Clinton: "Rules? We Don't Need No Stinking Rules"

Here she goes again!

On Sept. 1 2007, Hillary Clinton accepted and signed the pledge regarding DNC rules barring any other states having a primary earlier than the specified date. Michigan and Florida disregarded these rules. The candidates agreed not to campaign in those two states, and that any results from those states would not be counted. She agreed upon these rules before the election and now because she is losing, she wants them counted!
What about your signed pledge, Hillary? - Is your word not worth anything?

DNC Chairman Howard Dean
Letter to Democratic Presidential Candidates
August 31, 2007

As the leader of the Democratic Party, I strongly urge you to adhere to the 2008 Delegate Selection Rules...
The 2008 Delegate Selection Rules adopted by the full DNC at its August 2006 meeting clearly provide that only 4 states - Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire and South Carolina - may hold their respective contests prior to February 5, 2008. The [Rules and Bylaws Committee's] findings of Non-Compliance include a 100% loss of pledged and unpledged delegates.

Clinton Campaign
Statement On The
Four State Pledge

We believe Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina play a unique and special role in the nominating process. And we believe the DNC's rules and its calendar provide the necessary structure to respect and honor that role. Thus we will be signing the pledge to adhere to the DNC approved nominating calendar.

We have had a President these past seven years who has done nothing but lie to the American people. Hillary Clinton's blatant disregard for the truth is a warning flag to ALL Americans as to what kind of character she has and what kind of President she will become. She lied about her Bosnia Adventure "dodging sniper fire"; she lied about being against NAFTA from the beginning; she lied about speaking out against Iraq before Obama; she lied on the stump about a young woman who supposedly died for lack of $100; and the lies continue . . .

Truth and Hillary Clinton seldom walk on the same side of the street. President? I don't think so.
