ASSociated Press: First Lady Assails Sen. Clinton for Remark
Laura Bush criticized Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday for suggesting that the Republican-controlled House is run like a plantation where dissenting voices are ignored.
“It think it’s ridiculous _ it’s a ridiculous comment,” Mrs. Bush told reporters when asked about the remark during a return flight to Washington following her four-day swing through West Africa.
Why, of course but the Democrats are running for cover and even defending her – like Obama here.
Clinton made the comment in Harlem at an event honoring the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. She said the GOP was running the House “like a plantation” because ideas from the minority Democrats were not respected. The White House on Tuesday called the senator’s comments “way out of line.”
Hillary and the Democrats OWN the African-American vote and she/they will do anything to pander to this solid block of votes.
