Dem Congressman reveals Clinton’s true “colors”

A Democratic superdelegate is apparently telling tales out of school:

A Democratic superdelegate from New Jersey said this week he is worried that unifying the party behind Barack Obama may be difficult because the Clinton camp “has engaged in some very divisive tactics and rhetoric it should not have.”

U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews, who supported Hillary Clinton throughout the primary season, disclosed he received a phone call shortly before the April 22 Pennsylvania primary from a top member of Clinton’s organization and that the caller explicitly discussed a strategy of winning over Jewish voters by exploiting tensions between Jews and African-Americans.

“There have been signals coming out of the Clinton campaign that have racial overtones that indeed disturb me,” Andrews said at his campaign headquarters in Cherry Hill Tuesday night after he lost his bid for the Democratic U.S. Senate nomination.

“Frankly, I had a private conversation with a high-ranking person in the campaign … that used a racial line of argument that I found very disconcerting. It was extremely disconcerting given the rank of this person. It was very disturbing.”

Andrews said the phone call came after he angered the Clinton camp by making some positive comments about Obama. He would not disclose the caller’s name because of the private nature of the conversation.

Bullies that they are, the Clinton camp angrily fired back by rubbing salt in the wounds of Andrews’ recent loss:

“Comments like these, coming so soon after Congressman Andrews’ crushing defeat, are sad and divisive,” said Clinton’s chief national spokesman, Phil Singer.

Notice they didn’t deny the allegations… could there possibly be a recording of the call floating around somewhere?

But the obvious question is why would Andrews say something like this if it weren’t true? What could he possibly stand to gain by manufacturing such a story? Sure he had just lost an election but so what? Andrews did in fact point out that he waited until AFTER his loss to make his comments because he “didn’t want people to think I was trying to win over Obama supporters in the primary.” So any ulterior motive is essentially out the window.

A similar but more interesting question is why would Andrews say something like this if it WERE true? A few short years ago you just didn’t DO this to the Clintons. Every Democratic congressman knew it was the kiss of death to speak above their breath about the Sopranolike goings on behind the scenes with this pair.

But with Obama becoming the new media darling and Billary losing their grip on the Democratic Party leadership we are starting to see a shift in the tide. We have already heard such complaints from James Clyburn and now Rob Andrews has chimed in. How many more? I predict that we can expect a bevy of these kinds of stories to start coming out soon — the Clintons have managed to piss a lot of people off during this campaign.

But the most interesting question of all… who made the call? Was it a he and did he perhaps have an Arkansas accent? Andrews did make it a specific point to emphasize the “rank” of this person. There are a handful of people could have been of course. But it’s still an intriguing if not entertaining thought to toss about.

In any event its so good to see the Clintons finally being revealed for the exploitive thugs they are and have always been. THIS is the Bill and Hill I have always known.
