Chelsea Clinton Feared Bush Tax Cuts as Twin Towers Fell
Newsmax ^ | 11/9/01 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 11/09/2001 5:48:52 AM PST by truthandlife

As the World Trade Center imploded just blocks from where she stood, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton's first fears included the prospect that President Bush's economic program would stymie any rebuilding effort.

"I was worried that with the tax cut we wouldn't have enough money to repair New York and D.C. and to help the families of the thousands I knew must have died," writes the former first daughter in an up close and personal account of the Sept. 11 disaster set to appear in the December issue of Talk Magazine.

Clinton claims she was all alone in nearby Union Square and unable to reach her parents by phone as the disaster unfolded before her eyes.

"We all thought we were literally going to have fire rain down on us. That we were the next target," the former first daughter reveals.

"I truly thought I was going to die," Clinton claims she was thinking, just before she began worrying about the impact of the Bush economic program.

The disaster has rallied young Clinton's civic-minded spirit, and she uses her Talk Magazine screed to rally her generation to public service. "We need to step up and serve in any way we can," Chelsea urges.

Her own war effort, however, will apparently be limited to following the footsteps of her father, who dodged the Vietnam draft from the safety of England's Oxford University.

News that the Bush tax cuts were among Ms. Clinton's earliest concerns on 9/11 follows on the heels of a speech by ex-President Clinton Wednesday that seemed to blame the terrorist attacks on American slavery and the mistreatment of the Indians.

The Clintons have groomed her well. This is one of the funniest statements I have ever heard. She needs to find another political consultant on this one because I don't think even the Dems buy this story. She is just as looney as Billy boy.

She's a skank just like her mother and in no postion to critique anything that Bush does for many reasons.

The least of which is that her old man was slobbing it with a trashy little whore her age when he should have been hunting down Bin Laden.

THIS is what she was thinking as New York was collapsing around her???? Who does this dumb punk broad think she's kidding?!

As she thinks she's going to die, in the same thought she worries about President Bush's tax cuts?

This is so laughable, phony, shallow, and so utterly Clintonesque (like her mom and dad) I'm so sorry these people have managed to procreate.

Please, stop Chelsea before she breeds!!!

As I hid behind sandbags in Vietnam, I would often say to myself,"I certainly am enjoying my tax-free status!" YA!

Haven't seen anyone else bring this up, but I think this is a real hoot. Chelsea basically bashes her dad when she says, "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." Considering the fact that her dad is now the premier advocate of the "America's arrogance" crowd, I happen to think it's funny as hell that she unwittingly condemed him. Her remarks would have been made and printed long before his speech, and I bet Tina Brown would love to yank back every copy that's been issued. The conservative commentators had GOT to point this

I don't even have a joke here.

I can't believe that the Cliton's were really the first family. Did that really happen? These classless fools were leading our country?!?! Really?

Maybe Chelsea was worried that the tax cut might have a negative impact on all the free perks that she and her parents continue to receive at everybody else's expense?!?

Tina Brown is real proud of publishing Chelsea's writing in her Talk magazine and praises her clarity of mind, but instead of putting Chelsea's picture on the cover she decided to go with a picture of a semi-nude Gwenyth Paltrow. Tina's not as dumb as she sounds.

When called to account, she'll simply say she was persuaded by the "greatest communicator of all time," her daddy. (Can't you see Webb, with forlorn face, reaching to her from between the bars, pleading not to make Bill mad at him again?)

Yeah. Those were my first thoughts too when I turned on the TV the morning of 9/11 and saw those buildings smoking.

Now that she is no longer first kid, and she is making "deep" policy pronouncements, I guess the gloves can come off about her looks. If I were her, I would earn a good marketable skill, just to be safe.

You know, the only way to halfway keep the 'toons and their legions of enablers & worshippers out of our faces is to

1- constantly refute their spin with the truth, and
2- keep making fun of them....

BTW, what happened to the "Chel nearly killed while jogging" story?
Have their push-polls & focus groups convinced them that this version is a better story?

In the first paragraph above, Clinton claims she was ALL ALONE..........and in the second paragraph she changes to WE ALL THOUGHT...........which is it????

It's unusual for a Clinton to use anything but I...Me...My..Mine....

I'm not normally a "me too" guy but dittos from another FReeper.

Only one thing I'd change. I wish the media and references to 9-11 would be "the atrocities of 9-11" or the like. "Tragedy" doesn't cover it.

Good on you for your post lest you forget.

Are there any psychologists on this site? I would like to know the chances of her actually thinking about tax cuts while being a few blocks from the worst terrorist attack we have ever seen in America. I have seen the faces of the people just a few blocks away. They are filled with terror and anquish and pain.

It doesn't seem like human nature to be thinking about tax cuts - unless she really wasn't just a few blocks away. I think she is just using the platform to knock Bush.. like Mother, like Father, like daughter.

Good point. I wasn't trying to lessen the severity of the attack, though, I just write the way I talk. I do agree with you, however, and will keep your advice in mind.

Good point. How can you tell a Clintoon is lying? Its lips are moving. Don't know why people haven't figured that out.

Sigh.

Where are the Clintons in this picture? The former first lady looks like they just plopped her on a horse for a photo op. The guy in front of them looks like he might be a Taliban member..They must have been in Afghanistan :-)

With these guys, it's always about them. With the towers on flame close by, her first thought was about what might happen to her, not what was actually happening right then to other Americans.

What trash!

I am sure Bush's tax cut was on everyone's mind as they turned out into the streets, dazed and confused, and trying to make sense of what had just happened in NYC and DC. Ignorant, ignorant, ignorant. Let her keep writing.....no wonder Mom & Dad kept her hidden from the press.

Does she or does she not have Secret Service protection?

"...we wouldn't have enough money...

What the hell is she talking about...who is WE? It is disgusting that she is thinks she is privy to taxpayer money - what a great example of her generation who thinks the world spins for them. She has lived on the dole her entire life and the only tax she has paid was on her Prada purse. This attack has shown that people will donate/provide what is needed that the government just can't.
