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.
If any input of hers were needed, she would have been asked for it.
Kerry can nominate Hillary, but there is no way the Senate would confirm her. I would be willing to stake everything on that bet.
Waving Hello...surprised, aren't you? lol
But it's the right thing to do. And W has the courage to do what is right, while not fearing the "consequences".
Never forget. We cannot be reminded enough these days!
Kerry cannot protect America. He is unwilling to make the hard decisions necessary. Every 9-11 image reminds America of that. *That* is what she is afraid of.
If not mistaken wasn't that supposedly one (of the many) speculated place WJC was going to go if algore were elected?
I am not sure what his dis-barred status will do to that, but you know hillary just may settle for Chief Justice -- now that is right out of "1984" with the reasoning of "Catch 22"
You can surely sleep well at night with Lurch as Prez, pretty boy as Veep, Evita as 1st lady, Hillary as Chief Justice, Bill as UN rep, Teddy boy as ATTY GEN, with Gephardt, Sharpton, Dean and Denny K in high profile Cabinet positions.
Exactly opposite. The GOP Convention should have a shadow of the twin towers as their background behind the stage with the names of all those who were killed there.
Like GW gives 2 spits about anything hillary has to say.
We don't want to offend, now do we Hitlery?
I recall old ugly Hillary exploited 9/11 right after it happened. Remember her ugly mug on camera telling the world how terrified she was because Chelsea was jogging there. What an old bag wind she is. Argh, she bugs me, she is such shameless POS.
I forgot the main point, Chelsea was even near there. Apparently she wasn't aware of lie the beast that spawned her had told and told some paper she was several miles away at a friends house.
Who do we want to offend? The Democrats or the jihadists who broadcast their convention? Screw 'em. The poet in me thinks the 9/11 hymn should be sung at the Convention at every opportunity just to remind the country something changed forever in ALL of our lives. And the best is yet to come. True patriots who love their country are NOT ashamed of honoring the precious memory of the dead and the living. God Bless The Fallen Dead of 9/11 and God Bless America.
"Let there be no mistake: I will never hesitate to use force when it is required. Any attack will be met with a swift and certain response."
Now, I am glad to hear that Kerry will hit someone or something AFTER we are attacked but that is not what the job of the Commander in Chief. I hope many people remind us at the RNC about this fact. Constantly. Constantly. It's the only way Bush can win and Bush winning is the only way we can protect our country longterm.
Hildebeast is just another fat stupid person aka Mike Moore .
Shove a sock in your cake hole hilly.
Someone should thank Hillary for her concern. /sarcasm
If it would backfire on him why in the world is she warning him against it? You'd think she would want him to screw up.
ROFL Unlike the John Kerry fake Vietnam film, of course. Use it Bush.
Phototropic (Kyuss) Under light, that I have never seen Go to the light, reach up to the beam Under light, under light Reach up to the sun or you can run Found the roof, the smallness of it all Found the roof, you will never fall You'll never...
Hillary -- what a flaming, gaping A**HOLE! Just stick to covering up murders, and throwing ashtrays and lamps at your feeble husband.
Was one of Hillary's parents a bunny rabbit? She looked almost like a bunny rabbit at the convention.
"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."
Heck - I thought Kerry was trying to turn back the clock to 1968!
Bush doesn't need to talk about 9/11 too much I don't think. In his movie clip/speech show the Twin Towers and the hustle and bustle of Wall Street. Show the planes just BEFORE they hit the towers and allude to how this changed everything. Bring up that "Yes, terrorists had attacked us before (Twin Towers bombing, 199?, Embassy Bombings, Cole Attack), but those Attacks didn't cause us to change our outlook on terrorism....
Then show a picture of a quiet and dusty and closed Wall Street and a smoke-filled horizon of Manhatten. Then show a clip of Bush standing on the rubble with his bullhorn with the firefighters. And show a clip of him vowing to bring the economy back, which was already on a downturn as he had pointed out in the 2000 campaign. And that's it for the 9/11 symbols, etc. THEN Bush gets to talk about all that he has done since 9/11, but always using 9/11 as the framework.
Then bring up images of the captured and deceased al Queda Leaders, talk about the progress in Afghansistan and Iraq. Talk about the increased success with security in the U.S. Talk about the rebounding economy. Talk about the quick work of the 9/11 commission and praising them for their work. (BTW - didn't Bush hand-pick this group of people? Wasn't this commission supposed to whitewash it all because they were handpicked patsies?)
Talk about what he has already done right after 9/11 that is in line with what the commission recommends; such as creating one person to oversee all intelligence - the Homeland Security Department is a big step in that direction. Breaking down some of the barriers between agencies that have arisen due to legislation. Talk about already restoring 27(?) airbases to rapid response that in the 1990s had been decommissioned.
Hee hee. Does this b!tch ever shut up?
9/11 did happen under Bush's watch, so it is his issue, so put a sock in it Hitlery.
Yep. The Democrats have no ground to gain as far as National Security issues go, they've been lackidaisical as far as National Security goes. If the Democrats told Bush to cease and desist, it defangs Bush in that regard, while the Democrats pretend to care one whit about security from here to November. Bush is CIC, it is his job to remind us and continue the work of the people.
Our job is not begun but we are not meant to desist from it either. There's something like that in "The Sayings Of The Fathers." We are sworn to remember evil by its right name and fight it wherever it is our sworn duty to wipe it out. Its the struggle between good and evil and has been waged since the beginning of time and God is not neutral between them. Hillary like the rest of the Democrats, is a moral relativist. So yes, I do see moral absolutes, black and white in the landscape on which we are fighting. We owe it to the innocent victims of 9/11 to recall their memory every year for a blessing. God Bless America.
There was a choice between "soon" and "not soon enough". I think it's safe to say the Democrats are sitting in the "not soon enough" camp. Kerry and the Democrats would rather opt to sit on his hands and wait to be attacked, rather than go with pre-emption. 9/11 should have taught the Democrats not to take the first option.
ROFL! i like it...hitlery...
