Hillary Clinton was heckled in a speech before 6,500 people in upstate NY. While her response drew her a standing ovation among the highly supportive crowd, it be-speaks a hypocrisy that she, like Obama, will never be called to task over, by the mainstream media.
Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton turned the tables on a heckler Wednesday, in an effort to make a point about the need to find common ground to solve the nation’s problems.During a speech at the University at Buffalo, Clinton first ignored the man’s shouts as she spoke of Buffalo as a model for problem-solving through cooperation.“Because we can’t move from crisis to crisis, we have to be willing to come together as citizens to focus on the kind of future we want,” she said. As the shouts grew louder from an upper section of bleachers, she added, “which doesn’t include yelling. It includes sitting down and talking.”
Hillary was not afraid to bash Obama during her presidential run of 2008. And her husband has been a frequent attack dog on her behalf in the subsequent years so she didn't have to sully herself with attacks but could them occur nonetheless. In a cynical effort to prove herself to be in the middle of the political spectrum she's bashed the left as well. She's bashed the media as not being up to the standards of Al Jazeera.
Most hypocritically, Clinton herself has attacked her political opponents recently in a moment as much do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do as we have seen in a long time;
Hillary Clinton has accused Republicans of pursuing "scorched earth" politics at her first campaign event in five years, raising hopes among supporters that she is preparing to run for US president in 2016.At a rally in Virginia on Saturday night, the former secretary of state warned that the Republican Party's Right wing was determined to "hijack this great experiment" of America.She urged the state's voters to elect her friend Terry McAuliffe as their next governor and "lead the way of turning from divisive politics and getting back to common sense and common ground"."When politicians choose scorched earth over common ground, when they operate in what I call the evidence-free zone with ideology trumping everything else, we see that families in Virginia and across the country have felt the consequences," said Clinton.Democrats such as Clinton accuse Tea Party conservatives of sabotaging the US political process by refusing to compromise on their opposition to President Barack Obama's agenda.
She wants the freedom to attack or demonize her opposition but wants them to sit down and compromise? That's not compromise or common ground - it's capitulation.
