America is sending out an SOS and here we have Mrs. Clinton, most likely to be confirmed as Secretary of State, touting that climate change threatens our very existence. ““At the extreme [climate change] threatens our very existence, but well before that point, it could very well incite new wars of an old kind—over basic resources like food, water, and arable land. The world is in need of an urgent, coordinated response to climate change and, as President- Elect Obama has said, America must be a leader in developing and implementing it,” she said. http://www.cqpolitics.com/wmspage.cfm?docID=news-000003009111
New wars? More wars? So now I get why we were so pissed Russia wants to claim Antarctica-is must be the supposed melting ice to control the drinking water- not the oil. Duh. Good thing we’ve hung on to Alaska and all that frozen tundra up there. Good for Palin!
Gee, I was figuring an Iran with nuclear weapons is a bigger threat.
As a Senator from New York, Clinton has voted at least 17 times against measures promoting ethanol production saying she was concerned that it would raise gasoline prices for her constituents. http://archive.newsmax.com/archives/ic/2007/1/29/145402.shtml?s=ic I suppose now that gas is below $2 that is as good of reason as any to abandon drilling here in the US and instead focus on Obama’s plan to help the economy in a greener way. OMG- how many trees are being cut down to print all that TARP and bailout money? Tit for tat, a bit of cheese for a rat.
Robert Reich the the nation’s 22nd Secretary of Labor had this to say about what to do? … there’s no reason to think about “green jobs” as simply high-tech. Many low-income and low-skilled workers — women as well as men — could be put directly to work providing homes and businesses with more efficient and renewable heating, lighting, cooling, and refrigeration systems; installing solar panels and efficient photo voltaic systems; rehabilitating and renovating old properties, and improving recycling systems. “Green Jobs Corps” teams could be trained to evaluate and advise homeowners and businesses on these and other means of conserving energy.” http://robertreich.blogspot.com/2009/01/stimulus-how-to-create-jobs-without.html A Green Jobs Corps? Oh, heavens to Mergatroid! Want to bet Mrs. Obama wears a green dress suit to the inauguration? Will Obama wear a green tie to signify his green, one world global policies? Got me wondering if he’ll wear a flag pin as well?
Hillary will most likely once again take credit for initiatives her husband’s administration sought, as well as Obama’s and maybe even The Green Job Corps. Whatever goes wrong, she can blame O.
What about that little diddy in her past about the illegal campaign contributions? Under the rug. Peter F. Paul claimed in his lawsuit that he financed a gala and other fundraisers for Hillary Clinton because he was promised by some of the Clinton’s’ handlers that Bill would join the board of his company Stan Lee Media. The Movie Star laden Hollywood fundraiser was the subject of a criminal trial of Clinton’s former national finance director, David Rosen, who ended up being acquitted. Hillary was dropped from the suit under California’s anti-SLAPP statute that is designed to reduce frivolous lawsuits and protect people’s First Amendment rights.
Hillary couldn’t even tell the truth about whom she was named after, “Mrs Clinton also once said her parents named her after [New Zealand native] Sir Ed Hillary, a nice line till it was pointed out she was born more than five years before he climbed Everest, when he was still a lesser-known beekeeper.” http://blog.foreignpolicy.com/node/8721 Guess that bee stung a bit.
There is a nice little review on Hillary’s most revealing fibs at http://voices.washingtonpost.com/fact-checker/2007/12/most_revealing_bloopers_hillar_1.html
Making sure nothing could embarrass Hillary or the US, it seems there are still thousands of documents absent from the federally funded Clinton Presidential Library. http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp?memberId=-1&grpId=3659174697241980&articleId=281474977176190 Donations to the foundation apparently don’t have enough bearing on Hillary Clinton’s prospective tenure as Secretary of State. The donor lists a who is who of intermingling and can be reviewed in part http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/12/18/clinton-foundation-donors_n_152128.html Definitely no improprieties there –grumble-but just to be sure Senator Kerry thinks the donor list should be released once a month.
I want to know if she can define the word- is. President Clinton put it this way, “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the–if he–if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not–that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement….Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true.” http://www.slate.com/id/1000162/
Is Obama completely off his rocker to employ Hillary Clinton? For all intents, it appeared they couldn’t stand each other. Oh, but remember SR 511? The little resolution that Clinton sponsored about natural born citizenship. This is payback .
America is in distress and sending out an SOS to anyone who will listen and we are spending countless millions on an inauguration. Heck, even Bruce Springsteen is going to show up for a free concert. I can’t bet he will not be playing, “Born in the USA.” I’ve heard the Beltway mantra is that we need to look forward to as opposed to looking back wards.
Like GWB often says, maybe we misunderestimated Hillary Clinton.
God Bless America
