The first Democratic debate pitting Obama versus Clinton one on one is under way. It didn't take long for Shrillary to make her "day one" message. I love Barack's comeback: it's more important o be right on day one. That underscores her bad decisions on Iraq, Iran, the bankruptcy bill, etc. The first big policy debate is health care. On this issue Clinton has the upper hand. I don't understand why Obama clings to his bad plan.
How many times will Shrillary make her bogus claim about "35 years of public service?" Why does she include the 17 years she worked at The Rose Law Firm where she defended corporate clients like Wal-Mart and Tyson Foods? Does she count that as "public service?" What that says about her isn't attractive.
The next question is about Democrats being labeled "tax and spend liberals." The best defense for this, of course, is that Republicans are "borrow and spend extremists." It is always better to live within your means and avoid the massive debt Republicans have been responsible for the past 28 years. It is about fiscal responsibility and Republicans use this scurrilous term to hide their own own financial and budgetary mismanagement.
