Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, August 18, 2014

"Hillary works for Goldman Sachs and likes war, otherwise I like Hillary," a former Bill Clinton aide told me sardonically. First, he was referring to her cushy relationships with top Wall Street barons and her $200,000 speeches with the criminal enterprise known as Goldman Sachs, which played a part in crashing the U.S. economy in 2008 and burdening taxpayers with costly bailouts. Second, he was calling attention to her war hawkish foreign policy.

Last week, Hillary-The-Hawk emerged, once again, with comments to The Atlanticattacking Obama for being weak and not having an organized foreign policy. She was calling Obama weak despite his heavy hand in droning, bombing and intervening during his Presidency. While Obama is often wrong, he is hardly a pacifist commander. It's a small wonder that since 2008, Hillary-The-Hawk has been generally described as, in the words of the New York Times journalist Mark Landler, "more hawkish than Mr. Obama."

"Moreover, the former Secretary of State ended her undistinguished tenure in 2013 with an unremitting record of militarizing a Department that was originally chartered over 200 years ago to be the expression of American diplomacy. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton made far more bellicose statements than Secretary of Defense Robert Gates did. Some career Foreign Service Officers found her aggressive language unhelpful, if not downright hazardous to their diplomatic missions."

She seems to be even more hawkish than Dick Cheney or Vlad. She makes me nervous.
I'm afraid she'll answer the 3am phone call.

At least she's not shirtless, though.

Shirtless Cheney probably isn't intimidating enough to think he's going to shoot you in the face.

No one could have predicted who posted this Hillary Hate thread, rofl!

btw, be sure to thank Ralph Nader for W.

www.washingtonsblog.com

Bernie Sanders said that is exactly why he didn't vote for Nader.

But then, Puritopians would rather forego the money necessary to win a national election in the days of CU than take it and still promote Dems like Elizabeth Warren.

Who, btw, supports Hillary Clinton.

I pity that fool.

Elizabeth Warren is a freshman senator, correct? There are 99 other senators, so why is one freshman senator's endorsement worth the entire planet to one poster here?

It seems to me reading this. Elizabeth's support for Hillary would be forced upon her.

www.thedailybeast.com

Were she to run, Warren would face enormous challenges, mainly in that Hillary Clinton remains historically popular with Democrats. But the fact that the network of Democratic insiders who helped Warren raise a record $42 million for her 2012 Senate bid want her to stand down in deference to Clinton should all but end speculation that she will be a candidate.

"I think she is outstanding. She is articulate. She is persuasive. She can hit a piece of -------- from a hundred yards away," said Victor A. Kovner, a Manhattan lawyer who hosted Warren for a fundraiser way back in 2011. But, he added, "I will be supporting Hillary in 2016. No question about that."

In other words, the DNC has chosen the nominee, Carlyle Clinton, and no challenger will get a dime.

They don't give a flying Frick. The DNC and the RNC drink the same putrid water. It's tragic.

Hillary heard Elizabeth warren had a forked tongue. Now she's intrigued. Hubba Hubba

See whut Ah mean?

No one is Perfect Enough for the Puritopians.

-There are 99 other senators,

Most of the the liberal ones have already come out for Hillary.

There are so few Puritopians, it hardly matters.

I'd rather be a Puritopian than a Clintonian. When Carlyle gets the U.S. involved in multiple foreign interventions, the Puritopians will say "we told you so".

That Hillary is still a hawk after her disastrous performance as Secretary of State shows what a terrible person she really is. She's too full of herself to care about all the people her failed policies have harmed and continue to harm. You have to be a real POS not to learn from your mistakes when they end up killing other people.

I was referring to Libya on the whole, Scarecrow. But you don't want to talk about that.

What is funny is that even if I was referring to Benghazi, it would be more relevant than the baby talk and fear mongering that comprises 95% of your posts.

The topic of this thread is Hillary's warmongering and failed tour as secretary of state. Guess no Clintonians want to defend her.

Hilary will never be a POTUS.

but if you want a Republican to be president, please be sure to nominate her.
