What you are saying is nothing new and yes, she like her husband does not get it. Because the military swears an oath and are apolitical (to the point of sending people to jail), she believes that they are stupid. As a result, whatever she says will be greedily slurped up by these people that have neither the brains or ambition to do anything worthwhile, like run Blockbuster.
In 1999 I was deployed to Germany in support of Allied Force in Kosovo. When the President blew through on his way to meeting the Euro Pols and wanted some photo ops with the troops. Our commander asked for volunteers, when none came we ordered two airmen and one Sgt. to go.
Though I could have retired in 2000 I waited until 2001 to put my papers in so that my certificate would not bear the signature of our President at the time.p>No, Hillary does not get it, but the boys and girls do. And someone should/must explain to her that second guessing the leadership (when you are the leadership — i.e. a Senator) is VERY bad for morale. br> — John Mahaffey /p> p> I was appalled when I read the reports of Hil’s visit to our troops. She certainly didn’t come off as a commander in chief. What a shame that just for once in her life she couldn’t visit the troops on Thanksgiving and cheer them up. Her comments unfortunately spoiled the whole picture and she showed the visit to be just what it was — another political slam against our President. She has accomplished the same thing right at home and didn’t need to show her selfish agenda in front of our troops. Hillary Clinton has absolutely no class and would shame the White House — again — if she ever fools the public into voting for her for president. I’m sure she didn’t fool the troops. What a disgraceful rhetoric she brings to our hope for peace. br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
