From Lynne Sweet:
WASHINGTON—With a showdown looming in Pennsylvania, a debate between Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is in the works—for April 17 at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.
I hear that Rep. Bob Brady (D-Pa.), the Philadelphia Democratic boss—and an uncommitted superdelegate—is working to make the debate happen. The National Constitution Center—near historic Independence Hall and the new Liberty Bell Center—is in Brady’s district.
Philadelphia hosted a Democratic debate at the end of October, at Drexel University.
“I don’t think that my church is actually particularly controversial.” – Senator Barack Obama
“For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country.” – Michelle Obama
Wright also serves on an advisory committee of Obama’s campaign.
Listen to the clip above…it’s scary stuff.
Please use the link above to vote in a Philadelphia poll for Hillary as the person best suited to beat McCain.
Currently, the Obamabots have him at 60% and Hillary only at 39% (as of 1113am on 3/13/08).
We need to get Hillary to 70%!
Vote, vote, vote….and spread this to all your friends to vote as well!
UPDATED: As of 2:43pm, Hillary is at 46.2% and Obama is at 53.8%. Keep up the good work! We are about 125 votes from narrowing the gap (that sounds familiar).
As of 3:48pm, Hillary is at 48.2% and Obama is at 51.8%. There is a difference of 77 votes between them. Can we get 100 votes to put her ahead?
As of 4:46pm, Hillary is at 49.3% and Obama is at 50.7%, with a difference of 34 votes.
Can we get Hillary up to 70% by the end of the night?
Obama uses the race card to deflect any and all criticisms. America is, obviously, uncomfortable talking about race — and for this reason Obama gets a pass on things other candidates would never be allowed to brush over. His “Hope” and “Change” repetitions are never called onto the carpet for what they really are: empty sentiments. The meida is too scared to properly question or vet this man, because all journalists are terrified of being called racists. That’s probably why no one has reported on Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s spiritual advisor, or the hate-filled sermons that go on at Obama’s church. The media has ignored this because anyone bringing the subject up is automatically called a racist by the Obama camp.
Is this the politics of Hope?
If Obama repeatedly says he will not be a micromanaging CEO as president, but instead will rely on advisors to run the country, then it is fair game to see who his advisors have been up to this point. Obama has had a 20 year relationship with Jeremiah Wright, and he’s had a 17 year relationship with indicted political fixer Antoin “Big Tony” Rezko. If these are the sorts of people Obama surrounds himself with, then how can he be trusted to run this country?
Is this the Change Obama believes in?
Read what Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s pastor and spiritual advisor, has to say about America, going as far as to encourage his congregation to say, “G** Damn America!” instead of “G** Bless America!”. This is the man who married Barack and Michelle Obama, baptized their daughters, and gave Obama the “Audacity of Hope” title for his last book.
Considering what Jeremiah Wright preaches, it’s no wonder Michelle Obama says the things she says about being proud in America. The person Obama chose as his spirtual advisor says a lot about him.
The company a person keeps matters. Jeremiah Wright. Antoin “Big Tony’ Rezko. Michelle Obama. That sure says a lot about the man Obama really is.
This really speaks for itself.
Mr. Obama is once again busying himself with laying questions marks in knights and rooks on the pads of reporters in his traveling press corp. We wonder why, for such a smart guy, Barack Obama is pretending to be so dumb. Perhaps, he isn’t much of an historian. Anyway, whatever.
Here is a 10 minute video for Mr. Obama. At the Buzz, we are feeling a little saucy tonight and might make it over the Obama’s website to post.
From 1973 to 2008, take a quick journey through the life and times of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
From the Children’s Defense Fund, to teaching criminal law, to heading the Legal Service Corporation, to SCHIP, Beijing and Women’s Rights, to Ireland, to an historic Senate seat run, to 9/11 to working across the aisle for Veterans and First Responders — This video has the kitchen sink.
So, whenever they ask you, “Come on. She didn’t do anything.” Be sure to correct them.
