HILLARY HAWKS UP WAR TALK
New York Post ^ | 3/03/03 | DEBORAH ORIN

Edited on 05/26/2004 5:12:25 PM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

March 3, 2003 -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton "fully supports" President Bush's Iraq policy, her office said last night - on the eve of her visit today to an upstate arsenal that makes military hardware like mortars and howitzers for U.S. troops.

This is good news...for now. Perhaps we can gain a measure of support from the dim witted feminists now.

United we stand, divided we fall.

You are right,of course, when we go to war this nation needs to pull together.I worry about those whose motives I question. Where will they be when the next Highway of Death video is shown? War is hell. Will they lose their resolve?

I wonder what her hollywood friends will say about this?

Does she want war to benifit her oil rich friends?

There are a lot of questions the media needs to be asking her.

One thing this proves is that SHE IS NOT GOING TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT! Most Democreeps don't want any of the Senators being for the war. That would be a mark against her if she ran and she knows that.

Even though she's not running(HA!), HILLARY! has just joined Lieberman and Graham as “moderate” democratic candidates.

Edwards is spending too much time attacking Bush and thinks it's 2004 already.

Kerry bashed Bush on Afgahnistan and is keen on wind-power and wind-up cars for the masses.

Dean is a socialist, anti-war cheerio from... VERMONT! Gephardt is... Gephardt.

Sharpton is a smart and cunning racist. Mosely-Braun asks, “What am I doing here?”.

But HILLARY!... God pound her, plans to be in the game while the stooges duke it out in the primaries.

"Sen. Clinton fully supports the steps the president has taken to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction,"

However, during Mrs. Clinton's reign as co-president, she couldn't have cared less about WMD or terrorism. She's reinventing herself to suit her ambitions again.

No, No, No! Hitlery doesn't have oil rich friends. Only the evil Bushes and other Republicans have oil rich friends. You obviously haven't been reading the other posts on here where the anti-Bushes continually point these details out.

We would have been better off with the clintons or the gores under the present circumstances. The economy would be in good shape, we would have apologized to the entire muslim world, and life would be going on.

If you notice, the beast never speaks for herself. Always does it through a spokesperson. Any personal interview is always in a controlled environment (Larry King, Tim Russert, etc). Has she ever been in a debate where the questions were not canned? If I were the interviewer, the first questions that I would ask her, to set the base for 'harder questions to come', would be, "What are your thoughts about the rape allegation against your husband AND what are you thoughts about his many extra-marital affairs?".... Then I would begin asking more serious questions....

SHE IS NOT GOING TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT!

Right... she's too smart for that. HILLARY!, will let the other clowns slander each other in the 2004 primaries, dropping out 1 by 1.

She will also become more hawkish during the primaries and lamenting on education and the economy.

In the stretch, it'll be Kerry and Lieberman... both trailing Bush by double digits... but HILLARYS! numbers show her to be a tougher challenge to Bush.

Fill in the blanks.

"Sen. Clinton fully supports the steps the president has taken to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction," said Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines.

That puts Clinton (D-N.Y.) squarely at odds with a majority in her own party, where one recent poll found an Iraq attack is opposed by 66 percent of "core Democrats."

Anyone misreading this as support for an attack as Deborah Orin has (who should know better), needs be whacked over the head with a pile of "lost/misplaced/magically reappeared" billing records. Fully supporting unnamed steps means diddly. Are those steps working to get UN support? Are those steps taking out anti-aircraft positions in the no-fly zones? Are those steps stating that destroying Al Samoud missiles is a ploy and instead, we'll be doing the disarming?

Now today, she'll go to this arsenal, take credit for some sort of federal largesse coming their way, make the same type vague remarks about supporting what is going on, have the locals stand behind her for a photo op, including those who claim they hate her but turn out because the largesse speaks louder than principle, and the spin will be that she's pro-attack, pro-military and Boobus New Yorkus and Boobus America will swoon a little more for her.

Hopefully she won't be too close to Albany because I don't have enough duct tape to keep her vileness from seeping into my place.

This leftist bag of sh*t knows she has to "remake" her image if she is to have any future chance of winning a presidential run. Unfortunately for the wife of the serial sexual predator, rapist, and sink emperor, all the lipstick in the world won't make the lying pig she is look any better. Once a jack-booted lefty, always a jack-booted lefty.

"...One thing this proves is that SHE IS NOT GOING TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT! Most Democreeps don't want any of the Senators being for the war. That would be a mark against her if she ran and she knows that...."

May I respectfully say that you could not be more wrong. Our dear Hillary! is one ever coniving cookie. Her instincts tell her that she should delay her run for the presidency until 2008. But she is ever watching the scene to spy an opening that she might be able to exploit at an earlier date.

At the moment, she sees the race for her party's presidential nomination dissolving before her eyes. The putative front runner, John Kerry, is not gaining traction. The field is sprouting not one but two Sister Soulja's to skewer in the form of Howard Dean and the Rev. Sharpton. And, the one candidate from the Party's "center" is tracking left: Joe Lieberman. There is a HUGE opportunity to enter the race from the right here.

It is easy to forget that the Hildebeast's husband was the candidate of the Democratic right in 1992. It seems stunning, but it was a brilliant tactic. The Clintons had spent 20 years developing and husbanding their Left Wing bone fides. Hillary devoted her college years at Wellesley and at Yale to cultivating Communist and hard left contacts (who could help her in the short run) and promising stars of the next generation of left wing leaders who would help her in the long run. Bill's Left Wing political qualifications are well known.

With their Left Wing base solidly laid, they were well positioned to run publicly to the right (as the standard bearers of the Democratic Leadership Counsel) while winking at their Left Wing friends to let them know that it was all for show. It worked like a charm.

It is fascinating to recall that as president, WJC was given credit by many conservatives for having pulled his party to the right (support for a balanced budget, free trade, et al). If this were true, would Hillary now have this historic opportunity to run as the Democratic moderate only two years after she vacated the West Wing?

Hillary is a conservative in one sense. She is conservative in as much as she prefers to stick to the TRIED AND TRUE. She's no slick swashbuckling, risk taker like her "husband." The run to the right, wink at the left strategy worked before, you can bet she'll use it again.

May God be with us.

Hillary doesn't have much choice but to reinforce the "party" statement of "regime change" which she stated in a "Russert" interview a few months back.

Not only that, it switches the viewer from the Estrada nomination to "todays big news" and her "Armed Services Committee".

Imagine her sitting on that committee, with men with "brains" so far beyond her, it's pathetic. She must feel like an ordinary first grader trying to grasp the "minds" of MIT Professors.

"...Hillary doesn't have much choice but to reinforce the "party" statement of "regime change" which she stated in a "Russert" interview a few months back...."

One of the really amazing things about Hillary! is that she feels no compelling need to be consistent. She floats trial balloons like a child blows bubbles. If this trial balloon finds traction, she'll test it to see if it has legs.

Interestingly, I don't think the Democrat Party has one official position on Iraq. They are still searching for a way to oppose the war without actually saying that they oppose it. The latest iteration of this is their line about the "shocking" cost of the war. Hillary may have concluded that this tack won't work and she's decided to tack to a pro-war stance for the time being.

What will come out next is probably: Well, if we're going to have a war, we'll need more money in New York since we will probably be retaliated against.

One of the cuties she pulled a couple of weeks back was to ask Powell if New York was going to get the same protection as the Capitol.

Powell told her "we don't tell terrorists what we are going to do".

Regime change was the consistent message of the Dem party when they held (abused) the Whitehouse.

Oh I don't know about 2008 but she definitely won't run in 2004! I know by lurking around the democreep chat rooms the presidential candidates stack up with the democreeps and Hillary is not a viable candidate for them. Apparently they don't want someone with too much baggage that she will be scrutinized in everything she does. They also are very angry at her and all the democreeps who voted for Bush's war resolution. The one they really like now is DEAN!! Kerry is about 50/50 with the democreeps. Lieberman is a joke as far as they are concerned. As far as 2008 - we will see - you could be right about her running. Right now Hillary has to build up power and the only way she can do that is to keep her Senate Seat and work on that.

Oh she wants the presidency badly. And the Dems will give it to her if she doesn't wait too long. i see a lot a similarity between her and Teddy Kennedy (until Chappaquidic) Neither had done anything to deserve it but both were annointed due to previous glorys.

I can see her running in 2008 when Bush is out of the picture. She knows she will lose against Bush. I don't think Hillary likes to lose - she is too cold and calculating for that. 2008 will be good because we may not have a good candidate like Bush to run for office. I don't see anyone right now that would seem like a likely choice for the Repubs in 2008.

"...I know by lurking around the democreep chat rooms the presidential candidates stack up with the democreeps and Hillary is not a viable candidate for them...."

God bless you for spending time with the other side, sparing the rest of us weaker souls.

I am not surprised to hear that HRC is not popular among the activist Dems who visit chat rooms. No one would hate an opportunist and poseur like Hillary more than committed ideologues of her own political stripe.

In her mind, however, she is very popular among the useful idiots out in soccer mom territory. Popular enough that she could easily win a closely contested primary contest with a crowded field.

She probably won't run in 2004, but you can bet she is keeping all her options open, testing various messages to see which has traction, working her network to stock pile markers to be called in at some opportune time.

And, I can assure you she does not fear Howard Dean. He is not a serious candidate, but a perfect foil. When his poll numbers get into the low teens he will start to make the on-the-payroll professionals in Washington nervous. They will be the first to sense their comfortable sincures in danger.

That's just the moment that they may start begging HRC to enter the race to save the party from the McGoverniks. Do you remember the ABM? No not the missile system but the Anybody But McGovern Movement. It was big in 1972, when I was a pup HS sophmore supporting my beloved loser in his crusade for acid, amnesty and abortion. The Dem pros won't wait until its too late this time.

LOL - Actually I only go there to see what the enemy is up to. Especially when it comes to 2004. There are so many candidates and I really want to see who the favorite will be. Surprisingly, Hillary is never mentioned at all! Dean seems to be the favorite. I just want to know who Bush will be up against! One of my favorite teachers in High School used to say this over and over again "Fore-warned is Fore-armed" and I always went by that. Know your enemy and how he thinks. As much as I am sickened by their websites and chat rooms and will never post anything on Free Republic, I think it is important that we know what they are thinking and doing in order to be well prepared!

She's running in 2004. She is carefully setting things up. Let the other run in a disorganized way and slip in at the last moment. Why would they think she wouldn't stab them in back. This is very scary. With illegal voting, she could very much win the primary.
