As Allahpundit would say, shes a special lady:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton compared Nigerias corruption and electoral problems with the 2000 Florida presidential election recount during a town hall meeting today in Abuja, Nigeria.
Answering a question about Nigerias recent election, Clinton said, In 2000, our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of the man running for President was the governor of the state. So we have our problems too.
That is a tasty combo of the Obama administrations America sucks foreign policy, coated in some rich, gooey Bush Deragement Syndrome. Sure, the media recounts of the 2000 election showed that the recounts requested by Al Gore or ordered by the Florida Supreme Court would have still resulted in a victory for George W. Bush. Why would that stop our countrys chief diplomat from suggesting that her predecessors in government were there illegitimately? Certainly not Pres. Obamas faux insistence that we let go of the politics of the past.
The sad thing is that this story will be heard by few Americans, and will register with even fewer. The silver lining? If the US Secretary of State can bestride the globe this drenched in BDS almost nine years after the fact without notice, what are the odds that a few anti-ObamaCare protesters are going to scare anyone today? (hint: Long odds.)
Update (AP): Heres the clip. Between this and her Im the secretary of state freakout the other day, shes having a hell of a trip.

Mark these words. Hillary thinks she’s got a shot at beating Obama in the 2012 DemocRAT primaries. And she may be right.
Liberals will never quit pissing and moaning about that election. Losers, one and all.
She’s meeeelting...she’s meeeelting!
More evidence that the Obama administration is in trouble.
“The sad thing is that this story will be heard by few Americans, and will register with even fewer.”
The OTHER sad thing is that way too many here won’t hear it for the treasonous bullshite it is, but because they agree...
Look at it this way, with )bama failing so badly, you could resign and run again in 2010 with the slogan.."I TOLD YOU SO."
Hmmmmmmm. Let me look back in those archives. We just had a (D)....who voted AGAINST ‘ID for VOTERS’.....but insists that it be used for town hall meetings.
Yeah, Shrillary. Whatevah.
What an incredibly disgraceful thing for any U.S. official, much less the Secretary of State, to say to a foreign audience.
Hillary has said lots of stupid things over the years.
One stupid thing she said that I have wondered about is this: She once said “how hard is it to find the tallest man in Afghanistan?” She was referring to Bin Laden, as he is well over 6 feet tall. Well, now that good Democrats are in charge, why haven’t they found Bin Laden? What is she doing as Sec. of State to find war criminals such as Bin Laden?
In fact, now that good Democrats are in charge, all of the world’s problems will be solved. We will live in a socialist utopia and live in a nuclear free world. All thanks to Obama and Hillary and Nancy P. and Harry Reid and Rahm Emmanuel and the gang.
Hillary is really getting stressed. Maybe its time for some of that “end of life” counseling.
I guess Hillary has forgotten how Ralphie Nader drained 97,000 votes in Florida from Algor, and handed the election to Bush.
If we don’t have a good winnable candidate
then you know, I wouldn’t care if it was her.
I like her screeching better then 0’s voice.
That drone voice might work for community organizing but not
as a president.
She wouldn’t last any longer then 0 is going to last.
She would screw up again. By then I would hope
the right had grown some.
As a member of the Obama Administration, it is Hillary’s sworn duty to urinate on America whenever possible.
The 2008 election was the mother of all rigged elections.
Of course it was rigged. All stops were pulled, even to point of Dan Rather calling Florida at five past seven when the polls closed at eight. And Bush won anyway!
Election 2000 was rigged - and the dems were astounded that Bush won anyway!
US foreign policy Previous Administration.
US- “Please do what we ask.”
Russia- “You suck! We are not going to do that”
US- “We suck. Please do what we ask??!”
Russia- “We like you now! But no we are not going to do what you want, sorry : )”
Or replace Russia with any other nonsense, Iran, NK, The Beard, Fat Baby Hugo, etc.
What a sickening thing for a Sec. of State to say. Where’s her damn proof?
I understand why Bill went to Vegas for his birthday.
