Humble Hillary Clinton Will End US Arrogance

From the New York Post:

CLINTON VOWS TO END U.S. ‘ARROGANCE’ AS PRESIDENT

By IAN BISHOP

February 21, 2007 — MIAMI – Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed yesterday to change the United States so it’s no longer an "arrogant power" that alienates the world.

"When I’m president, I’m going to send a message to the world that America is back – we’re not the arrogant power that we’ve been acting like for the last six years," Sen. Clinton said during her first campaign stop in the Sunshine State.

"We want to be an admired country again in the world. There is a lot of work to be done," Clinton said to applause from a predominantly black audience gathered for her town-hall-style chat in the Liberty City section of Miami.

Clinton blamed the Bush administration for squandering worldwide goodwill in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

"It’s very sad to me," she added. "We have to rebuild it because a lot of the problems we have, we can’t solve on our own. It can’t be solved just because we have the strongest military in the world."

In a sharp shot at President Bush’s policy against bargaining with the terrorist-supporting nations Iran and Syria, she quipped: "I don’t think you get very far in life if you just point fingers at somebody and say, ‘We think you’re bad. We’re never going to talk to you.’"

"I don’t think that’s the way the world works," she said, later adding, "you don’t make peace with your friends."

The Clintons certainly have a unimpeachable track record for humiliating the country. So maybe she’s on to something.

Clinton blamed the Bush administration for squandering worldwide goodwill in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The Bush administration has freed at least 50 million people from brutal dictatorships. How many people were freed under Bill Clinton? (Not counting interns.)

I don’t think you get very far in life if you just point fingers at somebody and say, ‘We think you’re bad. We’re never going to talk to you.’

It’s far better to blame all of your problems on "a vast right wing conspiracy."

And to give nuclear reactors to North Korea, missile technology to China, and a free pass to Muslim terrorism.

And lest we forget, Ms. Clinton was singing a very different psalm on September 13, 2001:

Every nation has to either be with us, or against us. Those who harbor terrorists, or who finance them, are going to pay a price.

But that was then and this is now.
