Clinton Slams Obama Again: Reminisces About Hunting as a Girl

Apr 12, 2008 7:15pm

ABC News’ Eloise Harper reports: Sen. Hillary Clinton continued her critique of Sen. Barack Obama’s comments about small town America today, and used it to connect herself with the voters her opponent may have alienated.

Speaking about how Americans value their Second Amendment rights and enjoy hunting prompted Clinton to tell a story about her own hunting experience.

"You know my dad took me out behind the cottage my grandfather built on a little lake called Lake Winola outside of Scranton and taught me how to shoot when I was a little girl," she said. "You know some people have continued to teach their children and their grandchildren. It’s part of culture, it’s part of a way of life. People enjoy hunting and shooting because it’s part of who they are. not because they are bitter"

Clinton also repeated some of her earlier lines, saying that she thought Obama’s was "kind of elitist." Clinton repeated lines about faith — and the way she views faith playing a role in society.

"My faith is the faith of my parents and my grandparents," she said. "It’s a fundamental expression of who we are and what we believe in most profoundly and I disagree with Sen. Obama’s assertion that people in our country cling to guns and have certain attitudes about immigration and trade simply out of frustration."

Clinton will spend the day in Pennsylvania on Sunday and will likely be repeating her message about Obama’s comments from San Francisco.
