Tom Hayden Says Hillary Clinton Is Like Richard Nixon

Liberals, the gift that just keeps on giving. Obama and Hillary, worse and worser.

Tom Hayden Looks at Clinton's 60s Past

In The Nation, former 60s radical Tom Hayden -- in an essay called "Why Hillary Makes My Wife Scream" -- hammers Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, for attacking Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, for his association with former Weather Underground member William Ayers. "Hillary is blind to her own roots in the sixties," Hayden writes. "She was in Chicago for three nights during the 1968 street confrontations. She chaired the 1970 Yale law school meeting where students voted to join a national student strike again an 'unconscionable expansion of a war that should never have been waged.' She was involved in the New Haven defense of Bobby Seale during his murder trial in 1970, as the lead scheduler of student monitors. ... She wrote that abused children were citizens with the same rights as their parents.

"Most significantly in terms of her recent attacks on Barack, after Yale law school, Hillary went to work for the left-wing Bay Area law firm of Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein, which specialized in Black Panthers and West Coast labor leaders prosecuted for being communists. Two of the firm's partners, according to Treuhaft, were communists and the two others 'tolerated communists'. Then she went on to Washington to help impeach Richard Nixon, whose career was built on smearing and destroying the careers of people through vague insinuations about their backgrounds and associates. ...

"All these were honorable words and associations in my mind, but doesn't she see how the Hillary of today would accuse the Hillary of the sixties of associating with black revolutionaries who fought gun battles with police officers, and defending pro-communist lawyers who backed communists? Doesn't the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whom Hillary attacks today, represent the very essence of the black radicals Hillary was associating with in those days? And isn't the Hillary of today becoming the same kind of guilt-by-association insinuator as the Richard Nixon she worked to impeach?"

Hey Hillary, with friends like this... it would be easier to dodge sniper fire.

One-upmanship As Reconciliation

Wright at the National Press Club is doing his judgemental one man show. Chastising those that have not read what he has read or have taken away from their reading a different interpretation Wright is giving his interpretation of what the world should be. His world is worse off for white men, especially white American men according to the Black Liberation theology of Wright.

After listening to his speech I envision a train wreck at which the survivors are desperately looking at what should be done to clean up the mess of scattered ruin while the train engineer smugly avers that the mess is better understood when people apologize for the inherent wrongness of the way the system was built.

Wright spoke defiantly, always switching the point to keep his opponents off kilter and made any question a personal attack on him, blacks and the black church. Wright spoke, smirked and ridiculed just as a smart ass punk does in the school yard. Wright answers only to his god and thus is infallible while saying Obama is only doing what politicians do which is to be a two-faced liar because that is politically expedient.

In short, Wright believes that all that has happened is really just an attack on the black church, but he is available to be Vice President.

Wright is simply using God and Obama to further himself because in the end, it is all about Jeremiah Wright. Wright is shameless.
