Our utterly brilliant Secretary of State managed to embarrass our entire nation today by screwing up a simple one word translation:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton greeted Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Geneva Friday with a special present: a reset button inside a gift box with a ribbon.
Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Lavrov pressed the button together at the beginning of their first meeting, and he said he would put in on his desk.
“I would like to present you with a little gift that represents what President Obama, Vice President Biden and I have been saying,” Mrs. Clinton said. “We want to reset our relationship, and so we will do it together.”
In addition to the red button on a black-and-yellow base, the State Department had written “reset” in English and what it thought was its Russian equivalent.
“We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it?” Mrs. Clinton asked Mr. Lavrov. Continue reading “Clinton’s State Department Can’t Translate ‘Reset’ into Russian”
The day after Hillary Clinton accepted the Secretary of State post the fact that New Mexican Governor Bill Richardson will be nominated as Commerce Secretary was leaked.
Yup, the man widely (and rightfully) referred to as “Judas” by the Clinton camp will now be working hand in hand with Hillary herself. Brilliant!
Forget the “team of rivals” label this is much closer to a “team of liberal who hate each other” shaping up. I guess we will have to wait and see how it plays out. The best we can hope for, i would think, is that they quickly implode and keep each other from implementing their idiotic lefty policies.
Barack Obama meet with Hillary Clinton Thursday in Chicago in order to talk about her about becoming his Secretary of State.
Or at least that’s what some Democratic officials are telling the AP.
So perhaps those original rumors were true? And maybe Hillary is now one step closer to being our nations top diplomat. Of course lots of people were saying Hillary would be Obama’s VP pick too and we all know how that turned out.
UPDATE: “Her’s to turn down”?
