ABC News Blog ^ | December 6, 200y | Eloise Harper

Posted on 12/07/2007 10:49:52 AM PST by keepitreal

Sen. Hillary Clinton, speaking at a ski lodge in New Hampshire, told voters she learned how to ski in the Granite State.

"I would just get to the top and I would just go straight down. I never took a lesson. I thought I was a great skier because I was just rolling down that hill,"

A symbol of her presidential campaign.

Hillary knows all about going down. Just ask Huma Abedin, Saudi agent and her lesbian lover.

Of course Bill was not with her. He, I’m sure was in the lodge with all the ski bunnies in tight sweaters.

BTW, the proper term among skiers for this kind of sight is "YARD SALE!"

The first time I heard that while I lay on the ground I laughed so hard I cried.

Sen. Clinton asked how she learned to ski. “I don’t recall,” replied the Senator.

More importantly than her junk ski ‘story’ there was this little tidbit.... with a very stupid story how she learned the following ... (and btw this woman is a very sick person) ...

“-Clinton spent the day in New Hampsire meeting with voters and also picked up the endorsement of the NEA-NH in Manchester. The 16,000-member-strong union chose Clinton for “working to improve education for 35 years,” as well as her plan to create a universal pre-kindergarden program according to NEA-NH president, Rhonda Wesolowski. —”

AND HERE IS THE REST of the story...... about hillary and education!! Never forget after spending her high priorty to education Arkansas went from 49 to 48 or maybe it was 48 to 49 -— anyway you know what she can do with figures even if it is not money. Yep, this is one sicky family!!!

http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9E0CE3D7143FF932A35757C0A964958260&sec=&spon=&pagewanted=all
snip...”But even with all Mr. Clinton has done in 12 years as Governor, the Arkansas school system, ranked among the worst in the nation when Mr. Clinton first took office, is still near the bottom in most national ratings. And state officials acknowledge that real improvement is years away.”

Yet, the people want this person to lead our children.....

Best part in the blog entry I cited was Hillary touting her NEA endorsement while managing to gratuitously throw in the hostage crisis:

Clinton said that she learned about the endorsement during last week’s hostage crisis.

“I was giving my cell phone to everybody,” Clinton said, “and the cell phone rang about 5:30, 5:45, and I thought, ‘I am getting a report from one of the police captains or one of the public safety comissioners or state troopers.’ I picked up the phone and said, ‘Hello?’”

Clinton explained that Wesolowski had been in a meeting and had missed the day’s news.

“Rhonda said, ‘I’m calling with some very good news,’” Clinton said. “’How would Rhonda get the hostages out?’ I thought to myself.

“By the time we got on the same wavelength “ the senator said, “it was the best news I had so far that day

Open offer to Senator Clinton:

I will accompany you to the top of the mountain of your choice, if you allow me to pick the trail that you will go “straight down.”

Meet you at the lift.... ;-)

Once again this is complete, unadulterated b.s. by the truckload.

Shrillary just makes up the most nonsensical crap whenever she feels like it.

I have worked at ski resorts and I have taught many people to ski. No beginning skier will SUCCESSFULLY “go straight down” ever - if they don’t learn to snowplow and control their descent from the first runs then they crash, always, and if they try to go “rolling down the hill” (on skis, anyway) faster they crash even harder and do what we call a “yard sale” (skis and poles scattered on the mountainside). She is completely full of it. I really can’t stand how she can just ooze such b.s. and the MSM swallows it eagerly, happily, cheerily.....

A mousy nerd like Shrillary takes at least 3x as long to learn to ski as ‘normal’ people anyway, believe me. If she learned to ski at all she had lessons and it took her many days and weeks before she could go “rolling down the hill” with such a carefree attitude, I guarantee it. I have never seen a doltish nerd like Shrillary learn to ski quickly, and I have never seen one learn to ski without many falls, etc.

Shrillary is 110% oozing Clinton-crapola again.

Ha ha. I took one half day ski school and managed to slide on my backside down the hill after making a wrong turn onto a blue slope. I cried while my relatives laughed at me. I’m probably more the norm than ole Hill.

Shrillary claims that, unlike you, she needed no lesson at all to go zooming straight downhill without falling...... then after she enjoyed “rolling down the hill” enough, she decided to learn to turn. NO ONE does it this way, guaranteed, and definitely not a useless nerd like Shrillary.
