Hillary Clinton Says America’s Democracy Has Been Around a Lot Longer Than Europe’s Democracy
While Hillary Clinton was in Europe, and in between her fumbling the names of the European leaders in a manner that the left would have skewered President Bush for, Hillary Clinton made another gaffe.
“It is hard enough with two parties to come to any resolution, and I say this very respectfully, because I feel the same way about our own democracy, which has been around a lot longer than European democracy.”
This comment had the people gathered there shaking their heads as it is simply not true. Was this a horrible gaffe that will irrevocably harm relations between Europe and America? Hardly. I only bring it up to compare Hillary Clinton to President Bush for the second time in this post.
It wasn’t all that long ago when the former president said,”as the people of the world’s largest democracy recover from these attacks, they can count on the world’s oldest democracy to stand by their side.” He was referring to America as the world’s oldest Democracy. This drew the usual attacks of “Bush is an idiot,” and so on from the left wing blogs. They were abuzz at the former president’s stupidity and lack of knowledge of history.
But here we have the venerable Hillary Clinton saying basically the same thing as President Bush and I just thought it was worth mentioning. George Bush was stupid, but we are supposed to cut Hillary some slack because as the article says, she was tired.
