Obama camp: Clinton would be ‘deeply flawed’ nominee I get great amusement from the Obama camp.
“If Sen. Clinton wants to have a discussion about electability and vetting, we’re happy to have it,” Plouffe also said. “She would be a deeply flawed nominee. There are character issues here that will cause us real problems in the fall.”
I think Plouffe should be concerned about the recent revelations of Mr. Obama’s flaws and the problems he will give the Democrats should be become their nominee rather than that of Mrs. Clinton. Among these are:
- Association with Rev. Wright and his outlandish comments while claiming he knew nothing of them. Calls into question his personal judgment and integrity.
- Obama’s own words, intentional or not, implying a “typical white person” is inherently racist. For me this indicates some possible serious personal issues he has. Again calls into question his true nature and character.
- His Rezko association and all that entails. And once again, brings up questions of his judgment, integrity, and character.
All politicians have some flaws. That there is no doubt about. However, policy differences do no equate out to flaws as Mr. Plouffe seems to indicate. It’s curious that the Obama campaign implies any disagreement with them makes on flawed and yet Mr. Obama’s questionable associations are mischaracterizations or “attacks” by his opponents. Republicans likely will use these instances and others that may come to public awareness against him, should be become the Democratic nominee. He won’t be able to turn a pretty phrase and spin promises of hope and unity and change once the general election comes around to deflect them from public scrutiny. People will want answers, real answers, to their questions on where he stands on a variety of issues.
