Hillary makes embarrassing gaffe as she confuses names of Britain's political parties in UK
Daily Mail ^ | 4 July 2014 | Damien Gayle and Chris Pleasance

Mrs Clinton confused names of political parties in interview with BBC.

Said Tories and Conservatives were opponents in Houses of Parliament. Names actually refer to the same party, Labour being the other main party.

Gaffe is particularly embarrassing given she was former Secretary of State .

...

Clinton suggested that the Conservatives and Tories were opponents, when in fact the two names refer to the same party.

The gaffe is particularly embarrassing for Clinton as she used to be Secretary of State, and so is expected to have extensive knowledge of foreign affairs.

...

Sales of Mrs Clinton's book have so far been well short of expectations, reaching just 160,000 in its first week. .. sales of the book continue to plummet, and it looks increasingly unlikely bookstores will be able to sell the million hard copies the publishing group distributed to them when the book dropped earlier this month.

I think Hillary is doing all of this on purpose. She's probably just gathering material for a follow-up book to “Hard Choices.” This one will be called “Stupid Statements.”

Good thing for her she’s Hillary. The American “media” will either not touch this or excuse it as a result of tireless, energetic scheduling that would of course run down people half her age.

We’re this Sarah Palin, the “media” wod relentlessly pile on with editorials about how I’ll-prepared she is for national office.

Worst Sec of State since the extremely unqualified William Jennings Bryan, who upon learning about Haiti (the 2nd oldest independent nation in the Western Hemisphere) remarked “Imagine that, (N word)s speaking French!”.

And remember there were French speaking Black people in the US, in Louisiana.

Corrected version...

Good thing for her she’s Hillary. The American “media” will either not touch this or excuse it as a result of tireless, energetic scheduling that would of course run down people half her age.

Were this Sarah Palin, the “media” would relentlessly pile on with editorials about how ill-prepared she is for national office.

Bless her heart!
Have some feelings for the senile, doddering, old matriarch of a slowly rotting left wing agenda.
It must be hard for her to provide a living wage for her and the reprobate she is hooked to.

Liberals don’t need to be knowledgeable. They are considered smart just because they are liberal. So they do really dumb stuff, and get away with it.

I remember when “W” was first running, and he was asked a gotcha question about who the president or prime ministers of various countries were. And he was tripped up on who the leader was of some small country, perhaps Nepal?? Anyway, the media had a field day with that, and indicated that Bush was clearly unqualified for national office due to that gaffe.

No need for Hillary to worry. She knows there are 51 states ... Kerry’s wife once taught her.

This is the smartest woman in the world talking.

Somebody owes Dan Quayle a big apology.

In fact, Dan Quayle could be one of the more qualified candidates for President in 2016.

"Names actually refer to the same party, Labour being the other main party".

Ironically, there maybe some truth to this.....
The natives can no longer tell them apart either.

Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton were at a Jefferson-Jackson `Democratic Solidarity’ 4th of July picnic in Bugtussle, Appalachia (our 53rd state) campaigning: `Cochran for Senate’.

The picnic organizers thought the crowd might get a kick out of the three national powerhouses competing in a simple contest.
It went like this: Nancy, Joe and Hillary sat on the stage, side-by-side, and at the count of three, each one would clap their hands as fast as they could.
The one to complete their clap the fastest was the winner. The winner got an ice cream.

At three, Nancy just sat there, hands in her lap staring vacantly into space.
Joe tried, but missed completely.
Hillary managed to connect a small clap.

So they handed her the prize, the ice cream cone,
and she promptly jammed it into her forehead.

Actually the JOKE is on the BRITS, for allowing themselves to be CONNED into thinking that they really had different parties when they voted.

They have a party that claims to be conservative that hasn’t lifted a conservative finger in DECADES and they have a party that claims to be liberal that is liberal...and no different from the party that claims to be conservative. It’s all the same there.

Except UKIP...we’ll see how their version of the Tea Party works out. It is their ONLY HOPE.

ROTFLMAO ..!!!!!!

She wasn’t given that job because of any knowledge or expertise she had .. she was given that job to keep her out of Obama’s hair.

Media is dumber than a rock.

No problem. If she thinks there are 58 American states, then she’s fully qualified to be president.

Remember when a certain governor of Texas couldn’t name the leader of CHECHNYA?

And the media had their panties in a wad:

Hitlery doesn’t know the BASICS about a major ally.

Years of booze.

Possible drug use when younger & more openly radical.

Fell a couple of years ago & had a head injury.

Early-onset of age-related Alzheimer’s.

ALL of the above.

If she was smarter than obama she never would have gotten the job.
