Hillary: Al Qaeda Will Be Emboldened If Democrats Don't Nominate Me

I seem to remember an awful lot of screeching by the liberal media when Republicans have dared to note that Al Qaeda takes note of the election returns, and often has a favorite in American elections.

There's a bit of consistency here as the AP seems somewhat peeved that Hillary would take such a swipe at The Obamessiah (Bringer of Hope), but I also note this rule is only invoked to protect Democrats. When Democrats suggest the world will be less safe if a Republican is elected because it will increase hatred all over the Muslim world, we never hear a peep about this "rule" that it's out-of-bounds to suggest that elections may have consequences beyond the borders of the US.

Hillary Clinton on Monday warned that Al-Qaeda watched US elections, urging Americans not to risk electing an inexperienced president, in her latest implicit swipe at rival Barack Obama.

In one of her most overt plays of the national security card yet, the senator from New York noted that days after Gordon Brown became British Prime Minister, militants planted bombs which failed to explode.

"I don't think it was by accident that Al-Qaeda decided to test the new prime minister," Clinton said here, referring to two devices which did not go off in London and a car which was crashed into Glasgow airport in June.

"They watch our elections as closely as we do ... they play our allies."

...

"You are hiring a president who will be here when the chips are down, and problems pile up, because that's when you really need somebody who knows exactly what has to be done, to make the tough decisions."

Hillary must be shell-shocked -- she's being treated poorly by the press, which clearly favors her rival. She's being treated, in fact, a bit like a Republican.

Welcome to the party, pal. Feel our pain.

Of course, she's not being treated with utter contempt. The press reserves that treatment for actual Republicans, as this comparison of Matt Lauer's interviews with Hillary and Romney demonstrates.
