Clinton Portrays Herself as a Pro-Gun Churchgoer
New York Times ^ | 4/12/2008 | Julie Bosman

Posted on 04/12/2008 9:42:27 PM PDT by kingattax

VALPARAISO, Ind. - Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton managed to co-opt Mr. Obama’s message of hope and optimism, beginning a speech in Valparaiso, Ind., by talking about how positive and “fundamentally optimistic” Americans are.

“We don’t get bogged down and looking back – we’re always looking forward,” she said, as heavy applause nearly drowned out her words. “Whatever obstacle we see, we get over it. Whatever challenge we have, we meet it. We’re the problem-solvers, we’re the innovators, we’re the people who make the better future.”

For the third time since Mr. Obama’s remarks were made public Friday night, Mrs. Clinton criticized him at length, saying his comments seemed “kind of elitist and out of touch.”

“I disagree with Senator Obama’s assertion that people in our country cling to guns and have certain attitudes about immigration or trade simply out of frustration,” she said.

She described herself as a pro-gun churchgoer, recalling that her father taught her how to shoot a gun when she was a young girl and said that her faith “is the faith of my parents and my grandparents.”

hillary would portray herself as an albino pistol-packin buddhist if she thought that would get her a few votes.

hillary has now proven that she is warped far beyond anything ever seen in the universe.

Hillary is in the wrong party when she starts morphing into Rush Limbaugh. LOL!

That must have come in handy when she was returning fire in Bosnia ay.

> and said that her faith “is the faith of my parents and my grandparents.”

Devil worship perhaps?

She actually marched into Richar Mellon Scaife’s Pittsburgh Tribune office and LAUGHED IT UP and sat right across RMS and sought and recieved his support.

This is the man who accused her of murdering Vince Foster and funded Paula Johns and David Brock and others and was one of the main force behind VRWC.

If Hillary doesn’t mind yucking it up with a man who accused her of murder, then fake Bible reading and remniscing about HUNTING TRIPS is nothing to her.

Come over here and bring your Hillary anti-gun remark from 1999.

Hillary would take up Rush's monologues if she thought it would help her get her votes.

Hillary is also the wicked itch that accused the Republicans in the House of Representatives a couple of years back over their immigration bill... If the Republicans could they would make Jesus illegal... Old Hillary could teach Obama some elitist lessons.

She ...[lied again as she] ...described herself as a pro-gun churchgoer, recalling that her father taught her how to shoot a gun when she was a young girl and said that her faith “is the faith of my parents and my grandparents.”

Absolutely anyone can tell she is lying again, here.

If Hillary were telling the truth, she would have dressed up in a camouflage pant suit, and said something like...

"Were do I go to get me a huntin' license?"

Oh, wait. That's not it, either.

You’re a hippocrite, Hillary, but thanks for the tribute.

She's almost there!

I predicted more than a year ago that she will run as an evangelical pro-lifer.

Most candidates pretend to be conservatives at election time.

LOL! The real sad part is that whatever LIE that Klintons choose to perpetuate, they do it with such confidence, knowing fully well that probability of anyone in media challenging them is low, and people have short memories, and tomorrow they can tell them something else, or even better whatever they want to hear.

I clearly recall article after article when Klintons were in WH How they HATED even the mere presence of Military personnel in the WH. How they wanted to keep them out of sight.

Now Klintons are going around and telling VETERANS they love them and and have always loved them and how they both tried to SIGN UP FOR MILITARY SERVICE but didn’t make it.

People talk about Glowbama. The real magic is with Klintons. They can make anyone believe whatever they want.

It doesn’t surprise me in the least that she makes the attempt. I am constantly amazed that ANYONE still buys her crap ;’}
