Concord – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement on Hillary Clinton campaigning for Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire:

“Jeanne Shaheen told us that President Obama couldn’t come here to campaign for her because he was too busy, so she brought in the next best thing – a former member of the Obama cabinet. Hillary Clinton and Jeanne Shaheen share one thing in common – they have both supported Obama’s failed leadership, which has left America weaker at home and around the world.  To change direction, we need to change senators. Scott Brown is an independent leader who will be a check and balance on Obama, not a blank check like Jeanne Shaheen.”  


Clinton Has Praised President Obama’s Handling Of The Economy

VIDEO: At The Harkin Steak Fry In September 2014, Clinton Said President Obama Has Put Our Country “On The Road To Recovery.” CLINTON: “One of the reasons this election is so important is because in Washington, there is too little cooperation and too much conflict and when it comes to moving America forward, we know what it takes. We’ve seen it. We’ve seen it in Tom Harkin. We’ve seen it in Bill Clinton and we’ve seen it in Barack Obama. Under President Obama’s leadership, our country is on the road to recovery.” (Hillary Clinton, Remarks at Harkin Steak Fry, Indianola, IA, 7/14/14)

VIDEO: In May 2014, Clinton Praised The “Painstaking Work And Strong Leadership From President Obama To Get Our Economy Growing Again.” CLINTON: “I remember being on the Budget Committee in the Senate my very first year. With the new Administration making different choices, and the next eight years taught us different lessons about how, by policy choices, we can turn surpluses into debt. We can return to rising deficits. That’s what happens when your only policy prescription is to cut taxes for the wealthy and then to deal with the aftermath of a terrible terrorist attack and two wars without paying for them. Regulators neglected their oversight of the financial sector and allowed the evolution of an entire shadow banking system that operated without accountability. Government failed to invest adequately in infrastructure, education, basic research and then the housing crash, the financial crisis hit like a flash flood. Millions of jobs washed away, along with college savings, mortgages, nest eggs for retirement. Confidence, that intangible confidence in the future. Its taken years of painstaking work and strong leadership from President Obama to get our economy growing again. But it is growing and there are reasons to be optimistic about our future.” (Hillary Clinton, Remarks at the New America Foundation, Washington, DC, 5/16/14)

In November 2010, Clinton Said That She Believes “President Obama’s Leadership At Home And Abroad … Will Get Enormous Credit” For Preventing A Global Depression “When History Looks At What He Did.” CLINTON: “The balancing act that had to be done in the global economy in the immediate days after President Obama came into office, I personally believe that President Obama’s leadership at home and abroad working with countries like China, like India, like others, prevented a global depression. Now, its hard sometimes to get credit for what did not happen, but I believe that President Obama, when history looks at what he did, will get enormous credit.” (Hillary Clinton, Remarks at Townterview, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 11/2/10)

Clinton Has Repeatedly And Effusively Praised President Obama On Foreign Policy

VIDEO: As She Left The State Department In January 2013, Clinton Said That “President Obama’s Leadership” Had Made America “Stronger At Home And More Respected In The World.” CLINTON: “Today, the world remains a dangerous and complicated place, and of course, we still face many difficult challenges. But a lot has changed in the last four years. Under President Obama’s leadership, we’ve ended the war in Iraq, begun a transition in Afghanistan, and brought Usama bin Ladin to justice. We have also revitalized American diplomacy and strengthened our alliances. And while our economic recovery is not yet complete, we are heading in the right direction. In short, America today is stronger at home and more respected in the world. And our global leadership is on firmer footing than many predicted.” (Secretary Hillary Clinton, Remarks On American Leadership At The Council On Foreign Relations, Remarks, Washington, DC, 1/31/13)

VIDEO: In October 2011, Clinton Said Obama “Passed With Flying Colors Every Leadership Challenge” On Foreign Policy “And Performed Extraordinarily Well.” QUESTION: “Final question, Secretary Clinton: When you ran for president you posed a fundamental question to against your opponent at the time, now President Obama, which is who’s going to answer that 3:00 a.m. phone call when there’s an international crisis. And as you hear these Republican presidential debates and all the talk about foreign policy, do you think that there’s a threshold that they’re going to have to pass to show a certain amount of competence? And do you think that foreign policy, from what you’ve heard will be a disadvantage for this group of Republican candidates for president?” CLINTON: “Well, let me begin by saying that President Obama has passed with flying colors every leadership challenge. I mean, look at what he has done, I mean, just to name a few things. I mean, we were looking for bin Ladin for 10 years. It was under President Obama’s leadership that he was finally eliminated. Libya, with the kind of smart leadership that the President showed, demonstrating that American leadership was essential, but it was important to try to bring others also into a coalition of efforts, and the objective was achieved, keeping the promise to withdraw from Iraq but not leave Iraq by having a robust security and training mission accompanied by a very large diplomatic presence. I could go on and on. I think this President has demonstrated that, in a still very dangerous world, it’s important to have someone at the helm of our country who understands how to manage what is an incredibly complex world now. Yes, we have a lot of threats, but we also have opportunities, and I think President Obama has grasped that and has performed extraordinarily well.” (NBC’s “Meet The Press,” 10/23/11)

VIDEO: Clinton Praised President Obama’s “Steady Hand” When Making Foreign Policy Decisions.  CLINTON: “But, you know, I remember, you know, some of the speeches of Eisenhower as a young girl, you know? You’ve got to be careful. You have to be thoughtful. You can’t rush in, especially now, where it’s more complex than it’s been in decades. So yes, are there what we call wicked problems like Syria, which is the one you named? Absolutely. And we are on the side of American values. We’re on the side of freedom. We’re on the side of the aspirations of all people, to have a better life, have the opportunities that we are fortunate to have here. But it’s not always easy to perceive exactly what must be done in order to get to that outcome. So you know, I certainly am grateful for the president’s steady hand and hard questions and thoughtful analysis as to what we should and shouldn’t do.” (CBS’s “60 Minutes,” 1/28/13)

VIDEO: During Her 2008 Presidential Campaign, Clinton Said Obama “Would Be A Good Friend To Israel.” SENATOR CLINTON: “I know — I know Senator Obama understands what is at stake here. It has been an honor to contest these primaries with him. It is an honor to call him my friend. And let me be very clear: I know that Senator Obama will be a good friend to Israel. (Cheers, applause.) I know that Senator Obama shares my view that the next president must be ready to say to the world, America’s position is unchanging, our resolve unyielding, our stance non-negotiable. The United States stands with Israel, now and forever. (Applause)” (Senator Hillary Clinton, Remarks at the 2008 AIPAC Policy Conference, Washington, DC, 6/4/08)
