Did anyone really believe the mud wouldn’t start flying the day after Hillary Clinton’s campaign pulled as Lazarus? Well, if you did, put down the crack pipe and read this.
The Obama campaign is searching for the deathblow against Hillary, but just like Jason from the Friday the 13th movies, she keeps coming. And, just like the person in those movies who says something like, “There’s safety in numbers, let’s split up,” the Obama camp keeps hitting Jason rather than simply running.
The latest attempt to put down Jason is this story from CNN that quotes the Obama chief strategist David Axelrod asking what Hillary is hiding by not releasing her tax returns. (The Clinton campaign did announce they would release them, on April 15th.)
“What does Clinton have to hide?”
“In the face of her unwillingness to release her tax returns, Hillary Clinton has made the false case in this campaign that she is more electable because she has been fully vetted,” the memo stated. “When it comes to her personal finances, Senator Clinton’s refusal to release her taxes returns denies the media and the American people the opportunity to even begin that process.”
What Axelrod and the Obama campaign don’t seem to realize is this is standard operating procedure for the Clintons and, more importantly, it doesn’t work.
There aren’t very many people in this country that don’t realize, or at least suspect, that the Clintons are corrupt, that they hide things, then deny them, then release the information that proves what their critics have been saying all along and they dismiss it as old news. The Clinton 2-step worked for 8 years, does he really suspect they wouldn’t keep doing it?
