Bill Clinton's Wife Ms. “I loath the military” Spars With General on Credibility

It's Clinton Versus Petraeus
The New York Sun ....article is 3 pages, to read complete article just click on the link. Thank you.


Senator Clinton.........came closer than any of her colleagues to calling the commander of the multinational forces in Iraq a liar.

Using blunter language than any other Democrat in the last two days, Mrs. Clinton told General Petraeus that his progress report on Iraq required "a willing suspension of disbelief."

Referring to the charts General Petraeus brought to the House and Senate this week, Mrs. Clinton said:

"Although the charts tell part of the story, I don't think they tell the whole story." She said the "bottom-up" political reconciliation was "anecdotal" and that the success in Anbar province, where sheiks turned on Al Qaeda, started before the surge.

At the end of her speech, Mrs. Clinton pointed to what she saw as a discrepancy in the general's responses to questions from other senators about whether he would recommend that America keep 130,000 troops in Iraq a year from now if no progress was made toward national reconciliation.

"Don't you think the American people deserve a very specific answer about what is expected from our country in the face of the failure of the Iraqi government and its failure to achieve its political agenda?" she asked.
General Petraeus responded calmly. "I don't see quite as big a difference as you do," he said. "I would be very hard pressed at that time to recommend a continuation of our current troop levels" if conditions on the ground were the same in a year as they are now. He added that Mrs. Clinton's question was "quite a bit hypothetical."

Wild Thing's comment........

In a perfect world this Hitlery scum would not be allowed to be in the same room with a member of our awesome military. At least in my world if things could be how I would want them.

Didn't she vote FOR the war?
What a turncoat.
Used to be if you were a turncoat, they tarred and feathered you and sent you out of town on a rail.
Look what happened to Benedict Arnold and Captain Wilkins in The Patriot.
How will she feel if we are attacked even worse than before because of something that she and her kind did or said?
The Clintons are pathological liars and criminals. Why would we even think of putting them in office again?
She had her time in the sun and now she wants to take it away from our descendancy. How fair is that?

Hillary is catering and posturing to what she thinks is the popular concept of the surge. She is wrong. More voters support the surge than don't. But then her voter base is block groups of special interests who think like herds of sheep.

This same Hillary Clinton wanted military uniforms banned from the White House because it offended her.

Back in the early mid 90's, I met a maintenance line chief from the 89th Airlift Wing (Air Force One) who said the Clinton's treated the maintenance personnel like subservient peons. I asked him how Bush/Quail treated them and he said they were decent human beings who went out of their way to thank them for the work they did.

Hillary is the alpha bitch of the hyena's on the Communist left and their special interest groups. You can listen to and watch their every move on Democracy Now, the Marxist Communist news outlet that voices the same talking points as she does. She only affirmed her disrespect for the military and General Petraeus before the nation's media when she opened her yap by trying to bait him into a verbal commitment to strategic failure and subsequent committing to an early troop withdrawal. He's a good honest man doing a horrible job for the security of this nation, something that the defeatist eunuch she married wouldn't or couldn't do. This woman is as dangerous as or maybe more dangerous to this country than Josef Stalin ever was, she is the enemy within.

So now she is securing her moonbat, moveOn base by attacking General Patraeus.

They, the dems, demand answers to questions that can not be honestly answered with a yes or a no, they are demanding the General predict the future. They have made comments on the statements he made 3 years ago, when those statements contradict the statements today they accuse him of lying.

The dems demand that this situation in Iraq be static and it is not and it can not be. There is no condition in Iraq they can not change overnight, they know this, at least they should.

It seems strange that the White House is silent, these two men are being roasted in the Senate, they have put their careers on the line for what they have achieved and what they are doing.

This is not an informative sesson for the Congress this is a democrat Inquisition. An attempt by the left wing socialists and communists to get at Bush and in the process destroying two very capable men whose only crime is they tried to do the very best they could in a very tough situation.

We all know the democrats are nothing but a bunch of liars, they know this too. They expect that everyone else is as corrupt and despicable as they are. When they come up against anyone with Character, Honesty and the credibility of these two fine men, their first instinct is to destroy them. It is who the democrats are.

This whole Senate show is nothing more than a democrat sham trial of the worst kind.

General Patraeus is unflappable, calm, deliberate regardless of the stupidness of the questions. We have some excellant leaders in our Military but General Patraeus I would follow him any where.

Hillary is the same idiot as Bill no difference. All the scum in this country lobby around these two idiots and always will. This country is doomed if she ever gets elected to be the prez. These fools who support her are socialist and communist people. The democratic party has been infiltrated with socialist and communist who pretend to be democrats and they have taken over the party completely and most of our older die-hard democrats who used to uphold the party have been lied too and shoved aside by these criminals. It is a sad time for the elder conservative democrats who do not know what has happened to them.

Hillary is just as big as a liar as Bush is.She is not fit to even think of being our President.God help America is she wins.[ She might ask Bush how he made it twice.]

Good one, Bird. How many tries did it take to get that one down?

Posted by: Rhod at September 12, 2007 07:31 PM

Lynn she sure did have her time in the sun. Enough is enough of her, America could not stand more years of either of the Clinton's in the White House.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 12, 2007 11:15 PM

Tom, they played the tape of Hillary again tonight on Hannity. I kept watching her eyes and she would not look at the General at all. She only glanced in his direction when she was done talking. I was getting angrier by the second at how she treated him.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 12, 2007 11:17 PM

Bob thank you so much for sharing about that.

I am glad the maintenance line chief had a chance to be treated the way he should have been from a different President, if nothing else then to show that the Clinton's were NOT what America is about regarding our military.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 12, 2007 11:19 PM

Jack thank you, she is so horrible. I agree she is extremely dangerous.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 12, 2007 11:20 PM

Mark, I watched General Patraeus and was so impressed. Even his body language spoke volumes, I am so glad he is the one that gave the report. Like he said, it is what he saw and what he knew of, first hand knowledge.

Not good enough for the dems but they can jump in a lake.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 12, 2007 11:23 PM

Orvis, "fools who support her are socialist and communist people.".....very true.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 12, 2007 11:25 PM

SSgt Steve, USMC, Yesssss! Thank you.

The useless b**** has credibility? The General has more credibility in is his little finger than this b**** has ever had period.

Steve & WT - When our C-5 Galaxy crews off loaded the MARINE ONE Ch-53's during our Volant Banner missions from 1993-1997, the Clintonistas were quoted as telling our aircrews to "get the shitter out of the way because we don't want it around when AF ONE arrives!"

Boy, they really love posturing when the cameras are in the room. I had to turn it off or I would have to be buying a new television :(
