Skip to comments.HILLARY WANTS DAVID SHUSTER FIRED (or end up like Vince Foster)
Posted on 02/09/2008 1:10:43 PM PST by LdSentinal
LEWISTON, Me. Hillary Clinton isnt pulling her punches today, and shes ripped.
Clinton doesnt think a temporary suspension fits the crime by MSNBCs David Shuster, who commented this week that the Clinton campaign had pimped out 27-year old Chelsea Clinton by having her try to recruit Democratic Party super delegates to support her mother.
Sen. Clintons letter to Steve Capus, president of NBC News, pretty much says it all:
Dear Mr. Capus,
Thank you for your call yesterday. I wanted to send you this note to convey the depth of my feeling about David Shusters comments.
I know that I am a public figure and that my daughter is playing a public role in my campaign. I am accustomed to criticism, certainly from MSNBC. I know that it goes with the territory.
However, I became Chelseas mother long before I ran for any office and I will always be a mom first and a public official second.
Nothing justifies the kind of debasing language that David Shuster used and no temporary suspension or half-hearted apology is sufficient.
I would urge you to look at the pattern of behavior on your network that seems to repeatedly lead to this sort of degrading language.
Theres a lot at stake for our country in this election. Surely, you can do your jobs as journalists and commentators and still keep the discourse civil and appropriate.
Hillary Rodham Clinton
go to hell witch Hillary
Get a sense of humor Fat Ass!
Fake outrage and planted stories. New Clinton campaign, same old Clinton Inc.
She will get her way, watch.
The truth hurts!
There’s nothing like using the power of your position to remove those who dare be critical of you.
WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! We KNOW who these people are! They can never, under any circumstances, be allowed back in the White House!
Imagine if a Republican, or even President Bush, had taken this attitude towards a media member? Oh, the histrionics about the ‘chill’ over free speech.
Compare this to everything that’s been said about the Bush family the last 10 years, much of which was far worse.
The every day usage of the word ‘pimp’ has made it lose it’s negative meaning, and I would expect 27 year old reporter may not understand that. Youth an immaturity is obvious to us oldsters.
Clintoon is overreacting, but anything to destrat from the real issue: what a disaster her prsedancy would be.
This is a leftist criticizing another leftist. There is little room for compassion or forgiveness in the Clinton family, especially if there is a tiny bit of the ring of truth in the questionable comment. Today we want to destroy people for what they say!
"Yo, David... wanna go halfsies on a nice studio apartment someplace, together...?"
Give Kieth Olbermann a raise.
Schuster should shove Doug from Upland’s movie in her face
Shuster’s infraction does not rise to Fosterizing levels. This is not about secrets.
Is Chelsea a politician or not? Don’t put her on the stage and have her shleppin’ for votes if you don’t want her treated like politicians are treated regularly.
So a no-name reporter makes a comment about the Clintons and she wants him fired, yet her husband had a right to keep his job after lying to his cabinet, lying to the American people, and lying under oath in a Federal Court. I’d have thrown in lying to her as well, but we all know she has know about his philandering for years and has allowed it to go on. As well, she said nothing to a woman in one of her campaign audiences, calling President Bush “the bastard.” She just stood there and smirked.
I won’t be surprised if Shuster gets fired. This is obviously much worse than Don Imus’ offense, since in this case it was Hillary who was offended. The point is to make everyone who makes a living by reporting or commenting on the news afraid to say anything that might offend the Clintons.
Just heard that Schuster is going back to Fox to replace Geraldo.
This should be a WAKE UP CALL (!!!) to anyone in the media who still shills for the grifter Clinton’s ... WAKE UP!!! This is just the beginning, could you imagine this woman in a position of power to suspend YOUR First Amendment rights along with everyone elses? WAKE UP !!!!
Shuster should make his televised public apology at the site of Vince Foster’s “suicide”.
Hillary v. Schuster: It would be nice to see them both lose.
Okay, we’ll elect McCain so he can call everybody f’n a-holes.
I would urge that the Drive-By media look at the pattern of the Clinton's behavior, that repeatedly leads to the Drive-By media covering up the very pattern it should be exposing.
Hillary made a career of looking at Bill's pattern of behavior that somehow degraded her with no consequence.
The Queen has been offended. Look out, America!
AND NEVER FORGET

Ronald Miller: Suddenly took ill on October 3rd,1997 and steadily worsened until his death 9 days later. (This pattern fits Ricin poisoning.) Owing to the strangeness of the illness, doctors at the Integris Baptist Medical Center referred the matter to the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office. The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office promptly ran tests on samples of Ron Miller’s blood, but has refused to release the results or even to confirm that the tests were ever completed.
Had been investigated by authorities over the sale of his company, Gage Corp. to Dynamic Energy Resources, Inc. was the man who tape recorded Gene and Nora Lum and turned those tapes (and other records) over to congressional oversight investigators. The Lums were sentenced to prison for campaign finance violations, using “straw donors” to conceal the size of their contributions to various candidates.

Worked for Hill magazine, about Congress for Congress.
Jim McDougal: Bill and Hillary Clinton friend, banker, and political ally, sent to prison for eighteen felony convictions. A key whitewater witness, dies of a heart attack on March, 8 1998.

Charles Wilbourne Miller: 63, was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head on November 17, 1998 in a shallow pit about 300 yards from his ranch house near Little Rock. Police found a .410 gauge shotgun near Miller’s body and a Ruger .357-caliber revolver submerged in water. Investigators concluded the Ruger was the weapon used by Miller to kill himself. Yet, two rounds in the handgun’s cylinder had been spent.
He had long served as executive vice president and member of the board of directors for a company called Alltel and was deeply involved in his own software engineering company until the day he died. Alltel is the successor to Jackson Stephens’ Systematics, the company that provided the software for the White House’s “Big Brother” data base system and that was behind the administration’s plan to develop the secret computer “Clipper” chip to bug every phone, fax and email transmission in America.
Carlos Ghigliotti: 42, was found dead in his home just outside of Washington D.C. on April 28, 2000. There was no sign of a break-in or struggle at the firm of Infrared Technology where the badly decomposed body of Ghigliotti was found. Ghigliotti had not been seen for several weeks.
Ghigliotti, a thermal imaging analyst hired by the House Government Reform Committee to review tape of the siege, said he determined the FBI fired shots on April 19, 1993. The FBI has explained the light bursts on infrared footage as reflections of sun rays on shards of glass or other debris that littered the scene.
“I conclude this based on the groundview videotapes taken from several different angles simultaneously and based on the overhead thermal tape,” Ghigliotti told The Washington Post last October. “The gunfire from the ground is there, without a doubt.”
Ghigliotti said the tapes also confirm the Davidians fired repeatedly at FBI agents during the assault, which ended when flames raced through the compound. About 80 Branch Davidians perished that day, some from the fire, others from gunshot wounds.
Mark Corallo, a spokesman for the congressional committee chaired by Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., said that police found the business card of a committee investigator in Ghigliotti’s office. Corallo said Ghigliotti’s work for the committee ended some time ago.
Tony Moser: 41, was killed as he crossed a street in Pine Bluff, Ark on on June 10, 2000. Killed 10 days after being named a columnist for the Democrat-Gazette newspaper and two days after penning a stinging indictment of political corruption in Little Rock.
Police have concluded that no charges will be filed against the unnamed driver of a 1995 Chevrolet pickup, which hit Moser as he was walking alone in the middle of unlit Rhinehart Road about 10:10 p.m
Police say they have ruled out foul play and will file no charges against the driver because he was not intoxicated and there was no sign of excessive speed.

Just a preview of the fear and loathing America’s number one witch will spread around if president. Her thighness must be defeated at all costs
This isn’t the White House Travel Office Hillary!!!
This comment wasn't really a jab at Chelsea as it was the cold truth about her parents.
And I'm not surprised to see herthighness taking advantage of this opportunity to play the victim card either.
Curious - why doesn't Chelsea look anything like Bill?
Wasn’t it MSNBC that stated Fred’s wife looked as if “she was working the Pole”? I can’t remember who it was.
I should qualify that by saying I'm not a lawyer, so I don't know if bigamy is legal in Arkansas.
That would actually be fine with me.
This is going to backfire on her big time. She is in a race where she is no longer the nominee of inevitability. The gloves may be off with the msm when it comes to the 21st century clintons....
If we follow her criteria, then Krissy Matthews, K. Olbermann, Joe Scarborough, Harry Reid - well, 99% of the left, would be without a job.
Do these people not even see their own hypocrisy?
Hey, madam - you put your daughter out there into the melee - she’s fair game.If she can't take the heat, let her retreat
LMAO.....Nowhere in the letter does she deny that Bill’s stepchild is a Pimp.
This is going to backfire on her big time. She is in a race where she is no longer the nominee of inevitability. The gloves may be off with the msm when it comes to the 21st century clintons....
Bingo - baby daddy alert!
That is exactly right. Obama may be leftist, but it’s the Clintons who use the power of the government to persecute enemies. If they are back in power, conservative groups can expect IRS audits and other government bully tactics to be used against them as a matter of course. And not just conservative groups, but anyone who dares criticize.
As long as she uses her daughter as a Prop for her phony family, Chelsea is fair game. Schuster needs to apologize to Prostitutes for soiling their name.
Pray for W and Our Troops
Attention news networks:
The obvious solution to the problems involved with trying to avoid offending or enraging Hillary Clinton with comments about her, her campaign, or her family, is to NOT report on anything concerning her, her campaign, or her family.
That’s right, a complete news blackout.
We know you have the power and the determination to do this, because it’s what you all did to Duncan Hunter.
Nothing justifies the kind of debasing language that David Shuster used and no temporary suspension or half-hearted apology is sufficient. Therefore, I want his head brought to me on a platter.
LOL! She’s gonna milk this for all it’s worth. I have no love for Shuster, and I would agree that his language was crude for a mainstream national newscast. But she’s now going the full Don Imus/Rurgers route to (surprise!) ratchet up the women’s vote. Who can’t empathize with a woman whose daughter was insulted?
Meanwhile, she continues to live with a man who shamed Chelsea a hell of a lot more than Shuster did. He also shamed in a very physical way the daughters of other parents. Why doesn’t she “fire” Bill?
Yes she will and the message will be received by all who might be so bold as to confront the Clintons, if even in jest. Do so at your own peril.
Rurgers = Rutgers
Lennon as well as Marx ......
Sorry, couldn't resist :)
Shouldn’t someone do a collection of times the MSM have called people pimps and nobody noticed? Like when they said that Bush was pimping for Petraeus? Or the time recently when they said that Romney was doing a pimp walk?
Those are just two, but I’ll bet there are many more.
Why is Her Imperial Highness different from anyone else?
How come anyone who offends the clintons gets fired? But you can leak state secrets to terrorists and that’s freedom of the press?
One rule for the clintons and another for the rest of us?
I’m not a fan of Imus, but who can doubt that he was fired because hillary wanted him out of the way for the election campaign, since he was one of the few people on TV who had ever dared criticize the clintons and lived to tell about it?
