CLINTON, ‘TOO SERIOUS’?
MSNBC ^ | December 19, 2007 | Athena Jones

Posted on 12/19/2007 4:56:06 PM PST by keepitreal

ELKADER, Iowa -- Hillary Clinton spoke today about people’s perceptions of her and about the importance of a candidate’s relationship with the military.

(snip)

Clinton talked about her foreign policy experience and then, in what sounded like a new argument for supporting her candidacy, she emphasized the importance of choosing a nominee who has a good relationship with the military, while making repeated references to how long she’s been around.

(snip)

"I also think it’s important when you look at someone running for president to figure out whether they know how to work well with the military, so that you’re not either persuaded to do something you shouldn’t or you stand in the way of doing what you should, and I have not only served on the Senate Armed Services Committee, but have worked extensively on behalf of issues affecting the military and have a good working relationship with a lot of our commanders both current and retired.

Bwaahh. Good relations with the military? Joke of the century!

Are these the same folks who were not allowed to wear uniforms in the White House and who were not to address her highness unless spoken to first?

A true leader she is!

I hope during a debate a Republican candidate will bring up the stories about her treatment of military personnel during her infestation of the White House.

Someone ought to tell Hillary that experience is measured in accomplishments, not in years. I suppose the reason she keeps claiming she has “35 years of experience” is because she has accomplished exactly—NOTHING. All those years on her chassis makes her a wrinkled old hag...just ask Bill.

Ah, Shrillary - the military hates you every bit as much as you hate them - you know it, we know it - this is just one more example of you lying through your teeth with your great disdain of ‘the little people’, whom you think know nothing

She has called the most successful general in recent times a liar. That speaks well of her great relations with the military, yes?

She's absolutely right. That's why I've never supported a RAT for President.

No. I recalled this photo from some years back, it was previously posted here. I did a google images search and found it.

There is another one that I was looking for, but can't find. It is Hillary at Mess with the soldiers in Iraq. She is sitting next to one man, but there are empty seats near her, combined with the bored looks on the soldiers faces in the room, it leaves the impression that they are not too pleased with her.

I can’t think of anyone, off hand, who is less popular with the military. Remember when she paid the obligatory visit to Iraq, and no one would sit at the same table with her in the lunchroom?

Anyone got that photo?

If Hillary does win in November, I would suspect that we will se a lot of guys, with a lot of brass, ‘retiring’ earlier then they normally would have planned.

Alot of times it's not what the commies say - it's how they say it. Put these remarks thru the Xlinton parsing machine:

"I also think it’s important when you look at someone running for president to figure out whether they know how to work well with the military,

Translation: The military does not realize that the Hillary way is the right way. The definition of "work well" is on her terms so if you're confused about that, that explains why you are an underling.

.... so that you’re not either persuaded to do something you shouldn’t or you stand in the way of doing what you should,

Translation: I will do what I think is in the best interests of socializing every facet of American life, despite the advice of others.

..... and I have not only served on the Senate Armed Services Committee, but have worked extensively on behalf of issues affecting the military

Translation: Notice to fellow travellers: I have been on the inside and know where the weakest links in the chain are. I will get you to our common goal.

.....and have a good working relationship with a lot of our commanders both current and retired.

Translation: There are a few fellow travellers within the military and State Department who can help us. Dont despair; Wesley Clark is just the public face of the retired fellow travellers.

Her message gets across to her socialist supporters like an encrypted file.

OM gosh, may she burn in hell. What audacity. This one...there are simply no words except to say “OUR MILITARY LOATHES YOU, YOUR HUSBAND AND EVERYTHING YOU STAND FOR! Our Armed Forces won’t ever forget what YOU FREAKS did to our military in the 90s! NOT EVER MADAME SENATOR! NOT EVER! SO SHOVE THAT in your BAG OF TRICKS you EVIL SOB!”

You are welcome! I still wish I could find the one where she is seated at a mess table and being virtually ignored.

I think so, though the version I recall was a wider shot that showed empty seats near her as well as the other soldiers ignoring her. That version appears to be a cropped version of the same picture. The whole poster though does tell the story.

Thanks!

Where are the origins of Her wickedness? Do you fault her parents? I do not think She was born evil, but something must have happened along the way. Well, considering the enemies that she has created in her life, karma will come back at her in full swing - lesson learned: do not hurt people in your lifetime, and if you have, acknowledge it and pray to the Lord for forgiveness./Just Asking - seoul62........

BTW, added note:

My son served on board the USS Lincoln when President Bush gave his speech thanking them for accomplishing their mission. He mentioned to me how sociable the entire entourage was, breaking up into small groups to tour the ship. Ari Fleischer in fact came into my son's duty station and they spoke a bit. He said Mr. Fleischer was very likable, knowledgeable, seemed sincere and impressed him as being quite smart. They were in general, well received by the entire crew.

Is she still using that quiet, soft, voice I’ve been hearing the last few days? Amazing how she can adapt and change so quickly. She must be a schizophrenic.
