Hillary Blames 9/11 Attack on Bush Tax Cuts

New York Senator 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 extramarital liaisons to follow through on repeated promises to hunt down Osama bin Laden.

Apparently, Hillary's ghost writer is also working for Chelsea. She was quoted in the Denver Post last Friday, saying,

"I worried that with the Republican tax cuts, 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."

Because the media allows them to get away with it. Kind of like a child who is not spanked by their parents. They do stupid crap because they know they will not get punished.

She's a twit to be sure, but I don't see anywhere in her comments where she actually blames the ATTACK on the tax cuts. She blames the economic downturn (which is now exacerbated by 9/11) on the tax cuts, but not the terrorism.

WRONG Hillary. The economic downturn was already showing it's head before your husband left office. Democrats leave a mess just in time to blame the Republicans for it, like a child who breaks a vase and points his finger at the child who finds it and says, "Look what he did, Mom!"

Hillary embodies the essence of a low-class bitch! Sorry folks but that's exactly what she is. I still can't believe that NY elected her to office. As a New Yorker, it makes my blood boil. She adds nothing and does not represent me in any way. I sincerely hope she goes away ASAP.. and makes cookies for Bill and Chelesa (by the way, I'd get a food taster, Bill). Her husband, who we in NY are also saddled with, is who really got us in this fix. It's wasn't the economy stupid! It was your liberal, stupid husband killing our intelligence agencies' abilities to do their job while you, Hillary, huged a terrorist's wife!

It was part of the setup.... they could blame the economy on our "Stupid" President, spin, spin, spin, and Hillary would of been "in" in 2004. 911 just showed us who has the "Right Stuff" and there was nothing the press could do to hide it. Just look forward to a lot more selective/biased reporting (BARF).

This post is a hoax, right????

If not, perhaps the very junior Senator from New York/Arkansas/Illinois may be ready for the funny farm.

Fact one:

Well established and entrenched terrorist cells in America, well staffed by persons who were capable of planning and executing multiple attacks on American soil which took place less than 8 (eight) months after the Clintons leave office;

Fact two:

The Cole;

Fact three:

Khobar Towers;

Fact four:

A former President who allowed all of these things to happen on his watch and did nothing to defend the liberty of his fellow citizens!

If these remarks were made, then, truly, "the Emperor (Senator) has no clothes" and should be exposed for her blatant attempts to "spin" a public that is weary of their "Boss Hogg" politics which insult the intelligence of most Americans.

There's an old saw about how "it's hard to keep 'em down on the farm after they've seen Paree." Well, in this case, Mrs. Clinton may find that "it's hard to keep 'em believin' the lies after they've seen a real Prez."

Now THAT statement reflects a realistic cause-and-effect relationship. Al-Qaeda was deeply offended by the probable prosperity that would come to America as a result of the tax cut, so they HAD to cut us down to size. Only because Hillary could not do the job by herself.

That's right, blame the victim because the perpetrator attacked them....

I've never seen Hill speak with a "straight" face. She has the blank, bug-eyed look of a professional liar who's studied all the telltale facial signals liars give away and works hard not to show them.

X42, by his lack of retaliation for each of those incidents, only emboldened the terrorists. With little to fear from the US, the terrorists finally devised a plan to attack within the US to get a reaction. They didn't attack the US because we cut taxes. What a maroon!

The liberals and the Democrats are as much an enemy of the United States as the Islamic terrorist America hating scum. Hillary Clinton is a sickeningly loathsome, filthy, lying, crooked, thieving, bitch that should be sitting behind bars if not hanged for treason along with her "husband", the cheap, greasy, tin-plated, cathouse maggot. You New Yorkers know what needs to be done about that dirty bitch and every other egg sucking liberal dirtbag whatever party label he or she is wearing.

"Is there someway we can freep this broom flying witch?"

She got "elected" without ever taking a tough question. She got "elected" by appearing in only well-screened, scripted events. The one (and perhaps only) time she ever recently appeared in a public forum (the VH1 awards) she got roundly and soundly BOO'ed. The "smartest woman in the world" surely won't allow that to happen again.

So, the short answer to your question is "no".

Gotta agree with her, had not these illegal (terrorists) aliens , who probably voted for her , recieved a refund check , due to her husbands work to subvert the constitution etc etc then they would not have gotten the 300 $ return to by airline tickets and box cutters .........I'm pretty sure she needs to bring this up at re-election time :o)

Is there any way for New Yorkers to "unelect" this woman?. I'm sure a lot of them would like to.

Heaven knows she's committed enough crimes, told enough lies, hidden away enough cash, and offended enough people.

Can't voters simply say, "We made a mistake. This is not the person we want to represent us. Let's get rid of her and put in someone who really cares about New York"--or are they stuck with her for another 5 years?

There's gotta be a way for New Yorkers to correct this awful mistake. They've been through enough already.

I guess Hitlery feels emboldened by the recent demorat wins and feels its time to counter attack because of Dubya's popularity. I just hope that even democrats have even the slightest bit of logic to see that she is a scheming, arrogant, elitest, dirtbag. This has got to be the most insane comment to ever come out of her.
