Hillary Blames Bush for Blackout
NewsMax.com ^ | Aug. 15, 2003 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 08/15/2003 6:21:36 AM PDT by Hugenot

Just hours after the Northeastern power grid went down shutting off electricity for 50 million Americans, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton took to the airwaves to blame President Bush and his administration's energy policies for pushing deregulation and coddling corrupt power companies like Enron.

"I happen to think that making sure we have a reliable, affordable system of energy is a national priority - and I don't think that this administration sees it that way," Clinton told CNN's "Larry King Live."

"They have continued to try to push deregulation and privatization, and to try to undo a lot of the systems in changes that many of us thought were important and necessary that we tried to work on during the Clinton administration under [Former Energy] Secretary [Bill] Richardson's leadership."

Sen. Clinton also accused the White House of throwing "a lot of roadblocks in the way of [Calif. Gov. Gray] Davis, when he tried to clean up some of the problems that he had with the manipulation of the energy markets by Enron and others."

"So, no," she insisted, "I don't think the federal administration under this president is really focused on making sure we don't have these problems in the future."

Before Clinton phoned in her comments to the King Show, however, Gov. Richardson, now governor of New Mexico, noted that her husband had done little to address the problem during his eight years in office.

"In the Clinton administration, everybody yawned about this, [saying] oh, we don't need to do this. Oh, we don't have a crisis," he told King.

First off I don't even want to hear Hildebeast go on about the Energy issue. Her husband did nothing about exploring new enery sources or developing any policy on the matter. When Bush tried the Dems launched a witch-hunt against his Energy taskforce. Dems also have politicized the environment as an issue to such an extent that they clearly oppose any modernization of the power grid. Dems also oppose more efficient energy systems such as Nuclear Power. Also we can blame Clinton's lack of energy policy on the looming problem of rising Natural Gas prices this winter. Dems clearly want to whine about their demands for energy, but in practice will do nothing about it.

Of course she's running. Like her rapist husband, campaigning is a permanent lifestyle.

Well let's see...

Bush could nationalize all the powerplants and divide the country up into regions. He could appoint lawyers to run each of these regions and decide how much juice everyone could use.

Naw, that DEFINITELY wouldn't work....

It isn't a coincidence that the areas most effected by these energy crisis (California and the Northeast) are regions totally controlled by liberals.

Excellent observation.

So, she got on cnn AND msnbc (they deserve to be in small letters from now on) and blamed the Bush Administration? While it was still dark in N.Y. State? Knowing that no one in N.Y. will hear her? But she knew she was talking to an aware American Audience. Yeah, she's in for 2004 alright,otherwise, she'd be talking about a solution so this wouldn't occur again......but she's a Saul Alinsky Sycophant, so I'm not surprised at this behavior at all,it's to be expected. 2 more reasons I'm proud I don't watch those channels with any regularity.

Dear Senator Clinton!

I believe we should look into the feasability of going to all nuclear power!
Thank you for reading this, you fat ass bee-itch,
and why don't you get your stupid @$$ back to the senate where you belong???

Thank you!

Hillary Clinton and Chretian are close. They spent spring break together.

Would not surprise me if he yanked the power just after we announced our al-quade capture to give Hillary a boost.

He made a stupid remark about a lightning strike (like we can't figure out that was a lie?)

Why else would she make the huge mistake of jumping in front of this issue ASAP. It's like she knew it was coming, and thought it would last for days and she could gain momentum from it.....think about it.

Now the power is coming back, Chretian is caught in a lie, and we have her shutting up.

Most don't 'Get It' about HILLARY.
They don't think like HO CHI MINH did during his push to take over South Vietnam for Communism.

Take yesterday for example:

Thurs AM:
HILLARY Mouthpiece & Calif. Gov. Candidate ARIANNA HUFFINGTON tries to link ARNOLD to ENRON on TV.

Thurs Afternoon:
A massive Power Blackout in America's Northeast starts up in the same place in upstate New York as a similiar one did in the 1960's.

Thurs Evening:
HILLARY herself tries to link Enron & this new Power Blackout to President BUSH on CNN's 'Larry King-Live' TV Interview Show.

Thurs Evening:
On TV the Liberal Canadian Government blames power blackout on a Lighting strike on a Buffalo, New York Nuclear Power Plant.

Thurs Night:
An All-Day Thursday Lighting Map for the entire United States shows NO LIGHTNING present north of Georgia-North Carolina in the East ...which is NOT shown on TV.


"It's the TV, Stupid, no matter WHO pays for it" = CLINTON M.O., still

She is in way over her head on this issue. She probably can't even spell electric transmission system, and certainly knows nothing of the technical details.

Like Gore's understanding of global warming, Hillary's understanding of the power grid is limited to knowing that there are votes to be gained by uttering the words.

I know about Arianna attempting to link Arnold to Enron. What a jackass. Both of them.

I didn't know about Canada blaming lightning on the power outage.

I know who Ho Chi Minh is, but don't know the story. I was kind of young when that was going on. Could you elaborate?

Hillary is a classic narcissistic sociopath. That's her story.

NEVER FORGET


Friends of HILLARY =

-Liberal Prime Minister of Canada

-1960's Terrorist Dictator of Communist North Vietnam HO CHI MINH who America was fighting in order to keep South Vietnam Free.

...After my returning home from the first major battles of the Vietnam War...

...I was stunned to see HILLARY RODHAM & BILL CLINTON acting in support of HO CHI MINH's Communist Victory over US and Freedom for a then Free South Vietnam.

The Enemy is now Within...
and always has been.

Now we know why HILLARY & BILL CLINTON refused 3 No-String Offers from the Sudan to extradite our No. 1 Terrorist Enemy OSAMA bin LADEN to the custody of a U.S. Jail & Trial during the 1990's that would have prevented the Attacks on us all on September 11, 2001...

...don't we..???

...WHY did former 11 year Los Alamos Congressman RICHARDSON's Energy Dept authorize fires all around our Nuclear Lab during the yearly windy season that resulted in... ...the Loss of our Miniature NUKE technology to our enemies..?

You can put aside your tinfoil hat regard Richardson's role in the Los Alamos fire. It was started as a controlled burn by a low level National Park Service employee of Bandelier National Monument. From there it spread to Dept. of Agriculture Forest Service lands and about a week after it started, it reached the lab boundary. It destroyed more of the town than the lab, where most of the buildings were spared due to thinning of the forest (something the envirowhackos prevented for the Forest Service lands -- timber cutting is a no-no for them).

As for the rest of your chronology, I know nothing about Washington state forest fires, but I do know that Hazel O'Leary (and her successor Federico Pena) was likely more responsible for loss of nuclear secrets than Richardson was. In the spirt of "openness" which the liberals subscribed to following the election of Clinton, she ordered relaxed security at the labs and encouraged "scientific" exchanges between US and foreign nationals at the labs and overseas. It was during the period from 1993 though 1998 before he became secretary when most of the damage was done. What Richardson's part in the Energy Department's "open door" policy is still subject to debate. But he stepped into more sh!t than he caused during his 2 1/2 year tenure.

...I remember when it happened that it was Friend of the CLINTONS and longtime Los Alamos Area resident BILL RICHARDSON's Energy Department that gave it's authorization knowlingly for the "Controlled" Burns around our Los Alamos Nuclear Labs during Los Alamos' windiest season of the year.

...The very Classroom where most of the early therotical work was done on the development of the 1st Atomic Bomb by our Nuclear Scientists, including the very preserved chalk board with early nuclear equations on it, was destroyed during the fires of Los Alamos.

...Shortly after the Los Alamos Fires an American Nuclear Intelligence expert did state on the full FoX News Channel that it was our OWN Suitcase NUKE Technology that turned up missing at Los Alamos after the Fires. The use of which we all now fear in Time of War.

...NOTRA TRULOCK, of the Los Alamos Labs, agrees with everything I share here and has stated so publically on 'The Judicial Watch Report' Talk Radio Show.

...NEVER FORGET that as President BUSH was preparing to bring Freedom to Iraq, the Friend of the CLINTONS ..North Korea flexed its Nuclear Muscle as a diversion to try and stop BUSH from acting in Iraq. The CLINTONS quest for more Power just couldn't stand a BUSH Victory there.

...NEVER FORGET that it was Friend of HILLARY ..BILL RICHARDSON that the North Koreans went running to in America during the Iraq war, even soliciting a Tour of the Los Alamos Lab from him. They knew their and HILLARY's Man when they saw him.

...Thank GOD that BUSH had told KIM JUNG Ill to just go underground for 40 days at the start of the Iraq War, which he did, running suddenly silent.

GOD Bless our Commander-in-Chief BUSH.
