Video: DNC attendees canít name a single Hillary accomplishment
Hotair ^ | 03/05/2014 | AllahPundit

Posted on 03/05/2014 11:48:03 AM PST by SeekAndFind

A clever rejoinder from CNS to the “Ready for Hillary” crowd: What is it, exactly, that you’re ready for? Lest you think they’re cherry-picking the least articulate Democrats they ran into, have a look at this new data from Pew. Alex Seitz-Wald, citing other data from the same poll, frets that Benghazi is more of a liability for Hillary than liberals think because it topped the list of her biggest negatives at 15 percent. Is that really her biggest liability, though? Behold:

pew

She spent eight years in the Senate and another four as secretary of state and yet her time as First Lady (including dealing with her husband’s affair!) is still her second-biggest credential within her own party. That’s her core liability. She’s been an icon for so long that people take for granted that her iconic status is based on major achievements. And it is, sort of — she’s achieved lots of power. She just hasn’t done much with it, which is why voters mention her tenure as SoS as something positive about her without mentioning anything she did as SoS. In fact, Hillary’s a more interesting example of the celebrity candidate than even Obama was. Obama skyrocketed to stardom and didn’t have to worry about the thinness of his actual record; that was, after all, one of his big selling points, that the country was ready for someone young and unspoiled by politics after the Bush years. Hillary’s trying to pull off something much harder, a celebrity candidate whose own fame has been his/her biggest credential for decades yet who, necessarily, will be running on experience. The better the GOP does at giving her the emperor’s-new-clothes treatment, demystifying her by forcing people to focus on how thin her record really is, the harder she’ll have it during the campaign — in theory.

I say “in theory” because … well, just watch these people cooing over her for no particular reason, by their own admission. The same Pew poll I cited above shows that 67 percent approve of the job she did as secretary of state even though there’s no “achievement” from her tenure commensurate with the disaster of Benghazi. There are lots of independents out there who couldn’t name a Hillary accomplishment either and who’d nonetheless behave just like the Democrats you see below. Demystifying an icon is very hard. And don’t forget that Hillary, uniquely among celebrity candidates, is able to run on someone else’s record in lieu of running on one of her own — namely, Bill’s. She won’t be easy to beat, as comically surreally true as this is.

"Last week, the Democratic Party had their winter meeting and MRCTV's Dan Joseph decided to ask DNC committee members and guests if they're ready for Hillary--and why. Some said she had about a hundred moments of greatness when she served under President Obama - but, strangely, couldn't name a single accomplishment of hers, besides marrying Bill Clinton.

Another attendee mentioned Clinton's stance on abortion as a reason to be super excited for Hillary Clinton in 2016. As for her accomplishments, none came to mind, but she noted that Obama saw a reason for her to be nominated as Secretary of State."

Hillary is an astonishingly weak candidate. But, so were Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney. So, to lose to Hillary the GOP needs to nominate another RINO. If they work hard they can still pull defeat from the jaws of victory.

Dodging sniper fire.

Surrogate mamma for Webster Hubbel

Cookie Baker

Hitting pedestrians with her limosense and refusing to stop to give aid.

Showing off Natalie Portman's headlights.

Rolling up dead staffers in area rugs for disposal.

There. That's just a start.

Oh I can think of plenty of Her Thighness’ achievements for the morons in the democrat party.

1. She can speak words and stand on her feet at the same time.
2. She is a woman.
3. She is a strong woman.
4. She put up with that lying philandering husband of hers (this is an achievement because it shows she’s in control according to the bizarro thoughts of dem morons).
5. She has a daughter who can also speak and stand at the same time.
6. She’s an excellent money manager (Rose Law billing records).
7. She survived a concussion and can still talk and stand at the same time.
8. She’ll fix Obamacare. Yep, she sure will!
9. She knows how to answer the phone at 3 am (just ask her!).

And so so many more.

But the greatest achievement of the wife of former President Scumbag is .......

10. SHE’S NOT A REPUBLICAN!!!

So there it is, plenty of reasons to vote for Clinton’s third term.

I’ll have to admit that the National Enquirer has been right several times in the past.

But this one.... hmmm... I’ll have to study the issue more closely.

This outfit is mainly known as a gossip and rumors paper so I take their claims with some caution.

Tell that to the people who worked in the white house travel office.

And before this mess called Obamacare we are dealing with was called that, we called it Romneycare. It wasn’t new when Mitt Romney ran with it, it had been around quite a while. Previously it had been called Hillarycare.

What office did she hold again when Hillarycare was pushed?

That recipe for Hillary’s Chocolate Chip Cookies is for publication purposes only, it is not the ‘family recipe’ used by many of the Rodham’s. The Family recipe includes 3/4 cup of ground Arsenic, along with just a ‘dash’ of freshly rolled Strychnine. Oh, and don’t forget to mix powdered Ex-lax with the white confectioners sugar for a memorable topping display.

Unelected co-president. And she was holding closed door meetings.

And before that it was called Kennedycare (which is what Obama TRIED to call it after fat dead red Ted died).

Hillary(!) has several accomplishments: 1) abysmal taste in wardrobe — what is it with those ugly pant suits (?), and 2) she drinks alcohol like a thirsty camel. Other than those two items, none.

Hillary has a famous last name.
Got to be co president despite the law.
Designed obamacare.
Made a ton of money in cattle futures.
Found the missing rose law firm billing records.
Lost a dear friend, Vince Foster
Dodged snipper fire.
Got elected senator from a state she didn’t live in.
Got appointed sexretary of state with no qualifications.
Dodged any accountability for Benghazi.

Looks qualified to be a democrat candidate for president.

She’s an excellent money manager (Rose Law billing records).
She's excellent at economics as evidenced by the fact that she made a killing in cattle futures.
She managed to escape justice by leaving her fingerprints on classified FBI files and lying through her teeth by denying she ever saw them.
She stood by her man, a philandering, womanizing sexual predator.
She cozied up to world renowned terrorist Yasser Arafat and his wife.
She carpet-bagged her way into the Senate.
She successfully dodged sniper fire at an airport in Bosnia.
She armed the Syrian “Rebels” with weapons from Libya.
She refused to send help to four brave Americans who died in Benghazi.
She "reset" relations with Russia which resulted in a more friendly and less aggressive former Soviet Union.
She granted Afghanistan the status of a major non-NATO ally.
She successfully dodged answering pertinent questions about what really happened in Benghazi by coining the phrase, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"

The list goes on and on, but, as has already been mentioned. the number one reason the left loves Hillary so much is.....

She is not a Republican.

When the hildahag was in the WH she had no authority to order any government agency employee to do anything. However, recall when slick was president and the democrat's mantra was; Two for the Price of One? To me and many others I'm sure, all that meant was that we the people took a double screwing. It was common knowledge that the hildahag was slick’s boss and pretty much made the calls in the WH without challenge. (SEARCH; Whitewater, Cattle gate, FBI files/Craig Livingstone, travel gate, Janet Reno/DOJ/Waco TX, V. Foster, R. Brown, etc.......) She had slick by the gonads over his peccadilloes and as documented, she relentlessly wielded her First Lady authority like a dictator. I'm not defending slick but allegations that the hildahag was the evil in the WH is hearsay and circumstantial but when circumstantial evidence is allowed to be laid out to make a case, it has very often put many folks in jail. When it comes to the sinister, evil things that occur within her circle of influence (too many to even list) should eliminate any doubt that she was and still is up to her neck in criminal thuggery. In addition, as a junior attorney, she was fired from the Watergate investigative committee for colluding with the Kennedy family to fabricate and falsify documents of a federal investigation. Need more?

Hillary’s accomplishments amount to no more than checking off all the right folks and venues on a political dance card, as if merely being in some place at some time is an accomplishment.

As Secretary of State she had two jobs. For the White House her job was to do nothing nor attempt to accomplish anything on foreign policy, that was not HER job; it was the preserve of the White House. Obama had her IN his administration, to keep her from being a kibbitizer from the sidelines. Hillarys other job was for the geopolitical influence peddling business of Billary, to get around and get as many photo ops with as many foreign dignataries as possible, as though a photo op translates to an accomplishment.
