Posted on 01/13/2006 10:02:44 AM PST by JustAnotherOkie
After Sen. Hillary Clinton went on TV and blamed Bush administration "incompetence" for alleged inadequacies in body armor supplied to U.S. troops fighting in Iraq, Senate Armed Service Committee chairman John Warner agreed to hold hearings.
But when Warner gaveled the proceedings into session on Wednesday, body armor expert Hillary was nowhere to be found.
"Senator Clinton had a long planned day of events with her constituents in New York and wasn't able to attend the short-notice briefing attended by the chairman and two members of the minority," Hillary spokesman Philippe Reines told the Washington Times.
"Her defense aide attended, and she's going to continue to work hard to make sure that our men and women in uniform get the resources they need," he explained.
Mrs. Clinton did, however, make time to attend a Children's Defense Fund luncheon on Thursday - along with Harry "Bush is a terrorist" Belafonte - although she was careful not be photographed with bellicose baritone.
On Tuesday Mrs. Clinton blasted the White House on the body armor issue, telling ABC's "Good Morning America" that it was "unacceptable and unforgivable" that President Bush had failed to protect the troops.
"Of all the issues that he should be focused on, it is providing appropriate protection to our men and women in uniform," the 2008 presidential hopeful complained.
"You know, the president speaks out strongly, and even harshly from time to time, about issues that he thinks are important. Let's hear him speak out about protecting the men and women who wear the uniform of our country."
If Mrs. Clinton had shown up for the body armor hearing she called for, she would have heard one military man after another explain that her complaints were all wet.

once again the beast exposed for the pos that she is.
A real floater, she is.
Animal Mother: "You a politician?"
Senator Clinton: "I'm a United States senator."
AM: "Well, you seen much combat, senator?"
SC: "I've seen a little on TV."
AM: "You're a real comedian."
SC: "Well, they call me `Thunder-thighs'."
AM: "Well, I got a joke for you. I'm gonna tear you a new ******* at the committee hearing".
AM: "You talk the talk. Do you walk the walk?"
SC: "But think of the children . . .".
Yeah, "events with her constituents" like her usual lesbian S & M sessions.
All talk, no action. Just like Bubba.

It's more important to Hitlery to go to an event that could lead to fund raising than to attend to her Senate obligations for which she was elected.
Put her in a 130 degree sauna with one of our best suits on. Then, after that, have her walk a mile "in their shoes". Then, see if she can still pick up her sad a** off the ground.
Hillary still thinks a bazooka is a little pieces of bubblegum.
Harry Bellafonte was more important than our service men and the body armour? Broohahahahahahhaaha!!!!!!!! nice move hillary
"We musn't speak of Lord Hildemort in such tongues!"
Perhaps, the best title for the picture is:
Body armor and practical application by the military men. My thoughts exactly. Safety gear is great. It works. But when the soldier, sailor, airman get in some of the tight places he has to go, the square safety gear doesn't fit the round hole. Today my hearing is shot, my own fault, for not wearing the micky mouse ear muffs. Some day, everything will be perfect in the field. I intend to be with God however.
I got it, make her a new pantsuit out of some type of nylon, tell her it is the latest in nanotech body armor, then send her somewhere so she can show her courage, then....
Let's see........military matters or Harry Belafonte????????
This "study" the NY Slimes published sounds like those idiot weathermen who tell us, if we don't wear a hat when it's freezing out, we lose 90% of our body heat through our head. Yes, of all the people wearing body armor who were hit where there was none, the armor coverage was inadequate. That's like saying if it weren't for the goalie, our hockey team would have lost 35-2.
Constituents, my derriere.
Which contributor was she sucking up to? Inquiring minds want to know...
