The emergence of Barack Obama as Democratic frontrunner has really raised the level of vitriol in the pro-Hillary camps. Those starving for Billary II have recently accused Obama of being everything from being a "sexist" to a "plagiarist", mocked his supporters reactions to his speeches, dismissed his primary victories as being minor and have even gone so far as to use standard GOP political stunts in questioning Michelle Obama's patriotism.
Nevermind that on policy upon policy there really little difference between Obama and Billary. Nevermind that Obama is appealing to a broad range of voters, even winning the white female vote last night in Wisconsin. Nevermind the many mistakes being made within the Billary campaign--everything from begging for more debates to not making their tax returns public to the hypocrisy of "pimp-gate" to the racial divisiveness shown by Slick Willie before the South Carolina primary back in January. But desperate times call for desperate measures and now with their backs to the wall, the Billary loyalists are beginning to show some of the same shameless tactics that their heroes are notoriously known for. Worst yet, they've made their attacks against Barack ruthless and personal. Any wonder why voters are sending the message of who they think is the real "candidate of change"? That's 9-0 and counting . . .
