May 15, 2014, 04:34 pm Rush Limbaugh: Clinton's only achievement is 'being female'
By Rebecca Shabad
Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh on Thursday said Hillary Clinton only has a shot at the presidency because she's a woman.
"You boil it down here and the only and greatest achievement Hillary Clinton has is her gender, being female," he said on his radio show.
Limbaugh referred to a video posted Wednesday by conservative media outlet PJ Media in which young people were questioned about their impressions of Clinton. They expressed their excitement over the prospects of a first female president, but PJ Media said they struggled to identify any of her accomplishments as secretary of State.
One of the reasons Clinton is back in the political world is because of gender, Limbaugh said, adding that Democrats would vote for a Hispanic president if Clinton doesnt run in 2016.
Because they see what theyve pulled off with Obama, he said. The first African-American president is beyond criticism. You cant criticize anything. You cant chronicle his failures. You cant do anything! Because youre being racist.
If a woman were elected president, Limbaugh said, any criticism of her would be considered sexist. He said any criticism of a gay president would be deemed homophobic and criticism of a Hispanic president would also be considered racist.
Identity politics is such a major aspect of the liberal, leftist, Democratic agenda, he said.
Limbaughs comments come a week after Republican strategist Karl Rove raised Clintons health issues from 2012 as a factor for the 2016 presidential election.
An initial report suggested Rove said Clinton had brain damage, but he disputed the report and said he never used that phrase.
"Thirty days in the hospital? When she reappears, she's wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what's up with that," Rove said, according to the New York Post last Thursday.
In December 2012, Clinton fell in her Washington home, hit her head and was diagnosed with a concussion. Doctors at the time said a blood clot had formed behind her ear.
Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill strongly denounced Rove's remarks and said the former secretary of State is "100 percent."
That Rush nailed it is evidenced by collective cow the Left is having over his comment.
Maybe Jeb Bush can change his gender identity and he can run like a girl too. It’s all the rage nowadays.
And she isn’t trying very hard either.
I’m not so sure of the whole “Hillary is a female “.
A Womyn perhaps, but female - not in the generally accepted sense.
Just what gender is “Bull Dyke” , anyway?
the irony is, she don’t want to be female.
I think Hillary’s biggest fear is losing in the primaries again. Fauxcahontas could give the libs their “first woman” without all the Clinton baggage.
Dubious. And of what species?
She is a very polished liar.
That’s an accomplishment of sorts.
When did the presidency become as multicultural as Star Trek? What we need next is a Ferengi president to replace the Constitution with the Rules of Acquisition. Rule #1: Once you have their money, you never give it back.
So, how many times did she have to take the DNA test before she passed?
Well she was married to the kingpin of liars. That is what they doa nd that is all they know is lies.
Well then she's in luck, because she's not.
And all any woman who wants to follow her has to do is abandon her own femininity to join up.
Not that that's something that can't be solved easily with antidepressants, alcoholism and endless sadistic loyalty tests, as millions of former American women have discovered.
Being female isn’t an accomplishment, however.
I think her accomplishment is getting this far with no real accomplishments other than a lot of failures and major screwing up of most everything she touches. Also, it’s an accomplishment of sorts that she has gotten away with so so so much! Most of us would be in jail for what she’s pulled or at least too ashamed to appear in public.
She and her husband have played the media the public like violins.
Maybe Jeb will do a Bruce Jenner transformation to earn street cred with da voturs! Bob
Reading down, I saw it was Hillary Herself....and I thought "darn it all".......
"Hillary Clinton might have a pretty hefty scandal brewing. It turns when she was an attorney working on the Watergate investigation, she was fired by her supervisor for lying, unethical behavior.
Jerry Zeifman, who said he is a lifelong Democrat, was a supervisor for 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. When the investigation was complete, Zeifman said he fired Hillary and refused to give her a recommendation. Because she was a liar, Zeifman said. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.
Dan Calabrese reports: How could a 27-year-old House staff member do all that? She couldnt do it by herself, but Zeifman said she was one of several individuals including Marshall, special counsel John Doar and senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum who engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.
Why would they want to do that? Because, according to Zeifman, they feared putting Watergate break-in mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by counsel to the president. Hunt, Zeifman said, had the goods on nefarious activities in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a day at the beach including Kennedys purported complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.
The actions of Hillary and her cohorts went directly against the judgment of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip ONeill, that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel.
Zeifman says that Hillary, along with Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar, was determined to gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon. And in order to pull this off, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception. The brief involved precedent for representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding. When Hillary endeavored to write a legal brief arguing there is no right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding, Zeifman says, he told Hillary about the case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970.
As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by (then-House Minority Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer, Zeifman said. The Judiciary Committee allowed Douglas to keep counsel, thus establishing the precedent. Zeifman says he told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committees public files. So what did Hillary do?
Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public, Zeifman said. Hillary then proceeded to write a legal brief arguing there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding as if the Douglas case had never occurred.
The brief was so fraudulent and ridiculous, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge. Zeifman says that if Hillary, Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar had succeeded, members of the House Judiciary Committee would have also been denied the right to cross-examine witnesses, and denied the opportunity to even participate in the drafting of articles of impeachment against Nixon.
Of course, Nixons resignation rendered the entire issue moot, ending Hillarys career on the Judiciary Committee staff in a most undistinguished manner. Zeifman says he was urged by top committee members to keep a diary of everything that was happening. He did so, and still has the diary if anyone wants to check the veracity of his story. Certainly, he could not have known in 1974 that diary entries about a young lawyer named Hillary Rodham would be of interest to anyone 34 years later.
And even that's questionable.
“She is a very polished liar.”
Not really. The media does her talking for her.
Rush is right. Her “Ready For Hillary” goons are already pimping her campaign as, “Let’s Elect The First Female President”. The freeloading, low information voters love garbage like that.
Rush is right. How do we combat sexist voters who vote for the female regardless her accomplishments? This is like voting for a black candidate just because he’s black and speaks well.
It’s gonna take a lot of village idiots to get her elected. But hey, they all came out for our current moron so I fear it could happen.
But do most senators (or ex-senators) who run for president have significant accomplishments in their resumes?
Nina Hartley would be a better specimen and a lot more successful at what she does.
You sure about that, Rush?
She also married well for a person with political ambition... but that's about it... female and married well...
I disagree with Rush... if Hillary doesn’t run - Democrats will look for a transgender Hispanic - who has an adopted Chinese daughter - with disabilities... an Indian wife... and a three legged dog.
You chris do NOT think like a democrat...
female.....that’s debatable in my book.
That is a very, very good point, I must say!
