During the latest Democratic town hall on MSNBC, Hillary Clinton once again defended her vote for the Iraq War. This time, Clinton expanded on her reasoning for the ‘yes’ vote when she was in the U.S. Senate representing New York. She stated that it was a favor for President George W. Bush.
When responding to Chris Matthews’ question as to why she was wrong in voting for the Iraq War while Sanders was right in voting against, Hillary also admitted to having had “a different set of experiences” with ‘W.’ than Senator Bernie Sanders did.
“I’m sitting there in the Oval Office, and Bush says to me, ‘What do you need?’ And I said, ‘I need $20 billion to rebuild, you know, New York,’ and he said, ‘You got it.’ And he was good to his word.”
“Literally, that same day, I get back to the Capitol, and the Republicans are trying to take that money away. We kept calling the White House, Bush kept saying, ‘I gave them my word, I’m going to stick with it.’ So, you know, I had a different set of experiences.”
This is yet another glaring example of how Hillary Clinton is easily bought and sold, proving that the only thing she can be trusted for is making selfishly motivated decisions that are wrong for everyone else should Ms. Clinton be elected as President of the United States.
The Iraq War is unequivocally one of the worst political blunders ever and is one that will forever leave a bloody stain on U.S. history.
