Thursday Hillary Bash - De-Americanization

Last week, RCP carried this video in which Hillary Clinton talks about the dangers of the world de-Americanizing (which she correctly deems as a bad. thing)  However if you listen to the context, her problem was with the risk of debt default and not with the root cause, rampant, voracious overspending and over-commitment to spending on the part of the U.S. government.

Quoting Chinese officials about de-Americanizing the world is in and of itself foolish - akin to asking the Fox if the hen house gate she be removed.  Undoubtedly Hillary will be applauded for standing up for America's values as a result of this, but in context, she really is simply demonstrating that if elected, she will continue to be a part of the problem.  She doesn't see the debt as the problem.  She seems an attempt to do something about it as the problem.  For her, America getting it's act together means that as president she not going to  want any fiscal dissent.
