Hillary's Vision of "Police States"

Coming from a woman who spent a significant portion of her husband's term in the in the White House under one investigation or another, I guess this kind of comment shouldn't come as much of a surprise:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a potential White House candidate in 2008, said Wednesday some Republicans are trying to create a "police state" to round up illegal immigrants.

Clinton, D-N.Y., spoke out on the U.S. immigration policy after largely staying away from an issue that has roiled Congress in recent months and spurred a number of conflicting proposals.

Speaking at a rally of Irish immigrants, Clinton criticized a bill the House passed in December that would impose harsher penalties for undocumented workers.

"Don't turn your backs on what made this country great," she said, calling the measure "a rebuke to what America stands for."

Now feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought part of what made America great was that we are a nation of laws, not men.

What Hillary seems to state is that breaking the law without consequence is "what America stands for." If this is indeed her position, no wonder she would find a state where the police enforce the laws so unpalatable.

I'd be curious to know how a nation can have the most free gun ownership laws in the world and still be a "police state". OT, but I wanted to give a cheer for the upcoming demise of Air America. Their ideas have been rejected in the marketplace, even in NYC.

So, rounding up criminals makes us a police state?

"Coming from a woman who spent a significant portion of her husband's term in the in the White House under one investigation or another..."

Very nice. A quick little slap at Hilary. I'm just curious, since you failed to mention it. How many of those investigations resulted in findings of wrongdoing against Hilary? I mean, we all know a Republican Congress can investigate whoever it wants, but of course the results are a different thing. I'm hoping you'll enlighten us. Because I'm sure, as an honorable person, you acknowledge that mentioning someone was investigated, without mentioning that they were cleared, is a cheap shot. And I'm sure you're above that.

No, nothing came from the investigations Chris. On account of Hillary being very clever. Remember how she "couldn't find" the Rose Law Firm records until (conveniently) the statute of limitations of the offense under investigation had passed? If your side wants to pretend that she has none of this baggage and is squeaky clean, please go ahead and support her in your local presidential primary. Know that we relish the opportunity to show what America thinks of the Shrill One.
