she's following kerry's path of spinning the vote for war
JOINT RESOLUTION Declaring that a state of war exists between the Imperial Government of Japan and the Government and the people of the United States and making provisions to prosecute the same.
Whereas the Imperial Government of Japan has committed unprovoked acts of war against the Government and the people of the United States of America: Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the state of war between the United States and the Imperial Government of Japan which has thus been thrust upon the United States is hereby formally declared; and the President is hereby authorized and directed to employ the entire naval and military forces of the United States and the resources of the Government to carry on war against the Imperial Government of Japan; and, to bring the conflict to a successful termination, all of the resources of the country are hereby pledged by the Congress of the United States. Approved, December 8, 1941, 4:10 p.m. E.S.T.
A grade school kid could understand it's meaning. Compare it to this Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq If you try to read it you'll just get mad. It was written by lawyers for loop holes. No one required to make a solid commitment to it. She likely laughed and whispered you fools under her breath when she signed the stinking thing. If our troops are to be sent into combat they deserve no less than a full declaration of war. Congress did not make such a declaration and Hillary is using it against the GOP for her gain.
Yeah. "I voted for the war before I wished I hadn't voted for the war."
That and the fact that she truly is a rather dim bulb will sink her. She won't have the sense to not say things that her sheeple base will believe are treason to their socialism. Their inability to think will trap them and her and her inability to think will lead them into it.
From the article:
"In the interview, the former first lady said the Bush administration forced an end to the final round of weapons inspections and invaded prematurely. The administration is responsible for the current status of the war, she said, and for being "grossly misinformed" or for having "twisted the intelligence to satisfy a preconceived version of the facts" before the invasion.
"Either interpretation casts grave doubt on their judgment," she said. "If they were so intent on pursuing military action, a pre-emptive action, which I said at the time I opposed, against Saddam Hussein, then why on earth were they not better prepared and more competent in its execution?"
Bush "grossly misinformed" Hillary so she should get a pass on supporting him with her vote, but in the same conversation, Hillary says grave doubts should be placed on Bush for being "grossly misinformed".
Double-speak or double-standards?
The so-called smartest woman in American didn't know that she was voting for war? Oh, by all means, let's promote her to the presidency.
It's kind of funny how accurate that Saturday Night Live skit from a few weeks ago was.
She can only get more hilarious the further out on that limb she scoots. Wait 'til her Democratick opponents start jabbing her with her flip flopping. Her graceless manner of responding should be a goldmine for comedians.
How could "the smartest woman in the world" be fooled by "the dumbest President ever"? Something is wrong here. /sarc
Shouldn't Her Heinous be in Upstate New York, where Governor Spitzer has declared a National Disaster Emergency? Almost 100 inches of snow has fallen, with no end in sight.
Will they call Queen Hillary on her "Katrina problem?"
Here's your next president America!
Get used to it. This is what you want.
thanks for the list
I'm not sure she still will be in the race when the real campaign starts.
Liar, liar, pant-suit on fire.
