Pinkerton Suggests Hillary Sent Stephanopoulos Tough Question For Obama
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 09/26/2009 12:53:46 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

When Pres. Obama did the Fox-less Full Ginsburg last week, his toughest moment came when George Stephanopoulos cited Merriam Webster to suggest that PBO's proposal to force people to buy health insurance amounts to a "tax."

Some were surprised that Stephanopoulos would put a Dem president on the spot that way. But appearing on today's Fox News Watch, Jim Pinkerton posited an intriguing provenance for the tough question—none other than . . . Hillary Clinton.

We’re talking about Hillary “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good” Clinton, aren’t we?

Hillary has plenty of experience dealing with word parsing liars.

Through all this Obama health care reform sh**, I have yet to see a comparison with Hillary's old plan....the one that went down in flames.

Starting to seem like perhaps Obama's secret desire is to "castrate the Clintons".

I heard him say that.Hillary sitting behind Obama looked
like she was coming off a two week bender. She’s been made such a fool by Obama that why she doesn’t resign is mystifying.

Maybe Hillary! doesn’t want Obama to succeed in “Healthcare Reform” where she so famously failed. For once HRC and I would be on the same side.

Is this suggesting that George can not think of tough questions all by his lonesome?

Hillary will be challenging Obama in 2012.

She will resign at an stalemate moment with the Messiah.

Perhaps over Israel or Iran. The timing will destroy Obama and his minions ability to raise funds and get re-elected.

Obama is not one of us (American) but Hillary is and will take no prisoners in destroying Obama’s 2012 chances.

Just wait and watch.

By the way hasn’t Hillary been pretty silent this week.......Hmmm you have to wonder why!

Yea, like that wouldn’t ever get back to His Obamaness.

And then he’d strip her of her powers...oh, uh...that’s right...he did already.

Interesting point. The only other real question he asked was during the debates and it came from Sean Hannity.

You are making an interesting prediction. If the stars align in the right way I can see that happening. After all,the last weak dem potus had a primary challenge from teddy K....but if Obozo implodes I can see her actually beating him....then the battle of the babes...HC vs SP !!

Hillary looks like pure hell...the worst she has ever looked. I believe the cause of this is she actually is being sent out to work every day and realizes just how freaking awful it is out there and that Bush wasn’t far off from being 100% straight with everyone.

Remember when Hellary commented on his only giving a speech in 2004
and 0bami came back with the famous....”JUST WORDS, JUST SPEECHES?”

She got under his skin with that one... we need to use those words against him
I’ve not heard anyone use that line.. I thinks its a good one.

Could be. I’m sure that Hillary feels that ACORN played a roll in her primary defeat.

It has always been that. He and Michelle, especially, hate both Clintons. Michelle was the one who nixed the idea of Hillary as VP. He wants to poke Hillary in the eye with his being the ONE who gets health care through, even if his plan if farther to the left of Hillarycare and more draconian in it’s treatment of the elderly and infirmed.

Replacing one inept Communist with another—my take on this.
Both follow Alinsky.

Translation: “We won’t question Obama — We question people who dare to question Obama” I guess they are going to get right on who set up Sarah Palin with Gibson.

No way: George S and James Carville and Rahm have a daily conference call.

Did anybody else notice only George S. asked him tough questions? The Obama administration pre-screens all questions and that the reason why Fox was shut out. They won't comply with that demand.

The ABC interview was a set up to get the questions asked and Obama gave ridiculous answers and it was dropped.

People do you really think George S actually would ask tough questions to his master?
