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."

    Ahh, but what she doesn't tell you is that she voted for that same bill.
    Obama has collected $213,884 from employees of the oil and gas industry as of Feb. 29th, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Clinton has collected $306,813 from the same sources.
    Neither one can prevent private citizens who happen to work for oil companies from donating to their campaigns. Out of 140 million dollars in campaign contributes to each of the canidates 200-300 thousand is insignificant. What OBAMA promises is that he won't allow the OIL company voices to drown out the voices of his more than 2 million other contirbutors.

    Obama is no different from any other politico. Its just that he has a slicker front end and no one really knows who is behind him or what he really is about.
    Hillary & McCaine – like Obama – more politicos – the difference is we already have read their "book".
    For President – Hillary or McCain
    The devil you know is always better than the devil you don't.
    AND their ALL devils!

  5. Hispanics now for Obama

    How can the media have positive coverage of someone who can't seem to be positive? The media is not making a fool of Hillary, she is doing that on her own.

    Hmmmmm ready on day one?... her campaign is a train wreck, bankrupt and fiscally incompetent . Even UCLA is sending a collection agency after them for money owed. If she wasn't Hillary Clinton she would be out of this race a long time ago.

    I would like to see one intelligent conversation regarding the candidates. I do Notice that most of the Hillary supporters use all saps to SCREAM at us. Tone down the rehtoric and talke normally. You are sounding as SHRILL as she does.

  10. If your smart

    You will pick somebody to lead us that is able to run this economy and get this country back on track. It's a bad time for somebody wholly untested in any meaningful leadership role to be trying out.

    I laugh seeing the venomous, ugly, and downright humiliating comments from Obama supporters. Somehow calling Obama a uniter and see his supporters blogs here goes to show what a farce his campaign is! And it reinforces my choice in mature and MORE experienced politicians.

    Can't the American People see whats is taking place here! Obama is all talk and hasn't told the truth since he started campainging. How can some, even think of electing him. I just can't see him as my president, moreover, I can't see his wife as first lady. ugh! and another ugh! I am a minority so you can't say I am a biggot-but what they both claim in their out spoken words "that they are finally happy to be Americans" thats to much. I sure they both feel tsame way. He just wants fame and if he gets the nomonation, don't count on me to vote!

    I voted for Bill Clinton twice and at the beginning of the primaries, was confident in Hillary. Now I'm just highly disappointed in the money and power hungry Clinton family. Superdelegates, wake up!! Loyalty only goes so far. Remember you oaths to the people you represent!

    I wonder if the APWU realizes that their interests are just as "special" as anybody elses.

    I'm an Obama backer and I'm glad he got this endorsement. But it is ironic how everyone else's causes are "special interests", while their own cause isn't.

    Big Bill from Boise – why is it that these days most Hillary supporters argue like FOX News and Rush Limbaugh? Is it just coincidence that you take the same approach, or is my fear that Hillary Clinton is a "conservative" in disguise materializing?
