Barack Obama and Thug Politics

September 18, 2008 · Filed Under News 

Bill Clinton has referred to Barack Obama as “a Chicago thug” for the way he conducts himself in politics, and he did little to dispel this notion at a stop in Las Vegas today.

But Obama doesn’t want to get his hands dirty. He’d prefer to outsource the thug behavior to his supporters.

As Obama spoke to a crowd of about 1,500, he stated, “I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

I guess Obama figures if you can’t beat them on the facts, you can try to intimidate them.
