Wow, how much things change, how much they stay the same. Doesn’t Hillary sound a great deal like George W. Bush in the months following 9/11? At that time and for years afterwards he was excoriated by the political left over this (and rightly so, imho). But do you think Hillary will get a pass from the political left, or will she be held to the same standard? (pic via AFP/Drudge)

My Way News – Clinton asks Congress, whose side are you on?: “MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica (AP) – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is questioning the priorities of lawmakers criticizing the U.S. intervention in Libya. She’s asking bluntly, ‘Whose side are you on?’ Setting up a showdown on Libya, House Republicans agreed Wednesday to vote on dueling measures, one to give President Barack Obama limited authority to continue U.S. involvement in the NATO-led operation against Moammar Gadhafi and the other to cut off funds for military hostilities. The measures reflect widespread dissatisfaction with Obama’s decision not to seek congressional consent for the 3-month-old war. Clinton says Congress is free to raise objections but questions the priorities of the critics. She says the Obama administration and its partners are rightly siding with the Libyan people.”
