Obama tries to turn table on Hillary...not many buying it...

I know it's silly to expect a politician to take responsibility for anything that they do wrong or misstate and I doubt many people would think that Obama's answer on meeting dictator's of nations was a smart one. Yet rather than to stick to the damage control that his team tried to do to imply he really didn't mean what he said, he's decided to try to turn the tables on Hillary and attack her for her vote on the war. Considering that Obama is now in Congress and has not exactly been forthcoming in being a leader on the issue of the war in Iraq or cutting funding on the war...this comes off to people I've spoken with as "just one more fake finger pointer who won't accept responsibility for anything".

While Clinton was authorizing the Iraq war, this is what Obama was saying in 2002.

The problem with saying you would have voted against the war is that it is just hypothetical. Unless he was actually in a position to vote at the time, he can't really say what he would have done. I think it is great that he has been opposed to the war the whole time, but he still wasn't there.

I am not defending Senator Clinton however. I think everyone who voted for the resolution did so for political reasons and not any national security or terrorism reasons.

Totally agreed Scott, it's very easy to say you would do something differently when you are not in that position. Since Obama has been in office he has not been much different when it comes to taking action on the issue of the war. Neither has Clinton but to pretend as if you were soooo against the war then get elected and do not much more than any of the rest of them? Not something you should bring attention too...

I am fairly certain that I would have voted against the war, but there is no way to know for sure until the time comes. Everyone is principled until they are tested

But, he looks sooo good/cute; that's what REALLY matters ;-)

And Clinton is just showing us that she has cleavage and BALLS, which paints such a scary picture in my mind's eye :-(

If it IS to be a "beauty" contest, we are all in deep doo doo.
