AND NOW THERE SURFACES a chilling, documented account of Hillary Clinton’s propensities when she served on the Watergate Committee at age 27.
AP REPORTS that Obama is now 49 delegates away from the nomination with the addition of two superdelegates yesterday from Hawaii.
Clinton + FOX + Denial + Absurdity. My headline and the headline on the following excerpt from the Washington Post blog says it all. It was on FOX that the increasingly absurd Terry McAuliffe delivered the screed that Hillary’s utterly understandable double entendre RFK reference was the fault of the Barack Obama campaign.
To see how absurd this is, please read my Hillary Clinton’s Assassination Speak.
The ripple effect of Clinton’s initial remarks was also played out on FOX. See Secret Service Notified of FOX Threat.
The pathological denial pervading the Clinton camp is part of an effort to stall the end of this primary contest as long as possible.
It is shameless and culpability cannot be laid to the Obama campaign. Barack’s response was charitable. The Clinton Camp’s response is a shameful absurdity. He did nothing to stoke any flames. That flame was lit by the Senator in five seconds of revelatory speech. It is being stoked by MSM attention, now being led Wright-like, by FOX.
It is possible now that Barack will gain the superdelegates needed to hit 2025 by the 31st. Sending one more message to Howard Wolfson, Terry McAuliffe and Hillary Clinton, et al, that this is over.
Clinton Camp Stokes RFK Flap by Blaming Obama
By Zachary A. Goldfarb
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign accused Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign of fanning a controversy over her describing the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy late in the 1968 Democratic primary as one reason she is continuing to run for the presidency.
“The Obama campaign … tried to take these words out of context,” Clinton campaign chairman Terence R. McAuliffe said on “Fox News Sunday.” “She was making a point merely about the time line.”
The issue is particularly sensitive given longstanding concerns about Obama’s safety as a presidential candidate. (He first received Secret Service protection last May.) The Obama campaign called Clinton’s words unfortunate and circulated a TV commentary criticizing them, although Obama himself said Saturday that he took Clinton at her word that she meant no harm.
Hours after mentioning Kennedy’s assassination, Clinton said, “I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation, and particularly for the Kennedy family, was in any way offensive.”
Obama senior strategist David Axelrod dodged questions about why the campaign was still circulating commentaries criticizing Clinton even after suggesting it wants to move beyond the controversy.
“We’re beyond that issue now, so certainly we’re not trying to stir the issue up,” Axelrod said.
Asked if Clinton has personally called Obama to apologize for the reference, McAuliffe said she has not, “nor should she.” He added, “Let’s be clear. This had nothing to with Senator Obama or his campaign.”
Finally, read the whole story at the source link above and then the comments. They will demonstrate conclusively that those of us who favor Barack have no desire to fan any flames. Only some hope that a campaign based on decency and reason can be spared further insults by the Clinton camp and move on to reclaim and bring to fruition its original purpose.
