Hilary admits it
Our charming, diplomatic Secretary of State was in Pakistan the other day, trying to drum up support for our side, and reassure them that we’re [from the government] and we’re here to help.
As usual with the World’s Smartest Woman, she got a little testy when the Pakistani miltary told her they had no idea where Osama bin Laden was hiding. During a meeting at Lahore University, one student had the temerity to ask
“What guarantee can the American give Pakistanis that you guys would not betray us like you did in the past?”
(He’s probably not going get to be the next ambassador to the U.S.)
But then, at a later meeting, there was a slip of the tongue:
We (the United States) tax everything that moves and doesn’t move, and that’s not what we see in Pakistan.
That’s the Democrats’ ideal:
If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
— Ronald Reagan, 1986
