Here is a link (http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/08/15/blackout.crime/) to an article on CNN.... The headline states "Outage Fails to Generate Crime Spree."

Does that mean it tried to generate a crime spree?

Silly, isn't it?

I think the headline should have read: "Outage Fails to Generate Electricity."

It is silly. Almost as silly as Hillary trying to blame the outage on the Bush administration.

Yeah, I thought her remarks were pretty funny. They had a field day with that on talk radio. You should have heard it. I got to hear all the shows on my battery-powered radio during the blackout. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

We have him here too from 3-6PM. I heard that interview.

"Do you know who our Secretary of State is?"

"No, I don't. I don't follow that stuff."

"Well, do you know who our Vice President is?"

"Of course I do."

"Well then who is the Vice President?"

"I couldn't say right now."

"Well, what do you think we should do about terrorism?"

"I think we're bothering them too much and we should just leave them all alone."


Hahahaha!

Too bad they dont shoot more of them over here. The soldier should get a medal for doing a public service.

That sounds about right for her. I cant stomach the sight of that woman.
Why they ever elected her in New York will always remain a mystery to me.

Are jouralists the enemy now ?

The fact that the soldiers are so edgy reflects the true state of affairs . Iraq is anything but secure . It never will be until you gain the confidence of the people. Incidents like this are not going to help .


Q

You said 'public service'. What public are you taking about?

I cant stand them, is that okay with you ? They should send all the lawyers over to Iraq also and give the grunts something really good to shoot at.
And people like you also. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

She never even bothered to get out there and help. Her actions show she is not a true New Yorker, and her heart is not for/with the people of New York.

I just hope the rest of this country doesn't get any crazy ideas should she run for President.

That would be horrendous if she ever got in but i think people had enough of seeing her scheming old mans ways and she is a carbon copy.

I still can't figure out how she got elected. For weeks leading up to the election, everyone was speaking out about how much they couldn't stand her. I think her followers were too embarassed to speak out.

Oh, she'll definitely run for Pres.. I'm sure of it. It's just a matter of when. She's got strong political pull and support.

Every time I think of her, one particular sickening image comes to my mind. It was right after the 9-11 attack, when GW called a special session of Congress and gave his famous "We will not falter" speech. That was a time for all members of the Senate and House to pull together and rally around the President, and they did. Except for one. The camera zoomed in on Hillary and she was watching GW with this awful scowl on her face. I'm sure she had no idea the camera was on her. You probably remember it. It looked like she was imagining her chances of running against GW going down the drain. It was truly pathetic.
