Chelsea Clinton: Bill Clinton's actions 'taught me the importance of doing right' (VIDEO)
Washington Examiner ^ | June 13 2014 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 06/13/2014 9:59:04 AM PDT by PoloSec

Chelsea Clinton, who grew up in a White House dogged by scandal but one that also protected her from the media's spotlight, credits her dad's "words and even more his actions" for teaching her right and wrong.

In a touching Father’s Day message that is part of a worldwide campaign to put the focus on men who’ve nurtured their daughters, Chelsea Clinton said he helped guide her effort to make an impact on the world.

“It is impossible for me to describe the extent to which my father has supported me, nurtured me and empowered me over the years,” she said on the video for the G(irls)20 initiative called “Fathers Empowering Daughters." Sign Up for the Paul Bedard newsletter!

“Through his words and even more his actions, he has always taught me the importance of doing right, by our family, by the communities that I have chosen to be a part of and, ultimately, by the world,” she said, adding, “He has always challenged me to take risks, not unnecessary ones but the ones that are necessary to be the person that I want to be and to have the impact I hope to have on the world.”

Clinton is part of her parents' Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Does doing “right” include have an intern giving lip service to the head of state in the Oval office?

She’s such a lightweight. Her momma was a hard scrabble rabid ideologue grenade thrower. Wanted the constitutional rights of Watergate targets suspend and got fired by her Democrat superior from the investigation for being unethical. Imagine that.

Follow that by years of conniving, stealing, intimidation and abject lying and you have a role model that is IMPOSSIBLE for Web’s daughter to follow. She simply doesn’t have the capacity. She has never been down for the struggle, she isn’t even smart (even evil smart). She’s never had to scramble for stolen stock futures, nor inflate legal billings. She just gets paid - fantastically lavishly - because of momma.

“”Further indication of this screwed up family and Chelsea’s lack of intelligence....””

Have you heard her talk? It’s amazing that two daughters from two of our first families - Chelsea Clinton and Caroline Kennedy - could have the best educations that money could pay for and yet neither one has any aptitude for speaking in public. Remember Caroline and her “ahhhhs” and “you knows” - well, Chelsea barley opens her mouth when she speaks; speaking through her teeth.

I wouldn’t want my children to learn right from wrong from any Clinton!!!! Run for the hills, kids!

It is better to get caught trying than not having tried at all???

What exactly is she saying???

So Bill would rather get caught with a girl than not having tried to get the girl??? This is a life lesson Chelsea learned from daddy???

It is profoundly sad that a child had to learn values from a serial rapist and political opportunist like Bill, while having no one but Hillary to balance that out.

She sure can sling the BS like parents.

No wonder NBC paid her $ 600,000.

Worth every penny.

Do you know just how hard it is to get a Howdy Doody impersonator these days?!

What kinds of risks has this dolt ever had to take in her life. She’s had EVERYTHING handed to her. It appears she’s never been able to hold down a job for any length of time and now has to earn her keep as a member of the Initiative team doing what exactly?

Good grief.
This laugher in defense of the lowlife, lying Slick scoundrel, along with Chelsea's failures at NBC (from which she still draws $600 K/year Clinton name entitlement), etc., definitely makes her fair game for her share of earned scorn.

I expect B0 DunhamSoetoroSoebarkah will win the “Father of the Year” Award. They will present it to him on the golf course while his daughters are vacationing in some other continent.

Do y’all remember that at one of his conventions BJ said women needed to have abortion available because his daughter wanted to design space shuttles?

Leave alone the idea of a father mentioning his adolescent daughter in such a context - BO did it too so it seems to be standard boilerplate for the Dems - any engineer who designs triple fail safes for extreme heat, acceleration and vacuum has no business having an unplanned pregnancy.

But either he made up that childhood dream of hers, or he knew she was too dumb to be let near any vehicle without a chauffeur and it was all moot...

How can that be possible? There is no moral values in his satanic soul. Maybve he taught her how to keep her dress from getting stains.

“It is impossible for me to describe the extent to which my father has supported me, nurtured me and empowered me over the years,” Chelsea Clinton said..."

Truer words were never spoken - both about what never happened, and what did.

Bill Clinton was THE parent while Chelsea was growing up. He is the one that got her to and from school, and other activies. In that respect Clinton was a good father. It takes a lot of blindness for his daughter to say publicly that he taught her right from wrong.

If she ever admitted that to herself, it would destroy her. Denial is much easier.

she speaks like her, well, you know, her mother... these self-important liberals are delusional... she seems to think she has impacted the world... what impact has she made?

I wouldn’t want my children to learn right from wrong from any Clinton!!!! Run for the hills, kids!

perhaps she learned right and wrong for her father by doing the opposite of what he does... he showed her by example what NOT to do... :)

“dad’s words even more than his actions”>>>>>>

That means he taught her to “do what I say not what I do”.

I heard her interview someone on TV and she was truly AWFUL!

I think the network probably didn’t let her do that again.
