Posted on 09/10/2016 6:22:06 PM PDT by 11th_VA
I reluctantly watched George W. Bushs post-9/11 speech before a joint session of Congress. I say reluctantly because I cannot abide the posturing, pomposity, and wrong-headedness that are the usual ingredients of political speeches even speeches that follow events like the attack on Pearl Harbor and the atrocities of 9/11. (Churchills rallying speeches during World War II are another thing: masterworks of inspirational oratory.)
In any event, Bushs performance was creditable (thanks, no doubt, to his writers and ample preparation). And I found nothing to fault in what he said, inasmuch as I am a libertarian hawk. The vigorous and evidently sincere applause that greeted Bushs applause lines applause that arose from Democrats as well as Republicans seemed to confirm the prevailing view that Americans (or their political leaders, at least) were defiantly united in the fight against terrorism.
But I noted then, and have never forgotten, the behavior of Hillary Clinton, who was a freshman senator. Some of Clintons behavior is captured in this video clip, from 11:44 to 12: 14.
The segment opens with Bush saying: Terror unanswered can not only bring down buildings, it can threaten the stability of legitimate governments. And you know what, were not going to allow it.
The assemblage then rises in applause. The camera zooms to Hillary Clinton, who seems aware of it and stares at the camera briefly while applauding tepidly. (Compare her self-centered reaction with that of the noted camera-hog Chuck Shumer, who is standing next to her, applauding vigorously, and looking toward Bush.) Clinton then turns away from the camera and, while still applauding tepidly, directs a smirk at someone near her. I also noted but cannot readily find on video similar behavior, include eye-rolling, at the conclusion of Bushs speech...

Hillary couldn’t bring herself to give a damn about anybody else. That’s the real Hillary.
She rolls her eyes ... Trump should use that in a commercial
Lefties...always projecting their own base tendencies and shortcomings.
In February of 2002 she took to the floor of Congress and made the accusation “Bush knew” (in advance about the 9-11 WTC plot).
Junk this nasty ideologue.
I was bullied. Someone said I was DEPLORABLE just because I didn’t agree with her. Wah, wah.
Did you two take time to parse the tape and see Hillary’s reaction to the speech? It’s pretty bad ...
Let’s face it, she is the epitome of the ‘C’ word and any adjective you ascribe to it, lying, crooked, corrupt, self-serving, elitist, disgusting, they all pale by comparison to what she really is...
A complete and total rhymes with punt...
didn’t she make a snide comment after 9-11 towards Bush and Cheney asking “what did they know? when did they know it?” and Cheney told her to STFU???
i remember this but can’t find it anywhere...
see my post #10...is there a link of this anywhere??
C U Next Tuesday.
What gets lost in all of this talk about NYC, there were 2 other hijacked planes that resulted in dead Americans AND another detail that keeps getting lost this week, it’s the anniversary of the BENGHAZI TERRORIST STRIKE on our embassy!
We STILL do not know where the POTUS (or POS for short) was that night. There was more backlash against an off duty captain of an oil tanker being drunk (*) than there ever has been regarding jug-ears’ dereliction of duty.
“Captain Joseph Hazelwood, who was widely reported to have been drinking heavily that night, was not at the controls when the ship struck the reef. However, as the senior officer, he was in command of the ship even though he was asleep in his bunk.”
This is interesting - also, a thread a few days ago mentioned an interview with HRC where she admits she believes in “spirits,” ... not GOD, but “spirits” ... and when a person refrains from GOD but instead follows spirits, who really knows where these spirits are from? They are from satan ....
Judge Pirro just a little while ago:
I remember that. Schumer was actually human. Maybe 911 was a little too close to home for him. As for Hillary, she was grudgingly going through the motions, looking like some snot brat kid “do I have to sit through this”.
Thank you. A Must Watch!!!!!!
Hillary Clinton & Chris Dodd Question What Bush Knew About 9/11 - 5/16/2002
On the floor of the Senate.
What else we don’t’ know is what POTUS said at a fundraising event in California...LA Times is still sitting on the tapes.
I hope that tape will see the light of day sometime before I leave this earth.
