In a speech today in Iowa, Sen. Clinton announced that if elected her husband would make him a roaming ambassador to the world.
I wonder if he has a girl in every port – again I apologize but I couldn’t resist.
Here are excerpts:
MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa –
Sen Clinton, said Saturday that if she is elected president, she would make her husband a roaming ambassador to the world, using his skills to repair the nation’s tattered image abroad.
“I can’t think of a better cheerleader for America than Bill Clinton, can you?” the Democratic senator from New York asked a crowd jammed into a junior high school gymnasium. “He has said he would do anything I asked him to do. I would put him to work.”
“I’m very lucky that my husband has been so experienced in all of these areas,” said Clinton, who pointed to the diplomatic assignments her husband has carried out since leaving office, such as raising money for tsunami victims
I have a feeling that Bill Clinton “WOULD” do anything to get away from her, I mean can you blame him. As far as a better cheerleader for America, Monica always did have that vacuous glazed look of the prototypical cheerleader, although the rest of the body didn’t quite “fit” the prototype or into much anything less than xlarge.
Rich people didn’t make American great,” Clinton said. “It was the middle class who made this country great.”
Okay, so what’s your point?
She denounced the Bush administration, which she said has left the government incompetent. “They have shown contempt for our government,” Clinton said. “We’ve got to get back to having qualified people, not cronies, serving in the government of the United States.”
America agrees, and while they may not like the Bush Administration, they certainly aren’t showing adulation for Ms. Clinton. Her negatives are scary, and growing every day. The more we see, the less we like.
“You’ve got to have more help for communities when you have a lot of undocumented workers because they have costs associated with that and they don’t set immigration policy,” Clinton said.
Sadly, Ms. Clinton has not spoken about any policy positions of her own on this substantive area of national debate.
She also said any immigration reform must be tougher on businesses that hire illegal immigrants.
Okay, that’s fair, what about the border? Silence…damn.
She said nothing will affect the issue until leaders of countries, such as Mexico, improve the economic lives for millions living in poverty.
Oh, so now we pay the welfare pay outs not only for illegals here, but to shore up those countries to stop future immigrants from coming into the country over the border, hey, what about the border?. Hey, at least we get them to do jobs for us when they are here. Umm…the border Senator? What about it??
Clinton also said she would raise taxes for the wealthy, who she said “aren’t paying their fair share.” She also praised the economic policies of her husband that brought budget surpluses.
Did she talk about securing the border? Damn, that idea slipped right by here. I guess she didn’t read this report about the stock market hitting 13000 yesterday. Hey, what about the border??
“We need to get back to fiscal responsibility,” she said.
We need to get you and Bill together out of the country representing us somewhere. Regardless of how badly the Bush Administration has run this country, and you can make a strong case that they have, NOBODY has forgotten how awful you and Bill were. Trust me Senator, the nation would likely repeal the 22nd Amendment rather than have you as Commander in Chief. That thought is just darned scary.
