Fred Hiat, Gateway Pundit, The American Spectator is CDS Making a Comeback with the Republicans?

March 10, 2009

Good God I know the Republicans cannot be this crazy and go on the offensive and  attack the Secretary of State Clinton on human rights. That is equivalent to political suicide.  The pride of her supporters is that speech she gave in the 90’s and all the hard work she has done.  This is the stupidest attack they could of made IF they made it.I know that I said I would be resting because I am not feeling well today but this is too hot to not post. Is Clinton Derangement Syndrome coming back? Hope not. But I will know later.  Or is this the brownshirts attempting to get something started to keep things going?

Not believing they wont go on the attack is crazy.  I am inspired by you guys tea parties and stuff.  But ask Howard Dean how much a impact they had in regards to contributions.  Better yet look to yourselves for the answer.  Hell if our SOS wouldn’t of got out there and carried the Dem ticket to the finish line on her back while having to declare live that she was planting or rooting or whatever in the Senate and she neva eva eva planned on running for president again and the do nothing media, known as the MSM didn’t paint Gov Palin as the village idiot and the person who discovered it was smart to use the label *your racist* as a political strategy and tactic.  We would be saying President McCain and Vice President Palin.  So what the heck is this crap:

From Fred Hiat the Washington Post:

SECRETARY OF STATE Hillary Rodham Clinton continues to devalue and undermine the U.S. diplomatic tradition of human rights advocacy. On her first foreign trip, to Asia, she was dismissive about raising human rights concerns with China’s communist government, saying “those issues can’t interfere” with economic, security or environmental matters. In last week’s visit to the Middle East and Europe, she undercut the State Department’s own reporting regarding two problematic American allies: Egypt and Turkey.

Is this guy serious? How cute. Or a wimp.  I guess it’s easier to go after the *lil woman* cause you don’t want to actually criticize the actual person cause *gasp* that would be like, you know racist. So just substitute the easier target. Pathetic. Anyway,   Others way in:

The Washington Post‘s Fred Hiatt today condemns the Obama administration generally and Hillary Clinton specifically for “continu[ing] to devalue and undermine the U.S. diplomatic tradition of human rights advocacy.”  Hiatt is angry that on her trips to China, Egypt and Turkey, Clinton failed to issue sufficiently stern and condemning lectures about those countries’ human rights abuses.  The depths of the fantasy world in which our political elite reside — and their complete lack of self-awareness — borders on pathological.

Good grief someone buy this man a clue.  Better yet, Mr Hiat? Yeah we are really in a good positon to go *lecturing* other countries. Do you have any idea how stupid you sound?  We barely as a country have a pot to piss in and you wan’t the Secretary of State to go LECTURING? Yeah. Sure. Because like everything is just peachy keene over here. Whatever.  Anyway. These blogs, here and here are running a story on being *upset* all of a sudden about the Secretary of State not addressing human rights in China.  The American Spectator even quoted her from March:

While none of this should come as surprising, it’s worth noting that during the Democratic primaries, Clinton touted her record of fighting for human rights as a key part of her vast resume of foreign policy experience, specifically boasting about a trip she made to China in 1995 in which she gave a speech about women’s rights. “I’ve been standing up against, you know, the Chinese government over women’s rights and standing up for human rights in many different places,” she told CNN last March.

Okay, first up, this belief we have the moral authority to even attempt to go to another country and lecture them on anything when they can drop the dime on us is ludicrous.  In order to have *moral authority* you have to have, well, our own house in order.  Contrary to popular belief that is something EARNED.   Not given.  Being a diplomat, handling foreign affairs is not about telling them what they are doing wrong but pointing out what we ALL can be doing right.  And FYI, I don’t know about you but going and *lecturing* the country that now owns 50 percent damn near of our own debt, money we are unable to pay if they all of a sudden call for it to be repaid.  Is not one of the brightest moves. Especially considering the fact WE are cutting our defense spending, and China just raised there by 13%.

All it takes is a little bit of research and the best place to go would be to read the article by Senator Bayh in the Wall Street Journal:

The omnibus increases discretionary spending by 8% over last fiscal year’s levels, dwarfing the rate of inflation across a broad swath of issues including agriculture, financial services, foreign relations, energy and water programs, and legislative branch operations. Such increases might be appropriate for a nation flush with cash or unconcerned with fiscal prudence, but America is neither.

Drafted last year, the bill did not pass due to Congress’s long-standing budgetary dysfunction and the frustrating delays it yields in our appropriations work. Since then, economic and fiscal circumstances have changed dramatically, which is why the Senate should go back to the drawing board. The economic downturn requires new policies, not more of the same.

Our nation’s current fiscal imbalance is unprecedented, unsustainable and, if unaddressed, a major threat to our currency and our economic vitality. The national debt now exceeds $10 trillion. This is almost double what it was just eight years ago, and the debt is growing at a rate of about $1 million a minute.

Washington borrows from foreign creditors to fund its profligacy. The amount of U.S. debt held by countries such as China and Japan is at a historic high, with foreign investors holding half of America’s publicly held debt. This dependence raises the specter that other nations will be able to influence our policies in ways antithetical to American interests. The more of our debt that foreign governments control, the more leverage they have on issues like trade, currency and national security. Massive debts owed to foreign creditors weaken our global influence, and threaten high inflation and steep tax increases for our children and grandchildren.

The solution going forward is to stop wasteful spending before it starts. Families and businesses are tightening their belts to make ends meet — and Washington should too.

It pays to discover. Think about it.
