She’s running on the fact she has the experience and a proven track record. So, this should be easy, name a significant political accomplishment by Hillary, either as a
Senator or Secretary of State? Endorsing Obama for president is not an acceptable answer; but it does call into question her judgement. She once said, “He’s an excellent choice for President!” Green Party Writer David Macaray wrote, “Clinton lacks more than anything is a sense of vision—a Big Picture plan for the future, a rock-solid, overarching ideology that informs every element of her politics. But not only is that rock-solid ideology conspicuously absent, it has been withered and made irrelevant by a near-predatory ambition, one that can be expressed in three words: “It’s my turn.” He later goes on to call her money grubbing and of bad character, a dangerous combination.
Doesn’t character matter to you? Hillary Clinton isn’t honest and by now you should know she will do or say whatever she feels will advance her agenda or give her some personal advantage. She lied about the Irish peace process, her vote in favor of the Iraq war, her reason for illegally using a personal email server, that her family was dead broke when they left the White House, about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia, where Chelsea was on 9/11, who she was named after (Sir Edmund Hillary) and the list goes on. Her husband played fast and loose with the truth, we don’t need another con-artist Clinton back in the White House. She’s lied to make a point, lied to refute an accusation, lied to hide a lapse of memory, lied to attack an opponent (which she did when she ridiculed Bernie Sanders’ health care plan). Enough! We don’t need a liar-in-Chief, we tried that with Bill and it was embarrassing.
Has big money bought Hillary? It is a provable fact that Hillary Clinton has accepted millions of dollars from foreign governments. While serving as Secretary of State, The Clinton Foundation accepted millions from countries that fund Hamas, harbor terrorists, suppress women’s rights, and regularly execute gays and lesbians. In one case while Hillary ran the State Dept. the huge cell phone company, Eriksson of Sweden, was looking for a way to get around the US imposed trade sanctions with Iran. They paid Bill over $700,000 in speaking fees and suddenly the State Dept., found an exception for Eriksson to do business in Iran. Perhaps this was barely legal? I’m not sure, but ethically it was way out of bounds.
Progressives have a lot of issues with Hillary too, “Hillary Clinton is not a champion of the middle class and she’s not just like you and me. Hillary Clinton has always surrounded herself with power and money. “She’s had a personal chef, flies in a environment-polluting personal jet, has sent her daughter exclusively to private schools, and makes about $200K for every speaking engagement. That’s so you, right? And your middle-class neighbors – they’ve got a private jet out back, yeah?” Counterpunch, the fearless voice of the American left since 1993.
