Back Hillary Clinton? Why?

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?”
