Obama’s Hillary/Women Insults Keep Coming

with one comment

Now He Says Let All Michigan & Florida Delegates Vote!

Now that Sen. Barack Obama is assured of his party’s nomination for president, he is calling on the Democratic National Committee to count the full votes of the disputed delegations from Florida and Michigan, our friends at The Swamp report.

The delegates were originally stripped because the two states violated party rules by holding primaries before Feb. 5. The delegates from each state were given half-votes at a contentious party meeting in May, as part of a compromise designed to give two important states some role at the convention, and was the subject of a huge fight between Hillary Clinton and Obama, with Obama forces working to exclude both delegations because their states had been won by Clinton.

“I believe party unity calls for the delegates from Florida and Michigan to be able to participate fully alongside the delegates from the other states and territories,” Obama said in the letter.

Clinton stuck to the DNC rules, and had it turned back on her by Obama….he called her a monster, trying to disenfranchise Michigan and Florida delegates, when all she was doing was going by the rules Obama originally agreed to.

Once he assassinated her character, and forced her out, he makes a big deal over allowing them to finally be seated.  Just another big public show to humiliate Clinton more, while re-writing history again. How cheated,  insulted and angry some women must feel….Hillary Clinton must feel!

He could have done it all quietly, but instead Obama and his campaign made it a big press release deal.  Why?  They are still afraid because Clinton hasn’t released all her delegates, and they need to drive more nails in her coffin out of fear the Super Delegates will realize Obama has a good chance of losing in November…..

What’s next? Will the appoint Geraldine Ferraro a campaign co-chair?

As Brit Hume said: “Obama started the year by selling hope, but now he’s selling audacity”

  1. So now, when, as Obama thinks, he doesn’t need more delegates to be a nominee, he says that the MI & FL delegations should be seated in full and with full voting rights. So he acknowledges that the popular vote is clearly on Hillary’s side – better later than never.

    It’s easy to tell now why is this rush – the polls show clearly that Florida is leaning towards McCain more and more, and Michigan is again a on a table. And in this heat I believe Clinton should use the situation without much hesitation and urge for a roll call during the convention. Let’s see who will get more delegates at the finish.
