Hillary Compares Herself to JFK

A few weeks ago Terry McAulliffe compared Hillary to Margaret Thatcher. The folks at Hillary Now compared her to Harry Truman. Now Hillary is comparing herself to JFK:

March 11, 2007 -- NASHUA, N.H. - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton invoked the campaign of the nation's lone Catholic president, John Kennedy, last night as she talked about her challenge in becoming the first female commander-in-chief.


"He was smart, he was dynamic, he was inspiring and he was Catholic. A lot of people back then [1960] said, 'America will never elect a Catholic as president,' " the White House hopeful told the New Hampshire Democrats' 100 Club fund-raiser here.

"But those who gathered here almost a half century ago knew better," she said. "They believed America was bigger than that and Americans would give Sen. John F. Kennedy a fair shake, and the rest, as they say, is history."

Superiority complex? Perhaps, but without the flashy clothes.

Hey,

How about some posts on the Sean Hannity heretic issue, or the purge of the US Attorneys. Seesm like obth of these issues are rather contentious, so how about some debate? Are you guys ducking these stories, or waiting for your orders on the "right" point of view...

Also Kim, still waiting for the answer to my question, or are you doing what Kapow says, "ducking"?

"They believed America was bigger than that and Americans would give Sen. John F. Kennedy a fair shake, and the rest, as they say, is history."

Un huh ... fair shake, indeed - if you count the mob ties to union labor that squeaked him past Nixon.

Don't get me wrong, I like Kennedy. Maybe the last true, non-despicable Democrat; but, to make the claim that he was voted into office fairly, is a bit of a stretch.

Oh, and Kapow, if you'd like to debate those types of topics, feel free to start your own blog. At least there you might find an audience that doesn't mind the screeching of an unfettered moonbat.

Never heard of such a thing. You however have made it very clear with Democrat talking points in hand and pink tutu a blazing that you where going to tip toe your way into this post and divert attention away from your Hilary Rotten Clinton.

Hillary Compares Herself to JFK is the topic. She actually believes she should be given a fare shake? Deep down inside she is saying the White House belongs to me. While those who know better see right through her as "Something Wicked This Way Comes".

groucho:

What a surprise; another lame attempt at Hillary bashing. The obvious comparison she made is between Kennedy's religion and her gender being potential obstacles to electability, but I'm sure this bit of self-serving spin will satisfy the bloodthirsy faithful for now. And I'm not a Hillary fan in the least.

What could Hillary Clinton possibly know about a fair-shake? When everything she ever got was the result of stabbing someone in the back.

Noting women are "the majority" of voters and are in the workforce in "record numbers," she added, "So when people tell me 'a woman can never be president,' I say, we'll never know unless we try."


Without actually saying, "I'm JFK." Hillary makes a pretty clear comparison here. Taking Vince Foster and Chappaquiddick into consideration she's probably more a "Teddy."

Kapow:

Ok so maybe the "orders from the right comment was a bit inflammatory, but I wanted to provoke some debate.
Rob in LA I didn't want to discract from Hilary, why would I do that? I freaking hate Hilary. I wish she would shut up and F off. I do like my tutu though, and seems you do too. Want to come over and play ballerina's, come on you live in LA, don't pretend you're not a little bit gay...

Now Phil - EVERY president clears out the USA's that served before him, they're appointed by the prez. and serve at his discretion. Nothing new there, with Clinton and the same thing happened with Bush in '01. That's not what is going on here, though. Try reading, then thinking, it helps sometimes...

yo - I have a blog, whihc will not be mentioned here - it doesn't really cover politics so that's not much use. However, I'm interested in hearing what JT and Kim and you wizbang commenter think about these issues. What about Hannity vs. Catholicism? Hmmm?

And I reiterate, I know this is off topic, if there was apost ON TOPIC I'd be reading and commenting there... but until then...

Lee:

She's not comparing herself to JFK -- - apparently Kim will put up any lie it takes to get conservatives to read her posts -- and apparently some conservaties are dumb enough to actually fall for it.

In the 1960s some voters in America said we'd never elect a catholic to president, and in 2007 some voters in America say we'll never elect a woman.

She's not comparing herself into JFK in anyway shape or form - she's comparing the attitude of some voters in America who are predicting a woman can win - to those voters in America who said a Catholic can't win.

The subject of the comparison if the voters and their opinion -- that's where the comparison is drawn. There are no comparisons drawn between JFK and Hillary.

I'm amazed that some of you people can't tell the difference, but I guess Kim knows her audience, and knows that some in America just aren't smart enough to figure out it's a lie.

Ooops, I compared myself to Kim - my bad! lol!

Hillary should've stuck comparing her odds to that of a Georgia peanut farmer, at least then she would've stood a chance of a somewhat favorable comparison.

Mitchell:

Lee, she is comparing herself to JFK, in essence saying that just like him, she can become a "first" like he was, he the first Catholic Prez, she the first female.

That's clearly a comparison which you seem not to be able to grasp. Lack of reading comprehension and lack of common sense are the diagnosis here, Lee boy.

I wouldn't compare her to my spaniel, much less JFK. Same goes for you, Lee Lee.
