Hillary: You know who has a “lifetime of experience”? John McCain; Update: Hillary does it again

posted at 4:26 pm on March 6, 2008 by Allahpundit

Well, fine. But does flying jets over Vietnam and spending 20 years in the Senate really compare to picking out drapes for the White House and doing air kisses with Suha Arafat? Don’t sell yourself short, Hillary.

Oh, and thanks for yet another anti-Obama campaign commercial this fall.

Update: Did you know that she and John McCain share a lifetime of experience? No, it’s true.

I’m looking forward to Obama going Fourth Party if he doesn’t get the nomination…

Vizzini on March 6, 2008 at 4:30 PM

She points out McCain’s lifetime only to highlight her “35 years.”

If she’s going to ding Obama for lack of experience, shouldn’t we be able to question the depth of hers?

picking out drapes and air kisses….nice touch

If Hillary wins there will be an uptick in Republican suicides over the next four years. At least with Obama there will be some new fresh meat to slice and dice.

Jesus wept. Don’t any of these people realize that in the age of the Internet, you can’t repeat the same exact canned line over and over and over without people noticing?

I mean, God bless her for endlessly repeating great McCain campaign commercials … but c’mon. Can’t any of these people just speak like human beings once in a while.

After years of hearing the “Bush is ineloquent” meme … I’m starting to wonder how true is.

Maybe Bush is just one of the rare politicians who tends to just plain talk. It isn’t very hard to be eloquent when you memorize the same 30 second speech and repeat it endlessly.

I’d pay good money to see both of these idiots forced to answer questions – with no canned answers permitted.

You’d think the Obamaniacs would have created an Obama party by now. If they haven’t, tell them to spread the word – forget the Democrats, they’re not for ‘change’; Obama will run on the Obama platform, in the Obama party, representing all five wings (O-b-a-m-a)!

emailnuevo on March 6, 2008 at 4:36 PM

Wonder what Howard Dean has to say about that?

ctmom on March 6, 2008 at 4:37 PM

You know. Maverick’s got to be living right these days. He doesn’t need campaign funds when the Dems are going to do his work for him. Soooo, does Hillary think that her “lifetime of experiences” are in the ballpark with Mav’s. Good grief.

Sugar Land on March 6, 2008 at 4:37 PM

Cold.

Kralizec on March 6, 2008 at 4:37 PM

P.S. I didn’t get it before, because I was afraid to hit play, but I have to admit, the first time, that line was pretty funny.

The third time, funny for the wrong reasons.

emailnuevo on March 6, 2008 at 4:38 PM

It appears as though Hillary Clinton would be okay with a John McCain Presidency.

SoulGlo on March 6, 2008 at 4:40 PM

LMAO!

Hillary how dare you take on the messiah, and blasphemer the 2002 speech!

Wow, she must hate Obama’s guts.

Karl, you magnificent bastard.

I don’t know how we possibly could have ended up here, but I’m enjoying it.

Dude…

7+ more weeks of this.

That’s all I’m sayin’.

amerpundit on March 6, 2008 at 4:46 PM

McCain can claim over 50 years of experience. >:}

Chakra Hammer on March 6, 2008 at 4:47 PM

Considering that aside from that one speech Hillary gave in China, Chelsea as the same foreign experience that Hillary does, Hillary shouldn’t be crowing about one hit wonders.

pedestrian on March 6, 2008 at 4:50 PM

Now someone tell me she’s going to be all gung ho, abandon her bid, and settle for VP under Obama.

amerpundit on March 6, 2008 at 4:50 PM

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaw! Yeehaw!

52Ranger on March 6, 2008 at 4:50 PM

Don’t forget her packing experience when she left the White House with gifts given to the people of the USA. She can get a whole room of nicknacks in one big crate in no time

She looks like she’s been packing away lots of snacks too..

Hening on March 6, 2008 at 4:52 PM

Anyone think the Republicans will actually run this (and any future gold the Dem primary puts out in its last bloody 7 weeks) against Obama?

Not me.

Plus, McCain’s main man is going to resign, isn’t he?

Is Hillary aiming to be McCain’s running mate?

Free Constitution on March 6, 2008 at 5:01 PM

There is a lot of talk about how these charges of no experience are affecting average voters. I really don’t think average voters are concerned with experience. I think the message Hill is putting out is aimed at the super-delegates. She is trying to scare them into believing that Obama is going to get trounced in the general, therefore they should line up behind her. Same with the 3am ad it wasn’t necessarily aimed at the voters but at the supers.

Not if you know which side your bread is buttered

Kini on March 6, 2008 at 5:08 PM

Obama has major problems on his hands. He may win the delegate count in the end but with no momentum. It’s like leading the Championship game by thirty points with three minutes to go. Then after multiple turnovers and blunders you win by a single point. Yeaaaaaaa. Not really.

THE CHOSEN ONE on March 6, 2008 at 5:09 PM

They’re concerned with their stupid iphones and y’know, whatever.

inviolet on March 6, 2008 at 5:20 PM

A lifetime of experience being an adulter: When you sleep with an adulterer, you become one yourself.

A lifetime of experience attacking people, seeking advantage over them to enforce your own Marxist views.

A lifetime of experience being a politician, which is another word for liar.

A lifetime of experience involved in toppling America, the home of the great Liberty Experience.

A lifetime of experience believing you are the reincarnation of the man people call Jesus.

A lifetime experience of making people gack.

Liberty is dead. All hail Hilary.

mksmithwriter on March 6, 2008 at 5:23 PM

Any video makers out there? Here’s an idea to lampoon Hilary’s 3 am phone ad.

Phone rings – Hilary answers – “Madame President? This is Sgt. Washington with DC Metro? We picked up your husband at an orgy we raided. Would you like to com pick him up please?

Phone rings – a slim, feminine woman’s hand picks up the phone, answers, then says, “Hilary, it’s for you.”

So easy.

I was telling a co-worker the exact same thing today! If she’s selected he’ll run as a 3rd party candidate.

SouthernGent on March 6, 2008 at 6:59 PM

Obviously, neither one can compare their experience to John McCain.
Barry’s campaign may be on a self-inflicted death spiral. I’m sorry if this has already been posted, but someone on his staff really stepped in according to this link.

evenkeel on March 6, 2008 at 7:07 PM

FREUDIAN SLIP ALERT!

Hillary didn’t say Senator McCain “would” bring a lifetime of experience to the White House

She said “I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience that he WILL bring to the White House”

This is an election in which the words “can” and “will” have come up more than once before (i.e., the contrast between “yes we can” and “yes she will”).

daryl_herbert on March 6, 2008 at 7:46 PM

She is prepping for 2012.
- McCain is expected to only do one term due to age.
- Obama, if he got the job would either self-destruct the Dem position or be unassailable for a re-election. (prob the former).

She wants to get the job and the only way she has a shot if she does not get the nom this year, is if McCain wins…

DJ Elliott on March 6, 2008 at 8:11 PM

I was really hoping Hillary would pull off wins in Texas and Ohio so we’d see more of this gutter sniping. But now, I just wish she was gone. I just cannot stand hearing her voice anymore.

Here is a snippet of Her lifetime experience that may yet come in very handy:
A dark and stormy night….3am….the White house phone is ringing…..
Hellooo, it’s 3 in the morning here. Who is this…..Monica? Monica who? What??? Whady’ya mean come get my husband…..where is he…..where are you….What???? that @#$%#….not again…..#$%^@…….dial tone….

Now that’s experience, surely you can’t argue with that!!
Don’t call me Surely

Oh, and thanks for yet another anti-Obama campaign commercial this fall.

This is just getting started. We are in the process of watching the mighty fall. . . and it’s going to be ugly. Well, ugly in some sense and beautiful in another.

The media couldn’t have asked for a better circus. NC might even get some media money from the candidates.
