ObamaPanic Take 2 - She's a Monster!!

On top of yesterday's babbling Obamtron sticking her foot in her mouth [see "Obama Campaign in a Panic, Making Mistakes] we're treated in this morning's headlines to another example of the panic that is rolling through the Obama camp these days, and the extent to which Barack Obama just isn't making good choices in his closest advisers. Meet Obama adviser Samantha Power.

Sen. Barack Obama suffered another foreign policy snafu with one of his advisers, who told a newspaper that his rival, Sen. Hillary Clinton, was a "monster" who is "stooping to anything" to try to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

Asking Questions about Obama's Dealings with indicted Tony Rezko is "stopping to anything"?

The Chicago Sun-Times has been trying for months to get Obama to answer some very simple questions in this area. Barack is stonewalling it on Rezko while campaign adviser Axelrod lies about having already answered the newspaper's questions, but when Hillary question's him on it she's labeled "a monster".

"She is a monster, too - that is off the record - she is stooping to anything." Though Power had tried to withdraw the remark, it occurred during an on-the-record interview.

What was this person's job again? (so far she apparently hasn't been fired, which speaks voloumes about Obambi's integrity) Ah yes, Powers is an "adviser" -- I guess that's a fancy title for the Obamatronic Drone spinmeisters who've been pumping the press full of venom against Clinton -- and this time she was called on it by the Scotsman Newspaper of Scotland because -- DOH! -- she was on the record, even though she tried to 'take it back.'

See more of the venom the Obama "advisers" spew below -- "adviser "is obviously just a meaningless title used to gain access to the press to spin this vile bile

Earlier, clearly rattled by the Ohio defeat, Ms Power told The Scotsman Mrs Clinton was stopping at nothing to try to seize the lead from her candidate.

"We f***** up in Ohio," she admitted. "In Ohio, they are obsessed and Hillary is going to town on it, because she knows Ohio's the only place they can win.

"She is a monster, too - that is off the record - she is stooping to anything," Ms Power said, hastily trying to withdraw her remark.

Ms Power said of the Clinton campaign: "Here, it looks like desperation. I hope it looks like desperation there, too.

"You just look at her and think, 'Ergh'."

Wow, what an inspiring message of hope and change.

Obama's campaign issued an apology, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Obama speaks glowingly of rising above and changing the way America politics (sometimes plagiarizing, but inspiring nonetheless) while his ObamaDrones use made-up titles like "adviser" to spew Obama's hate and deceit.

Lee, on the one hand you want Obama and their advisers to fight back, but when they say something just a little over the top,Hillary is a 'monster' or a little underwhelming 'they are both unqualified'..you crucify them..This is the sort of campaign that turns people off becuse it is all about 'gotche'..Susan Power is a Pultizer Prize journalist..What exactly wouldn't Hillary 'stoop to do to win the nomination'..Of course she will do monstrous things (she is not alone in that regard) and has in the past to win. It is just not politic to talk about them.

Anyway, the real circular firing squad is still going on with the fighting Clinton camp of course..Is there anyone the Cintons don't fight with? They seem addicted to it.

And so strangely enough, a moment of victory for the Clinton camp somehow feels less than victorious. "Mark blames Patti and Patti blames Mark in a circular firing squad," said an adviser who has worked for both Clintons and watched Penn, Solis Doyle, Ickes, Wolfson, Grunwald and others go at it for months. "What they don't realize is that everyone else blames them -- all of them."

Steve - I've been complaining that Obama wasn't being honest and straight forward with the American people for months now - this has nothing to do with "gotcha politics" and everything to do with the lack of honesty on the part of Barack Oabama finally catching up with him.

I have long acknowledged that there is no shortage of dirt and mud that can be thrown at Clinton.

As to the politics of "fight" - Barack Obama has joined the fray and brought along his supporters who are enthusiastically pummeling Clinton every chance they get. One need only check the Clinton Derangement Syndrome that's in full-bloom on many blogs to realize that.

The Obama "we'l take the high road - were above it all" is history. BIG mistake, in my view, for Obama to abandon that central, important plank in his platform and to stoop to Clinton's level of hand-to-hand politics, but he made his choice... he's now got to live with that. Just another example of his inexperience and the fact that he's out of his league and not ready for prime time by running for president at this point in his political life.

And rest assured - when Obambi realizes that he's losing more than he's gaining by taking the fight to Clinton and fighting by "Queens' rules', and he backs off and starts whining about how he's above it all -- and he then starts slamming Clinton for playing hardball as Barack is now playing as well then I will take it to him again for waffling and being indecisive.

Welcome to American politics. Barack swore he'd change the way it's done, and he failed, but I made no such promise.

ObamaDrones use made-up titles like "adviser" to spew Obama's hate and deceit As far as I know every candidate has advisors. And Obamas advisers have on the whole had a much better record than Clintons. Most of Clintons advisers seem to spend theit time be fighting one another I think you want advisers who have different points of view and freely express it. What's the use of taking advice then or not if everyone saying the same thing..Wasn't it Truman who said that's the one thing I don't lack for as President as advice.
Complaining continually about a lack of honesty on the part of Obama when the other candidate is Hillary Clinton is risible. I noticed also that you have never once said anywhere what you actually saw in Hillary or anything she has ever done that would make her such a good president.

This is a real contest between two candidates. Was it the way she organizes an election campaign, marshals a health task force, encourages young people into politics, inspires a rally, raises funds from all sorts of credible people, conducts herself in front of a grand jury, advocates costly preemptive wars, votes against the banning of cluster mines? Where has she shown any real successful leadership ever, except on a few less formidable women's and children1s issues? It is a pretty lousy cv for someone who wants desperately to be president. For someone whoe campaign is almost exclusively on her experience.. I'm not even mentioning her character or her personality. Obama doesn't have to be a combination of Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln as you expect him to be, in comparison to tower over her.
