Did Obama Preview Rosen’s Attack?
Lookie here, folks! Right here my formerly nicotine-stained fingers, a story from ABC’s Good Morning America on May the 19th of 2008. (That’s almost four years ago for those of you in Rio Linda.) “Sen. Barack Obama ripped into a Republican ad today that targets comments made by his wife, Michelle, and called the GOP tactic ‘low class’ and ‘detestable.’ The Illinois senator told ‘Good Morning America’ that he expects hardball tactics from the Republicans if he becomes the Democratic presidential nominee. ‘But I also think these folks should lay off my wife,’ he told GMA as his wife chuckled beside him.” So The One told the Republicans to lay off his wife.
Let’s go back! This is last Friday morning in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building across the street from the West Wing. At the White House Forum on Women and the Economy, this is Obama setting the stage, perhaps even sending out the instructions to Hilary Rosen.
