Hillary furious Obama sends out false claims and smear job in mailer

Senator Clinton went before the press and held up 2 mailers of Obama's that he's sending out to smear her, that have been proven in the past (when they were sent out before) to be false claims. She accuses him of continued dirty tactics while he claims in his speeches he's above this. The ABC article also says she warns him she can't wait for the next debate in Ohio. (Hopefully she'll now get tough on him and call him out on his many failures and dirty tactics.

As I've mentioned in past posts, here are a few issues that she should hit him on, that Americans should care about:

-he criticized efforts to enact filibuster proceedings against reactionary Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.

-he lent his politically influential and financially rewarding assistance to neoconservative pro-war Senator Joe Lieberman’s (“D”-CT) struggle against the Democratic antiwar insurgent Ned Lamont (while Dem voters across the nation were trying to get Lamont into that Democratic seat).

Corporate interests?

-Nviros have also knocked Obama for his support of corn-derived ethanol and liquid coal, both of which would benefit industries in his home state of Illinois but do little if anything to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions."

Obama dares to campaign about Hillary taking big corp money but:

-He has accepted $159,800 from executives and employees of Exelon, the nation's largest nuclear power plant operator. (plenty more on Exelon, if' you're not aware of the controversy regarding Exelon and Obama, once again you're uninformed)

-Another Obama donor, John W. Rowe, chairman of Exelon, is also chairman of the Nuclear Energy Institute, the nuclear power industry’s lobbying group, based in Washington. Exelon’s support for Mr. Obama far exceeds its support for any other presidential candidate.

-In addition, Mr. Obama’s chief political strategist, David Axelrod, has worked as a consultant to Exelon. A spokeswoman for Exelon said Mr. Axelrod’s company had helped an Exelon subsidiary, Commonwealth Edison, with communications strategy periodically since 2002, but had no involvement in the leak controversy or other nuclear issues.

Obama and Illinois Veterans

VA Links Poor Care To 19 Deaths In Ill

-His graphic dereliction on veteran services and health is disturbing in light of reports showing that Illinois’ disabled veterans are at “rock bottom” — “dead last” — in benefits and claims processing of applications for disability. It is doubly distressing since Obama has repeatedly trumpeted his supposed grand commitment to veterans ...

Obama claimed that "the veterans committee was ‘one of my first priorities."

But Obama has skipped 19 of 37 VA committee meetings in the 109th congress... Obama’s attendance record was the second worst of all Democrats on the committee. reported here

International security is important too, how competent is he?

Doubts about Barack Obama's presidential credentials have crystallized during the past two weeks over his stewardship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's Subcommittee on European Affairs, which has convened no policy hearings since he took over as its chairman last January. That startling fact, first uncovered by Steve Clemons, who blogs on the Washington Note, prompted acid comment in Europe about the Illinois senator's failure to visit the continent since assuming the committee post.. As mentioned here

Right now as I post this CNN is showing Senator Clinton in front of the press holding up the flyers Obama is sending out in Ohio that have been proven to be inaccurate. Afterwards, CNN's comments are completely anti Hillary and pro Obama...It's a blatant smear job against her as usual.
