Hillary: Don't "Card" Us

From AP's report on today's Hillary speech to the United Auto Workers, where she was greeted with (shudder) "Hillary for President" cheers:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday accused Republicans of "playing the fear card" of terrorism to win elections and said Democrats cannot keep quiet if they want to win in November.
It's just a card? Like the race card Hillary uses so frequently?

Sorry, Hil, most Americans understand that the House isn't run like a Plantation, just as they know fear of terrorism isn't merely a political card the GOP "plays" to win elections. We remember the towers falling. We remember Bali and Madrid and London.

We remember your husband firing one lousy cruise missile when al Qaeda blew up our embassies in Africa. Here's a picture of one of them, in case you've forgotten.

So when you say, as you did today, "I take a back seat to nobody when it comes to fighting terrorism and standing up for national homeland security," we'll just say you're playing your strong card.
