Will voters embrace the mad Hillary? Apparently we get to find out.
The Obama mailers that have Clinton in a twist contain two charges:
One mailing says her health care proposal would force everyone to buy health insurance, regardless of ability to pay, a charge Clinton vehemently denied.
“Sen. Obama knows it is not true that my plan forces people to buy insurance even if they can’t afford it,” she said.
The NAFTA mailer says Clinton was a “champion” for NAFTA while first lady, but now opposes it. NAFTA was negotiated by the first President Bush and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.
“I am fighting to change NAFTA,” Hillary Clinton said Saturday.
The Obama campaign response that “everything in those mailers is completely accurate” is backed up by multiple sources.
The healthcare charge I don’t need any help with since I was among the incredulous when Hillary said that she would “go after” wages of people to pay for her nanny-state healthcare plan. How she can deny that now is beyond me. It’s not like I wasn’t paying attention.
But admittedly NAFTA and her position(s) on it has been off my political radar. So the Obama campaign’s extensive list of documentation is rather helpful.
I don’t think that the mad Hillary is somebody most people will vote for–and yes, I do think it’s a politically calculated stunt, the same as virtually everything the Clintons do is. We’ll find out on March 4 if I’m right.
