Opuscula

Hillary to continue
Obama's legacy
Said "awful" by Bill


 

WITH THE CLINTONS, Bill and Hillary, who can you believe?

Hillary, stumping for votes, Warns Against 'Letting Obama's Legacy Fall Into Trump's Hands'

Meanwhile hubby Bill, who may not "have had sex" with Monica, may find he's not having sex with Hillary either after, according to one headline, Bill Clinton calls Obama legacy ‘awful,’ potentially dooming wife’s campaign

If she can't get her husband in line, imagine how she'll manage Congress and world powers, including Iran, Obama's protectorate. Anyone think the ayatollah will deal with a female head of the Big Satan?

ACCORDING TO ABC "NEWS," Hillary Clinton praised President Obama and warned that a Donald Trump presidency would damage his legacy Sunday during remarks at a large NAACP dinner in Detroit.

"We cannot let Barack Obama's legacy fall into Donald Trump's hands," the Democratic presidential candidate told the audience of roughly 6,000 people at the NAACP's Annual Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner, which is known as the "largest plated dinner in the country.

"We can't let all the hard work and progress we've achieved over the last seven and a half years be torn away. We have to move forward together. We have to bring our country together," she said. "We have to keep working toward the more perfect union."

In other words, another 4, possibly 8, years of Obama mismanagement and the decline of the United States to that of a laughing stock as a world leader. Only the name would be changed (Obama to Hillary).

Meanwhile, FLIP-N-FLOP ON USA Today: At a campaign stop for Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton referred to the last eight years of administration as an "awful legacy" but never mentioned President Obama's name. Now, Clinton's aid denies the statement was about Obama.

The Associated Press reported Bill Clinton said voters should support the former secretary of state for president "if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that."

Bear in mind the candidate's

    Health-Care Gate: In 1997, federal judge Royce Lamberth levied $286,000 in sanctions against Bill Clinton’s administration for “running amok” in a “cover-up” of Hillary Clinton’s health-care task force. *

    Filegate: The confidential FBI files of up to 900 former Reagan and Bush appointees were sent over to White House security chief Craig Livingstone. Deputy White House counsel William Kennedy, a close friend of Hillary Clinton’s from their days at the Rose Law Firm, would frequently call up the FBI and have someone’s files sent over on his say-so. Then–FBI director Louis Freeh called it “an egregious violation of privacy.” *

    Cattle-Futures Gate: Hillary Clinton came under scrutiny when, during her tenure as first lady of Arkansas, she managed to turn a $1,000 investment in cattle futures into a profit of nearly $100,000 in only nine months. She claimed she had learned how to trade by reading the Wall Street Journal. Her broker had earlier been suspended from trading for a year after he was charged with manipulating the egg-futures market.*

    Travelgate: In May 1993, Hillary Clinton wrote an infamous note demanding action to “get our people” into the White House Travel Office. Billy Dale, its director, and six of his employees were quickly fired on the basis of rumors that they had engaged in criminal conduct; the rumors were cooked up in part by a 25-year-old cousin of Bill Clinton’s who wound up running the travel office.

    Dale was indicted on charges of embezzling $88,000 from the office. Jurors took only two hours to acquit him of all charges. Hillary Clinton refused an interview request from the General Accounting Office about her role in the affair. The late New York Times columnist Bill Safire concluded after Travelgate that Hillary Clinton was “a congenital liar.*

    Billing-Records Gate: The records of Hillary Clinton’s clients at the Rose Law Firm in Arkansas were subpoenaed for years by investigators looking into Whitewater. They were finally discovered on a coffee table in the private quarters of the White House. No one ever explained how they got there.*

As far as defending women, Hillary has a long record of denigrating any woman who might have fallen under Bill's "influence," including:

    When Gennifer Flowers surfaced, saying that she had had a long affair with Mr. Clinton, Mrs. Clinton undertook an “aggressive, explicit direction of the campaign to discredit” the accuser. **

    Mrs. Clinton referred to Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern who had an affair with the 42nd president, as a “narcissistic loony toon,” according to one of her closest confidantes, Diane D. Blair, whose diaries were released to the University of Arkansas after her death in 2000.

    Ms. Lewinsky later called the comment an example of Mrs. Clinton’s impulse to “blame the woman.”**

    Alexis Isabel Moncada, founder of Feminist Culture, said "“I heard he sexually harassed people and she worked to cover it up,"**

** Excerpted from The New York Times

I'm very sure that I would NOT want to
(a) continue Mr. Obama's legacy, and
(b) to have a president with Mrs. Clinton's background.

I'm not sure Mr. Trump is a better choice, but of the two (currently leading) candidates, I think Mr. Trump has "cleaner skirts" - less to deny.

I think Mr. Trump needs to find worthwhile advisers; Mrs. Clinton apparently failed in this as Secretary of State, else why the Benghazi disaster"?


I'm certain the people who grew up believing that if a Republican and a jackass were on the ballot, vote for the jackass, That these people will disbelieve anything negative about the Clintons just as they will applaud anything negative about her GOP opponent. These are, by and large, the same people who shout down and often physically abuse anyone who fails to kowtow to their way of "thinking."
