NEW YORK - After telling an audience that young people today "think work is a four-letter word," Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton said she apologized to her daughter.
"I said, 'I'm sorry, I didn't mean to convey the impression that you don't work hard,'" Clinton said Sunday in a commencement address at Long Island University. "I just want to set the bar high, because we are in a competition for the future."
What? You say one right thing, out of all the stuff you say that is other-than right, and you have to rush off and retract it? Kids don't start out with a work ethic, Hillary. A huge number of them, those that don't go into the government, are slapped in the face when the first boss starts requiring effort from them. That's ok; it doesn't mean they won't learn - most of them do in this country. For those who can't there is the civil service and emigration to France.
