Hillary the Republican?

hillarybush.jpgIf Hillary Clinton moves any further to the right, she’ll be giving Karl Rove a lapdance. Yesterday we posted that Rupert Murdoch is going to host a fundraiser for Hillary the Hawk. Now she has this to say about Dubya:

“He is someone who has a lot of charm and charisma, and I think in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, I was very grateful to him for his support for New York,” Clinton said Tuesday night during a talk at the National Archives about her life in politics.

Clinton, a potential presidential candidate in 2008, said that despite their “many disagreements about many, many issues,” she has always had a good personal relationship with the president.

“He’s been very willing to talk. He’s been affable. He’s been good company,” said Clinton, D-N.Y.

I’m sure the anti-war members of the Democratic Party will conveniently forget this by Election Day 2008.

    It’s possible to like a person and hate what they do for a living. (Or something along those lines)

    Im sure the anti-war types were hoping more for the “Bush lied…” meme but personally, when I read Hillary saying things like this, her statements lift her out of the gutter where the rest of her liberal ilk are stuck.

    It surprises me that anyone believes Hillary on anything. She must be serving up some pretty stout Kool-Aid.

    I’d almost rather have a Fidel Castro than Hillary; the end result would be almost indistinguishable. But then, we’re pretty much doomed no matter which Brand X figurehead wins in 2008.

    No doubt, Keith. I’ve been telling people since about September 2004 that Hillary would be jumping HARD HARD HARD to the right and to watch for it. This is no surprise, although a few months ago it looked like it would be a bit sooner. One thing to notice about our masters is that there is a lot of negotiation going on behind the scenes isn’t there. Our next “great leader” will be anointed, not selected.

    The hilarious part about it is that New Yorkers are dumb enough to let her by to the Senate in the first place and Americans truly are dumb enough to elect her. There is little to no fraud necessary, that’s only a backup. In the words of my former neighbor, Hillary would eat a hot, steaming plate of (feces) if she thought it would make her President.

    Also, I can’t wait to laugh at sycophantic Democrats kissing her ass and changing their position of the war. George Clooney already wants a war in Darfur. Iraq wasn’t good enough for him, but Darfur is.

    A Hillary Clinton lap dance… (shudder!) very disturbing imagery there.

    There really isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Democrats and Republicans aside from how to pay for the favors they doll out to their favored constituents. Just look at State and local politics. Here in California, both parties have done their best to gerrymander the districts so that everyone now in office has a safe seat. It’s not about serving constituents or doing good, it’s about staying in power and enjoying the perks.

    As for George Clooney (and, hell, George Bush for that matter), if they’re so concerned about Iran and Darfur, then they should raise their own private regiment and send them overseas instead of asking the sons of people who make 1% of what they do to die in their pet battles.

    Hillary as prez would be the last straw for me. I’ve been saying for a while now that if she got elected I’d move out of this country as quickly as possible.

    Daniel, Alec Baldwin said the same thing about Bush getting re-elected, but he’s still here.

    Talk about Stockholm Syndrome.

    The right wing News Corp empire has beaten Hillary Clinton over the head with a brick for twenty years and she responds by dropping her pants, bending over and grabbing her ankles for Rupert Murdoch and George W. Bush. Hillary is pathologically pathetic. Sad to watch.

    The worst part of Hillary’s run to the right is that she is laundering money from Rupert Murdoch to the PA senate campaign of Bob “I’m a pro-life Democrat” Casey. http://leftindependent.blogspot.com/2006/05/pas-bob-casey-im-pro-life-democrat.html

    This is just more proof that the “right” vs. “left” political system is phoney. Clinton or Bush, it makes no different because they are both the same.

  • Leroy

    I hope Russ Feingold runs for the Democratic nomination. According to this HoT article Feingold is the most libertarian Senator right now.

    Hillary Clinton is just as corrupt and pro-establishment as Bush. I can only hope she alienates the left enough so that she loses in the primaries.

    After reading Richard Poe’s “Hillary’s Secret War”, and looking at how Google and Microsoft have been conspirators with the ChiComs on their Internet suppression, it all starts to come together. Add in McCain/Feingold’s Magic First Amendment Eraser, and one wonders how long it will be until bloggers are doing time in re-education camps right alongside talk radio hosts…
