Continuing with the 2008 Election madness, it is no secret that everyone is trying to understand, while at the same time, eliminate the popularity of Barack Obama. This past week has seen two very clear indications that thoughts are circulating in the minds of those who have their own personal agenda’s.
Beginning with the lesser of two evils, was Hillary Clinton’s comments supporting her determination to remain in the Democratic Primaries through June. She was basically citing the fact that Robert Kennedy was assassinated in June of 1968 as a base for one of her arguments.
For the life of me, I cannot reasonably understand why you would use a situation like that to bolster your own desire to remain in the race. The only reason one would make a statement like that is that, like Robert Kennedy, if the lead horse in the race is somehow taken out, Obama, she would be the next in line.
I would appreciate it if someone could provide me with some positive justification from those comments as they apply to Hillary’s candidacy and not some subliminal desire to hope for the assassination of Obama. If the latter is truly the deep feelings of a major political figure then we should all worry about our democracy.
As I said, this was the lesser of the two evils. Yes, it gets worse, much worse. In a recent Fox News discussion with Eric Shawn about Hillary’s comments, Liz Trotta an Author, Journalist and former New York Bureau Chief for the Washington Times was brought on the air to provide comments about Hillary’s very public gaff. What followed deep, personal look into the mentality of a once respected Journalist charged with enlightening the masses.
“And now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama, uh Obama. Well, both, if we could.”

Trying to obviously get out of a very bad comment as fast as possible, Eric half jokingly said, “Talk about how you really feel!” and then quickly tried to bring the conversation back on track. Do you think it ended there? Oh, hell no. She followed Shawn’s next question of whether or not she (Trotta) really felt that Hillary didn’t think that about Obama with.
“Well, that’s beside the point, whether she meant it or not.”
Seriously, I think this woman has lost her mind! Anyone who follows news in general knows that Fox is known for its strong conservative slant, so Democrats usually never get a break. But this is over the top and it seems they know it.
You would expect that any normal agency would immediately dismiss her for those comments. All that has happened so far is her appearance on Fox News again with Bill Hemmer and offered an apology writing it all of to a bad attempt at humor. Lets see how funny it is with the Secret Service crawling up her ass after comments about hoping for an Assassination.
I am going to leave that comment speak for itself. The one thing I will say is that at least she had the balls to say what she was thinking. I am more frightened by Hillary’s comments as they are hints to much deeper potential concern if true. This leads me to think about all of the pipe dream comments of Hillary accepting the Vice Presidency lets get serious here, if she does, Obama will need to watch his back once she is one roadblock from the Oval office. The more likely VP nod? John Edwards.
Despite all of this ignorance, I will say however, Barack is taking this all extremely well and should be commended for his public restraint. But I would love to be a fly on the wall of his inner sanctum to hear the conversations about these two.
