Robert Johnson of BET, now going around South Carolina sliming Barack Obama with, and on behalf of Hillary Clinton(note that his attempt to walk his comment back makes no sense whatever — why be coy, if all he meant was community organizing — was last seen helping George W. Bush repeal the estate tax on the grounds that it was “racist.”
Tell me more about how Hillary Clinton, pal of greedhead billionaires, is the candidate of change? Oh, yeah, and tell me again that it’s just an accident that none of her surrogates can open his mouth without making some sort of coded personal attack on Obama?
As Adlai Stevenson said to Richard Nixon, if the Clintons don’t stop lying about Obama, he’s going to have to start telling the truth about them. And that won’t be pretty, at all, at all.
Here’s the text of the story; make up your own mind.
“To me, as an African American, I am frankly insulted the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Hillary and Bill Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues — when Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood; I won’t say what he was doing, but he said it in his book — when they have been involved,” Johnson said.
Obama wrote about his teenage drug use — marijuana, alcohol and sometimes cocaine — in his memoir, “Dreams from My Father.”
Johnson later said his comments referred to Obama’s work as a community organizer in Chicago “and nothing else. Any other suggestion is simply irresponsible and incorrect,” he said in a statement released by Clinton’s campaign.
