Bill Clinton gets it and is saying it and we agree with it:
It’s part of the national media’s attempt to nail Hillary for Obama. It’s just the most biased press coverage in history. It’s another way of helping Obama. They had all these people standing up in this church cheering, calling Hillary a white racist, and he didn’t do anything about it. The first day he said ‘Ah, ah, ah well.’ Because that’s what they do– he gets other people to slime her. So then they saw the movie they thought this is a great ad for John McCain– maybe I better quit the church. It’s all politics. It’s all about the bias of the media for Obama. Don’t think anything about it.”
“But I’m telling ya, all it’s doing is driving her supporters further and further away– because they know exactly what it is– this has been the most rigged press coverage in modern history– and the guy ought to be ashamed of himself. But he has no shame. It isn’t the first dishonest piece he’s written about me or her.”
Slimy Todd Purdum was the topic but Bill Clinton took it to the source – Barack Obama. It is Barack Obama that Big Media is working overtime to help. It is Barack Obama that cries “Racism” at every opportunity. It is Barack Obama that gets other people to slime her.
Bill Clinton is also right when he says all it’s doing is driving her supporters further and further away— because they know exactly what it is.
Big Media and Obama (redundant, we know) audaciously hope that Hillary Clinton supporters will forget by November and vote for the unqualified Obama. To that end they are working overtime to push Hillary out, depress voter turnout in the South Dakota and Montana primaries today, and create the impression that the fight is over.
Today’s Big Media overtime push for Obama was the “Clinton Concession” buzz. The Associated Press working overtime for Obama published a story stating flatly that tonight Hillary would concede. The story is untrue.
Yesterday’s Big Media overtime push for Obama was the “Senators Endorse Obama” declaration. According to the fiction writers, most, if not all, U.S. Senators would move to immediately endorse Obama. That story died late last night:
Sen. Ken Salazar joined a small group of fellow undecided Democratic superdelegates on Capitol Hill today, but said they reached no agreement on whether to endorse a presidential candidate as a group.
The gathering created a major stir amid published reports that up to 15 previously uncommitted senators were on the verge of giving a united endorsement to Democratic front-runner Sen. Barack Obama.
That did not happen at the meeting inside the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee offices, where Salazar and the only three other participants left by a backdoor to avoid more than a dozen reporters who staked out the front door.
Later, Salazar said the meeting had been “a dialogue without an agenda” and added he had spoken to “12 or 13” Democratic colleagues in the past few days.
Hillary Clinton, like Hillary Clinton supporters is conceding nothing. We are made of stern stuff that does not crumble.
Clinton donor tells me that on a conference call today with major fundraisers this afternoon, Harold Ickes told them Clinton isn’t planning to drop out. He pressed donors to stay unified, and reviewed tactical options, including challenging the Michigan delegation.
State finance committees are also circulating letters to deliver to Clinton tomorrow in New York, and I’ve obtained a draft of the Illinois finance committee’s letter, being circulated by a Clinton fundraising aide, Rafi Jafri, which stresses a fight until the convention, and a resolution in “August, and no earlier.”
A fight until the convention – nothing less.
Introducing Hillary in Boca Raton, Representative Corrine Brown said: “You are going to count us now, or don’t count on us later.”
Don’t expect our full votes or half-votes Big Media tool Barack.
