Hillary Clinton & Karl Marx.
Mitt Romney recently equated Hillary Clinton to Karl Marx. A completely fair comparison, ideologically-speaking.
Hillary was also called "Bush-Cheney Lite" by Obama. A completely absurd and off-the-mark comparison, at least in the way B. H. Obama, Jr. intended it.
So, which assertion was tacitly accepted by the Hillary campaign, and which assertion warranted its own email to the nearly 1 million email addresses on the Hillary campaign list?
Well, I received the Hillary email and noticed something very interesting:
The full email is in the extended entry of this post.
The line that really bothered me:
"Can you imagine?? Hillary like George Bush??!! Or Dick Cheney!!"
Shouldn't there be some sort of reference to Marx in that line? About how Hillary has stood up for free enterprise, or how she wants American business to succeed, or how during her husband's tenure, x many jobs were created and the stock market went up x %. Something. Anything. Even if it's not true, even if it is a stretch, shouldn't the campaign have at least attempted to refute that line, since they brought it up?
Or else, maybe remove the reference entirely from the very first line of the email?
Nowhere in the email is there any reference to how the Hillary=Marx comparison is absurd or baseless or desperate or anything.
Meanwhile, however, Patti Solis Doyle (Hillary's campaign manager) practically throws a hissy fit over the bizarre, nonsensical comparison betweeen Senator Clinton and President Bush.
Two years ago, I made a post regarding Hillary Clinton's chances at winning a nationwide election. I still believe she has no chance at actually winning the general election in 2008, but the Marxist impulses of the entire Democratic field are genuinely frightening for this country. We who love freedom had better be prepared to immediately get behind our nominee 110%, because the left in this country-- feeling confident-- is trying to move us precisely to the sort of socialism that Europe is now trying to eschew.

Hillary can hardly wait to "TAKE" from the American people. AND take she will.

"I still believe she has no chance at actually winning the general election in 2008."
I think you have hit upon a good point here in comparing HRC's campaign reaction to the Romney=Marxism and the Obamma=Bush-Cheney. It just goes to show all the dems most important campaign strategy is to be completely against the current administration as the far left insists they must be.
Never once did HRC take a swipe at Obamma, the insult here was being compared to Bush-Cheney. As far as the Republicans are concerned and Maxrism comment, they won't respond at this point, the democrat opposition is Bush-Cheney.
But, sometime in 2008, the dems will wake up like Gomer Pyle and realize, "Sooprise, Sooprise, George Bush and Dick Cheney are not running in 2008."

Democratic candidates always promise to fight for you, or fight against whatever evil they think the Republicans are cooking up this week.
Republican candidates promise to work for you. When you are listening to radio ad, you tell the party from this contrast before it is announced.
It tells you a lot about how they look at the world. HRC's selling point is that she has fought, stood up to, challenged Bush, the Republicans, and "special interests." She actually hasn't done anything except complain. I guess that counts to Democrats.
