Election o8, Hillary's RFK Comment Merely 'Careless' or Calculated?

Alec MacGillis has an article in The Washington Post that talks to the issue of Hillary Clinton's RFK assassination comments and Barack Obama's response. Alec writes that, Barack Obama spoke publicly today for the first time about Hillary Clinton's invocation of Robert F. Kennedy's assassination, telling a Puerto Rico radio station that he took Clinton's word that she meant no harm.

"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," he said in an interview with Radio ISLA. "Senator Clinton says that she did not intend any offense by it, and I will take her at her word on that."

AAPP: What the hell was Hillary thinking when she said, "We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California." Well as Alec noted in the article, speaking to reporters yesterday, Clinton sought to clarify the comment.


"Earlier today I was discussing the Democratic primary history, and in the course of that discussion mentioned the campaigns that both my husband and Senator Kennedy waged in California in June 1992 and 1968, and I was referencing those to make the point that we have had nomination primary contests that go into June. That's a historic fact." she said. "The Kennedys have been much on my mind the last days because of Senator [Edward] Kennedy, and I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation, and particularly for the Kennedy family, was in any way offensive. I certainly had no intention of that whatsoever."

AAPP: OK so now we know it is not the first time, as reported in The Washington Post there have been "several previous instances in the past three months when Clinton referred to Robert Kennedy's assassination in discussing her decision to stay in the race for the duration." It appears that Hillary Clinton is truly a calculating woman who would rather see Obama end up like RFK.

Hillary creating a level of fear - Did Hillary Just Call for the Assassination of Barack Obama?

What is so disgusting Hillary is probably aware (as reported by Anne E. Kornblut), "a Washington Post-ABC News poll taken in March, nearly six in 10 Americans said they were worried that someone might try to harm Obama (Ill.) if he were the nominee -- more than double the percentage who said they were worried about the same for Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the presumptive Republican nominee."

Get this, Among African Americans, the concern was even greater: More than eight in 10 said they would be worried about Obama's safety, including 55 percent who said they would be "very concerned" (20 percent of whites said they would have that level of fear)."

AAPP: Hey get this I'm not the only blogger concerned about Hillary's madness. Check out the post by,Electronic Village, Francis L. Holland, Jack and Jill Politics, The Unapologetic Mexican, Pam Spaulding at Pam's House Blend and Pandagon, My Private Casbah, Ultraviolet Underground, All About Race and many others.

Come on folks, we all know the underlying thought behind Hillary's comments. Hillary was calling out every bigoted redneck, every White Citizens Council member, every KKK member, every Aryan Nation member to do what? Francis L. Holland sees it very clear. Did Hillary Just Call for the Assassination of Barack Obama?

This woman makes AAPP sick, she does not deserve to be in the running for anything. How can she run the United States government when she cannot control her tongue with all this assassination talk, and she surely had problems controlling her man in the White House. Would she ever be able to control him if considered for the Vice Presidential role? I think that Obama would be a fool to select her as a VP running mate. He would have to have food tasters around him 24/7 as he surely could not trust her.

"Hillary Clinton's assassination comments must be taken seriously.
There is beginning to be a pattern developing here." - Pastor Kyev Tatum, AfroSpear Member Blog
