Smart Power: Mrs. Clinton Still Whining About Bush Administration While Handing Over Money to Pakis

Good grief, can anyone let me know what the statute of limitations is on blaming Bush? Here you have a story about Queen Smart Power over in Pakistan handing over $500 million of our tax money and she's still bitching about about the Bush administration.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton sought Monday to convince skeptical Pakistanis that American interest in their country extends beyond the fight against Islamist militants by announcing a raft of new aid projects worth $500 million.

The projects, which include hospitals and new dams for badly needed electricity, are part of a $7.5 billion aid effort to win over Pakistanis suspicious about Washington's goals here and in neighboring Afghanistan, where U.S. troops are being killed in ever greater numbers in an insurgency with roots in Pakistan.

Mistrust over U.S. intentions in Pakistan is in part due to Washington's decision to turn away from the nuclear-armed country after enlisting its support to defeat the Soviets in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

"Of course there is a legacy of suspicion that we inherited. It is not going to be eliminated overnight," said Clinton following talks in Islamabad.
So we're killing more jihadis there than before but there's still a "legacy of suspicion"? What, Bush didn't give them enough freebies or something?
"We're trying to escape the bonds of gravity, leave behind an era of mistrust and launch a new period of cooperation," she said during a town hall meeting attended by several hundred Pakistanis.
Escape the bonds of gravity?

What the hell is she talking about?

Meanwhile, as if we're not strapped enough for cash, her boss is going to the well to hand out money to people he put on the unemployment line.
