Fox Panel’s Critique of Hillary’s Speech Revisited
Last night I posted my reaction to the Fox Brit Hume panel’s initial comments on Hillary’s speech in “Bill Kristol and His Fox Team See No Good, Hear No Good and Say No Good in and about Hillary’s Speech.”
After listening a while to what I felt were Mizaru, Kikazaru, Iwazaru, and Shizaru doing an antithetical version of “see no evil, hear no evil, and say no evil,” I could not stomach it any longer and switched to more sane news sources.
Curious this morning about my recollection, I tried to find a transcript of Brit Hume’s Panel’s critique of Hillary’s speech, to no avail (perhaps one of our readers can help).
But, I did find a transcript of Hillary’s rousing speech in the New York Times.
The following are the parts of Hillary’s speech that the Fox panel–especially good, ole Kristol–did not seem to have heard.
For the sake of space and brevity, I have omitted the numerous “APPLAUSE” entries between Hillary’s lines:
You know, I’m — I’m here tonight as a proud mother, as a proud Democrat, as a proud senator from New York, a proud American, and a proud supporter of Barack Obama.
Barack Obama is my candidate, and he must be our president.
We need to elect Barack Obama, because…
We need a president who understands we.. (She certainly wasn’t talking about McCain)
We need a president who understands that.. (Ditto)
Barack Obama began his career fighting for workers…
And when Barack Obama is in the White House, he’ll…
And if we do our part, we’ll do it again with President Obama and the Democrats.
And I cannot wait to watch Barack Obama sign into law a health care plan that covers every single American.
And we know that President Obama will end the war in Iraq responsibly…
And Barack will have with him a terrific partner in Michelle Obama.
And Americans are fortunate that Joe Biden will be at Barack Obama’s side…
And, remember, before we can keep going, we’ve got to get going by electing Barack Obama the next president of the United States
That is our mission, Democrats. Let’s elect Barack Obama and Joe Biden for that future worthy of our great country.
I guess Kristol was right, Hillary did not passionately urge her supporters to vote for Obama, to elect him as the next president. No way, no how…
