If there is one thing the Clinton campaign and their surrogates do have down pat, it is playing the victim:
Former congresswoman and vice-presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro is resigning her fundraising position with Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign after controversial comments she made about Clinton’s rival, Sen. Barack Obama.
Comments by former Rep. Geraldine Ferraro are drawing criticism from the Obama campaign.
“I am stepping down from your finance committee so I can speak for myself and you can continue to speak for yourself about what is at stake in this campaign,” Ferraro wrote in a letter to Clinton. “The Obama campaign is attacking me to hurt you. I won’t let that happen.”
Ferraro told CNN she sent the letter to Clinton Wednesday afternoon.
All she had to do was shut up, but she couldn’t. Instead, she went on the offensive:
Geraldine Ferraro had a full media schedule today. Despite Hillary Clinton’s surface condemnation of her racist comments regarding Barack Obama, she was booked on the Today Show, The Early Show, and yesterday, most insidiously, Bill O’Reilly’s Radio Factor.
And even though her own stupidity and her own mouth are the direct cause of her own demise, she is the victim of the evil Obama campaign. I am really looking forward to four years of Hillary Clinton blaming all of her shortcomings and mistakes on the evil Republicans, aren’t you? Because eight years of “the Democrats are worse” and refusing to accept responsibility has really left the country in such a great place.
