Skip to comments.Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton Attacks Bush
Posted on 07/11/2005 2:45:07 AM PDT by bookworm100
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton went on the attack against President Bush in a speech Sunday, accusing him of damaging the economy by overspending while giving tax cuts to the rich.
The Democrat from New York also accused Bush of depriving U.S. soldiers of equipment needed to fight the war in Iraq and cutting funding for scientific research.
``I sometimes feel that Alfred E. Neuman is in charge in Washington,'' Clinton said referring to the freckle-faced Mad magazine character. She drew a laugh from crowd when she described Bush's attitude toward tough issues with Neuman's catchphrase: ``What, me worry?''
Clinton, who was speaking during the inaugural Aspen Ideas Festival, organized by the Aspen Institute nonpartisan think tank, didn't mention the presidential election in 2008.
She said the United States should remain in Iraq until peace can be maintained by the Iraqi people, saying the mission was part of the ``long struggle against terrorism'' by the U.S.
``The threat of terrorism is as close as our daily commute,'' said Clinton, adding that people around the world admired the ``famous resilience'' of the British in the wake of last week's terrorist attacks.
When it came to the economy, Clinton accused the Bush administration of focusing on helping the wealthy while hurting the middle class, which she said has been key to Americans' success and stability.
She said the middle class is now being threatened by an ailing economy caused by the growing national debt, growing health care costs, the loss of pensions and the loss of manufacturing diversity. Clinton also said the U.S. needs to focus on exploring alternative energy sources to become less reliant on oil.
No mention of her partner-in-crime. He was supposed to accompany her to the [Lack of] Ideas Festival.
Or a stubborn yeast infection.
OK, Ms. Clinton. You have a wonderful opportunity to show your leadership potential as a member of the Senate. You haven't done squat since you were elected. When will you start? When will you show the American people that you are something more than a do-nothing complainer?
Hello? Click, click. Hello? Hello?
I don't know why she's complaining. I'm sure she got a tax cut.
It's amazing how immature one can be and still be considered intelligent...by some.
But dang! Hillary sure won't address how her minion Democrats in CA are ruining the state.. And plan to not only gut Prop 13; but to implement Her Failed Healthcare Plan of Universal Health. Yep. She's going to try for a run at President 2008. That's when CA Dems are planning their U-Health Plan in multi-states. Platform to carry Hillary.

And yes, that picture is the one of Hill kissing Suha Arafat ( "wife" of The Littlest Terrorist ) after Suha had accused the Israelis of poisoning Palestinian children...
OK, enough whining about Hillary. Conservatives should get off the dime NOW. Do what I did - buy the Klein book, read it (your blood will run cold) and then give it to a friend who will promise to read it and then pass it on to another friend, who will read it and pass it on etc. This woman is a great threat to the America we love, and she MUST BE STOPPED. She comes into the game with a guaranteed 43% approval rating. Conservatives - and Libertarians, for that matter - get energized!! Mobilize the VRWC!!
Come on now, surely, because of her absolute hatred of tax cut's for the rich...she refused HER tax cut.( end sarcasm )
That stood out like a sore thumb, didn't it?
She's sore and she's running...
Clinton's old woman is a honking goose and like a goose has nothing to say that is new or worth listening to!
The same old "pissing and moaning"!
Get a life vanish and give this country a break!
That stood out like a sore thumb, didn't it?
Whenever I see "think tank," I envision some wide, pimpled Democrat rear perched on a toilet hatching more liberal philosophies...
From what, carpet burns?
Karl Rove says liberals are weak on terrorism and national defense.
He is right.
It works! If enough of us DO SOMETHING, instead of whining on bulletin boards, action will happen. And thank you for your service to our country, whether you're active, retired, or a dependent ..... all are priceless.
