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.
