Skip to comments.Clinton to Muslims: Pay No Attention to GOP Campaign Talk
Posted on 02/25/2012 3:01:15 PM PST by Lazlo in PA
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience of Arab students in Tunisia on Saturday to not pay any attention to the rhetoric and comments made by the Republican candidates vying for President Barack Obamas job, saying their rhetoric does not reflect U.S. policy.
According to CNN, Clintons remarks came in response to a question from a Tunisian student in the audience who asked about the pro-Israel stance of nearly every American politician Democrat or Republican when they run for office.
You will learn as your democracy develops that a lot of things are said in political campaigns that should not bear a lot of attention, Clinton said. There are comments made that certainly dont reflect the United States, dont reflect our foreign policy, dont reflect who we are as a people. If you go to the United States you see mosques everywhere, you see Muslim Americans everywhere. Thats the fact. So I would not pay attention to the rhetoric.
I would say watch what President Obama says and does. Hes our president. He represents all of the United States, Clinton added, saying she was surprised people in Tunisia and other countries pay more attention to what is said in our political campaigns than most Americans.

Each day I go to AlJazero for two reasons.
First it does offer an alterior news presentation by a group completely foreign to me. (Same as democrat and the MSM do).
Second I figure homeland security closely watches all who go there and I’m trying to make every damn one of their lists.
White, Christian, former military, gun owner, male, home owner, married 32 years, private business owner for 25 years, you know all the usual anti American rhetoric here.
As bad as Obama is, I am glad that “HILLARY UNCENSORED” had a role in keeping her out of the Oval Office. She is a despicable human being.
Well, nothing a few million cargo hold ‘losses’ over the great oceans can’t fix over time.
Methinks she has been dipping into her muslim love pool for a little too long.
Let us hope the old bag is trying to get Obumma voted out of office. The truth is, the old hag will say anything, ANYTHING if she thinks it will helper get the top job at World Bank.
What did she say when Iran offered it latest “compromise”. This is the one we’ve been waiting for. How has that worked out Hillary? She has proved she is just as clueless as the rest of Obama’s Intelligence Department and State Department morons.
Yet another on a long list reasons to despise that repulsive bitch.
pay no attention to the Marxist behind the teleprompter...
Good thinking. I wonder where Huma is these days?
Wouldn’t be the first time a woman used her ways to sway a person of importance to her loyalties.
When she was in Arkansas during Bubba’s early days as a politico she was not at all liked, as she presented herself as some hip feminist with lefty ideas (which, of course she was and is), which did not sit well with the average Arkie. And she literally dressed the part. The sentiment of the citizens of Arkansas was (and I'm trying to cite this from memory): “Maybe she'd be more acceptable if she shaved her underarms and used deodorant.”
Obama and his Representative, Madame Secretary DO NOT represent all of us in the USA. I stand with Israel. Furthermore, I do not and will not honor a religion that honors Honor Killing.
...saying their rhetoric does not reflect U.S. policy... "You will learn as your democracy develops that a lot of things are said in political campaigns that should not bear a lot of attention... There are comments made that certainly don't reflect the United States, don't reflect our foreign policy, don't reflect who we are as a people. If you go to the United States you see mosques everywhere, you see Muslim Americans everywhere. Thatâs the fact. So I would not pay attention to the rhetoric. I would say watch what President Obama says and does. He's our president. He represents all of the United States" ...she was surprised people in Tunisia and other countries "pay more attention to what is said in our political campaigns than most Americans."
World Bank? Mebbe.
More likely POTUS.
Oh yeah, even after all this time. Bank on it.
