Hillary: You’re Either With Us or Against Us - In Fundraising


Is it just me, or is Hillary’s message to her donors — “NO money to anybody else. You cannot play both sides of the street” — sound kind of like President George W. Bush’s message after 9/11? “You’re either with us or against us”?

Have we entered some sort of Bizarro World where shades of gray, neutrality, and nuance are permitted in nations’ stances in the war on terror, but not among donors in the Democratic primary?

Then again, apparently she believes we should talk to Hezbollah, “to understand better what we can do to defeat those who are aiming their hatred, their extremism and their weapons at us.” I’m sure the AIPAC crowd loved that line of thinking.
