I'll Give You a Topic...

Hillary Clinton.

Why do so many conservatives hate her so passionately?

I'm not a conservative (more of a middle-road traditionalist) but I'm definitely a Hillary hater. It's mostly because she's a lying, conniving, evil, heartless, witch. She's also about as unholy left as you can get but she has the evil cunning to make herself appealing to moderates.

I hate her for holding unapologetically socialist views, and speaking them with a condescending air of righteous indignation every chance she gets.

It started with the incident of the White House Travel Office.

It flared to full magnitude when she tried to assume the position of "Co-President".

It firmed to steel when she cut the chow line in Bagram.

I was just thinking about Slick Willie's Lady MacBeth a little while ago.

Unfortunately, this conservative and College Republican has an essay due in a few hours, but for now, all I will say is... ugh...!!

It seems to a non-American (me) that it stems from two things. First, she was somewhat more political than previous First Ladies. I don't think any of the above posters are correct in labelling her a far-left leaning socialist. Secondly, they were deathly afraid that if she became a popular figure, with her lawerly background, she might make a viable Democractic Presidential Candidate one day. Having seen her campaign, I'm not sure she's that good of a pol. I have to assume the attacks are merely a form of propaganda, assessing great sins to her in hopes that some would remain stuck to her and reduce her popularity.

I would say I hate her...but I do dislike her strongly. First of all, because you bring her up and it drives liberals crazy. Second of all, she's a rabid left wing pinko, with long standing ties to anti-Israel groups (which, in classic lib fashion, she tries to pretend never happened now that's she Senator from NY with it's large Jewish pop). Third, she stood by her man, proving that a real feminist believes more strongly in politics then principle. Oh yeah, as mentioned before, the White House travel office story didn't win her brownie points either. Though she did get kudos for the VRWC thing. I feel like I belong now. Needless to say, she's never done anything worthwhile in her life and still expects everyone to treat her like royalty. (No looking Mrs. Clinton in the face you annoying little peons!)
