Lipstick on a Pig? Still a Pig

"I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

-- Hillary Clinton's now infamous "sniper fire" and oft previously repeated whopper. The claim was proven false when video news footage of her visit to Bosnia surfaced. No sniper fire, no running with her head down. Only children and meaningless officials present.

"There is no crisis to be dealt with or managed when you are first lady. You don't get that kind of experience by being married to a commander in chief."
-- Obama adviser Susan Rice mocking Hillary Clinton's claim of foreign policy experience during the heated Democratic presidential primary last March.

"What exactly is this foreign policy experience? Was she negotiating treaties? Was she handling crises? The answer is no."

-- Barack Obama, also during the bitter Democratic primary in March.

Obama Team Repackaging Clinton After Campaign Digs

WASHINGTON -- It wasn't too long ago that Barack Obama and his advisers were tripping over one another to tear down Hillary Rodham Clinton's foreign policy credentials. She was dismissed as a commander in chief wanna-be who did little more than sip tea and make small talk with foreign leaders during her days as first lady.

"What exactly is this foreign policy experience?" Obama said mockingly of the New York senator. "Was she negotiating treaties? Was she handling crises? The answer is no."

That was in March, when Clinton was Obama's sole remaining rival for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Now, Clinton is on track to become Obama's secretary of state.

And, unsurprisingly, the sniping at her foreign policy credentials is a thing of the past.

Obama adviser William Daley over the weekend said Clinton would be "a tremendous addition to this administration. Tremendous."

Senior adviser David Axelrod called Clinton a "demonstrably able, tough, brilliant person."

Last spring, though, Clinton was targeted with a steady stream of criticism via conference call, e-mail and campaign-trail digs from the Obama camp, all aimed at shredding her self-portrait as an experienced and confident leader on the international stage. Some of those doing the sniping will be taking up key positions _ most likely along with Clinton _ in the new Obama administration.

Liberal hypocrisy time and time again in full display as Clinton retreads and Obama rookies intermarry during the president-elect's
redneck wedding transition. Talk about the worst of both worlds!

Um, what's your point Paleofraud? I think this type of thing happens every election with both parties. In the primaries you tear your "opponents" to shreds, then become best friends with them after the primaries are over. Again, what's your point?

P.S. I know you won't actually let this comment get posted. Thought suppression was made popular by the Nazis - that's all I'm sayin!

I wish I could feel sorry for you, Charlie, I really do. I only post your comment here so you can feel acknowledged in some small way. You do realize I am under no obligation to post your pitiful comments, don't you? But then again, that's probably another point that you fail to get.

This type of thing does happen often after every election. But I thought the Obamabuddha was not your ordinary human politician and that he was going to bring about ... what is it again ... CHANGE?

You need to ask yourself why you keep coming to Paleocon Strikes! again and again. It makes you so upset and everything. You seem even more obsessed with my blog than Gary Mullah-Schulz, the Minneapolis grasshopper. Do you have it bookmarked as well?

Take a break from Paleocon Strikes! Read a book. I am reading a couple myself. Go to a movie. I want to see "Transporter 3" this weekend. Step away. Get a life of some kind.
