Hillary struggles to list accomplishments during tenure as Secretary of State
Capitol City Project ^ | 4 Apr 2014 | Joe Schoffstall

Posted on 04/04/2014 4:56:01 PM PDT by mandaladon

On April 3, 2014, Hillary Clinton spoke at the Women of the World Summit in New York City and was asked what she was most proud of during her tenure as Secretary of State. Clinton could not provide any concrete examples of the accomplishments she holds in high regard.

“When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” the moderator asks.

“Well, I really see — that was good — that’s why he wins prizes. Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton. Some of what hasn’t been finished may go on to be finished, so when President Obama asked me to be Secretary of State I agreed,” Clinton responded.

She continued, “We had the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, we had two wars. We had continuing threats from all kinds of corners around the world that we had to deal with. So it was a perilous time frankly. What he said to me was, ‘Look, I have to be dealing with the economic crisis, I want you to go out and represent us around the world.’ And it was a good division of labor because we needed to make it clear to the rest of the world, that we were going to get our house in order. We were going to stimulate, and grow, and get back to positive growth and work with our friends and partners.”

And there is the missing $6 billion dollars from the state department. Oh, and don’t forget the 400 stolen surface to air missiles during Benghazi fiasco. Now there are some accomplishments (sarc)

The low information voters asked, "what difference at this point does it make?" They don't care. She will always get their votes.

If elected, she promises to get even more innocent Americans killed.

How'd that "Reset button" work out for the Ukraine, Hillary?

How'd that "anti Islamic" video tale work out for the four killed in Benghazi, Hillary?

How'd the SOF agreements with Iraq, and Afghanistan work out, Hillary?

How'd all those dead Mexicans, and two federal agents work out in Fast & Furious, Hillary?

How'd the...oh, never mind, there are idiots who would vote for her just because she's a "thespian"...

Let’s see, could it be:
Overthrow of dictatorial but stable regimes by radical Islamists in the mid east?
or
The death of a US Ambassador, the first time in decades;
or
The “improved relations” with Russia;
or
The increased speed at which Iran is becoming nuclear capable;
or
the $6B lost under her watch;
or
Bringing the Muslim Brotherhood into the highest levels of the gov’t (Huma)
or
Oh, I know, it is the millions of miles she traveled doing absolutely nothing for the United States

Hillary shouldn’t feel alone .. in a Watters World segment, none of the people who support her could name her accomplishments either .. and boy was it embarrassing.

But, I was hoping it would cause a few of them to really take a second look at who Hillary is .. A FAKE.

This overrated old dried-up degenerate hag has accomplished nothing productivew for the United States. Here mere existence is a plague on us all. Benghazi is her main accomplishment. Has she washed the blood off her incompetent stubby fat hands?

I reckon Hillary's supreme accomplishment might be if she woke up every morning at 3 A.M. waiting by the phone just in case --- except for the fact she slept through it.
Certainly making an absolute fool of herself with the Russia "reset" caper, and her incompetence in the Benghazi murders and the subsequent coverup are damning.
Not to mention $6,000,000,000 "lost" by the State Deparmnet under her watch.
In a just world Hillary Rotten Clinton would be in the slammer.

She has no accomplishments except holding on to her horn dog of a HINO to stay in the running for the presidency. That’s why she also told the women at this conference that politics had become overly partisan and mean spirited.

Heaven knows she and Billy Jeff never made ugly comments about Republicans. Never mind that Billy Jeff made Mitt Romney into someone who would starve your children and take medical care from dying women in the 2012 campaign.

That's ironic, as the passage below is as pertinent today about Benghazi as it was used here:

Fourteen Techniques for Truth Suppression

1.Dummy up. If it's not reported, if it's not news, it didn't happen.

2.Wax indignant. This is also known as the "How dare you?" gambit.

3.Characterize the charges as "rumors" or, better yet, "wild rumors." If, in spite of the news blackout, the public is still able to learn about the suspicious facts, it can only be through "rumors." (If they tend to believe the "rumors" it must be because they are simply "paranoid" or "hysterical.")

4.Knock down straw men. Deal only with the weakest aspects of the weakest charges. Even better, create your own straw men. Make up wild rumors (or plant false stories) and give them lead play when you appear to debunk all the charges, real and fanciful alike.

5.Call the skeptics names like "conspiracy theorist," "nutcase," "ranter," "kook," "crackpot," and, of course, "rumor monger." Be sure, too, to use heavily loaded verbs and adjectives when characterizing their charges and defending the "more reasonable" government and its defenders. You must then carefully avoid fair and open debate with any of the people you have thus maligned. For insurance, set up your own "skeptics" to shoot down.

6.Impugn motives. Attempt to marginalize the critics by suggesting strongly that they are not really interested in the truth but are simply pursuing a partisan political agenda or are out to make money (compared to over-compensated adherents to the government line who, presumably, are not).

7.Invoke authority. Here the controlled press and the sham opposition can be very useful.

8.Dismiss the charges as "old news."

9.Come half-clean. This is also known as "confession and avoidance" or "taking the limited hangout route." This way, you create the impression of candor and honesty while you admit only to relatively harmless, less-than-criminal "mistakes." This stratagem often requires the embrace of a fall-back position quite different from the one originally taken. With effective damage control, the fall-back position need only be peddled by stooge skeptics to carefully limited markets.

10.Characterize the crimes as impossibly complex and the truth as ultimately unknowable.

11.Reason backward, using the deductive method with a vengeance. With thoroughly rigorous deduction, troublesome evidence is irrelevant. E.g. We have a completely free press. If evidence exists that the Vince Foster "suicide" note was forged, they would have reported it. They haven't reported it so there is no such evidence. Another variation on this theme involves the likelihood of a conspiracy leaker and a press who would report the leak.

12.Require the skeptics to solve the crime completely. E.g. If Foster was murdered, who did it and why?

13.Change the subject. This technique includes creating and/or publicizing distractions.

14.Lightly report incriminating facts, and then make nothing of them. This is sometimes referred to as “bump and run” reporting.

Sound familiar???
