Hillary, what was that about the tone in Wash. DC?

"I sometimes feel that Alfred E Neuman is in charge in Washington," she said,
referring to MAD's gap-toothed mascot and raising laughs when she reminded the
audience of his catchphrase: "What, me worry?"'

-Hillary Clinton

When it comes to double standards, hypocrisy and unparalleled chutzpah, Hillary Clinton is a living legend. She, as a victim of the vast right wing conspiracy, is always among the first to decry the 'tone' in Washington, DC. Funny, but I never hear Bush making crude personal jokes about, oh I don't know, Hillary's thunder thighs, for example.

One thing the Clinton White House perfected was decrying the very tactics they were using. Remember the 'politics of personal destruction' that they were whining about as they destroyed Ken Starr and all of the women who came forward against Bubba.

Let's put aside her personal insults to the President, which played very well in Europe by the way, thanks for that senator.

London Telegraph: Bush is like comic book idiot, says Mrs Clinton

Let's focus instead on the substance of her remarks.

As Clinton gears up for a Senate re-election race in New York next year and a possible White House presidential bid in 2008, her attacks on Bush have become sharper.

In her speech Sunday, she accused the president of damaging the economy by overspending while giving tax cuts to the rich.

"There has not yet been one net job created in the last four years," she continued

In order to have a 'sharp attach', don't you need the facts on your side? Damage to the economy? Hello? We have the most vibrant, steady economy anywhere in the industrialized world. The 'one net job' line is an outright lie. Sure lots of jobs were lost during Bush's first term, he inhereted a burst stock market bubble, a recession and a fully formed, fat and happy global terrorist network that was coiled and ready to strike. Oh yeah, and September 11th happened. Despite all that, enough jobs were created by November 2004 so that Bush was not, as John Kerry and the Dems claimed daily, the first president since Herbert Hoover to lose jobs on his watch. Ms. Clinton is off by more than a half million jobs, at least. Sigh.

Here are the facts,

  • Unemployment is at 5%, a four year low
  • New jobs are being added at a rate of 160,000 per month so far this year
  • The economy is growing at 3.5-4.5% clip, perfect for steady growth
  • Defecit is shrinking faster than expected
  • Tax receipts into the Treasury are up 15% over a year ago, thanks to the tax cuts
  • Interest rates are at all time lows
  • Inflation is low
  • Home ownership is at record high levels

Democrats live by a script of comebacks and one liners. This economy is amazing and they still try to talk it down. They have no credibility anymore.

The modern day Dem party is so bereft of fresh ideas and a coherent agenda that they are left with only shrill ad hominem attacks and trite shibboleths right out of teh Dem-Socialist playbook. Remember, the facts don't matter to this party. Only the nature of the accusation is important. The accusations (Bush's tax cuts were "irresponsible" and ony benefited the "rich,") even though totally debunked by a plethora of empirical economic data, get reported by thier witting allies in the elite media ad nasium without an objective analysis of the authenticity of her assertions, and presto enough lemmings actually believe that we are becoming a third world country- instead of the most prosperous and generous nation in history. The Dem Party is now in such disarray that all they can do is iterate the same banal slogans and hope that enough idiots will become as angry and fearful as they themselves are. Desperate times call for desperate measures. When you have been unmasked for the anti-American Communists that this one time respectable party has become, facts become superfluous and inconsequential. Her comments demonstrate the innanity of trying to make "nice" with them. If I'm Bush and the GOP, I'm going for the jugular and putting this party out of business for good. If Bush and the GOP would act boldly (close the borders, ship all illegals back to thier country of origin, deport all muslims who are not permanent residents of our country, nominate the most conservative judges possible- instead of making concessions before the battle even begins, and pushing agressively for indivvidual health savings accounts, retirement accounts, and parental school choice, they would pick up even more seats in the 06 midterms and win in a landslide in the 08' pers elections. Memo to Dubya, quit playing patty-cake and be the war time stud we elected you to be!!! Hillary and that drunken murderer Teddy will never be your friend, quit trying to be theirs!
