Hillary Clinton portrays calls to quit as chauvinism
Telegraph.co.uk ^ | 3/30/08 | Toby Harnden

Posted on 03/30/2008 1:25:53 PM PDT by mdittmar

Faced with a growing chorus to abandon the uphill battle against Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton is falling back on what she sees as her trump card - her gender.

At other perilous junctures like the eve of the New Hampshire primary and the eve of Super Tuesday, the former First Lady highlighted her femininity during televised tearful moments. Now she is portraying the calls for her to quit as male chauvinism.

In comments leaked to the New York Times, Mrs Clinton is said to have told aides that she would not be "bullied out" of the White House race and in a conversation with two allies compared her plight to "big boys" trying to bully a woman.

During a weekend interview with the Washington Post - arranged at her request - she was asked whether Mr Obama could beat John McCain, the Republican nominee.

She responded: "I'm saying I have a better chance. You cannot as a Democrat win the White House without a very big women's vote. What I believe is that women will turn out for me."

In the past 10 days, Senators Chris Dodd and Pat Leahy and Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico - all key Obama allies - have urged Mrs Clinton to abandon her presidential bid so her party can unite around the young Illinois senator.

The DemonRats have two candidates who are obsessed with themselves. One is race obsessed. The other, gender obsessed. Her husband was sex obsessed. They should call themselves Sickocrats.

Yep. This week’s it’s the “sexism” card.

I fully expect to see some more fake tears by the PA primary.

Wait...Calls for her to drop out are sexism, but then she says more women will vote for her?

Hmmm.

You go girl!

Fight it out all the way through the convention. If you lose in the convention, fight it out in the courts. Don't let an uppity one term Senator cheat you out of your turn as President.

But it is time to stop pussy footing around. Pull out the big guns. Surely you've got some dirt on B.O. in those FBI files you took with you? If not, make some up. We know you can do it. Just think of B.O. as a bimbo eruption.

Hillary doesn't get it. Someone please send her "The Big L".

When she got in this race, she thought she would be the "beloved" of the party. There would be no nominee available EXCEPT her.

In her wildest dreams, she never dreamed a "Black man" with oratorical skills would step on stage.

All the other "men" were whimps...like Lazio...she would easily sweep them away....and she did.

ANd at this point, everyone knows she is NOT a team player but will lie, cheat, cry and mock at every turn.

Hey Hillary...Go iron your husbands shirts and a little reminder...YOUR MOTHER ironed your father's shirts.

Hillery and Obama will out politically correct each other, until they must resort to Pistols on the Potomac. Dueling would at least lead to a much longer silence.

The Ironies:

Its not sexist because any fool can tell you that Hillery is not a woman. Hillery is a Wanna be Woman.

Its not racist because Obama is only a pretend Black man, who has achieved education and success in life, handed to him on a white mans platter. Obama is a Wannabee Black Man. His neocolonial politicking in Kenya proves it.

The Dims didn’t count on this, a showdown between two of their cherished “victim” groups, a showdown that could very well split their hallowed allegiance to identity politics.

"What I believe is that women will turn out for me."

If women (excuse me, womyn) vote for her thighness because she is a woman, that's perfectly o.k. Just like it is o.k. for blacks to vote for B.O. because he is black.

But if you criticize Hillary for any reason, you are a chauvinist. If you criticize B.O. for any reason, you are a racist.

I hope McCain is paying attention, because whichever one gets the democRat nomination, this will be the centerpiece of the democRat campaign.

If it wasn’t for the race card and the gender card, Hillary and Obama wouldn’t have any cards at all. The public figuring this out is what’s keeping Howard Dean up at night.

Chauvinism.

Just like when she tried to join the Marines after she graduated from Yale Law School - and the Marine ridiculed her for being a woman?

The sniper lie has put Hillary down for the count. That was just too much for any reasonable (sic) democrat-leaning person.
Right?
The embellishment and certainty of the liar’s account has to shake up anyone previously fooled into thinking there was any integrity there.
Right?
I mean The Rev. was bad enough for Obama, but Hillary’s blatantly audacious lie is her own personal lie. No one can say she not a liar without lying.
Blame to Obama, though justified, is vicarious.
It’s like those monster movies where everyone knows the guy’s dead except the guy himself. Guy = HRC.
But, at least she has a sense of Huma.

Can you imagine how tired EVERYONE is going to be of hearing from and about these two narcissistic liberal demos by the convention?

What are they going to talk about between now and then?

Hillary, forget that stand by your man stuff.

Hon, it’s YOUR TURN. The DEMS OWE YOU!

(LOL)

Instead it’s time to make Helen Reddy’s song

YOUR THEME SONG !!!!!

!!! GET Reddy Helen - I Am Woman ringtones !!!

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
‘cause I’ve heard it all before
And I’ve been down there on the floor
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again

CHORUS
Oh yes I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman

You can bend but never break me
‘cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
‘cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul

CHORUS

I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin’ arms across the land
But I’m still an embryo
With a long long way to go
Until I make my brother understand

Oh yes I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to I can face anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman
Oh, I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong

FADE
I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong
I am woman

Be the MAN you are Hill. Go for it!

LOL!!!!!

I agree, 100 round drum magazines,

With any luck we would have nothing left but hamburg in both camps with Al Gore dragging his knuckles on the sidelines, nod, nod, wink, winking at the DNC.

A Nobel Laureate for president, and one who invented the internet!

I actually believe this story. I mean, if you were a Marine Recuiter, what would you say if she walked in.

I am guessing she also insisted on OCS.

"...Mrs Clinton is said to have told aides that she would not be "bullied out" of the White House race and in a conversation with two allies compared her plight to "big boys" trying to bully a woman.

Senator Clinton is not interested in Americans or what is best for the country - neither Obama/Michelle or Hillary/Bill would be good for the country, it can and will be torn asunder by any of them with their Socialist solutions regardless of the enormous success of capitalism which has made America the envy of all.

Senator McCain will not give my country away for some pie-in-the-sky utopian myth – he will instead tell the bums to get out or get with the programs.

As far as I am concerned its millions of bucks worth of entertainment. Pass the popcorn and hope that Hillery NEVER GIVES UP! GO GURL! You show those men!

Photobucket

And perhaps she WOULD HAVE WON IF..........

Photobucket I mean Obummer truly is a poofter light weight for a politician, he just has a few slick moves. He hasn't the strength to bowl, according to today's news? Buahahahahah! No wonder Hillery won't give up.
