Today’s Hillary Hypocrisy

February 19, 2007

One thing we have come to expect from Hillary Clinton is her constant gaffs and contradictions of herself. As bad as she thinks she’s owed the presidency, one would think she would have her staff keep her briefed on what she said earlier in the week.

Her most famous was her claim that she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person to ever scale Mt. Everest. Sorry, Hillary, but he didn’t accomplish that until a few years after you were born. Of course, it is also possible that her Mom said that to her as a wee little girl to bolster her ego or make her feel better. But, wouldn’t the world’s smartest woman realize she was born before Hillary scaled Mt. Everest after she grew up and not make such a claim?

Lately, she has spared no verbiage in bashing President Bush and the War on Terror in Iraq. Campaigning, though, bashing the sitting President is somewhat normal. Still, She has been very outspoken against the War on Terror in Iraq even stating last month on January 28, "We expect him to extricate our country from this before he leaves office in January 2009.” Okay, still campaigning and pandering to the anti-war leftists.

Just this past Saturday, she quipped, "Now it's time to say the redeployment should start in 90 days or the Congress will revoke authorization for this war."

Okay, staying on her anti-war stance fairly well, so far.

As always with Hillary, sooner or later she trips over her tongue (not to be confused with Monica) and campaigning through South Carolina today, I feel she did just that!

While there and calling for the removal of the Confederate Battle Flag from the Statehouse, a flag that emotes strong emotions, from anger to pride, in various people and that both Black and White Southerners fought under during our Civil War and sadly, was hijacked by Supremacist groups in the 1960’s, she said that South Carolina should remove the Confederate flag from its Statehouse grounds, in part because the nation should unite under one banner while at war.

If she feels we should be “united under one banner,” aren’t her and the rest of the Democrat party and the White Flag Republicans constant opposition hindering the very thing she thinks should be? Not to mention slapping a whole bunch of Southerners she panders for votes.

I’ve never even seen anyone go off to war, this one or my own, waving a Confederate Battle Flag. All have fought under one flag and one flag only, the American Flag.

If she expects us to become “united under that one banner” though, perhaps her own vitriolic opposition and that of the Democrat party and White Flag Republicans should cease and desist and they start working together with the President, as he has been trying to get them to do, and support our troops onward to Victory.
