Clinton Supporter Likes Her Answers, Dislikes Her Negativity

nashuacrowds Clinton Supporter Likes Her Answers, Dislikes Her NegativityPat Aurenz, a 45-year-old undecided voter from Nashua, didn’t have a problem with Hillary Clinton saying she would not have gone to war in Iraq as president. “She voted to go to war based on information that was a bunch of lies,” said Aurenz, who sat in the bleachers at a Hillary event in Nashua with her husband (an Obama supporter) and daughter. “If she had the right information, she said she wouldn’t have done it, and I believe her.”

Aurenz, who said she is leaning towards Clinton after hearing her speak, was much less forgiving about Hillary’s new, more aggressive attacks on Barack Obama’s and John Edward’s reputations as candidates of change.

“I had trouble with that—I thought she was going negative,” said Aurenz. “When she got to the question-and-answer session, I like how she handled that. I felt she was positive. I think she can set herself apart from them with her answers, not by going negative.”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
