Hillary Says “Shame On You, Barack Obama!”

From the Clinton News Network itself, CNN:

Sen. Hillary Clinton waves campaign literature she claims is false.

(CNN) — A visibly angry Sen. Hillary Clinton lashed out Saturday at Sen. Barack Obama over campaign literature that she said he knows is “blatantly false.”

Clinton jabbed the air with her hands as she told a crowd in Cincinnati, Ohio, that two Obama mailings spread lies about her positions on universal health care and the North American Free Trade Agreement.

“Shame on you, Barack Obama,” she said

With Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland nodding in agreement behind her, Clinton accused Obama of emulating the tactics of Karl Rove, President Bush’s former political director who is reviled by Democrats.

Obama “is continuing to send false and discredited mailings with information that is not true to the voters of Ohio,” Clinton said.

One mailing says her health care proposal would force everyone to buy health insurance, regardless of ability to pay, a charge Clinton vehemently denied.

“Sen. Obama knows it is not true that my plan forces people to buy insurance even if they can’t afford it,” she said.

The NAFTA mailer says Clinton was a “champion” for NAFTA while first lady, but now opposes it. NAFTA was negotiated by the first President Bush and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.

“I am fighting to change NAFTA,” Hillary Clinton said Saturday.

Enough with the speeches and the big rallies and then using tactics right out of Karl Rove’s playbook. This is wrong, and every Democrat should be outraged,” she said.

Obama spokesman Bill Burton denied Clinton’s assertions that the literature was false.

“Everything in those mailers is completely accurate, unlike the discredited attacks from Hillary Clinton’s negative campaign that have been rejected in South Carolina, Wisconsin, and across America,” Burton said.

Clinton challenged Obama to “meet me in Ohio, and let’s have a debate about your tactics and your behavior in this campaign.”

The two are scheduled to meet for a debate next week in Cleveland, Ohio…

So much for the kinder, gentler Hillary. It lasted almost one full news cycle.

By the way, here is a quote from her ghostwritten autobiography “Living History,” page 217:

Creating a free trade zone in North America―the largest free trade zone in the world―would expand U.S. exports, create jobs and ensure that our economy was reaping the benefits, not the burdens, of globalization. Although unpopular with labor unions, expanding trade opportunities was an important administration goal.

The question was whether the White House could focus its energies on two legislative campaigns at once. I argued that we could and that postponing health care would further weaken its chances. But it was Bill’s decision, and because NAFTA faced a legislative deadline, he concluded that it had to be addressed first.

So it would seem that yes, Mrs. Clinton was very much in favor of NAFTA.

That is, before the polls and focus groups told her she should be against it.

“Enough with the speeches and the big rallies and then using tactics right out of Karl Rove’s playbook.”

God what a reprehensible creature she is.

Be gone, lying witch!
