From some recent statements put out by the Clinton campaign:
Oct. 11, regarding torture: “Itâs unfortunate that Barack Obama is abandoning the politics of hope as his campaign stagnates and is launching false attacks on other Democrats instead.”
Oct. 11, regarding Iran: “It’s unfortunate that Sen. Obama is abandoning the politics of hope and embracing the same old attack politics as his support stagnates.”
Oct. 8, regarding Iran: “It’s unfortunate that Senator Obama is resorting to the same old attack politics as his poll numbers start falling. . . . A flagging campaign is not an excuse to distort anyoneâs record.
Sep. 19, regarding a lobbyist luncheon: ââIncreasingly negative attacks against other Democrats arenât going to end the war, deliver universal healthcare, or turn John Edwardsâ flagging campaign around.ââ
Working to cultivate the sense of Clinton’s inevitability? Nah.
Chris Bowers has a slightly different take on some of these recent campaign statements.
