Posted on 06/06/2005 6:57:07 PM PDT by wagglebee
New York Senator Hillary Clinton blasted the press on Monday for going too easy on President Bush, complaining that reporters are letting his administration get away with the worst abuse of power in American history.
"There has never been an administration, I don't believe in our history, more intent upon consolidating and abusing power to further their own agenda," said Mrs. Clinton, whose own administration collected FBI files on opponents and had accusers audited by the IRS.
Addressing a gathering of "Women for Hillary," she urged journalists to go after the Bush White House.
"Where are the investigative reporters today?" she demanded, in quotes picked up by the New York Times. "Why aren't they asking the hard questions?"
Though the press has yet to question her, for instance, about an array of scandals - including reports last month that the Clinton administration's Viagra mandate ended up providing the impotence drug to sex offenders - Mrs. Clinton said she was shocked by the press' pro-Bush bias.
"It's shocking when you see how easily they fold in the media today," she complained. "They don't stand their ground. If they're criticized by the White House, they just fall apart."
Mrs. Clinton repeated her call for the media to get tough with Bush, addressing reporters in absentia:
"I mean, c'mon, toughen up, guys, it's only our Constitution and country at stake. Let's get some spine."

What a horrible headline.
** I URGE THE PRESS TO PROBE HILLARY, THE SLEAZEBAG REPROBATE **
There is enough out there for several life sentences. Bring it on Hitlery!!!
That title has to go.
(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
Women who like to probe bush are gross.
I was just about to post that. Really bad.
Isn't it interesting that Hitlery is calling upon her minions in the leftist press...how obvious Hitlery, you are just no good.
Someone pass her Dan Rather or Newsweek's phone numbers.
Is this satire?
And Helen Thomas said, "Not on my watch."
hill's dyke ran u.s. army tanks over innocent people at waco, and people just ate their dinner watching.
hill's bud commits suicide in the white house parking lot and the body ends up at ft marcy park, and the press did nothing.
hill's husband rapes women and the press ignored them.
and the list goes on and on.
Keep it up Hillbilly---keep insulting the same media that helped keep your husband from losing his presidency---
If, and I say, IF any of these MSM people that she is insulting by accusing them of being "afraid of the Bush Administration", had any professional integrity, they would KNOW that they have gone beyond the call of duty in bashing Bush---
Therefore, they SHOULD be insulted enough to pursue Hillbilly with a taste of her own medicine, and do some investigative reporting on HER...
BTW, no investigative reporting huh? What does she call Rathergate, and all of the stupid commissions to call Bush and Cheney liars re: Iraq...
Hillary Probing Bush Bump
"..."Where are the investigative reporters today?"... "
Evidently at the same place they were when they "found" your subpeoned law records after two years in the White House residence. AWOL. Or maybe at some Kinkos in Texas investigating GWB and the TANG.
"You vote for me and I´ll give you family values. ... I promise you the most ethical administration in the history of our country." -- Bill Clinton
Is she asking for some more Newsweek stories? Is she asking for some more Dan Rather documents? The only way the MSM can try to get to President Bush is with fake stories. Hasn't Hillary figured it out yet?
