Hillary: It takes a Clinton to clean up after a Bush

Best line of the century!

Hillary Clinton while giving a speech in Iowa, stressed the fact that we need someone who is experienced in office, not someone that will need on the job training.

Read this article from the AP.

She absolutely knocks it out of the park with this speech. Here's an excerpt:

"There seems to be a pattern here. It takes a Clinton to clean up after a Bush."

"There is one job we can't afford on-the-job training for — our next president. That could be the costliest job training in history," Clinton said. "Every day spent learning the ropes is another day of rising costs, mounting deficits and growing anxiety for our families. And they cannot afford to keep waiting."

She hits the nail right on the head. Hillary has already had plenty of experience in the white house - 8 years longer than any of the other candidates. For the first few years the other candidates will be in office if elected, they will be just taking cues from advisers because they haven't learned the role themselves yet. And that's what happens. When someone is elected president, they hire a group of advisers to tell them what position they should take on a number of policies. Eventually they start making their own decisions, but this is a very crucial time in our history where we can't afford to wait around.

She also brought up a good point of rising costs. We need someone that's going to come in there and lower taxes to relieve the burden from the American citizens that Bush has put us all under. Taxes are killing mainstream America, and we need some real mainstream solutions to get this country back to something we can all be proud of.

Edit: a grassroots Hillary supporter sent us an e-mail to inform us that Hillary would most likely raise taxes. But my point still stands: we need someone with real leadership and real experience that can take on the toughest struggles that we face today.

I don't think that Hillary has any credentials though. She had a failed health care plan, lots of practice dodging legal subpoenas for her dealings as a lawyer. Too many incidents of finance misdealings and she can't get along with half the congress or senate.

If elected, we face stagnation because they won't work with her. We need progress, someone who can work with both parties, she is actually hated among republicans and veering from democratic lines for votes now.

She may get elected, but she would be hard pressed to find people to work with her.
She would be holding us as a country back for four years.
