Penn On Obama: He Can’t Win General Election
Well, more Penn Spinâ„¢ today, and this is by far the most telling yet. Because it betrays Clinton’s strategy…attack Obama so much that he can’t get out of the primary season. Not that it’ll work, but that’s what they’re trying to do.
Mark Penn made the comment during a conference call in which the Clinton campaign and two of her supporters — Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter — argued that Obama has sent Pennsylvanians a bad signal by allegedly downplaying the importance of that state’s April 22 primary. […]
It’s in the last 20 seconds or so that he says Obama “really can’t win the general election.” […] he also says that “if Barack Obama can’t win” in Pennsylvania, “how could he win the general election?” […]
Later, a reporter asks what he meant. Clinton campaign communications chief Howard Wolfson jumps in to say that “Mark did not say that.”
Then Penn says that if Obama doesn’t win the Pennsylvania primary, it “raises serious questions” about whether he can win the general election.
Haha, I like how Wolfson claims Penn didn’t say what he said. Fortunately, we have these things called audio recordings. If you jump over to the link I’ve provided you can listen to the whole thing.
Here’s the deal, the Clintons don’t care about the Democrats. They only care about themselves. And this latest exchange should tell you all you need to know about their campaign.
Well, that is unless Clinton disowns Penn’s statements and kicks him out of the campaign.
I’m not holding my breath.
