Hilary Clinton Laughed At, Booed at Blogger Convention

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on August 5th, 2007 8:46 am by HL

7 of the 8 Democratic candidates for President spoke at the Yearly Kos convention yesterday in Chicago. In the debate style setting all Candidates except Joe Biden were present. During the forum John Edwards, and Barack Obama spoke of no longer accepting donations from Washington DC lobbyists. Hilary dodged the issue until later when she was asked point blank if she would continue to accept lobbyist money, her answer: ‘Yes I will continue to accept lobbyist money because they represent real people. At that point the audience of close to 1500 began to boo, hiss and laugh at Ms. Clinton.

Nonetheless, the bloggers booed and hissed when Clinton insisted a moment later that nobody would believe that she could be influenced by lobbyists’ money. So would she continue to accept those donations?

“Yes, I will,” she said, arguing that plenty of lobbyists represent good causes. “They represent nurses, they represent social workers, they represent, yes, they represent corporations that employ a lot of people.”

Obama rejected that argument, saying Clinton should know better because special interest money helped sink her health care package in 1993. The crowd cheered wildly….

Again and again, Edwards took swipes at Clinton. On terrorism, he said: “I don’t believe we’re safer. I don’t agree with Sen. Clinton on that.” In a previous debate, Clinton had said the country had been made safer.

Clinton explained Saturday that while post-9/11 reforms have improved the nation’s safety, the country is not as safe under President Bush as it should be. “I listened carefully to John. I think we have a vigorous agreement,” she said, coldly.

Heres another Hilary quote on the same story from Huffington Post.

Senator Clinton tried to clarify her statement by asking the audience to look at her history. “I don’t think that based on my 35 years fighting for what I believe in, that anybody thinks I’m going to be influenced by a lobbyist.”

HLs Take
Yes they will Hillary, (or should I call you Ms. AIPAC) yes they will. Another reason why Dennis Kucinich is the only real Democratic candidate for President. I didn’t get a chance to attend the convention in Chicago because unlike Daily Kos, I am not able to charge $9000 for one weeks advertisements, and am not rich like Kos. Funny how Hilary buys those 9 grand ads on his site, and despite the fact that they continue to slam her. As my good friend Bartcop pointed out. ‘Funny how the two biggest liberal blogs on the Internet are owned by former Republicans’. Kos was a member of the Reagan Youth, he was also in the military and according to one rumor I read may have been in the CIA. The other big blog Huffington Post is owned by Ariana Huffington, who used to be a member of the right wing Republican noise machine. Her husband was some sort of Republican congressman, until she divorced him when she found out he was gay. (what a surprise a closeted gay Republican) I consider both of these blogs to be “mainstream” or moderate. Yes they trumpet democratic causes but they always seem to mute there criticism
of the Dems whenever they do something like bow to Republican will even though they have a majority in congress. If you want a real blog for liberals, stick to people like Bart, and of course your old pal HL

    What you way HL essentially proves that Democrats are weak and despite being slapped in the face by their abusive candidates, continue to support them even though they get nothing in return for that support.

    Democrats have become the Republican light party because they’ve swallowed the Bush agenda. Notice how their debates focus on “terrorism”, whether Americans are “safer” as if Americans are under constant attacks from abroad. The main things Americans need to fear are its own federal and state governments and the militarization of the local police departments.

    Clinton appears to be the Democratic front runner and likely will get the party nomination. The fact that she dismisses her AIPAC lobby money just shows who she listens to. Anytime that both parties take money from a lobby that represents the interests of a foreign state, there is a problem. The problem is about loyalty and conflict of interests. I wonder how easy it is to approach any AIPAC money recipient and talk to them about the Middle East and the fundamental inequities harming Palestinians that exist today.

    Vote for a Democrat or Republican, you’ll get more of the same for another 8 years or more.

    She actually told the truth once?

    She’s nothing but a “war witch.”
