What's The Problem With Hillary Saying "Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June"?
Hillary Clinton today brought up the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy while defending her decision to stay in the race against Barack Obama.
"My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it," she said, dismissing calls to drop out.
Obama's camp immediately fired back.
"Sen. Clinton's statement before the Argus Leader editorial board was unfortunate and has no place in this campaign," Obama campaign spokesman said in a statement.
She later issued an apology for the remark.
"I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation and in particular the Kennedy family was in any way offensive. I certainly had no intention of that whatsoever," the former first lady said.
In a statement, Kennedy Jr. said: “It is clear from the context that Hillary was invoking a familiar political circumstance in order to support her decision to stay in the race through June. I have heard her make this reference before, also citing her husband's 1992 race, both of which were hard fought through June. I understand how highly charged the atmosphere is, but I think it is a mistake for people to take offense.”
Normal thinking people (i.e. those that aren't clinically insane, who cling to vague and ambiguous phrases such as "hope" and "change") also knew exactly what she meant. The only ones who got their undies in a bundle are the Haters who couldn't for the sake of their own lives name one single accomplishment or piece of legislation that The Illinois Muslim sponsored or co-sponsored. They can't do this because he has no record of accomplishment as a U.S. Senator and the only item he is known for as an Illinois State Senator is voting "present" on 500-some odd bills. In other words, as I have written before, The Illinois Muslim has no gravitas.
The Cult followers of The Illinois Muslim are reacting with such feigned apoplectic outbursts because they have the thinnest of skin. They know their candidate is inexperienced, he's a novice, a rookie. And their attitude is that ...no one - absolutely no one...can criticize The Illinois Muslim or say, or imply or impugn anything critical of The Imam from Illinois. What. A. Bunch. Of. F*cking. Crybabies.
I hope The Illinois Muslim is elected in November. I look forward to treating him in exactly the same manner as The Left has treated Bush and Cheney for the past seven years.
Don Long has written the template for how to treat the next president, should it be either Hillary "MrsSatan" Clinton or The Big Eared-Cigarette Smoking, Pot head, Crack Pipe Puffing, Baby-Killing, terrorist loving, al-Qaida financed appeaser candidate Muslim From Illinois.
