Hillary considers anyone outside of Ruth Bader Ginsburg unfit for the federal bench. She recently remarked that Judge Janice Rogers Brown, a federal D.C. circuit court of appeals nominee, "truly sees the world in 19th century terms." Nineteenth century terms like private property and rule of law are too outdated for the junior New York senator.
Hillary is a regulatory-minded, higher taxes, higher spending liberal. As I wrote back in April 2003, "The [Herbert] Hoover economic ideology of yesterday is almost identical to the Hillary economic ideology of today."
Don't be fooled by Hillary's public movement toward the political center. When she's among her friends, she's far less "moderate" than when she's quoted on the evening news. On June 6, Clinton spoke at a fundraiser held by "New York Women for Hillary." She launched into a prolonged tirade against the Bush administration, charging it with corruption, deceit and centralization of power. "There has never been an administration, I don't think in our history, more intent on consolidating and abusing power to further their own agenda ? I stay awake at night thinking about all the mistakes and the wrong direction and all the bad decisions being made in Washington," she complained. "It's very hard to stop people who have no shame about what they're doing. It's very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth."
Talk about no shame. This power-hungry senator would be a nobody had she not latched onto her presidential husband. This power-hungry senator would be a nobody had she not carpetbagged her way into New York. This power-hungry senator has done nothing of note in the United States Senate -- her fawning media coverage began before she even arrived in Washington, D.C. In fact, Hillary's single moment of glory in the Senate was her infamous floor shriek: "The president knew what?" as she held up a copy of the New York Post in the months following Sept. 11.
Hillary's right about one thing -- it is very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth. Unfortunately for Hillary Clinton, the American people will learn (and remember) the truth about her.
