Carol Platt Liebau: Pre-Presidential Campaign Grandstanding

Pre-Presidential Campaign Grandstanding

She's supposed to be the smartest woman in the world, and this is the best Hillary Clinton can do? To call for Donald Rumsfeld's resignation? What, exactly, would she do differently at this point?

Interestingly, after Secretary Rumsfeld pointed out that he had never painted an unduly rosy picture of the difficulties of the war on terrorism, Hillary's staff released a list of statements purporting to show the contrary -- statements like this from Secretary Rumsfeld: "We do not expect to have 115,000 troops permanently deployed in any one campaign." As the piece points out, there are 133,000 in Iraq right now.

But not permanently. In fact, Iraq's prime minister has a plan for US withdrawal.

Again, one has to ask: Is this the best Hillary can do?

The Democraat Party is hopelessly broken, and to that I say, Amen! Oh yea, the same tired people, (have you seen pictures of Hillary lately? She looks worn out) will still hang around and cause trouble, but not without forming a new party. Their party is almost over!

Hillary has documented more Rumsfeld statements of incompetence.

It appears Hillary would not be like GW, rewarding and promoting those incompetent and/or placing unqualified cronies into office.

She would not play dodgeball with the people's trust by acting like GW refusing to accept responsibility.

We don't have a president. We have a former president's spoiled son playing and messing up in the White House.

Today 14,000 Iraqis took to the streets in protest and burned American flags.

Really? How about: Webster Hubbell (prison), Mike Espy (resigned after taking money from Tyson Foods), James and Susan McDougal (prison), Ron Brown (under investigation, before his death, for falsifying his financial disclosure report and for receipt of bribes), Janet Reno (Branch Davidian and Elian Gonzalez fiascos), Les Aspin (refused to send weaponry requested by Somalia military commanders and Army Rangers paid the price), Joshua Steiner (said he had lied in his own diary notes), Henry Cisneros (lied to the FBI about money paid to keep a former paramour quiet), David Watkins (using military helicopters to take him golfing), Craig Livingstone (hired at the insistence of Hillary Clinton) and Anthony Marceca (FBI files on Republicans found illegally in their possession), Travel Office staff fired and trumped up charges against Billy Dale filed so Hillary Clinton's "people" could be given their jobs?

St. Hillary, co-president for eight years, had better fully cleanse her hands of her immediate past before attempting to tell us what a clean shop she would run in the future.

Bachbone, great insight/revelation. Says it all about Hillary and Bill for that matter. Sometimes the Clinton whoppers get too big for even their most ardent base to digest.

Is Editor a reconstituted JillMartin/DHead?

Enquiring minds want to know.

Fred over at Rantburg has a must-see map of the violent acts "all over" Iraq. It is color coded by density.

Quite telling, and makes one wonder about any actual "Civil War" breaking out across the nation.

You can see it here. Fred didn't mention who had made it, but he didn't claim it as his own.
