the three-week win war a liberating success for Iraqis held captive for thirty
years by a bloodthirsty despot, Hillary, like hubby Bill, just can’t wait
to start swinging that Dem bat at United States President George W. Bush.
So there she was — slinging away for dear life last night, April 28, in Southington,
She set her jaw in cement and let the Oval Office have it.
Of course, she could not wade into Iraqi Freedom for that conflict like none
other has shifted the planet plates forever. She could not wade into the
President’s ratings for they are in the low 70s. She could not slug away
at the President’s morality or ethics for we get what we see with George
W. Bush, unlike what was playing out on Pennsylvania Avenue during the Clinton
Hillary’s "fiery speech," according to the Associated Press, accused the
Bush successes of stooping to the grimiest economic programs since Herbert
Hoover. Further, she articulated that Bush has no idea what he’s talking
about when it comes to the nation’s economy nor do any of his team members.
Consequently, this country, she claims, is in a dire fiscal jam.
United States Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton let loose: "There is an unease.
. .People know better than what they hear and what they see."
Now at that point, we have to give credit where credit is rightly due. Ms.
Hillary should know of which she speaks when moving into philosophical parlance
related to principled speech and deeds.
What is not for the full length of the Clinton regime that the entire world
was held captive by double-speak — both on the part of Hillary and William?
Was it forever the game of ear against mouth, that is, the public ear trying
to decipher exactly what the Clinton mouth was speaking, particularly, for
example, when it came to whether "is" is "is" or some other verbal creature?
If anyone should have a sixth sense of nosing in on having to delineate between
what "they hear and what they see" it is Hillary and Harangue Like-Unto.
Thank God that the American public has come to that breath of fresh air by
which we can now hear what the US President has to say and believe that our
ears are hearing rightly, principally, ethically, morally soundly and all
the other grand adverbs one can line up to endorse the fact that our leader
is a man of truth and not a mannequin of lies upon lies.
Let’s hear Ms. Hillary once again on that bat sling: "People know better
than what they hear and what they see." Did you get it? Her main punch is
a boomerang which slings right back to her own Clinton White House years,
when world ears could not ever know if they were hearing correctly when it
came to mouthings from Pennsylvania Avenue.
On that postulate alone, the rest of Ms. Hillary’s speech can be suspect
— and was treated just as that by protesters outside the building and those
who attempted to crash the party inside as well. Police had to be called
in to settle the fracas.
Of course, she went on with characterizing the President as a snake oil salesman
and so forth and so forth — otherwise known as blah blah blah and more blah.
Well, for what it’s worth, as far as I’m concerned, if Ms. Hillary cannot
come up with something other than worn metaphors of political attic jargon,
then please sit down, Ms. Hillary! And stay down, please. Spare us.
So thus will God bless America.
