Skip to comments.Should Conservatives Support Rudeness? Why booing Senator Clinton is beneath us.

First of all, to prevent the flamings, I should say that I am a strong conservative, and my number one issue is the life issue and so I am not at all a supporter of the Clintons etc.
That being said, I thought it the height of rudeness for these firemen and policemen to boo and yell at the Senator this weekend. It lacked dignity and class. I thought we conservatives were supposed to stand for such things, or perhaps this is just what we say, but do not practice.
I wonder what Burke et al would have said about this conservative embrace of very questionable manners.
The policemen and firemen should have just done nothing when she appeared on stage, no clapping, no booing, the silence would have expressed the same thing, but in a much more dignified way.
You're just a school yard contrarian. A stupid post on a stupid thread.
YOU are so RIGHT!
- And she is to be categorized as the enemy every bit as much as Osama , her methods are just different. And for what ii is worth, Osammy claims to do this for ALLAH, Hitlery just does it for her own power.
And on the subject of rude, it was rude of her to support actions that got people killed, either through terror or through Fosterization and Clintoncide.
It was rude for her to not boo the President during one of the most important speeches she will ever witness - yes, she should have booed, instead of sitting there like a lying, traitorous, treasonous disapproving bit*h that she is.Then we would know her actual feeling of contempt for Bush success and for the USA
I feel no pity, only contempt for those that pretend such good and intend such evil - prosecute all Clintons,,,,,,,
And it was rude of her to ignore Juanita's accusations of rape!!!!
Yes, a real shame... Hillary was treated so badly at a time when we are supposed to be united, and trying to heal wounds. It ruined the whole show! It cast a big black shadow over the real meaning of coming together to help others. Hillary had as much right to be there as any other politician - she is a New York senator. She's our senator!!! It's unfortunate too that not a single entertainer or politician present came forward to speak out against it. It would have gone a long way to show some real leadership if someone like the mayor (for instance) had said something in Hillary's favor.
The idiots who booed Senator Clinton wish they had daughters who could grow up to be half as intelligent as she is. Most of them were drunken moron sheep. Yes, this includes the firefighters and policeman who are our new "heroes." These people are not representative of what the majority of people think of this fine lady.
She is an asset to our country and it's about time people realized it. There is no excuse for ignorance.
Any comments ...email me personally.

Did you know that the NY Post has had a daily column ever since 9/11 titled, "Today's Funerals", and that the funerals listed are mainly for NY firefighters? These men have been attending most of these funerals.
And you're so shallow as to be concerned with politeness.
You haven't been paying very close attention, have you?
Start with the hypocrisy and family values issue. The Democrats say that it is more damning when Republicans get caught because they run on a platform of family values, meaning Democrats can get away with anything because they don't pass themselves off as being virtuous.
You would think that a Conservative, by definition, would be loathe to make a fuss over something because their personality is, well, conservative. They would tend to not speak ill of others, they would be polite and wait their turn, etc. The Democrats, therefore, make wild accusations, distort the truth, and try to embarrass their opponents at every turn. They know that the conservative would be hard-pressed to retaliate in kind.
So, I think it is damned time that someone booed back. Maybe they'll even be riled up enough to go out and vote next time!
Actually, she disappeared only *after* horning her way into enough photos and videotapings.
As much as she and her elitist, sissified pals would like to believe that these heroes are just ignorant, mouth-breathing, blue-collar grunts who scrape their knuckles along the ground as they walk into the bar to drink some Schlitz, they're smart and perceptive people. They have to be -- they have had to learn to quickly assess situations and make fast decisions, otherwise they could risk lives.
After all that, getting a read on what a phony, condescending bitch she is isn't particularly difficult.
