Sen. Clinton Urges Democrats to Speak Up
http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/02/08/D8FL4DNO6.html ^ | 2/8/06 | DEVLIN BARRETT

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday accused Republicans of "playing the fear card" of terrorism to win elections and said Democrats cannot keep quiet if they want to win in November.

The New York Democrat, facing re-election this year and considered a potential White House candidate in 2008, said Republicans won the past two elections on the issue of national security and "they're doing it to us again."

She said a speech by presidential adviser Karl Rove two weeks ago showed the GOP election message is: "All we've got is fear and we're going to keep playing the fear card."

In that speech, Rove suggested Republicans can prevail in 2006 by showing Democrats had undermined terrorism-fighting efforts by questioning Bush's authority to allow wiretapping without getting court approval first.

Clinton said a convention of United Auto Workers that Democrats should not be afraid to question Bush's handling of the war.

"I take a back seat to nobody when it comes to fighting terrorism and standing up for national homeland security," she said.

Referring to fugitive al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, Clinton said, "You cannot explain to me why we have not captured or killed the tallest man in Afghanistan."

She added, "Since when has it been part of American patriotism to keep our mouths shut?"

White House spokesman Ken Lisaius responded: "It sounds like from reports that the political season is certainly starting early for some."

President Bush, he said, wants to address rising health costs, energy costs and the war in Iraq in a bipartisan way "and keep the political bomb-throwing to a minimum."

Clinton also said the Bush administration was allowing U.S. manufacturing to wither away and that the only way for workers to protect those jobs was by electing Democrats.

She was cheered by the auto workers, a few of whom shouted, "Hillary for president."

The bulk of her 30-minute speech focused on economic issues and the troubled U.S. auto industry, which is losing market share to foreign manufacturers and bracing for tens of thousands of layoffs.

Clinton said the administration has not done enough to keep America globally competitive. She urged a new long-term effort by the government and private oil companies to fund research and development, particularly in energy-saving technologies.

Speaking to an enthusiastic Democratic crowd that increasingly sees jobs moving overseas, Clinton said Thailand should not be granted access to the U.S. auto market.

The U.S. is in negotiations with Thailand on a trade pact that might eliminate or reduce a 25 percent tariff on trucks made there.

Our problem is the dem have been speaking up and dividing this country.

I am reminded about American tourists visiting foreign countries. They believe if they speak slowly and loudly enough, the people there will understand.

Sadly the dem's feel there message is not getting out so they speak louder and louder and divide more and more because they only speak of what they think we are doing wrong and have no interest in offering a solution or better direction to try.

en. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., tells the audience to think smart as she delivers the closing address to a convention of United Auto Workers, telling them the Bush administration is allowing U.S. manufacturing to wither away, and warning workers the way to protect their jobs is to elect more Democrats, at the Marriott Wardman Park Marriott Hotel in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2006.

Maybe because if you would have told Billy to handle it on 3 seperate occasions then we would have him in jail now, and quite possibly have saved many American lives on 9/11. I was wondering when the beast would break out and start to "implode", and is a little earlier than I expected. Maybe she is diverting headlines from the assanign politization of the funeral of a great American, where the Dems looked like total partisan idiots as usual.

I'm sure she told the UAW all about the flaws in the Ford's and GM's product lines, and that CAFE standards should be raised.

CAFE is the reason that Ford and GM are building a lot of cars nobody wants to buy, and that have little profit in them when they are sold.

To heck with the cheap car market. Let the Asians fight it out while racing to the bottom of the barrel.

That's right PIAPS and don't forget to tell them to pay no mind to the millions of Islamopignazis currently rioting, burning and vowing death to the west just as you were addressing your audience. There all Karl Rove plants to put the fear of terroism front and center. After the Republicans win the election the ROP is going to go back to building thier vibrant econonies and bringing innovation and discovery to the West.

Repeat after me now there is no such thing as terrorism, it's just a rightwing conspiracy to have your jobs shipped overseas.

The funniest thing is that there is no need for Republicans to play any "fear card." The libs already scare the voters to death! As we saw in previous elections, the majority of the electorate can tell that the libs are not to be trusted with national security. That scares every thinking person away from voting for them. The libs shoot themselves in the foot!

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday accused Republicans of "playing the fear card" of terrorism to win elections and said Democrats cannot keep quiet if they want to win in November.

KIND OF MAKES YOU WONDER WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO SAY - THEY LOVE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, THEY LOVE GUN CONTROL, THEY HATE WIRE TAPPING...

BETTER TELL CINDY SHEEHAN TO GO SILENT.

The New York Democrat, facing re-election this year and considered a potential White House candidate in 2008, said Republicans won the past two elections on the issue of national security and "they're doing it to us again."

GEE I THOUGHT REPUBLICANS WON DUE TO NOT COUNTING DEMOCRAT VOTES AND TERRORIZING MINORITIES INTO NOT VOTING...

She said a speech by presidential adviser Karl Rove two weeks ago showed the GOP election message is: "All we've got is fear and we're going to keep playing the fear card."

YOU'RE SIDE BROUGHT UP THE WAR AT THE KING FUNERAL, NOT OURS.

Clinton said a convention of United Auto Workers that Democrats should not be afraid to question Bush's handling of the war.

WHAT THE WAR HAS TO DO WITH AUTO WORKERS SHE HAS YET TO EXPLAIN. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS WOMAN WANTS "THE BIG MONEY" OUT OF POLITICS?

"I take a back seat to nobody when it comes to fighting terrorism and standing up for national homeland security," she said.

SHE TAKES A BACK SEAT TO NO ONE CAUSE DEMS ARE ALL WALKING.

Referring to fugitive al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, Clinton said, "You cannot explain to me why we have not captured or killed the tallest man in Afghanistan."

...OF COURSE, IF HER HUSBAND HAD TAKEN OSAMA FROM THE SUDAN BACK IN 1998 WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THIS AT ALL...

She added, "Since when has it been part of American patriotism to keep our mouths shut?"

SINCE THE AMERICAN LEFT DECIDED THEY DIDN'T WANT TO BE THREATENED BY PEACEFUL MUSLIMS OVERSEAS.

White House spokesman Ken Lisaius responded: "It sounds like from reports that the political season is certainly starting early for some."

(OF COURSE HILLARY NEVER LEAVES THE CAMPAIGN SEASON.)

President Bush, he said, wants to address rising health costs, energy costs and the war in Iraq in a bipartisan way "and keep the political bomb-throwing to a minimum."

OF COURSE BUSH IS DREAMING - THIS IS THE AMERICAN LEFT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

Clinton also said the Bush administration was allowing U.S. manufacturing to wither away and that the only way for workers to protect those jobs was by electing Democrats.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS COMING NORTH AND TAKING MANUFACTURING JOBS HASN'T HELPED EITHER, BUT SINCE ILLEGALS VOTE LEFT WING WE WON'T TALK ABOUT THAT.

She was cheered by the auto workers, a few of whom shouted, "Hillary for president."

UNFORTUNATELY SHE DIDN'T GET APPLAUSE FROM THE GUYS IN THE BACK, CAUSE THEY COULDN'T READ THE CUE CARD.

The bulk of her 30-minute speech focused on economic issues and the troubled U.S. auto industry, which is losing market share to foreign manufacturers and bracing for tens of thousands of layoffs.

I'M SURE SHE OMITTED THE PART ABOUT RAISING TAXES TO FIX THE PROBLEM.

Clinton said the administration has not done enough to keep America globally competitive. She urged a new long-term effort by the government and private oil companies to fund research and development, particularly in energy-saving technologies.

SHE SHOULD TELL THIS TO HER ENVIRONMENTALIST BACKERS.

Speaking to an enthusiastic Democratic crowd that increasingly sees jobs moving overseas, Clinton said Thailand should not be granted access to the U.S. auto market.

INSTEAD WE SHOULD BRING ILLEGAL THAI IMMIGRANTS OVER HERE TO WORK IN FACTORIES.

The U.S. is in negotiations with Thailand on a trade pact that might eliminate or reduce a 25 percent tariff on trucks made there.

AND ALL KNOW WHAT HILLARY THINKS OF TAX CUTS FOR ANYONE...

Corporate Average Fuel Economy forces a target fleet MPG rating, taking into account all the vehicles the company sells.

Therefore, the dealers' lots are overflowing with uninspiring four door poo boxes and minivans that ignite passion in no one. These vehicles must be heavily discounted and often sold at a loss to satisfy CAFE standards.

Look at the Chevy Cavalier/Celebrity, Ford Focus etc. Drive one of those and then hop in a new Mustang GT and you'll figure out right quickly the strengths and weaknesses of the American auto industry.
