The following is a comment that, I believe was made at MSN and is being spread around the internet. I figured I'd do my part and post it here as well. I do not know who wrote it, so I cannot attribute it properly. I will say I disagree with the requirement of being 50 for remembering any of this, as it's quite clear in my memory and I am only 37. I've done a bit of editing, but the text is as follows:
you’re under 50 you really need to read this. If you’re over 50, you
lived through it, so share it with those under 50. Amazing to me how
much I had forgotten!
When Bill Clinton was president,
he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even
after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a
democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers
about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.
President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female
attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood
– both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration.
she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my
worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas
David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas
resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.
Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil
Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing
led to the discovery of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be
withdrawn from consideration.
Apparently a slow
learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations.
She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department,
Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the
Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison,
Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to
award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson –
and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have
them reported to the FBI and fired.
This ruined their
reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month
investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime,
and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds.
A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.
not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a
close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of
White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the
improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and
the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and
the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied
knowledge of drug use in the White House.
this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more
than thirty years of service to seven presidents.
when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment
and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the scandal
defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:
• She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.
• She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor.
After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s
investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and
later admitting his affairs.
Hillary’s game plan
resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under
oath’ to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House
Hillary avoided indictment for
perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by
repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t
know” a total of 56 times while under oath.
leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated
$200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had
Now we are exposed to the destruction of
possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and
the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea
what shoe will fall next.
But to her loyal fans
(supporters) – I guess in her own words “what difference does it make?” I
guess being a female Democrat is all that matters. By the way, I’d post
the same if she were a Republican. You see, she’s already been in the
White House, she has a record we can review.
Hillary for prison 2016 would be a good start to help make America safe again.
