It was cordial, informative and interesting. I was looking forward to it as I have none of the 17 others so far in this silly season. They spent a lot of time on issues that are important to me and the rest of the United States..starting with health care.
John Edwards was the first Democratic candidate to give us his plan on healthcare. As one of the 47 million without health insurance..this is probably the most important issue to me, outside the Iraq War and the Economy of course.
I hate to admit it, but Hillary seems to have the best plan of the two candidates. This puts me in a quandary….
Would I be able to hold my nose and cast a vote for her next Tuesday? Could I actually do that? I have steadfastly refused to consider voting for sHillary. I have stated it from day one.
I am not a one-issue voter. I have, in the past, supported candidates that held different views on specific issues because their basic platform was a good one and for that blessed of all reasons..for the good of the country as a whole.
Now..I just don’t know..I have to figure it out soon however, because Tuesday is right around the corner. Jesus, I hate being conflicted….
Watch her last ad that will be running tonight on every Iowa channel during the evening news. Check out how many times she lies about ‘bringing our soldiers home’, when we all know she has no intention of doing that in her ‘first’ term as President. Bitch has balls, thats for sure. This is her bullshit for the masses commercial. Wonder how many will buy into it..we will know tomorrow evening.
In a recent debate, all three of the Democratic front-runners declined to make a pledge to have all U.S. forces withdrawn from Iraq by 2013
“Will you pledge that by January 2013, the end of your first term, more than five years from now, there will be no U.S. troops in Iraq?” MSNBC’s Tim Russert, who moderated the debate, asked Senator Barack Obama.
“I think it’s hard to project four years from now, and I think it would be irresponsible,” Sen. Obama responded. “We don’t know what contingency will be out there,” he continued. The best he could do was declare: “I will drastically reduce our presence there to the mission of protecting our embassy, protecting our civilians, and making sure that we’re carrying out counterterrorism activities there.”
Sen. Hillary Clinton, likewise, refused to take the pledge. “I agree with Barack,” she said, adding, “It is very difficult to know what we’re going to be inheriting.”
Even former Senator John Edwards, who is generally placed as the No. 3 Democrat in major-media polling and who has made opposition to the war a cornerstone of his campaign, responded in the negative to Russert’s question, saying: “I cannot make that commitment.”
Helen Thomas, a columnist for Hearst Newspapers and a veteran White House correspondent covering every administration from John F. Kennedy through George W. Bush, blasted the democratic presidential candidates and “the spineless Democratic congressional leadership” in a column entitled, “The Democrats who enable Bush.”
The scrappy Thomas angrily noted:
The leading Democratic presidential candidates sang from the same songbook: Sens. Hillary Clinton of New York, and Barack Obama of Illinois, and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards refused to promise to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq by 2013, at the end of the first term of their hypothetical presidencies. Can you believe it?
I believe it Helen..problem is..the voters have very short memories.. Now, I think the next video is more truthful than Hillarys..except for the part about voting for Obama..I am not ready to cast my lot with him or Edwards yet.
Angry Black Bitch has a good post up that informs us of the following:
ABC News has learned that the campaign of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., has registered the names of two Web sites with the express goal of attacking her chief rival, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.
It’s the first time this election cycle a presidential campaign has launched a Web site with the express purpose of of launching serious criticisms on a rival.
That’s right Hill..don’t tell us what you want to do..just cheap shot your closest rival. Wotta load of fuckwittery this is. Its also a typical Rethug move, which doesn’t surprise me in the least, but a Democrat that stoops this low is pure cow shit indeed. Swiftboating fits your smarmy ass so nicely Hillary Rodham-Clinton..seriously.
David Sirota has a piece up about Hillary’s position on NAFTA and the new NAFTA expansion the Senate will vote on next week. He made a YouTube vid of her response last night in the latest round of Presidential debates held on CNN.
Hillary is a DINO for the most part. She is a Rethug in Democratic clothing on many of the important issues. NAFTA expansion is one of THE most important domestic issues facing us today. NAFTA has affected our workforce as no other bill passed by our congress ever has in the last decade or so.. imho.
