Obama to Clinton Supporters: “Get over it”
OTooBusy tells Clinton female backers that he’s got more important things on his plate (like power with a side of arugula) than to reach out and heal wounds.
“Get over it,” he says.
This From ABC News:
…According to Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., Obama then said, “However, I need to make a decision in the next few months as to how I manage that since I’m running against John McCain, which takes a lot of time. If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women, John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it.”
Rep. Diane Watson, D-Calif., a longtime Clinton supporter, did not like those last three words — “Get over it.” She found them dismissive, off-putting.
“Don’t use that terminology,” Watson told Obama.
