Hillary Starts Two (More) Attack Websites

From ABC News:

Clinton Launches Obama Attack Web Sites

Clinton Campaign Registered Names of Two Web Sites to Attack Ill. Senator


DES MOINES, Iowa, Dec. 20, 2007 — ABC News has learned that the campaign of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., has registered the names of two Web sites with the express goal of attacking her chief rival, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.

It’s the first time this election cycle a presidential campaign has launched a Web site with the express purpose of of launching serious criticisms on a rival.

Votingpresent.com and Votingpresent.org are domains hosted by the same IP address as official Clinton Web sites, such TheHillaryIKnow.com, which was launched with much fanfare this week.

The Clinton campaign intends to use these new Web sites to paint Obama as cowardly.

Clinton has attacked Obama for having occasionally voted “present” as an Illinois state legislator when it came to contentious legislation…

The Obama campaign referred to the websites as “politically motivated attacks in the eleventh hour of a closely contested campaign” and defended Obama’s “present” votes…

Clinton has used these present votes to paint Obama as full of words but not action.

“I don’t think people want a lot of talk about change,” she told Iowans early this month. “I think they want someone with a real record — a doer, not a talker. After eight years of incompetence, they don’t want false hope, they want real results.”

The Clinton campaign disputed the notion that its pending attack websites will be the first, noting that after it was revealed that Clinton had taken questions from supporters at events, Sen. John Edwards, D-NC, in November launched the short-lived website PlantsForHillary.com, purporting to be from various forms of flora supporting the New York senator, though that website was taken down after a day.

A Clinton campaign official argued that Obama’s campaign has a website called HillaryAttacks.BarackObama.com, which catalogues criticisms Clinton has made about the Illinois senator. (Not to be confused with the anti-Clinton site HillaryAttacks.com, which is not affiliated with the Obama campaign.)

Clinton’s campaign has also introduced, quietly, a Web site called Attacktimeline.com, which Clinton officials say chronicles the ways Obama and Edwards were criticizing her publicly long before she began returning fire.

Apparently ABC News is unaware of the Hillary’s “war room” site, Hillary Is 44.

Who knows how many sites she has now? For her money is no object. And propaganda is everything.

“I don’t think people want a lot of talk about change,” she told Iowans early this month. “I think they want someone with a real record — a doer, not a talker.”

Then what chance does she have?

Hillary has never done anything except kibitz. She has never run anything but her mouth.
