There has been much talk in past weeks about Barack Obama’s heightened security. This was explained away as protection against increased threats that come with the terrority of being a black presidential candidate, but I now believe the reason for the extra security to be otherwise.
I do fear for Obama’s safety, but not because of some hick racist hayseed, but rather from inside his own party.
A glimpse of what Obama recently said regarding Hillary Clinton’s finances could explain why Barack has been stocking up on security:
Sen. Barack Obama called on his rival Sen. Hillary Clinton to release her recent income tax returns – a move the Clintons have long resisted.
Watch the VIDEO HERE.
Strapped for campaign cash, Clinton announced this week that she loaned her presidential committee $5 million of her own personal funds, but it was not immediately clear how she came by that much money.
“I’ve released my tax returns,” Obama said today on his campaign plane, noting that Presidential candidates have a duty to be transparent and accountable.
He said, “The American people deserve to know where you get your income from.”
“Dead man campaigning!”
Cue the “I’m going to devour your soul, peasant!” photo:
Frankly, I differ with Senator Obama — I don’t really want to know any more than I already know about the Clintons, especially if they’re going to be back in the White House.
When they’re in power, the Clintons are like eating hot dogs. I know they’re loaded with a lot of horrific things that aren’t good for me — but I don’t really want to know exactly what.
