1. Of course not. The Repugs were just projecting again.
That's a stunt they'd pull.

2. Yes, but I was turned-off that all the POLITICOS needed to fly in right after the earth-quake.
PRIORITY should have been given to "the rescue effort" not to dignitaries looking to score poltical points.

5. What photo-op???
Yeah, like Hillary needs a photo-op, particularly one where she looks rumpled, tired and a little windblown.

11. My husband is in Haiti with his DMAT team and he told me that she helped their team
to get med supplies released from the airport so they could set up the field hospital.

15. And Sec of State is a political office?
As State is in charge of our effort, I appreciate the fact that She What Be In Charge went for an eyes at the ground look. Or would you prefer she went shoe shopping?

24. What politicos? Hillary Clinton is heading the American effort
Her plane took in supplies and took out refugees. A photo of her and their President sends a signal. Bill Clinton, in one of the interviews spoke of going only because there were things that he needed to do related to his UN job. Other than that only Rendell was there - his mission was humanitarian, but he likely could have waited. Other than that I know of no government official.

4. The suggestion is so effin' ludicrous that only a bona fide Clinton Hater would even entertain it
People believe anything.

14. I don't think any real news outlet "covered"
this idiotic piece of slander. I only saw it on commondreams which is quickly becoming the most idiotic place to waste time online recently knocking drudge out of the spot.

12. And the republicans still, I say still love to slur and flame the Clintons
see what green eyed jealousy will do. They see the world opinion of the Clintons, especially Bill, then look at the world opinion of the absolute abject piece of crap George Jr and they are jealous and they lie and lie and lie. Most real Americans are wise to them now.

17. What suprised me was that Common Dreams printed this story
I havn't visited the Common Dreams web site for a long, long time, but I always thought they were reliable...

20. There is a segment on the left that is as out to get Obama and everyone in his Administration -
especially high profile people like Clinton - as the RW seems to be. It's sickening.

23. I read about this couple last week, before Clinton arrived
Edited on Mon Jan-25-10 11:28 AM by Tippy
long before SOS Clinton arrived in Haiti....But I know many Americans who are on the ground in Haiti are for what ever reason, are trying to trash our country and the Administration...but my first thought upon reading what this man had to say was maybe America should just pull out...I know that is not an option Our help is needed and we have a responsibility to respond...My Church has a Mission in Haiti, and I know the conditions on a good day, so can imagin what it is like now.

18. This LIE got out of proportion by FOX because there's a crumb of truth to having
to provide "extra security" for VIPs. That did delay a few flights and there were complaints from numerous Aid Organizations.

No, the Sec of State was not keyed out in EuroNews (what I view) but none the less, there were complaints that EXTRA TROOP PLANES were let in ahead of Aid in order to provide security for the VIPS.

Nothing in this world is perfect, the right wingers just took the complaints to an INSANE LEVEL of absurdity.

19. Sometimes all it takes is a headline and you automatically know
it's full of it. Can you imagine? HRC, of all people?
