Hillary: I've Gotten Used to Being Booed
newsmax ^ | Monday Dec. 17

Posted on 12/16/2001 8:20:36 PM PST by classygreeneyedblonde

Since launching her bid to become New York's senator, Hillary Clinton says she's been booed by crowds so many times that she's now gotten used to it.

Asked about an incident where she was booed off the stage at Paul McCartney's Oct. 20 concert to honor firefighters and police killed in the Twin Tower attacks, Mrs. Clinton told the New York Times Sunday Magazine, "I've gotten used to being in situations in political life, either vicariously or on my own, where that just happens sometimes."

Clinton described the humiliating heckling episode as "part of the healing process" in the wake of the World Trade Center attack.

"(The firefighters and cops) can blow off steam any way they want to," she added. "They've earned it."

The former first lady has also been publicly booed at New York City's St. Patrick's and Israeli Day parades as well as at her own New Year's Eve Millenium celebration on Washington's Mall.

Clinton campaign biographer Beth Harpaz, author of the book, "The Girls on the Van," recently told Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly that Sen. Clinton hasn't attended any funerals for constituents killed in the 9/11 attacks because she's afraid she'll be booed.

And while she wasn't heckled or jeered during her first visit to Ground Zero on Sept. 14, one on-the-scene source told NewsMax.com that firemen and cops refused to shake her hand.

The Times profile also revealed that Mrs. Clinton's obnoxious eye-rolling during President Bush's address to Congress just days after the 9/11 attacks was more typical than previously known.

"Her aides insisted it had nothing to do with the president," reported Timesman Frank Bruni.

"But when I later saw her at a Senate budget committee hearing, she silently and reflexively shook her head and rolled her eyes almost every time one of the economists who were testifying mentioned Bush's tax cut."

Not so funny, here. Hitlery. We are the ones who need healing after hearing and seeing you.

Just lying again. People with as much of an ego and a loathing for hearing from the commoners as she has will always hate it. We just need to keep it up at every opportunity.

When she ventures out from the protective bubble of complient media lapdogs, she gets booed.

That's why she stays in the "sanitized zone" where only eunichs like Russert get to interview her.

Senator Clinton will split the difference between isolationism and interventionism and give us our first "passive-aggressive" foreign policy.

It worked so well in keeping her husband in line, after all.

And that maudlin, self-pitying vein is a sure winner too. Look what it did for Nixon.

What's more news worthy: a New York Senator and former First Lady being booed off the stage by the FDNY/NYPD and their supporters (on national TV no less) or Dan Quayle spelling potato with an "e" ?

Guess which story made it's way to the network news.

"Clinton described the humiliating heckling episode as "part of the healing process" in the wake of the World Trade Center attack."

Ya gotta hand it to her. Taking Chutzpah to new heights! Wasn't her they were heckling. No sir. They were heckling because it was part of the 'healing process' by which, presumably, they were being healed ... by heckling her.

Ergo, she was performing a useful service, for feeling their pain, she promptly presented herself as an object of hecking in order to further the healing process. For them. And for the children.

"Passive-aggressive foreign policy." ROFLMAO!!!

I can hear it now:

"Well. You don't want to sign the treaty. That's just fine. Is something wrong with me? No, nothing. What could be wrong? I'm fine. Fine. I'll just fly 7,000 miles back to Washington with no treaty. Why should that be a problem...?"

I'm sure she's got used to being married to a philandering,low-life scumbag also.

But as with 9/11,we will never forget!:

Clinton Impeached

House Approves Articles Alleging Perjury, Obstruction
By Peter Baker and Juliet Eilperin
Washington Post Staff Writers
Sunday, December 20, 1998; Page A1

The House of Representatives impeached the president of the United States yesterday for only the second time in American history, charging William Jefferson Clinton with "high crimes and misdemeanors" for lying under oath and obstructing justice to cover up an Oval Office affair with a young intern.

Good. I'm tempted to go to NY for St Paddy's Day to add to the number of Irish booing her.

Heckling is Saying stuff like "nana, nana, naaanaa" and "you're mother wears army boots." Those firefighters weren't heckling, they were venting their disgust for Hillary.

Clinton described the humiliating heckling episode as "part of the healing process" in the wake of the World Trade Center attack.

But no one else, except Richard Gere, got booed -- and in Gere's case it's what was said. Someone should ask Hillary why specifically booing her is so therapeutic. I mean, we know why, but I'd love to hear her try to answer that.

For no reason except to help her become "Senator" Clinton, they pardoned terrorists. Terrorists who helped blow up things. Among those things was a cop.

And they pardoned them - against the strong objections of the prosecutors and law enforcement.

I wonder if that might explain why some cops and firefighters do not cheer for her.

It is her that needs healing, not them. She is very sick.

I hope she runs, and I REALLY hope she pays a visit to Livingston County, or even here in demorat Lansing. I'll get everyone I can to just run her out of my state.

This will be so much fun, and will make my fundraising job(if I'm still MCRGO PAC treasurer) SO EASY! :D.

I'll be in NYC on vacation for St. Paddy's Day. I hadn't thought of the added attraction of maybe getting the opportunity to boo Hillary. This adds more stuff to anticipate besides the parade and some Broadway shows.

I'll just make sure I'll be tipping back lots O' Guinness before hand.

Booing Hillary will make my year. Especially if that "Catholic[in name only]" Andrew Cuomo Kennedy is in the parade as well. I hate that guy even more.

I'd better start warming up the ol' booing chords now, just in case. And as you suggest, I'll make sure to have lots of Guinness as a voice lubricant beforehand. :)
