Feeling pressure from the Left for her support of the war in Iraq, Hillary Clinton does what any idiot would do when confronted by angry, desperate liberals whose votes they may need in the future: attack George W. Bush.
2008 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has finally broken her silence on the Bush administration National Security Agency program that conducts surveillance on suspected terrorists based in the U.S. - saying that she opposes spying on "Americans."
The top Democrat chose an unusual forum to announce her opposition - a fundraising letter emailed Friday in which she detailed her resolutions for the New Year.
"I am resolved to keep speaking out about my disagreements with this administration and their congressional allies," Clinton told her supporters, listing among her complaints: "A secret program that spies on Americans!"
After noting the NSA program, Mrs. Clinton vowed to fight for "national security policies that tell the truth and level with the American people."
She also observed that "the values that made America in the 20th century not just the economic leader of the world, but the moral leader of the world are under attack today."
First of all, no one with the last name 'Clinton' should be allowed to have any say on "values" or "morals".
Secondly, this is another example of Hillary at her best--keeping an eye out on the polls and playing the Leftist card to cater to her liberal fanbase when needed, while not venturing too far left to rankle her more centrist ideologies.
Of course, leave it up to Clinton and the rest of the liberal zealots to leave out the fact that the only Americans being "spied" on are people engaging in calls with people say in Afghanistan, a perfectly legal effort that worked to disrupt a plot to blow up a landmark right in Hillary's backyard, the Brooklyn Bridge. Then too, Mrs. Clinton forgot to mention that 64% of Americans believe the National Security Agency (NSA) should be allowed to intercept telephone conversations between terrorism suspects in other countries and people living in the United States. And it's also funny how Clinton makes no mention of the fact that when he was president, her husband usurped the NSA way more than George W. Bush has.
That Hillary. What a mercenary.
