Why does Hillary Clinton always cover for men who [bleep] up? (Or just [bleep]?)
“I take responsibility” for the protection of U.S. diplomats, Clinton said during a visit to Peru. But she said an investigation now under way will ultimately determine what happened in the attack that left four Americans dead.
Peru?? What, Costa Rica wasn’t far enough away?
No one expects anything of Biden, Secretary Clinton, but they do of the Commander in Chief. Libya was his call, and it was supposed to take “days, not weeks”. And it sure wasn’t supposed to take lives. When it did, when the going got tough, the President went to Las Vegas. (I detect a pattern.)

If there are those who see Hillary Clinton as a feminist icon, they need their glasses checked. Her husband banged everything with (and I apologize) a hole and a heartbeat. When that became known, she rejected the “Tammy Wynette” role of merely standing by her man in favor of lying down for him to walk all over. She deflected with lurid tales of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” (which nonsense I tried to believe at the time, but still couldn’t). Bill had had more “bimbos” than I’ve had hot meals, yet still she played her role.
Then came 2008, when President Dumbo showed up uninvited and took over her party. The heiress apparent was now merely “likable enough”. (Did he call her “sweetie” when he offered her Secretary of State?)
And now this.
If there’s one woman I do hope my daughter admires, it’s another presidential spouse:
George W. Bush credited his wife with his decision to stop drinking in 1986. She is also credited with having a stabilizing effect on his private life. According to People magazine reporter Jane Simms Podesta, “She is the steel in his back. She is a civilizing influence on him. I think she built him, in many ways, into the person he is today.”
I won’t judge either woman. They made their choices, and have had to live with them (although I’ve heard the Clintons essentially live separately). I find Laura Bush an admirable women.
Hillary Clinton is a liar. (Which will be the subject of my next post.)
