WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton mused aloud about the significance of America electing its first female president. Left unsaid: whether she might try again to be the one.
In a video of a private Clinton speech posted to YouTube on Friday, Clinton told a Canadian audience that she hoped the U.S. would elect a woman to the White House because it would send "exactly the right historical signal" to men, women and children. She said women in politics need to "dare to compete" and the nation needs to "take that leap of faith."
This is wrong on so many levels I don’t know where to begin. I would have absolutely no problem with a woman president, as long as she is competent. [I’d have no problem with a black president as long as HE was competent. Sadly the one we presently have ain’t even close.] Hillary Clinton is the most incompetent woman ever to hold a position of responsibility in the federal government. If she had not married Bill Clinton, I imagine no one would have ever heard of her and she would have lived out her life in the Chicago machine, maybe eventually being elected mayor of that lovely city. That city certainly couldn’t have done any worse than they did by electing Rahm Emanuel.
As the tragedy that is Benghazi slowly and painfully unfolds, the breathtaking height of Hillary’s incompetence will come to light. Her famous rant about who killed four Americans in Benghazi – ‘What difference does it make‼’ – should be emblazoned on her headstone. Or perhaps ‘I don’t recall’ would fit better on a marble grave marker.
America is NOT about ‘sending signals.’ In the world we live in today, where our enemies are emboldened by the incompetence in the current administration, and our ALLIES no longer trust us, sending a signal by electing a woman is the LAST thing this country needs! The fact that THIS woman thinks the Presidency of the United States is about sending a ‘signal’ is so terminally ignorant, it takes my breath away.
