Senator Clinton Takes Off the Mask

Hillary has convinced a lot of people that she is a moderate, including, I confess, myself at times. Shame on me for falling for the hype...when push comes to shove, her true face shows. Consider the following from a 'Women for Hillary' fundraiser:

The senator said that left unchallenged, Republican leaders could ram through extremist judges, wreck Social Security, and make unacceptable concessions to China, Saudi Arabia and other nations that finance the United States budget deficit.

"There has never been an administration, I don't believe in our history, more intent upon consolidating and abusing power to further their own agenda," Mrs. Clinton told the gathering.

"I know it's frustrating for many of you, it's frustrating for me. Why can't the Democrats do more to stop them?" she continued to growing applause. "I can tell you this: It's very hard to stop people who have no shame about what they're doing. It is very hard to tell people that they are making decisions that will undermine our checks and balances and constitutional system of government who don't care. It is very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth."

The New York senator went on to say, speaking of the Republican leadership:
"Some honestly believe they are motivated by the truth, they are motivated by a higher calling, they are motivated by, I guess, a direct line to the heavens."
This is not the language of a moderate; it is not the language of a Democrat who wants to reach out to conservatives, religious or otherwise; instead, it's the same ol', same ol'...the more things change...well, you know the rest.
