Skip to comments.Video: Hillary: When I’m ‘President Again’
Posted on 11/08/2007 8:29:18 AM PST by rwa265
Slip of the tongue? Yesterday on CNNs The Situation Room Hillary Clinton spoke about what she would do about licensing illegal immigrants when she is president again. Watch:

it all depends on what the definition of again is, again and where she placed the comma in that sentence.
LOL Prolly not a slip. She’s been campaigning about her experience, but then also had said that the health care project was Bill’s plan. So then the other candidates said, well she has no real experience.
This is her effort to change the perception, assuming that if she repeats it, we believe it, rwa265. LOL
She might have said this same thing earlier in the program, and was just using "again" meaning "I said this before."
Well, if she was president before then she’s already served 2 terms and can’t run again.
hmmm...not exactly, but close.
The real slip is that she is revealing her notes to herself — “got to keep trying to fix that immigration gaffe.” Again, again, again...
Yeah, she can’t run again. She’s already served two terms.
This needs to be made into a GOP ad and run in every major market! The arrogance of that fat cow is astounding.
She is a crafty person, however...
I Listened to the video/audio and read the transcript below. I read it some what like you do. She mentions that it was a federal issue, became a state issue and will be a federal issue again when she is president.
She is a crafty person, however, I agree

Sorry - won't wash.
This wasn't taken out of context - we can hear for ourselves the conversation leading up to her slip of the mind...
I realize she is not the only presidential candidate who says "when I am President," but the words sound especially presumptive when they come out of her mouth.
Not a slip of the tongue. Even the mainstream media have commented that Hillary and her people assume she will be president if their use of tense is any indicator. I believe it was on 60 Minutes that her Latina chief of staff said she will take a year off after Hillary’s inauguration. And Hillary has said she does not now what she will encounter in foreign policy matters so she can’t say what she intends to do about Iran. In a side note, my daughter attended a Wellesley College visit at her high school, where the young representative said she will take a leave of absence during Hillary’s first year in the White House. Here’s hoping the American people correct their thinking.
If the bwitch accomplishes the improbable and wins the Presidency expect Bill to have plenty of “we’re the President” moments. ...although he very well could use “I” instead of “we.”
Um, Missie, you can only listen to it if you’re a member, which I’m not, and most others aren’t either.
Thank me for playing, now where’s my lovely parting gift?
More like FDR. (Or Eleanor Roosevelt).
I'm suggesting that there's not enough context to prove that she was referring to "President again", rather than "I said this before".
I posted the transcript, Sarge. They are available to all on Rush’s website each evening. Audio clips do require a subscription.
Just a “slip of the tongue” from the slippery snake herself!
The Clinton Spin is now that the licenses-for-illegals issue is complicated and can’t be addressed in a thirty-second sound bite. So call a presser and address it you mad cow!
Almost two weeks afer the debate and she still can’t give an answer!
The Clinton’s get away with everything, while Republicans are busy cremating their own into dust to throw in Hillary’s eyes, and when she recovers after a bit, she will simply sweep the rest away.
Issuing drivers licenses is a state issue not a federal issue.
Hillary Clinton as potus would quickly become known as the “Pandora Presidency”.
We all know what evil is in the box, just takes a few stupid ones to open it.
“Issuing drivers licenses is a state issue not a federal issue.”
With Hillary everything is a federal issue. Here is her exact quote:
“I think the fact that governors are being forced into this position is really unfortunate. They should not be making immigration policy. The federal government should be making immigration policy and thats what Im going to try to do as president again and I do not believe that in the context of federal immigration reform that that would be an issue that governors would have to contend with.”
May it never be.
When IS she going to release her 180?
Oh, wait a minute, that John Kerry - never mind.
Does that mean we’ll get a shot at impeaching a Clinton AGAIN?
In case you missed this!
Contrary to HRC, governors don't have to contend with the issue, certainly not the way Spitzer has, which is as a ploy to get illegal immigrants registered to vote via the disastrous Motor Voter law!
The federal government should act, and one initiative would be to repeal Motor Voter now! Of course, if you expected HRC and Spitzer to endorse that, I've got a bridge to sell you.
HRC Freudian slip alert ping!
She’ll get a pass from the MSM.
I sometimes wonder why we bother.
My take: Her overriding philosophy is to consolidate power towards the goal of change (change to her liking will do just fine). Power held by the states is a real nuisance to her, so with her hands back again on the reins of federal power (but not on Bill’s baton this time), she will valiantly spare the states the pesky problem of determining who may or may not pass through the borders. In fact, she’ll dictate that the states may not interfere with her directives. And we can be sure she will issue thousands of extralegal directives that torture common sense but can’t be easily challenged in court.
'that' what she is going to do is her claim that that this is a Federal issue; not 'State' and she is going to make it one.
There is small irony is here as well, that as a Senator she cannot make the call or even weigh in with opinion; but as President; she will make the decision for all States.
Hillary's threat is less ironic. . .Federal Power and her desire to usurp States Rights. Hillary will settle for nothing less, than the whole meal deal.
Thanks for the ping!
Got it. Thanks. FRAUDian slip is more like it.
It just reinforces my opinion that Bill never was President, their marriage was arranged and it has always been about her.
Note: this topic was posted 11/8/2007.Thanks rwa265. An unusual off-topic ping to most of the lists, sorry for the intrusion.
“I sometimes wonder why we bother.”
