Shrillary: Broken promise of NY jobs is GOP's fault

More jobs have been created in the last 3 years than in quite some time. However, New York state (represented by two Democrat U.S. Senators in DC) has actually lost jobs. Her Highness ran in 2000 promising 200,000 new jobs. Instead, NY has lost about 112,000 jobs.

The reason? Yep, you guessed it: it's George Bush's fault. Well, Republicans in general. From Newsmax:
2008 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is telling upstate New Yorkers that the reason she hasn't delivered on her 2000 campaign promise to create 200,000 new jobs for the region is because Republicans control the federal government.

Asked about her jobs failure, Mrs. Clinton told the Syracuse Post-Standard: "I didn't have the benefit of a Democratic Congress. But I think given the fact that that wasn't the environment that I'd hoped for, we've seen some progress."

In fact, New York State has actually lost 112,000 jobs since sending Mrs. Clinton to Washington, according to the Public Policy Institute in Albany.
In an interview with the Utica Observer Dispatch, the former first lady also sought to deflect blame away from her upstate jobs performance, saying: "The fiscal and economic policies that are now pursued are not good for the whole country, but are particularly hard on upstate."
What a Catch-22 for Her Highness, huh? She can't give Bush any credit for all of the new jobs added in the humming economy, but she can blame him for the jobs LOST in said humming economy? Nice try, Shrillary. You can't have it both ways...who do you think you are, John F'ing Kerry?
