I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

And So It Begins

Apparently, the polls weren’t even closed in South Carolina yesterday and Bill Clinton was already belittling Barack Obama’s victory:

Said Bill Clinton today in Columbia, SC: “Jesse Jackson won South Carolina in ‘84 and ‘88. Jackson ran a good campaign. And Obama ran a good campaign here.”

This was in response to a question about Obama saying it “took two people to beat him.” Jackson had not been mentioned.

Boy, I can’t understand why anyone would think the Clintons are running a race-baiting campaign to paint Obama as “the black candidate.”

Yeah, neither can I.

The Clinton’s are playing with fire here, though, and it would be well-deserved to see them get burned by it.
