Foundering Hillary takes a shot at Obama; he doesn’t care about Americans after all?

clinton-abc-newsAs her dismal poll showings keep dropping, Hillary Clinton is lashing out at even her fellow Democrats.

During an interview with David Muir on ABC News Wednesday, the still-Democratic front-runner took a shot at her former boss, President Barack Obama, implying that he doesn’t go to bat for people who need help.

“I’m going to fight for all the people like my mother who needs somebody in their corner,” she said. “And they need a leader who cares about them again.”

By adding the word “again,” she implies that the present administration doesn’t care about the people she used to call “everyday Americans” (until her political consultants thought it didn’t sound like she cared enough).

Clinton’s attempt to distance herself from the president may have been prompted by his faltering favorability ratings. However, Clinton’s own ratings are taking an even bigger hit.

A Quinnipiac poll released Thursday shows her most formidable competitor, Sen. Bernie Sanders, an Independent from Vermont, as just edging past Clinton 41-40 percent. A poll taken last week indicates that he’s well ahead of her — by 9 percent — in New Hampshire.
