Hillary's Hypocrisy
Posted by Michael Cohen

On the heels of my last post - this is truly classic. Here's what Hillary had to say about Obama's recent comment regarding nukes in Pakistan:

I don't believe that any president should make any blanket statements with respect to the use or non-use of nuclear weapons.

Yet, here's what she said in April 2006 in regard to a question about using nuclear weapons to prevent Iran from developing its own nuke program:

I would certainly take nuclear weapons off the table.

Clear and unambiguous hypocrisy you might think, but not so says HRC spokesperson, Phil Singer:

Singer said the circumstances for her remarks last year were different than the situation Obama faced.

She was asked to respond to specific reports that the Bush-Cheney administration was actively considering nuclear strikes on Iran even as it refused to engage diplomatically . . .She wasn't talking about a broad hypothetical nor was she speaking as a presidential candidate. Given the saber-rattling that was coming from the Bush White House at the time, it was totally appropriate and necessary to respond to that report and call it the wrong policy.

Hmm. That sure sounds like a distinction without a difference. But actually, Singer is right there is a difference . . . using nukes to stop Iran from developing a bomb is a but nutty, but at least defensible; using a nuclear bomb to kill Osama Bin Laden . . . not so much.

Can you imagine if Obama made any statement that comes close to the hypocrisy that can only be described as Clintonian? Obama would be crucified by now. ...but wait...I don't hear anything. Exactly. You will hear nothing in the broadcast news and you will hear this story sparingly on the cable "news" networks. Why? I don't know, but I want others to notice the blatant bias in how Obama is being critiqued by every stress of a word. Hillary Clinton moves to New York with the help of Terry Mcauliffe(how ever you spell it)...she votes to authorize this war WITHOUT READING THE NIE for political calculations...she argues to stay the course...and now she wants to end the war, but she doesn't feel she made a mistake voting for the war. What a comedy! And yet the press panders to the irony of all ironies: her competence and experience...LOL.

Not only will the press not cover it, they will continue to reference Obama's foreign policy "gaffes" without mentioning this. It is just their coverage of her "evolving" position on Iraq.

This strikes me of more of the Circular Firing Squad we Democrats form as soon as we take our eyes off the bad guys. Why all the "Gotcha"?

I've also been thinking about the word "hypocracy". Obama spoke in Philadelphia about his adoring grandmother, telling the world that she had been afraid of the black men she had sometimes seen on the street, and that she had used racial stereotypes that caused him to cringe, so it was therefore ok that Obama could stand by Wright. He said he could not renounce Jeremiah Wright, whom he described as a part of himself. Yet six weeks later, a day after saying that the Wright's comments were overblown by the media, he called Wrights comments outrageous and renounced him out of political expediency.
