“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”.

Uhh.. look at me I am a fighter. I am tough. I have been to War Zone so I know how it is there. And hence I am best prepared to lead this country.

That is the bullshit from Hillary Clinton. 

You can hear her tell this lie and make up this bullshit on this video. :http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=T3depGF5E-0&feature=related 

You can also see what actually happened on her trip to Bosnia in 1996. She was greeted by a girl.

Are you surprised by this? I am not. Clintons (bill and hillary) have a habit of telling americans straight-faced lies. They have gotten away with it for so long that most of their supporters should feel completely stupid.

What is alarming is the finesse and ease with which she made up the story. It is as if she is living in her fantsay world or playing a lot of Call of Duty.

This is serious and dangerous characteristic for someone who one day can have the nuclear button. Imagine. You have the briefcase with nuclear button and you live in this fantsay world. Suddenly there is attach on China or India or Canada. You know why? Because President Clinton in her fantsay, thought of China, India or even Canada bankrupting USA by their trade policies. So boom. There goes the missile.

All Clinton supporters need to pay heed to this. The way she lies and then causally just says that “I made a mistake, that proves I am human”, does not deserve to be the president. This callousness is very very dangerous.

It reflects poorly on this nation as it suggests that Secret Service did not prepare properly or American military could not protect the First Lady. That is insulting to the military and should rightfully draw critisim from military complex.

This callousness, fatnasy-ridden behaviour and lack of honesty should not be rewarded with a nomination.

Hillary: Lies are not mistakes! March 26, 2008

I cant believe it. How arrogant and ignorant you have to be to make tall claims and then when caught , just claim that “I made mistake. It just proves I am Human”.

REALLY?

Hillary Clinton, first , made talls claims from solving the Ireland Peace Puzzle to Facing sniper bullets in Bosnia to making all her records public. When that bluff was called by cold hard facts, even by her friends and campaign staff, she still defended it on various radiop shows. When the critisim hit the crescendo, she get defensive and laughs it out by saying it just proves she is human.

Even her biographer noticed her “extended truths” in her biography. (http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com/2008/03/26/hillary-clinton-truth-or-consequences/#more-470)

Does she think americans are that stupid that we cant see difference between a lie and a mistake? Why are there double standards then when it comes to some “stretches” made by others? Why does she raise all hell when Obama just “borrowed” some words from his pal?

Doesnt Hillary know that being former first lady, most of her records could be verified so she does not really have luxury of making any tall claims that she cant justify and which can be called up by others? Why does she have to make these tall and FALSE claims to forward her candidacy?

Do americans really want a President who has been elected on a bunch of lies? She is so insecure of her record then why is she portrayiing her national security credentials when she has none. Where is Bill Clinton when she needs one? Well, what can we expect from a former President who LIED to all americans on TV when he said coldly, “I did not have sexual relationship with that woman (Lewinsky)”. And in a few days he was caught.

No! We have had enough of Clinton lies and we cant afford another President in White House who stretches truth to forward his agenda. If this is the character shown by Hillary now, then why would she be elected? Obama atleast has integrity and courage to be honest. He might not have a lot of epxerience but he has courage of convictions. That is the first and minimum characteristics we need in our leader.

Clinton should be ashamed of making such lies and then standing tall on podiums making speeches which further highlight her lies. Americans supporting Clinton need to really take this seriously and think about the repercussions it can have if she gets elected.

And comeon with that “I am human” excuse. No it does not work. Especially when stakes are high. You dont go kill someone and say Oh I made a mistake. It just proves I am human so let me go. No. You are still going to jail if not on death row mister. Same applies to Clinton.

I suggest if Clinton has any decency left in her, then she just fold her cards and walk away. Let Obama and Mccain fight it out and she can watch from her TV. I dont think she should even campaign for Obama, should Obama gets the nomination.

BTW, John (Edwards), you should throw your support behind Obama before it is too late and he doesnt really need it. 

Clinton begging for votes now? March 11, 2008

This Dem race is getting rubbish by the hour. Sen Clinton is getting so desperate that she has started begging for votes. This means that she has given up the fight. But her ego and hunger for power is such that she is stopping to a level which has transcended all barriers of decent campaigning. She is trailing in delegate count, has won only half of states than Obama, but is telling people that she will maek Obama VP if she is nominated. So, basically saying  that you dont have to vote for Obama now, but I will give you a chance to vote for him because he will be on my ticket. This is absurd. This smacks of arrogance and indecency. Obama has more delegates, has won more primaries so he should be asking Clinton that he will consider her as VP candidate, and should not be vice a versa.

What are Clintons upto here? Well, they are trying to see if they can sway those voters who like Obama but also has given to Clintons mis-represented notion of how he is not ready. So Clintons (Both Bill and Hillary) are telling voters that he is not ready but you like him. Well, we are here to give you a choice. Get Hillary nominated and she will make him VP on her ticket. That way you get a person you dont like but you think she is experienced alongwith a guy you like but you have been told that he does not have experience. Wow. This is audacity of stupidity.

Bill Clinton is conveniently forgetting that when he was elected, he did not have any national security and crisis management experience either. Boy, should he not feel so lucky now. Hillary has yet to spell out what her real experience has been.  Her tall claims of bringing peace to Northern Ireland blew up on her face t oday when actual people who brokeered the peace in Northern Ireland and won Nobel Peace Prize for it have called her bluff. They have clearly told the media that she did not play any role and she should be ashamed of making such tall claims. 

Some members of Clinton Adminsitration has come forward with their comemnts on how she did not play a huge role in any major negotiations as a first lady, other than to pay courtsey visits to the countries. Please somebody tell Hillary that this is not what we mean by national security experience.

May be George W Bush thought the same when he was campaiging and he won. Get up America. Wake up and Listen. Dont buy Hillary’s tall claims about anything. Do you want to elect a person who makes tall claims while campaigning and is so naive? Do you want someone who is destined to disappoint us or even embarras us. Do we have to go thru this again after 8 years of Bush-Cheney?

That will be sad. At least we deserve a leader who is honest with us. 

Sen Clinton should be ashamed of herself and so is Bill.  But that is not enough to expect from them. If they had any decency they wouldnt be stoppingto these levels.

Where is that decent guy when we need one? I am talking about our Climate Czar Al Gore.

Will US follow Russia ? March 4, 2008

Welcome Mr. President Medvedev!(Putin*)

Dmitry Medveded, a longtime protege of Putin and his hand-picked successor was elected President of Russia. He said he will work closely with Putin. Putin will likely become Prime Minister and will run a pseudo government. Medvedev is presumed to be a puppet or controlled President.

Is this where USA is headed? Will US elect Hillary Clinton as President and hope that Bill Clinton will be the behind the scenes guy running the amdinistration? Isnt that what we have now anyways with Cheney running all policies and Bush is being just an ornament?

Cant we have a straight forward government and a leader who can represent USA? Why do we need to hide behind the non-transparent jockeys and make a mockery of democratic institution?

If this is the case then I am for electing a beautiful front end face like Paris Hilton and let Bill Clinton run the country. Why old Hillary?

Enough of this bulllshit. Let us have a president who can lead this country in a transparent and straight-forward way. It might not be perfect but after 8 years of Bush and Cheney, I think we will be okay with a less than perfect presidency. So long as we dont invade another country, lose more sons of this country and solve the problems in the homeland creatively, then the President would have done the job.

What are the fighter’s solutions? March 4, 2008

So, Sen. Clinton is telling Ohio and Texas that she is a fighter and that she has solutions for america. That She would have a “time-out” on NAFTA with Canada and Mexico. That she would get up and take a call at 3am when the world leaders call because she knows world leaders.

Do we need another “fighter” in white house who may be has solutions for america (we will talk about that in a lil bit) but starts making rest of the world nervous about trade? After 8 years of disastrous foreign policy, does USA need another president who starts making rest of peaceful world uneasy by talking about stopping trade? Does Sen. Clinton understand that just because she wants a temporary time out on trade, rest of the world cant stop its trade cycles. And how does US industry work with a time out?

Can we create a automobile parts plant in Ohio which can shell out auto parts for 5 years and then has to be shut down? Do you think such a plant can start recuperating its investments in 5 years?

Exactly such short-sighted foreign and trade policies have undone USA in the past. Rest of the world will laugh at such trade policies, if not revolt.  The american president need to benot only leader of USA but also a leader of the free world. I just dont think such kind of policies or even thinking can qualify Sen. Clinton for being the leader of free world.

I dont think the free world really relishes her use of negative words such as “fighter”. After Iraq invasion, the world takes such mentions very nervously. When US leaders take such an aggressive postures even while campaigning, the world is still listening and taking notes. Moreover her demonstration of her mood swings and emotional instability during the debates would raise new concerns over her such behaviour during her presidency. What is she gets frustrated and irritated with something Iran does and starts war with Iran? Can we afford that?

With the rise of China, resurgence of Russia and bad foreign relations over Iraq, USA cant afford to further isolate itself on world stage. We need a leader who can take more pragmatic approach and start talking first before he / she starts firing.

Now to the Solutions that Sen. Clinton mentions. She has started mentioning Solutions for America after she lost 11 straight primaries. So, why this sudden eureka over solutions? Has she suddenly realised problems of Americans? And what solutions she is talking about? More or less same as Obama has been talking about and moreover in very generic terms. Most solutions seems short-term stop gaps. 90 day freeze for adjustable mortgages, 5 year time out over NAFTA and so on. What about illegal immigration? what about economy? what about Iran? where are the solutions? Where is the money coming from for her Universal health care? We are still waiting.

I believe america’s solutions are so grim that they are going to need creative and brave  ideas. It is also going  to need a strong will to forge alliances within congress, senate and across the industry to push these. Sen. Clinton’s polarizing persona and overly aggresive tones will prohibit her from doing so. 

So Ms. Fighter, how about  

Sen. Clinton and National Security March 2, 2008

The latest tactic of Sen. Clinton is tom toming her national security “experience and credentials” and attacking Sen. Obama that he wont be a good Commander-in-Chief. She even put out an ad asking americans who would you want in white house when there is a problem in the world so that your kids are safe. Interesting. Got to applaud who ever comes with these ideas in her campaign. She is also adding all the living ex-generals in her”endorse me now” category.

This is really amusing stuff. She is using same tactic that Karl Rove used for Bush. These are the same tactics she complained against repeatedly. She is using a scare card with americans by lifting a trick from Republican playbook. Is Karl Rove her new Campaign Manager or is he her new political consultant?

She also mentions who would you have in white  house at 3 am in morning, someone who knows world leaders or someone who doesnt? Now Sen Clinton, if you think you know all world leaders how come you could not name the new puppet of Putin in Russia? Did Putin not tell about his plans when he called you over the weekend?

Clinton has no record on successfull national security. She voted yes on Iraq war spending bill. If she knew the war was wrong idea then why did she vote for it? She claims based on the fact it was sincere decision. Well, Hillary, you have to make decisions based on some facts and then some on the analysis on current and future threats. Some others use threat modeling or analysis or strategy to evaluate the decision-making process. And then good leaders exercise a sound judgement because no matter how many facts you have, leadership is about sound judgement. Now Sen. Clinton , you did not demonstrate that judgement , did you? So what is the difference between you and GWB (George W Bush)?

 Atleast Bush stands up and owns up his decision. But Sen. Clinton, you demonstrate your opportunitistic and political savvy by swinging to popular sentiment. If today Iraq was going as planned and everything was well, you would tom-tom your vote of Yes on Iraq as a good judgement, wouldnt you?

During her husband’s tenure, she just travelled to the countries she wanted to go as a VIP tourist. There was never a sound business conducted or such an outcome arrived by her visits to coountries in Africa, Indian sub-continent etc. If she had a good judgement and a foresight then she would have established good relations with India’s Sonia Gandhi and Pakistan’s late Benazir Bhutto. But she did not.

So, Sorry Sen. Clinton, you dont appear to be a good leader but you do appear to be a good politician. America needs a good leader now and not a politician to run the country.  You are too emotional to be a sound leader. You are getting rankled by simple questions by Tim Russert or making an issue that you are getting the first question in debate. I shudder to think how will you react and what decisions you make when you get rankled by someone in Russia or Iran.  You might end up in the same club as GWB and America cant afford another mistake like Iraq.

If Sen Clinton is the Democratic nominee, then how is she going to compete with John McCain on the National Security? Does that not mean we are in for another 4 years of Republican rule?  Is that what we want?

 Somehow, this strategy of Clinton campaign seems short-sighted and very much  against what Democratic party wants.

I think Sen. Obama presents a very good choice for us. Obama can beat McCain on National Security issues as he did not vote for Iraq War. I think Obama is also correct in saying we need to focus on Afganistan and Pakistan. Current administration did adopt what he had been saying and attacked a milinat base in Pakistan for the first time without Pakistan Army’s involvement. Obama’s assertion that he would speak with any leader first is also a good policy. America cant always act arrogant and deal with other world leaders with a gun in hand. It needs to act like a powerful country and discuss issues confidently with countries like China, Iran and Russia. So what is the harm in talking with these countries? I think to me it all makes sense?

But does it to you? If it does then support Sen. Obama.

I would vote for McCain any day if the choice was in 2000. If it is a choice between Clinton and McCain then I am going McCain.
