(CNN) - Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton hit each other hard Monday, a day before contests in North Carolina and Indiana that could break the deadlock over who will be the Democratic nominee for president.
The Democratic rivals traded shots over Clinton's proposal that the government do away with the federal gas tax for the summer and make up the budget shortfall by taxing what she calls oil companies' "windfall profits."
Obama has dismissed the proposal, saying it's unlikely to help consumers or to become law, prompting Clinton to accuse him of being out of touch with "the hard-working American consumer and the middle class."
Obama flips whichever way the political wind blows. Just look at how he betrayed his pastor. Not that I didn't find Rev Wright's comments outrageous and offensive, because I did. But I'm disturbed how quickly Obama turned his back on a longtime friend and advisor, caivng in to political pressure. I'd have respected him if he'd respectfully laid out his differences, but no. Obama stabbed Wright in the back!! Mark my words, if elected, this lack of conviction will prove disaterous for the US economy. We'll wind up with an economic mess which will make folks fondly remember the "good ole days of W"
Vote Hillary '08!!
Hillary needs to go and have a "gas holiday" right back to New York where she belongs. Myself and many others are just tired of seeing her on television lying and trying to fool the American people.
To all of you voters voting for Hillary Clinton and her cronies, go to "you tube" and type "Mickey Kantor" and you will get a clear picture as to what the Hillary campaign thinks about you. "What good fortune for those in power that people do not think"
Obama looks like the French president. He appears as somebody who is going to resolve everything and to arrange everything. With his speech which has no sense: he wants to change the world. Others always have bad ideas and only he has the best ideas. Vote for Obama is your dreams will change in nigthmare. He will show an amateurism as the French president.
If Indiana votes based on gas tax gimmick, good luck to them time will tell how can Sen Clinton deliver this under present GOP president. As usual talk talk and suck people into believing that she can get the gas tax relief during summer. Wake up voters in Indiana show some judgement do not get sucked into something which is not true you are smarter than this. $1000 credit is better than $30 in summer savings.
Ok..Big Ups to Obama!! Atleast he understands the rules of economics!! If you want ur gas to be $5, then vote hillary. Think people, wake up! A savings of $9 monthly lol, really wont do too much
You have to be able to "buy" gas to get the gas tax break, right?
So is this a trick to get us to buy more gas, so we can rack up a lot of savings?
And if you don't drive? How does this help people who need an extra $30 for food?
It was Obama who supported the same gas tax reduction when he was a state senator in Illinois. In fact he may have written the bill. How come none of the media makes that point? Is there a Obama bias in the media? HKalt
Hillary is a joke. She is playing to an uneducated audience, but I think NC and Indiana are smarter than she is giving them credit for. Wake up, people, She is taking you for idiots!
If Hillary is the choice, then I will vote for McCain.
I really can not stand the lies she tells anymore.
CNN is SOOO pushing Hillary, because the longer she stays in, the more people flock to the CNN website. This "news" group should be ashamed of themselves. Stay OUT of politics... just report the FACTS!
So, what is Obama's proposal? I want a president who helps me. Here and now. I don't care if it's permanent. I just need some help right now. What is Obama thinking?
I`m a Democrat, but whats wrong with the Democratic party? They act like they would rather nominate someone who can win a convention (Barack Obama), than someone who can win an election (Hillary Clinton), because I just checked on Rasmussen Reports and Hillary leads John McCain 47% to 43%,while Obama was losing to McCain by an identical margin 47%-43%.
Go Barack Obama!!!
To the Person who said "listen to Glenn Beck".
Glenn Beck is the biggest idiot that CNN ever hired. Very opinionated.
He thinks his opinion is the only one that "Could ever be Right."
He tells America how to think!
From the first day I ever heard him, I had to quickly change the channel.
WHAT WAS THE PRICE OF GAS BEFORE
WARBUCKS & HILLARY VOTED FOR THE IRAQ WAR?
A democrat in Canada, GIVE UP HILLARY ! YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T WIN
BARRACK OBAMA IS THE MOS PRESIDENTIAL HE HAS CLAS AND MOST IMPORTANT VERY HONEST AND SINCERE.
HILLARY & MCFORGOT VOTED FOR THE WAR THAT
IS TRASHING OUR ECONOMY. HARD TO BELIEVE
THAT SHE NEVER EVEN APOLOGIZED.
WELL HILLARY IS VERY SORRY SHE WON'T GET
A CHANCE AS PRESIDENT TO NOT READ AN
INTELLIGENCE REPORT. BUT AS A SENATOR SHE
PROBABLY WILL & VOTE WITH THE REPUBLICANS.
Hillary needs to tell people the truth and stop the deception. The Bush administration has already said there will be no gas proposals going to congress.
The Superdelagates are fallingnin line like good little soldiers for one reason only. It's called re-election.
To hell with taking the White House back if it means going with the right choice and losing their jobs.
Politics: All about greed, power and money! To hell with doing what is right! Gotta love it!
Hillary look out I see Bosnian Sniper Fire coming your way
ooops I mis spoke :-o
I blame the superdelegates for allowing Sen. Clinton to destroy the Democratic Party. They know she is deceitful, untrustworthy, vicious, selfish and an all out liar.
I'm will wait for the nominee to be decided at the convention, then decide whether I can continue to be a member of the Democratic Party. I live right and follow all the rules and laws. Therefore, I will not be a part of a corrupt Party.
I would encourage all other Democrats to depart from a corrupt party.
Hillary fights for no one but her own ambition. She and Bill are really closet Republicans who have taken the Democratic Party so far to the right, it is not recognizable to someone who chose this Party because it believed in the role of government to help "promote the General welfare," not the welfare of the wealthy.
