Sen. Clinton Statement

Statement of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
Thursday, Sep 4, 2008

The two party conventions showcased vastly different directions for our country. Senator Obama and Senator Biden offered the new ideas and positive change America needs and deserves after eight years of failed Republican leadership. Senator McCain and Governor Palin do not.

After listening to all the speeches this week, I heard nothing that suggests the Republicans are ready to fix the economy for middle class families, provide quality affordable health care for all Americans, guarantee equal pay for equal work for women, restore our nation's leadership in a complex world or tackle the myriad of challenges our country faces. So, to slightly amend my comments from Denver: NO WAY, NO HOW, NO McCAIN-PALIN.

    You complain about your boss not doing his job. You notice he's only working to fatten his pockets with big oil payoffs. He fights all the time with the smaller companies instead of the bigger company that has hurt him the most . Your have not received a raise and you may lose your job because the boss is now outsourcing the jobs. You are about to lose your home. The boss has so many houses he can't count them. The company you work for has not turned a profit in years and has low approval ratings. The boss distributes a company wide memo that reads " I really don't know much about the economy." The boss threatens to release the pitbull on if you keep WHINING. You have put up with his bullying ways for eight long years. Finally your work contract is ending with your boss. As you think about your family's future you ask yourself "Should I continue working for this creep or should I CHANGE employers? ".

    It's that simple America. It's time for a change and YOU know it.

    ANCIENT PROVERB: Don't let your pitbulls run loose with the moose on the White House lawn.

    To be a little bit fair to McCain, he did say something about retraining those who lost their old jobs that won't come back for new jobs he says won't go away.

    Mccain's speech is so boring and offers no concrete strategies to move our country forward. All I hear is" fight with me" forgeting that a Hungry Stomach cannot really fight very well. I guess with 9 houses and $300,000 for Cindy's cloths/Jewels, they can afford to keep fighting. After 8 years of Buah/Mccain, we can't afford this fight that he talks about.

    This guy should go babysit. This is no change. I am surprised he's even made it this far. When are we going to get the specifics about the future of our children sir? You do not belong to us. You and your sarah palin (who thinks God has sent the troops to IRAQ) should leave this country for the real guy who really understand us.

    You rock Hillary, I can't wait to see what part you will play in the Obama/Biden administration.

    You are the real experienced woman politician. Palin can't even stand in the same room as you.

    We love you Hillary!

    I agree. They have said nothing but "well Obama said..." the whole time. No substance at the RNC. I guess this is why they had so many protesters.
