You'd be right to think that history is repeating itself the way Hillary Clinton is running her campaign for president.

 

From tapping Bill Clinton's network of political cronies to co-opting his triangulation doublespeak to questionable donations and fundraisers, Hillary is following Bill's campaign playbook to a tee.

 

What's most alarming is that Clinton's campaign has taken contributions from questionable sources. Hillary has already returned $1.3 million to donors since July, including $800,000 tied to former fugitive Norman Hsu. This is eerily similar to the donations the Clinton/Gore ticket received from foreign nationals.

 

Hillary has already raised $90 million for her campaign. She will top $100 million by the end of the year. Add in hundreds of millions more that MoveOn.org, Big Labor and other Liberal special interest allies will spend to defeat Republicans, and you can see the challenge we face in retaining the White House and regaining Congress.

 

Republicans have the right vision for America. Our candidates champion the principles of keeping taxes low to grow our economy, winning the War on Terror, limiting the growth of government, and reinvigorating our culture of personal responsibility. We can beat Hillary's higher taxes, government control and dependency, retreat and defeat plans if we get our message past the Liberal media filter.

This race took a sharply negative turn yesterday.

 

With recent polls giving Barack the lead in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, and just three weeks left before the Iowa caucuses, the attacks on Barack's character that Hillary Clinton has called "the fun part" of this campaign have reached a new low.

 

In an increasingly desperate effort to slow Senator Clinton's slide, the focus of the Clinton campaign has moved from Barack Obama's kindergarten years to his teenage years.

 

On Wednesday, their top advisor in New Hampshire tried to recycle old news by smearing Barack for experimenting with drugs as a young man -- something Barack candidly wrote about years ago in his memoir and has since talked about with young people in an effort to teach them the lessons he learned from his mistakes.

 

The only way to stop these kinds of tired, desperate attacks is to demonstrate very clearly that they have a real cost to Senator Clinton's campaign.

 

These remarks crossed a line that should never be crossed in a Democratic primary. In fact, even Republicans think it's beyond the pale. When asked about this very topic recently, one of the GOP presidential frontrunners actually commended Barack's candor and honesty.

 

It's a sad day when a Democrat running for president takes up a line of attack that even a potential Republican opponent refuses to dignify.

 

Make no mistake -- this kind of attack is becoming a pattern as Clinton's support declines.

 

Since the last time I wrote to you about their attacks, the Clinton campaign has mailed brochures in Iowa that distort Barack's health care plan, produced negative television ads for New Hampshire, and actually sent emails asking for information that could help them smear Barack's efforts to fight poverty and joblessness as a community organizer in Chicago.

 

It's up to you to demonstrate to the Clinton campaign that these kinds of attacks will backfire and make us stronger.

 

Growing outrage at this line of attack already has the Clinton campaign backtracking in the media, but it's up to us to stop these tired, petty tactics once and for all.

 

Please respond and make your voice heard for a new kind of politics. Let's bring real change to America.

In Hillary Clintons' campaign in attacking barack, it shows what the democrat party really thinks of the African American vote.

 

If the democrats win? The African American Community losses "Remember the Latino vote?".

 

As a republican I'm wondering if the African American Community is willing to Commit Economic as well as Political Suicide?

I think it is interesting to listen to Republicans call Latino people illegals. I think Hillary is the best supporter for Hispanic Americans.

I am Latino, and it's only the ones that are here illegally, and you are also right; Hillary has been quietly gathering support of the very people who are in FAVOR of illegal immigration.

 

As well as the DNC who have been hiring folks who are ALL IN FAVOR OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

<~~~~~~~~~~ That is why I am wondering if the African American Community is willing to commit economic as well as political suicide.

 

The flip side is that your side thinks that it can swing the Latino vote to your side with it only costing the black community only 19 to 23% of the jobs. But that is of course if people like me do not interfere "Which is wishfull thinking on your side".

What is most remarkable is how Hillary has spent this year fighting Republican efforts to give our intelligence services the ability to monitor terrorist calls coming into or out of the United States. In other words, the Clinton attack machine is apparently fine with listening in on phone calls if it bolsters her political ambitions -- but Hillary doesn't want to give America's intelligence agencies the ability to conduct surveillance on terrorists plotting to attack our nation.

 

This isn't the first time we've seen Hillary practice such craven political opportunism. She's flip-flopped on virtually every issue having to do with the War on Terror. For example, after claiming that she would 'of course' provide funding for our troops, she turned around and voted against legislation providing them the resources they need to execute their mission in the most safe and effective way possible. She more than once said that she believed it would be a mistake to set a date certain for withdrawing our troops from Iraq, but then voted to establish a timetable for surrender from this vital front in the War on Terror.

 

America has already seen this program and they decided to change the channel. We cannot afford four more years of the Clintons!
