Hillary: “We Should Not Be Sending Our Money to People Who Are Not Going to Support Our Values”


Kathryn noticed this comment from Hillary in the Corner:

Hillary Clinton vowed to pursue several specific goals if elected president, including universal health care, preschool for every child, and making college more affordable. She also pledged to promote energy independence and drew laughs from the crowd when she described replacing ordinary light bulbs with energy-efficient models and shutting off lights to conserve power.

“I turn off a light and say, ‘Take that, Iran,’ and “Take that, Venezuela.’ We should not be sending our money to people who are not going to support our values,” she said.

Ahem. Senator, would that apply to China? Have you gone through your houses and tried to eliminate any products made in and imported from China?

Also, you have to love the headline on that AP story: “Clintons make rare appearance together.”
