As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Hillary in 2004: Marriage Between Man and Woman “fundamental”

It’s intriguing on occasion to plumb the depths of Clinton – I mean both of them – insincerity by surveying their bows to political expediency.

Here is a fascinating clip of Hillary Clinton, courtesy of the Washington Examiner, expressing her fundamental, irrevocable certainty that marriage is between a man and a woman, and nothing else. Nine years later, with the political landscape changed, that was all out the window.

In these remarks, she was trying to explain how opposing a Constitutional amendment enshrining marriage as between a man and a woman made her no less supportive than anyone else of the principle. What’s bracing¬†here is how emphatic she was. She even invokes her scoundrel of a husband.

Here, have a laugh in the morning.

I believe that marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman. I have had occasion in my life to defend marriage, to stand up for marriage, to believe in the hard work and challenge of marriage. So I take umbrage at anyone who might suggest that those of us who worry about amending the Constitution are less committed to the sanctity of marriage, or to the fundamental bedrock principle that exists between a man and a woman, going back into the mists of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principal role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults.


Ahh, this mists of history. This is one item amidst the mists she surely wishes would vanish.

  1. OT: o to make a 9:00a.m. statement regarding terrorism operation kills two hostages and one American.
    Counter terrorism operations in January.

  2. I like how she uses the term, “Sacred Bond”

    What is the definition of ‘sacred bond’ to Hillary?

    Anyone want to answer that?

  3. Unfortunately it really doesn’t matter what she said so many years ago. The time where your word was your bond is long past and as long as you spout the proper words now your intergrity will never be looked at. When did we move from expecting our leaders to have character and intergrity to having the latest fad or shiny object?

  4. fundamental bedrock principle that exists between a man and a woman, going back into the mists of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization

    Founding foundational? What does this mean–bec it has been betw a man and a woman it always must be? And she defended marriage with her “brave” stand at the side of her faithless spouse? What chop suey!

    Keep going, Hillary–you can get on both sides of this–don’t stop–stay with it!
