You know, when it comes right down to it, there are only two things about Hillary Clinton that bother me. The first is she constantly lies, which means you can’t trust her. We, as Americans, want to be able to feel like we actually know our presidents. And to get to know a president, you’ve got to have some sort of relationship with them. And in order to do that, you have to have a foundation for that relationship. You cannot build a foundation for any relationship that will last when it’s based on lies. I don’t care if it’s a marriage, a friendship, a family, none of it works if it’s based on lies.
The only other real problem that I have with Hillary Clinton (other than her policies, which are really not well thought out), is the fact that she feels that she is actually owed this position. Let’s examine this, shall we?
She started out as a lawyer. She wasn’t a very good one, either. She made it as a partner at Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, primarily because of who her husband was (think Good Wife). She left that to become first lady, and then immediately got into hot water when she tried to foist this socialistic healthcare idea onto a country that was totally happy with the healthcare system they had. She failed miserably. After a rather unimpressive stint as first lady (what did she accomplish?), she decides she wants to run for the US Senate. So, she moves to one of the more liberal states in the union, and one that has a retiring senator so she’s not going to get much of a fight. She gets elected because her main opposition bows out over a “scandal” that he wasn’t faithful to his wife. As a US Senator, she proposed 337 bills. Of the 337, only 46 were assigned to committee. Only two of the 46 actually became law. And what were those bills? Well, one was to establish the Kate Mullany National Historic Site in the State of New York…and the other was to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service in New York City as the Major George Quamo Post Office Building. I think we can safely say her time in the senate was a waste.
Let’s move on…in 2008 she runs for president and loses the nomination (which was supposed to be a coronation) to Barack Obama. He makes her Secretary of State (and pays her outstanding campaign bills…said to be in the millions). What did she do there? I’ll let her tell you in her own words:
“My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I’m glad you asked. My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know. The remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that. Very proud. I would say that’s a major accomplishment.”
What were some other accomplishments? The overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi was her baby, and Bobo Obama recently said in an interview the failure to fully plan for life after Gaddafi was his administration’s biggest mistake. That was a Hillary moment. Another Hillary moment? She pushed very hard for the “line in the sand” comment about chemical weapons in Syria. That was also hers. How’d that work out? Oops. Almost forgot the Russian Re-Set…you know where the State Department in its wisdom instead of saying “re-set” in Russian, it said “Overcharge”. Am I leaving anything else out?
How could I ever forget Benghazi? Yes, that was Hillary’s baby too. Four dead in an evening that has defined her professional life. And she has spent the last five years trying to find someone to blame it on.
All of this, and Bernie Sanders can only come up with exorbitant speaking fees to Wall Street firms and a vote for the Iraq war as to why she’s not qualified to be president? My, oh my…someone needs to open their eyes!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
