Another disgrace: In Nigeria, Hillary hints that 2000 U.S. election was rigged

As Allahpundit would say, she’s a special lady:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton compared Nigeria’s corruption and electoral problems with the 2000 Florida presidential election recount during a town hall meeting today in Abuja, Nigeria.

Answering a question about Nigeria’s 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 administration’s “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 country’s chief diplomat from suggesting that her predecessors in government were there illegitimately? Certainly not Pres. Obama’s 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): Here’s the clip. Between this and her “I’m the secretary of state” freakout the other day, she’s 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.

Ah, Hillary. That bitch in you just keeps on coming out, doesn't it?

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."

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.

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.

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!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As the eternal lurker, I must say “Give me a F___ing Break!”

Outside United States Borders?

In an F - N Banana Republic?

As the GD’d SECRETARY OF STATE?

And the Smartest woman on the continent (previous award)?

She has the Balls to question the electoral system of the United States?

(And I am getting lip for “FREE THE LONG FORM!”?)

I guess I can agree, WE DO HAVE OUR PROBLEMS, TOO!

(what an ignorant C-word.)

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.”

Because of that statement Ms Clinton should be removed from office. She should also be tried for treason!

Like it or not, the 2000 election procedure was followed according to our laws. If this dolt named Clinton can't handle that, she needs to relocate to a country that she finds better than the US!!!!!!

Hillary is right. We do have our problems with elections, but those problems have little, if anything, to do with whom is Governor of which state and more to do with the lack of standards in counting the votes in a recount. One precinct counts hanging chads another interprets voter intentions and still another finds missing votes.

It’s all about which party can make the best arguments in court to convince the judge which votes should be counted and which should be discarded.

Another significant problem is the national media calling precincts for one candidate over another and in so doing affecting the votes in other states and time zones. That needs to come to an end. It would be better to let all the precincts report in with no updates whatsoever. We should all find out who won after the last precinct in Hawaii reports 100% of its votes.

And don’t even get me started on ACORN-sponsored voter fraud or caucus fraud or open primaries or corrupt political parties etc.

But in order to take down an incumbent of ones own party in the Presidential primaries their party would almost have to have been completely destroyed by the Prez. The cry of “here I come to save the day” won't matter much if there's nothing left to save.

Let’s say Hillary gets TOTUS to dictate this phrase for Obama: “I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President.”

It has been done before. Hillary, being a child of the sixties, surely believes that RFK would have defeated Nixon in ‘68. I bet she thinks about it every day!

Actually - I firmly believe that the 2000 election WAS rigged. But the whole plan fell apart when voters beat the fix. That is why the Libtard/Dems threw such a temper tantrum. They had put a lot of effort, time, and money into buying/rigging the election. When their plan failed one domino after another, they felt they had been robbed.

But in a way, they won nearly as big of a victory - because they have convinced a lot of people that it was the Repubs who cheated. Stupid people since 2000 have reproduced and/or raised more stupid people.

Worse, according to “allafrica.com” reporting about her meeting in Nigeria, she disgusted the authentic Nigerian Government by sending invitations to meet with dissenters and opposers of the current Government, violating diplomatic protocol!!! They were really not happy with her!

Then, she meets with the opposition - and here’s what was written:

Visiting American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to meet in Abuja with a select group of top Nigerian opposition politicians, where issues bordering on electoral reform and the fight against corruption are expected to dominate discussions, officials said yesterday.

Daily Trust learnt that invitations to the meeting with Clinton have been sent to an unconfirmed number of top opposition politicians, including former Head of State Muhammadu Buhari and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, both of who contested but lost the 2007 presidential elections to President Umaru Yar’adua.

The meeting with the political leaders is to discuss “the challenges of Nigerian politics and possible way forward for democracy in the country,” an embassy official said.

Aides to Buhari and Abubakar have separately confirmed that their principals received invitations to meet with Clinton.

And then when Hitlery meets with them, she wants to make them feel better by telling them that we have problems with elections in the US? Tell me? How many died in the 2000 fiasco? Do you have any idea how many died in the post-election idiocy in Kenya? How many have died in Nigeria because of election opposition - the very people that Hitlery just dignified by meeting with them?

“Liberals will never quit pissing and moaning about that election. Losers, one and all”

They were so sure that they had that election stolen, and they came so close. The Florida supreme court was in the tank for them, but then at the last minute the US Supreme Court required Florida to follow its own laws. Oh, if only Beelzebubba had been able to appoint just one more leftist scoundrel...

You’re right, a defeat that bitter will never be forgotten. After all the ballot-box stuffing and stealing, all the absentee ballots lost, delayed, or illegally disqualified, all the lying propaganda and chad taping, they were denied by the same judiciary that has been such a good friend to them.

SCHADENFREUDE!
