Unfair

CREDIT:

According to MSNBC, 70 percent of voters (including 68 percent of white voters) thought Hillary Clinton was unfairly attacking Barack Obama. 56 percent of voters thought Barack Obama was unfairly attacking Hillary Clinton. 50 percent thought both were being unfair. Those results reflect about what I’d say . . . there was unfairness on both sides, but also a definite asymmetry — most of it is coming from the Clinton camp.

The Clinton surrogate, Kiki McLean, on air now is saying “I think campaigns are tough” by way of response. That’s true, but also non-responsive in what I think is a telling way.
