Lest we forget, her husband is a good ol boy from Arkansas. ABC News’ Jake Tapper covered Hillary Clinton’s anti-hope commentary, in response to a question from Fox News’ Major Garrett.

Said Clinton, “Dr King’s dream began to be realized when President Lyndon Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, when he was able to get through Congress something that President Kennedy was hopeful to do, the president before had not even tried, but it took a president to get it done.”

She continued; “That dream became a reality, the power of that dream became real in people’s lives, because we had a president who said ‘we’re going to do it,’ and actually got it done.”

So…Obama is MLK, a good talker who never accomplished anything, and thank heaven for Clinton-slash-LBJ?

Am I reading that right?

And is this really a smart message to make just a few days before the South Carolina primary?

Amen, JPT. Hillary’s tone-deaf response further illuminates my point that angry Baby Boomers have not yet figured out they can’t shout down Generation X. Barack Obama isn’t asking Hillary for the keys to the car. He’s asking Americans to elect him as our next President of the United States.

We know the difference.
