Why Do Conservatives Hate Hillary Clinton So Much?

Wed Oct 06, 2004 9:17 am

Hillary Rodham was born in to an upper-middle class family of suburban Chicago. She was a Republican until she met William (Bill) Jefferson Clinton. Clinton himself was a southern conservative Democrat so there was no sharp contrast in ideology.

Hillary Rodham Clinton was not the first First Lady to play an active role in her husband's administration. Other First Ladys' such as Nancy Regan, Betty Ford and Eleanor Roosevelt played active roles in there husband's administrations.

Now a U.S. Senator from New York, she has proven to be very moderate. The Senior Senator from New York (Charles Shumer) has a more liberal voting record than Hillary Clinton yet conservatives love to rack her name across the coals.
What gives?

If John Kerry loses this election, Hillary Rodham Clinton my be the nominee in 2008 and she could very well win.
What are conservatives going to do then?

Because they hate Bill, it's called guilty-by-association.

A good 99% of people do it, it ain't right, but it still happens. Heck I've seen you do it, so calm down. Big grin

I suspect it has something to do with the fact that she spoke-up during almost all of Bill's legislatures except his last presidency.
The fact remains that ,at that time, she didn't hold any official office, was never elected for something and actually shouldn't have been so loud.
Being the spous of a political figure doesn't give you the voice and you are not supposed to abuse your position so that you can proclaim your beliefs.

I don't hate Hillary Clinton. I do, however, have a profound difference of opinion with her politically.

I think the thing most people (myself included) find most distasteful about Mrs. Clinton is that she displays her political views with an "I know what's best for you," attitude that almost comes across as condescending and smug.

Not only the arguement of putting women in power, but she has a terrible, limited track record. 4 (then it would be 8) years of Senator experience...a crappy one at that...sure as heck doesn't entitle her to it....you know the only reason she went for NY senator was for "resume" experience. I don't think America is ready for another 4 Clinton years...ever.

The type of men who are afraid of Hillary are those who feel esmasculated at the drop of a hat. "Aggresive" women really scare these types... they don't know what to do with them ... so they trash them..anyway they can. An aggressive male is simply a determined and driven achiever.. the same woman be comes a loud mouth biatch.

I think they hate her because she represents a strong, independent woman, something the modern ERA-hating Republican party detests. To most modern Republicans, a woman has to be some submissive piece of arm candy *cough Laura Bush cough* in order to be of use. As for misogyny, when a Southern Republican is running on a platform of making ALL abortion illegal, including in cases of rape, incest, or when the child's life is in danger and demeaningly refers to his opponent as "a nice lady," as Jim DeMint is doing here in South Carolina, then yeah, I could see how some would regard Republicans and Southerners as misogynists.

It's not just conservatives. I am a true and proud liberal, and I can't stand her.

If she were to run in 2012 (after kerry has two terms) I don't know what I would do.

I am pissed that she felt she deserved to be senetor. I could have respected her if she had gone back to Little Rock and ran for congress, and worked her way up, like eveyone else has to do.

Why Do Conservatives Hate Hillary Clinton So Much?

Simple. It's because she blatantly pushed a health care reform despite having no mandate to do so. She was an unelected first lady. To venture into policy areas was inappropriate.

Not as blatantly & aggressively as HRC. Nor in such a central policy area as health care.

Nancy Reagan and her "just say no" drug slogan is harmless. HRC and her aggressive health care reform is unacceptable meddling in political policy.

Which she undertook under her husband's appointment of her to the commission in light of her performance on a similar commission in Arkansas. When the President of the US asks you to sit on a commission or a panel, one's hardly in a position to say no. Had she NOT, then she would have been castigated for "not caring about America's health care system." Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Modern day Republicans seem to forget that the first woman elected to the Senate was a Republican.

There are a few good women in the U.S. Senate from the South such as Mary Landrieu and Blanche Lambert Lincoln.
Dole and Hutchinson are just cheerleaders.


The people here who are bashing Hillary Clinton are ignoring the fact that Nancy Regan was a hands on First Lady as well. Why do you folks ignore that?

New York was an ideal choice because it had an open Senate seat and is the most liberal state in the country. In other words, it was the easiest possible choice. Her quest became even easier when Rudy Giuliani dropped out of contention (he was never officially in) and was replaced as the Republican candidate by Rick Lazio, who ran one of the poorest campaigns imaginable - after getting the nomination, just a few months before the election, his first order of business was to take a two-week family vacation.

Mary Landrieu, good? LMAO!

New York was an ideal choice because because she never would've possibly been elected in Arkansas. EVER.



And the tired old schtick about how Southerners or conservatives can't stand accomplished women just shows how bigoted the announcer of such a "fact" is.

My mother, for example, is a fine lady from Mississippi, and compared to her, Garnetpalmetto hasn't accomplished 1/4 of what she has, and BN747 not even 1/2. For example, by the time she was 25 she already had two bachelor's degrees, taught high school for a year, obtained her PPL, and was married. That's more than either of you can claim.

And yes, my mother thinks Hillary is trash: not because she's powerful, but because of her demonstrated lack of morals and integrity, plus her consuming lust for power.

For example, by the time she was 24 she already had two bachelor's degrees, taught high school for a year, obtained her PPL, and was married. That's more than either of you can claim.

So your mother is a motivated, driven woman. Good for her, MD-90. In addition to that, she turned out a loyal son who I do enjoy sparring with via a.net. Call it the Old South vs. New South showdown  Wink/being sarcastic

I'm speaking from my experiences though, and from what I've seen, conservatives in the South (not of our generation, mind you, but of 1-2 generations ahead of us) do have problems with women in positions of power. Going back to the Senate race here in SC, one somewhat prominent Republican backer has stated that he believes Inez Tenenbaum is ill-qualified because "women are more emotional." Now if that doesn't sound like tripe from some 1950s rag supporting the Cult of Domesticity, I don't know what else is. Attack her for a lack of experience outside of being our Superintendent of Education, sure, I can deal with that. Criticize her work as Superintendent of Education, again, I feel is fair game. Saying she's incapable of the job because she possesses different genitalia? THAT's the kind of crap that gives our fair home a bad name, MD-90. Thankfully, I do believe it's dying out as that generation retires and dies away and people like yourself - who were exposed to strong women who could do all that AND raise a family - begin to take positions within the Party.

And by the by, had I wanted to, I could have gotten two B.A.s at this point in time. However, after losing my father halfway through my Sophomore year of college, I dropped the B.A. program in History so that I would have more time to spend with my mother. I judged her sanity and mine to be more important than an extra diploma at that time.

Perhaps because she is basically a socialist.

And the stong woman argument has no merit. See Liz Dole, and Kay Bailey Hutchinson.

I think too it may because she is basically a coat tail rider who couldn't even control her own house, but yet expects us to believe she could control a country.

Junior (MD90).. I don't know what prompted you to measure your mom up against myself of Garnet.. as I suspected .. you confirmed you're more ignorant that you let on. When your mom has had dinner with Donald Trump, flown to London and met up with the owner of an NFL football team and attended a game with him (to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii with another), employed 17 people from a business of her doing from scratch, gone to Athens for a long-weekend, I won't bring in attending movie premieres...and that is chump's play compared to what I'm about to embark upon (achievement wise)... no.. your mom can't even stand in my shadow. And shame on you for bringing her into some stupid blathering drivel... you singlehandedly make the case for abortion MD90.

If you think for one minute that I'd trade my life (past alone) to get two degrees and teach at some University and end up living in Mississippi or Alabama over one of the best neighborhoods in America... you are dumber than you sound.

Simple. It's because she blatantly pushed a health care reform despite having no mandate to do so. She was an unelected first lady. To venture into policy areas was inappropriate.

And it's ignorant in-the-box, one-dimensional thinking like this.. why Health Care and Pharmecutical companies are 'sticking it' to the common citizen, who's falling farther and farther behind in a losing economic plight they can not when.

I don't know if it is already mentioned here but I seem to recall that Oprah Winfrey also carry's a lot of moral weight and some said that she would actually be a good presidential candidate, she is a (very) succesfull business woman, a public figure, extremely media trained and experienced, she has a lot of credibility among all races and she is a black (=minority) woman.
One thing is: I would love to see her in a debate, she would blow the opposition away if you ask me.

What kind of accomplishment is that? Having lunch with the Donald, big deal. Having the money to go to Athens, wow. Name dropping is such an accomplishment. How about you make a perfect 36 on the ACT; get married; raise a few kids; get your pilot's license and instrument rating; actually have a title (hers is P.E., Professional Engineer); get a teaching certificate; get a Master's degree (hers is from Renssalaer Polytechnic); learn how to be a home inspector and actually inspect numerous buildings; become a Master Gardner (valedictorian in her class of 40, and she was one of the few actively working people: most were either housewives or retired); or become an accomplished ballroom dancer (she almost goes out more than I do!)?

You're confusing personal accomplishment with elitist snobbery.



Yeah but I bet his mom could kick your mom's ass.

More like kick his ass. She's a black belt in Wado Ryu Karate (formerly one of the "3 old brown belt broads," now's she one of the "3 new Black Belt Ladies". Although she is 55, which is why she carries her .38 with her pretty much wherever she goes.



just think had history been different and she never met Bill y'all very well might be putting her up on a pedestal.

I dunno. While I didn't know that she had campaigned for Goldwater, I have read her commencement speech which was given at Wellesley when she was 21. She was the first student ever to do so at commencement (which is an accomplishment in and of itself). Her topic was defending her generation's use of "social protest" for "constructive change". She was at least a wanna-be socialist at that point.

But you're right that the younger generations are different.

Hillary really opened herself to VALID criticism when she waltzed into Congress with her healthcare plans (did she really think that Republicans were going to play dead and acquiesce to her Prada power dress and heels? Please Hillary, this is not Lil' Rock).

However, she was lambasted even before she trotted up to the Hill. I think that when it comes to the White House, there really is a strange misogynistic trend in America. The Bill-haters latched onto her "I won't bake cookies" comment and turned her into Lady Macbeth even before the inaugural. And in this media age, its not hard. I think that Eleanor Roosevelt would have had a tougher time today than she did 65 years ago.

The woman is super-intelligent, but she can't do saccharine sweet. When she does, she sounds phony. And if you aint a cheerleader with big hair who stands by your man in politics (i.e., Liddy Dole) people are not going to like you.

And if Hillary is a socialist (please, how many law firm partners who make $ 400 K a year are socialists?), then all of America is.

Well, I think Hillary is pretty much of a socialist when it comes to "us". It's O.K. for "them" (ie: the country club of $400K+ partners and such), but when we aren't in their club, we should depend on them because they know what's best. Hmmmm.

I've never been a fan of relying on government to solve all problems for the individual, and certainly do not believe in being beholding to them to decide 'fairness'. Certainly history shows that more often than not, when big government gets their snouts into the private sector, things usually get worse, no?

I'm also of the opinion that even though Hillary is definately a smart, strong woman, she almost exudes this "I'm smarter and better than you, so I know what's best for you" attitude. These are personal reasons why I dislike her, and if I might say so, don't really trust her either. Regards...Jack

Hi All,
I'm more of a moderate, but I don't like Hillary at all. Say what you want about Bill Clinton, but he was considered a charming guy. The guy had an interesting personality...Hillary just grates on me...She's like an Ice Queen. I find Theresa Heinz more entertaining in a shrew sort of way. Like some have said, she comes across as fake..Any attempt at levity appears to be forced. She's intelligent, but I think lacks the charisma to be a President. She needs lessons from her husband LOL

oh, plus shes done some good stuff for my state and strongly advocated for terrorism preention funding when the state govt and the fed govt have been severly lacking in providing funds to allow the city to protect itself.

RE: Why Do Conservatives Hate Hillary Clinton So M

What kind of accomplishment is that? Having lunch with the Donald, big deal. Having the money to go to Athens, wow. Name dropping is such an accomplishment. How about you make a perfect 36 on the ACT; get married; raise a few kids; get your pilot's license and instrument rating; actually have a title (hers is P.E., Professional Engineer); get a teaching certificate; get a Master's degree (hers is from Renssalaer Polytechnic); learn how to be a home inspector and actually inspect numerous buildings; become a Master Gardner (valedictorian in her class of 40, and she was one of the few actively working people: most were either housewives or retired); or become an accomplished ballroom dancer (she almost goes out more than I do!)?

You're confusing personal accomplishment with elitist snobbery.


First of all it's dinner with Trump dimwit..not lunch.

Secondly, you're clearly too stupid to see behind your 'snobbery' remark that it takes a great of accomplishment to 'get there'..something you or your mom will never know anything about.

WTF is so grand about being a building inspector? Test scores??? Or a valedictorian (who remembers that shit anyway?). A ballroom dancer??? Your cheese has really slid off your cracker! Look where all this has got her... living in a crappy state raising a loser kid who spends half his time at Band Camp blowing a flute. ... Yeah that's a big achievement.. boy am I envious of that.
I won't even sink to the level of discussing kicking some 55 year-old lady's ass.. Dude, I spend a great number of years in Asia (and I did a lot more than eat Chinese and Japanese food), but I'll leave you fantasize with that seriously warped and off-the-deep-end, kiltered thinking (boy, you couldn't be more clueless of what or who you're talking about). Like I said.. your mom would have probably achieved much more had she aborted the dead weight that became you. Sorry chum(p)... I'm sure your mom is the world to you and that's the way it should be.. but you should have a bit more integrity about discussing her is such fashion as you've chosen her... it is impressive she has a pilot's liscense (since I love aviation, you gotta like that).. but who can't get that? Half the 16 year-olds her have one! I'm in no way envious of them for doing so, in fact I'm happy for them...

But her's a suggestion.. show this thread to your mom and report back to us how she slapped the hell out of you for being so stupid for discussing her in such a manner.

Jamesag96.. your comment is just flat out asinine to consider a response.

I don't recall anyone asking for your resume. Besides, why are you talking to us on an internet message board if you're as important and busy as you claim to be.

Re-read the thread, player-hater, the nutjob said...

Garnetpalmetto hasn't accomplished 1/4 of what she has, and BN747 not even 1/2

And that isn't even close to my resume. Secondly, where did I say I was so super busy or even mentioned it? Where did I say I sooo important? Oh... this is you like MD90 ASSuming again and drawing your own conclusions as if you know everthing based on a few statements.

What do I have to be.. a lavatory truck driver to post on A.net. For chrissakes...everyone here isn't a baggage handler. I'm sure there some people posting here who have accomplished more than I have. There isn't a busy person I know of who doesn't piss away time screwing around on the internet in some form or another... this happens to be one I like (if that's okay by you). And while Europe this summer, I still managed to squeeze in a few comments. What do you care? You EA CO AS have been a member on this site 4 months more than I have, yet you have more than double my post...apparently, I don't have enough free time. But would I want your job???... I seriously doubt it.

Re-read what you wrote - again, can you tell me where his diminishing your achievements constitutes us wanting to know them?

Your resume was unnecessary - and frankly, unimpressive.

You EA CO AS have been a member on this site 4 months more than I have, yet you have more than double my post...apparently, I don't have enough free time.

I'm also not the one here who is spouting off about my alleged major life achievements like - oooh! - having dinner with someone!  Insane

would I want your job???... I seriously doubt it.

Could you DO my job? I seriously doubt that, too.

If you're doing it.. I'm 100% sure I can... the question is.. would I want to? Without knowing what it is.. the answer is a unequivocal qualified...NO! You sound like a miserable person... that job.. whatever it is... is working you kid!

But it does have an upside... it allows you post on A.net like there's no tomorrow!

Your resume was unnecessary - and frankly, unimpressive.

Well.. one it isn't a resume, I thought of all people...you'd be smart enough to discern that. Oh well yes, I did do those things with the goal in mind to impress YOU or MD90... Dude whatever's got you corked..seek relief immediately! Name one person who gives a rat's ass on what impresses you.

I tried, but your mom wasn't home.  Big grin


Seriously though...BN, you're a smart guy - and even though we give each other a huge amount of crap, I genuinely like you.

Yyz717:
Nancy Reagan and her "just say no" drug slogan is harmless.

..and ineffective.


Cptkrell:
I'm also of the opinion that even though Hillary is definately a smart, strong woman, she almost exudes this "I'm smarter and better than you, so I know what's best for you" attitude.

I can type a long list of male politicians from both political parties that act the same way.

"I am pissed that she felt she deserved to be senetor. I could have respected her if she had gone back to Little Rock and ran for congress, and worked her way up, like eveyone else has to do." I live in Arkansas, and I can confidently tell you, IT WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED. People here don't really care for the Clintons anymore. The first four years people down here still liked him enough for most to vote for him, but after the last four he became very unpopular. Also I want to know what all this crap about bashing southerners is all about? The vast majority of men in the South don't have a problem with a women being president. We just have a beef with socialists, which means we have a beef with Hillary. It has nothing to do with gender, just politics.

Now THERE'S a bit of irony - the government pays subsidies to tobacco cartels...who are sued for punitive cash awards by the government for selling a cancer-causing product!  Nuts

Because those that are screaming 'Socialism' are too far gone and locked into fuming at 'average Joe lunch-bucket' scamming off welfare/unemployement bennies and illegal aliens. They are unable to lift their heads high enough for just a sec... to take a look at corporate welfare rip offs. Plus the numbers (being in the billions) are so staggering, they can't fathom how it it's possible. But average joe scamming a few hundred here and there is easy to interpret and an easier target to bitch about ... along with women of any influence who 'step up' and start speaking out (about anything) over microphone'

This very same mindset is similar to that of young Dubya stomping around Harvard bitching about what was socialism back in the 60's. By the way, thanks for that post about Dubya's professor Sup'fly... I've shared that with a slew of people and they were absolutely blown away at how it explained who we are dealing with today.
