In Hillary's desperation, she's apparently trotted out a fear-mongering ad in Texas. That's no big news. What I find interesting is the Obama response:
"We don't think the ad is going to be effective at all. Senator Clinton already had her red phone moment -- to decide whether to allow George Bush to invade Iraq. She answered affirmatively. She did not read the National Intelligence Estimate. She still, curiously, tries to suggest that it wasn't a vote for war, but it most assuredly was...Or how about this one in response to the McCain/Bush attacks:
"This is about what you say when you answer that phone. What judgment you show...She, John McCain and George Bush gave the wrong answer."
With their words today, George Bush and John McCain called for staying the course with an endless war in Iraq and a failed policy of not talking to leaders we don’t like, but Americans of all political persuasions are calling for change. The American people aren’t looking for tough talk about fighting for 100 years in Iraq, because they know we need to end this war, finish the job in Afghanistan, and take the fight to al Qaeda. The American people aren’t looking for more of a do-nothing Cuba policy that has failed to secure the release of dissidents, failed to bring democracy to the island, and failed to advance freedom for fifty years, because they know we need to pursue new opportunities to achieve liberty for the Cuban people.Bada boom!
I think Obama and his team will do fine against the Republican attack team by simply outsmarting them.
