It’s amazing the audacity of the Clinton team. Not a day goes by when they don’t accuse their adversaries of using the very tactics they have perfected. Note how Hillary drones on and on about the “politics of personal destruction,” the very type of politics her husband and she have been practiced for approximately the same amount of time she claims as having “experience.”
Earlier today, Clinton campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson showed how true Clintonian he is by using this very tactic, accusing others of what his team does everyday:
When Sen. Obama was confronted with questions over whether he was ready to be commander in chief and steward of the economy, he chose not to address those questions, but to attack Sen. Clinton. . . . I for one do not believe that imitating Ken Starr is the way to win a Democratic primary election for president.
Howard, he wasn’t imitating Ken Starr. He was imitating you candidate — and her husband. Dodging a tough question and attacking your opponent instead, that’s a classic Clinton move. In fact, your candidate’s husband’s people used it against Starr himself, demonizing that well-respected prosecutor and former federal judge.
Are there no limits to the audacity of the Clinton team?
And since Howard has proposed some questions for Senator Obama, how about having your candidate address some questions she won’t answer.
It’s time to address your candidate’s reputation for secrecy. She needs to be more forthcoming about her family’s finances and a whole host of issues.
- Why don’t you release your complete tax returns?
- Is your team blocking the release of the DVD version of the Path to 9/11. If so, why? And if not, will you press for its release? If you don’t want it released, why not?
- You’ve been running as the candidate of experience, why then have you blocked access to records of your White House experience at the Clinton Library? What will you do to make sure these records are released and be made available so people can review them before the election?
- Speaking of the Clinton Library, why won’t your husband release the names of those who have donated to it? How can you assure us that those donations, some of the them well over one million dollars, will not influence you should you win in November?
- You have proposed a vast array of new government programs, including an increased federal role in the health care system, how do you plan on paying for these?
- Where was your husband at your victory celebration in Columbus?
I’m sure our readers can come up with even more questions to ask this secretive woman.
