An Obvious Plant In A Hillary Clinton Campaign Stop

The Hillary Clinton campaign has planted a shill in the audience for Hillary to "respond" to. No doubt Hillary was rehearsed on how to adress this plant.

Clinton Confronted With 'Pandering' Sign at Rally

ABC News' Eloise Harper reports: Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., held a small outdoor rally in Gastonia, N.C., and was greeted with a sign that read “A Gas Tax Holiday is Blatant Pandering.” Instead of ignoring the sign, Clinton read it out to the audience and defended her position.

“Now, I see that sign over there. A guy's got a sign that’s saying ‘A Gas Tax Holiday is Blatant Pandering.’ Now, I’ll tell you what. I’d rather have the oil companies pay the gas taxes than you pay the gas taxes this summer. I'll tell you something else. When the Federal Reserve and the Federal Treasury bailed out Bear Sterns to the tune of $30 billion, I didn’t hear about it being pandering.”

Then, Clinton took her opponent on indirectly, referencing her latest attack ad that points out Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., saying that the gas tax would save “just pennies.” Clinton has been saying that American families, according to her research, would save up to $70, and she's pointed out how important this is to families across America.

The senator got a bit more heated when she continued to address the idea that her plan was just pandering. “How about recognizing that, for many people, they count those pennies every single week. Now, it’s easy if you don’t have to worry how much gas costs. It’s not as simple. If you go to the grocery store and buy whatever you want, you don’t have to worry about what’s going in the cash register. But that’s not the way most Americans are living.”
