Bush-Cheney Lite: A Worse Charge than Karl Marx?

This last week I received the following email from the Hillary Clinton campaign (I am on their email list from her visit to Reno):

Dear Timothy,

Last week, one of the leading Republican candidates equated Hillary with Karl Marx. Yesterday, one of the leading Democratic candidates called her "Bush-Cheney lite."
Can you imagine?? Hillary like George Bush??!! Or Dick Cheney!! You and I both know that Hillary has stood up time and time again to the failed Bush/Cheney policies. Well, I guess this is what Hillary gets for being the strongest, most qualified, the most substantive, the most experienced, the most ready to be president. That's what Hillary has gotten all her career for being willing to fight for change.

Evidently, it was important to send out an email defending herself against Bush allegations but it wasn't important to distinguish herself from Karl Marx. Maybe she can't given her previous rhetoric....

"Fairness doesn't just happen. It requires the right government policies."

"I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society."
“For America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that (tax cuts) short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”

"I want to take those profits (oil) and put them into an alternative energy fund that will begin to fund alternative smart energy alternatives that will actually begin to move us toward the direction of independence."

Stumbled across this...

To a degree, its a pot calling a kettle black... but it remains very intriguing
