RNC Already Using Clinton’s Words Against Obama

Jun 3, 2008 6:03pm

Those scamps at the Republican National Committee have posted a video on Youtube  featuring Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, saying that Sen. Barack Obama, D-NY, lacks the experience necessary to be president.

"In this election we need a nominee who can pass the commander-in-chief test. Someone ready on Day One to defend our country and keep our families safe. And we need a president who passes that test…and when there’s a crisis, when that phone rings, whether it’s at 3 PM and 3 AM, in the White House there is no time for speeches and on-the-job training…

"Senator McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, I will bring a lifetime of experience and Senator Obama will bring a speech that he gave in 2002.

"I think that is a significant difference. I think that since we now know Senator McCain will be the nominee for the Republican Party, national security will be front and center in this election. We all know that.

"And I think it is imperative that each of us be able to demonstrate we can cross the commander-in-chief threshold. And I believe that I’ve done that. Certainly, Senator McCain has done that. And you will have to ask Senator Obama with respect to his candidacy.”

"The video speaks for itself and goes to the central question that will be asked about Barack Obama," said an RNC official. "Democrats throughout the course of this primary campaign have questioned Sen. Obama’s leadership and judgment and that will be a central part of the discourse we engage in with the American people."
