Posted on 06/06/2005 11:58:48 AM PDT by anniegetyourgun
Senator Hillary Clinton castigated President Bush and Washington Republicans today as mad with power and bent on marginalizing Democrats during a speech to 1,000 supporters at her first major re-election fund-raiser, which netted about $250,000.
Mrs. Clinton, who is running for a second term in 2006 and is widely described as a possible Democratic nominee for the presidency in 2008, said that her party is hamstrung because Republicans dissemble and smear without shame and the news media has lost its investigatory zeal for exposing misdeeds.

The Democrats have done a pretty good job doing that themselves.
I was unaware that she'd formally announced.
And NObody knows "BENT" like the former 'first handler' of the not so great 'bent one'
POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK
Why bother? The dems do an incredibly good job of this all by themselves.
Marginalizing Democrats?? I think they do this themselves with their anti-American, socialist platform.
I doubt she did much "handling" after they had their pre-requisite child...or before for that matter.
From the author-ess of politics of personal distruction.. pot kettle...kettle..clintoon.
and yet the MSM will not cover this speech for one second.
This insanity should be put side by side to show hitlary is further left than even dean.
her own words condemn her.
"[Hillary] decried his fiscal policies, particularly Republican-backed tax cuts, saying they were ballooning the deficit and ceding "fiscal sovereignty" to countries like China, which are harder to influence when they become "your banker.""
We need to be listening to this woman's every word, because it is a preview of what we will be facing in 2008.
She's obviously planning to borrow a page from Pat Buchanan. We're going to be hearing about the threat to "border sovereignty" from Mexico and the threat to "fiscal sovereignty" from China.
And, with that populist platform, she's going to be targeting a lot of disenchanted, grass roots conservatives.
The question is whether our party is going to allow Hillary to take our right flank.
Accusations from the left are merely confessions.
WHAT IS IT with these people? They lie like hell, they do every dirty deed imaginable, yes, EVERY, and they try to make us believe they were as pure as the undriven snow? It could be laughable but I ain't laughin'.
No her party is hamstrug because they have lost the House, the Senate and the White House.
And if they're stupid, they'll believe her.
I hope her "speech" was recorded. If it was as shrill as her "I AM SICK AND TIRED..." speech (if you haven't heard it, think: fingernails on the chalkboard) it will be good campaign fodder.
"Senator Hillary Clinton castigated President Bush"
...while her husband sings his praises on Larry King Live last week. Guess this means she won't be joining her husband at Walker's Point at Kennebunkport at the invitation of the Bushes. LOL
