Hillary Clinton blasted Barack Obama by comparing him to George H. Bush. Claiming that Obama is like an “untested Bush in 2000.”
“So, fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me,” Clinton said while her loyal ally, Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, also tried to draw a contrast between Clinton and Obama by saying, “She just knows more. She knows more.”
The attacks on Obama are a sign of desperation on the part of the Clinton campaign and are not unique. The attacks bear no weight because similar attacks were lodged against Bill Clinton in the 1992 campaign against George H.W. Bush. And similar charges lodged against Reagan in 1980. And against Carter in 1976. And against JFK in 1960.
And with apologies to Strunk and White’s book, The Elements of Style: etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
And so it goes. Reading on Walden Bookstore.
