Everybody Upset With Pastor Number Two or Hillary?

Hillary is the answer.

Don't ya just love it - anybody who can see type people would answer it's Hillary Rodham Clinton, her self, that's what people have a gut feeling if not a direct observation by seeing her for who she really is. She's certainly displayed who she is and what she'll say and do to claim her spot in the history books.

Pfleger Apologizes For Mocking Clinton

MSNBC's Morning Joe with Mika B. and Mike Barnacle co-hosting with Willie Geiss, too (and Joe Scarborough is blissfully for us absent which while we wish him well on the birth of a baby we hope the network execs can him for hypocricsy) put Chris Matthews on the spot this morning and asked him about Trinity Church guest preacher, Father Michael Pfleger.

Matthews: ...Afraid a Baptist got in the room somehow... it's spoof... sarcasm... except for the white part... Hillary clinton doesn't think she's entitled because she's white, says Matthews... pandering on the issue... sarcasm the boo-hoo part... Matthews asks would Michelle Obama running for President, a black woman have gotten this far... the hardest thing to separate out is the Clintons... they have their own baggage...

We agree. The Pastor was spoofing the Clintons. He was inaccurate to claim clinton believes she's entitled to the nomination because she is white.

No, Hillary Clinton believes she is entitled to the nomination because she is Hillary Clinton. She believes she is entitled because she is a woman.

Her claim of sexism in the contest for the Democratic nomination for President was debunked even before the woman began her official campaign.

Over a year ago, she was considered the frontrunner, no matter who ran against her in the Democratic Primaries across the United States.

Early on after she announced her candidacy, Clinton was the favored frontrunner. Polling showed that status, but along with it, her negatives continued.

Recall, it wasn't until after Super Tuesday and Barack Obama won something like a dozen contests in a row, that Obama became the frontrunner.

Debates with all initial candidates included before Super Tuesday in February were clearly indicative Hillary Clinton was considered the candidate to beat.

So her claim there's been sexism against her is debunked by her early wins and her clear frontrunner status at that time.

After Super Tuesday, everything began to change.

Somebody has to prod Hillary to the realization she is creating for herself a caricature of herself.

That's why pundits can over and over replay this pastor's show and claim everybody is upset with the pastor, but really everybody is becoming upset with Hillary Clinton. Few in the Democratic Party will nudge her too hard. The woman thinks she deserves the Presidency of the United States, even if she doesn't win the majority of committed delegates, the popular vote including the caucus states who don't announce the popular vote but distribute delegates based on it (which were won by Obama), and even if she doesn't anywhere near approach whatever the final number of all delegates are necessary to claim the nomination of the Democrat Party.

She's now 200 delegates behind Barack Obama in committed delegates and last week Obama could claim he'd garnered an absolute majority in that category of delegates.

Even if Clinton were to win all of the committed delegates in the three remaining contests, she could not reach an absolute majority as there are not enough remaining committed delegates for her to accomplish that.

We haven't veered from our assessment of Hillary Clinton for the decades we've observed her actions from afar.

She's been caught during this campaign in a few outright lies including the Bosnia trip where she claimed she and her daughter came under sniper fire. Her explanations about that will never satisfy us. No journalist asked Clinton why she would knowingly put her daughter in harm's way on a trip to Bosnia in the first place. She's never had to directly answer if she thought she was in danger facing sniper fire why she had her daughter by her side on the ground, let alone why she even alighted the plane if indeed the pair had to wear flak jackets at some point.

The verbal firestorm will never decrease from those upset with Hillary Clinton and her lies. We wonder whether she will return to her Senate seat and face defeat the next election by an electorate who has been awakened to the true character of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

spoofs and sacasm are the least of punishments for HRC.

Hillary Clinton was caught in more than one lie, but one sticks out for its neglect by the mainstream media.

Meanwhile when the first female Speaker of the House of Representatives indicates the candidate with the majority of committed delegates will receive the nomination, there isn't much room to claim sexism from colleagues, either.

Mythbusting Hillary: Experience (SCHIP Edition)

...But privately, some lawmakers and staff members are fuming over what they see as Clinton's exaggeration of her role in developing SCHIP, including her campaign ads claiming she "helped create" the program. The irritation has grown since Nov. 1, when Clinton - along with fellow senators and presidential candidates Barack Obama, Chris Dodd, and John McCain - missed a Senate vote to extend the SCHIP program, which was approved without the votes of those lawmakers.

[ … ]

McDonough, a Democrat who has not endorsed a presidential candidate, also said it was Kennedy who developed the SCHIP idea after that meeting. "I don't recall any signs of Mrs. Clinton's engagement," McDonough said. "I'm sure she was behind the scenes, engaged in lobbying, but it is demonstrably not the case" that she was driving the effort, he said...

Hillary and the SChip program

Hillary Clinton's Lies
Sun Mar 16, 2008 12:56 AM EDT
Hillary has also continually taken credit for getting SCHIP passed. She says it is an initiative that she "helped to start." In reality, the Clinton Administration fought the SCHIP effort which was being advocated by Senators Edward Kennedy and Orrin Hatch, because of fears that it would derail a bigger budget bill. Several lawmakers and staff have stated that Hillary Clinton had no role in helping to write the SCHIP legislation, which was modeled on a similar program in Massachusetts. According to Hatch, "The White House wasn't for it. We really roughed them up." Hatch said of Clinton, "I do like her, we all care about children. But does she deserve credit for SCHIP? No - Teddy does, but she doesn't."

Hillary's List of Lies
By Dick Morris

The USA Today/Gallup survey clearly explains why Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) is losing. Asked whether the candidates were "honest and trustworthy," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) won with 67 percent, with Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) right behind him at 63. Hillary scored only 44 percent, the lowest rating for any candidate for any attribute in the poll.

Hillary simply cannot tell the truth. Here's her scorecard:

New York Post
From Bad to Verse March 31, 2008 -- SARAJEVO, Bosnia - The Bosnian girl who famously read a poem to Hillary Rodham Clinton during her 1996 visit to the war-torn country is shocked - and her countrymen infuriated - that the former first lady claimed to have dodged sniper fire that day.

Emina Bicakcic, now 20 and studying to become a doctor, told The Post she stood on the tarmac at the air base in Tuzla, greeted Clinton and even had time to share the lines of verse she'd written - all without fear of attack from an unseen enemy.

"I was surprised when I heard this," Bicakcic said, referring to Clinton's assertion that she braved snipers upon landing, ducking and sprinting to military vehicles.

Other Bosnians said they had one of two reactions to Clinton's debunked action-hero account of her visit: laughter or anger.

"It's an exaggeration," said former acting President Ejup Ganic, who was present during Clinton's visit. "No one was firing. There were no shots fired."

Sema Markovic, 22, a student, said she has long respected Hillary as a strong leader but was angered by her remarks.

"It is an ugly thing for a politician to tell lies,' she said. "We had problems for years, and I don't like when someone lies about them. It makes us look bad."

Clinton has since admitted she "misspoke."
