Posted on 07/31/2004 12:05:21 AM PDT by ambrose
July 31, 2004 -- BOSTON Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton warned President Bush against evoking too many 9/11 images in his re-election campaign and the GOP convention in New York or Americans would reject him as an "exploiter." Clinton said that while Bush, as commander in chief, is entitled to bring up and talk about the 9/11 terror attacks, relying on it too heavily will invite criticism and ultimately backfire.
"It has to be done in a careful way or people will think he's exploiting it," said Clinton in an interview with The Post at the end of the Democratic convention.
"He is the president, so he has a right to bring it up, but if he's not careful, people will think he's exploiting it" for partisan advantage, said Clinton.

So is the witch giving genuine advice, concerned that the issue could backfire on Bush and thus hurt her chances?
Or is she now in the tank for Kerry, having been promised a Supreme Court appointment?
Did she charge Bush for this campaign advice?
Well, whoop tee doo! Shove it ho!
Hillary is afraid that if we summon the mystic chords of memory and make Our Union aware of that day's terrors and the need to confront evil thusly and unafraid, it will spell doom for her party; so be it. For in commemorating 9/11 we put principle over politics, patriotism over provincialism, and recall honor, duty, country and all who sacrificed for Our Dear Land. We shall solemnly resolve all who died on that day never be forgotten and be dear to the bosoms and hearts of their countrymen forevermore. God Bless America.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH exploiting 9-11.
POTUS is a war president.... he needs to run on this fact.
Scary Kerry and the UN are NOT an alternative.
Promised a Supreme Court appointment? THat is one of the worst things I could've imagined.
Ahhh, so Kerry can use Fake trumped up home movie alleged re-enactments of Vietnam, but Our Commander In Chief, President george W. Bush can't use facts....
Ahhhh.. Go away clinton, both of you...
Anyone stupid enough to take advice from the other side is too stupid to win.
I think it is safe to say: do the opposite of whatever this evil witch says.
Why does she always have to yell?
Oh really, you don't think she was just giving heartfelt advice, concerned that the issue could hurt Bush's electoral chances?
LOL. Kerry is trying to wind back the clock to 9/10. If Bush lets him get away with it, he will lose. We can't count on the Sheeple to remember on their own.
Don't listen to the witch, Mr. President!
Agreed: GWB should do exactly the opposite of whatever this crackpot tells him to do.
Clinton said that while Bush, as commander in chief, is entitled to bring up and talk about the 9/11 terror attacks
Actually, it was pretty nice of her to give her permission. Now the convention can go on.
Yeah, exactly right.
She must realize it's Bush's asset.
She also said "If you have to hide a body quickly, Fort Marcy Park."
For Honor, Country And Flag
We have seen the face of evil and will heed the call
In the midst of sorrow and adversity to stand up tall
To comfort widows and aid orphans and pledge anew
Forever we will to our missing and loved ones be true
And never forget the day when in horror we looked on
Helpless when the enemy struck and they were gone
In the blink of an eye and our eyes were filled with tears.
We have seen the face of evil and now amidst the tears
There are trials of fire that will come with passing years
Though enemies do test our strength and purpose of will
Despite all suffering and adversity this great nation still
With a quiet anger stirred will rise up and courage bold
We will evil crush and this world with freedom do enfold
And have honor, country, and flag respected everywhere.
