Lauer then presented Clinton with a photo of Rezko posing between Sen. Clinton as first lady and her husband during his presidency. He asked if she remembered meeting Rezko.
Clinton said she did not, and parried, "I don't have a 17-year relationship with him."GOI: Pot meet kettle. There she goes again, shoveling more shit. Obama didn't have a 17 year relationship with Rezko but only did 5 HOURS of work for his organization. And not only that, now this picture appears of Rezko nestled in between the Clinton's. Things that make you say, hmmm. So don't act like your shit doesn't stink Hillary. You gotta stand in awe at the bullshit the Clinton's shovel. They are the masters of hypocrisy and spin.
It figures that they would throw the "slum landlord in an inner city" mud all the while having had their own connection to that very "slum landlord!!" It's just like Obama says, the Clinton's will do and say anything to regain power. Something else to consider is that those kind of photos are usually taken because the person (Rezko) has been a very considerable financial contributor. Know I don't have any hard evidence that this is the case but I would take the odds that it was such a situation. I'm sure some reporter is digging deep to find out how much, if any, money was donated to them from this so-called buddy of Obama.
Clinton quickly tried to shift the conversation in this video:
Clinton then argued that the debate between the two candidates should focus on their position on important issues, and implied that she was the most viable candidate to defeat Senator John McCain if he was the Republican candidate.
"Let's focus on what we want to do for the country and most importantly focus on the great difference between us and the Republicans," she argued. "Senator McCain has said it would be fine with him if we were [in Iraq] 100 years. It's not fine with me."GOI: Well if that's the case then why did you throw this Rezko crap out there in the first place Hillary?!! If the Clinton's want to get into the weeds then let's take them on and pull out all their dirty laundry from the past. I don't think they want to go down that road but you better believe that the Republicans would pull out all their skeletons from their closet should she be the Democratic nominee. We need to remind people and jog their memories as to how controversial her candidacy would be. If you want to bring the country back together then Hillary Clinton is not your candidate, she would keep this country divided and fractured. Obama has proven that he can bring people from both sides together as he gets a lot of support from independent moderates.
I don't want to have buyers remorse should we be so stupid to nominate her baggage ladened self. I don't want to hears Dem's say a month into her nomination, "Oh shit, we made a huge mistake."
Plus, look which young, idealistic politician said good things about Reagan in October of 1991:
Ronald Reagan, Clinton [Bill Clinton] said, deserved credit for winning the Cold War. He praised Reagan's "rhetoric in defense of freedom" and his role in "advancing the idea that communism could be rolled back."
"The idea that we were going to stand firm and reaffirm our containment strategy, and the fact that we forced them to spend even more when they were already producing a Cadillac defense system and a dinosaur economy, I think it hastened their undoing," Clinton declared.---End of Transmission---
