proudtobeGOP. Do you understand the concept or use of irony at all, or do you fall into its laughable usage without a clue? You sign your posts with this monicker and quote these particular "sources" as experts on Hilary Clinton and then pontificate about objectivity. Actually this isn't really ironic: it's pathetically stupid, but please don't expect us to play along with your DUMB and DUMBER charades. You people are so paranoid about a smart, hardworking, totally rational lady becoming President that I'd imagine you're on the verge of ordering diapers. Get used to it because she's a great candidate for exactly all of the opposite reasons that George W. has been a total disaster.

Why is the Washington Post so obsessed with the Clintons marriage. Why aren't you applying this level of scrutiny to Rudy Guiliani who has a history of serial adultery and is on his third marriage to the "other women"? Is it because he is a republican and you are afraid to go after republicans? Your paper was a mouthpiece for Kenneth Starr for a decade and you still can't let go of your hatred of the Clintons. And why is it wrong for a woman to be ambitious? Isn't Rudy ambitious? Isn't Biden ambitious? Why is it a negative thing for Hillary to be ambitious?

While some fans of Hillary insist on burying their (pink) heads in the sand with regards to her dubious and liberal record, the facts are there for all to see if one will only look.

Buchanan's book relies heavily on Hillary's own words, the observations of Democrats, and the words of the liberal media to make informed judgements about her.

In Hillary's own autobiography, Living History, she depicts herself as painfully insecure and although she has used arrogance and an air of superiority among other things to hide and disguise her lack of confidence, it has played a significant role in determining who she is today.

These books are not all some unfair attack from the vast right-wing conspiracy. They amount to nothing more than objective scrutiny like every other candidate gets.

Remember, it was not just Bill Safire who called Hillary a "congenital liar"; this same observation was made by Maureen Dowd of the New York Times and David Geffen, a Hollywood producer and former friend of Bill's -- that would be the Left, the Right, and a family friend.

"Hillary's extreme makeover is about making her appear moderate in both style and policy. She is neither. So while she may talk about a balanced budget and "pay as you go" she votes to increase the size of government at nearly every change she gets.."

a whole page of comments and no mention of what accusations are actually contained within said books... well. i keep coming back to hillary's supposedly not reading the NIE before supporting the invasion - and said NIE (as we now know) more or less accurately predicted the problems which have arisen as a result of the u.s. action. this is not the same as the vince foster accusation, nor is it sexist, but it strikes me as both more credible and more serious (in someone who would be president) than the other items. and lyle, i am neither envious nor jealous of hillary. and i am definitely voting democratic - i just don't want it to be for her. let's talk about issues, ok?

Radical Patroit: I have not read any of the "Garbarge" you refer to and have no intention to.

Posted by: lylepink | May 30, 2007 2:07 PM | Report abuse

Typically, "lylepink" pontificates on what the two books are and are about, and then says she hasn't read them nor has any intention of reading them. How very Bush-like to make such a comment!

The comments of "tupilip2," on the other hand, are right on the intelligent money--"the idea that Hillary's past misdeeds can be dismissed as "old news' is pure hogwash-spin, propaganda and wishful thinking on the part of her campaign."

If you don't trust the newest stuff, you can always find the keys to her true character in the recent "The Truth about Hillary" by Edward Klein and in "American Evita" by Christopher Andersen. Lest you think that I swallow just any book that puts Hillary in her true, repulsive light, I would say that Peggy Noonan's book "The Case Against Hillary Clinton" is definitely a right-wing Rovian-attack-dog useless book. [It does contain its share of truths, however!]

In all cases, it requires that problematic effort that most of the half of America that does vote cannot or will not do--THINK. "Most people would rather die than think--and most do."

kissofdeath: I did not state what you are trying to suggest. You will find by most polls/surveys the working, outside the home moms, tend to vote for the dems and the stay at homes vote the other way. This goes back many years and fits the "Keep them pregnant and barefoot" description that are held by many men who fear a strong woman and these women tend to be dominated, to a degree, by their husbands. This is only another FACT the opponents of Hillary will try to use, as you have, when they are in the minority of women voters. Hillary leads in all age groups of women, and I was only pointing out what to expect in the way of distorting FACTS by her opponents.

Since neither of these books has been released yet, I am suspicious that only the most controversial and unflattering excerpts have been released-something like the short clips from soon to be released movies. Anything to spur sales!
However, the idea that Hillary's past misdeeds can be dismissed as "old news' is pure hogwash-spin, propaganda and wishful thinking on the part of her campaign. They may be in the past but they are pungent character clues. She may have a new patina but she is still the same old Hillary underneath it all. Are we to judge her by her current words or by her past deeds? How about the way she treats the "little people" who surround her-the ones who guard, clean and carry for her? How has she treated them? Will someone ask her why her White House help had to avert their eyes when meeting her? What was the idea behind that? Only she knows the answer. One would think she were in the Royal Household where this is common practice but this is America and she claims to represent the "little people".

lylepink just uttered the kiss of death for Hillary. Once a debate gets down to stay-at-home moms vs working-outside-the-home moms, it's stuck there forever in an unattractive morass. Just look at what happens to the W.P. "On Balance" blog. What a nightmare. If stay-at-home moms are against Hillary, she's dead.

Paul Wolfowitz may have been ousted from his post at the World Bank, but a free-speaking GOP lawmaker has an idea to keep the so-called "architect" of the Iraq War from standing in the unemployment line.

"I would like to suggest...that maybe we give Paul Wolfowitz a new job and send him over [to Iraq] as mayor," said Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., "since the neocons got us in over there."

As deputy secretary of defense from 2000 to 2005, Wolfowitz helped develop the strategy and public rationale for the invasion and occupation of Iraq. He publicly stated that coalition troops would be greeted as liberators, and the nation of Iraq would be largely capable of financing its own rebuilding through oil revenues.

Wolfowitz announced his resignation as president of the World Bank last week after a bank panel found he had violated the terms of his contract by setting up a lucrative pay and promotion package for his girlfriend, Shaha Riza.

Jones is best known as the one-time staunch Iraq war supporter who called for the House of Representatives' cafeteria to rename its French fries "freedom fries" to protest France's unwillingness to join the operation.

The cafeteria assented, going so far as to rename their French toast "freedom toast."

In 2005, Jones switched his position on both the war and the fries. Earlier this month, he was one of the House Republicans who voted in favor of a Democratic proposal to bring U.S. troops home from Iraq by September 2008.

The phrase "Verschärfte Vernehmung" is German for "enhanced interrogation". Other translations include "intensified interrogation" or "sharpened interrogation". It's a phrase that appears to have been concocted in 1937, to describe a form of torture that would leave no marks, and hence save the embarrassment pre-war Nazi officials were experiencing as their wounded torture victims ended up in court. The methods are indistinguishable from those described as "enhanced interrogation techniques" by the president.

As you can see from the Gestapo memo, moreover, the Nazis were adamant that their "enhanced interrogation techniques" would be carefully restricted and controlled, monitored by an elite professional staff, of the kind recommended by Charles Krauthammer, and strictly reserved for certain categories of prisoner. At least, that was the original plan.

Also: the use of hypothermia, authorized by Bush and Rumsfeld, was initially forbidden. 'Waterboarding" was forbidden too, unlike that authorized by Bush. As time went on, historians have found that all the bureaucratic restrictions were eventually broken or abridged. Once you start torturing, it has a life of its own.

The "cold bath" technique - the same as that used by Bush against al-Qahtani in Guantanamo - was, according to professor Darius Rejali of Reed College, pioneered by a member of the French Gestapo by the pseudonym Masuy about 1943. The Belgian resistance referred to it as the Paris method, and the Gestapo authorized its extension from France to at least two places late in the war, Norway and Czechoslovakia. That is where people report experiencing it.

In Norway, we actually have a 1948 court case that weighs whether "enhanced interrogation" using the methods approved by president Bush amounted to torture. The proceedings are fascinating, with specific reference to the hypothermia used in Gitmo, and throughout interrogation centers across the field of conflict. The Nazi defense of the techniques is almost verbatim that of the Bush administration...

Why do you even bother with this lowlife gossipy Drudge sh*t, CC?I guess you aren't much better yourself. Too bad.

Another day, another cheap rightwing attack on Hillary Clinton. What else is new? Tell me, do either of these 'books' tell about Clinton's 'conspiracy' to kill Vince Foster? Or maybe she pulled the trigger herself. After all, according to republicans, she is Satan incarnate.

Mark in Austin: This is but another hit job on Hillary. Notice how the age group that like her the least is the same age as Hillary. This fits the "Envy/Jealous" factor I have mentioned several times in that mainly those who oppose her are the ones that did not choose to be a working mom outside the home. One of the books, by two authors, Have been shot down, and the one by the other is simply a rehash with a little more spin. I have not read them and will not.

First, I watched your panel discussion. There I learned that the three of you had not read the two books you were discussing.

I have not, either.
