Get The Gloves Out!

November 24, 2007

cross post by Spree

We already know and have discussed the fact that Hillary Clinton isn’t inevitable to win the Democratic nomination and the battle of “electability” has begun in earnest between her and Barack Obama.

Clinton about Obama:

Hillary Clinton’s attack on his qualifications. Making an economic speech in Knoxville, Iowa, earlier that day, the New York senator had touted her own know-how, saying that “there is one job we can’t afford on-the-job training for — that’s the job of our next president.” Her aides confirmed that she was referring to Obama.

Obama about Clinton:

Pressed to respond, Obama offered a zinger feathered with amused disdain: “My understanding was that she wasn’t Treasury secretary in the Clinton administration, so I don’t know exactly what experiences she’s claiming.”

Everybody laughed, including Obama.

The fact of the matter is neither one of them have enough experience to run a country.

Hillary is a panderer that cannot commit to one stance and goes where ever the polls tell her to whether it is a good idea or bad and Barack thinks that living in a foreign country when he was a child gives him some hint about how foreign policy should be handled.

Both are laughable.

Maureen Dowd points out that the only areas where Hillary does have experience in were dismal failures when she was in the White House:

Her Democratic rivals had meekly gone along, accepting her self-portrait as a former co-president who gets to take credit for everything important Bill Clinton did in the ’90s. But she was not elected or appointed to a position that needed Senate confirmation. And the part of the Clinton administration that worked best — the economy, stupid — was run by Robert Rubin. Hillary did not show good judgment in her areas of influence — the legal fiefdom, health care and running oppo-campaigns against Bill’s galpals.

The Clinton campaign in Iowa is in a panic. Obama has been closing the gap with women and her ginning up of gender has lost her male votes. Speaking around Iowa this week, Obama made the point that his exotic upbringing, family in Kenya and years as an outsider allow him to see the world with more understanding, and helped form his judgment about resisting the Iraq war.

IBD points out something else that Hillary’s so called experience would translate into:

Yet government spending is clearly what Hillary’s White House job experience would translate into.

Time indicates that the recent polls showing Obama taking the lead from Clinton are not the only indicators that his “surge” in Iowa is real:

It’s significant then that Obama’s message seems to be catching on among the notoriously pragmatic Iowans. By 55% to 33%, Iowans—who will take part in a Jan. 3 caucus that will be the first test for Democratic presidential candidates—said they favored “new direction and new ideas” over “strength and experience,” a new Washington Post/ABC poll found. In July the ratio was 49% to 39%. After trailing Clinton in the state most of the year, Obama now leads by 4 points, and he has eliminated her advantage among women voters and older voters. He is also dead even with her when voters are asked whom they trust more to handle the economy, Social Security and the war in Iraq.

The fact is Hillary has quite a bit of baggage as well as past scandals, recent fumbles on simple questions and has been caught planting questions in her audiences so she doesn’t have to address anything and give a direct answer that isn’t pre-scripted.

Immigration is also going to play a big part after the Democratic and Republicans parties pick their nominee for the 2008 elections and whether it is Obama or Clinton, both have shown they are very weak on that issue and the GOP will have a solid platform to stand on against them.

Hillary showed her weakness in the Democratic debate where she was for Spitezer’s plan to give illegal aliens a driver’s license, then changed her mind and claimed she didn’t support it (within 3 minutes), then over the following two weeks, flip flopped 4 more times until Spitzer shelved the idea and then she came out against it firmly.

Barack Obama, as shown in the time piece, linked above, is just as weak on illegal immigration by making statements like this:

By the time Obama moves on to immigration (“These are people who are trying to make a living. I understand they broke the law. But let me tell you something: if the minimum wage in Canada was $100 an hour …”)

The Republicans heard Americans loud and clear with the Immigration reform debacle not long ago and have stated that they heard, they understood and they will now work to enforce the laws, secure our borders and deal with those issues before attempting to reform and create new laws.

The Democrats will never understand that message because they depend on illegals fraudulently obtaining voters registrations and voting for them because they are on the side of amnesty. That is the only reason that Democratic politicians fight so hard about having to have an ID to be able to vote.

Hillary encourages the illegal immigrants to sneak into the country and Barack excuses them.

Both of them will suffer for those stances in 2008.

Neither one has the experience in Foreign policy and they are both on th wrong side of the illegal immigrant issue.

They also have both pinned their hopes on Iraq failing and since it is now seeing very public progress, they can try to ignore it as much as they wnt,but the Republicans that backed the surge and the new strategies would be very smart to make sure the public remembered who fougth the hardest for victory and who fought for failure and voted for defeat.

Taxes we can discuss another day, because everyone knows which party would raise their taxes and which party would keep tax cuts in place.

On every issue of importance, neither Hillary nor Barack have the experience to handle our great country.

The Politics of Parsing

My parents use to tell me, “Your sins are sure to find you out.”
I guess Hillary was never taught that.

Any questions?

Waffling, NOT Honesty “IS” The Best Policy?

August 21, 2007

If At First You Don’t Succeed…Waffle

Here is a shining example, again, why Hillary and Obama are assuredly NOT ready for the Big Tent. Oh, they yammer now and then on how they are indeed qualified but, they delude themselves and they cater and pander to the weak-kneed, the emotional and those that have an adversity to actually think for themselves. Thinking for oneself can give one a massive headache if not yet accustomed to original thought. Such is the case with the followers of the Czarina and the young lad Obama.

Aug. 19 (Bloomberg) — Senator Hillary Clinton warned Democrats not to “oversell” plans to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq, setting a cautious tone on the war that was echoed by the party’s two other leading presidential candidates.

Clinton and her main competitors for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Barack Obama and former Senator John Edwards, agreed in a debate this morning that pulling U.S. forces out of Iraq can’t be accomplished in just a few months and that any withdrawal must be balanced by security concerns.

“It is so important that we not oversell this,” Clinton said at the ABC News-sponsored forum in Des Moines, Iowa. Edwards concurred, saying it “would be hard” to move troops out within six months, as suggested by New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, while Obama said U.S. options are limited.

Wasn’t it not all that long ago that Czarina AND Obama were saying to get out and get out now? Why the waffle? Could it be that we are WINNING the war now and this scares them?

Actually, I “Rather” enjoy watching the DNC debates because we catch them in their BDS and double standards and their double talk every time. They never learn that honesty is the best policy.

It will be interesting to “see” what the reactions will be after the presentation by General Petraeus mid-September. With the Good Lord permitting, I will be in DC when this takes place as part of the massive formations of Pro-America Rallies and pro-Troop Support Rallies that will overwhelm the Fruit Loop Brigades that will be there as well. We are planning a live broadcast via Blog Talk Radio if all the bugs are worked out. Should be a hoot to watch the moonats run away…again.

For Hillary The Presidential Aspirant…

August 3, 2007

…she sure has quite a bit of ‘splainin to do.

Wasn’t it not too long ago that she was whining about “the rich exploiting the poor”?  As she is bankrolling millions at the same time?

 

Why is it that only the conservatives recognize this as a double standard?  Or,  so it seems.

But wait!  What do we have here?

One of Hillary Clinton’s most important courtships began early last year, around a formal dinner table at Georgetown’s Four Seasons Hotel. Her targets were Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack and his wife, Christy. Mack was already active politically – but on behalf of Clinton’s political opponents. A Bush “Ranger,” he had raised at least $200,000 for the President’s reelection bid and was one of the most prominent business names on GOP donor lists. At one time his name had circulated as a potential Bush Treasury Secretary.

And here

More and more Wall Streeters – especially those new-money hedge fund and private equity managers with net worths stretching toward and beyond the billion-dollar mark – are throwing their considerable moneyed weight behind Democratic candidates. So far, presidential contenders Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have managed to charm these masters of Manhattan with their policy smarts and scent of potential victory, even while decrying the country’s “highest concentration of wealth…since 1929,” as Clinton puts it.

Things like this never cease to amaze me.  You?

In one hand,  Hillary bemoans and decries the rich all the while being one of them and in the other hand she is “reaching out across party lines”, evidently as bribe money or a hand out.  Take your pick.

After successfully getting Barack’s goat stemming from the exchange at the Yawn Tube debate, Barack imploding by telling the world he was going to invade a sovereign nation that is an ally of the USA and that same country has nukes and a plethora of terrorists in-country.  She must be gloating and Barack must be crying.

She is a shrewd on Mr Finch!

I for one, among the VAST majority of Conservatives in this country,  am pleased that The Rodham is attending the Kos Fruit Loop society and will pandering to the minority of American representatives in the moonbat realm.  This can only further our cause for an “udder” defeat of Czarina.  We feel that Czarina, Queen of Pork, will get the DNC nod.

With her disapproval numbers very close to her approval numbers, swing voters WON’T be going her way.  They will either go with the other team or stay home.  Good.

Like the SoH,  the FIRST female to attain the Vaunted position, Hillary, too,  will make history as being the first female to be nominated by a political party to run for the highest office on the planet.

And lose like Mondale lost to Reagan.

Don’t be nervous folks.  The winds are changing.  The GREAT news coming out of Iraq has the moonbats VERY silent these days and the DNCers are NERVOUS as hell.  VICTORY in Iraq equates to DEFEAT for the DNC for decades to come.

Actually,  that should make then very happy.  After all, they DO own defeatism.

Thanks for sharing.

All The More Reason To Expose Hillary As The Leninist She Is

July 25, 2007

FOR HILLARY CLINTON, the presidency is not in the bag. Even winning the Democratic presidential nomination is considerably less than a sure thing. But of the 18 Democratic and Republican presidential candidates, Clinton is the most likely to be the next president. And she did nothing last night in the bizarre presidential debate in Charleston, South Carolina, to alter that.

Obama Jabs Czarina

July 25, 2007

The New York Sun

Senator Obama is escalating his criticism of Senator Clinton‘s record on the Iraq war, using a Democratic presidential debate last night to belittle her attempt to force the Pentagon to release plans for withdrawing American troops.

“I think it’s terrific that she’s asking for plans from the Pentagon, and I think the Pentagon response was ridiculous,” the Illinois senator said in a response unprompted by a specific question about Mrs. Clinton, before targeting her initial support for the Iraq invasion: “But what I also know is that the time for us to ask how we were going to get out of Iraq was before we went in.”

It seems to me that the Democrats have “forgotten” (for political reasons) THE WHY this nation is at war.

The Time’s Take On The Debacle…er…Debate

July 25, 2007

The Democratic Candidates

 

Barack 

 

Grade: A-

When he was good, he was very, very good. When he wasn’t, he was dangerously close to ordinary. Spoke movingly – even/almost presidentially – about America’s troubled history with race, his favorite teacher and how hard he would fight for universal health care. (Obama even drew an approving nod from Elizabeth Edwards in the audience on that last one). Took occasional soft shots at Clinton on Iraq and her questionable ability to fight for change (his main theme), but never made a decisive impact. He began many more sentences with, “When I am president” (without the conditional) than he has in past debates, but his own video (all the candidates made them, and they were sprinkled throughout the telecast) hit more Kennedy chords than the live Obama did. Still, his best performance to date, positioning him to return in later forums to the change-change-change contrast he wants (and needs) to define his candidacy.

The Rodham
Grade: B+

She had some strong answers, but seemed to be sitting on her lead and didn’t emerge as the clear winner like she has in recent debate outings. Clinton took the incorporation of the YouTube questioners’ names to an extreme – at times she seemed engaged in monologue-as-dialogue with them, as if they were actually on the stage. Still, she topped main rival Obama at a key moment with a decisive analysis of diplomacy and neatly sidestepped questions about how to define “liberal” (as if she had practiced it!), her gender (smilingly turned the question to her bread and butter-experience and leadership), Elizabeth Edwards’ recent challenge to her feminist cred (gracefully turning the other cheek) and the potential Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton dynastic turnoff (with an audience pleasing anti-Bush 43 shot and chaser).

Edwards

Grade: B-

Started out blazing, with passionate answers railing against banks, mortgage companies, insurance companies and special interests of all stripes. But CNN seemed to validate the CW that Edwards has dropped from the first tier by forcing him to go long stretches without talking, leaving the candidate looking aggravated and with nothing to do but tap his fingers in the cutaways. His submitted video took on the infamous $400 haircut with cutting humor — but in a fashion that might have been too slick for some. Fumbled the story of a female American pilot and Iraq vet who was sitting with Elizabeth Edwards in the audience, and inexplicably told Hillary Clinton he didn’t like her jacket in an effort to offer an amusing response to a wacky question which had candidates saying something they liked and disliked about the person to their left. Passionate anecdote from his recent poverty tour showed him at his best near the end, but the slump in the middle (and the odd sartorial insult) cost him big.

 

The rest don’t count.  Just ask Edwards and The Rodham.  And look who “won”.

Cal Worthington Brings Us the CNN YouTube DNC Deadbeats

July 24, 2007

Well, sadly, I watched the entire Democratic Party Contenders For President Debate, hosted by CNN and they had a froggy YouTube thing. I wonder if Cal Worthington had anything to do with this. Debate. “IS” that what it was?

 

I can sum up the entire “debate” (for lack of a better word) in five (5 for those of you in CONgress) words. Bash Bush and Praise Reagan. We all know they HATED Reagan so the insidious referrals to one of America’s Heroes was disingenuous at best.

 

The topics of discussion, rant or “debate” are as follows: Bash Bush, Global (not) Warming, Bash Bush, No Children Left Behind, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Bash Bush, Individual Rights, Bash Bush, Living Wage, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Who’s Your Friend, Who Do You Like, Bash Bush, Who Don’t You Like, Bash Bush, There Is Non One To My Left, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Bash Bush, Run Away From Iraq, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Bash Bush, Fight The Real Terrorists, Bash Bush, Bring The Troops Home, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Bash Bush, Bash Bush, Gun Owners Are Insane, Bash Bush, Bash Tennesseans, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, All Undocumented Illegal Aliens Are Americans So They Get Everything Free While TRUE Americans Have To Pay The Bill, Bash Bush, Trash Talk Radio Because We Are Losers, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, No Nuclear Power, Yes To Nuclear Power, Bash Bush, Grow Our Own Fuel, Bash Bush, Too Dependent On Foreign Oil Because We Stopped ANYONE From Getting Us Free From Foreign Oil, Bash Bush, I Am Not A Liberal But A Modern Progressive (GD Communist), Bash Bush, Yon Who?, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Run Away From Iraq, What Does Victory In Iraq Mean, Bash Bush, Fairness Doctrine Only If You Think As I Do, bash Bush.

 

Did I miss anything?

 

The MOST dishonest would-be Presidential Aspirant this evening was Hillary. Go to CNN, as I will be in the morning, and download the transcript for tonight. Zero in on Hillary’s answers and compare them to the videos in our VODPOD in the sidebar on the main page on this blog. Find the video in regards to “we are in this together”, “I am going to take from those that have and give it to those that don’t”, find out just what in the hell a “modern progressive ‘IS'” and compare it to her rhetoric of this evening and on the videos. Like Club For Growth was saying;

“Pigs were flying in South Carolina tonight during the Democratic presidential debate as Hillary Clinton announced that she is not a big-government liberal but a “modern progressive” that “believes strongly in individual rights and freedoms.”

If she isn’t for Big Brother Rule, she sure has quite a few people hood-winked. She really should pay more attention to her press releases and “remember” that WE ARE WATCHING and we have neat toys like camcorders and video cameras and B-L-O-G-S.

 

Modern Progressive? Is that like an old time communist? Click the link and check out the VERIFIABLE data therein. I thought I had a post on this blog the other day with this data. It vanished. Perhaps it went a little too far. Ho hum. I will place the post on my blog Take Our Country Back. If this link takes you to the main page, scroll around. If not, I have returned to place the exact link here.

 

Hillary is the epitome of communism with a little flare and condescension. Her detractors will deny this and so will she. Everything this Clear and Present Danger does is dishonest and entirely contrary to the United States. She wants to remake America in the vision of her mentors, Carl Oglesby, Saul Alinsky, Duncan Kennedy, Mickey Kantor, Thomas Emerson to name a few.

 

“Hillary was,” as Barbara Olson observed in Hell to Pay, “a budding Leninist.”[4] Ibid., pp. 56, 62.

 

I take from conducting extensive research on The Rodham that a Modern Progressive “IS” an Old Time Leninist.

 

Do we want this in America?

 

Think about it.

“I am hard-pressed to imagine something more absurd than Hillary Clinton defending individual rights and eschewing the big-government label on national television,” said Club for Growth President Pat Toomey. “Kudos to CNN host Anderson Cooper for keeping a straight face.”
