Here she goes again. Obama makes a thoughtful, perhaps politically inexpedient remark about how the right has been propagandizing working people into “values” voting – an articulate depiction and refreshing to hear (and similar to an argument made by Bill Clinton made during his first run, ironically.) Then the multi-millionaire Hillary turns this on its head, calling Obama a patronizing elitist.
If you haven’t seen Obama’s speech, here’s the part that’s under attack:
Pretty honest stuff. But Hillary twists these important words to score cheap political points, saying that we “don’t need a president who looks down” on workers, who “need a president who stands up for them, who fights for them, who works hard for your futures, your jobs, your families.”
Crikey. This is playground politics of the worst kind. And then to top it off here comes Hillary the sharpshooter, killing every duck in her sights. I bet she’d be great to have a beer with, too. And we know the importance of that criteria when judging presidential candidates.
I do hope the good folks of Pennsylvania recognize the desperation out of the Hillary campaign and put us all out of our misery on April 22 .
