Note to Hillary: In the future, read the legislation you're voting for so you won't look like such a moron when you try and claim you were "tricked"./
That has to be the most imbecilic logic to begin any position statement with.
These colors cut and run
bumper-sticker for her car.
She would not have any issue at all had the GOP majority done an actual Declaration of War instead of a U.N. spewage laden congressional resolution. That's what the GOP gets for trying to be the appeasers of world opinion. They should have either fully declared it and made the unconditional commitment or war or stayed home. Three previous wars & the same stupid intentional mistake and our troops get caught in the middle.
No, this isn't spin - this is falling, falling, faaallllliiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng
I'm not sure she still will be in the race when the real campaign starts.
Shes lucky what happened to that evil SOB Saddam isn't in store for her as well.
If the POTUS was Putin instead of Bush she and her comrades wouldn't be around for very long.
That's just an out and out lie.
Amazing how Clinton's find it so damn easy to tell lies.. pathological and really scary.
1. On September 12, 2001, Senatrix Clinton spoke from the well of the Senate: "...We will also stand united behind our President as he and his advisors plan the necessary actions to demonstrate America's resolve and commitment. Not only to seek out an exact punishment on the perpetrators, but to make very clear that not only those who harbor terrorists, but those who in any way aid or comfort them whatsoever will now face the wrath of our country. And I hope that that message has gotten through to everywhere it needs to be heard. You are either with America in our time of need or you are not..."
2. On October 10, 2002, Clinton spoke to the Senate in favor of a use-of-force resolution authorizing the invasion of Iraq, saying: "The facts that have brought us to this fateful vote are not in doubt.
3. On December 15, 2003, when it was clear there were no large stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Clintons support was unwavering. "I was one who supported giving President Bush the authority, if necessary, to use force, she told the Council on Foreign Relations. "We have no option but to stay involved and committed.
4. On April 20, 2004, Clinton told CNNs Larry King that she did not "regret giving the president the authority, noting that Saddam Hussein "had been a real problem for the international community for more than a decade.
5. In October 2005, amid growing anti-war sentiment, Clinton still told the Village Voice: "I dont believe its smart to set a date for withdrawal . . . I dont think its the right time to withdraw.
6. By November 2005, Hillary was softening her stance, saying in a letter to constituents: "If Congress had been asked [to authorize the war], based on what we know now, we never would have agreed.
7. On December 18, 2006, Clinton went even further, saying on the "Today show: "I certainly wouldnt have voted that way.
8. On January 13 of this year, Clinton spoke from Baghdad about President Bushs call for a troop surge: "I dont know that the American people or the Congress at this point believe this mission can work.
9. On January 17, Clinton called for a cap on the number of U.S. troops in Iraq, and suggested withholding funds for the Iraqi government.
10. Finally, on January 27, Clinton hit the campaign trail in Iowa and demanded that the president "extricate our country from this before he leaves office.
It's '04 all over again.
Gosh. She's spinning as hard as Giuliani and Romney.
Now that she is acting and sounding like a Democrat from the past, I wonder when she will start to look like John Kerry. I also wonder when the Obama-worshippers in the media start to hammer on this change of rhetoric from Senator Clinton.
They went with Kerry, they will go with her. She will outspend anyone and sick her clintonistas on anyone that gets in her way, including the other candidates.
Yes, if we'd just waited a tad longer, Saddam would have converted to Secular Humanism, renounced war and entered a monastery.
If only we knew now what Her Heinous knew then...
These are the words of someone who is not even capable of following much less leading. Which she proved in spades with Hillary Care while her own husband was in the Oval Office. She couldn't push it forward and she wouldn't let anyone help her drag it along.
It depends on what the meaning of "war" is; along with the meaning of every other word I've ever used in my life.
