Bob Kerrery apologizes for his transparently phony attempted smear of Obama:
I want to sincerely apologize for the remarks I made on Sunday in Council Bluffs, Iowa, after an event at which I endorsed Senator Hillary Clinton’s Presidential candidacy. I answered a question about your qualifications to be President in a way that has been interpreted as a backhanded insult of you. I assure you I meant to do just the opposite.
After you and I met during your primary campaign for the Senate, I wrote a public letter in which I said that that you were among the two or three most talented people I have ever met in politics. Nothing in your performance in the Senate or your campaign for the Presidency has altered that view.
I have said a lot of stupid things. I have said a lot of things that were interpreted incorrectly. I have said a lot of things I meant as a compliment but were perceived as an insult. I understand that this can happen.
But if ANYONE thinks this was an accident, or that this was anything other than more bilge coming from the Clinton camp, I got a bridge to sell you. Lemme guess, you think it was wholly accidental he chose the phrase ‘Islamic Manchurian candidate,’ too.
This is why people like me are instinctively repulsed by Hillary. If you still can not figure it out, go watch this video (via ObWi, where the reactions were spot on):
Pay special attention to Mark Penn. It is almost as if the mouse will slip out of your hand from the slime oozing from Penn. It is so clear what he is doing, he can not even keep a straight face while he is talking. Joe Trippi’s reaction is priceless- that is how normal human beings react to scumbags like Penn.
This Kerrey crap is just more of the same- it is not an accident this sort of rubbish keeps bubbling up from the Clinton crew. As much as I have tried to avoid being tarred as a Clinton hater, and as much as I have really, really tried to give her a fair shot, I think who you surround yourself with says a lot about you (Rumsfeld, Cheney, Addington, anyone?). I have had enough Rovian bullshit for one lifetime. Clinton has got to go.
