A disturbing pattern is emerging from the campaign of unity and hope. First, there was the "Punjab Memo", then Michelle Obama's sexist attacks and her hesitation to support Senator Clinton. Followed by Obama's sexist language, Obama has even accused Senator Clinton of corruption and "saying anything to get elected", and this was after the egregious race-baiting by the Obama camp.
It seems Obama's campaign isn't Pro-Obama as much as it is Anti-Hillary...
Senator Obama's top Foreign Policy aide, Samantha Power has taken it upon herself to reveal the Obama campaign's true feelings for Senator Clinton and the voters, specifically of Ohio, that support her.
"We f***** up in Ohio," [Powers] 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."
The gumption and clear inexperience of this woman, to, in an interview, call a US Senator, former First Lady, and lifelong public servant, who is currently running for President a "monster" is too disgusting and disturbing to handle.
Power goes on to literally express shock and confusion that anyone, even close friends, could even like Senator Clinton.
"Interestingly, the people in her innermost circle seem to not mind her; I think they really love her."
But she added: "There is this middle circle – they are really on the warpath. But the truth is she has proved herself really willing to stoop."
Power then confesses she can't even look at Clinton without her clear disdain, and downright hatred of the Senator bubbling to the surface:
"You just look at her and think: ergh. But if you are poor and she is telling you some story about how Obama is going to take your job away, maybe it will be more effective. The amount of deceit she has put forward is really unattractive."
Perhaps, her most egregious attack is upon the economically disenfranchised of Ohio; implying their poverty makes them so desperate they will accept "lies" from a "monster." The economy really matters, especially to Ohioans.
This kind of talk, even according to Obama, should not be tolerated. However, it seems her half-hearted apology is enough for Obama.
This entire episode, leaves one thinking, "If you can 'slip up' like this in an interview, how much of this hate have you been spewing on a regular basis behind closed doors?" This is just another example of Obama's lip service to change and unity unaccompanied by the fortitude and conviction it takes to act. So much for unity.
