The Hypocrisy of Pro-War Hillary Clinton and Her Pro-War Supporters

Am I the only person in America who stands in awe of the great hypocrisy generated by Hillary Clinton?  Hillary Clinton is running for the highest office in the land, touting herself as a "liberal" who is "anti-war," despite the fact that Hillary's voting record is categorically pro-war. Hillary voted to give Bush authority to attack Iraq, yet when Hillary is confronted (rarely) by anti-war activists/pundits asking Hillary:

"Why did you vote for the war?"

"Are you ever going to apologize for voting for the war?" and,

"Do you consider voting to give Bush authority to attack Iraq a 'mistake?'"
Hillary Clinton claims she didn't know Bush was going to use force against Iraq when she voted YES on Lieberman's war bill entitled, "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002." Hillary voted AGAINST the alternate amendment requiring Bush to send U.N. weapons inspectors into Iraq before using force.

Why in the hell would anyone want to vote for Clinton considering she voted to give Bush authority to attack Iraq? Why? I find it more than distressing that anyone could give her a free pass for voting YES on giving Bush the faux authority to unilaterally execute an unprovoked illegal attack on Iraq. Apparently, Hillary supporters don't give a damn about the 4,000+ needless deaths from this war. I'm talking about the 4,000+ U.S. servicemen and women who gave their lives in this illegal, unconstitutional, needless and wrongful war on Iraq.

Bush couldn't have done it without Hillary's vote. Hillary is just as responsible as Bush and Cheney for the deaths of over a million Iraqis and four thousand Americans. In fact, Hillary has voted to reauthorize this illegal needless war over 15 times!! Doesn't that count for anything? Shouldn't that massive murder register in the minds of Hillary supporters?

What are they thinking?

Hillary never even apologized for voting those needless deaths into their premature graves. Instead of resigning from politics in shame for her reprehensible and inexcusable conduct, Hillary is laughing, talking, skinning and grinning, begging for money and your support! Are you kidding me? Hillary should be held accountable for violating her oath to uphold our U.S. Constitution and laws. Deport her now!

I've even heard Hillary supporters making excuses for Hillary, including Hillary's favorite: "If I knew then what I know now..." Well, bull! Hillary did know then what she knows now - which is she KNEW she did NOT possess the Constitutional, lawful authority to vote to give Bush the power to execute the patently illegal Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive strikes against sovereign nation Iraq, but she did it anyway!

Where's the accountability?

The best way to hold Hillary accountable for sending Americans and Iraqis to their premature, needless deaths, is by not voting for her! Stop supporting Hillary Clinton.
