Samantha Power, one of Barack Obama’s foreign policy advisors, resigned because she let it slip “off the record” to The Scotsman that Hillary Clinton’s “a monster…who will stoop to anything.”
The Scotsman promptly made it a headline.
Hillary whipped another poor, innocent victim card from her sleeve and said the incident “raises disturbing questions about what the real planning and policy positions inside the Obama campaign happen to be.”
Hey Pot, do I hear the Kettle calling you black?
Then Clinton’s people quickly sent out a fund-raising e-mail, claiming its purpose was to send Obama the message that “there is a price to this kind of attack politics.”
If so, it’s no wonder Obama’s mopping the floor with Hillary in campaign contributions.
We’ve seen soft, misty Hillary; scolding, “Shame on you, Barack Obama” Hillary; and jubilant Hillary when she broke Obama’s 11-state winning streak by taking Texas, Ohio, and, oh yes, insignificant Rhode Island.
Hillary as the underdog raises nastiness to an art form. She pounds Obama for “cheating,” but what did she do when she caught her own husband doing it? Make excuses for him and try to redirect indignation to some “vast, right-wing conspiracy.”
I’m sad to say that Hillary’s campaign tactics show she’s just as crooked as anybody and her presidency would be dirty business as usual.
In the face of all this, Obama has remained unflappable, demonstrating through his behavior that it takes more than the Clinton sleaze machine running full-speed to make him lose his cool.
With the Clintons, the ends always seem to justify the means. But that’s the same kind of thinking George Bush used to invade Iraq. Won’t humans ever learn?
