If You Like Obama, You Will Love Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton Reveals Zero In Non-Candid, Tell-Nothing Interview...The Onion

In the last several years, I've written quite a few pieces about Hillary Clinton. Most of those posts can be summarized with the following that are also a direct reflection of Pres. Obama's policies:

  • She's the perfect progressive politician: Good at nothing; bad at everything.
  • reported on her trifling record of accomplishments as Senator. They also reported she missed 10% of her votes. The average is about 2% among senators.
  • As Senator and as Secretary of State, she had no major foreign policy successes in addition to no diplomatic accomplishments. Her claim to infamous fame can be defined by one word: Benghazi. This terrorist incident took place on her watch. Subsequent investigations to the incident reported on major systemic failures at State. 
  • The progressives at The Washington Post were forced to ask themselves: "Where is the record of accomplishment, let alone greatness."
  • Heritage Foundation (a conservative group) wrote: "America's position as a superpower is being weakened by Pres. Obama and Secretary Clinton's failure to stand up to tyranny." How prescient were they then considering the state of geopolitical politics today?
  • It was on her watch when the Muslim Brotherhood gained power in Egypt. It was on her watch when Syria plunged into civil war hell. She actually called Assad a "reformer" at one time.
  • It was her State Department that refused to brand Boko Haram a terrorist organization. Since then, Boko Haram has terrorized and murdered thousands of people especially young women and Christians.
  • Remember, HillaryCare was the forerunner to Obamacare---both disastrous.
  • To put it mildly (perhaps not), her public appearances have been a total disaster this past year. From the failed roll-out of her book {Hard Choices} to basically claiming she and Bubba were poor to parroting Obama two weeks ago in proclaiming that businesses and corporations don't create jobs. 
  • Jonathan S. Tobin wrote recently: "Clinton never seems to know what she stands for except her own advancement." He referred to it as "transparent inauthenticity."
  • This summer, when several of her supporters were asked about Clinton's accomplishments, they couldn't think of one major accomplishment other than "she traveled a lot."
After all of this and more, the only thing Hillary Clinton has left is her name recognition. Unfortunately, we continue to be a nation of many knuckleheads especially when it comes to politics. After all, how else can anyone explain Obama winning two terms? And we know how schizophrenic voters can be. They often vote for the same politicians who created the problems in the first place.

Having said that, the 2014 mid-term elections do offer up some hope (not the Obama type hope either). It appears more Americans are finally realizing they've been conned big time. Nevertheless, as I wrote recently, don't put a fork in Hillary Clinton yet. But the recent elections show that more Americans are keeping their forks handy---for now.

Postscript: Since this was posted, more Hillary Clinton scandals are emerging.
