Clinton at times forgets major caveats
"I want to freeze interest rates for five years."
Yes, but it's complicated.
"On issue after issue that really were hard to explain or understand, you voted present . . . And anytime anyone raises that, there's always some kind of explanation."
Her words are somewhat misleading
The Bush administration has "the Pentagon trying to take away the signing bonuses when a soldier gets wounded and ends up in the hospital, something that I'm working with a Republican senator to try to make sure never can happen again."
He fought to improve it, then voted for it
"You said you would vote against the Patriot Act, then you came to the Senate, you voted for it."
Her comparison is too selective
"Average families are spending roughly $2,000 more a year on energy costs. ... It's like a $2,000 energy tax in just the last seven years, more than three times what the typical American family received from the Bush tax cuts."
Can't blame Bush
"Thanks to President Bush's policies....The income gap is now higher than at any time since the Great Depression."
15-million is okay guess, but not a fact
Barack Obama's health care plan "would leave 15-million Americans out."
Obama's plan would leave out some, but nobody knows how many
Barack Obama's health care plan "would leave 15 million Americans out."
A lot of time, but the math is off
"Americans spend 100-million hours a year filling out these forms (FAFSA). That is the equivalent of 55,500 full-time jobs."
Why withhold when you can delay?
"My husband has not withheld a single document."
Cherry-picking Obama's quotes
Sen. Obama "made the very argument he is now criticizing back in November 2006."
Standing up, but not alone
"Hillary stood up for universal health care when almost no one else would, and kept standing till 6-million kids had coverage."
Her health care plan will cost $110-billion in the first year, which can be paid for with savings.
