons and bushes to keep them closed for all these years.

she is desparate, frightened, panic mode.

they were given the best advantages to sew this election up and they blew it because of their massive egos. Their bosses are not amused. Their owners are disappointed and angry. and threatenimg.

she will certainly do anything.

28. What a sociopath!!!!
http://www.mcafee.cc/Bin/sb.html

Glibness and Superficial Charm


Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
*************************************

Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."
********************************
Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
*****************************
Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

*******************************
Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

********************************


Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

29. Here's the text of the article. She is criminally insane. Last straw. GET HER OUT.
Hillary Clinton today brought up the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy while defending her decision to stay in the race against Barack Obama.

"My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it," she said, dismissing calls to drop out.

Watch a video of the editorial board meeting here.

Clinton made her comments at a meeting with the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader's editorial board while campaigning in South Dakota, where she complained that, "People have been trying to push me out of this ever since Iowa."

Obama, the first African-American to advance so far in the race for the White House, has faced threats, sources have said.

Robert Kennedy, the younger brother of President John F. Kennedy, was gunned down in 1968 after winning the California primary. He had been a hero on the left for his civil rights agenda and calls to end the war in Vietnam.

Barack Obama, who leads Clinton by nearly 200 delegates and has already secured a majority of pledged delegates, has been the subject of threats. Early in the campaign, the Secret Service gave him a security detail at the request of Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Illinois).

Clinton criticized an "urgency" to end the campaign prematurely, saying, "Historically, that makes no sense."

I don't much care for Clinton, but I have a hard time believing that she would make that connection so blatently. Its just unnessicary. Even if something did happen, and I don't put it past this country to give birth to the horrific, suspending her campaign would not make any difference to her availibility, so it makes absolutely no difference to whether she should stay in or not.

It sounded crazy at first but what she said, she said - she's basically sticking around to see if someone might off Obama. And getting it on the media could possibly put it into the head of some crazy "blue-collar" bastard that might act on it.

Sounds far fetched, you say? At what point shall we cease to be surprised by where Hillary goes and by what she says????

The "uncommitted" superdelegates need to quit straddling the fence and get the part together, now. Get this thing over with already and take away Clinton's ability to bring down the Democratic party.

They were very good during the Gore-Bush Florida debacle when I encountered what I believed was a credible statement of intent to kill Gore. I won't go into the details, but it was clear from the internet hookups through a series of posts that he was, as he said he was, traveling from Texas to Florida.

Anyway, I believe the SS took it seriously by the way that they had me walk them through the series of posts, point out how to contact the FreeRepublic ISP, etc.

Dear DNC,
I'm writing to express my outrage at recent statements by Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, raising the possibility of Barack Obama being assassinated, as a reason for her to stay in the race. This is one of the most tasteless despicable things I've ever heard out of the mouth of ANY candidate, much less any Democratic candidate.

She's become an embarrassment and a disgrace to the Democratic party by making such creepy self-serving comments. Please please do whatever it takes to get this woman out of this primary race immediately, as she's obviously now just waiting around for something tragic to happen to her opponent as her only reason for continuing to run.

Thank you for listening.
Sincerely,
XXXXXXXX

74. I can't defend it, and won't try
I have the tape of her interview playing now but it hasn't reached the part where this came up yet. I'll keep typing and listening. Look, I don't buy the worst case scenario explanation for why she said what the artical says she said, but the best case scenario explanation for it is still pretty damn bad. If she doesn't instinctively understand why this is a road she should never set off on while making a case for why it is too soon for anyone to say that the nominating contest has gone on too long, then God help her when she has to communicate about some other complex theme that must be explained or defended.

OK, the video is getting to that part now
"I have a long enough memory that many people who finished a distant second behind eventual nominees went all the way to the convention" She lists a bunch of early convention years when that happened before and then says she is highly competitive "ahead in popular vote" etc. "People have been trying to push me out of this since Iowa... I don't know why, it is unprecedented..." She talks about how unusual it is to expect other candidates to clear the field this early then says: "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until sometime in June, we all remember that Bobby Kennedy was assasinated in California in June 1968...."

I can possibly give her terminally tone deaf on this one, but if so that is still damning with far less than very faint praise. She wandered into this talking point once before I remember. She really realy should have known by now that it was a stupid reference to make the first time, and an unforgivable one to make twice.

261. that seems to be her MO.
she goes down a path with little notice from media or anyone then repeats it a couple of times and then is 'surprised' when it bites her in the pantsuit......remember the Bosnia story? She gave that account several times before it blew up in her face and then claimed 'sleep deprevation' and then finally came clean about it. She used something else the same way, I can't remember right now what it was. She floats these things out there and sees is any of them stick. It will be curious to see what she does when this blows up in her face.

375. Yes, "boys" talk about assassination all the time
If a 'boy' candidate claimed he was in the race til the bitter end, waiting, hoping for another 'boy' to be assassinated, no one would pay any attention.

This is another sexist slime orchestrated by Barack Obama because Hillary is a gurl.

Geraldine Ferraro will explain to all of us in the morning why the Hillary fans are right, and then Bill will compare it to Jesse Jackson. Karl Rove will be on Sunday morning to help us with the Hilla-math, and things will be back to normal on Monday.

She was providing *reasons*, *justifications*, for her staying in the race.

There are a lot of people that still wonder how much better off we would be if Bobby had lived and won. Then you have Teds current condition. The underlying fears that Obama will be assassinated that everyones trying real hard not to talk about. She just found the magic words that dig at all those wounds at the same time.

228. Context
What she said was "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it," she said, dismissing calls to drop out.

Suggesting her reason for not dropping out is that someone might be assassinated, like Bobby Kennedy was.

The moron in the neon pantsuit without a brain needs to leave the circus arena, immediately.

It would have been just as easy for her to say that Bobby Kennedy won the CA primary in June and Bill Clinton was still running for his nom in June and her point would have been just fine and understandable. But to bring up the thought of an assassination when there are many nut cases out there and so many people are so stirred up about this primary. I have tried hard see both sides and be respectful to Hillary supporters, but I'm sorry she has really gone too far this time. This shit really makes me pissed!!!!!!

She'll spin it as "I was talking about the dates!" when it's clear that she was dropping this idea out there just to make people nervous about an Obama candidacy. Beyond that, I can only imagine what runs through her ego-drive psyche.

She has become increasingly delusional, has lost control of her campaign and is increasingly reckless in her speech. I have defended her right to stay in the race, but no longer. Leave this race before you doirreparable damage to the Party, the country and your quickly eroding reputation.

225. Calling her "delusional" is the most charitable interpretation. Self-serving evil vulture
is more to the point and more accurate IMHO.

But I'm glad she's outed herself with her own words.

124. I don't think the remark was about Obama; I think it may have been a dig at Ted Kennedy.
The man went after her candidacy and supported Obama in a big way.

149. Either way, it's irresponsible and even cruel if it's aimed at Kennedy...Obama has a lot of
death threats against his life, there are tons of crazies out there...who are already upset at the possibility of a black president--you don't fan their insane flames with inflammatory rhetoric.

No, not in 1963.

In this primary, where the Secret Service suddenly stopped searching people for guns (in fucking TEXAS??) at an Obama rally. The Dallas cop who questioned this breach of security just happened to be the same one who died accidentally the very next day while escorting the Hillary motorcade.

Coincidence?? :scared: :tinfoilhat:

366. Get a grip, I live in Dallas and the officer's death was an ACCIDENT, completely on tape and
verified. You people are OFF THE CHARTS crazy if you think Hillary Clinton was advocating or channeling an assassination attempt, I mean it, BAT SHIT CRAZY. Will probably get TS'd, but at this point, what's the point, the loons have taken over the moral center of the Dem party. What happens if the video of Michelle Obama is real ?? What happens when people find out about the REAL association with Ayers and the "educational reparation" education plan that Obama's educational adviser is advocating. NO ONE GETS THE NOMINATION UNTIL A FLOOR VOTE AT THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION, PERIOD END OF STORY. NO ONE CAN FORCE A CANDIDATE TO QUIT, END OF STORY. You can email Dean, Pelosi, the FBI, the Secret Service, the CIA, every Super Delegate and all your family and friends, but they, or you, can't make Clinton quit. If Obama gets blown out of the water, or worse, Rezko rolls over on him and he gets indicted, then what happens, we just remove his name from the ballot and .... oh wait, I forgot, he already did that to himself in Michigan. That is the MO of both his campaign, and his followers, quit the races you can't win and then claim racism while touting other races with high AA voters as the "will of the people". Incidentally, I found an interesting factoid today, Obama gained 13 more delegates than Clinton in Idaho where he won a caucus by 13,000 votes (in a RED STATE) while Clinton only gained 10 more delegates in Pennsylvania where she mopped the floor with his ass by 200,000 votes. SO DON'T GIVE ME THE DELEGATES COUNT MORE BULLSHIT, you lost that right when you got indignant about Gore having won the popular vote (got gamed in Florida, but just like all the SD's and elected Dems jumping on the bandwagon, quit cause it was just easier and better for the county, how'd that turn out?)

Your guy will fold like a cheap tent, if I needed anymore proof of that, this manufactured outrage over a trivial statement - FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY AN APOLOGY ONCE IT WAS DETERMINED THAT IT WAS ANOTHER POINT OF "RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION" seals the deal. Good luck electing this puff ball with the coalition that couldn't elect McGovern, Mondale, Gore or Kerry. If you run around with losers, you are a loser. Remember that during the November hang-over when you are futilely trying to convince everyone that your "charismatic candidate for change" got his ass beat down because of Hillary, when in fact, Obama need look only in the mirror for the reasons he will lose.

Peace out Obama Underground, I have enjoyed my lurking/occasionally posting in the few years previous to this one, but, Y'all have gone WAY off the deep end and I don't see the party recovering from the "lurch to the left" anymore than I see the Republicans recovering from the "lurch to the right". You would do well to remember that a majority of America is in the middle, so when the middle repudiates both parties, you can all go play with your pony and wonder how you fucked this up so badly.

2004-2008
TS'd with pride and dignity :nuke:

its not the first time:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/05/23/clinton-kenned...


Earlier in the campaign, a Clinton surrogate also raised the issue of assassination, this time with a more direct reference to Obama. The Clinton camp immediately distanced itself from the suggestion:

Today, in Dover, Francine Torge, a former John Edwards supporter, said this while introducing Mrs. Clinton: "Some people compare one of the other candidates to John F. Kennedy. But he was assassinated. And Lyndon Baines Johnson was the one who actually" passed the civil rights legislation....

Phil Singer, a Clinton spokesman said: "We were not aware that this person was going to make those comments and disapprove of them completely. They were totally inappropriate."


Nobel laureate Doris Lessing also raised a stir when she suggested that Obama would be assassinated were he to become president:

Obama, who is vying to become the first black president in US history, "would certainly not last long, a black man in the position of president. They would murder him," Lessing, 88, told the Dagens Nyheter daily.

Dear Sen. Clinton,
I am shocked and disgusted by your recent comments to the effect that the main reason you are staying in the race for the nomination is because Obama might be assassinated like Robert Kennedy was in 1968.

I find this reference particularly sickening, since I personally worked for RFK in Oregon and California; and to have you appearing to wish a similar fate upon your opponent is just so wrong on so many levels. Don't you realize you increasingly appear appear to be a self-serving vulture, waiting for and wishing tragedy on others so you can capitalize on it?

Please end this dark charade and drop out of the race now. You'll be doing us all a favor, including yourself at this point.

Sincerely,
XXXX

I've been fully sympathetic to that situation he's in. And also that he needs to not alienate her base since he will need them, and for party unity. But there comes a time you have to take up for yourself. He just keeps on saying how a fine candidate she is and etc, and now they're saying this horrific statement is unfortunate and let's move on is not right. We've lived with a lot of spineless Democrats the last 8 years. He gets no margin whatsoever to mispeak. Remember "bitter." And she gets away with this!!! Normal people have been arrested for saying stuff about assassinations!! This should be HUGE!

278. If this were an isolated incident, I might agree, but it's not. It's a pattern of dark
references over the past several weeks about how "anything can happen", hinting at assassination, but now she's come right out and said
it flatly without mincing words.. There's NO excuse for this kind of comment. None.

Are you aware that the KKK is on record as having basically put out a contract on Obama already? And now Hillary's pandering to them
openly by raising the specter of assassination ... like she's hoping for it to save her sorry-assed campaign.

How can you defend this?

383. Of course she could have.
When I first saw the video, it took me a minute or two to figure out the relevance of her mentioning the word 'assassinated' at all. It just threw that whole sentence out of balance -- I didn't want to believe it was done intentionally.

By inference alone, bringing Bobby into the conversation would make that a loaded statement, but one that would at least be defensible, from a historical perspective. But, I believe the sentence was purposefully constructed much more literally for those too stupid to pick up on that inference.

SUBLIMINAL MESSAGE

to anyone who wants to instill fear in Obama and his supporters. . .

and, by extension, put into motion any copy-cat assassin who light up at the innuendo of RFK's assassination. . .being the 40th anniversary this year.

Hillary has foot-in-mouth-disease

. . .that alone should end her campaign riddled with a pattern of divisive language. . .some leader she'd make.

Using the assassination of a fellow Democrat as justification to stay in the race is beyond the pale, low class, and can even be viewed as outright sinister. And to say something like right after Bobby Kennedy's brother was just diagnosed with terminal cancer. Yes, let's bring up the name of Ted Kennedy's beloved brother for political gain.

The fact that you're even defending this is just "rediculous." (sic)

277. I don't even understand what her point was.
The California primary was long ago. Just as with Bill, Bobby Kennedy was in the race in June because the California primary was in June at the time and California had 800 billion delegates even back then. If it had been in February in 1968 or 1992 those primaries may well have been over long before June.

As far as his being shot, I don't think that has any particular relevance either way. I don't think she pulled it out to scare Obama supporters, I think she was just speaking off the cuff and spouted some irrelevant nonsense because she hasn't slept since 2007.

There are plenty of good arguments to be made for why a candidate should stay in the race as long as possible. Hillary and Howard Dean both came third in Iowa, and if Dean hadn't dropped out early we might not even be in this mess right now.

286. I find it unbelievable you can just shrug this off. You should be ashamed
of yourself and of your candidate. If she doesn't realize by now that her words have consequences, no matter how "off the cuff" they
are, she doesn't belong in the race anyway. She appears to be openly wishing a tragedy on Obama, for her own gain.

To make this kind of reference is so patently shallow, self-serving and wrong on so many levels. Like a vulture. Grrr.

Was not directed at the Obama campagin, it was basically aimed at the Kennedy Family.
Further more in her apology speech she said something to the effect that we must

she is still referring to individuals who were assasinated.??

309. The whole thing is absurd
It was a nonsensical, muddled comment that doesn't mean anything and it's a silly and frivolous thing for her to fall over (especially when she should have fallen long ago). At this point nothing she says in public matters anyway. She may yet get the nomination through "creative" horse-trading with inside officials, but she will not be the winner of the primary by vote or caucus, and she will not ever be president of the United States. She has pissed off too many people too much. I am not even saying she doesn't deserve to be, but deserving and a nickel won't get you a cup of coffee in this country.

310. Thought Dominoes


In a nutshell ... her comments today really make a person wonder where she is.

The 'thought dominoes' really start to fall.

So, in a discussion about why Hillary is staying in the race she brings up the month of June, Bill's campaign, and the RFK murder.

Is she ...

- Thinking we can rest at ease that she'll be there to save the day if something befalls the delegate leader?
- Thinking she fears for her party if something happened to the delegate leader and alone bears the responsibility to stay in the race if it happpens?
- Thinking something will happen to the delegate leader, and of course she hopes she will be there to pick up the pieces and be the Democratic Party's nominee?
- Thinking that her hope's to be the Party's nominee rest on the '08 Democratic delegate leader befalling the same fate as the '68 Democratic delegate leader?
- Hoping that the '08 Democratic delegate leader befalls the same fate as the '68 Democratic delegate leader?
- Planing to hire thugs to make sure the fate of the '08 Democratic delegate leader befalls the same fate as the '68 Democratic delegate leader?

Regardless of what her thoughts are, if she has any in her noggin at all right now, she now has people thinking and discussing what we should not be thinking and discussing.

No, ifs and or frigging buts.

There are no excuses for this.

Suspect murders, suicides, accidents from Arkansas to the Whitehouse. This is the Clinton's history.

"Anything can happen" Oh, I'm sure, Hillary and Bill. I'm sure.

314. If Obama was prez right now she'd be arrested. It's illegal to make threats or talk about making...
...threats to the president or anyone in high office in this country.

Freedom of speech has a limit when it comes to killing folk.

Edited on Fri May-23-08 05:51 PM by pipi_k
I don't know if I'm going to go so far as to attach evil motives to what she said...I mean, I don't know what was in her mind when she said it...none of us knows.

Whatever the motive/reason for her saying something like this, there's one thing I will say


She's done nothing but shoot herself in the foot since, what...February?


If she's not purposely trying to be an asshole, she sure isn't doing herself any favors and seriously needs to think before running her mouth

324. Beyond scary
Edited on Fri May-23-08 05:58 PM by Utopian Leftist
This whole thing has left me feeling terrified for Obama's safety.

How easy would it be to plant an evil double-agent in Obama's security detail? I'm sure those guys are vetted up the wazoo, but all it takes is one crazy ass-hole who truly believes he's doing this country a favor by offing Obama.

So into this POWDER KEG of danger, Miss Hillary has casually tossed off a lit match. "Oops, oh dear me, that's not what I meant at all," guffaw, guffaw.

Hell will be too kind of a place for her if anything happens to him now.

326. How lame of you. She clearly did not bring up the assassination issue
but people want to make sure it LOOKS like she did.
What she was POINTING to was the Kennedy was still going in JUNE when HE was assassinated.
She said the same thing about Bill still campaigning against people in JUNE.

People here (Obama supporters) *not all of them* stretch facts to the absolute max to make them fit in to the mold they need.


Your post clearly shows that you have an agenda and are willing to perpetuate LIES.

332. Here's the deal...try to keep up.
Edited on Fri May-23-08 06:09 PM by Barrymores Ghost
She wasn't talking about "Kennedy still going in June when he was assassinated" - she was talking about Hubert Humphrey slipping into the Democratic nomination BECAUSE Bobby Kennedy was assassinated. Are you really that OBTUSE?

Listen, at BEST, she's demonstrated she can't conduct herself in a mature or diplomatic fashion when under pressure.

How do I know this?

Well, she just continues to say STUPID. F*CKING. SHIT. ALL. THE. TIME. AND. JUST. CAN'T. SEEM. TO. STOP.

I'm more inclined to believe that she is now officially, completely unhinged with jealousy and bitterness over having been denied her "right" to re-occupy the White House.

Oh, and she just officially bought herself a one-way ticket OFF of anybody's short-list. Ever.

If you are looking for a way to gracefully exit her camp and join the reality-based world community, here's your opportunity. I mean, alluding to the possibility of a hit on one's political opponent certainly qualifies as a deal-breaker in my book.

She didn't allude to shit and you people are INSANE.
It's just as bad as freeper land with some of the kool aid cultists in here.

She fucking clearly didn't say that shit and twisting her words makes it seems
as if Obama can't win if people don't bash her down.

...how could I have NOT predicted THAT brilliant retort?

She says batshit-careless crap with impugnity, shits all over the established Democratic electoral process because she's found herself unexpectedly on the losing end of it -- and people are sexist for calling her out on her idiocy and self-obssessed ambition?

Right, lady.

She didn't allude to anything. She outright used the word 'assassination' with her justification for staying in past June. There's no grey area there.

339. Are you really THAT dim?
Or like Hillary, do you think you are THAT much brighter than everyone else?

Dumping and additional $6.4 million into a losing campaign - IS SUSPECT.

Q: What is your path to the nomination? A: Anything can happen. - IS SUSPECT.

She and her surrogates has been hinting at this scenario since March.

The hints get less and less subtle as the days go by.

What she has definitely accomplished today is SHE WILL NEVER EVER BE THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE AND MUCH LESS BE PRESIDENT!!

She blew her chance to win by default if anything happens to Obama.

And, she blew her slim chance to be VP.

Hell, has she been kicked out of the party and arrested yet?

341. Not the first time. Even used many of the
same words.

March 6, 2008

TIME: Can you envision a point at which--if the race stays this close--Democratic Party elders would step in and say, "This is now hurting the party and whoever will be the nominee in the fall"?


CLINTON: No, I really can't. I think people have short memories. Primary contests used to last a lot longer. We all remember the great tragedy of Bobby Kennedy being assassinated in June in L.A. My husband didn't wrap up the nomination in 1992 until June. Having a primary contest go through June is nothing particularly unusual.

345. I am not a Hillary fan and will only vote for her if she's the Democratic candidate.
HOWEVER, this whole issue is ridiculous. She clearly meant that Kennedy was still in the primary when he got shot in June, and obviously would have continued the campaign if he hadn't gotten shot, so why should she drop out when June isn't even here yet. I get so tired of this nit-picking, parsing everything ANYONE (except McCain) says. Her words were unfortunate and she probably immediately regretted them. And she apologized later. This wasn't a planned comment. It wasn't in a speech. She was talking to a newspaper. How can we expect our candidates to be adults, when we (and the "media") aren't? This is truly one of the dumbest, trumped up "controversies" we've had yet. Can't wait for the GE <snark>.

349. I've always said butter wouldn't melt in her mouth
How she can utter such an obscene comment with a straight face. How she can say those words...It's just completely beyond me. She is no longer a human being. She has morphed into some sort of cyber-political monster! I hate her. I always knew she made me sick. Now I feel completely vindicated in my total disgust for her. She is a vulture. She is the lowest form of life. There are some things, even if you think them, you just don't say. Does she want a self fulfilling prophecy? First Huckabee and his stupid joke and now this. And I didn't hear a formal apology to Senator Obama in her "regrets".
I bet she doesn't even have the common decency to call him and apologize personally. He must be an excellent judge of character because we see now why he never considered her seriously as a running mate. Just one more example of our next president's impeccable judgment.

Just when her campaign could not have sunk even to the depths that are unprecedented, this allusion about RFK's assassination goes to that place where even the most tasteless swine would not go... except we're talking about a Clinton here.

There is no lower form of scum.

Maybe GE and NBC really got to him. "Hey. You went after Bush's interview. Now you have to bring a Democrat down." It just wasn't Hillary's day, was it? What a miserable nation we've become when a candidate can't say, "I tried to make a point, did it stupidly, and now, regardless of my qualifications, I've been thrown out of the race because no one wants to understand what I was trying to say." AND I DON'T EVEN LIKE HILLARY.

376. The intimidation and murdering of progressive, populist candidates is more...
insidious than just the Clintons or the Republicans. The rot comes from the very core of corrupt and criminal power brokers and corporatists. We are at war with elitists that will stop at nothing to seize, retain, and maintain there power structure. They no longer fear to overtly threaten us. The Medusa shows itself rarely and this is one of those times. We, the People are face to face with the sociopaths and psychopaths that rule us and we are frozen to stone.

381. The reaction to this is way over the top
She made a mistake. She was obviously referencing the late date in which the '68 race was decided - when Bobby was shot the winner of the Dem nomination was still seriously in doubt. Humphrey was busy gathering the "super-delegates" of the time and Gene McCarthy was waging a fierce battle with his young campaign workers and had won several states - if you want an analogy, McCarthy was probably more like Barack than Bobby was.

Hillary is my Senator and I'm sick of her - it's time to end this thing. I'm 100% for Barack and I'm already organizing for him in the GE. But who here truly thinks Hillary was saying she was staying in because Barack might be assassinated? Sure, sure. Get real. :eyes:

to make people think she wants an assassination or is even trying to buy one......It is one thing to talk about the possiblity that Obama could be assassinated. I know it went through my mind. He would be the first black president and a lot of our home spun aryan terrorist groups would not like that. It is another thing to say you stay in a race against him because there is a possiblity that he will be killed. If he is assassinated I would hope Gore would get the nomination, otherwise too many people would be wondering if Clinton hadn't hired the hit herself.

Ive heard her make that argument before, Mr. Kennedy said, speaking on his cell phone as he drove to the family compound in Hyannis for the holiday weekend. It sounds like she was invoking a familiar historical circumstance in support of her argument for continuing her campaign. . . . is support of Mrs. Clinton has not wavered.
More from RFK, Jr.:

I have heard her make this reference before, also citing her husband's 1992 race, both of which were hard fought through June. I understand how highly charged the atmosphere is, but I think it is a mistake for people to take offense."

...for her to rip the mask off her face at her next press conference to reveal Ann Coulter. "Fools! I have tried to sabotage your primary! And I would have gotten away with it too, if it hadn't been for you meddling progressives!" Then we find the real HRC bound and gagged in Coulter's basement, where she's been since a week before the California primary.
