TOUGH MAMA: HILLARY SAYS YOUNG ADULTS ARE SPOILED BRATS 

Hillary Clinton: "Young adults think work is a four-letter word."



This is one tough cookie. While President Bush is fighting terrorists, Hillary Clinton is making sure the U.S. Chamber of Commerce knows that she thinks young adults are spoiled and lazy.

"Kids, for whatever reason, think they're entitled to go right to the top with $50,000 or $75,000 jobs when they have not done anything to earn their way up," the Dems' 2008 White House front-runner said.


I wonder what Chelsea Clinton would think of it because she got a six-figure job straight out of school.

A young adult who Clinton knows well, daughter Chelsea, 26, started a six-figure consulting gig in the New York office of London-based McKinsey & Company after receiving her master's degree from Oxford in 2003.

The former first lady blamed cable TV, high-speed Internet, cellphones and iPods for creating a culture that "really argues against hard work. It's a culture that has a premium on instant gratification."

"You know, I grew up in a home with one TV set and we didn't get that right off the bat. It improved your negotiating skills because you had to argue about what channel you were going to watch, even though there were only three," Clinton said.

WHINY MEDIA AT TONY SNOW PRESS GAGGLE 

Partial transcript of Tony Snow's media gaggle, courtesy of National Review's Media Blog.

QUESTION: How are you going to make this administration more credible?

TONY SNOW: I'm not going to answer questions about credibility, other than to say that I'm eager to be here and I'm happy to be working with you.

QUESTION: Are you ever going to — always going to tell the truth?

TONY SNOW: Yes.

QUESTION: Why did you decide to move the gaggle back in here?

TONY SNOW: I thought it was a little more informal. I didn't realize it would be so highly attended. You know, if it turns out — like, if you guys decide that you'd rather have it back in the briefing room, I'll be happy to move it back there. [...]

QUESTION: I'd like — this was 9:00 a.m., then it was pushed back to 9:30 a.m., and then I walk in at 9:20 a.m., and it's already well underway.

QUESTION: Do not do that again.

QUESTION: This isn't good.

TONY SNOW: Well, this is — it's my fault. And it had to do with vagaries of the schedule today, and I apologize, period.


And these questions were just from David Gregory!!
