Hillary Clinton’s Confusing Youth Paradox

Hillary Clinton finally tells the truth about something, and ends up apologizing? It’s no wonder though.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has apologized to her daughter for recent comments about young people — and work.Clinton said at a gathering in Washington last week that young people “think work is a four letter word” and they have a sense of entitlement after growing up in a “culture that has a premium on instant gratification.”

Clinton told a commencement audience yesterday that her daughter, Chelsea, phoned to complain after learning about the comments, telling her mom “I do work hard and my friends work hard.”

Gee, why would kids feel a sense of entitlement, what with Hillary, Bill, and the rest of liberal America pounding into their heads that health care should be free, education should be free, or any other of a laundry list of life’s necessities.

It’s no wonder kids are probably now more confused than Anna Nicole Smith trying to do the Sunday New York Times crossword puzzle while riding on a merry-go-round.

And if kids are motivated and don’t listen to Hillary and Company constantly harping about how the government should change all our diapers, the final bullet comes when Hillary Clinton essentially tells people that, even if you do try, your money should be taken for the “common good”, as she said in 2004.

Speaking to a crowd at a fund-raiser in San Francisco, concerning tax cuts, “We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”

For perhaps the first time in 20-plus years, Hillary Clinton aroused a man on that day … unfortunately, that man was Karl Marx. The squeak of the lid opening, as everybody’s favorite dead communist said, “Look, comrades, no hands,” is, quite frankly, creepy.

The confusion continues…

But now, these same kids, who were told they are lazy by the same woman whose political goals for America suggest there is no reason for them to get off the couch, are told that, yes, they do have the drive to succeed.

Hillary may have inadvertently created some young Republicans last week, if any kids were astute enough to catch on to this complete drivel.

Oh, by the way, since Hillary has apologized and said, in essence, that work is not a four-letter word, look for more than one kid to start spelling it “worrk” or “workk”.
