Well, I always knew that Hillary Clinton was some kind of retard but her latest comments about Haiti make me think that she smokes crack as well.
She says that Hait must take the lead in the reconstruction of their country. "RE"-construction? They have trouble doing construction in the first place. Here is what she said:
"The government of Haiti must and will be in the lead," U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said. "We cannot any longer in the 21st century be making decisions for people and their futures without listening, and without giving them the opportunity to be as involved and make as many decisions as possible."
This is like the firefighters asking the homeowner who is trapped in the blazing building for advice on how to put the fire out and rescue the dying family members. Unbelievable.
No way can the government of Haiti deal with this catastrophe. They don't have the money, the equipment, the skilled people, or the know how. The government of Haiti is extremely corrupt. Anything that is not nailed down will be stolen. They are also extremely incompetent. They also have no resources.
What is wrong with these pepole (in the United States government?).
Haiti needs massive assistance. They need EVERYTHING. Tents, blankets, clothes, clean water, food, medicine, fuel, construction materials, skilled workers, doctors, nurses, the list goes on and on. They need this assistance now, today, with no strings attached.
They dont' need any more speeches or press conferences or meetings. They need practical help and lots of it.
Hillary Clinton is either an idiot or is so far out of touch with reality as to need medication or perhaps to be institutionalized. This is one of the most preposterous statements I have ever read.
