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."

    The nastiness of these comments about Hillary Clinton is DISTURBING. Most candidates would have been beaten down by now. I admire her for being able to withstand it and continuing to fight. This is the kind of person I want as President.

    Exactly so Mr. Obama can say whatever he want. Why if Sen Hilary says something it will be deemed as racist or wrong. So when he does become the president whatever a white man says about him would this be termed as racial? please why does someone not see the light?

    Bill Clinton collected $800,000 from Columbia for Speeches. No wonder she is fighting so hard to win the Presidency. They have all these people to pay back.

    There is no free lunches in this world. The Clintons can't be trusted

    Joyce ~ Obama's money is coming from people like me, hard-working, educated people who are excited tthat FINALLY there is a candidate that motivates, inspires, and impresses. I give $25 at a time as yes, I am a single mom who pays the mortgage and puts food on the table for my kids. I feel that this is an investment in my children's future.

    With all the money Obama gets from people he can afford to pay each and everyone of us to vote for him. Don't spend all the money on TV and radio ads stand out by the polling station and hand out money to voters who vote for you. This election is being brought by money, not by knowledge.

    Do you love the story about Obama camp calling for more "white people" to be positioned behind Michelle O. at a speech?????? Cracks me up...If Hillary had called for more "black people" she would have been called a racist....What a freaking JOKE!!!! 🙂

    At this point, I don't even think H.R.B. (Block) can even help H.R.C. (Clinton) on her income taxes! 🙂

    Barack Obama criticizes Hillary Clinton every single day and no one seems to care. He calls her calculating, disingenuous, every name in the book on her personal character and yet she gets attacked any time she opens her mouth to criticize Obama, even when it's on political tactics or policy. How about we take note of the fact that what she is saying is TRUE and that Obama is completely misleading everyday people in those ads. Is that the Change we all want?

    Now, Hillary. Obama has all but won this race. You don't need
    tto get nasty here. I'm just saying. Hillary, don't be getting yourself
    so worked up. You won't end up in debt from your unpaid Campaign
    Bills, but don't quit now!!!!! For God's sake Hillary, the women who
    love you will be sending you lots of money for your past due bills.
    God only knows what would happen to you and Bill should you
    have to dip into your millions!!!!!

    I simply cannot trust Obama. He is weak on ideas, weak on solutions, and weak on facts.

    Thank you Hillary for staying tough and strong.

    Rise Hillary rise.

    Hillary doen't know how to run a clean campaign.

    All she can do is blame others and lie all the time.

    How is she staying tough and strong when she blames others all the time?

    The add is very misleading and it can be found on Fact check.org that in fact Obama does have support from oil company relatives and supporters........check it out.........it is false advertising

    The word 'Lobbyist" has a negative connotation to it. The fact is, there are Lobbyists for every cause.
    The difference becomes, what KIND of lobbyists are working on your campaign.
    Of course Obama has lobbyists working on his campaign! What he is opposed to are the Oil, Insurance, Corporate, etc. lobbyists that get to buy their way into and out of everything.

    Isaac, Isaac, Isaac– I do not know about your "mental status;" but how can anyone with the brain of a bird ever believe what Hillary (or Bill) says publicly? "I never.. to that woman,...""
