My name is Peter Boykin I am one of the founders of Clintons4McCain.com and I also came up with the slogan for justsaynodeal.com I want you to know we are not owned by the RNC nor is the site registered with them. I am right now a Democrat but I elect my leaders by the person not the party, neither side looks out for all the views I like totally but I identify with the Democratic party that Hillary came from. I do not like the NEW DNC nor do I like the OLD RDN.
I am not independent but I think that when it comes to our leader it is best to find someone who you know will protect America, I know McCain can do this and I will vote for him, I might not like him as the 1st choice but I WILL NOT vote for Obama (and it is not a race thing it is his charactor and unpatriotism I question)If anyone would like to talk to me feel free to email.
BTW the RNC does own the clintons FOR mccain site since May but that is not us we have the clintons 4 mccain but we are still hoping for Hillary to get her chance to run so we are half in for the McCain cause until we know for sure Hillary will not have a chance this year. Then we will be full in.
Attn: Peter Boykin
I'm sorry, but the claims you make here are simply not credible. There is every reason to assume that Cristi Adkins and you (along with others) are engaged in a covert RNC propaganda project. There is no convincing reason to assume that either of you are Democrats or Independents. There is no compelling evidence that you are or ever were supporters of Hillary Clinton. You make these claims but nothing supports them and all else contradicts them.
Some of what I'll address in the following has been noted or alluded to by earlier posters.
1) On May 15, the domain name "clintonsformccain.com" was registered to the Republican National Committee (as noted earlier, easily verified at register.com, whois lookup).
2) Sarah Lai Stirland, a reporter at Wired, got wind of this registration and sent two inquiries to the RNC. Those inquiries were not answered. (At this point, I don't know whether she picked up this information from another reporter and whether anyone else had earlier made similar inquiries). She wrote up the story and it went online June 5… http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/2008/06/republican-nati.html
3) On June 4 a second registration was entered, this time with the slight modification of the digit 4 replacing 'for' and now with the registrant's name hidden.
4) These coincidences, considered in tandem with the unusual and semantically awkward construction of "clintons for/4 mccain" suggests the high probability that the registrants are the same party or are functioning cooperatively.
5) The content of all of Cristi Adkins' statements in her Fox interviews (of course it is Fox) or the content of what can be found on 'clintons4mccain' or 'justsaynodeal' or any of the related sites is manifestly a compendium of RNC and anti-Obama talking points. The sites, particularly the myspace pages you have put up, are marked by images and comments which portray Obama in a deeply racist and bigoted manner. They are as ugly as anything one might find anywhere on the internet. They are, in a word, typical rightwing smears. You even follow this pattern in your post above..."when it comes to our leader it is best to find someone who you know will protect America". Obama can't/won't protect America but McCain can/will. There's no RNC talking point more predictable than that one.
6) In high contrast, there is NOTHING to be found in Cristi's comments or on your sites which suggests ANY affinity for Democratic/liberal/Clinton policies or values. There is nothing to suggest agreement with a SINGLE Clinton platform position. There is, to be clear here, absolutely nothing at all to suggest you agree with Clinton on anything at all...how very odd indeed for such passionate supporters of Hillary.
7) Likewise, your sites and interviews while ceaselessly and predictably taking every opportunity to derogate the DNC, the Democrats and Obama somehow manage to avoid any substantive criticism of the RNC, Republicans, conservative political ideas or McCain. Again, rather an odd outcome, if you really are Democrats or Hillary supporters or even independents.
8) Indeed, as Hillary's platform stands 180 degrees the converse of fundamental McCain platform positions (on healthcare, on a woman's right to choose, on Supreme Court nominees, on the constitutionality of "unitary executive theory", on Iraq, on immigration, on education, on the economy, on issue after issue not least on WHO her supporters now ought to cast their support over to) it becomes logically and politically incoherent that you and Adkins would suddenly turn to McCain for political deliverance. The far more compelling and rational solution to this incoherence is that you are lying through your teeth precisely as we could predict were you functioning in alignment with Limbaugh's "chaos operation" or fronting a covert RNC operation.
9) You have two myspaces up, profoundly similar in rhetoric, content and design, one of which has the URL noted on the page as clintons4mccain and the second as, golly goodness, clintonsformccain... here http://www.myspace.com/clintons4mccain
and here http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=386894652
10) You will insist, as you and Cristi have done elsewhere, that your support for Hillary arises out of respect for her character and her experience, thus conveniently forwarding two more absolutely predictable RNC/conservative talking points - McCain is a man of character and experience but Obama is neither. How convenient.
Over the last number of election cycles, RNC marketing/propaganda has pivoted on notions and claims regarding “character”. Democratic party candidates always lack “character” while Republican candidates are in all cases awash in this “character” stuff. Why? For the same reason that Chevy markets its trucks (inferior products compared to, say, Toyota) with a meaningless term such as “tough”… our trucks are tough but Toyota’s trucks are wimpy. Then ya just pray no one checks Consumer Reports.
11) And there’s a final absolutely non-credible aspect to your operations and your claims. The rhetoric, common to all your related operations, regarding the sexist savaging of Hillary by the DNC and by the Obama camp is shown to be hollow pretense given John McCain’s (that gentleman of character?!) statements and behavior:
- he laughs when asked “How do we beat the bitch [Hillary]?” Boy, that’s a yuk for all Hillary supporters.
- he refers to his wife (in front of five witnesses) as a “c*nt” and “trollop”. Straight talk?
- he cracks the deeply respectful to Hillary and all women joke, “Do you know why Chelsea is so ugly? Janet Reno is her dad.”
Not much of a ruse, is it?
