HRC Continues To Pound Obama On "Accomplishments"



“This is becoming more apparent every day. My good friend Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones from Ohio represented me on one of the TV programs in the last day or two— some of you may have seen her. And she was on against someone representing my opponent and for the first time, actually, the host, asked the representative of my opponent to name one accomplishment.

“That is all we’re asking. We’re asking to compare our records. We’re asking to compare our years of service. We’re asking to compare our ideas, our solutions.

“Because it’s not just about my opponent and myself, this election is about you. It’s about what you can expect, what your dreams will be, what your futures hold. Right now too many people are struggling, working the day shift and the night shift, trying to get by without health insurance, just one paycheck away from actually losing their homes. They cannot afford four more years of a president who just doesn’t see or hear them. They need a president ready on Day One to be the Commander in Chief of the United States military.”
