Hillary Clinton was not
a great secretary of state

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/26/2013 5:51:31 AM

If there was one constant through Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s appearances before congressional committees Wednesday, it was that lawmakers fell all over themselves heaping praise on her for the job she has done. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., was typical, saying: "Madame Secretary, you have represented us with tremendous strength and poise. You have won us friends." Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., gushed, "We don´t have time to give a full listing of the achievements you deserve credit for."

I thought "Halfbright" won the booby prize until PIAPS took the job. Absolute worst SoS in my lifetime. However, the rats in the House and Senate treated her like the second coming. I live in a world turned upside down...

Has anyone ever seen a list of the actual achievements of PIAPS as SOS? If there´s no list there are no achievements! I don´t know of any.

I watched for the entire day. She did not impress, she did not tell the truth. She did not answer a single question put to her.

The republicans made their points very well. Buying into the msm mantra that she was equisite in her performance is ludicrous.

Do we believe the lying media? What happened to our common sense. Are we so willing to blame republicans for her every failure?

This blaming of our side is akin to the ´won´ blaming Bush for everything. Have adopted that same mentality?

Seems so.

To answer No. 3´s question. Look it up - she has never achieved anything on her own except being married to Bill. He knows her better than anyone else does & even he stays as far away as he can from Nanny McPhee. In her "career" she´s done a lot of lecturing, pandering, campaigning, yelling, intimidating, harassing, traveling & just being an over all boor. In other words, she is all TALK. We only have her & James Carville´s hype that she is the smartest woman in the world, but there is NO tangible evidence of it, anywhere. She is a tough-talking, mean-mannered feminist & that is the ONLY reason she is admired by the fools who are taken in by her. She is a bigger zero than president zero.

Watching the senators drool over her and John Kerry, I´ve finally been convinced, without a doubt, that term limits are a necessity. If you´ve been a member of their royal debating club, you will be nominated for any post that a president decides for you -unless of course you happen to be a true conservative. Ask Clarence Thomas.

Like Obama, Hillary is also a Saul Alinsky acolyte. She married a proud draft dodger because she too hated the idea that America stood in the way of the ´wave of the future.´ And she was up to no good in Arkansas either as she was a co-conspiritor in White-Water (remember that?) She moved to NY as a Democrat carpetbagger and traded on her weepy scorned woman creds to get elected senator. The house she bought with Bill was paid for by someone else -- McAuliff -- who is now running for senate as a Democrat carpetbagger here in VA. Finally, she helped Bill pick out the White House furniture they stole and even her dipstick brother got involved in arranging the pardons of criminals by Bill during his last days in office -- all done with connivance of our current Attorney General. She is a foul mouthed mean-spirited, pampered witch who furthered the disastrous foreign policy dictated by Obama. And all of lowly citizen-taxpayers will pay for their folly sooner than we think. A nuclear Iran, Al Qaeda-everwhere, and a weakened military to ´defend´ us and Western civilization. The Democrats in both houses were pitiful toadies. They were unwatchable wretches in the hearings and madam secretary got away with lies and dissembling. What have we become?

What the headline states is impossible. Sir Edmund is the smartest woman in the world. And her husband has a 160 IQ. JFK was the most athletic president we ever had. Jimmy Carter was a nukulah engineer. Hussein was a law professor. Michelle is a fashion plate. Remember all this. You will be quizzed!

Just what exactly are her ´accomplishments´?

She has presided turning over the Middle East to Islamists, the weakening of prospects for peace in Israel, drone killings everywhere without useful information, North Korean long-range middle tests aimed at America, the rise of al queda in North Africa, the murder of an Ambassador in Libya...in short: She and her boss stink.

Think about it, the US face to the world is Obama, The Hag, perhaps Reid and Panetta. What a disgrace. And as the Mid-east and north Africa crumble, their collective bungling becomes more apparent each day.

Fie on them.

Poster Aunt Agnes @ #6 gets it. Hillary is like Obama in so many ways: ultra-liberal, mean-spirited and nasty in-your-face when it comes to political opposition, and an Alinsky disciple, but, most of all, for her lack of accomplishments of her own. Hillary is "great" simply because people say she is, not for any real achievements. Hillary is like those vapid celebrities of the ´60s and ´70s who were "famous" for being famous. Even going back to her so-called "stellar" career as a lawyer. She was with that Rose Law Firm in Little Rock and messed that up. She was the head of education reform/improvement in Arkansas and the state went from 49th to 50th in educational quality. If it were possible to be even more empty than Obama, it is Hillary. Yet probably a majority of the electorate will flock to this lousy bum in ´16.

Like Obama, Hillary is an example of Leftist fantasy ideology as purveyed in academia and the media. Her main value is symbolic. It is not what she has done or not done that matters but what she represents. For many people, Hillary Clinton is the incarnation of a political logos next to which mere reality, e.g. facts, truth, documentation, logic, even rationality, counts for less than nothing. Hillary Clinton is the representation and carrier of the hopes, dreams, and deepest and dearest beliefs of a segment of the population. This is why she is able to act indignant at being asked to give an account of her official actions and to utter irrational non sequiturs such as "What difference does it make?" what happened in Benghazi, who did it, why they did it, and whether Americans were deliberately misled by their own government about what happened.

The shorthand for this phenomenon is called the cult of personality. It seems to be something to which Leftists are peculiarly vulnerable, especially when combined with celebrity worship as a feature of mass culture.

As far as I am aware, Hillary Clinton has never in her entire life actually done or accomplished anything of special note - but that is entirely beside the point for her admirers. What she has done is to be Hillary Clinton, and for them, that is more than enough.

#9, I join #15 and others in thanking you for your post and adding my dittos.

May I add to your list, the outrageous pandering to the Jews of New York when she ran for the Senate seat! I was sickened when she did that, and I had the feeling that not a word she uttered was honest. Yet the gullible Jewish voters fell for it hook, line, and sinker. Now look what she has "accomplished" in North Africa. Does anyone honestly think that the US would come to the aid of Israel?

According to her testimony, she didnt see requests for help, didnt send Susan Rice out to lie to us, didn´t have anything to do with the talking points about the video (although she spewed them for days in an outraged voice). She says she takes full responsibility for what happened, but didn´t admit any mistakes. Huh?

I had almost forgotten how horrid she was because we have found someone that is worse! God help us.

They did this with Kennedy. Clintoon, Obama and now Hillary.
We need to counter that lie everytime we hear it with facts.
She had NO good results as SS. The middle east has become major radical islamic strongholds because of her and Obama. There is not peace anywhere there was not peace before her time in the SS position. The world is in worse condition becaues of her.

What, are you people kidding here?
Achievements?!? From Hillary! Clinton?

Realize that this is a politician of the type where "rolling up my sleeves and going to work for the American people" was considered more than enough experience when she carpet-bagged her way into that Senate seat.

Rolling up her sleeves is her ONLY real accomplishment. Though a caveat here is we´ve heard from no one who can truthfully claim to have seen her actually rolling up those sleeves.

"Not a great secretary of state"?

I´d go much further. I´d say she was "not optimal."

#6: Accomplishments? How about: a. making a killing trading futures "thanks to reading the Wall Street Journal"; and b. tolerating Slick Willie long enough to jackpot the gravy train?

#7: The Constitution provides "term limits," or better. We get to exercise them every 2 years. If we still have problems with these tools in hand already, it´s because we´re not using them effectively, not because we lack the right ones. And would the people who voted to allow themselves legal insider trading be likely to stand and watch while we term-limit them back to reality?

#27: Seconded, with full agreement. For the Left, there is The Narrative. The Image. To them that is Received Truth. It´s kind of like the "celebrities" who are "famous for being famous." The rational mind says, "Well, but -- ?"

#29: The US would aid Israel. Obama, not so much.

#31: Rubio, like Jindal and Obama, isn´t legally qualified to be President. Period.

#43: Only because you´re a sexist. Only because you´re a sexist. But it works for me -- any reason´s a good reason.

The Democrats gushing over Hillary. Even many Republicans were gushing over her and on a defensive posture. The main questions to ask this bumbling liar was did you go along with the Video which caused the rabble rousing in Benghazi! The US UN ambassador proclaimed to the world that the video was the cause.Where were you Madam Secretary when 4 US patriots were fighting for their lives.( span of 5 hours ). Who gave the Command not to help these unfortunates in the compound. There is only one person who could have given the order and that was Obama Commander in Chief who was more concerned about getting re-elected by dancing off to Vegas for more moula.Any questioning concerning Panetta´s public statement , it´s unreal ´that their was no help nearby or a force ready to come to the aid of these 4 US citizens who were being murdered . Fighter aircraft 15 to 30 mins away , troop carriers 45 to an hour. Finally why the gag on the compound injured being treated in Hospital ? Not one question asked Panetta for his reasoning . Help was too far away . Mind boggling.

So what exactly does "taking responsibility" mean when you then go on to make excuse after excuse why this had nothing to do with you??? She lied, dodged, and filibustered with a bunch of crap to run down the clock - using her screeching as a "best defense if a good offense" ploy.

But I have finally realized what her great accomplishment is - what she really is a genius at! Self-Promotion! Just like her boss, her husband....so many in D.C. Real accomplishments are just so passe in this brave new world.

That tells you ALL you need to know about lefties. Unfortunately, they permeate our existence in masses much like cockroaches, and we cant use DDT on them because they knowingly banned it ahead of time!

I´d say shame on you Hillary Clinton, but as we all know, lefties were born WITHOUT the shame gene.

Funny, how travel has now become a torture for commoners and a breeze for politicos.

When you are on the street or at the airport you have no stinking rights !

After the guns are gone travel will be the exclusive privilege of government types and friends.

Haven´t we all seen this movie before ?

Hillary has gone through life believing she is smarter than Bill. But upset that the only way she could get anywhere is on his coattails. And somehow those coattails have gotten her pretty far. The bottom line is that she really isn´t that smart. She´s good at lying and cheating, but other than that she´s pretty much a flop. And as SOS she has really shown that.

Well, there was one good thing about sitting through all that gushing:

It was a perfect set-up for Rand Paul´s brilliantly cutting opening remark.

In fact, Paul ripped Hillary so subtlly, but so effectively, the whole time, she was thrown off her game.

Shrillery and Barbara Boxer are in-laws,remember? Hillary brother Hygh Rodham son is married to Boxer"s daughter or v.v.
So it is a piece-of-cake for Boxer to help Hil.

speaking of relations -Nancy Pelosi´s husb is related to Gavin Newsome, the Lt Gov of CAlif.

I just had a post on my face book wanting people to send thanks to Hillary for her job as Sec. of State. It made me sickkkkkk,
I just saw the post here saying Rubio would not be his choice for President. That´s what happened in the last election. 3 million Republicans would not vote for Romney, so just did not vote. Now look what we have. A country that will never be the same - will be a socialist country before Obama stops.

Nice Work if You Can Get It,

Good morning. An epic addition to my collection of jaw-dropping hypocrisy: anti-gun California Democratic state senator Leland Yee was indicted for conspiring to commit wire fraud and traffic firearms. Oh, and the mayor of Charlotte was charged with bribery, and the FBI raided the office of a New York state legislator. That’s direct and straightforward bribery. But have you ever noticed how many elected officials have private law practices? Particularly those at the local or state levels, with jobs that aren’t necessarily year-round or full-time? It would be tough to ban these practices entirely, but it always seems like a potential back

U.S. taxpayers spent nearly $16 million to fly the Obamas to, from and around Hawaii and Africa, Air Force records obtained by Judicial Watch show. "The Obama family 2013-2014 vacation to Honolulu cost $210,877 per hour for travel alone; at 36.9 total hours, the cost to taxpayers for the vacation´s flight expense was $7,781,361.30," Judicial Watch said in a statement, noting an increase of $3,695,006.10 from flight expenses for the Obamas´ 2012-13 Hawaii Christmas vacation. Michelle Obama extended her Hawaiian vacation, traveling separately back to Washington after spending time with family friend Oprah Winfrey on Maui. President Obama said the trip to

Shock verdict — Mark Witaschek guilty

In a surprising twist at the end of a long trial, a District of Columbia judge found Mark Witaschek guilty of “attempted possession of unlawful ammunition” for antique replica muzzleloader bullets. Judge Robert Morin sentenced Mr. Witaschek to time served, a $50 fine and required him to enroll with the Metropolitan Police Department’s firearm offenders’ registry within 48 hours. Outside the courtroom, I asked Mr. Witaschek how he felt about the verdict. “I’m completely outraged by it,” he said. “This is just a continuation of the nightmare. Just to sit there. I could not believe it.” Shaking his head, he added,

I realize that’s not nearly specific enough, but there are only so many hours in the day. It’s quicker to just show you. Here’s what the pallid prevaricator said, one short month ago:(Snip for video) That was a lie. So of course, now he’s claiming he never said it:(Snip for video)“You’re a liar!” “No I’m not. Here’s the proof I’m not a liar.” “…I never called you a liar, you liar!” Is Reid in the middle of a nervous breakdown? Or is he just a lying-ass liar who lies and lies and lies? Are the two things mutually exclusive?

The Big Dreams of Corrupt Politicians

The arrests of Leland Yee and Patrick Cannon shows that some politicians still have real ambition when it comes to public corruption. Who said politicians lack ambition these days? The twin arrests of California state senator Leland Yee and Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon on Wednesday show that while politicians may have given up on New Deals or taking down Evil Empires, there are still some who dream big. Cannon was elected mayor of Charlotte in November, which incidentally happened to be almost a year into the FBI’s investigation of him. A former city councilman, it is alleged that the North Carolina Democrat

Global health success:

India has been certified polio-free by the World Health Organization after going three years without an endemic case of polio. The eradication of polio in India is heralded as one of the biggest achievements in global health efforts. The polio-free certification by the Regional Certification Commission came Thursday, along with a proclamation that Southeast Asia is free of the disease. Just five years ago, India was home to nearly half the global polio cases and considered one of the most technically difficult places to eradicate the disease, because of sanitation challenges and high-density population. India´s last case was reported in

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

Crucial black box data from Malaysia

THE black box from the doomed Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 may have over written key data, preventing investigators from ever knowing what happened during crucial moments of the flight. Search for the wreckage of the plane continues today with the detection of 122 “credible” floating objects in the Indian Ocean, but an expert has warned the black box may be “impossible” to find. According to The Telegraph UK, a United States black box detector is due to arrive on April 5, just two days before the black box’s pinger is due to run out of battery. By that time it

How Putin Bullies Obama

On a playground or in a bar, the most important thing to know about a bully is his motivation. What ticks him off? Who´s his next victim? If it´s you, how do you avoid a butt-kicking? On the world stage, Vladimir Putin is a bully—and President Obama not only seems clueless about the Russian leader´s inner drive, he embraces his ambivalence. "I´m less interested in motivation," Obama said Monday in The Hague, "and more interested in the facts and the principles that not only the United States but the entire international community are looking to uphold." Taken at face value, it´s a

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) is in trouble with the Federal Election Commission over his campaign’s purchase of more than $16,000 worth of “holiday gifts” (for donors) from a Berkeley, Calif., jewelry vendor who also happens to be Reid’s granddaughter. Reid has agreed to reimburse his campaign for the purchase, which the Reid office claims consisted of “coasters, picture frames and other trinkets” valued around $50 each. Yet questions remain: The Washington Post has asked Reid’s campaign precisely what kind of gifts the money was used to purchase. The campaign has yet to respond to multiple inquiries.

No, not quite. But the New York Times might as well have referred to President Obama with that title in a story by Jason Horowitz this past Sunday that tried to portray the president as being part of the Catholic experience in America. According to Horowitz (of Romney-was-a-prep-school-bully fame), President Obama began his professional career working in numerous Catholic parishes throughout Chicago´s South Side. He worked intimately with priests, bishops, and other Catholic leaders to serve the poor and needy. And despite not letting Catholic doctrine "tempt him," he nonetheless "effectively proselytized for the church." Moreover, the young Obama fit seamlessly into a

This is the story of MSNBC in a nutshell: It rose to prominence on its criticism of George W. Bush, peaked during Barack Obama´s historic 2008 campaign, and, by criticizing Republicans and championing liberal causes, sustained its viewership in the years that followed. Until now. MSNBC suffered harder loses in 2013 -- in terms of both viewership and revenue -- than either of its competitors at Fox News and CNN, according to Nielsen data featured in a new Pew Research report. Prime-time viewership declined by a staggering 24 percent (nearly twice the loss sustained by CNN and four-times that sustained by Fox

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Six months ago, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa subpoenaed the emails of former head of IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on
