Clinton and the press [UPDATED) - {Hillary now knows how GOP feels}

Clinton and the press [UPDATED]

Clinton's communications director, Howard Wolfson, delivered some really heated criticism of the press on a conference call just now.

Halperin has audio, and here's a transcript.

I think it is true that every time the Obama campaign in this campaign has attacked Senator Clinton in the worst kind of personal ways, attacked her veracity, attacked her credibility, said that she would say or do anything to get elected, the press has largely applauded him. When we have attempted to make contrasts with Senator Obama, we have been criticized for it.

That is a fact of life that we labor under.

And so I reject the notion that Senator Clinton has been engaged in this sort of seriatim attacks on Senator Obama. I think Senator Obama's entire campaign against Senator Clinton is negative. I think he has run against her as the status quo. He has essentially called her divisive. He has called her untruthful. He has quesitoned her credibility. He has said she will do or say anything to get elected. If that's not negative, I don't know what is.

Total meltdown now.

The Clinton camp has finally learned what it means to be a Republican against the MSM media onslaught of hypocrisy and double standards.

This is proof that God exists.

I never thought I’d say this, but I’ve actually been feeling sympathy for Hillary lately. It’s as if she’s trying to stand before the screaming teens in 1964 and turn back Beatlemania. There is little she can do, and the press has found a more favored favorite and she is getting some unfair treatment now.

I’d rather Hillary win the Dem. nomination than Obama. I think she’s less extreme than he is, and would be more sensible on many issues.

All in all, the three least attractive potential presidents in my memory.

LOL Poooor Hillary no ‘vast right wing conspiracy’ her own liberals are turning their collective backs upon her.... Wolfson here is a hint, have Hillary watch herself, the bobbing head, pointing finger and “HEAVEN” help US screech that comes out of her ugly mouth. Enough to send even the night time bugs to their collective corners.

After they shred each other, yes.

It’s a sweet irony indeed.

Having said that, I expect the veracity of MSM’s onslaught against Republican Party will triple what we see now against Hillary. It will be a gagfest, no criticism of Obama will be allowed, every “unfortunate” info will be roundly dismissed as “nothing there”, any republican candidate will be harassed, commi-style agitprop will run rampant, etc and so forth.

They already doing everything to block via FEC McCain’s access to financing. It’s only the beginning (and the NYT fiasco is just a blip).

All of the nasty things he’s saying about her are true, and all of the nasty things Herself, the Evil and Wicked, says about him are true.

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING!

No quite yet. She has not lost any election attempt yet. But maybe come summer she WILL know what it like to have the MSM dump on you producing an undesirable outcome.

Oh, the little ironies of life. My husband and I have been discussing this for weeks. The Clintons must be in a state of confusion. They can no longer count on what have been their mainstays.

Wow Howie Wolfson certainly can make Obama sound both wise and on-target. No wonder the Clintonistas are losing.

Keep her in it, so we can win it.

Cross over in Texas and Ohio.

Yes and I have been saving up all the cliched phrases that come to mind for this moment of joy.

Things like:
rudderless ship of a campaign
spousal albatross
Biting the hand that feeds you

(snort) Hillary will NEVER know how anyone else feels! She never puts herself in another pair of shoes but her own. She’s the most egotistical, self-centered woman I’ve ever seen.
