Skip to comments.Clinton steps up attacks on Obama
Posted on 01/06/2008 12:20:55 PM PST by DBCJR
Clinton launched a searing attack on surging rival Barack Obama after the thumping win in Iowa that bolstered the idea that America is receptive to electing its first black president. ...
Polls have indicated the vast majority of Americans say they would support a black candidate .
A Gallup survey conducted in early 2007 found only 6 percent of men and 5 percent of women said they would not vote for a black presidential candidate -- a seismic political shift from 50 years ago, when more than half of those surveyed felt that way.
Clinton, aspiring to be the first female US president, used a debate, three days before the New Hampshire primary, to suggest that Obama had dumped previous positions on key issues for political gain.
Polls showed Obama had obliterated Clintons lead in New Hampshire.
He could have a pretty good debate with himself, Clinton said, trying to pin the flip-flop tag on Obama, ...
Obama hit back at Clinton and accused her of misrepresenting his policies.
What I think is important that we dont do is try to distort each others records as election day approaches here in New Hampshire, .
New polls showed the effect of Obamas Iowa momentum.
In a CNN/WMUR survey, Obama and Clinton were locked up on 33 percent of likely primary voters. Obama was up four points from a similar poll in late December and Clinton was down one.
Another poll, by the Concord Monitor newspaper, had Obama with a slender one-point lead
Republicans also took aim at Obama... Noting Obamas appeal as an agent for change, Giuliani questioned his level of experience and said his policy proposals would lead to higher taxes and a premature US withdrawal from Iraq.
...Huckabee, ... was alone in defending Obama.

I was curous whether clinton is cooked if she loses New Hampshire.
The lib on lib fire that the rest of the primaries are going to create are going to get interesting.
Clintoon has a fine line to walk regarding Obama. If she gets to out of line she might upset the black voters that now support her. Then for sure it will be curtains.
I think Oprah will have 80% of Clinton’s black voters peeled off by crunchtime.
Clinton steps up attacks on Obama...
the piaps is trying to get b. hussein back on the plantation...
and ya know what I’m talkin about!!!!
One of the themes of Hillary’s life is “The victim of betrayal.” She has been continuously betrayed by Bill, The MSM has left her for another. The under 30 crowd and women have left her. Blacks are leaving her by the droves. The Oprah effect was not so much her influence on votes, but drawing the crowds to hear this young, charismatic black man. Betrayal fumes her ire. She has handled it remarkably at times, and had melt downs at other times. Wonder what will happen?
This debacle - that is supposed to be our search for a President, is, in truth, the manifestation of a society bereft of Godliness, looking for a Messiah.
Wot a bunch of nincompooops!
JC Watts comes to mind.
Hillary Dillary Dock -the clock fell off the wall.....
Senator Clinton wil not drop out of the race. She has many super delegates bought and paid for. The RAT convention will be very interesting.
The people I know who have been backing Clinton are turning away from her — and they’re diehards - she’s finished.
Is Herself, the Cold and Joyless, on the way to self-immolation? Oh, Lord, I hope so.
Herself has caused a dreadful imbalance in the force, and the only thing that can help in the short term to restore the delicate and precise operation of the universe is to remove Herself as a player of any significance.
As far as trying to build up momentum, Herself has made the act so much more difficult by letting the wheels come off her Juggernaut. Herself is not stopped yet, but the next hill will be much harder to climb.
I wonder if those 6% of men would vote for a woman? That might even be a higher percentage...
No. She isn’t/He is. He’s fine. Yes/No. Yes.
Hillary will win the nomination.
What? Bubba wearing blue dress?
the evil witch is mad! good. she will cook her own goose. everyone will see what a wicked vicious witch she is.
Somehow, I had always imagined that the first American of African descent elected to the US Presidency would have been a Republican, which would have brought the issue of the Civil War to a full circle and closed.
more she yaps, more barf effect
He could have a pretty good debate with himself, Clinton said
Actually either does sincerity. Guess she's just an unbecoming person.
All this time, I thought New Hampshire was holding a Primary, not the election. Who knew??
Hillary,child of the 60's, is going to attack him over drugs? All he has to do is claim ", I didn't inhale."
I suspect most liberals admire his muslim credentials, he'll be able to relate to his fellows .
What about her husband’s “nose like a vacuum cleaner?”
I think most people would overlook any youthful drug use by Obama. For crying out loud, Gary Aldrich stated that a huge number of Clinton’s staff couldn’t obtain security clearances due to recent drug use.
What policies. All he has is talking points with no substance. What do they expect from an empty headed liberal nitwit with a liberal educational brainwashing.
How could we allow a such really mean person like Hillbillary with the reins of power on the phone with the leaders of the world? It just won’t work.
Would have LOVED JC Watts to run for President! Where did he go? Did he get disgusted by the Republican elitists?
So what’s your point?
You nailed that to the wall!
She already attacked him on that about a month ago. His reply was, to paraphrase; "I did inhale. I thought that was the point."
LOL. As if you don’t know.
Not really. Huckster’s comments could be used two ways.
What’s the other way?
A rare lucid thought that found a brain cell;)
**Would have LOVED JC Watts to run for President! Where did he go?Did he get disgusted by the Republican elitists?**
Condaleeza Rice, Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes, Michael Steele, Colin Powell??
What are people thinking? Or is "thinking" an oxymoron in politics?
****What are people thinking? Or is “thinking” an oxymoron in politics?****
We are NOT thinking - we are sucking *celebrity driven*
pre-digested propaganda through a tube attached to the TV.
Celebrity is the ability to project character where none exists.
I didn’t think Clinton had any black voter support once Oprah endorsed Obama.
He also has the support of a large female block who worship at the altar of Oprah and do all that she says.
I think drug use is the least of our worries about his “past life.”
“bolstered the idea that America is receptive to electing its first black president.”
Uh, wasn’t this a PRIMARY, with Hussein NObomba gathering a grand total of 38%?
***How could we allow a such really mean person like Hillbillary with the reins of power on the phone with the leaders of the world? It just wont work.***
Truly - you have made the best case for Hellary’s campaign!
She’ll shiv Chavez.
She’ll fry the French.
She’ll crucify Karzai.
She’ll p*ssy whip Putin.
She’ll massacre Musharif.
and she’ll amputate Armadinajad.
We need her!!!!!!!!!!!!
You better give that brain cell a massage. That’s two direct hits in one evening. Protect it. Nurture it. Feed it the best food you can get. It may be the last functioning brain cell on the planet. If it were mine I bet it would keep me from logging off to go watch the debate right now. ;^)
Must be the Red Bull;)
or just regular bull.
Take care and give joy - BBL;)
“What policies. All he has is talking points with no substance. What do they expect from an empty headed liberal nitwit with a liberal educational brainwashing.”
There was a great swell of under 30 turn-out in Iowa, unprecedented. I think a generation is emerging where “change” is a magic word for young people. Ther doesn’t have to be substance to it. No matter what side of the aisle is in power, as they see it, everything remains the same. It is a matter of perception to a generation that was raised on Nintendo, the push of a button stimulation gratification on command. It is the “Do something different, ANYTHING as long as it is different” mindset. Substance requires more thought than immediate gratification response is willing to digest..
