Obama Launches New Attack on Bill Clinton

Posted on 1/24/2008 2:04:00 PM

Democrat Barack Obama has aggressively come out Bill Clinton, criticizing the latter for making false statements. According to Obama, the former president has often made inaccurate statements while campaigning for his wife, Hillary Clinton. Obama had earlier warned that he would be confronting Clinton on this issue.

With South Carolina's Democratic primary approaching, Obama seemed intent on putting up an aggressive stance. Speaking to ABC's "Good Morning America" show, Obama said, "The only thing I want to make sure of is that when he goes after me, that he goes after me on the basis of facts and policy differences, and, you know, stuff isn't just made up." Again, on NBC's "Today Show," Obama countered, "It's just that, I think, in the Clinton campaign, they have had former president Clinton delivering a bunch of inaccurate statements about my record. So, naturally, I've got to make sure that those are corrected."

The two leading Democratic candidates, Obama and Hillary Clinton have been sparring with each other for some time now. At a Democratic debate, Obama and Clinton hurled accusations of dishonesty, retracting on policy issues and dishonest campaigning.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has been campaigning in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She countered a poll result that showed Obama riding on a wave of black support to overtake her, denying that she would give up South Carolina to Obama. According to this poll, Obama was leading by 43 percent. According to the poll, Obama was leading at 43 percent. Clinton came behind at 24 percent, while John Edwards followed with 15 percent. According to another Field Poll survey from California, however, Clinton enjoyed a 39-27 percent lead over Obama from Democratic and independent votes.

Hillary Clinton reacted to Obama's attacks by saying that his allegations showed that he was "frustrated" due to his poor performance in New Hampshire and Nevada. "He clearly came last night looking for a fight, and he was determined and launched right in," she said referring to the attack on her husband.

However, Senator John Kerry, who is supporting Obama, condemned Clinton's response as a "swiftboating" tactic.
