This afternoon, Barack Obama responded to Hillary Clinton's comments yesterday when she referenced th assassination of Robert F. Kennedy as a reason she's staying in the race this year. Obama said he believes that Clinton was not trying to be offensive.
"I have learned that when you are campaigning for as many months as Senator Clinton and I have been campaigning, sometimes you get careless in terms of the statements that you make and I think that is what happened here," Obama said in a radio interview today.
"Senator Clinton says that she did not intend any offense by it and I will take her at her word on that."
Once again, we see a ginned up fauxrage by Obama supporters, that, having run it’s course or, as in this case, become counter-productive, now being tepidly denounced by Obama himself.
His campaign covertly fans the flames, then he claims credit for displaying class in attempting to put out the fire.
In South Carolina, he sat quietly while his staff pushed the race card meme, but when the internal talking point memo surfaced, suddenly he gave a wishy-washy statement that the Clintons weren’t running a racist campaign and wanted to “move on.”
Sorry, I’m not buying it.
