Hillary launches 2012 campaign

Hillary Cinton yesterday fired her first salvo in her as-yet-unannounced bid to challenge Barack Obama for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2012.

Obama has been rightly and stridently condemned for his unending series of apology tours, in which he begs the world's forgiveness for the very existence of the United States.

Hillary can read, and knows just how angry voters are with the Boy President.

So yesterday, she struck out at critics of the U.S., immediately setting herself apart from her boss, and revealing the first glimpse of her strategy.

Said the would-be president, with regard to our intervention in Haiti, "I deeply resent those who attack our country, the generosity of our people and the leadership of our president in trying to respond to historically disastrous conditions after the earthquake."

In other words, Hillary is not about to apologize for the U.S.; in fact she is just as proud as she can be of her country, and wants the whole world — and likely 2012 voters — to know it.

While the president has been everywhere agreeing with the world that America is the great Satan, Hilllary says the problem is with the world and not the good old U.S. of A. The problem, says she, is not that the U.S. is evil, but that "some of the international press either misunderstood or deliberately misconstrued" our decision to send troops as well as aid to Haiti.

Signs of desperation within the Obama camp continue to emerge, the latest being his clumsy attempt to appeal to the middle class in his State of the Union speech and his bogus attempt to look like a deficit hawk. The crack in his facade is widening into a crevasse, wide enough that Obama himself may fall in it. And Hillary knows it.

Strap it on, folks. It's going to be a fun ride.
