Hillary Clinton … Yes I Voted For the War .. Now Must have US Retreat in Iraq in 90 Days …
Hillary Clinton … I voted for the Iraq war before I voted against it … sounds familiar.
The ‘smartest woman in the world’ is very ‘ARTICULATE’ in stating that she would end the war herself if Congress failed to do it by January 2009. Mrs. Clinton would be expected to make an objective decision supporting the best interests of the U.S.
if given the awesome job of Commander
In Chief of our forces. Her promise to
‘end the war’ is noted by our foes as
well as our friends.
Hillary Clinton voted for the Iraq War in 2002. Now that she must pander to the anti-war Left of the Democratic Party, she now wants the US to retreat in 90 days. Some what answer to your 2002 vote do you have for us today Hillary?
Clinton, the wife of former President Bill Clinton, has been criticized by some Democrats for supporting authorization of the war in 2002 and for not renouncing her vote as she seeks the U.S. presidency in next year’s election.
“Now it’s time to say the redeployment should start in 90 days or the Congress will revoke authorization for this war,” the New York senator said in a video on her campaign Web site, repeating a point included in a bill she introduced on Friday. (ABC News)
At Hot Air they have the video and Hillary’s one upsmanship of Obama. I’ll see your pullout in March 2008 and raise you a June 2007. Is this really what we need as a Commander & Chief? One who just plays political games and makes decisions as the wind blows. It is truly sad that our brave soldiers are mere puppets for these politicians amusement.
And if Bush doesn’t comply? She’ll call on Congress to revoke the Authorization to Use Military Force …
Hillary Clinton is a political opportunist, nothing more, nothing less. See Hillary run to the Left … see Hillary run to the Center. See Hillary do whatever it takes to get elected without a conviction or ideal that she stands behind. Captain Ed says it best:
The worst part about it is its nakedly political purposes. Hillary has come to regret her run to the center during her Senatorial career, and now wants to suck up to the International ANSWER set that runs the Left of the Democrats. In order to establish her bona fides and compete with Barack Obama’s demand for a phased withdrawal by March 2008, she just bumped the timetable up by nine months.
From PoliPundit, “Hillary Signing a Different Tune” … Under enormous pressure from the far-left hope we lose the war crowd …

She is such a disgrace to women.
When it was politically expedient she voted for the war. Now that she must pander to the anti-war uber left she must distance herself and ask for a US retreat.
How many times will this woman change her mind? I am sure she has our troops best interest at heart and not her candidacy.
She is not as cool as a monkey. I would rather have monkeys run for President.
The horrors of horrors if she actually got elected, is that these brave soldiers would actually have her as their commander in chief. Man, what do you do? To salute such a commander in chief would feel like betrayal to self and country. I am proudly related to several soldiers, and know that each one of them would be heartsick over such an election.
ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN BUSH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think the very worst that Hillary can be accused of is trusting the assessment of the prewar intelligence that Congress was given before the vote on the Iraq war resolution. And I think Hillary should just fess up and state clearly that her vote to support the resolution was conscientiously correct because at the time the votes were cast it was not known to Congress that the intelligence was flawed and the data given them was false.
The resolution Hillary voted to support authorized President Bush to use the Armed Forces to “defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq and enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions regarding Iraq.” The “continuing threat posed by Iraq” is in reference to unconventional weapons that Saddam was thought to have which could be passed on to terrorists. But there was no unconventional weapons to pose a “continuing threat” and Iraq is now compliant in all “relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions.” The Coalition Provisional Government authority has ended and the United Nations has established diplomatic relations with the new sovereign Interim Government of Iraq.
I think Hillary has no reason to apologize for supporting the Iraq war resolution. But likewise, I think she has no reason to support a continued occupying military presence in Iraq now that the Coalition Provisional Government authority in Iraq has ended. The Armed Forces of the United States is a combat force, not a police force. If there is job that remains for an occupying security force in Iraq, it is a job for the United Nations.
Someone lied and a lot of people died, not the least of which are our own military men and women. I don’t know how we fix that but I think a good start is to stop asking our combat forces to remain on the battle field of a war that was authorized before it was known that the intelligence and data given those who authorized it was mistaken.
Retreat up on this, you ol’ scudder windbag!
Hillary is not
playing with all
52 cards in her deck.
Such a fitting cartoon Vanderbilt. I think she should be holding a head on a plate. Any guesses whose head would be on the plate?
Woman speak with fork tongue. Speaks out of both sides of mouth.
Old saying. Stand for something, at least just one and stand firm. I can’t recall that happening with her. Not a stand by my man kind of woman? What did she do…..I don’t stay home and bake cookies, but in a recent interview, she likes to stay home and putz?
I voted for the war…..I want to stop the war.
I do not believe this, are there still Americans out there that believe the war was a good idea ?
The only one who should be held accountable for this war is Bush.Congress voted for this war because of the intell they were given.The made up lies ,so Bush could go to war.If the truth should ever surface about Bush’s involvement,he should be impeached.What he did was far worse than Clinton.Bush is responsable for the death’s of thousand of people,including our own brave soldiers
Why do you believe Hillary’s claim that she was just voting on the intelligence given to her and yet the same is not afford President Bush? Was he not given the same information?
If for the reason alone that we went to war was to allow women to be able to chose to learn to read, honey hush, that is enough for me. Just by leaving and causing the massacre I know will happen once we do, that is enough… I am all for preserving our way of life, even if other countires want us to be quagmired in high unemployment and back breaking taxes… and I do believe 1000000% that the terrorist will stop at nothing until all “non-believers” are dead. JMO.
#11 – You nailed it.
Er, I thought it was Afghanistan where the girls were not allowed to go to school and Rumsfeld gave Saddam all those weapons (all those years back) to help Saddam stop the Iranians making it like that in Iraq.
Taliban and El Kaida go together, but Hussain was different
(bad as hell as well) but he was never a religious fanatic.
The Iraq war has only made the world more unstable.The possibility of terrorism on us has increased ,because of Bush’s ego.We are hated around the world because of one man.I agreed with the Afgan war,but we didn’t finish the job there.Bin ladin is still not caught or dead.Iraq is Bush’s war.Impeach Bush
#11 mrs. red
I read over my post again to see if there was anything I said that is critical of President Bush regarding the prewar intelligence that Congress was given. I had no intention in mind to find fault in or slander President Bush and I do not find anything in my post regarding the prewar intelligence that criticizes President Bush.
I did say “someone lied.” That is to cast aspersions on “someone” in the literal meaning of the word, an unspecified person or persons. Actually, I agree with the Senate Intelligence Committee that investigated the intelligence failure, whose assessment was that the President and his advisors was also victims with Congress of a CIA intelligence failure bordering on catastrophic.
I still believe (in the literal meaning of the phrase) “someone lied,” an unspecified person or persons made statements meant to deceive. To narrow down the person or persons who lied, I suspect it was expatriates of Iraq who was informants giving information to the CIA. I think the CIA should have been much more cautious in gathering intelligence and trusting Iraqi expatriate informants having an axe to grind, such as Ahmad Chalabi, a major source of the intelligence information gathered by the CIA.
No harm meant… I shouldn’t have used your post probably… I should have posted for those that will afford Hillary that “gaffe” why don’t they afford Bush the same? That was really my point,but Britian, Germany, everyone actually thought that to be the case including Clinton the man.
DP, you are wrong that Bush has caused the world to hate us. They have hated us for a long while…. also, what part about the fanatics don’t believe in live and let live don’t you get? They don’t want us to pull out of Iraq, they want us to die.
Brad, It’s the same fanantics that are behind the insurgency that believe women should be kept from reading. Just the fact that Sadam and his kids raped women all the time tells me their opinion of my gender.
Didn’t I see a poll that suggests Bill (womanizing Bubba) is still more popular than Hillary? And that people who vote for him over her for president 7 to 1? Not suggesting we all get on the band wagon for Bill, but when you trail your husband seven to one? I mean, time to take a look in the mirror and bow out.
She absolutely cannot win. She will raise lots and lots of money and then turn it over to the front runner, whomever that will be.
Time Magazine article makes a lot of sense:
Support the Troops – Bring Them Home
Mrs Red. It’s not the same fanatics at all. If you do not understand that then you have a big problem.
In this world there are religious nuts and just nuts.
Saddam belonged to the nuts fraction, the Taliban and El Kaida definitely the religious nuts.
George Bush . . . both (religious and nuts).
Can you imagine that God also likes the Europeans?
No way, God is on the true American side, just like he was when it came to massacring those bloody Indians who seemed to think America belonged to them just because they were there first.
SM: Why do those with a liberal agenda have to always be so condescending? Hmm?
BTW Brad … Native Americans never thought the land belonged to them.
Go check out when you get a chance just how many Euro’s are religious? Sorry … but go see the numbers for yourself. Not many.
Brad, where in my post did I ever say that God was only American…
what I did say and will repeat, is that I think that so many Europeans think that the US should become just like them with high taxes, high unemployment and ineffective socialized medicine.
You really need to learn reading comprehension… , I think Saddam was a fanatic.
i believe that we as american are cowards. we will fight just for the nick of time then cut and run. if i were the terrorist i vote hillary clinton b/c i can bring the fight to america instead. lets not for get a clinton was president for 8 years that allow 9/11 to happen. so clinton for the win and we shall she another 9/11 at a higher scale .. any person with common sense should know that this fight wont last forever its either us (americans) or them (jihad freaks) that will die in the end.
the only thing Bush did was, he defended our country at a time of need. if you dislike him that much, ou have at least 1 thing in common with those terrorist.
