Hillary Clinton Compares GOP House To A Plantation

And bashes Bush administration. Will stuff like this backfire on her?

NEW YORK - Sen. Hillary Clinton on Monday blasted the Bush administration as “one of the worst” in U.S. history and compared the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to a plantation where dissenting voices are squelched.

Speaking during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, Clinton also offered an apology to a group of Hurricane Katrina survivors “on behalf of a government that left you behind, that turned its back on you.”

Her remarks were met with thunderous applause by a mostly black audience at the Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem.

The House “has been run like a plantation, and you know what I’m talking about,” said Clinton, D-N.Y. “It has been run in a way so that nobody with a contrary view has had a chance to present legislation, to make an argument, to be heard.”

“We have a culture of corruption, we have cronyism, we have incompetence,” she said. “I predict to you that this administration will go down in history as one of the worst that has ever governed our country.”

A spokeswoman for the White House declined to comment and referred questions to the Republican National Committee.

RNC spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt said: “On a day when Americans are focused on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Hillary Clinton is focused on the legacy of Hillary Clinton.”



they had this poll on msnbc.com, the results so far are 52 % her remarks weren't too harsh, 46 % said they were. 2% said "don't know

Well it's true, but it probably will backfire a little.

People will yell "race card"

Yes, the unsubstantiated and unnecessary interjection of a racial image into the discussion will backfire on HRC.

And some people are ok with such behavior.

This liberal is not. I don't plan to support her for the nomination. Give me someone who's less self-absorbed.

Not surprising. Very cowardly if you ask me considering the audience. Reminds me of when stars go over seas to bash on America or the administration because they know it will get cheers.

i know.

thinking about race is *such* a drag.

it's way inappropriate to talk about race in front of an all-black audience. the nerve of her.

Has anyone else heard the tape?

The audience did not even react to the line. The silence speaks louder than words. They did not appreciate the comment either.

what would have been an appropriate reaction?

i am not defending her comments, i really don't care; i just find it silly when people love to play the race card by saying that someone else is playing the race card.

which happens *all* the time.

Are you suggesting that we cannot discuss if someone's racially charged comments are inappropriate? Or are such comments only permitted when suggesting racism?
