Behold, just two…for now.
On a Thursday afternoon in early May, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton rose before a nearly empty Senate chamber and proposed that Congress undo one of the most significant acts in its recent history: the authorization of the Iraq war. In remarks lasting just two minutes, she spoke bluntly: The “authorization to use force has run its course, and it is time to reverse the failed policies of President Bush and to end this war as soon as possible.” She added, “If the president will not bring himself to accept reality, it is time for Congress to bring reality to him.”
This was Clinton’s latest and boldest attempt to distance herself from her own vote for the Iraq war in October 2002 — a vote she has described as “probably the hardest decision I have ever had to make.” At the time she cast that vote, she was among the Senate’s most outspoken Democrats warning of Saddam Hussein’s dangerous arsenal. Unlike nearly all of her fellow Democrats, she even went so far as to argue that Saddam Hussein gave assistance to Al Qaeda members. Now she speaks with equal fervor about the need to bring the war to an end. In addition to calling for the deauthorization of the war, she has also voiced support for cutting off financing to many combat troops in Iraq by March 2008.
Hillary and the rest of the clowns in politics should really keep better track of their lies and deceitful tactics. In the world of the internet, and being in the public’s eye as they are, they should heed the advise of Mr Clemens…keep your mouth shut and let people think you are ignorant, rather than opening it and removing all doubt.
This would-be president, Hillary, voted FOR the war because GWB was RIGHT. She voted to CONFIRM General Petraeus AND his “new strategy”. The “new strategy” is in place and has started to work and NOW she wants to withdraw.
This woman is a moron, plain and simple.
