"We've had a red phone moment. It was the decision to invade Iraq. And Senator Clinton gave the wrong answer.”—Senator Barack Obama
Tested and Ready?
Senator Hillary Clinton has been first Lady of Arkansas and first Lady of the United States of America which one of these non-elected, non-political designations gives her the ability to answer the emergency “red” phone in the Whitehouse?
This ad is so ridiculous that it makes “Saturday Night Live” look like the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. (which may be as ridiculous as SNL)
Another Frat boy plan of the Clinton campaign that has gone terribly awry! What was the Clinton campaign thinking just after introducing the “Picture”? A picture of Sen. Obama in what was an obvious attempt to invoke a 1000 words of innuendo, and to link Obama with some urban legend myth that he is a closet Muslim.
That coupled with what Republicans recently unleashed which Michele Obama characterized as the ultimate fear bomb, “Hussein” Sen. Obama’s middle name, the fear mongers are out in full strength.
If stunts like this ad are indicative of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s experience and judgment then that makes it a foregone conclusion that Sen. Clinton didn’t learn an awful lot about the American people or how to govern in her stint in the White house as first Lady.
As Senator Obama so adroitly states, "The question is not about picking up the phone. The question is: What kind of judgment will you make when you answer?"
This is one time that I agree with former president Bill Clinton when he said in his 1992 campaign for Governor of Arkansas,
``This election is a race between hope and fear, between division and community, between responsibility and blame, between whether we have the courage to change, to stay young forever, or whether we stay with the comfort of the status quo."—Bill Clinton 1992 Arkanas gubernatorial Campaign
Only this time it’s the Clinton’s who are on the side of fear and status quo!
Oh! And here’s a Clinton law of politics told by none other than Bill Clinton himself.
