What 'small country' did Hillary Clinton lead?
The Washington Examiner ^ | 7-28-14 | Asche Schow

Posted on 07/28/2014 2:11:02 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday that she knows how difficult it is "to be the leader of a relatively small country."

Come again?

I know I’m relatively young, but I think I would have remembered President or Prime Minister or Queen Hillary.

Clinton made the comments on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" while discussing the conflict between Israel and Hamas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu.

“I’ve known Bibi a long time and I have a very good relationship with him, in part because we can yell at each other – and we do,” Clinton said. “And I was often the designated yeller.”

Clinton said she would often call Netanyahu to tell him to stop expanding Jewish settlements in what the Israeli leader called at the time: “Places that are on the map of Israel's strategic interests.”

“Something would happen – a new settlement announcement would come – and I would call him up [and say] ‘What are you doing? You’ve got to stop this’ and we understood each other,” Clinton said.

How did Clinton understand Netanyahu?

“I know how hard it is to be the leader of a relatively small country that is under constant pressure and does face a lot of legitimate threats to its existence from those around it,” Clinton said.

Oh, okay. But again, when was she the leader of a country? She was the first lady of Arkansas, which last I checked was not a country. She was the first lady of the United States, but she wasn’t the leader and the U.S. is hardly a "relatively small" country (it’s the third most populous country and the third largest in square miles).

She was a U.S. senator from New York for eight years, but again she wasn't the leader of the state and despite what some from New York might believe, it's not a country. She was also the secretary of state, and though she was the leader of the State Department, that's also not a country and she still answered to President Obama.

So what "relatively small country" did Clinton lead?

That easy to understand. Hillary ran the White House for eight years and she considers the United States to be small potatoes compared to The ENTIRE WORLD.

LOL. Hillary! 2.0 is just as stupid and inept of a campaigner as Hillary! 1.0. Time for another reboot.

At least we are getting more clues on her background. She was dirt poor but led a small country. Perhaps she was the President of Bangladesh.

Arkansas is a small, third-world country, but I think she was referring to the Medellin cartel.

This is the land that is promised to Israel by God:

“18 On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi[a] of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates— 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.”

“Washington, Jefferson, & Lincoln would laugh this woman back into obscurity where she belongs.”

Were our State a pure democracy...there would yet be excluded from their deliberations...women, who, to prevent depravation of morals and ambiguity of issue, should not mix promiscuously in the public meetings of men. (Letter from Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval)

“Even Jefferson said stupid things.”

Women make both the manners and the morals of a people. Neither rises higher than the gauge which women set in a community...Where a woman has bad manners, it always has in it an element of vulgarity which is more painful than it could be in a man. The result will be a society hopelessly vulgarized...with no end but to sink in an ever-deeper abyss of vulgarity.
Thomas Nelson Page, 1911

His statement regarding women and politics was genius. How far we have strayed from the wisdom of the Founding Fathers.

Women should not mix with men in politics?

You find these to be inspiring words.

It’s stone-cold idiocy and might have made sense two hundred years ago (not really).

Now it sounds like it was uttered by a moron.

No, women should not mix in politics, period.

“You find these to be inspiring words.”

Please refrain from attributing to me views I have not expressed.

“It’s stone-cold idiocy and might have made sense two hundred years ago (not really). Now it sounds like it was uttered by a moron.”

It seems so to you because you have been flim-flammed by feminist lunacy.

Scrape it off. Drag those leftist ideas out into the light of day so you can see through them.

There are many things that women can do, but should not.

Women don’t belong in politics?

Women are every bit as smart as men, in some ways smarter.

Believing they shouldn’t be involved in politics is less than stupid. It’s not about feminism. It’s about common sense.

Sad to see that anyone in 2014 still views life as if it were the Middle Ages.

“Women are every bit as smart as men, in some ways smarter.”

Which in no way indicates that they belong in politics.

“It’s about common sense.”

You haven’t thought it through.

“Sad to see that anyone in 2014 still views life as if it were the Middle Ages.”

People haven’t changed an iota for tens of thousands of years, much less since the Middle Ages. Things that were true of human nature then are still true today.

It's the penthouse atop the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock.

Workers landscape the Clinton Library Penthouse

NBC News:

Instead of bare concrete, the glass and steel building will be topped with strawberries, ferns, switch grass, roses and other greenery. “This is just an area he can come and relax in and just enjoy the view,” Clinton Foundation Facilities and Operations Director Debbie Shock said in a recent interview on the roof.
