MSNBC ran a video this morning of Obama trying to heal the rift in the Democrat party by raising some funds for the Hillary Clinton campaign during a stop in New York City. Problem is he forgot. He finished his whole speech, was walking off stage to music and then ta-da! He remembered and ran back to ask for some funds.
Listen how they introduce the video on MSNBC:
“As cool and as suave as he is”
No shills there huh?
This was an event designed to get the two sides together and oh boy, did he fail this one:
It was supposed to be a moment for Obama to soothe some of the tension that still exists between the two camps. It was supposed to be a chance for Obama to solicit donations to help retire Clinton’s campaign debt, that could total $30 million. It was supposed to be all that. The only problem is, he almost forgot.
He delivered a 32-minute speech to the crowd of 1,000 people at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Park Avenue in New York City, and began walking off the stage to Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, and Delivered.”
…Obama seemed to realize he was about to fuel the feud-fire by his forgetfulness, and quickly rushed back on stage, saying, “Hold on a second guys, I was getting all carried away!” And then, the pitch: “Sen. Clinton still has some debt. And I could have had some debt if I hadn’t won, so I know the drill. There are many supporters of mine here who have not yet given something to help her retire that debt.”
In fact, estimates are that the Obama camp has only raised about $100,000 to help Clinton so far.
Feel the love? Think this will bring those Hillary supporters into the Obama flock?
Hillary is already humiliated by losing this race, being in debt to her eyeballs, and then asking Obama to help get her out of debt and what does Obama do? He pretty much forgets she exists. But I guess its hard to think about others when the only important one who exists is yourself. Lets be honest, the man is a arrogant elitist snob who behaves as if he is due the Presidency. Hopefully he continues on pissing off those Hillary supporters.
