OK, I'm Not Voting for Hillary...

posted by John Blanco @ 4:09 PM

 


Hillary Clinton told reporters that both she and the presumtive Republican nominee John McCain offer the experience to be ready to tackle any crisis facing the country under their watch, but Barack Obama simply offers more rhetoric. "I think you'll be able to imagine many things Senator McCain will be able to say," she said. "He’s never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002."

So, where did the full quote come from in the blue box? All she says in the video is that she and McCain will bring a lifetime of experience, and Obama would bring a speech in 2002. Where's the rest of it?

Right about now you can find it all over the Internets. :-)

Actually, maybe I'm boneheaded, but I can't find it. I've used several search terms. I did see Bill Clinton say something about Hillary and McCain having a "boring" debate because they respect each other and that McCain and Clinton had a vodka-drinking contest once with other congress members(!), but I can't find her full quote that you e-mailed me earlier. And this video you posted here is by an Obama supporter (obviously), so its biased. I'd like to see her full quote somewhere unbiased and referenced.

Of course, my caveat now is that I really don't give a shit. I've thrown in the towel. I'm tired of witnessing the Hillary feasting going on, and I refuse to be a part of the insanity anymore. If Obama gets the nomination, I will unapologetically write Clinton in on my ballot and vote for her anyway. If McCain wins the election, this country deserves him. I've had it!

One last thing... not that I expect that you'll read it, but it pretty much outlines exactly why I made my statement about voting for Hillary regardless. Otherwise, I'd be a total hypocrite. Obama is not the squeaky-clean leader he is made out to me. I refuse to vote for him.

Yeah, booooo on Obama for actually trying to run a campaign. He should just be Mr. Nice Guy like he says he is. Hillary hasn't done anything to justify him making any kind of claim against her.

*shrug*

I don't think there's much to be taken out of context by the evil Obama supporters here. It's pretty clear what's being said -- and I'm always one to look for full quotes. I don't see a full transcript because it was just a presser.

This isn't out of context, Hillary has been using the "Barack lacks Washington experience" theme since the beginning of her campaign.

Now who's the angry elf? :-)

Here's his "experience":

We should be worried about it. There's just too much hypocrisy surrounding this man -- it should not be ignored.

Oh, I never said he was perfect. The Democrats are losing their way. The money that controls these people needs to be taken out -- but we have a big fight ahead of us on this front.

And we've already seen Hillary's record as well. It's all out there.

This is why I liked the original angry elf, Dennis Kucinich. :-)

But amongst these candidates...I'll put my trust in Barack any day. Unlike Hillary, she's still my #2, even if McCain is hers.

As I emailed you, I still go with my own judgment on the voting records as I have researched. I still don't like Obama's 130+ "present" votes and how he keeps spewing rhetoric about bringing change, when his voting record shows he voted exactly the same as Clinton on Iran and Iraq. I don't like a hypocrite. Remember the last time the American public was duped into believing something about a presidential candidate -- Mr. "Compassionate Conservative"? Remember what happened? Yeah. The last 8 years of shit.

And by the way, I know people love to make fun of Clinton for claiming executive experience as First Lady and then say she did nothing, but she actually did quite a lot for women and children and human rights in general during her years there, including fighting to get all children covered by health insurance. Also, her book "It Takes a Village" -- she donated all proceeds to children's charities. It's just the facts, ma'am!

And if you want to believe "McCain is hers," that's absolutely your prerogative. But I do believe the media is skewing this again. Clinton and McCain have a good professional working relationship - big deal? It shows she can get along with the Republicans and perhaps make some headway as President.

By that comment by the way, she may have also been trying to make up for some damage that wacko Gloria Steinem created in TX when in a speech supporting Hillary, she denounced McCain's POW experience -- saying being captured and tortured doesn't mean he has military experience. YIKES! She said that -- in TX! I'm surprised she wasn't shot! Anyway, of course the media and Obama "fans" ;-) made the natural jump to blame Clinton for saying those words, even though Clinton sent a statement saying they were not her words.

Ah, dumb people...gotta love 'em.

Okay, fine, Clinton has more experience than McCain. No one is denying that. And, McCain has more experience than Clinton. Cheney, more experience than God. So? EXPERIENCE ISN'T EVERYTHING!!!

Clinton getting along with republicans and making headway? That must be why Rush Limbaugh was on the radio yesterday encouraging all Texas republicans to go vote for Hillary...yes! Limbaugh is for unity! Hah.

Or, on the other hand, maybe she DIDN'T win, even with Rush's help. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=87961802
