While on the campaign stump trying to impress low income rural Pennsylvanians that she, Hillary Clinton, the $109 Million Dollar Woman (only twice as old as Jamie Somers), knows what it's like to feel their pain! Come on, Hillary, your hubby already tried that one.
In fact, Hillary, let's be fair. Let's examine statements made by Bill Clinton on the same topic -- uttered while he was running for president in 1991:
"The reason (George H. W. Bush's tactic) works so well now is that you have all these economically insecure white people who are scared to death," Clinton was quoted saying by the Los Angeles Times in September 1991.
A couple months later, Joe Klein, writing for the Sunday Times, reported that Bill Clinton made the following remarks:
"You know, he [Bush] wants to divide us over race. I'm from the South. I understand this. This quota deal they're gonna pull in the next election is the same old scam they've been pulling on us for decade after decade after decade. When their economic policies fail, when the country's coming apart rather than coming together, what do they do? They find the most economically insecure white men and scare the living daylights out of them. They know if they can keep us looking at each other across a racial divide, if I can look at Bobby Rush and think, Bobby wants my job, my promotion, then neither of us can look at George Bush and say, 'What happened to everybody's job? What happened to everybody's income? What ... have ... you ... done ... to ... our ... country?'"
Now, as I watch pathetic Lou Dobbs and Casper Milquetoast, closet reactionary David Gregory on the Clinton News Network and MSNBC (look at our lone liberal, Olbermann -- aren't we progressive!), they are accusing Obama of being a racist. Football Head Scarborough is talking about how all this evidence is piling up and Gregory, who suffers from delusions of adequacy, is now quoting Kristol! The media is TRYING TO CONTROL THIS ELECTION BY CREATING A HUGE STIR AGAINST OBAMA THAT DOES NOT EXIST! Gregory is a lowlife who does not deserve to have a lead role on any channel. He is O'Reilly on MSNBC.
Rachel Maddow, their resident liberal guest, now is speaking up and saying that this is a non-issue that will only interest the voters if the media continues to press it.
So, as the media continues to hit Obama on his choice of words and is now calling him a racist and worse, let's hit back. Did you see Hillary Clinton put down that beer followed by a whisky chaser? She obviously had played that game before. How often and when? Does she drink? How often and what? The American people deserve to know! We don't need a 60-year old post-menopausal closet drinker in the White House -- we already have one!
