Hypocrisy from the Left

Questioner calls Bush ‘the bastard,’ Hillary Clinton smiles

One elderly woman rose and was asking the Democratic candidate about a rumored economic union among the United States, Canada and Mexico that is widely discussed, feared and abhorred among conspiracy fanciers. The woman said the president planned to implement the secret agreement in 2010.

Then the woman called the president “Bush the bastard.”

The Democratic crowd immediately roared its approval.

Color me shocked.

Sen. Clinton nodded her head slightly and smiled.

Then, she proceeded to … answer the question, saying “there’s not a lot of truth to it.”

So what’s the problem?

It’ll be interesting to see if Clinton’s silent assent to that crude comment arouses as much criticism and controversy as last year when a Republican woman in South Carolina asked Sen. John McCain about Clinton, calling her “the bitch.”

At the time, CNN showed a video clip of the incident and strongly criticized McCain for not admonishing the woman, although the candidate did say belatedly that he respected the New York senator.

Hmm, I betcha CNN didn’t complain about this. You’d think that as a ‘victim’ of such foul language that she wouldn’t put up with someone using foul language on another.  This is just another example of her low standards. Ya’ll really want 4/8 more years of this?
