Something smells in here, and I’m going to have to address it.
Ian Rivera of the Hillary Clinton campaign, we’ve been constantly hearing and reading your comments about Hillary Clinton and you throwing your support behind her. Now for anyone that knows you today, we all know you as a solid hardcore Hillary Clinton supporter.
Surely someone who has come out so strongly against him, in favor of Clinton wouldn’t support the man.
Now, this is in a group on Facebook called “St. Johns Students For Barack Obama”
Only two days later you go on to say:
“Hey…it happens…poeple want to deny the ability of a young, ambitious black male who has a vision for the future of this country because of his “lack of experience.” If only they could look past that and actually listen to his ideas – he is the only Democratic Senator that has actually forwarded a plan for leaving Iraq”
Mr. Rivera, you have attacked Obama for his plan on pulling troops out of Iraq, saying it’s too soon. Why is it then that last year you were so strongly supporting Senator Barack Obama when he was the only Democratic Senator in leaving Iraq?
It seems that this isn’t the only time that you have supported Senator Barack Obama.
In the May 2 issue of AM New York you are quoted as saying:
“”Yes, Obama is really resonating with the youth,” said Ian Rivera, 19, and a sophomore at St. John’s University. “I think they’ve fallen in love with the ideas he talks about”
you go on to talk about “…the real kind of change that youth want to see.” all in the same article.
Now Ian, how do you expect anyone to take you serious when we don’t know who you really support. You say you support Hillary, yet you publicly support Barack Obama almost a year ago. Where do you stand sir?
You talk about Clinton being able to reach the Hispanic voters. You said she did this in Texas, and Arizona and New Mexico.
However, on a blog titled “Informed Students: Blog the Vote”. A blog which was talking about Hispanic voters being as valuable to the democratic party as black voters.
On March 5th, 2007 on that blog you said:
“I disagree. As a whole, The black population votes overwhelmingly Democrat, while the Hispansics – many which are conservative Catholics- vote Republican. I feel that it is too early anyway, but in essence i disagree with this thought”
Now you are completely disenfranchising the Hispanic vote. Ian Rivera… where do you stand?
On the February 2, 2008 edition of the CNN newsroom you were quoted as saying
“I have strong feelings about, you know, my responsibility in terms of taking a direct effect in this election and the way the country’s going.”
Isn’t that something Barack Obama would say?
Do Hispanic voters matter or not?
Do you support Obama or Hillary?
Do you quote Obama often?
