Hillary Clinton: Partisan gridlock at home hurts U.S. abroad
Really? Partisanship is bad on the global stage?
"We're now more than a year into a new administration and whether you agree or disagree with a particular policy, a president deserves to have the people that he nominates serving him," Clinton told the Senate Appropriations Committee.Blah ha ha ha ha! This is just too good. You cannot make this stuff up. The same lady and the same party that let nary a political appointment by then President Bush, is now frustrated at the system.
Does anybody remember when the Republicans had the majority in Bush's first term, and the Democrats filibustered virtually every appointment? And when the Republicans got so frustrated they considered using their majority to change some of the parliamentary rules to go around the super majority requirement for nominations, the democrats howled and gnashed their teeth. Remember the protests that erupted due to the accusations of partisan grid lock?
Like they say....
"What goes around comes around".
"What is good for the goose is good for the gander".
"People don't understand the way our system operates, they just don't get it," she said. "And their view does color whether the United States ... is in a position going forward to demonstrate the kind of unity and strength and effectiveness that I think we have to in this very complex and dangerous world."Oh, poor thing........
Does this mean she regrets hobbling the Bush administration?
I doubt it, but I am glad to see her get a taste of her own medicine.
