Hillary Clinton a woman of no convictions
The Washington Times ^ | 8-12-14 | Charles Hurt

Posted on 08/14/2014 7:05:26 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

The rank spectacle of ex-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton suddenly turning on her commander in chief and former boss to shiv him in the back over the burning ruins she helped make of the Middle East is staggering to behold.

The brassiness, dishonesty and shamelessness as she slides into yet another presidential campaign season is enough to choke that old Arkansas draft mule of a husband she hitched her career to. The scheming calculation of it all would make Lady Macbeth take to the bed for blushing.

How on earth did such a crafty street fighter get so completely trounced by such a naive rookie like Barack Obama in 2008?

That Mrs. Clinton would up and disavow President Obama’s policy of ceding the entire world to evil forces — a policy she embraced and enforced for four years as his top diplomat — is a little hard to accept now as genuine.

It is by far the most naked and self-serving political repositioning in American politics since, well, since the last time Hillary Rodham Clinton performed a bald and shameless U-turn on Middle East war policy.

In 2002, she represented the state hardest hit by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. As the junior senator from New York, she gave a rousing floor speech and vowed to pursue our enemies to the ends of the Earth. She voted “with conviction” to authorize the invasion of Iraq.

“It is a vote that says clearly to Saddam Hussein: This is your last chance. Disarm or be disarmed.”

Don’t worry. She may yet be convicted of something!

Here I must disagree - when it served his purposes, Slick Willy could be as brassy, dishonest, and shameless as they come.

I got news for you....99.9% of all politicians have no convictions (although most of them should be convicted)

America should have learned all they needed to know about the Clinton’s when she laundered a bribe for her husband with those “cattle future trades”. The fact that she remains a “respected” and “credible” figure shouts volumes about the moral state of the country.

The only difference between Hillary and OBAMA is their sex. They are cut from the same cloth. Their only aim in life is to get as much “POWER” as they can, no matter who they throw overboard, to achieve their life long goals. Just like OBAMA, Hillary is a product of the LAMESTREAM MEDIA. These people will sell Hillary to us, the same way that OBAMA was sold to us.

Yep - Hillary learned how to be a slimy, self-serving opportunist from no less than the master himself...but Bill got away it because people like him. They shook their heads and called him a rascal and so he got away with bald faced lies with nary a blush.

But Hillary is a conniving shrew with zero ability to get people onto her side. Even though most of the media agrees with her positions on issues, they don’t like her personally, which is what led to Obama getting the nomination in 2008.

Attacking Hillary is no use.

For those Dems who would vote for her, they think they WILL get Bill.

I concur, though I believe your estimate is a bit conservative...

I first thought the “Arkansas draft mule” monicker didn’t fit, since mules, being hybrids, are sterile. But on second thought, the name fits. The one and only Shrillary progeny, though bearing the Clinton pedigree, appears to have actually been sired by “Sir Webbington Hubble of Whitewater”. Slick Willie may simply be firing blanks.

Just like rival crime families , the Clintons and 0bamas hate each other. They'll play nice together when the cameras are on , but Bubba and Hillary have never forgiven 0bama for 2008. Two incidents I recall illustrate this.

Remember when Bill was caught on a hot mic saying (I'm paraphrasing) "In a sane world that guy [Baraq] would be pouring coffee for us.".
Then the other incident when Bill took over a press conference for Barry and the press loved it. Barry was standing there with his thumb up the area of his anatomy that he's been leading from. Finally he says to Bill, "You got this, I have to get to a Christmas party, Michelle's waiting.". Then he walked off. You know he hated Bill for upstaging him, and Bill kind of treated him like a flunky in front of the press saying, "Yeah you don't want to keep her waiting" as Barry walked off stage.

IMHO these two incidents show the behind the scenes contempt they feel for each other.

I don't think Bill's going to be around in 2016. As he said, his death would be worth at least 2 million sympathy votes for Hillary.

"Hillary" and "naked" should never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER be used in the same sentence.

She'll already get an untold amount for playing the role as "grandma."

I expect Bill to be a doting grandpa, if only to take advantage of the old adage, "babies are babe magnets."

On top of all that, there is still her drinking problem.

Even Obama jokes about her drinking and drunk texting.
