Mark Penn has "resigned" from his role in the Campaign, he has NOT been fired.....


So Susposedly Penn has "Resigned" from Hillary's Campaign. Okay we need to be realistic about this , he has been Demoted, BUT he has been with the Clintons for over 12 years.....He is Not Going AWAY.....the fact that the Clintons CHOOSE him to represent and consult and make decisions, and anchor her campaign....IS A PROBLEM. He was NOT fired as Huffpost has said, according to NYT, Wapo, and LA Times he was demoted and will still STILL be very much involved with her Campaign, just in the Background.He should be fired after holding Diplomatic Meetings with Columbian Officials ( I still would like Someone to explain to me how it is LEGAL for Someone that is Organizing a Presidential Candidate's Campaign to have SUCH A MEETING?)

This Person has a Company that is known for it's Union Busting Prowess, and has helped Create Such Division within the Democratic Party....and YET Hillary has not really distanced herself from him or his antics or remarks....( remember in December his Defaming Drug Comments). Is he the Architect of the Divisive Rovian Campaign ? The Bigger Question is , so this is Hillary's Level of Judgement ? This is the Type of Immoral Character, Her OWN Brownie that she would choose to orchestrate her Campaign ? Her "Messege" ? Her "Leadership" has been crafted by Penn.....But the Ultimate Responsibility for this Rovian Slime Monster is hers....She has had Many Pinnochio Moments....but was Penn really her Geppetto ?

Hillary has really turned me off with her lying and underhandedness. It is one thing after the next with her and though she cries about Obama getting a buy, I never hear her being held accountable.
Anyway in this case I am sure Penn is no more out of the picture than the master of dirt "Rove" is. They are both continuing to pull strings from the back. The Clinton's made 15.9 million or what ever it was. I'm sure they can hide plenty!
It just stinks but you know, lying is the new truth and she is another master. We're the only honest fools!

Mark J. Penn is a man who wears many hats: high-paid political and corporate pollster, chief executive of an international communications and lobbying company, and chief strategist to New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Well, there are more. Penn's firm, Burson-Marsteller Worldwide -- with 2,000 employees and $300 million a year in revenue -- owns BKSH & Associates, the major lobbying firm chaired by Charles R. Black Jr. That's right, Black, counselor to Republican presidents, reports to Clinton's top strategist.

Penn can always go work for the McCain Campaign. Charlie Black might need some help squaring those Diebold machines for November. United Technologies bought Diebold and Charlie Black lobbies for United technologies and Charlie Black works for Penn's firm...

And just what was Penn doing promoting Columbian free trade? First thing this AM, there was Bush also promoting it. Uh-oh, I thought the idea was to smear McC with being an extension of Bush, not Hillary.

Columbia is having increasing border "problems" with Venezuela & Ecuador ... exactly what problems, our press doesn't tell us ... I only know that everytime we stick our snouts down there in latin america it is either to prop up corrupt regimes or ignite coups against progressive/socialist regimes ... sorry, Bush threatening congress to fast track this bill in 90-days rings like another excuse to export terrorism to me.

Mark Penn is dirty, just like Bush, because his idea of free trade is to outsource every american job except military-related. I don't see how Hillary escapes the bad press that should come out of this.

I'm surprised anyone believed that story in the first place, as it was supposed to fool the voters in Pennsylvania.

One of the things that bothers me about Mark Penn is that he looks like a walking heart attack. I have rarely seen a more unhealthy specimen. At least not one that was not bedridden!

He just strikes me as somebody who is never satisfied. He undoubtedly fills his plate multiple times at dinner, and I also believe that he is always trying to make more money, get more power, and more influence over Hillary.

I am not giving her a pass as I think they are probably two peas in a pod, but Penn is a cancerous personality who clearly infects every campaign he touches with this underhanded negative approach to winning.

Which, may I just point out, is not working.

In addition, he was probably picking up some cocaine for Bush.

Asshole.
