Obama injects race back into the campaign Again by Refusing to pull an ad by the parent of the culinary workers union saying Hillary "does not respect our people" and "is shameless." He is now doing in Nevada what he condemned in Iowa.
Obama is a liar, a hypocrite, and a no-holds barred dirty politician who talks about hope and delivers hype, who praises Ronald Reagan over Bill Clinton, who will not condemn his anti-semitic 'spiritual guide' and wouldn't know an hispanic if he fell over one. But to hear him tell it in Nevada he eats frijoles every night!
The ad was roundly condemned by Clinton and many hispanics.
"It’s pathetic and it's sad and it's unfortunate that they have to stoop so low," said Dolores Huerta, a longtime Hispanic labor leader who supports Clinton. She said she had never met Obama in her years of working on Hispanic causes, and suggested the ad was prompted by his lack of Hispanic support.
"I have yet to find even one worker — a Latino worker — who is supporting Barack Obama," she said.
There can be no doubt the radio ad aired by one of Obama's labor allies re-injects ethnicity into the Democratic primary contest in sharp terms.
The ad also says, "Hillary Clinton is shameless."
On a conference call arranged by the Clinton campaign, it was demanded that Obama distance himself from it. They also said the Clinton campaign had no involvement in the lawsuit.
The political director for the textile and hotel workers' union UNITE-HERE, Tom Snyder, defended the decision to run it.
A spokesman for Obama, Bill Burton, did not condemn the ad or the independent spending specifically, but instead attacked Clinton.
"Sen. Obama believes, and has said clearly, that campaigns should fund themselves and discourages supporters from spending outside the campaign," he said, and then echoed the charges in the ad.
UNITE HERE Negative Ad follows. It is not highlighted because it is so hateful.
Hillary Clinton does not respect our people. Hillary Clinton supporters went to court to prevent working people to vote this Saturday — that is an embarrassment.
Hillary Clinton supporters want to prevent people from voting in their workplace on Saturday. This is unforgivable. Hillary Clinton is shameless. Hillary Clinton should not allow her friends to attack our people’s right to vote this Saturday. This is unforgivable; there’s no respect
Sen. Obama is defending our right to vote. Sen. Obama wants our votes. He respects our votes, our community, and our people.
Sen. Obama’s campaign slogan is "Si Se Puede" ("Yes We Can"). Vote for a president that respects us, and that respects our right to vote. Obama for president, "Si Se Puede" ("Yes We Can").
