I have been working on tomorrow's This Week With Barack Obama and decided to go over to Huffington Post.
I don't know if this has been diaried, but it just solidified everything for me about Bill and Hillary Clinton and the depths and lows they will get to destroy a democratic colleague, only for the end result being in their favor.
Tom Edsall has an article up on how the Clinton Union Backer is distributing to union leaders activities of the 70s Weather Underground group.
The document - a three-page emailed essay by Rick Sloan, communications director for the International Association of Machinists as Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) -- takes both literary and political license to outline what Sloan believes would be the thrust of a hypothetical Republican campaign against Obama focusing on his tangential connection to Ayers and Dohrn.
The goal of the essay appears to be to discredit Obama as the prospective Democratic presidential nominee.
In the article Edsall has it outlined that this information has a link to the FBI Freedom Information website. This information gives details of this group's activity back in the 70s.
Basically, this is a scare tactic to make us afraid of the GOP using this information against Barack Obama. We all know that Bill Ayers live in the Hyde Park community, on the south side of Chicago in the University of Chicago area. We know that Barack and Ayers have sat on a board together, frequent community event together, casual acquaintances, etc. To try to equate the doings of this organization of the 60s, 70s to Obama is laughable and totally ridiculous.
The time has come. Hillary Clinton needs to get out of this race. It is apparent that her intentions are not for the Democratic Party, but only for herself.
I remember when Bill Clinton's former mistress Gennifer Flowers had that press conference. Remember? Remember how we rallied behind Bill Clinton? Remember when we said what happens between a married couple is none of our business? Remember? We trusted the Clintons at face value. We, Democrats chose him as our nominee. Battle scar and all.
Then the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, believing President Clinton that he did not have sexual relations with that woman, only to retract his statement and admit the affair. Remember, Democrats when we had to defend him, the Oval Office, his behavior? Remember?
Well, the time has come to stop defending the Clintons.
This primary cycle has shown the ugliness of the Clintons.
Barack is right. Hillary Clinton is so paranoid, the only way she knows how to fight back is with GOP tactics, Karl Rovian tactics. That is all she knows how to do. And even when the numbers, delegates, money, etc. is presented to her, she is blinded by her self interest. Not anything for the good of the party, but only for herself.
I am done being angry at the Clintons, I think right now they are quite sad, really. The bitterness (no pun intended) is reeking and is becoming toxic in the Democratic waters.
Time for the remaining super delegates to side with Barack Obama and end this.
Time for the Clintons to go back home and remember how to be Democrats again, if they can.
