Skip to comments.Hillary's excellent African tour (Did Jeb Bush really steal the 2000 elections for his brother?)
Posted on 08/16/2009 10:43:30 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Fresh from huffily telling an African student questioner that she, Hillary R. Clinton, was U.S. Secretary of State, not her husband, Clinton continues to set an example of how not to make friends and influence people in foreign lands, following the lead of her boss, President Barack Obama (D).
Clemente Lisi of the NY Post reports on her most recent arrogant, defamation of the country she represents while uttering a slanderous lie.
Clinton caused another firestorm during her trouble-plagued Africa tour last night by drawing comparisons between political corruption in Nigeria and President Bush's contested election win nine years ago in Florida.
The Secretary of State made the bizarre comparison during a speech to a group of political activists in the Nigerian capitol of Abuja, another stop on her 11-day, seven-country tour of the continent.
She singled out former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush -- the former president's brother -- with helping the GOP grab the White House from Democrat Al Gore.
"Our democracy is still evolving. You know we had some problems in some of our presidential elections," she said. "As you may remember, in 2000 our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of one of the men running for president was governor of the state. So we have our problems too."
During his recent trip to Africa, Obama, a product of the corrupt Chicago Democratic regime and whose administration is fully stocked with the corrupters, also warned African leaders about corruption. Nothing wrong with that; hopefully both Obama and Clinton will bring the same message to Chicago, to Cook County and to Illinois on their next fund raising trips.
And then on to other Democratic strongholds of corruption such as New Jersey and Louisiana. In the latter state, a Republican is doing his best to deal with the corruption. Straight talk by Obama and Clinton might help. Or maybe the African leaders can return the favor and lecture the more corrupt areas of the U.S. on the dangers of corruption. And it is needed.
Back in Barack's and Michelle's and Rahm's and David's and Arne's and Valerie's hometown--and yes, Hillary's too (she grew up in a close in suburb), except for police and fire, city offices will be closed for an unpaid holiday or reduced service day. Not enough money to pay city employees; too much public money was diverted to uhm, other schemes lining the private wallets of some lucky beneficiaries. And in Chicago, the dead vote (Democratic), early and often. So do illegal aliens. Dogs and cats too.
So Hillary, return to your birthplace to lecture the natives on evolving democracy and the evils of corruption. They'll certainly benefit. Now tell us about Whitewater again.
Poor, bitter Hilly. Marginalized to conducting a bash-America tour of Africa. Pathetic, hateful biaaaatch.
When a Democrats started talking about the election of 2000 and says it was stolen, just say one praise... ACORN 2008 !
Oh no. What is it with liberals. Do they think everyone operates without a code of ethics and morality, like they do? Sad. Really sad. If they had really WANTED a clear vote in Florida, they would have been willing to have the entire state either re-counted or re-voted. Period.
the Dems say they want a recount, but not a state wide recount but just in areas which go heavily for the Dems
so they get their recount in Dem area.
they do not get the numbers so they say recount again and again and again
in the meantime the Dems say hang on don’t go counting in red counties like mine
don’t go counting those absentee ballots or military votes
yes got it now
just pick and choose where to keep recounting, while not counting other votes.
If the results do not come in like they never they say they are cheated
Did the Rep steal the 2000 election from the Democrats? Of course we did and the best part is they will NEVER be able to prove it no matter how hard they try.
It’s been 9 years now so it’s time to fess up.
Believing the 2000 Elections were rigged = completely rational.
Believing Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii = Completely INSANE, and RACIST!
Now that she's out on her own (she wanted to be like Condi...on TV every day) she's again a victim of her own, nasty Chicago personality.
Worked for Al Franken!
Placing this story in my bitter old dyke file.
I'm tired of hearing about Whitewater.
Let's talk about commodities futures trading instead. I wanna be rich like Hillary and Bill.
Then let's talk about John Huang and all those yummy Chinese campaign contributions.
Yeah -- Al Gore's stooge Bill Daley tried to steal the election in broad daylight by taking critical ballot boxes into a locked, windowless room.
Gutty Republicans stopped that crap.
They did not stop them from recounting the ballots -- they kept them from tampering with the ballots.
Cry, Hillary, cry.
I think Hillary should talk about other problems in our elections. Such as, the outsized influence of certain political families and those with connections. She could have talked about the New York Senate election of 2000, in which native New Yorkers were shoved aside to make way for a political newcomer who didn’t even live in that state. She could have talked about how that political newcomer happened to be the wife of a president, so those political connections enabled that candidate to be nominated and elected.
And those same political connections led to that Senator being a serious candidate for president eight years later. She was not the most qualified candidate in the race by any traditional criteria, she was a serious candidate due to the political connections she had.
“Did Jeb Bush really steal the 2000 election?”
Of Course. Dontcha know Republicans are evil, they are capable of anything, they are mean, malevolent, don’t care about “the people”, hate all living things, love evil and dirty oil and the companies that drill for it, are just a bunch of nazis who lie, steal, cheat and love militias and crazy right-wing nuts? Dontcha know?
I’m so sick of that old canard that the GOP stole the election in Fl. in 2008. They have absolute ZERO proof—in fact several newspapers did their own recount and proof that GWB did indeed win Florida. It’s the RATS instead who are experts at stealing elections and they know it! Keep the HildeBeast in Africa-—free to roam the desert plains.
2000 Election was when REPUBLICANS stood up, and said “NO you aren’t going to take those ballots into a closed room and steal this election”...so the ballots had to be counted publicly...”hanging chads” and all.
Freepers got on a bus and went to Florida, and got there just in time...I remember it well...Some great FR guys saved the day, and the dems are still pissed they didn’t pull that heist off. It was so cool.
While our Republic is imploding!
The common thread pushing both the “the stolen 2000 election” conspiracy and the “Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii” conspiracy is the Pensylavania Democrat lawyer Phil Berg.
Really? I thought the entire MSM glee club was singing the "stolen election" rant-lie ever since November, 2000, accompanied by ranked choirs of fallen seraphim (the same ones that protect Bill Clinton and his bat-winged consort).
The Dems tried to steal it, but no soap.
For one thing, Clinton ordered mailbags full of absentee ballots from overseas military people dumped at sea.
Then there was the locked-room ploy.
But the proof is, the presstitutes recounted the ballots themselves, and no matter how they set the rules, no matter what criteria they used on the bulging or hanging chads, only one of six ways of doing the recount resulted in a Gore win -- Bush won all the others.
Sore/Loserman, indeed -- and that includes the entire media establishment.
I think you forgot the bitter clinging. And the "typical white people", thugs in "Brooks Brothers suits", &c.
Or was that the general public? I forget now. <yawn>
LOL -- but prithee, sir, say on ..... Humay she be Abedin?
These folks - of the most corrupt party in the United States, from the most politically corrupt city in the United States DARE to imply Jeb Bush is like a Chicago goon? Gimme a break...Idiots.
No need to carry on the ruse any longer. We stole it and we will steal it whenever we chose. The libs aren’t even smart enough to see they were allowed to win in both 2006 and in 2008. People who understand how an economy works, ours or the worlds in general saw this disaster coming a while ago. No political party wants to be in power during times like these, unless of course they are so blinded by their lust for power they cannot help themselves.
The Left will destroy themselves and are off to a great start. When it’s over we will walk in with real Conservatives and return America to it’s former greatness just as Ronald Reagan did.
Six roundheeled Democratic Florida SC justices tried, though -- and were corrected by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Never said she did.
But she was at the very center of the controversy, and that's excuse enough to post a nice pic!
And speaking of pics, here's one of Theresa LePore, designer of the famous butterfly ballot, which fooled all those senile, dyslexic transplanted New Yawk voters into voting for gauleiter Buchannan instead of Earth in the Balance.
