Obama’s New Clothes

Whatever your fight, don’t be ladylike~ Mother Jones 

I woke up this morning to the sound of H. Clinton calling Obama out to battle.  She sounded more like a teacher reprimanding a petulant student.

“I am not going to stand here and see this campaign polluted by the kind of misleading, discredited and false attacks,” she said to a crowd in Ohio. “We deserve better than that. He’s been called out on it, he has been contradicted on it, he knows better and here it is ‘Paid for by the Obama for America Campaign.’…   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 and let’s have a debate about your tactics and your behavior in this campaign.”

After accusing Obama from stealing from Karl Rove’s playbook H. Clinton may have seen a few pages herself because the top headline of today’s Drudge Report shows Barack Obama dressed in the traditional clothes that Somali men wear with the question “Wouldn’t we be seeing this on the cover of every magazine if it were HRC.”  Clinton aides are neither confirming or denying they sent the photo out.

“If Barack Obama’s campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed. Hillary Clinton has worn the traditional clothing of countries she has visited and had those photos published widely,” Clinton campaign manager Maggie Williams said in a statement.

Obama’s campaign manager David Plouffe says that this latest attack is just another in a series of attacks that Senator Clinton has used to try discredit Obama as a christian and portray him as muslim and anti-American.

“On the very day that Senator Clinton is giving a speech about restoring respect for America in the world, her campaign has engaged in the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering we’ve seen from either party in this election,”David Plouffe said.  “This is part of a disturbing pattern that led her county chairs to resign in Iowa, her campaign chairman to resign in New Hampshire, and it’s exactly the kind of divisive politics that turns away Americans of all parties and diminishes respect for America in the world.”
