As Jim Addison and Lorie Byrd report, she’s actually going to run for President of the United States. And get this: she’s wrapping herself in the image of Margaret Thatcher. As an admirer of Lady Thatcher, that’s really offensive. Not only was the Iron Lady really tough when it came to national defense, but she was also an economic conservative who was a true believer in low taxes and deregulation. Before former PM Thatcher led the British parliament, the UK was steeped in a form socialism that was even greater it is today. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, will make sure we are steeped in socialism before she’s done with us. Remember the nightmare called HillaryCare?
Captain Ed is also unimpressed:
In what has to be one of the most anticlimatic campaign announcements since Ronald Reagan in 1979, Hillary Clinton officially announced her candidacy for the 2008 Presidential nomination.
Pejman Yousefzadeh at RedState noted the same thing and attributes it to having to rush to keep up with Barack Obama’s announcement.
Allahpundit hits hard on Hillary’s announcement:
On a Saturday morning? Sure, one of her advisors told Hotline — this way, she’s in the spotlight for the State of the Union on Tuesday. But then why not announce on Monday, when people are paying attention?
Amateur mistakes. I blame Bill.
She’s surprisingly non-robotic, although I guess if you can train animals to perform on sitcoms, you can train Hillary to feign warmth for 30 seconds. The passages on health care and dialogue will have you choking on bile.
