Clinton cites Kennedy assassination in primaries

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sen. Hillary Clinton referred Friday to the assassination of Robert Kennedy in 1968 Democratic campaign as a reason she should continue to campaign despite increasingly long odds.

Clinton was responding to a question from the Sioux Falls Argus Leader editorial board about calls for her to drop out of the race.

“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing the idea of dropping out.

OK, I know I’m not the only one that has ever noticed this, people that Hillary doesn’t like seem to have a strange way of disappearing, several sites have made detailed lists of this phenomenon, here’s the 1st two that a quick Google search turned up, Clinton Body Count and Clinton Death List, and yeah, I know, there will be many that feel it’s just a tin-foil hat theory, but did Hillary just give the ‘warning rattle’ before the strike??

If I was Barack, I’d be a bit nervous too, this is one time I can understand his people making a bit of noise over a political statement made by an opponent, after all, even I feel that he was the brunt of this statement…

Obama has SEVERAL things working against him in today’s political climate, he’s almost, kinda sorta black, he has 3 Muslim names, he was initially raised in an Islamic lifestyle and educated in Islamic schools, and his allegiance to the USA is an area of doubt for many people, that in itself would tend to make me think he would be a prime target for assassins, and a statement like that just uttered by Hillary Clinton, well hell, I’d be nervous too…

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton quickly apologized Friday after citing the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy as a reason to remain in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination despite increasingly long odds.

“I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation and in particular the Kennedy family was in any way offensive. I certainly had no intention of that whatsoever,” the former first lady said.

The episode occurred as Clinton campaigned in advance of the June 3 South Dakota primary.

Clinton apologies for Kennedy remark

And as quickly as she said it, her handlers realized the gravity of her off the cuff reference and an apology was immediately put issued…

Just taking a shot in the dark here, no pun intended, but I am guessing that the conversation went something like this, “Damn it Senator, do you realize that you just opened up a whole can of worms?? If something happens to that, that son of a, uh sorry, uh, to Obama, you’re gonna look really bad“…

Great choice of words there Sen. Clinton, a fine example of your ability to think on the run…

An ever optimistic political pundit that I know was talking to one of his cohorts a few minutes ago and said, “The MSM asked Vince Foster for a comment but Mr. Foster is not available at this time … :roll:

    Um, is it possible she did it on purpose so she could apologize and make herself look better in a twisted, snake-like way? I just don’t see her making mistakes like that, she’s too crafty. She is the white devil!

    Deb N., with Clinton, anything is possible, and she’s desperate too, that’s not a good thing…

    Wow great post about Hillary.

    Hillary’s using the word ” IF” reminds me of Bill Clinton using the word “IS”.

    I would not want to be anywhwere near either of the Clintons’ not for work or just as someone I knew. They have propven to be a dangerous couple to know.

    I said a few weeks back that Hillary is staying in because she knows something we don’t. I’m thinking the ‘fix’ is in one way or the other, if ya get my drift.

  8. TexasFred says:

    Basti, I think you may be right…

    If I was Obama I’d have someone tasting my food, starting the car before I got there, all the usual precautions…

    It may have been a ‘slip of the lip’ but you just never know, the list is long and there are many that defy explanation…

    That woman will do anything to get elected. And I mean anything.

    Listen, I am an older white woman and I think your references to three muslim names and him being muslim only make you look like the typical ugly american. IGNORANT and ARROGANT, and bordering on being a racist. The internet is read around the world, and they currently view us as the most moronic nation on earth. I can’t say I blame them with blogs like this

    Anne, here’s an idea, don’t read here anymore. How’s that grab ya??

    I’m far from ignorant but I am a bit of a racist, I hate Stealth Muzzie halfbreeds, and that is exactly what Obamalamadingdong is.
