Hillary says terrorism helps GOP

In her own words, from the NY Post:

"It's a horrible prospect to ask yourself, 'What if? What if?' But
if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect
to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again,
no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous
they have made the world," Clinton told supporters in Concord.

First of all, terrorism helps no one, not even the terrorists, but I get what she's saying. If we were to have a major attack on our country like 9/11, the American public would instinctively look to Republicans to protect them. What an astounding concession from a Party seeking to lead this country! And then you hear Democrat Congressman James Clyburn admitting that if America wins in Iraq "It would be bad for us".

I'm just astonished that this is OK with so many people in this country.

More-Mrs. Clinton continued “So I think I’m the best of the Democrats to deal with that,”. Don't worry! If we pull out of Iraq prematurely as many desire, and she's elected President, she'll have to "deal with that", meaning many more terrorist attacks. Wonder if she'll be lobbing cruise missiles on London or New York, using the same anti-terror strategy as her husband?
