“WASHINGTON — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday accused Republicans of "playing the fear card" of terrorism to win elections and said Democrats cannot keep quiet if they want to win in November.
The New York Democrat, facing re-election this year and considered a potential White House candidate in 2008, said Republicans won the past two elections on the issue of national security and "they're doing it to us again."
Fox News atory.
I don’t think that Hillary Clinton has a realistic chance of being elected the leader of our country. But let’s dwell on the remote possibility that my prediction is proven incorrect. Might she ultimately prove to be another Golda Meir or Margaret Thatcher? Nope, this is highly unlikely. These two women possessed a healthy pessimism concerning human nature. They rightfully perceive the at least metaphorical reality of Original Sin is alive and well on planet Earth. Our emphasis must be on destroying our enemy and not dealing with “root causes.” Osama bin Ladin should be considered a murderous scum bag and not a misunderstood victim of Western imperialism. The ideological underpinning of Senator Clinton’s core philosophy revolves around the mistaken notion that the world is mostly comprised of victimizers and victims. If anyone is hostile towards the United States---then we must have done something to get them this angry. When push comes to shove, we are at fault. It is therefore the duty of the president of the United States to apologize profusely and ask for forgiveness. Is Hillary Clinton consciously aware of her deep seated motivations? Probably not, and this is what makers her so dangerous.
Try imagining the late Scoop Jackson running for president against a Republican candidate in 2008. Would he be spouting nonsense about the GOP allegedly “playing the fear card” to win elections? I don’t think so.
If nothing else, he might even run to the right of the Republicans!
