That Bad for Obama?

The information in this Club for Growth PAC release is interesting all on its own. It could just be a coincidence, but could it also be significant that they’re going after after Hillary today?

The proof is in the pork: News reports reveal that Hillary Clinton has requested a whopping $2.3 billion in earmarks for the Fiscal Year 2009. This staggering number is nearly triple the largest amount of pork projects received by any Senator this year.

“Although Hillary Clinton joined Barack Obama and John McCain in voting for a one-year earmark moratorium this year, it is clear the move was nothing more than political showmanship,” said Club for Growth President Pat Toomey. “Senator Clinton was happy to support earmark reform when she knew the bill would not pass, but when it comes to being a leader on the issue Senator Clinton is nowhere to be found.”

The endless glowing profiles of O’Rourke in every publication from Vanity Fair to ... Read More
