Hillary Spoofs Obama

You saw it here first.

This is the funniest damn thing I have ever seen a candidate do.

In Rhode Island only hours ago Hillary  unmasked Obama in a spoof that had people laughing so hard they were in the aisles.

Here it is:

Hillary is going unhinged

Not very presidential.

Thursday night she was so "proud to be on this stage with Obama."

Yesterday she acted surprised at the Obama campaign distributing a flier that has been around for several weeks. I do remember reading about the lack of communication within her campaign, so maybe that explains it.

Now this....

Oh yeah, that's right...

Hillary is supposed to be "cold" and "calculating", so she can't be a human being. But when she does show her human side, suddenly she's "unhinged" and "bitchy". My goodness, you O'drama folks are really showing your true colors!

Re: Oh yeah, that's right...

Her supporters laughed at a rally?  That is hard to do.  You guys laugh it up as most of the undecideds run to Obama now.  She just clinched it for Obama, the race is over March 4th.  Let's just hope she leaves without making too much of a scene ruining the chances of the next viable female candidate.

Re: Oh yeah, that's right...

I assure you that if March 4th has been "clinched" as you say it is November will be clinched for McCain as Hillary supporters run away from Obama.

I don't mean that we will vote for McCain, but he will succeed becuase of our choosing not to vote.

Re: Oh yeah, that's right...

That goes both ways.  Clinton isn't exactly making friends with Obama supporters right now.   I'll vote for her, because I don't want four years of McCain, but when I'm in the booth, I'll think about how her campaign insulted my state and the type of person I am.

Re: Whatever happens, will be what happens..

The NYT nuclear article is discredited line by line on the fact check part of the Obama website.  But, I can summarize by pointing out that HRC only praised and signed on to the bill after it was watered down.

Re: Whatever happens, will be what happens..

Wow, the Obama website discredited it? I guess if it was discredited on the Obama fact check site then we should all totally ignore Obama and Axelrod's association with Excelon (and yes, I know about Mark Penn's association through his business). Face it, Obama is not above politics. He's so political and so part of the game. Sorry to disillusion you.

Oh come on, what did you expect his website to do, confirm that he sold out his constituents on that leak? Of course he will deny, deny, deny. He's another hack politician who sells out, but has a good act that could get him over on people.

It doesn't really surprise me that people would be that naive, after all, there are still people who look up to George W Bush.

I understand your feeling. There are many Hillary supporters who feel just as you do. If BO wins the nomination he won't win in November and Hillary will be in a good position to run again in 4 years.

Not to me it didn't. Made her look human. Like someone who though she might take a swipe at taking up for her self.  Wait. We are talkin about the same clip. The one where she talks about the angels and heaven opening up. And then ends up saying she just been around too long. Something about living in the real world. That one. Mercy that's bad. Heck the Republican's called her husband liar in thief when he was in office. She kept her chin up. AND remember how EVERYONE IN THE WORLD knew about that blue dress AND they made that photo of Hil and Bill and Chelsea walking hand in hand. The comments about her unfaithful husband and how folks were taking bets about what she was really thinking in that photo. She didn't lose it then. Now I'm sorry but that is on tough woman. I'm not sure I'd of been so charitible. LOL And to think Obama is supposed to be upset about angels and heaven and reality checks. I thought she was kind of mild myself. If she really let loose. I don't think the man would be standing.

Re: She's simply spoofing his speeches ...

"I think she's been way too nice to Obama. This was mild - the only reason she's holding back..is the misogynistic males and women out there who will call her names."

I don't think there is anything Hillary Clinton hasn't been called, and doubt she could care less what they say. She doesn't read negative articles, she just stays focused on the positive and getting her work done. Every a--hole has an opinion, and she knows it.

I think she has held back because she hasn't wanted to hurt the Democratic Party, if he is the nominee. My sense is that he crossed a line by reissuing those mailers in Ohio after she had already called him on it elsewhere, and the health care issue is very close to her heart. She thinks he is really doing actual harm to Progressive Democratic values by attacking universal health care. She doesn't want the values of the party destroyed just so Obama can win a nomination. If he won fairly that is one thing, but if he wins by sacrificing our chances to get universal health care, and demonizing mandates, the only politically feasible way to get there, she finds that unacceptable.

Everyone has a line they don't want crossed where an action really violates one's inner sense of right and wrong. He went over that line. There is a point where you just cannot stay quiet about a real violation. If you don't say something to object you lose your own self respect.

Re: Hillary is going unhinged

Highgrade get down off of your high horse.

Is it because his message is otherwise too empty to stand on its own merits that he needs to attack Hillary's plans? And that's only a zith of what this high and mighty, self righteous candidate has done.

Re: Hillary is going unhinged

Hey, I will readily admit that the mailers are tough politically. But Hillary herself has acknowledged that the insurance is mandated and may be paid for through wage garnishments etc. I think the reason it took so long to admit is that she realized that it was a political liability. The reason I say she is unhinged is that these mailers have been around for a while but she acts as though she just became aware of them. Not only that, but the reporting is suggesting that there is a clear split within her campaign as to the strategy going forward. Grunwald and Wolfson are urging her to not be so negative because of their fear for her legacy. Penn is urging all out war. I don't understand how a candidate as "experienced" is willing to take two apparently diametrically opposed strategies only two days apart. It sounds like she is getting very desperate and somewhat irrational.    

The fact of the matter is that Obama's campaign, naively in my opinion, thought they were going to be able to run a campaign strictly on the issues without negative ads etc. It is widely known that his advisors wanted to go very hard at Hillary from the very beginning, and that he always resisted. Let's face the facts - the Clinton's past, and even some of the unreeported issues from 2000 onward, is fertile ground for any political opponent to take advantage of. It wasn't until South Carolina that the tenor of this campaign began to get ugly.

by highgrade 2008-02-24 01:37PM | 0 recs
Re: Hillary is going unhinged

Really, it wasn't until South Carolina? What were the 527's that were running on behalf of Obama in Nevada -- Birthday messages for Hillary? We've made no bones about our position on 527's. Obama, on the other had, has had two oposing views -- he's opposed them when they attack him and is silent when they support him. And what about Michelle Obama's snarky comment about someone who can't keep their own house in order not being able to keep the White House in order. When called on it, she said she was talking about herself, oh but she's the spouse so I suppose she shouldn't be held accountable for her comments. And what about Axelrod saying that Hillary was responsible for Benazir Bhutto's assasination or the comments by the Obama campaign about Hillary being D-Punjab? All excusable since they are others speaking on his behalf I suppose. At what point does this candidate take responsibility? Incidentally, I find it amusing that you would take the "reporting" on the campaign as gospel. It's seems, based on what I see 24/7, that it's a steady diet of Anti-Hillary bashing and efforts to influence voters and interpret the news for them. But I guess when it's not anti-Obama, it must be fact.

by Sabrina Duncan 2008-02-24 02:02PM | 0 recs
Thoughts

You know Axelrod was not suggesting she was responsible - you're taking the easy way out to try and prove a point. Everything he said was an undeniable fact. Clinton voted for Iraq. Iraq has diverted our attention from other problem areas. Al Qaeda is resurgent on the border areas b/c we have focused on Iraq.

Secondly, the Punjab comment was in reaction to Senator Clinton saying "I can certainly run for the Senate seat in Punjab and win easily," she is quoted as saying." He was talking about how much support she was getting from companies that are outsourcing jobs to India. I don't see how this is more offensive to you or Indian-Americans, then when for instance Hillary joked that Ghandi used to run a 7-11 in St. Louis!

Regarding Michelle Obama's comments, I agree they were not in good taste and the campaign should have apologized.

Finally, I am not saying that Clinton shouldn't be going all out in the final days - that is her prerogative. I am only saying that she is risking a lot of goodwill from her final debate performance. At this point, considering the polls, and the mathematics, the chances of her winning this nomination are essentially nil. What is the marginal benefit of these outbursts?

No, her chances are not essentially nil. It figures that you would say that given the pettiness of his campaign.

Re: Hillary is going unhinged

Actually I think that the idea that there is a large scale coordinated effort on the part of Republicans to fix the democratic primary is verging on tin hat material. The fact that you refer to it as if it is undeniable fact makes me worry for you.

Has had tremendous support amongst several very important segments of the "bread and butter" Democratic vote, most notably black voters and well educated voters.  He is now increasingly winning larger and larger percentages of other key blocks of the Democratic party, eating into Hillary's base.  

Besides, even if half of the Republicans and independents who vote for him in the primary abandon him in the general, he will get a much larger percentage of that vote than Hillary will. So, the only chance that Obama does worse agains John McCain's than Hillary does, is that Hillary supporters who blame Republicans for costing her the primary decide to vote for McCain in some sort of bizarre sort of psychological self flagellation.

Rush suggested you should print it out and tape it to the tv so that every time you heard Clinton talk you could remind yourself, that according to Rush, Bill Clinton was a big, fat liar.

The MSM is going to slant their coverage in Obama's favor, no matter what she does. I laughed out loud at this speech, and I hope she keeps it up.

Satire? Isn't that for the "latte liberals?" The only thing interesting here, is that the folks that already like her think this is great. It reminds everyone else - also known as the majority - why they don't like her. The game is not about getting cheers from your base, it's about persuading the undecideds. This performance will decidedly fail that mission. The Clinton campaign misses again. Maybe she needs to truck Bill in again.

(I'm not talking delegates I'm talking votes and including WA, FL and MI as they did hold primary votes where people got to actually cast a ballot regardless of whether they were working, or sick, or elderly.)

If you look at and count voters -- Hillary has the majority support.

However, if you've been reading David Brooks for the past several months and listening to him, which I guess you haven't, you've heard him talk about his adulation for Obama. Everyone was shocked when Brook starting talking about how experience matters and therefore HRC was a stronger Dem candidate. And then he did a 180. He's been promoting Obama for a long time. Apparently you didn't hear his "insightful" commentary about NH voters on the eve of the NH primary. Don't be like your sloppy, lazy-ass candidate; do your homework.

Re: It's 4th down and 60 ...

They did push the phony narrative that Hillary's campaign was race-baiting.  That's about as rough a smear as their is in a Democratic Primary, although you are right that he didn't mock her.

Oh wait, he did also sneeringly say, "you're likable enough, Hillary."  That's rude, but I guess not mocking.

And Michelle said something like, "if she can't run her own house, how can she run the White House.".  That, I think, is mocking.

I don't think Hillary is above Obama on this stuff, but I do take offense at the Obamafile-fed narrative that Hillary has somehow taken the low road or been worse than Obama.

Political reporters have long pretended that the skills needed to win a campaign shed light on how someone would be as President.

But George W. Bush's campaign and Presidency conclusively disproved that, which is why one of the most consistent media criticisms on the left has been about this kind of reporting.

We shouldn't now buy into that narrative just because it can be used to score cheap political points against the candidate we don't prefer.

Re: It's 4th down and 60 ...

Do you think it is a positive sign that HRC hasn't been able to manage her campaign?  She hired and overpaid Mark Penn, it's hard to make a worse decision than that.  Although she did support Morris in the White House, so I guess she has done worse than Penn. http://www.buzzflash.com/articles/editor blog/034

Beyond her campaign her only other major task was health care.  That died because she was secretive and wouldn't work with other Democrats.

And I suppose you think it is an advantage that after law school she failed the bar exam in DC.  You probably think it is a bad sign that BHO was President of the Harvard Law Review.

3) It's  not true that her only major task was the 93 health care reform effort that failed.  That's just a smear against her.  Heck, on health care alone, she regrouped and played a major role in creating SCHIP.  Or are you going to tell me that you aren't a supporter of SCHIP?

Let's get real

I'm glad Hillary is getting real with voters. This "movement" borders on fanaticism.

These are real quotes:

"This is bigger than Kennedy. . . . This is the New Testament." | "I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event."
-- Chris Matthews

"Obama has the capacity to summon heroic forces from the spiritual depths of ordinary citizens and to unleash therefrom a symphonic chorus of unique creative acts whose common purpose is to tame the soul and alleviate the great challenges facing mankind."
-- Gerald Campbell

"We're here to evolve to a higher plane . . . he is an evolved leader . . . [he] has an ear for eloquence and a Tongue dipped in the Unvarnished Truth."
-- Oprah Winfrey

"I would characterize the Senate race as being a race where Obama was, let's say, blessed and highly favored. That's not routine. There's something else going on. I think that Obama, his election to the Senate, was divinely ordered. . . . I know that that was God's plan."

He mocks the voters by pretending that he showed "judgement" by giving a politically smart speech against the war in 2002 at an anti-war rally in a liberal district where he was running for State Senate and than not exhibiting any other leadership in his role as US Senate. He mocks the voters when he says that he is for unity and a new brand of politics when he engages in the same brand of politics that he claims he decries. He mocks the voters when he says his experience when he was living in Indoenisia when he was 4 years old is foreign policy experience befitting the US Commander of Chief. He mocks the voters when he says his 17 year association with Tony Rezko was little more than a bone headed mistake.

These always work so well to promote a backlash, particularly among independent voters.  (psst...Ohio is an open primary.)

Re: THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!

Except...because I love my country and love the way Obama has inspired so many people to participate as Democrats...I feel pretty sad that Clinton would take this tack.

Being anti-vision didn't help the first President Bush against a hopeful Bill Clinton.  It was a time, like now, when people wanted change.  

Doesn't she remember 1992?  Does she really want this to be her legacy?

Re: Hillary Spoofs Obama

Cynical, bitter, angry, pessimistic, mocking of those who dare oppose her...

Yup!  That's the Hillary I remember!

I knew the end of that debate had to be a fluke.

"Cynical, bitter, angry, pessimistic, mocking of those who dare oppose her..."

Gosh, get over yourselves. You're really way too obsessive about this, projecting all your disowned inner negativity onto Hillary Clinton. It's sophomoric. There is psychotherapy for this kind of problem.

I thought she was delightfully funny, lighthearted, poking fun at the sanctimoniousness of the Obama religious presentation, which is all this weird savior like showmanship. I'm afraid those of us who are not emotionally vulnerable to his offer to save our souls have a far more irreverent view of him. We don't need him to redeem us, save us or rescue us from an inner sense of emptiness that we don't have. People who participate in life and care deeply about real change and leaving the world a better place do not need emotional rescue by a politician. We don't need him to tell us "we are the change we seek" because we don't "seek" it, we live it first hand.

We might be in a bit better position to evaluate him as a candidate, just a tad more objective. He's probably an talented person who needs to get much more real life experience before becoming president, and needs to get over some of his narcissism to be effective.

Hillary's Willie Horton

If Hillary is the nominee, watch for Willie Horton ads with this story.

The feminist who would be the first woman president made her legal bones as a newcomer in Arkansas by making false claims about an underage woman who was raped and has required years of therapy to recover.

Exactly.

Why the heck was she running for president if she was going to quit. Really.

ah what the hell. It's all one big damn joke.

Who the hell even cares anymore?  Chris Matthews legs are quivering, all of a sudden the Clintons are racists, Teddy Kennedy is a credible senior stateman and sexism is a thing of the past and wasn't all that bad anyway.  The biggest endorsement of the season was Oprah, he hasn't carried one top tier state but Illinois and Obama is going to cruise to the nomination on a cloud of hope and hot air.

The whole damn thing is a farce and Clinton is finally accepting that and having some fun with it.    After the regular guy I'd like to have a beer with president we'll get the cool professor I'd like to get high with president.  Whatever.

Have all the fun you want, Hillary.

Re: Home Run

If you're saying it's time to fire the Mark Penn, I'm sure all progressives (including Obama supporters like me) will agree with you.

If she got rid of him a long time ago I'm sure she'd be better off.

Re: Hillary Spoofs Obama

I can't wait to see her implement this new technique as the President.

She can do mocking impressions of members of congress and world leaders.  Then all politicians and Americans can follow her lead, eventually we'll have a lot of mocking all over the world, it'll be nirvana for many on myDD.

You know there's some folks who think that mocking is better than using the Doctrine of Preemptive strike and invading a country.

see George Bush and ironically Sen. Barak Obama

Re: Hillary Spoofs Obama

HRC also supplements mocking with name calling.

E.g. when she said Putin has no soul.  While this may be arguable, the president of the US needs to show more restraint, especially if they claim to be so experienced.

Re: Hillary Spoofs Obama

dunno sounded like a rhetorical devise not an actual statement of fact. Did you realy read that as Putin hasn't got a soul in religious terms? Literally? If I were a bettin person, that's not a bet I'd want to take.

But Obamabots are spoling it with their hatred.

Yall ever get one of those smeer flyers? I did before a county wide election. Only thing it made me want to do is give it to the guy who was being attacked.

Oh and he won.

I figure if you're going to attack someone you do it to their face. Has about as much chance of being believed as that Elvis reunion tour.

"Magic wand?" Clearly Hillary is a homophobe, calling Barack a fairy or something. I'm surprised the people who figured out that "periodically" was an obvious reference to menstruation must have caught on to that. Right????

Honestly, folks. The shrieking quality of the posting here and at dkos is making you look like the pajama-wearing cheeto-eaters. Get a grip on yourselves. Ur. I'm guessing you're already doing that.
