Evening quotes

June 28, 2008

“If we have to use force, it is because we are American. We are the indispensable nation. We stand tall. We see further into the future.” — Madeleine Albright in 1998, when she was Bill Clinton‘s Secretary of State.

“It’s clear that the true problems of our Nation are much deeper – deeper than gasoline lines of energy shortages, deeper even than inflation or recession. And I realize more than ever that as President I need your help. So, I decided to reach out and listen to the voices of America.” – democrat President Jimmy Carter

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” — Republican President Teddy Roosevelt.

“The public understands that Republicans want to fight terrorists, but Democrats only want to fight Republicans.” — Ace

“I voted for the Democrats because I didn’t like the way the Republicans were running the country. Which is turning out to be like shooting yourself in the head to stop your headache.” — Jack Mayberry

The Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel: ultra-left class warrior, defender of the inheritance tax — and trust-fund heiress who fought the IRS all the way to the Supreme Court to avoid paying $2 million in estate taxes.

How’d That Work Out?

October 8, 2006

Mike of Mike’s America asks that important question. Let’s put it into context. North Korea, run by a musical obsessed madman, demands that the United States of America talk to him or he’ll set off a nuclear bomb.

Mike points out that:

It seems everyone ignores the fact that we HAVE talked to the North Koreans, as recently as last October, as part of the six nation framework to deal with the problem.

…and just as important:

And of course the same people demanding talks that exclude allies like Japan and South Korea, and strategic competitors like China and Russia have been shouting the loudest that the U.S. should not act “unilaterally.”

So…just did how all that talking work out in the past?
Under the watchful eye of Billy Jeff Clinton and Madeline Chamberlain, with an assist from Jimmy Carter, we got:

Last time we did the direct talk, talk, talk routine between the U.S. and North Korea, we ended up agreeing to provide the Stalinist regime food aid which freed up millions of dollars for North Korea’s crazy dictator to spend on “other” needs.

We also provided BILLIONS of dollars to build two nuclear power plants, which we presumed would take away any desire for North Korea to develop it’s own nuclear technology.

As soon as the $$$ started flowing, North Korea began cheating on the agreements.

A fine example of doublespeak

September 15, 2004

On Meet the Press, Kerry adviser and former Clinton Sec. of State Madeleine Albright (also known as Madeleine Chamberlain or Neville Albright) put forth the following:

Russert: But didn’t North Korea develop a nuclear bomb on Bill Clinton’s watch?

Albright: No, what they were doing, as it turns out, they were cheating. And the reason that you have arms control agreements is you don’t make them with your friends, you make them with your enemies. And it’s the process that is required to hold countries accountable. The worst part that has happened under the agreed framework, there was these fuel rods, and the nuclear program was frozen. Those fuel rods have now been reprocessed, as far as we know, and North Korea has a capability, which at one time might have been two potential nuclear weapons, up to six to eight now, we’re not really clear. But in this period of time when there has not enough action been taken, I think that the threat from North Korea has increased.

Ok…so what she is saying is that under the Clinton Treaty, North Korea could go a head a develop a nuclear bomb.
What job is she sucking up for in a Kerry administration?
