“The GOP, should I be the nominee, can say whatever they want to say about me, my track record,” Obama said. “If they think that they’re going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful because that I find unacceptable, the notion that you start attacking my wife or my family.”
Obama tells Tenn.’s GOP: ‘Lay off my wife’, SF Gate, May 19, 2008
I like this response, I think it’s the only one for the situation. But at this time in history, does Mr. Obama, who wants to be President, think the GOP giver a good goddam what he finds unacceptable? Does he think they’re going to lay off just because he told them to? Does he think he can govern the madhouse the US and the world have become this way? Well, okay. I certainly don’t have any better ideas. But in future, Senator, don’t bring a knife to a shoot-out.
Full disclosure: I’ll vote for whoever gets the Dem nomination, but this is exactly why I’ve been leaning towards Senator Clinton. At least she knows what she’s up against in today’s GOP. And if/when/whatever Hillary doesn’t get the nomination, I hope she and Bill righteously kick some GOP ass before they fade into oblivion (if either of those things are even possible).
