Hillary: "Shame on you, Barack Obama."

Posted by Teresa at 2:28 PM


We all knew Hillary would eventually start to ramp up her rhetoric as
her campaign depends on what happens in Texas and Ohio on March
4th. But this isn't much of an attack:
CINCINNATI - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday
that a pair of mailings sent to voters by rival Barack Obama's
campaign criticizing her health care plan and trade views are false,
misleading and a betrayal of his pledge to practice a new style of
politics.

"Shame on you, Barack Obama. It is time you ran a campaign
consistent with your messages in public — that's what I expect
from you," Clinton said angrily, waving the mailings in the air.
The premise of her attack is "You're not as nice as you appear because
you are criticizing my policies." I guess the little catch phrases that call
into question Obama's authenticity aren't working so time to attack his
niceness! You know, Sen. Clinton, these claims would go so much more
smoother if you would show some authenticity and some sincere niceness.

Also, I would like to note when she says, "Enough with the speeches and the
big rallies," I have been to one of her events and she's drawing big crowds
also (at least from what experienced). The issue is her campaign just doesn't
have the money to rent out huge arenas like Sen. Obama's campaign does.
If she had the money she would probably do the exact same thing.

On another note: What's up with the Clinton's and their use of the word
'shame' whenever they get upset?

No surprise that once again, Hillary labels any criticism of her as "the politics of personal destruction." As shown in the videos, she and Bill attack the same way, wishing to be back in the 90s when the media would fight for them, rather than criticize them. Since the media spent all those years defending them, they see it as a betrayal that they now criticize them. Hence the condescending, "shame on you" attitude.

WATCH this mash-up of Hillary's press conference made to sound like she's criticizing HER OWN CAMPAIGN.
