Soon To Be Tamed

It appears to me the Democrats will soon be free of their Hillary problem. From my vantage point, I can't honestly see where she was ever qualified to be a presidential front runner, let alone the over-the-top fawning adoration she's received as some sort of feminist icon.
She wants to tout her experience, but there is nobody out there calling her bluff. Just what is her experience?

-OK, so she graduated from Yale. Big whoop tie doo. Considering it was folks with this caliber of educational pedigree that has screwed up most of everything the government was promising to do for us, a Yale degree,it seems, don't count for much.

-A partner in the prestigious Rose Law Firm. She wasn't there for trials. Her job was to use her marriage to the governor, and subsequent contacts, to find clients by offering the promise of having an 'in' with the governor's office.

-As First Lady of Arkansas, she took it upon herself to run the educational system. After ten years, Arkansas public schools were placing 49th out of 50 states.

-In the White House, one of her first tasks was to lead the search for the first female to become Attorney General. After successive failures, she eventually managed to get Janet Reno, a disastrous AG from any standpoint, confirmed.

-She led the Clinton Health Care debacle. Need I say more?

-She managed the never-ending 'Bimbo Eruptions', and the subsequent investigation and harassment of all of her husband's mistresses. Eventually, even this proved too much for her when Paula Jones refused to go away, leading to perjury charges against her husband, impeachment, disbarment, and a large settlement payout to Ms. Jones.

-Her Best Seller, "It Takes A Village" was actually ghostwritten.

I think the Democrats are wise to choose Obama.
Obama has near zilch in the way of public policy expertise. Given his charm and likeability, there is a chance he may actually accomplish something.
Hillary's experience has already shown that she cannot.

I think more than a few of us are in the same boat. I`m an independent, and I can`t see good in ANY of 'em.

I might have to write in Sponge Bob...

Nice takedown of Mrs. Clinton, Gino.

Gino said...

mark: and why havent any of her dem opposition pointed this stuff out? i dont get it. she must have FBI files on all of them.

Mark said...

Hard to know, Gino - I don't pretend to understand Democrat thinking (to the extent that's not an oxymoron). My only guess is that a lot of people in that party are beholden to the Clintons in one way or another and that has caused them to tread carefully.

Gino said...

all this, and i didnt even have to touch on the corruption, both personal and professional.

Hillary is looking better every day, if I was a Democrat.
