why do americans dislike hilary so much? i've read books by her, books about her... why is she the target of so much ill-will? just wanted to hear first hand from some of you.
It's not that her ideas are bad... I happen to agree with at least the sentiments in "It Takes a Village".
The problem is that Hillary is a scheming, rank opportunist who would sell her own grandmother to get the power that she wants. She has shown on multiple occassions that she would rather do the things that advance her, rather than the things that are right to do in principle. Why would a "northern carpetbagger" move to New York? To represent the people she has spent a lifetime with? No. Because the stats said that is where she had the best probability of winning a seat. She would move to BFE it it advanced her ambition.
I am a liberal when it comes to social policy but I cannot stand Hillary because she thinks government is benevolent. She uses weasel words like "we want to ENCOURAGE business to contribute" when the legislation she proposes is a mandatory rule. It's a lie.
Hillary's health care plan wasn't bad but it was done in secret... no public input... the experts know best... then it was sprung on the country. Little wonder it went down in defeat... no public support generated... and it is because Hillary believes that the government and the experts know what is best for everybody else. She thinks the democratic process is getting elected so she can jam her views down everybody's throat... just like King George.
I don't think she would be fiscally responsible. She is not enough of a heavy weight to deal with foreign policy (not that George the chimp is... but why another one?). She panders. And the only reason that I can see as to why she wants to be president is not that she has a vision but rather it will be the culmination of her unbridled ambition.
Her life is out of balance. All politicians have ambition. But the best are also driven by lofiter goals, better ideals. We don't need a reverse image of George Bush who slams the wheel to the opposite extreme that Presidunce Bush has.
