Hillary to Troops: Support for War Fading

Moderator note: I know it's going to be tough, but, please watch the calls for violence against this creature.

In a demoralizing message to U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq, visiting New York Sen. Hillary Clinton told them that Americans back home are growing increasingly skeptical of President Bush's decision to send them into battle.

Describing two meetings with G.I.s over turkey dinners in Baghdad, Sen. Clinton told reporters later that soldiers wanted to know "how the people at home feel about what we are doing."

Clinton said she told the troops, "Americans are wholeheartedly proud of what you are doing but there are many questions at home about the (Bush) administration's policies."

She also suggested that the U.S. could eventually loose the war in Iraq, contending, "We have to exert all of our efforts militarily, but the outcome is not assured."

Despite her sour pronouncements, the former first lady insisted that the soldiers were just as glad to see her as they were President Bush, whose surprise visit less than 24-hours earlier was greeted with standing ovations.

"It's a positive for the commander-in-chief to visit troops in the field," Clinton told reporters, adding, "the troops [also] seemed to appreciate seeing myself."

Speaking from a secure location just over the Kuwaiti border, Mrs. Clinton launched one verbal salvo after another at the White House, arguing that Bush officials had been "obsessed" with getting Saddam Hussein and saying the perception blinded them to the difficulties of deposing his regime.

"The Pentagon tried to make do with as few troops as possible, as light a footprint as they could get away with," Clinton said. "Now, we're playing catchup . . . Unfortunately, I don't think they fully appreciated the conditions we would encounter."

The top Democrat also reprised her charge that the White House is being less than candid when it comes to apprising the American people of the costs of the war.

"The obstacles and problems here are much greater than the administration usually admits to," she said, adding, "Everybody has to be honest."

US senator visitng troops in a war zone to tell them the US is no longer behind them. This is called "treason." Of course, the Marxist Press gives her another pass. What an evil bitch this woman is.

Soldiers wanted to know when the wide-load was going to press her fat cakes back on her broomstick and fly away! They also wanted to know if her overly-larded ankles would have a negative aeronautical effect on her broom flight.

"the troops [also] seemed to appreciate seeing myself."

Seeing myself? As opposed to seeing me?

Good grief, what awful grammar, although perhaps she really meant to say, "The troops seemed to appreciate seeing my own bad, skanky, greasy-haired, pinko commie, military-hating larda**ed self."

Clearly this evil (expletive deleted) is trying to have it both ways- "visiting the troops", but then telling them that their efforts are wasted.

I really think she should run for President this time- let's get it over with. She would be the biggest fundraiser the Republican Party ever had, and when she has lost in a landslide, the Clinton's will be out of the Nation's hair for good.

RUN, HILLARY, RUN!

At least Fonda was a reasonably attractive traitor. What a warm fuzzy bright spot it must have been in their day--when she left, and they only had to worry about hunting rebels and terrorists.

If I was a soldier over there, I wouldn't have spoken to this (w)itch if my CO ordered me to!

Well ok, I might have faked a Tourette's seizure and started screaming vulgar words at her. I'm sure she's heard and used most of 'em.

What is wrong with that woman? What a horrible message to say to our soldiers' faces. She should be censored for spewing such treasonous venom to our forces on foreign soil. She has no shame and clearly will use every opportunity to advance her own sick agenda, even as in this instance she demoralizes our sons and daughters into whose presence she interjects herself.

She does not need to go over there with her lack of military history and tell those guys what needs to be done.

It's heartrending to me to see these guys greeting her with such civility too. What great guys and gals we have in our military.

When Bill Clinton visited the troops throughout his eight years, I believe they had to unload their weapons. I would imagine that this policy (if not already in place) will be SOP whenever Hillary visits in the future.

I agree with the others who say this is treason. And its rude. "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything."

When Bush visits the troops to say how great they are, that's "political grandstanding". When Hillary visits the troops and speaks out against the current administration's polciies, that's just "visiting with the troops".

but there are many questions at home about the (Bush) administration's policies."

Saying this to the troops on Thanksgiving reserves her a special PLACE in HELL.

This "woman" is the lowest of the low! She is truly a menace to this nation and all decent people. All the sycophantic lamestream media freaks who have protected and promoted her over the years belong in the same place! That goes for that money-grubbing Murray Rothstein/Sumner Redstone with Viacom whose company removed the boos from the 9/11 Concert for the witch! Despicable. What she continues to do is pathetic.

What's a good website for sending messages to the soldiers? I'd like to send along my personal good wishes, thanks and encouragement... and make it clear that most Americans do not agree with gloomy assessments of the war effort.

Wow. Just wow.

I can't imagine a politician stupid enough to say these things. Or an advisor clueless enough to let her. Wrong and damaging in so many way, including to her personal aspirations. A huge blow to any presidential dreams she's been harboring, this stuff WILL surface in campaign ads if she ever runs.

Crazy stupid.

Yep. The witch has anger management issues. I think it started with her parents, especially her father. I think I read that as a young girl her parents gave her a toaster and a radio for bath toys.

Run Hillary Run!!!!
myself | 11/18/2003 | international american


Posted on 11/18/2003 5:40 PM PST by international american


I stand in total pleasure at the idea of Hillary Clinton running for President. Let me tell you why: by the numbers:

1)She is without a doubt, the most despised women in America...not just men...women hate her too!! 2)She has political baggage unprcidented in the annals of American history. 3)She is a known con women who shredded documents when she was under fire. Also this holds true for her quintessential bulldyke friends whom SHE got hired...Janet the "torch Reno, and Donna "BULLDYKE" Shalala. 4)She and her husband(ersatz husband) are well known for being inveterate liars. 5) Bill Clinton, in spite of his histrionics, bit lip(only whemn he is cought in a bare-faced lie) is a well known, well unrepected male slut in the eyes of most females. Hey, he married the wretch now his bed is made. 6) Hillary has a history of being a Marxist-Leninist Pinky....all the way back to high school.We conservatives will leave no stone unturned to uncover, and highlight her political transgressions.

Bottom line...she is TOAST!! Please comment. Love Y'all IA"


I thought this was appros pos we all know what #7 is now...enemy of the troops
Best, IA

%$#@^*&%$%^#@!! One day the Clintons are going to have to explain their worth to someone who cant be bribed, bought out, smeared, assaulted, intimidated by having a favorite pet killed, or whacked. I just hope Im around see it; A horrified Hillary screaming "Do you know who I am as Saint Peter closes the gates in her face..
