Welcome to the real world, Senator Obama. Those of us who know the competing team you battle for your party's nomination have been pondering when you would finally wake up and face the fact that your rival is a take no prisoners kind of woman. Today I learn of your new weapon, a truth team to the rescue. I have one question for you.
What took you so long?
I know you feel as though you are competing against two Clintons for the nomination and the truth is, you are. Did you forget the entire decade of the 1990's so quickly? Did you forget that when Bill was under scrutiny from voters or the press that Hillary went out there and put the spotlight on herself? She was the one out there saying wacky statements for press coverage. You remember, she's no stand by your man kind of woman, she could have stayed home and just baked cookies and had teas, there's a vast right wing conspiracy out there. Don't you?
Now it is Bill's turn. He promised the wife a presidency after her senate term and by God, he's going to deliver. It's a big part of his legacy, you know. It is his only hope of relevancy in the years to come. He'll have to be taken off the stage kicking and screaming. And pointing a bony finger in your face.
Hillary is counting on you remaining a gentleman and not treating her as an equal. Then she'll get all offended that she's being picked on by the boys. Edwards is just background noise at this point, so it's up to you now. Man up. Put on the cup. They play for keeps.
It's not going to be pretty.
The Clintons are of the opinion that if they repeat statements over and over, the statements become facts. That is why they lie and get away with it. The media in this country anointed Bill as President and continues to be his biggest fan club. They love the guy and think he is all things to all people. Even when he was caught on tape dozing off as he was enthroned on stage for a speech by Martin Luther King, III, the press turns their collective heads. He was crowned the first black president. The press never bothered to look into what would merit that title for a white bubba from Arkansas, but, never mind any of that. Bill Clinton's mentor was Senator Fullbright, a segregationist, old school style. Never mind.
Now you are horning in on the black vote. How dare you. All the surrogates are sent out to make nasty hit and run remarks about you. Andrew Cuomo says you shuck and jive, Bob Kerry uses your middle name, Hussein, in a speech several times, on and on it goes.
Team Clinton was out in full force, blasting the fact that casino workers could caucus on site at their places of business. Until Hillary won, then the issue faded.
Hillary feigns innocence. When Bill is out there going all red faced and ugly, well, what's a girl to do? The question is, if she can't stop him on the campaign trail, how will he be controlled in the White House again? She has no intention to reigning him in. He's following the game plan.
Judicial Watch, a watchdog group in D.C. has succeeded in getting some of the internal papers from the Clinton Presidential Library released to the public. The previously secretive documents from Hillary's National Taskforce on Health Care Reform should be read immediately by you and your team. They speak to Hillary's penchant for meetings uninhibited by sunlight. Even Senator Jay Rockefeller, D-W.VA, contributes a memo with a call to action for a "classic opposition research" team to attack critics of her health care reform plan. "Rockefeller also suggested news organizations are anxious and willing to receive guidance (from the Clinton administration) on how to time and shape the (news) coverage." That from an opinion piece written by Cal Thomas for Townhall.com. So, Rockefeller serves as a form of verification of what conservatives have said for years. The press and media outlets in this country support the left side of the aisle and their agenda.
The memos also acknowledge that the reform plan pushed by Hillary and her people has little chance of success for the country. Didn't matter. It was to be forced on the American people because Hillary knows what is good for you. The memo of Feb. 5, 1993 from Alexis Herman and Mike Lux outlines a plan to develop an "interest group data base" detailing whether or not organizations supported us in the election." "The database would also track personal information about interest group leaders, such as their home phone numbers, addresses, biographies, analysis of credibility in the media, and known relationships with Congress people."
How Nixonian. As Cal Thomas points out, Hillary and the likes of liberals (socialists) like Rockefeller were willing to destroy people who dared to oppose their public policy is telling.
She's the same Hillary today.
If you want this nomination, Senator Obama, the flowery speeches and inspiring slogans aren't going to be enough. Get out there and fight. Tell the truth team to fan out and set your record straight.
What took you so long?
