Skip to comments.Hillary Becomes A Revisionist . . . Again

At a fund raiser in Connecticut, Hillary Clinton, carpet-bagger senator from New York and re-writer of history, railed against the economic performance of the Bush Administration despite the fact that her husband's administration handed it all of the problems that it is dealing with now along with many more that have been thrust upon it.
While unemployed people from her own party were being escorted out of the venue as they protested to get their jobs back in a state that is influenced heavily by her Democratic Party, she tried to blame the struggling economy on the Bush Administration rather than the ineptitude of her husband's administration to demand ethics and responsibility of the economic community. As everyone knows, or at least should know courtesy of the published facts and dates, all of the corporate crime that took place, especially at the highest levels, was perpetrated under Bill Clinton's watch, not George Bush's. All of the high union demands that have placed such a demand on small corporations around the country were enacted under her husband's regime not George W. Bush's Administration. Her accusations are baseless and she is trying to re-write history.
Considering what the country has gone through, the tragedy of September 11th, the launch of the War on Terror which started in Afghanistan and the removal of the bloody tyrant Saddam Hussein, considering how we have had to weather the corporate scandals of Enron, WorldCom and the entire investment banking community, courtesy of the permissive environment nurtured by the Clinton Administration, I would have to say that George Bush has done an incredible job of keeping things from being amazingly worse, no thanks to Hillary and her narcissistic, power-hungry obstructionism.
Hillary is at the top of her game issuing her signature brand of doublespeak; "People know better than what they hear and what they see". What the hell is that supposed to mean? If what they hear and what they see is the culmination of knowledge what do they know that isn't heard and seen? Their conspiracy theories? Their unfounded mistrust in the government which she railed against when her perjuring husband was in office and which she fosters now? Their belief in aliens? It is statements like these, much like all of the rest of the rhetoric that is in her arsenal of psychobabble that entices the unknowing masses into believing that something is wrong when it is not. It is a trick, a deception, not unlike the propaganda that Saddam Hussein used on the people of Iraq for so many years and she does it all because of her lust for power. She must win at all cost. She is addicted to it. It is her heroin.
She consistently makes claims that many are with her but even the Democratic presidential hopefuls make sure to maintain their distance from her lest they be sucked into the gray void that envelops all those who fall prey to Hillary's lust for power or at the very least tainted as an ally of hers. They know that to be associated with Hillary is either to be swallowed up by her, loosing political identity or to be saddled with the Clinton history, which is political death for anyone but a Clinton of blood. Very rarely does one escape the cloak of destruction that they place over those who have contact with them. Dick Morris escaped and it took him no time at all to turn into a conservative on Hannity & Colmes spouting his amazing dislike for the former redecorator of the White House.
Although her faithful gave her a standing ovation when she angrily (we can only imagine how many times Bill heard that shrill, screaming voice) contended that it was unfair to paint someone as unpatriotic if they disagreed with the Bush Administration, it should be pointed out that the only ones who made this assertion were the Democrats, the media and Hillary herself. The president has even gone out of his way to comfort The Dixie Chicks about their waning record sales stating that they shouldn't let it bother them that some people aren't buying their albums because of what they said in London. He told them via the press that freedom of speech is for everyone and that they can say anything that they want. That is a far cry from calling them unpatriotic.
Hillary was correct about one thing though. When she said, "We are Americans. We have the right to participate and debate in any administration", she was absolutely right. But it is also correct that the American people can disagree with her as they did in 2000 when she wanted Al Gore to be president, as they did during the mid-term elections when they gave the Senate back to the Republicans after traitor Jim Jeffords stole it from its rightful majority elected by the people and as they did regarding the military action in Iraq. The American public disagrees with Hillary Clinton quite a bit, but to listen to her you would never know it. It's just another one of her deceptions.
