Hillary Clinton, a Democrat who is “Bush-Cheney Lite”? Watch the video to get the context and exact language of the attack launched by Barrack Obama:
The original debate comment by Senator Obama was memorable enough for it’s content. Then today this blast, aimed directly at Hillary Clinton, was memorable in it’s invective.
Under the circumstance, having been directly insulted, Hillary Clinton’s response seems reasoned and calm.
Barrack Obama has attacked Hillary Clinton with language that is simply the most insulting that one Democrat can use to describe another. ‘Bush-Cheney Lite’. How much more insulting could one Democratic candidate be to another? It’s hard to say. This is change that seems to be one of ‘opportunity’ and desire to create popular applause lines.
Even before this terribly personal attack Obama defended his debate answer with an incredulous statement:
Defending his debate answer earlier Thursday, Obama said, “I’m not afraid to lose the P.R. war to dictators.”
This is a quote worth remembering for it’s simplicity and, frankly, it’s lack of understanding of international diplomacy. Look at our international standing today and you will see the result of losing the ‘P.R. war’ in many quarters.
With the combination of the original comment, the follow up defensive comment and today’s attack on Clinton, I believe that Obama has shown himself to be ill-equipped to deal with the office of the President.
This series of comments and actions has tarnished Obama beyond redemption for me. I often wondered if he was an ’empty shirt’. Now he has given me the answer.
