“it didn't have to be released to the press. it was the instruction sheet to their campaign staff on what to use against Clinton in SC. If you recall in the deabte where Russert brought this up Obama denied that his campaign had made charges of racism against Clinton. Then Russert confronted Obama with the 4 page memo and Obama then promised the campaign would stop doing it in the future.”

“i don't recall Obama forgiving Don Imus for his racial remarks. He called for him to be fired.

At the same time Obama wouldn't fire McClurkin”

“No relevant difference between Imus and McClurkin? You're reaching to make your point, so it's obviously it's not a meaningful one.”

“his lies about the senate bills were reported right here on huffpo inthe same article as her bosnia lie

Maybe Clinton would have been asked about the Colombia question and Mark Penn in the ABC debate if Obama hadn't taken up so much more time than Clinton did droning on andfumbling through his answers. Yourecall even the moderator pointed out to him at one point that he was taking up so much more time than she was.”

“Politicians always say things that are arguably true or false. We are conditioned to accept that (unfortunately). But the problem with the Bosnia lie, is it goes right to the heart of her argument that she has superior foreign policy experience. So it gets people attention so much when it is exposed that she repeatedly said it and even had a hard time admitting it in the end and then giving a phony excuse, it is just an all around bad situation for her.”

obamasOHangel on Apr 26, 2008 at 07:30:33

“He Bosnia sniper fire lie directly discredits her so-called foreign policy "experience". That's like me applying for a job at a law firm as a partner and listing my experience as having "tried several federal cases" when in fact I was the court reporter in a murder trial.”

“yes, you should hold catholics accountable because the church covered up the behavior of the priests instead of turning them over to the law for punishment. and the only reason they did so was to save their own money. the congregations should have risen up and demanded that the priests involved in the actual abuse and also those involved in the coverup were thrown out of the church and given over to the law for punishment.”

“why is it dangerous for her to get 63% of the white vote, but not dangerous for him to get 90% of the black vote?

why do pollsters ask white voters if race was a factor in their decision and not ask that of black voters?

why is it BAD for Clinton to question Obama's experience to be president or commander in chief without making personal attacks on his character and at the same time it is OK for Obama to attack Clinton directly on her character instead of her policy positions?

Why is it bad for Clinton to lie about Bosnia and OK for Obama to lie about two senate bills he took credit for and had nothing to do with?

Why is Clinton blamed for flag pin questions that she has never asked? Why is Clinton blamed for the questions about Ayers when she didn't bring it up? Why is Clinton blamed for answering a question she was asked by a reporter about what she would do if her pastor said the things Wright said?”

“How do you know they didnt ask AA voters? Did they say they didnt ask AA voters when you have a question you ask it of all voters black or white and they you check their race because then you also ask them their race. SO you see how many of the AA voters say race matters and how many white voters say race matters. They dont just pick out white voters to ask the question to.

I cannot believe how the media is manipulating people. Its really disturbing to me how they shape information and the american public buys without saying wait a minute that doesnt make sense.

“The pollsters asked democratic voters, not whites only: "And 18 percent of Democratic voters said race mattered to them," and that is just the percentage of people who were able to admit it to the pollsters. Rendell said that "his" voters weren't ready for a black candidate, and he seems to be right.

It's bad to question fellow democrat's qualifications as CIC while simultaneously confirming that the republican candidate IS qualified. Its called shite-ing in your own house. Obama questioned her character when his character was attacked by her. You would do the same.

The Bosnia Lie indicates bad character. Being a proven liar not a qualification for our president, no? I can't comment on the bills you speak of. It would help if you provided...some facts.

Was Clinton blamed for the flag pin flap? I missed that. That was a Rove-esque attack by the tired Right. But maybe you're right: maybe Clinton and Rove ARE working together. Why, indeed, did that reporter, the day after the Bosnia Lie broke, conveniently ask a diversionary question about Obama's pastor, whose words were taken utterly out of context, that until then Hillary had stayed away from...hmm

Why has Hillary not been properly and fairly grilled on Mark Penn, or her own husband's 800k relationship to Columbia, or Rendell's deep and very public support for Rev Farrakhan when Hillary has demanded that Obama repudiate a distant endorsement from Rev Farrakhan, with whom Obama doesn't even have a relationship?”

“as I recall the author of this post, Mr Ridley, even said at that time that neither the fairytale comment or the LBJ comment were racist.

This campaign tactic of Obama is one of two reasons why I will never be able to vote for him.

The other reason is because of Obama's acceptance of the anti-gay bigot Rev Donnie McClurkin.

These two reasons are linked together. Obama is willing to bring anti-gay bigots into his big tent because he says it is good to talk to people with differing opinions instead of demonizing them. And at the same time, he used false charges of racism to demonize Clinton.

I have no problem with demonizing actual racism. But, Obama needs to be willing to demonize anti-gay bigotry as well. It is every bit as wrong as racial bigotry even if its roots come from someone's religious beliefs.

When you find out someone you invited to perform on your gospel tour is an anti-gay bigot, you remove them from the tour even if it might offend your religious supporters.”

ErikW65 on Apr 25, 2008 at 23:52:05

“So what if Mr. Ridley didn't find Hill's MLK Jr. gaffe offensive? Did Mr. Ridley fight for civil rights in the 60's? Those are the people Rep. Clyburn said were insulted.

I see you've got no reply to my call for facts on the charge Obama played the race card, so you've changed the subject to McClurkin, in a false segway about "demonizing racism." That's not what Obama did. He forgave the sinner, and condemned the sin. Nothing was "demonized" by Obama!”

“you mean her historically accurate statement about LBJ's role in getting civil rights legislation passed that was used to falsely accuse her of dissing MLK?

And then it turned into Ted Kennedy endorsing Obama because he was upset that Clinton didn't mention JFK's role in civil rights at the same time.

The Obama campaign even accused the Clinton campaign of racism when in NH Shaheen talked about Obama's past drug use. When in fact in previous elections people talked about Bil Clinton's drug use and GW's drug and alcohol use without causing any trouble. Apparently it is just black candidates drug use you can't talk about.

Here is the discussion from HuffPo of just how the Obama campaign used false accusationsof racism againt Clinton to erode her support in the black community for the SC primary.

It is what Bill Clinton was talking about earlier this week when he said Obama played the race card against him and their campaign memos proved it.

“Michelle Obama misrepresented Bill's fairytale comment on the campaign trail herself.

The fact that Clyburn considered a historically accurate statement by Hillary about the LBJ role in getting civil rights legislation passed to be an insult to MLK doesn't make it so.

The fact that Obama may not have made the charges himself doesn't mean his surrogates or his campaign didn't do it for him.

Do you recall the debate where Tim Russert held up 4 pages of memos from the Obama campaign explaining to his campaign supporters and staff just how to use the "race" issue to their advantage?”

ErikW65 on Apr 26, 2008 at 00:05:06

“Not released to the press, and the memo only summarized the various surrogate race-baiting attacks like "Shuckin' and Jivin'" and the Shaheen comment, which he was fired for.

“She was asked what she thought about his speech on race and said she hadn't heard it. Nor has she gone back and listened to and commented on it. As if it were nothing.

She may not have personnally said he was unpatriotic but neither did she defend a fellow democrat.

Obama has been gracious. He has defended her. He has been real and honest. Hillary said something like "what should I do, stay home and bake cookies?" Obama said that she was called elitist for that, but that she was obviously not elitist--it was just a silly attack that was obviously not true--he knew better and had not problem saying so.

She does not deserve my vote. She does not deserve your vote either. She cares only about herself and her own image, and like any other bully she can only feel good about herself by tearing others down.”

“John Kerry's patriotism to America was never questioned. Everyone respected the fact that he was a veteran and most recognized him as a war hero. What was questioned and "swift-boated" were his actions in Vietnam and his protest of the Vietnam War, especially when he spoke before congress. Senator Obama has been asked REPEATEDLY about his patriotism, and no matter how many times he has answered in the affirmative, the question does not cease! How often has Hillary Clinton or John McCain been asked if they are patriots? How often have they been asked if they love America? When was the last time either of them was asked why they don't wear a flag pin (in fact, Hillary wasn't wearing one when this question was posed to Senator Obama). Double standard? Yes.

“that's just not true.

BEFORE the SC primary Bill Clinton made his "fairytale" comment. And that comment was taken out of context and twisted to appear as though Clinton said Obama's entire candidacy was a fairytale. When in fact, he only said the idea that Obama was consitently against the war was a fairytale. There was nothing racist about the comment.

Hillary talked about the role of LBJ in civil rights BEFORE the SC primary and that was taken out of context and people claimed Hillary had discounted MLK's role in civil rights

Obama then won the vast majority of the black vote in SC based on these two false claims of racism against the Clintons. If you want to blame it on the Clinton's statements. More likely Obama would have won the vast majorityu of the black vote without these two statements by the Clintons.

But, it was the Obama campaign and the media that attacked the Clinton's on these statements unfairly.”
