Hillary Slams Obama's Rovian Tactics: 'Shame on You, Barack Obama, Meet Me in Ohio!' (Video)


Wow. Obama talks about being fired-up, but Hillary walks the walk! Who said women aren't allowed to get angry in public? Once again, feminist trailblazer Hillary Rodham Clinton breaks the rules! Go Hillary!!

Hillary slams Barack Obama -- the dude running for God or American Idol -- for his deceitful mailings which misrepresent her position on NAFTA and for his relentless attacks on universal health care via his shamefully rovian Harry & Louise campaign propaganda. Go Hillary!!

At long last, we are going to hear a debate about the stark difference between Obama's pretty words and Obama's actual down and dirty GOP style campaign tactics. It's the hypocrisy, stupid!

Shame on you, Barack Obama – it is time you ran a campaign consistent with your messages in public. That’s what I expect from you. Meet me in Ohio. Let’s have a debate about your tactics and your behavior in this campaign.


Time and time again, you hear one thing in speeches and then you see a campaign that has the worst kind of tactics, reminiscent of the same sort of Republican attacks on Democrats. I am here to say that it is not only wrong, but it is undermining core Democratic principles!

Since when do Democrats attack one another on universal health care? Enough with the speeches and the big rallies and then using tactics that are right out of Karl Rove’s playbook. This is wrong! And every Democrat should be outraged.

So shame on you, Barack Obama – it is time you ran a campaign consistent with your messages in public. That’s what I expect from you. Meet me in Ohio! Let’s have a debate about your tactics and your behavior in this campaign!


Obama showed up at a press conference to respond to Hillary's charges. Obama strolled out, Obama laughed, Obama was dismissive, Obama was clearly so unworried that you have to wonder why he bothered. Press conference? Fan club of embedded adoring media idiots who also famously embraced George W. Bush and his prime time shock and awe thriller of a war. Critical thinking? Scrutiny? Objectivity? Journalism's code of ethics? Don't ever expect it from the mindlessly lazy U.S. media.

In Edinburg, Texas., Mr. Obama briefly stuck his head through a blue curtain at the far end of the press room. “Crank it up, guys,” he yelled to reporters bent over their laptops. “Words matter. Don’t listen to Hillary.” To which he added: “That’s a joke.”
