Hillary: Please Send Money
National Review ^ | January 11, 2005 | Byron York

Posted on 01/12/2005 9:25:52 AM PST by presidio9

Amid speculation that she might forgo a run for re-election to the Senate in 2006 in favor of a presidential run in 2008, New York Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has sent an early fundraising appeal that, while directed toward reelection, reads like a trial run for a White House bid.

"As the Republicans' number one target in 2006, I have to begin now building resources for the tough fight I face in my re-election campaign," Clinton writes in a letter to supporters. She says her task is made more difficult by "the Republican attack machine out to distract me from my work in the Senate with politically-motivated attacks that have no basis in fact."

"They are trying to demonize me with negative attacks," Mrs. Clinton continues. "You have to fight back, and you can't sit back and let baseless attacks go unanswered."

The fundraising appeal stresses national issues, focusing almost exclusively on the economy and health care. Writing of "the negative impact the right-wing Bush agenda is having on America," Mrs. Clinton says, "As I travel around New York and the nation, I meet families who have lost health insurance and don't know what will happen if they face a medical emergency." She describes families who cannot afford a college education for their children or who can't pay for prescription drugs.

"Personal stories like these are a powerful reminder of how much has been lost since the days when President Clinton led our nation," Mrs. Clinton writes.

She also pledges to fight against Republican plans to reform Social Security. Her only substantive mention of national security is a pledge to work, as a member of the Senate Armed Forces Committee, "to support our troops, and to call for national security policies that will truly keep America safe."

"Personal stories like these are a powerful reminder of how much has been lost since the days when President Clinton led our nation," Mrs. Clinton writes.

Translation: "Personal stories like these are a powerful reminder of how many people will simply have to have their hard earned money confiscated for the common good, like in communist countries."

You know, the more I learn and read about Hillary, it almost ( almost, then I come to ) makes me feel sorry for Bill, which makes me dislike her all the more.

"You have to fight back, and you can't sit back and let baseless attacks go unanswered."
Grammatical correction:

"You have to fight back; you can't sit back and let baseless attacks go unanswered."

Year, think of all that we've lost: A national sense of shame... A recession... Disrespect for the Oval Office... Terrorists walking around with no fear of the US... About 10 percentage points in marginal tax rates...

Yea, I'm talking to all you stupid peons.

You don't really think that I'm going to use any of my stolen money do you? Iam you queen, so just shut up and do what I want you to do.

Oh why do I have to be among the peons and stupid people? When I become their god, I'll take all of their money for myself.

I might send her a dollar. I figure the expenses tracking it plus sending me more requests for money would cost the campaign far more than that dollar.

Except that every "personal story" at the last few Dem Conventions has turned out to be fake.

Politicians don't write fund-raising letters, PR experts do. Hillary may have signed off on this one, or she may not even have bothered to look at it. After all, she's too important to deal with small details. Just send her the money.

First off, nobody is talking about you...yet.
Second, You do a great job of demonizing yourself every time you open your mouth.
Finally, Be sure you give LONG speeches. Your voice grates on people.

Since you bring it up, a semicolon is the same thing as a comma plus a conjunction. ; = , and ... .

A semicolon is the same thing? I think not. Look again:
"You have to fight back, and you can't sit back and let baseless attacks go unanswered."
The bwitch is wording this as if "have to fight back" and "can't let attacks go unanswered" are two different things, as in:

You have to do two things:
1. Fight back.
2. Not let attacks go unanswered.

But that is not what the bwitch means. What the bwitch is trying to say, is more like this:

"You have to fight back, which means not letting the attacks go unanswered."

or better stated:

"You have to fight back; you can't sit back and let baseless attacks go unanswered."

The sentence following the semicolon is not a second thing that must be done, it is a further elucidation on the meaning of the phrase "fight back".

Grammatically, there is a big difference between a semicolon and a comma-and construction.

The stupid bwitch can't know that.

You should.
