Promises, promises

Is Sen. Clinton getting more air time than Sen. Obama at this point? We should have timed it. Now she's going on about jobs.

"We can create at least 5 million new jobs," Sen. Clinton reinterated when Tim Russert questioned her about earlier job promises made in Buffalo, but which failed to materialize, during her U.S. Senate campaign.

"What happened in 2000 is I thought Al Gore was going to be president," Clinton said. "When I made the pledge, I was counting on having a Democratic White House, a Democratic president who shared my values about what we needed to do to make the economy work for everyone and to create shared prosperity. As you know, despite the difficulties of the Bush Administration and a Republican Congress for six years of my first term, I have worked very hard to create jobs. Obviously as president I will have a lot more tools at my disposal."

Hillary--go to Canada--they have National Health care--or Cuba they need a new leader of your character!! You could relly help both of these country'S!!!
We can survive and do quite well on our own resources, we do not need government except to protect us from foreign invaders!!

Pathetic, pathetic

Obama admits he neglected his senate responsibilities.

During the Feb 19th debates in Ohio Senator Obama who also serves as Chair of the subcommittee that has oversight over NATO admitted he has not held one single substantive hearing to figure out what the U.S can do to have a stronger presence with Nato in Afghanistan. 

Obama admitted it was true stating it was because his responsibilities as chair began at the same time he began running for President. 

While young men and women are at great risk and being killed in Afghanistan Obama’s admission proves that while most see hims as calm, cool, collected and presidential he is remotely ready
or qualified to take on there responsibilities of a President.

The day after Senator Carl Levin (D-MI), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee noted that Senator Clinton has introduced more legislation to address the problems facing wounded service members than any other Senator, including The Dignified Treatment of Wounded Warriors Act (accomplished while running her presidential race).
