Previously supportive New Hampshire paper drops the "L" bomb on Hillary.

Hillary Clinton is a Liar.

From the most recent editorial of the New Hampshire Union-Leader, a paper that was previously supportive of Hillary's campaign...
----------------------------

Hillary's word: It's worth nothing


COURTING VOTERS in Iowa and New Hampshire, last August Sen. Hillary Clinton signed a pledge not to "campaign or participate" in the Michigan or Florida Democratic primaries. She participated in both primaries and is campaigning in Florida. Which proves, again, that Hillary Clinton is a liar.

Clinton kept her name on the Michigan ballot when others removed theirs, she campaigned this past weekend in Florida, and she is pushing to seat Michigan and Florida delegates at the Democratic National Convention. The party stripped those states of delegates as punishment for moving up their primary dates.

"I will try to persuade my delegates to seat the delegates from Michigan and Florida," Clinton said last week, after the New Hampshire primaries and Iowa caucuses were safely over.

Clinton coldly and knowingly lied to New Hampshire and Iowa. Her promise was not a vague statement. It was a signed pledge with a clear and unequivocal meaning.

She signed it thinking that keeping the other candidates out of Michigan and Florida was to her advantage, but knowing she would break it if that proved beneficial later on. It did, and she did.

New Hampshire voters, you were played for suckers 

----------------------------

So, here's an interesting question... If none of the candidates can gain a delegate majority by the time of the party's convention, could this kind of behavior backfire on Hillary, as delegates that had previously gone her way desert her in droves?!

Hillary Clinton's multiple personality disorder.

Or a closer look at Hillary's latest camoflauge flip-flops.

During President Bush's "State of the Union" address, when the president said "Ladies and gentlemen, some may deny the surge is working, but among terrorists there is no doubt..." Hillary Clinton sprang to her feet in enthusiastic applause.

Please note, this is the same Hillary Clinton who essentially called General Petraeus a liar and who said that the Surge wasn't working:

"Despite what I view as your rather extraordinary efforts in your testimony both yesterday and today, I think that the reports that you provide to us really require the willing suspension of disbelief

In any of the metrics that have been referenced in your many hours of testimony, any fair reading of the advantages and disadvantages accruing post-surge, in my view, end up on the downside."

So, basically, Hillary's position is that she:

- wants to start pulling troops out of Iraq immediately
- supports a prolonged U.S. deployment in Iraq to combat terrorism.
- is strongly opposed to the surge, which she described as a "failed policy" premised on data that requires "a willing suspension of disbelief".
- proudly stands in support of the surge.
- just recently said the surge "inspires skepticism for a good reason."
refused to criticize the MoveOn.org ad referring to Petraeus as Betrayus.
- specifically cited General Petraeus' experience and leadership when he was appointed to his position.
- has a track record for supporting preemptive war and has criticized those who have "nothing but derision about nation building".
criticized George Bush for breaking his campaign pledge not to get involved in nation-building.
  
So, all and all, she's quite clear about which side of the argument she's in favor of.... whichever one is most politically advantageous at that particular second.

The Florida Primary?!

This is a test of the Florida Democratic primary. 

The party leaders in your area, in violation of Democratic national authorities, have developed this unofficial primary to try to cut ahead of other states in the event of an actual election. 

For the next sixty seconds, you will hear a high-pitched whining tone that will let you know that your fellow Floridians just threw their votes away, followed by a collective yawn from the rest of America. 

Remember, this is only a test.

*WHHI-I-I-I-I-NNNE!*

*
yawn*

This has been a test of the Florida Democratic primary. If this had been an actual primary, you would have been instructed to vote one week later at one of the polling stations in your area.

This concludes this test of the Florida Democratic Primary.

When asked about campaigning in Florida, even though she had agreed not to, Hillary pounded the podium, wagged her finger, and yelled "I DID NOT HAVE CAMPAIGN RELATIONS WITH THAT STATE!"
