If Hillary is the best presidential candidate that the Democrats can field, then the Democratic Party has proven itself thoroughly inept, corrupt, and ideologically bankrupt.
Weekly (if not daily) new scandals emerge (or are given renewed urgency), reminding us of Clinton scandals going back decades. The patterns of misconduct, denial, and cover-up continue apace into the 2016 election cycle.
The Clintons’ arrogance, sense of entitlement, and sense that they can get away with anything is astounding. Moreover, their lack of concern for the American People – or for America’s survival – is breathtaking for a First Couple who seek only the power to rule over, rather than represent, the People of this great nation.
In keeping with the idea that a picture speaks a thousand words, following are about 45,000 “words” (culled from the Internet) with a few actual words mixed in.
The Early Years
It is always good to go back to the beginning for context. Here are a few items from the past which most Millennials are unaware of.
Bill and Hillary – the real deal.
Highlights from one of Hillary’s legal triumphs.
Yes, Hillary was on the House Judicial Committee during Watergate. She was fired for unethical behavior.
The Clinton Administration
In 1993, New York Times Magazine profiled Hillary, calling her “Saint Hillary.”
Hillary defended her lying and adulterous husband by blaming a mythical Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.”
The Clinton Administration was beset by many other scandals which extended back into the glory days of Bill’s governorship in Arkansas.
The Obama Administration
Hillary’s greatest achievement was racking up frequent flyer miles (at the expense of the American people).
Russian Reset Debacle
Blunder followed blunder. Consider the infamous Russian reset was ridiculed around the world.
Terrorist Attack in Benghazi
Everything Hillary said about Benghazi was a lie. From the very beginning. Everything!
Proving herself inept at foreign policy, she did so as well in the world of economics.
Hillary’s efforts to reinvent herself as a Woman of the People failed because 1) she’s a One Percenter who cannot relate to those beneath her and 2) she has no grasp of how the free market actually works (few socialists do).
Private Server / Email Deletions
One of many scandals that will not go away, Hillary illegally maintained a private server for all of her government work and illegally deleted all her emails, whether work-related or not.
Speculations abound. Was Hillary’s private server set up for the express purpose of facilitating illegal activity being done by the Clinton Foundation? Did Hillary delete emails because there were smoking guns regarding Clinton Cash, Benghazi, and other potential political powderkegs and illegalities?
Hillary for President
Hillary announced her 2016 presidential bid, not with a bang but a whimper. Or, rather, a tweet. She also tweeted instructions to her constituency which suggests they are too stupid to understand how bumper stickers are used.
People roundly criticized and mocked her campaign logo.
Liberals (and conservatives) need to rethink their options for 2016.
