Hillary - The Wednesday Afternoon Quarterback
It was only a matter of time. And no, I'm not surprised.
Hillary "We Are The President" Clinton has joined the "If We Knew Then What We Know Now" Chorus Line and apologized to the Left Wing Moonbat Caucus for her vote authorizing the use of force against Saddam Hussein's Iraq.
She has done so, not in a nationally televised speech, or in remarks given on the Senate floor, but in an fundraising email sent to supporters on Tuesday. Says the New York Senator:
If Congress had been asked [to authorize the war], based on what we know now, we never would have agreed.How gutless can one woman be? If I knew then what I know now, I would have bought Yahoo at $15, sold it before the Dot Com collapse, and would now own Catalina Island.
Yes, I am illustrating absurdity by being absurd. The fact remains that by making such an absurd claim, Hillary is showing her inability to lead.
One of the requirements of leadership is the willingness and ability to make decisions and determine courses of action based on incomplete information. Colin Powell stated the following formula for decision making:
Use formula P=40 to 70, in which P stands for the probability of success and the number indicates the percentage of the information acquired. ONCE the percentage of information is in the 40-70 percent range, GO WITH YOUR GUT.Hillary, and the vast majority of the Jackass Caucus, suffer from a syndrome requiring a 100% success probability before taking any action. This is not a new syndrome. It is the primary reason the Clinton (Sorry Excuse For) Administration's entire foreign policy can be summed up in one four letter word.
No, it's not that four letter word. Shame on you.
The four letter word describing the Clinton (Sorry Excuse For) Administration's foreign policy is "PUNT". Do as little as necessary in order to push the issue down the road for someone else to deal with. You want examples? The most obvious is Usama bin Laden, but Kim Jong "Mentally" Ill's North Korea is a close second.
Hillary's feignt leftward is an obvious attempt to kowtow to her base and assure them she won't forget her roots. Well, Hill, neither will we.
Here endeth the lesson.
