Clinton camp hits Obama in new radio ad

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton's presidential suggests in a new Pennsylvania radio ad that Barack Obama is being misleading by claiming he doesn't take money from oil companies.

"In his TV ads, Barack Obama sounds like he'll take on the oil companies…What he doesn’t tell you is that “no candidate does….they cant,” according to the Annenberg Center’s Factcheck.org," the ad's narrator states. "It's been against the law for companies to donate to candidates for a hundred years."

"Obama also doesn't mention that he voted for the Bush Cheney energy bill," the narrator adds. "It was called a piñata of perks and the best energy bill corporations could buy."

    I'd rather have someone who voted for a Bush energy bill than someone who voted for a Bush/Cheney war that has cost us over 4,000 brave American lives.

    Nobody trusts Hillary Clinton anyway. She's a proven shameless liar.

    The energy bill argument does not hold water – this was for the biggest part about green energy. The oil companies actually had a small tax increase out of that deal.

    Clinton should worry about her NAFTA-Gate and Colombia-Gate ... as well as her Hospital-Gate and Bosnia-Gate.

    Running around pointing fingers at windmills really does not repair that damage.

    I feel sorry for you Hillary.
    As long as you keep going negative, Obama will keep on winning.

    You know how it feels when you feel the presence of evil...like when the hair on the back of your neck stands up straight and you get goosebumps?

    That is the reaction I have everytime I see her face.

    So much for the Clinton camp trying to stay positive. Dean should have a field day with this.... you will do anything to win Clinton... misconstrue the truth and throw the kitchen sink.

    Obama is saying that he doesn't take money from lobbyists and special interest groups – not oil companies. Look who is misleading the public. A high percentage of donations to the Obama campaign are $100 or less, whereas the Clinton campaign gets most of her funds from big donor, who are likely to be special interest groups, wealthy donors who are looking for favors in return. For example, why do you think Bill Clinton is backing the Columbia treaty – it is reported he is receiving $800,000 from investments in Columbia!!

    More Negative attacks from Hillary. That still doesn't change the fact that Hillary's campaign is run by Lobbyists and Special Interests. Why don't you actually talk about policy Hillary. Have negative attacks EVER worked for you thus far?

  23. Hispanics now for Obama

    Why does she keep trying to go negative on Obama instead of listing her own positives? I'm starting to believe that maybe she doesn't have anything positive to say about her own character, so she then decides to "kitchen sink" Obama.

    Is this all you have to offer Hillary?
    I'm truly disappointed 😦

    Doesn't her campaign team realize the detrimental effect of their negative campaigning? She needs to convince people on the ISSUES – HRC will never convince people that someone else is more morally contemptible than herself. Wrong tack to take.

  25. Huge shock

    I have some sad news for all of you who think electing a different president is going to end this war. I was around in the 60's when the vietnam war was being protested. In the streets with blood. Nobody is protesting this one. They are not shooting you on your college campus because you are protesting this war. 50,000 American soldiers have not died in this conflict as they had in vietnam. The sad truth is, we are there and we are gonna be there for a long time to come.
