Rep. Jim McGovern, who has endorsed Hillary Clinton, attempts a critique of Barack Obama over the Huffington Post. See here: McGovern at HuffPo

This piece, which is exclusively about Obama's appearance on Meet the Press, includes lots of quotes from Tim Russert.... and zero quotes from Barack Obama.

To be sure, he quotes Russert selectively quoting Obama, from over three years ago, and then proceeds to paraphrases Obama from Sunday, but never quotes what Obama actually said.

He also implies Obama has not always been against the war (which is a reason, apparently, to support Clinton) and then suggest Obama lack maturity.

As take-downs go, this is truly lame.
