Hillary's Deeply Held Convictions

Why is it that the Clinton's can lie through their teeth on a regular basis and never get called on it by the mainstream media, even when the lies come only a few days apart ? Okay, my friends, put your hands down, I know you all know the answer. This is for those 'other' people, the ones who think the Clintons can do no wrong, who think the Clintons actually have decency and character and things like that.

Hillary has been out on the campaign trail telling some whoppers lately, as pointed out in Ron Kessler's column. Here are a few examples from the column:

Regarding the ad attacking general Petraeus: Clinton on Meet the Press on Sept. 23 called for an end to such attacks. "I don't condone anything like that, and I have voted against those who would impugn the patriotism and the service of the people who wear the uniform of our country", she said.
Yet three days earlier, Clinton had voted against a Senate resolution to condemn the ad

On Sept. 23, on Fox News Sunday, Clinton said that she has "fought hard" for body armor . . ." She added, "I've stood with my colleagues to fight hard for armored vehicles because we knew that they needed additional protection in Iraq and they weren't getting it".

Yet last May, Clinton voted against the emergency supplemental bill to provide $1.6 billion for body armor, including advanced combat helmets; $2.4 billion to help protect against improvised explosive devices; and $3 billion for mine-resistant, ambush protected vehicles.
During her Sept 23 appearance on Meet The Press, Clinton said that current strategy in Iraq is not working: "I will end our involvement at the level that we've seen that has not proven to be successful".

But in August, Clinton had said in a speech at the Veterans of Foreign Wars national convention in Kansas City, Mo., that the so-called surge in Iraq is "working".
Clinton's prevarications about her vote to support the Iraq war are even more striking. On Oct. 10, 2002, she stated on the Senate floor: "It is clear. . . that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capability to wage biological and chemical warfare and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons".

On Sept. 15, 2002, she said on Meet the Press: "I can support the president, I can support an action against Saddam Hussein because I think it's in the long term interests of our national security . . ."

Yet this year in the Democratic presidential debate on Aug. 19 in Des Moines, Clinton claimed that when she voted for the Authorization of the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq, she thought she was voting to support more diplomatic efforts. She said she "regret[ed] giving George Bush the authority that he misused and abused".

In fact, she voted against an amendment introduced in 2002 by Sen. Carl Levin that would have required more diplomacy. On the Sept. 23 Meet the Press, Clinton made yet another misleading statement about that vote, saying she opposed the measure because she did not want to give the United Nations veto power over U.S. actions. But the measure did not give the U.N. veto power and explicitly said the U.S. has the inherent right to use military force in self-defense.
Another article detailing Hillary's hypocrisy on Iraq can be found here.

But I can't disagree with everything Hillary says. "The American people are tired of liars and people who pretend to be something they're not", stated "lifetime Yankee fan" Clinton.

Amen, girl.

I also think there are some Hillary quotes that DO reflect her true convictions, like these:

"The only way to make a difference is to acquire power"

"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good" - on revoking the Bush tax cuts.

"Who is going to find out? These women are trash. Nobody's going to believe them" - Hillary the 'feminist' on hubby Bill's numerous indiscretions and sexual attacks. Another Hillary quote is also pertinent here. "As women and as lawyers, we must never again shy from raising our voices against sexual harassment" - Right, unless political power is involved and/or the women are 'trash'.

And then there's the personal side of Hillary (when the cameras aren't rolling): "Fk off! It's enough that I have to see you sh!t-kickers every day, I'm not going to talk to you too!! Just do your Gdamn job and keep your mouth shut".
(From the book "American Evita" by Christopher Anderson, p. 90 - Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with "Good morning".

And finally, the introspective (and self-serving) Hillary. "Probably my worst quality is that I get very passionate about what I think is right".

Sure it is, Hillary. Sure it is.
