Clinton: “Empower the voters, blah blah, don’t disenfranchise them.”

Hillary is still clawing for the votes of Florida and Michigan. Still. Here’s what she said today.

Clinton challenges Obama on Michigan vote

“I am here for one simple reason,” Clinton said to a small crowd of supporters gathered at an AFSCME hall. “To make sure Michigan’s votes are counted, and your voices are heard in this election.”

The Obama campaign released a memo Wednesday raising “serious” legal and procedural questions about the Michigan proposal.

Clinton said the matter of Michigan’s delegates boils down to each candidate’s commitment to voting rights and questioned if Obama is committed to “empowering the American people.”

“This is a crucial test,” she said. “Does he mean what he says or not?”

Hillary, I’ll say it to you again. No tear in my beer: you disenfranchised yourselves

If you want to blame someone for this, blame the elected officials in those states that tried to cheat the very rules to which they consented. Those officials are the ones that should have empowered the voters. This is not Barack Obama’s fault.

Hillary Clinton has the weakest arguments of any Democrat I’ve ever seen. Bottom line.

One thought on “Clinton: “Empower the voters, blah blah, don’t disenfranchise them.”

  1. Hillary–where was your opposition when the Michigan DP made its bed? Where was your opposition when you (and everyone else) agreed that Michigan and Florida delegates wouldn’t be seated? Every argument you’ve made was just as true (and more credible) back then as it is now.

    Kinda reminds me of….where was your opposition when you voted “yea” on the war?

    Your judgment is right on the money when you’ve had several months to determine whether your position benefits you.

    Hillary to Michigan: “FREE CANDY! (come and get it)”…the attempt to skirt the rules in Michigan is even more egregious given that Rush & Co. have already told Republican voters to rat-f*ck the Democratic primary by voting for Clinton. You’re really putting the party first, Hill.
