Clinton Booed at Heartland Forum
December 01, 2007 6:04 PM
ABC News' Eloise Harper reports: A day after dealing with a hostage crisis, Sen. Hillary Clinton faced a tough crowd in Iowa. Clinton did not receive the warmest of welcomes at the Heartland Form in Des Moines, IA, and although the hostage scare was mentioned, the announcer brushed it off quickly in order to get to questions. Clinton, who was forced to call in to speak to the crowd of thousands because of weather difficulties, took questions on topics from healthcare to illegal immigration.
The senator was asked if she would "make a decision to give undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship" during her first 100 days in office. Clinton responded saying, "I have been favoring a plan to citizenship for years. I voted for it in the Senate, I have spoke out about it around Iowa and the country and in my campaign. And as president comprehensive immigration reform will be a high priority for me."
Soft booing could be heard from the audience. The man repeated his question about the first 100 days. Clinton replied, "Well you've to get congress to pass the legislation and the president to do as much as possible, which I will do." Louder boos came from the crowd.
Clinton was thanked for her appearance and the moderator expressed sympathies for the ordeal she suffered yesterday. Clinton thanked the moderator. More booing could be heard from the crowd again after she hung up the line.
Barring any travel troubles, Clinton is still planning on attending the Brown and Black Presidential Forum in Des Moines Saturday night.

What did Hillary have to do to deal with the hostage crisis? Funny...but I thought it was the police hostage negotiators and SWAT teams that dealt with the hostage crisis in NH.
Even Iowa knows it was the “Clinton Hostage Hoax.”
gutless dems. they wouldn’t boo her if she were there in person. and they’ll dutifully march in lockstep to the polls and vote for her next November...just like the lemmings/zombies they are.
I hope those were republican plants...turn about is fair play.
She is correct on that point. Does the liberal moron crowd thinks the president enacts laws all alone?
They probably do. I'm reminded of the on line petition I received a few years back, demanding that G.W.B. lower gas prices.
Yah, but ABC will just make them look like boors.
Quite unlike their reporting of the treatment conservatives get from the moonbat left.
If only you had signed it!//sarc off
I heard this early am (Sat) the airports were closed down.
How did she get there? Just wondering?
She put it out on CNN that she may not be able to attend due to airport close downs.
Hmmm She made it hmmmm.
” Clinton, who was forced to call in to speak to the crowd of thousands because of weather difficulties”
Most likely, they were illegal aliens.
If anyone is watching this liberal-loverfest, you'll verify what I'm going to say - it is completely unprofessional, with mike failures, and all kinds of goofy crap.
They have this section where a candidate asks questions of another candidate. To show how schizo Kookcinich is, he asked HIMSELF a question about national single-payer healthcare.
“She is correct on that point. Does the liberal moron crowd thinks the president enacts laws all alone?”
The liberal moron crowd should all be moved to Venezuela. Then they can have a President that enacts laws all alone (Hugo Chavez). And they can live in a socialist paradise.
Doesn’t matter who it was. Hillary will have her mafia connections take care of things, and remove the “boos” from existence; as if they never happened.
Sounds like there is heart left in the Heartland.
Maybe this witch will melt away in the Spring rains of 2008.
What, are you a Clinton hater? She single handedly stormed the office in riot gear and saved the day!
Do I need the sarcasm thingee?
In Iowa? HA
Met with advisers to see how they could milk this for all they can for her on the positive side. Like, SHE was a victim of the hostage issue also.
Why shouldn't they? Some people on this forum think the same thing.
It is a bit discouraging on occasion.
FoxNews reported that the crowd that booed her was far left. They want the troops home now, illegals legalized now, etc. All the usual far lefty demands.
I was glad too when I heard she got booed until the reporter mentioned the politics of the crowd.
The illegal alien issue is the new “third rail”.
Even Obama found the right airport this time.
“Even Iowa, nearly a thousand miles from our border with Mexico, has felt the impact. Estimates of the illegal immigrant population in Iowa place it between 55,000 and 85,000.”
- Rudy Giuliani
Its good news that she is loosing the support of her base.
Hillary phoned it in...no kidding, and now in semi private Dhimmicrat only meetings she is endorsing Amnesty again now that the Pravda stage lights can’t produce the requisite sound byte for a TV ad...
No (sarc) thingy necessary!
Let’s just say I do have a VRWC membership card.
Oh yeah, if Hillary was to have stormed that hostage crisis in NH, I’ll bet she would have done it like Janet Reno in Waco.
Probably not, illegal immigration is not wanted by the little people in both parties. Here in Hazleton Pennsylvania, the Republican Mayor won with 90% of the vote because of his tough stance on the issue. Not only that, he won the democratic primary as a write-in candidate. This is a home-run issue if someone can get traction with it.
This is exactly why the MSM is trying to spin the Huckster into the Republican nominee. They understand that if the most pro-amnesty and open borders Republican goes against Hillary or Obama, the issue will be nullified, cancelled out.
I remember arguing with Ross Perot supporters about this point.
Senators from both parties can get away with supporting amnesty without paying the ultimate political price. House members cannot, even Democrat House members know that. The focus on amnesty by the MSM has recently been with Jorge and the Senate, but the story was that Pelosi said she wanted at least 40 Republicans supporting it if it passed the Senate. She may not be too bright but she understood that it would not pass if Republicans did not come over, because there were a lot of Democrats who would be unwilling to commit political suicide by voting for amnesty in a vote that was split along party lines. The polls say there are a lot of Democrats who oppose amnesty, Clinton evidently believes that Presidential candidates will not pay a political price which may be true in the race for the Democrat nomination. But what about the general election, maybe she is banking on Julie Annie who will not make the opposition of amnesty an issue. For this primary voter, amnesty is the only issue that I am looking at. Any Republican who is genuinely and enthusiastically opposing amnesty and for securing the borders is conservative enough for me on the other issues.
I was unable to attend the rally in person too. I’m a little late, but here goes...
Hey, she was working harder than she ever has calling a bunch of people.
Nope” The writer wasn’t very clear - but I get the distinct impressions that the crowd waned FASTER action on getting illegals made citizens: that they (AND the speaker/questioner) wanted 100 day IMMEDIATE (FDR-style) citizenship.
These are liberal democrats after all - not Americans.
So she escaped this face to face due to bad weather. Next, she’ll have the flu.
That’s what I understood it to be - so there must be illegal aliens there.
No big deal, the boos will just be edited out, like MTV and VH1 did at the WTC benefit concert.
Nobody will ever know. It’ll be like it never happened!
best bob hope line ever.
My sister and brother-in-law have a RV and travel throughout the country and they say they’re every where now.
Oh, they're here, all right. They're "doing the jobs Americans won't do."
Wherever there's a slaughterhousehogs, turkeys, cattle, etc.you better know you'll find them. Illegals will do those jobs a helluva lot cheaper than Americans will.
Perhaps all the folks in Iowa have heard about Hillary and one of her biggest felonies (with the exception of Chinagate).
“I have been favoring a plan to citizenship for years. I voted for it in the Senate....
guess this plays real well in fly over America???
If ya think she got a rather poor reception in the heartland ya oughtto see the kind of mooning she’d get around me.
