Hillary Clinton blundered badly today, and the BDS obsessed press blindly announced to the world the blunder, in an naive expectation that Clinton was ‘speaking truth to power’ no doubt.
HILLARY CLINTON, at the beginning of her campaign for the presidency, has called on George Bush to get US forces out of Iraq by the time he leaves the White House.
Senator Clinton said it was the “height of irresponsibility” for the US President to say Iraq would remain a major issue for the next president, and she demanded that he “extricate our country” from Iraq before he left office in January 2009.
This looks and smells of cowardice. A woman has enough trouble convincing voters she has the backbone to face our problems without going spineless and demanding George Bush make life easier for her before she will step up. Condi Rice would not have made such a blunder. She knows the stakes involved, the choice of winning in Iraq now or having to do it later as part of a World War eminating from the Middle East (if we lose Iraq). And Clinton’s hands are as dirty in this as anyone’s since she voted for the Iraq war. Her claim that 20-20 hindsight would have changed her views is stupid. Who wouldn’t think differently with hindsight? Bush would have. But what this tells us is she is not only afraid of inheriting problems, she is easily cowed. Hindsight is wonderful, but it is not an excuse to turn our backs on those we led into this ‘adventure’ and run for the hills. When you go in you go in to complete the mission – nothing less.
So Hillary is afraid of the bug chair and wants Bush to make it all fluffy and comfortable for her before she would ascend to lead us Pathetic.
