Chelsea Clinton- The "Detriments of the Bush Tax Cut ," & Reaction to the WTC Attacks
Washington Post ^ | 11/9/01

Posted on 11/09/2001 5:46:25 AM PST by 11th Earl of Mar

Edited on 09/03/2002 4:49:31 AM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

"I am still unsure about what Humpty Dumpty represented to me on that day, because I do not subscribe to -- and I even resent -- the theory that America's arrogance, even indirectly, led to the attacks. It just seemed as though the world were falling down, like Humpty Dumpty."

"Once we stopped running, I started praying. I prayed for my country and my city. I stopped berating the tax cut and started praying that the president would rise to lead us.

George W. Bush WAS leading before the attacks. You just didn't know it.

According to her Daddy, she is fair game. Remember she may have had ancestors who did wrong to the ancestors of the men flying the planes. Therefore, she deserved to be terrified.

She's been so isolated and protected, she's living in a nursery-rhyme world.

In general I am an incredibly self-reliant person

With parents that self-absorbed I'd guess you'd have to be, Chelsea.

Actually, taking into account that she's been immersed in evil since infancy, she seems like a nice girl.

Yes, Chelsea should apologize for her father's acts while president. And she should pay us reparations.

The great thing is, now that the US has suffered at their hands, we can now hold all moslem responsible for the next 10,000 or so years, and have endless wars with them to wipe them out. And who could blame us.

That of course is the Clinton doctrine, not mine.

. . . I was expounding on the detriments of the Bush tax cut . . .

Does she 'expound' like her mother - at you - instead of engaging in an exchange of conversation?

She sounds like a boring date.

Doesn't she realize that she sounds like a complete idiot? Whatever happened to the story that she was jogging around the WTC or WFC? Could she be the anti-christ? No doubt it...shes too stupid. But the spawn of Hitlery and Klintoon is pretty scary.

F**K her. I wonder where she got the Humpty Dumpty metaphor. The most privileged, spoiled child speaks...and it ain't pretty. So totally self-absorbed, like her parents. Me, me, me. And by the way, what kind of brilliant person runs TOWARDS the fire? I hate this family with ever fiber of my being.

Cheer up Chelsea. With Bush preoccupied with the war, he won't have time to encourage conservatives to chain blacks to the back of pick-up trucks and drag them to their death. The Bush plot to organize howling hordes of Christian extremists to murder homosexuals has been put on hold also.

"I realized that I had become a New Yorker. I expect now that I'll always be one..." Chelsea, No you arent and you will never be! When you leave take momma and daddy with ya....You arent wanted here and neither are they, Your momma won because Rudy took himself out of the election and Poppa hangs in Harlem because they are the only ones who still believe his crap. Chels, where's the best place to get a bagel in the AM?? What blocks make up little Italy? What's an egg cream?? Who was the first manager of the Mets?? What streets make up Hell's Kitchen? or chinatown or the village?? ever been to Stuyvesant town?? or seen a game at the Rucker?? Taken a walk on the Brooklyn Promenade?? been to San Gennaro?? How bout the St. Patrick's day parade that mommy was afraid to march in? What subway line do you take from Manhattan to Yankee Stadium or what number is the line out to Shea? See you little witch, there is more to NYC than just Katie and Matt, Rosie and Broadway and all the artsy fartsy pinkie up parties on the upper west side! New York has a soul that you and your ilk will never understand, we are tough and ballsy, whiners are not allowed..You ever been elbowed out of the way for a cab by an old lady?? See its your mommy and daddy and people like them that made it impossible for my kids to grow up there the way I did, because they let the skels run the city. So we had to leave and go north!! So shut up and get out..You stooooooonad!! Fughhhhheaboutit!!!!!!

A most excellent rant, and one that gave me, a life-long Hoosier, a real feeling for New York City. Thanks!

Thank God the Clintons are not as prolific as the Kennedys. One festering family of left-wing inebriated, perverted Democratic demogogues is more than enough. I guess just one Chelsea to deal with is a bargain.

I have a better question for Chelsea, and I want the answer so bad I'm willing to buy TALK magazine to see if the answer is in there: Since you wuz staying in an apartment near Union Square, Chelsea, what on earth were you doing near Grand Central in the middle of a disaster? Why not just GO HOME after "wandering" down toward the WTC? Were you LOST, you faux New Yorker? Or did you just have a hankering for lunch at the Oyster Bar?

She "stared senselessly at the television," then headed downtown, where she heard a deafening rumble..."I was expounding on the detriments of Bush's tax cut as we approached Grand Central Terminal and were met with hordes of people running out of the station," some crying "Fire!" and "Bomb!"

So after seeing the the first tower in flames on TV she was headed downtown "expounding on the detriments of Bush's tax cut"? I didn't start expounding on the detriments of Bush's tax cut until the second tower was hit. She really is a genius!

Go to your local supermarket checkout line and take a look at the Star Magazine article about Hillary not divorcing Bill. In the article Hillary talks about Chelsea jogging and how her life was saved by stopping for coffee at Starbucks. LOL! The new version comes out while the old version is still on the newsstands!!!

I wonder if the thought crossed her mind, "Thank God American is not now paying for my mother's health care plan. How could we afford to help New York if we were?"

Yup, you've got that right. She's no longer *just the prop* holding hands with Monica's boyfriend for the cameras.

" . . expounding on the detriments of Bush's tax cut . . ." - Sure, Chels, that was everyone's first thought when those towers fell.

I'm reading the Post article and getting sick all over again. Don't these idiots have access to freaking MAPS? Union Square is about 2 1/2 MILES from the WTC. Yet they say it was "close". Yes, she was "closer" to the World Trade Center than her daddy's office in Harlem.

If she didn't want to take a chance on "fire raining down on her head", she should have gone straight back to that Union Square apartment instead of walking another couple of miles north to Grand Central. Was she trying to get Metro-North to Chappaqua? This whole story smells, and yet Tina Brown-nose is "blown away" by its "honesty".

You are making her another $esse $ackson. Farrakhan (sp?) or Sharpton by dwelling on what she says and/or does.

Now that you are out there in public spouting off, it's "President Bush," to you, you little military-hating *itch. I'll go find an anecdote about her run in with a member of the military.

Ah youth, I remember when I was a young lass of 21, strolling Fifth Avenue, dreaming when I would pass Tiffany's, and bitching about tax cuts screwing the poor with my girlfriends.

Oh how I miss those happy days.

This is sad and frightening. She has just seen thousands of people die in a terrorist attack, and all she can think about is partisan politics.
