The media should be having a field day with presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. For her entire political life, Hillary Clinton’s name has been synonymous with scandal. From cattle futures to the Rose Law Firm to the White Travel Office, Hillary Clinton was never far from the scandals that plagued her husband's presidency.
Her tenure as Secretary of State did not include any significant accomplishments, but was marred by her inexcusable handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack. While serving as our nation’s top diplomat, she seemingly sold her office to the highest bidder as massive funds were raised by the Clinton Foundation. Despite her supposed advocacy for gays and women, her foundation accepted large donations from Middle Eastern countries that discriminate against both groups and possess horrible human rights records. For Hillary Clinton, actions speak louder than words and her acceptance of tainted money shows how little she cares about human rights.
As a presidential candidate, Hillary has been rocked by revelations that she used a private email account and server to conduct official Obama administration business. Not only did she expose these communications to potential hacking from foreign adversaries, but Hillary shielded these emails from the American people.
It should surprise no one that Hillary destroyed 31,000 emails and wiped her server clean. Clearly, Hillary Clinton does not believe in transparency and, once again, her actions are the hallmark of someone who specializes in duplicity. Sadly, these behaviors were nothing new as Hillary has been obfuscating and telling falsehoods her entire political career.
In the past five weeks, Clinton has only answered press questions twice, in both cases, quite reluctantly. Such mistreatment of the media and the American people should not be tolerated; however, most reporters are giving her a pass because they share her liberal beliefs. Of course, no Republican presidential frontrunner would be allowed to avoid media scrutiny for over a month.
This week, Hillary continued to avoid the press while campaigning in South Carolina, a state she lost badly to Barack Obama in 2008. While addressing her supporters, Hillary once again utilized a phony Southern accent. This laughable attempt at a diction makeover brought up painful memories of her 2007 speech in Selma, Alabama where Hillary donned the phoniest Southern accent of all time.
Thus, in her South Carolina campaign swing, Hillary managed to insult her audience, the media and most importantly the American people. While Hillary avoided press questions, her Republican opponent, Carly Fiorina, conducted a wide ranging news conference outside the hotel where Clinton was speaking. During her sidewalk interview, Fiorina showed the American people how a presidential candidate should behave by being open and honest and not backing down from tough questions.
The current edition of Hillary Clinton is a candidate who is neither genuine nor honest and is uninterested in answering questions about her questionable behavior. This is not the kind of person Americans need as President.
Obviously, Hillary learned about deceit from the master of political deception, Bill Clinton. As Paula Jones, a woman who accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment, noted in an interview this week with the Daily Mail Online, Americans should not elect Hillary Clinton as President of the United States. According to Jones, “She should not be running with the terrible history they have. Who would want Bill Clinton back a second time, doing the same stuff he was doing before, philandering with women? They have both lied.”
Exactly Ms. Jones; Bill Clinton and his phony, scandal tarred wife should be not allowed anywhere near the White House. If she is elected President, America should expect more of the same, lies coupled with relentless ambition, a very dangerous combination.
