GUEST,JB BS: Hillary Clinton? (101* d) RE: BS: Hillary Clinton? 04 Dec 03


Sorry Ebbie if you feel I am an idjit, you might actually be right, however I would like to present my case:

I don`t feel I actually got it „backasswards" as you so „endearingly" put it. Perhaps one reason might be that I, as an Irishman living in Germany mainly have access to the German media. The news here was presented in such a way as to indicate that your President made a sudden visit to Iraq to boost the morale amongst the soldiers on Thanksgiving day and Hilliary made a flying visit on the following day to outdo Mr. Bush. Personally I feel that both of them stink as one way or the other it all reeks of cheap politics. Besides I have never ever trusted anywone (male or female)yet who writes books while still in active office. Surely there must be an ulterior motive here somewhere.

As to the question why I used the word " 'foremost', that is simply and solely because this woman /Hilliary) so yearns to become the President of your country in 2008 that she is literally pushing herself into the limelight as if she were the no. 1 canidate. In fact her visit to Iraq will in no way have served any of the other Democratic candidates. On the contrary, it merely highlights the fact that she is actutely aware that the current panel of Democratic candidates are very pale in comparison and haven`t a hope in Hell of getting elected. In other words Hilliary has her eyes set on the bigger loot in 2008 and is already throwing shapes.

Contrary to what you "Don Firth" stated that Mrs. Clinton`s powerful speech to congress about being against giving Bush special war powers, I can only once again tell you what I saw and heard on Germany`s primary national TV staion ARD. In no way did she really criticize or admonish Bush for attacking Iraq without a real UNO mandate, on the contrary she stated that this was the only way to go and tried to play the cunning, deceitful and clever politician`s game of not taking up any real position. In other words, the war was wrong but for Heaven`n`s sake do not criticise the Americans or Bush for going to war.

The woman is a calculated strategist who really wants butter on both sides of her bread. In Ireland we say "Run with hare and hunt with the hound"

I must admit that the Robert Byrd speech was sublime, but is Robert Byrd a Democraic Presidential candidate? Unfortunately I think not!

If however, there are real voters out there who genuinely oppose BUSH for what he is, his failed foreign policy and disastrous domestic policies. then please allow me to stand corrected and I will join hands with you all in hoping for a new change of government.


Sincerely

JB
