The Obama campaign is attacking Hillary Clinton’s character. They claim, she has a “character gap” which will make it “next to impossible” for her to win the general election. The Obama camp has all but come out and called her untrustworthy. Obama, I am not to sure if you want to get into a mug slinging contest with the Clintons. You will lose.
The campaign of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., delivered one of its harshest, most negative attacks yet today, asserting that Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., is lacking in character and regularly misleads voters.
“She is not seen as trustworthy by the American people,” said Obama campaign manager David Plouffe in a conference call with reporters this morning, citing a Gallup poll released this week indicating that only 44 percent of the American people consider Clinton “honest and trustworthy,” as opposed to 67 percent for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and 63 percent for Obama.
There was a time during the Democratic Primaries where Barack Obama could have gotten away with making such a statement and would have been correct. There was a time where everyone would have agreed. However, that time has past. Following the Reverend Wright racist anti-American comment fiasco and on the foot heels of the Rezco trial, and the “typical white person” comment Barack Obama may have his own Character Gap issues. Does Hillary Clinton have an honest issue? Yes she does. For some reason, Clinton feels the need to exaggerate anything that she may have ever done or taken part in.
However, Hillary Clinton is not the only one who has an issue when it comes to the voters. Barack Obama’s less than sincere explanation of why he has been a part of a church with such a militant, racist view on America will haunt him in the general election against John McCain, if Obama get that far. We will see in the up coming primaries in Pennsylvania, Indiana and North Carolina.
