The ‘smears’ against General Clark continue. The other day, Gen. Hugh Shelton stated he would not vote for Clark. Now, in an obvious smear, Drudge is using Clark’s own words against him:
Democratic presidential hopeful General Wesley Clark offered lavish praise for the Bush Administration and its key players in a speech to Republicans — just two years ago, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal!
During extended remarks delivered at the Pulaski County GOP Lincoln Day Dinner in Little Rock, Arkansas on May 11, 2001, General Clark declared: “And I’m very glad we’ve got the great team in office, men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice… people I know very well – our president George W. Bush. We need them there.”
A video of Clark making the comments has surfaced, DRUDGE can reveal.
That ought to play well with the base, which is composed of rabid Bush haters. Then there is this story:
Presidential front-runner Gen. Wesley Clark blew a gasket while attending a conference in California several years ago, throwing a temper tantrum so ugly that it “had to be seen to be believed,” according to one eyewitness.
The account of Clark’s meltdown comes from WABC Radio’s Monica Crowley, who attended the event and personally witnessed the future presidential candidate in full hissy-fit mode.
“At the end of the conference, everybody was sort of leaving the hotel and checking out at the same time,” Crowley told her audience Wednesday night.
“Clark proceeded to throw a fit that had to be seen to be believed – something about how his luggage was being handled,” she explained.
Crowley said Clark was so “abusive, condescending and mean” to the hotel staff that the conference organizer later felt compelled to apologize on his behalf.
The left’s race to embrace their very model of a modern major general is looking funnier and funnier. Do they even vet their candidates? “Look- he’s a general and a democrat- nominate him!” I wonder what shoe will drop today.
