(CNN) – Hillary Clinton’s campaign accused surrogates for Barack Obama of resurrecting her controversial comments over Bosnian sniper fire Saturday.
"One of the inherent duties of the president of the United States is to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Memorial Day,” said Gen. Walter Stewart on an Obama campaign conference call on the issue of Bosnia - remarks circulated by the Clinton campaign Saturday afternoon.
“Now we can assume, and let's keep in mind that Senator Clinton has said she was under sniper fire, or she joked about, which to me was the cruelest part of all this, she joked about it with Jay Leno. … Imagine the lack of moral authority she has now to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Memorial Day.”
Clinton had faced criticism for claiming that her plane landed under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia she made as First Lady.
The Clinton campaign pointed to Obama’s statement at Wednesday night’s debate that his campaign only commented on the Bosnia incident when asked. "When it comes to negative campaign tactics, Senator Obama has been a hypocrite from day one, decrying attack politics from one side of his mouth while he and his campaign wage a character assassination effort from the other,” said Clinton spokesman Phil Singer. “The juxtaposition of Senator Obama’s comments in the debate and the remarks made on his campaign conference call this afternoon prove the point."
I agree Obama is a hypocrite – I just finished watching him on TV calling Hillary down for being petty and not talking about the issues and there he was doing so much worse, Hillary has had to defend her every word and action as he is ready to pounce and turn it around into something negative, I think he is too cocky and smart alecy to be the president, same goes for his wife. Everyone please think once then twice and vote for Hillary.
Shut your mouth up please.
Can you spell...whinning?????
HRC has no right to call anyone down for repeating the lie that she told, not once, but 3 times. Yes, a "misspeak" can happen, but not the same "misspeak" 3 times. With her negative campaigning and throwing the "kitchen sink" at Obama, I don't blame them for reviving the Bosnia airfield lie for not only Pennsylvanians to reconsider, but for all of us.
We all know she's a liar.
Is this the same Clinton who was just on TV a few days ago trying to dredge up 40 year old things on Obama???? Was it not just this MORNING you Pansies we crying about someone COMPLAINING???
And you WONDER WHY people are SICK of HER??
Just how delusional the Clinton campaign could be? Just let it go dude, it's over
I guess this is what makes news for you, right cnn?
THATS THE FACTS. OBAMA HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT A LIER AND A BIG HYPOCRITE THROUGH THIS WHOLE RACE. HIS SUPPORTERS ARE SO BRAINWASHED, THEY THINK HE IS GOD.
Wow – sure blame Obama for setting the tone. Anybody who buys that one might be interested in a bridge I'm selling.
I also wouldn't blame a military person in Obama's camp for particularly taking umbrage at Clinton's Bosnia lie.
After all she only "apologized" during the debate and even then gave a bizarre statement of "not saying what I knew to be the facts." Prefaced by "Well, I'm not dumb". ????
Why would she joke about such an act
How many people have died under sniper fire or injured
And she jokes about it?
How low can you go?
WOW FULL PANIC MODE!!
We were expecting that this weekend. Hillary is soooo predictable.
i'm just so sick of her..........
can she for once do the right thing and endorce my man ,sen obama?
billary u r the worst person for this job...
Hillary Clinton definitely has more "experience" than Senator Obama (when it comes to being a hypocrite). You go girly!
Years from now the Clinton's will be remembered as the joke of the 08' campaign.
I don't understand how Sen. Obama talks about changing politics and then allows his campaign to engage in the type of dirty tactics he claims to be against....
I don't like this double standard.... I may have to rethink my vote for Obama
This is so sad! Clinton campaign name calling? Grow up please our future is at stake!
I am beginning to think Hillary is a good canidate but has hired horrible campaign staff and advisors. Therefore she will lose the nomination. Maybe its best she is not the President if she does not have the judgement to hire good staff.
In life we are all hyprocrites on one subject or another. No one is perfect.
I guess this is one of those cases where "what's sauce for the goose is not sauce for the gander"?.
Please anybody, save us from this woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hillary can keep spitting out more of the same crap we've been hearing from day one!! keep going Hill you're digging yourself into an even larger whole, hopefully one big enough to smother your voice!!
Totally agree he is hypocrit. He has done nothing but go negative all weekend. His ads are negative too. Mr. I am above negative politics. RIGHT!
I wish the Clinton campaign would just stop creating unnecessary drama.
It's madding and is pushing more and more Obama supporters to McCain, if she were to be the nominee. Although, I think it is ludicrous that any Obama OR Clinton supporter would vote for McCain if their nominee of choices doesn't win...that is what is happening because of all this playground bickering!!!
Supporting the Democrats All The Way To The Oval Office!!!
I'm curious... why is CNN giving Clinton free advertising?
I won't be fooled by his words that mask his dirty-trick actions anymore. Hillary puts out solutions and he is just attacking like he shouldn't be bothered with the voting process anymore. He isn't even near having the job and he has already CHANGEd his tune to being just another politician that gives our process a bad name
I guess the Clinton campaign has adopted the Karl Rove tactic of calling the opponent the thing you are most guilty of. She's quite a student! Gutter ball at it's best!
HRC your done. Give it up!
I fear that Hillary's having adopted the Rove approach is working.
Any Democrat who votes for her should immediately switch Party registration to Republican, because that's what she has become - she has returned to the Goldwater Republican she was when she entered Wellesley.
What's worse is that she now combines that authoritarianism with liberal policies, so as to fool voters who don't even know that even a liberal top-down (dictatorial) approach is disastrous for America.
Barack is bottom-up, and Hillary can't stand his success with an authentic bottom-up approach. He is a true progressive, and Hillary is only a liberal Republican. That's why (as was headlined in today's huffingtonpost.com) “Clinton Slams Democratic Activists At Private Fundraiser” in which Hillary condemned moveon.org and other online activist groups, saying, “they flood into these caucuses and dominate them.” She also accused moveon.org specifically, saying “MoveOn didn’t even want us to go into Afghanistan.” MoveOn promptly responded to that lie by saying, “MoveOn never opposed the war in Afghanistan, and we set the record straight years ago when Karl Rove made the same claim.”
All she is is one lie after another, and anybody who votes for her is just one of her millions of fools.
