Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) is currently the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States. With that in mind, it’s vitally important to recall certain things she has stated in the recent past:
San Francisco, California, June 28, 2004:
“We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”
Discussing her plan for nationalized health care in 1993:
“We just can’t trust the American people to make those types of choices … Government has to make those choices for people.”
And to add to that list, we have this story.
Hillary’s vote in 2002 was for the sending of UN inspectors into Iraq to ensure Saddam’s compliance with the terms of his 1991 surrender. Apparently not only did she not read the intelligence reports she was provided with, she also voted for an act she did not even read — the Authorization For Use Of Military Force In Iraq resolution, whose very first words are “To authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against Iraq.”
So we should set aside our own beliefs, thoughts, and doubts and trust in Big Government to run the important stuff — as emblemized by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY), who doesn’t do her homework or even read the de facto declaration of war she votes for.
Someone tell me again how she’s going to run on the “smart and competent” platform. I need a good laugh.
