G.W. Bush and Hillary Clinton

*

Something in Common

"This is an impressive crowd. The haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base." (G.W. Bush,Al Smith Dinner, Waldorf Astoria 10/19/2000).

No surprise; it was to be expected from Bush. And his base did send him to the White House....twice. The surprise was reading about Hillary Clinton's appearance on the O'Reilly Factor.

The Huffington Post April 30, 2008
The War Goes On

Haven't come across any statement by Hillary Clinton about the fifth anniversary of the war in Iraq. She was a supporter of the war and would like that record to disappear. Dana Milbank in the Post has a report about Bush's avoidance of the anniversary. Like Hillary Clinton's vote for the war, images of the large banner, "Mission Accomplished", cannot be buried and forgotten.
  • Now, after half a trillion dollars and the deaths of 4,000 troops and tens of thousands of Iraqis, the president's spin doctors have waved the white flag of surrender over the USS Abraham Lincoln episode. "President Bush is well aware that the banner should have been much more specific, and said mission accomplished for these sailors who are on this ship on their mission," White House press secretary Dana Perino told reporters this week.
  • That excuse didn't pass the laugh test yesterday morning, when a CNN reporter asked Murtha about it. Murtha shook his head and gave a disgusted sigh as audience members chuckled. "It's almost beyond my belief that they would think anybody would believe that," he finally said. "I'm sure the White House didn't tell [her] to say that," he added, charitably. "I'm sure that was offhand."

  • Even John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, piled on. "I thought it was wrong at the time," he said -- an effective tactic until the Democrats dug up footage of him from 2003 supporting the Mission Accomplished message.
