It was only a matter of time before someone notices that Hillary thought the very same things that Obama is now getting battered over; the “unfortunate (from a Clinton perspective) proclivity to vote on life-style rather than economic issues”
What hypocrisy and political opportunism. She disgusts me.
I have been in meetings with the Clintons and their advisors where very clinical things were said in a very-detached tone about unwillingness of working class voters to trust government — and Bill Clinton — and about their unfortunate (from a Clinton perspective) proclivity to vote on life-style rather than economic issues. To see Hillary going absolutely over the top to smash Obama for making clearly more humanly sympathetic observations in this vein, is just amazing. Even more so to see her pretending to be a gun-toting non-elite. Give us a break!
Also, on the “elitist” charge:
This has to be one of the few times in U.S. political history when a multi-millionaire has accused a much less wealthy fellow public servant, a person of the same party and views who made much less lucrative career choices, of “elitism”! (I won’t say the only time, because U.S. political history is full of absurdities of this sort.) In a way, it is funny — and it may not be long before the jokes start.
The attention span of those who give credence to the “elitist”
charges against Obama, coming from someone who makes 100 times more than the one they are accusing. Utterly amazing that this passes mustard with anyone.
