"We expect him to extricate our country from this before he leaves office" in January 2009, the former first lady said.
"I am going to level with you, the president has said this is going to be left to his successor," Clinton said. "I think it is the height of irresponsibility and I really resent it."
First she says that President Bush must pull the troops out before he leaves office in 2009. Real nice, calling on President Bush to retreat in order to deflect accuasations of retreat from those moderates you are trying to triangulate on for your bid. And if President Bush fails to pull the troops back, there is that next quote. So listen up all you evil meglomaniacs around the world hiding in caves, according to St. Hillary the US will never wage a war longer than eight years. So hang in there until 2009, for you shall win because St. Hillary knows she will be President and will pull any troops that were deployed by President Bush home.
Then there is her non-answer about dealing with evil men. She tried to blow it off as a joke. Where have I heard that before? Oh yes, that other sterling Senator John F. Kerry. I guess her spin team cornered her about it because next meeting she tried to add some steel to her reputation along with the delusion that its all George Bush's fault the world hates the United States.
"I believe that a lot in my background and a lot in my public life shows the character and toughness that is required to be president," Clinton said. "It also shows that I want to get back to bringing the world around to support us again."
Character? Calling women who accused her husband of having affairs with him trailer trash is not a sign of character. Doing a Tammy Wynette to protect her husband from these accusations all in the name of retaining the Presidency. Hiding the Rose Law firm books from Kenn Starr. Nor is secret meetings in back rooms amidst the heady haze of power formulating a plot to nationalize US health care a sign of character. As for making the world like us again, get real and read your Machiavelli - "It is better to be feared than liked." Does Hillary remember Khobar Towers or the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzinia? Those three Islamic fundamentalist terror attacks occured during her husband's eight years as President. Or Beirut in 1983 under President Reagan. Parts of the world not liking the US predate by a large margin the presidency of George Bush.
Bill Richardson is looking better and better for the Democrats when compared to St. Hillary the Welterweight.
