Back Hillary Clinton? Why?

  • Follow Letters

In the wake of the recent Benghazi hearings, all we heard from Democrats was that the hearings were a Republican witch hunt – that they were a pre-emptive strike on Hillary Clinton’s juggernaut to the White House in 2016.

My question is this: Why is Hillary the front-runner for anything?

Prior to her first trip to the White House, Hillary stayed mired in scams and scandals, such as Whitewater, the cattle futures scam, the Madison Guaranty savings and loan scandal, and on and on. A number of Hillary’s close friends and business associates went to jail for their involvement in these scams.

During the 1992 presidential campaign Hillary and Bill Clinton went on 60 Minutes to fend off the “bimbo eruptions.” Hillary’s sole purpose in being there was to tell the female voters that if Bill’s promiscuity and sexual assaults didn’t bother her, than it shouldn’t bother you ladies when you go to the polls. It must have worked.

One of Bill’s first acts as president was to put Hillary in charge of health-care reform, a.k.a. “Hillarycare.” Thank God the entire Democratic Party wasn’t totally radicalized as it is today, or we would have had Obamacare 20 years earlier. “Hillarycare” made her one of the most reviled women in America, on par with Leona Helmsley.

While in the White House, Hillary became a key figure in unauthorized access of FBI files. She raked in huge sums of money for selling White House access to the likes of Johnny Chung, John Huang, known drug dealer Jorge Cabrera and others.

Enter Monica Lewinsky, and Hillary disappears from everyone’s radar. Fast-forward to when Hillary carpetbags her way into a U.S. Senate seat from New York. Hugo Chavez could have won that seat with a “D” by his name. The sole purpose of the Senate seat was to make a presidential run.

Obama wins the White House in 2008 and names Hillary secretary of state. Her most memorable moments were her hideous cackling with a head of state over Moammar Gadhafi’s killing; drunken club-hopping in South America; the total misread of the “Arab Spring”; and the coup de gras – the denying of requested security, the abandonment of our ambassador and personnel while they were under attack, and the subsequent cover-up of what really happened in Benghazi, Libya.

Hillary Clinton’s bio reads more like a rap sheet than a resumé. Perhaps her campaign slogan for 2016 is going to be, “What difference does it make?”

For reasons entirely apart from your unattributed assertions,

I've found it hard to believe that Hillary is the best Democrats could do for 2016, because she won't be much younger then than John McCain was in 2008, and because the "Establishment" way of doing things seems to have put off more than a plurality of voters, even without considering how next year's midterms will go.

Tammy did divorce George

but Hillary stood by her man...
and used overwhelming force on the bimbos at the first sign of trouble
was she in the kitchen baking cookies when the ambassador called?
not that it matters...

She has survived all the republican witch-hunts and will continue to survive. She's an intelligent woman and I'd be happy to vote for her if she decides to run for president. Unlike the the bimbo mascots the republicans came up with she's the only one that is presidential.

Why Hillary

Because none the things you mentioned matter Bob. She would win.

Excellent run down of "The Smartest Woman in the World"

rap sheet. It just goes to show that character is not one of the traits most democrats look for in a leader or candidate. The MSM will try to make her tenure as the SOS as the best in the history of the Republic; yet, there can not me one foreign policy success pointed to as a result of he actions. The "Arab Spring" produced crab grass rather than flowers.

In my opinion

This LTE could just-as-well be asking two questions: Will it be Hillary or some Democrat as our next president ? Hillary's very good race in 2008 would lead one to believe that she is the absolute front-runner. As a Democrat, myself, I hope that the democratic candidate will be someone different !! All Democrats DO NOT agree with the whole Democratic Platform. Hillary is not MY choice.

sole most important

sole most important qualification that founding fathers talked about for prez---good sound moral character***does Obumler or Hilliary posses these qualifications...That may be summed up with " does it make make a difference" ...only if you want the most corrupt administration ever...as long as we have obama money, obama phones, record length for the unemployed, most ever on disability, highest yearly deficits, debt piled up to more than any other prez, the record use of food stamps, the endless use of EBT cards..the list is endless ...as long as the takers get their govt goodies .....sadly, it doesnt matter anymore.

Hillary is one of the the

Hillary is one of the most arrogant, elitist people on earth. I am reminded of the story that came out after the Clintons were out of the White House. Several of those that worked in the White House were told not to make eye to eye contact with Hillary by her request. She married country boy Billy from Arkansas to advance her political career. 2012 was supposed to be her time but Obama derailed her plans. 2016 is her last shot and no one had better get in her way.

Since it was just revealed

Since it was just revealed that Bill Clinton prostituted himself by campaigning for Obama in some kind of deal where Obama would endorse Hillary in 2016, and Bill has now be quoted as basically saying he hates Obama and that Obama is an amateur, I am not so sure that Hillary will be a shoe in. That and the Benghazi debacle where she hung an Ambassador and 3 other Americans out to be murdered while she went back to bed should be a clue to most folks that Hillary is NOT the person you want to be answering the red phone in the White House.

Hillary is and always has been a political animal but her stint at the State Department, her total failure to get anything accomplished there, and her inept and unconcerned handling of the 7 hour Benghazi terrorist attack should be all of the proof that is needed to send her to the trash can of has been political hacks.

That's no way to talk about the girl's dad. We can't pick our parents.
