"You can put lipstick on a pig. It's still a pig. You can wrap up an old fish in a piece of paper and call it change. It's still going to stink after eight years. We've had enough."It's pretty obvious, because he says "eight years." Yet it's used as an attack.
Here's the question: what about John McCain? Watch the following video. Was he talking about Hillary Clinton? No. But the Democrats could have attacked if they had wanted. Perhaps this needs to be brought up again.
Unlike the GOP, I will be honest. McCain in Iowa on 10/11/2007 was referring to Hillary Clinton's health care plan as putting "lipstick on the pig, but it's still a pig."
