In response to Hillary Clinton’s condemnation of Obama’s recent comments concerning the bitterness of small town voters, Obama came out strongly at a campaign appearance in Steelton, Pennsylvania.
Here’s the video, it’s about 3 minutes and 50 seconds into it:
Here’s a report on it from On The Road:
STEELTON, PA. — In his harshest rhetoric yet, Barack Obama defended the comments he made at San Francisco fundraiser, admonishing Hillary Clinton for what he calls, playing politics.
â€œI expected this out of John McCain. But Iâ€™ve got to say, Iâ€™m a little disappointed when I start hearing the exact same talking points coming out of my Democratic colleague Hillary Clinton. She knows better. She knows better, shame on her. Shame on her. She knows better!â€
While speaking to union workers at labor gathering here, Obama mocked Clinton, calling her Annie Oakley.
â€œSheâ€™s running around talking about how this is an insult to sportsmen, how she values the Second Amendment, she’s talking like sheâ€™s Annie Oakley!,â€ Obama said.
â€œHillary Clintonâ€™s out there like she’s on the duck blind every Sunday. Sheâ€™s packinâ€™ a six shooter! Come on! She knows better. Thatâ€™s some politics being played by Hillary Clinton. I want to see that picture of her out there in the duck blinds.â€
I don’t think his “shame” on her will erase the effect of his ignorant statements on small town voters. He probably should be apologizing for that instead of going on the offensive. Hillary is winning this round, without question.
