And what of Hillary's run?

  • Follow Letters

After reading your Aug. 2 editorial “American coronation” and then the Aug. 2 Lowell Greenbaum letter “Barrow is devoted servant,” I wonder when Mr. Greenbaum will provide some local Democratic Party backing and insight into the scandals and planned media cover-ups that will lead to Hillary Clinton’s run for president.

But perhaps, as Ms. Clinton says, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Benghazi was just one of the scandals under Hillary, but Benghazi will be swept under the rug by the lap dog press to!

Here we go again...

The lives lost in Benghazi were all important, but don't keep reminding me that I gave the president (GW Bush) the benefit of doubt when 3000+ lives were lost under his watch on September 11th.

Is the standard that when embassies are attacked or terrorists attack under republicans then it is the terrorists' fault, but if the attack happens under a democrat it is the democrat's fault?

There were more US embassy attacks and deaths under Reagan and HW Bush than any other time.

The 9/11attack was

The 9/11attack was investigated-all sorts of conspiracy theories emerged too. it isn't about benefit of doubt but about govt doing their jobs. The Dems were unrelenting for 8 years after Bush. It wouldn't be fair for Rep not to do the same and it's all about fairness- course the Rep haven't done anything because they are incompetent.

Hillary has never really accomplished anything of significance.

She is not competent enough to be president. She is and always has been a left wing radical even from her college days studying Alinski just as obama did. There must be something in the IL water system that germinates radical politicians.

Of course, incompetence has never kept the democrats and their low information and no information lemmings from voting for a candidate. Just look at the current occupant of the White House---the most unqualified to ever reside there and will do the most harm to the nation ever.

The problem with Hillary's "inevitability" is that it

betrays a complete lack of imagination in the national Democratic establishment. There will be no bold new ideas coming from these people before the next decade. Meanwhile, "conservatives" will remain exactly that, in this context, also bereft of new ideas, focusing their energies instead on subjugating the libertarian insurgency within their ranks.

People want to talk about Obamacare.

Remember Hillary's health care plan, that she would only show certain parts of it to people, and wouldn't let them look at the whole thing?

Why would Bush get blamed for

Why would Bush get blamed for something that happened before he was settled into the office. The intelligence info they received was what the Clinton admin passed along. Good grief....that's like saying my child got a brand new teacher and now he is below grade level and it's all her fault.

Irrelevancy

Let's face reality. The tea partiers want to believe that Benghazi was politically important in the presidential future of Hillary Clinton. It is not. This, and all the other little hot button topics that the tea partiers trumpet will have zero impact on the vast majority of voters. Because most voters are focused on issues of national importance -- social issues and economic issues. In Ms Clinton, they see someone who has sat down with heads of state around the world, who was in the White House for 8 years, and who represents a huge number of voters who have been under attack by Republicans. In the 2012 election, women made up 52% of the voters. They voted overwhelmingly for Obama and will vote overwhelmingly for Clinton, if she runs. They don't care about Benghazi. They care about birth control, abortion rights, equal employment and wages, environmental issues, education, health care, child care, minority rights, etc. Even the older white Americans who have voted Republican consistently are slipping away because of the Republican efforts to destroy Medicare and Social Security.

The question is not, who will dredge up something scandalous about Hillary Clinton. The question is, who will vote for a Republican? The 1% and the old white men? Romney lost by a sizable margin. Unless Republicans find a way to connect with the vast majority of Americans on social and economic issues, the margin will be even larger in 2016.

Benghazi is irrelevant to most voters. And Republicans become more irrelevant by the day.

picking on anyone, but I think "truth matters" should have been a p.r. man/woman for the nazi party back in the 30's and 40's. A better spin doctor, other than Dr. Greenbaum, I have not seen.

Dank, you might correct. This is the results of the gov't schools dummying down the kids for more than 30 yrs. When the Marxists/communists collapse our country the poor dummies won't have a clue why it happen.

Here is one if the best
Unpublished

Here is one if the best descriptions of Obama that I have seen.
The Architect of Destruction
Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.

It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America .

Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn't delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn't singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.

Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn't really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us.

He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America, rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the "Great Uniter"). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions. And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.

Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.
Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

• Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.

• Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people - on a daily basis!

Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America , and the epitome of a Demagogue.

Condy Rice would mop up the floor against Hilary. It would be comical. I don't understand the interest in Clinton-given she did so poorly last time. The DEMS can't find a better candidate? Mc Cain could probably run again And beat Hilary-and he's a fossilized dinosaur.

If you want a little more insight about Hillary read 'Unlimited Access' by Gary Aldrich.
Aldrich was an FBI Agent responsible for background checks on White House staff during the Clinton administration.
He has a very low opinion of Hillary. But he did give a her one thing. He said you could hear Hillary cussing ole Bill all over the WH using words any sailor would be proud of.

Planned under Clinton, executed under Bush. Never would have happened if Clinton had taken Bin Ladin when he was offered to him, tied up with a pretty bow on top.

Sometimes truth (doesn't really) matter. It's the spin that counts.
