In case there was any doubt the plagiarism absurdity was straight from the top:
As Clinton crisscrossed Wisconsin yesterday, she returned to what has become a central theme of her retooled, sharper-edged campaign, saying at one point: : “There’s a difference between speeches and solutions, between talk and action.”
Speaking to reporters last night, Clinton was asked about her campaign’s accusation of plagiarism against Obama. She said she had no idea what impact it will have on Tuesday’s vote. “I leave that to all of you to figure out,” she said, then added: “Facts are important. I’m a facts person. If your whole candidacy is based on words, it should be your own words.”
I can’t find the video right now, but there was one news report last night juxtaposing Hillary speeches with her opponents speeches, and what do you know- Hillary, by her standards, is one big fat plagiarist. Worse even than Obama! Crazy, I know!
At any rate, we will see today if this recent turn to going negative works for the Clintons. And really, that is all this is about- drive down Obama’s positives, and hope you turn away enough support that you close the margin. This is nothing about increasing support for Hillary, this is about eroding his.
Nothing that should surprise you if you lived through the last 8 years of Bush/Rove and the previous 8 years of the other Clinton. I will say it again- I will vote for the Democrat in November no matter what, but I sure would love it if Hillary’s group is knocked off their perch. It isn’t even so much Hillary as the sleaze around her. Wolfson of the upper lip sweat, the despicable Ickes, and the always odious Mark Penn, who looks like he came out of a Central Casting call for pedophiles. It would make me really happy to see those folks sent packing.
