Hillary Clinton Watch: House of Representatives Run Like a Plantation

WCBSTV.com: Controversial Words At Sharpton’s MLK Event

The Martin Luther King Day celebration at Reverend Al Sharpton’s National Action Network is a rite of passage in an election year. And with so many big races this year, candidates and controversy were the order of the day.

Sen. Hillary Clinton, who had launched into an impassioned attack on the Bush administration.

“We have a culture of corruption, we have cronyism we have incompetence I predict to you that this administration will go down on history as one of the worst that has ever governed out country.”

Clinton actually got an easy question. “I need you to tell us what distinguishes Democrats from Republicans right now,” she was asked.

Clinton’s answer was provocative.

Said Clinton, “When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation and you know what I’m talking about…”

Hillary, the race baiter on Martin Luther King Day……figures – she will do anything to win the Presidency in 2008.

Some House Republicans took immediate offense at Senator Clinton’s choice of words.

Said Republican Congressman Peter King, of Long Island, “It’s always wrong to play the race card for political gain by using a loaded word like plantation. But it is particularly wrong to do so on Martin Luther King Day.”

Hillary will play the RACE CARD or whatver card to win the presidency.

But, can you imagine the disaster with her in the White House? She will be more unprincipled than her husband Bill……

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s outrage….. and not from the MSM.

    Hi Flap – hope you’ve been well. Thought I would point out the hypocrisy of the GOP in trying to make this an issue, by pointing to what some conservative media outlets and pundits have said over the last three plus years:

    TownHall.com, 03/22/05
    I would call the Democratic alternative the “plantation society.” The “plantation society” is characterized by a wealthy class of owners who want to limit the choices, opportunities and freedom of working-class Americans.

    National Review, 09/05/03
    After all, nothing upsets Sen. Kennedy and his pals more than when those they view as intellectual slaves dares to leave the Democratic plantation.

    Wall Street Journal, 11/08/04
    Democrats are rubbing their eyes in disbelief not just at President Bush’s success across America, but also about the fact that a major group they thought would stay on the liberal plantation forever is making a getaway. As they escape out the back door, members of this group are saying “hasta la vista, baby.”

    Newsmax, 04/11/02
    The minorities must be kept on the Democratic plantation. Success stories like Miguel Estrada must not be showcased.

    Washington Times, 02/04/05
    Indeed, while many conservatives cringe at the prospect of losing the homosexual vote, the fact of the matter is black America has never embraced that demographic, helping, perhaps, to explain why, while most blacks remained faithful to the Democratic Plantation, er, Party in the 2004 presidential election, the black vote for the Bush-Cheney ticket increased.

    Bob Novak, CNN, 01/25/05
    Where would the Democrats be if they’re not picking up around 90 percent of the black vote? What if black voters started moving off the Democratic plantation?
