Obama Responding to Clinton Attacks on Good Morning America

I’ve already had several recent posts regarding the manner in which Bill and Hillary Clinton have resorted to lying about Obama’s statements and record. Many prominent Democrats are getting rather upset with Bill. It’s no surprise that Barack Obama is angry and plans to respond. ABC News reports that Obama will be responding on Good Morning America.

Sen. Barack Obama says he’s ready to confront former President Bill Clinton, calling his advocacy on behalf of his wife’s presidential campaign, “troubling.”

In an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts to air Monday on “Good Morning America,” Obama, D-Ill., directly engages Bill Clinton on a series of issues.

“You know the former president, who I think all of us have a lot of regard for, has taken his advocacy on behalf of his wife to a level that I think is pretty troubling,” Obama said. “He continues to make statements that are not supported by the facts — whether it’s about my record of opposition to the war in Iraq or our approach to organizing in Las Vegas.

“This has become a habit, and one of the things that we’re going to have to do is to directly confront Bill Clinton when he’s making statements that are not factually accurate,” Obama said.

Obama was apparently referring to Clinton’s comment that it was a “fairy tale” that Obama has consistently opposed the Iraq war from the start, and that Nevada union officials backing Obama were strong-arming members into caucusing for Obama…

In his interview with Roberts on “Good Morning America,” Obama said the former president has taken his campaigning on his wife’s behalf too far.“I understand him wanting to promote his wife’s candidacy,” Obama said. “She’s got a record that she can run on. But I think it’s important that we try to maintain some — you know, level of honesty and candor during the course of the campaign. If we don’t, then we feed the cynicism that has led so many Americans to be turned off to politics.”

Bottom line: Bill Clinton did have sex with that woman. He lied then, and he is lying now.

    If Obama is going to confront Bill every time he lies, he will be a very, very busy man.

    The challenge is to spend enough time responding to the smears without allowing it to excessively distract from his own message.

    Bill Clinton made his campaign motto clear awhile back.

    It is ‘strong and wrong beats weak and right’…we see him exercise this daily with regards to Obama’s record.
