Hillary Blames 9/11 Attack on Bush Tax Cuts

Sunday Nov. 11, 2001; 12:37 p.m. EST Hillary Blames 9/11 Attack on Bush Tax Cuts

New York Sen. Hillary Clinton said Saturday that she blames the Bush administration's tax cut program for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that leveled the World Trade Center and destroyed part of the Pentagon.

"If we hadn't passed the big tax cut last spring, that I believe undermined our fiscal responsibility and our ability to deal with this new threat of terrorism, we wouldn't be in the fix we're in today," Clinton told CNN's Jonathan Karl.

In addition to undermining the country's ability to deal with terrorist attacks, Clinton said the Bush tax cuts worsened the economic downturn in the wake of Sept. 11.

"We had eight years of prosperity because we paid down our debt and we got rid of our deficit," she complained. "We hit a rough spot, and it was turned into a terrible bump because of the attacks of September 11."

Clinton also criticized the economic stimulus package passed last month by the Republican controlled House of Representatives.

"I thought the plan passed by the House of Representatives was a fiscal disaster that would set our country back for years to come," the 2004 presidential hopeful said, adding, "I don't understand how they passed it with a straight face."

Clinton slammed Bush and congressional Republicans after telling CNN that "the fight against terrorism has to be such a united effort."

CNN's Karl did not ask Clinton about her husband's comments Wednesday, where he seemed to blame the 9/11 attacks on 19th Century U.S. slavery and the mistreatment of the American Indian.

She was also not queried on accounts by former White House insiders who say her husband was too preoccupied by his extra-marital liaisons to follow through on repeated promises to hunt down Osama bin Laden.

Hillary is someone who should not be heard

Maybe we should blame the attempt at socialized medicine for the 1993 WTC bombing.
Maybe we should balme the 1993 tax increase on the 1993 WTC bombing.
Maybe we should blame the Lewinsky affair for the embassy bombings in 1998.

Need I go on?

If mr. Clinton was doing something about terrorism, like finishing off Bin Laden & Co after the bombing during Bill's precidency, instead of putting cigars where they don't belong, there wouldn't be the 9/11 attacks. Hellary is just trying to cover things up for Bill.

I seem to remember someone running for Senate in New York who last year achieved the release of several Puerto Rican terrorists who planned to blow up the Statue of Liberty and other symbols nationwide. The convicted terrorists were released early, apparently to get votes from NY's large Puerto Rican community; sent an interesting message and it didn't have much to do with the tax cuts, did it?.

Sorry. When I read it I knew I just had to post it here to share my misery as well. I'm so tired of the media giving her air time on her own terms. How does she get away with it?

This "new" threat of terrorism?

I find it hard to believe that America's smartest woman didn't hear about terrorism before. One would think that Hillary would at least remember the first WTC attack that occured during her co-presidency.

She is SO OUTRAGEOUS I CANNOT STAND IT. Is she STUPID or what. If her impeached husband hadn't dismantled the military, properly responded to terrorist attacks during HER administration, and concentrated on real terrorists instead of gays in the military, we would not have been attacked at all.

Gee, I liked my statement and it isn't anti gay, just that they are really a non entity if they would keep their mouth shut.

"If we hadn't passed the big tax cut last spring...

Yeah, and if the Clinton Administration hadn't pushed for and got the biggest tax increase in 1993, the biggest tax increase in the history of all mankind, then maybe the Republicans wouldn't have had any need to vote for a tax cut to lift the burden imposed by the Clinton's.

I don't know about anyone else, but it seems to me that the more either Clinton sinks into irrelevancy, the more repulsive, ignorant, self-aggrandizing and repugnant they both become.

If I were a lesser man, I'd almost feel sorry for them since both are so arrogantly oblivious to how much they are genuinely reviled and despised by mainstream America.

Their simpering, drooling sycophants in the news media are the only people who seem to be mesmerized and in utter awe of such monumentally disgusting megalomaniacs. It is indeed frightening that such influential people chose to elevate and honor such a cretinous slug like the junior Senator from the State of New York, who, knowing full well how completely and totally worthless she is, chooses to actually blame the current POTUS for the mass murder of thousands of fellow Americans (and New Yorkers).

I wish the rest of the country would wake up and scrape these dog droppings off the bottoms of their collective shoes.

This NewsMax headline appears to be extremely deceptive. When you read her quote, Hillary was not blaming the 9/11 attack on Bush's tax cuts. She was blaming the tax cuts for our supposed inability to deal with terrorist threats. And she thinks the tax cuts have left us in a fiscal mess that was greatly magnified by the 9/11 attack.

That is certainly a plausible (albeit totally incorrect, IMO) argument for her to make. But NewsMax tries to paint her as saying that the attacks would not have happened (or could have been prevented) except for the tax cuts.

Aren't there enough things to criticize Hillary for without blatantly misrepresenting her statements?

Trust me...I can read. You are right to a point, but not entirely. I don't think the headline nor the ensuing article are inflammatory as far as Hitlery is concerned.

She and her buffoonish spouse have done everything possible, without losing the support of their remaining shreeple, to undermine what President Bush has achieved as our leader during these trying past two months. Because of this, I believe we need to be informed of even somewhat veiled attempts to make the current administration look bad and attempts to lessen the impact of the Clintons' treasonous actions and declarations during and after theirs.

Is it too hard for this shithead to understand that the fiscal year runs Oct. through Sept. and the money used for any purpoted dealing with terrorism was already budgeted and so used before the tax cut? If not, this is the kind of stuff everyone should be repeating. The whole world needs to know how stupid this person is.

The point here is that the Democrate LOST the opportunity to BLAME Bush for the economy's faltering after 9/11.

The set up WAS... (and this is WHY she was SO bitter at his speech that she couldn't even bring herself to applaud at the "appropriate" times)

"My husband Bill did it all correctly on the economy, and IIIII, showed him the way, and IIIIIIII, should now be President in 2004!

Oh, they're gonna TRY and pin the recession on Bush, but they've LOST their TRUMP card...

"BIG TIME"...

Ha!

Due to my many visits by the SS I'll keep my remarks brief....

So we're all suprised Hitlery is a ventriliquist? Her lips move but she talks out her A$$. It is a genetic defect of all Clintons.... when not outright lying they are unable to say anything sane.

Next, it will be a vast something wing conspiracy (VSWC) that caused the attacks. This person makes me sick to my stomach and I wonder how 'anyone' in NY would even consider voting for her......
I wonder if she got approval from Eleanor in a recent seance to claim that someone else caused the 9-11 attacks?
This b----h is just simply unbelievable.........

I wish I didn't care what hill & bill have to say, but unfortunately, our enemies eat it up.

I think the terrorists perceptions of the US as weak and divided are a DIRECT RESULT of the Clinton's actions and words, and the media's complicity. And the terrorists' perception led DIRECTLY to the attacks of 9/11.

It could have been the tax-cuts or her campaign getting some terrorists pardons??? I think the pardons were a bigger sign to the terrorists. They are getting the message now that GW is in charge and receiving that 90% approval!!!

Hillary and bill klinton are trying DESPARATELY to place the blame for the terrorist attack on ANYONE, but especially President Bush, so that NO ONE takes the time to look at the red carpet they rolled out for terrorists to infilatrate our nation during their eight year reign of terror.

She and her filthy husband also do NOT want any future terrorists to consider the clintons when they are marking their targets.

To say this when we are in a time of war, to creat this type of turmoil in our nation is so low and so absolutely breathtakingly small and worse, a lie, is about as much evidence as we will EVER need to know that these are bad, bad people.

hillary wants to control the debate. She is ordering the media to take this slant so as to avoid ANY questions regarding the open buffet table she and her husband laid out for the likes of Atta and his crew. And the media, panting at more WH parties if hitlery ever does run for the presidency and win, will do their part-propaganda is their life when they are working on behalf of the sick clintons. She will depend on her icky, panting, shallow, WH party loving friends in the press like the groveling katie couric, the CNN crew en mass, peter jennings and others to make this the DIALOGUE in the media.

She knows how to jump the gun-how to deflect with the best of um. But the REAL DIALOGUE should be, WHEN DID THESE TERRORISTS ARRIVE IN OUR COUNTRY? What INS proceedures permitted their entry? What security procedures at the LOS ALAMOS LAB allowed for infiltration into some of our deepest scientific info? What was the purpose of making over ONE MILLION people AMERICAN CITIZENS without even requiring background checks, much less ANY STUDY on what it means to be an American and what our RULE OF LAW means? Why did she and her husband PARDON terrorists in their last days in office? And on and on and on and on.....

Hillary is a very low person.

Now we know how Chelsea came up with that Bush Tax Cut bit in her STORY about her "big adventure" on 9-11. It was done to promote Hillary's agenda. I am sure that Hillary even insisted the inclusion of that absurd thought in Chelsea's story along with praying to God in thanx that Hillary was Senator. The most hilarious thing about this is the total lack of subtlety involved.
