Clinton Tells Ky. Dems Bush Mismanaged War [Barfer]
AP ^ | 12/02/05 | BRUCE SCHREINER

Posted on 12/02/2005 9:35:25 PM PST by ncountylee

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton accused President Bush of mismanaging the Iraq war and claimed his domestic agenda has taken the country off course in a speech Friday night to Democrats in a state that solidly backed the Republican president last year.

About 2,000 people cheered the New York senator as she accused Bush of ignoring an ailing health care system and rewarding tax cuts to the wealthy while piling up deficits.

Clinton headlined a party fundraiser that brought in $600,000 for Kentucky candidates as Democrats try to reverse gains by Republicans, who hold the governor's mansion and all but one of the state's congressional seats.

Clinton, who is running for re-election next year and is considered a possible presidential candidate in 2008, targeted the president's handling of the war for some of her sharpest criticism.

"The time has come for the administration to stop serving up platitudes and present a plan for finishing this war with success and honor," she said. "I reject a rigid timetable that the terrorists can exploit, and I reject an open timetable that has no ending attached to it.

Hasn't this cocaine snorting traitor dropped dead yet? I'm told he looks bad after the heart operation, so I'm hoping.

Hillary is hearing from the left, loud and clear.

She's moving left right we all know her heart is. Things are not going to be easy for the assumed Queen of America. I see this leftward move as good news.

She is disgusting. Completely disgusting.

Amazing how she wants it both ways, and thinks nobody will listen closely enough to see it.

This shows the contempt that liberals have in general, and she has in particular for the electorate. They think they aren't smart enough to look at two sentences end to end.

LOL...In other words, "I don't reject a flexible timetable that terrorists cannot exploit, and I don't reject a closed timetable that has am ending attached to it.

Say what?..If anyone can decipher this for me, it would be appreciated.

Since this money will be spent on candidates statewide, the GOP can now credibly picture every Dem candidate with Hillary on campaign materials. This will be worth far more than the money they raised tonight.

The Hillary quest for absolute power continues. The lefty wackos have been giving her hell all week, and I guess the final straw was Tim "Doofus" Robbins the other day saying she could kiss his arse on Air America. It must drive the Beast nuts having to keep her wacko supporters while at the same time acting "middle of the road" so as to fool Republicans. Yes Hillary I am fooled, like I was fooled when Michael Jackson married Lisa Marie.

Other than to sell and/or give away almost all of our secrets to the ChiComs, make certain that his pal was the ONLY one able to sell smokeless coal, staining the rug in the Oval office and the sunk just outside of it, allow al Qaeda to flourish and ignore ALL of its terrorist plots, send our military to support the wrong side in the Balkans, destroy bridges and pollute the Danube, and make off with all kinds of stuff that belongs in the White Hose............nothing much. Oh, yes, he DID get THE biggest and most unconstitutional tax hike in the nation's history and the ONLY retroactive one.

John Kerry explained it yesterday

"I'm not asking even for the specific timetable of withdrawal. I'm asking for a specific timetable of transfer of authority, of transfer of responsibility, of the shift and the setting of the benchmarks specifically that allow us to bring our troops home."

Is that better?

I understand. Many have those old-time demos in their families. They are not politically aware but know that they have voted democrat since dirt was young and that's what they do. There is a new generation of young Republicans coming up who will be more active than even we are.

It is consistent, though, with Clintonism.

I first formed my opinion of Bill at the Richmond debate in '92 -- when he promised three different members of the audience three different, but mutually exclusive, things. A balanced budget, more spending programs and a middle-class tax cut.

The audience lapped it up, the media praised him...while Perot and GHWB completely ignored the disconnect.

Bill got away with it. But I don't know whether she can...

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton accused President Bush of mismanaging the Iraq war ......................

I agree 100%. I am sure I disagree with Mrs. Scumbag on the right way, but she is 100% correct that it is being mismanaged.

accused Bush of ignoring an ailing health care system ....................

Mrs. Scumbag is a Marxist who would destroy our health care system. Sh tried it once, and she will succeed her second time when she is elected president in 08.

and rewarding tax cuts to the wealthy ...................... that is factually a lie since the wealthy are paying an even greater share of the tax burden.

You know things are bad in GOP land when you have to agree with a Maxist liar, a scummy opportunist who happens to be right about Bush's war tactics.

Are you kidding, we are going to be too busy getting rid of the rat's bodies on Monday when they realize that Bush's approval rating is up, the economy is is up, the Dow is going to hit $11k next week, and unemployment is lower than it has been in 30 years. They are all going to be slitting their wrist.
