Escape and Evade

I received this via email today.

Hillary Clinton (D-NY) has already started her 2008 presidential campaign by aligning herself with the military and pretending to be tough on terror. Fortunately, the ultra-liberal Hillary has yet to brainwash all of the voting public in to believing that her symbolism is really substance. Many have never forgotten that when she was co-president for eight years she was quoted as saying: " I loathe the military."

It was captioned:

The picture shows that this soldier has been thru Survival School and learned his lessons well. He's giving the sign of "coercion" with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW's as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. This guy was obviously being coerced into shaking hands with Hillary Clinton. It's ironic how little she knew that he would so inform us about the photo---perhaps because she's never understood our military to begin with.

By the way, save yourself the trouble of searching for photos of Senator Clinton with John McCain. I already checked.

Update: Am I the last person to see this? Well, while we're sorta on the subject. (h/t Phin)

An oldie, but goodie. That photo's been floating around for a while, but hasn't lost its relevance. Hillary is no friend to the military.

Hillary's been pretty transparent ever since last year when, realizing that the Republican party's biggest issue(other than dodging idiotic portside rhetoric from the left on Iraq) was border security, she threw her hat into that arena with great fervor, hoping to attract moderates from the right.

Claiming to support the troops has been the biggest bunch of BS the left has been putting out -- I got pretty good exposure to that scene back in September, when I was in DC on business and got to attend a counterdemonstration against the wingnuts who congregate outside Walter Reed every Friday night. A few hours prior to the demonstration I was inside the hospital complex and had the opportunity to meet some of the patients, among them amputees who had made their profound sacrifices in Iraq.

These guys have no use for their liberal "supporters", whose actual mission is to "sympathise" with them that they sacrificed "for nothing".

These people are beneath contempt.

It is common knowledge that the Clintons gave the military short shrift during that disgrace of an administration, and the very idea of Hillary playing up to the U.S. Armed Forces at this late hour is ludicrous, only the least informed among the voting public could possibly swallow that without immediately needing the Heimlich Maneuver.

Hillary, like the rest of the liberals who purport to support our troops, is beneath contempt.

Furthermore, CY, thanx for the trackback. :-)

Now that's a funny picture. Look at the smile on the guy's face. He's on the verge of cracking

I worked for the Navy in DC at the beginning of the Clinton prsidency. As I recall the Clintons liked the military so well that they forbade the wearing of any military uniforms in the white house. I also heard rumors that Mrs. Clinton engaged field grade officers as waiters at several white house functions. That sounded over the top but after outlawing uniforms I am willing to consider it. Anybody else ever hear that story?

They don't look even a little bit like they'd have anything to say to each other outside Hillar's blatantly transparent photo op.

Snopes confirms that this photo is authentic.

The book "Dereliction of Duty" recounts a number of examples of the Clintons' hatred of the military and contempt for patriotism. It's by Lt. Col. Robert Patterson (USAF retired) who carried the nuclear football and saw them up close.

It will be very hard for Hilry to hide her true ultra-liberal nature in a campaign, because at some point she will have to pay homage to the groups that have put her in position to run, the NAG's, Gay Rights, Wacko Enviro's, ect.

Best photo I've seen this day! THANKS

I guess as of right now I'm the last one to see this. I haven't seen it before now.

What a great photo!

hillary is not able to make up her mind, she first supports bush, and then says she is against war on iraq.... what is she up to??

btw, I dont trust women, not that I deny their rights, but my experience stands testimony to the fact that women are much more venimous than men..... I would rather enourage someone who is honest but has not made up his mind yet, than a woman addicted to power and control and changes her mind in the hope she wins votes....

Sure - in military survival school they taught him to cross his fingers as a way to say "just kidding."
