Obama Snubs Hillary At The SOTU Address
The big news made last night at the State of the Union address wasn't what was said by President Bush at the podium. No, as you can see in the news story below, the big news was made in the audience when Barack Obama snubbed Hillary Clinton when he turned his back on her as she shook Ted Kennedy's hand next to him. Of course, the snub is quite mutual since Hillary has also been avoiding personal contact with Obama like he had the plague. This is yet more evidence of their mutual detestation which is going to make this summer's Democrat convention very entertaining to watch. Don't expect to see these two candidates get together after the nomination in a warm kumbaya. For each of them, this contest is a blood sport in which the outcome will be only extreme bitterness withing the party. To get an idea of just how much of a blood sport this contest has become, just check out the HUffington Post THREAD with comments on this news story titled, "No Chitchat Between Clinton and Obama." So let us now watch the HUffies react to the snub in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, preparing later this morning to NOT vote for McCain in the Florida primary, is in the [brackets]:
No Chitchat Between Clinton and Obama
[And there will be no singing of Kumbaya later.]
WASHINGTON — So close, yet so far away _ and so bitter.
[I would LOVE to be a fly on the wall of Hillary's War Room as she rants about Barack!]
Rival Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama came within a foot of each other just before President Bush's State of the Union speech Monday night and managed not to acknowledge each other, and certainly not touch.
[Not even their tongues?]
Clinton, clad in scarlet, crossed the aisle between their seats on the House floor. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the Democratic icon who had endorsed Obama earlier in the day over Clinton, reached out his hand when she came close.
[Teddy would have reached out his hand even quicker if she was a waitress.]
She took it; they shook. Meanwhile, Obama, dressed in a dark suit, had turned away.
The rivals then retreated to their seats, only the aisle and four senators between them.
It was the latest chapter in the increasingly nasty fight between the two leading candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination and capped a dramatic day.
[Only "nasty?" Who wrote this story? Wide Stance Craig?]
Hours earlier, Obama received the endorsements of Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy, the brother and daughter, respectively, of President John F. Kennedy. They were joined by Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., the senator's son.
[Was Patrick carrying Ambien or something stronger in his pocket?]
The only Republican senator still running, John McCain of Arizona, skipped the address to campaign in Florida.
[Fibber McCain preferred to stay down here. And now on to the HUffie reaction to the SOTU Snub...]
Fake smile on the Hildabeast.....she'd really like to stick a bayonet into fat Teddy.
[And stick an apple in his mouth?]
My favorite candidate is now OUT OF THE RACE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
[Is that you, Charles Henrickson? Hee! Hee!]
Also, every dem knows the repubs will do anything and say anything to win POTUS. BUT, with organizations like MoveOn, DailyKos, Talking Points Memo, and record DNC contributions, Obama and the dems will have a strong, campaign front.
[It won't mean a thing because he would have Hillary stabbing him in the back if he is the nominee.]
Yeah, look at Mr Uniter, not a divider, he doesn't even have the class to shake Hillary Clinton's hand. Is he going to turn his back on world leaders, if he doesn't like what they have to say. What a wimp, and a phony this man is. GO HILLARY!
[Is that you, Bill Clinton?]
Her heaving bosom catches his eye. He leans toward her, his lips just inches from hers. Then he remembers...this is a woman who hasn't made love in decades. Time to get back on the campaign trail!
[LOL! The 2008 campaign as a Harlequin romance novel.]
This isn't an election people, This is a MOVEMENT.
[A bowel MOVEMENT?]
Hillary vs. Obama is like watching Joan Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge in 'Johnny Guitar' or maybe one of those 'Women behind bars' movies. If it was Hillary vs. Edwards instead, it would be a good slug-fest but with Obama he's such a lady. "Stop, you're hurting me. You see, I'm black and anything you say is racist".
[With Edwards it would be like watching Joan Crawford and Bette Davis in "What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?"]
I saw Bobby endorse Hillary tonight on a 30 second sound bite. And that was it. No fanfare. The media gave no equal time to Senator Clinton, Booby, Kerry and Kathleen.
[Maybe that is because "Booby" Kennedy has the absolutely WORST speaking voice of anybody in public life and they just wanted to spare us the pain of hearing him.]
This shouldn't be about who snubbed who. I'm just worried that Hillary and Obama really are feeling animosity towards each other. That would be so unfortunate... they're both such respectable, inspirational people. I hate that this race is turning so dirty when it really is a beautiful thing- the first real chance for a female or a black president. I always thought they seemed to highly respect each other but lately I'm afraid that may have changed...
[Let the Blood Sport begin!]
How did Barack manage to purchase a home for 300K under asking? Why did Rezko purchase the lot next to his new home the next day? What did Barack pay Rezko for a 1/3 of the Rezko lot for the expansion of his home? Why did Obama accept 85K (it has grown to 140K now) in contributions from an "influence peddler" who the Chicago papers and DA were investigating? How much legal work did Obama really do in defending Rezko. Are we going to have a RezkoGate with Obama? Barack just admitted to having a 20 year, close friendship with a guy who had been committing Federal Crimes the entire time. Why is Barack the "unnamed politician" in the Federal Indictment?
Just the other day Senators Clinton, Obama and Edwards were all asked can you come together at the end of all this and back whoever is the winner and support them? Clinton and Edwards said whoever is the winner we will stand behind 100%. I was shocked by Obamas response. He said, "We have to wait and see who the winner is." Who does this man think he is? Were in Iraq and he is holding grudges. He does not deserve to be in the Democrat party. Grow up Obama.
[LEAVE BARACK ALONE!!!]
Folks you can count on this much the party will be split in the fall.
Good, I hope you Democrats look at every little reason to denounce him, What color shoes he wears, haircut, snub, arrogance. Because it will reflect just how TOXIC this country, when looking for a president has become. and the Clintons have not helped with this. and will highlight just how Toxic the Clintons have become at campaigning. SAD.....but true.
How do we know this is Obama snubbing Clinton and not the other way around? I have yet to see any indication that Clinton reached out to Obama. Let's see the video-tape and judge from there.
[Let's have an instant replay and let the referees decide.]
Arianna can't stand Hillary and distorts every thing the woman does. Don't forget Arianne divorces her husband after he lost his political bid in California. She is a bitch.
[I thought Arianna divorced her hubby because of his "wide stance."]
