We have to ask, how can the left support Hillary Clinton? There are so many unanswered questions; no we shouldn’t call them unanswered questions, we have answers, they just seem to defy all logic.
For example, it was learned yesterday that while Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State, she could have prevented the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi which killed four Americans, including the US Ambassador to Libya. A Senate Select Committee on intelligence, a bipartisan committee no less, said that the State Department was lapse on security even though there had been warning signs there could be an attack. We won’t blame Clinton for not sending help, that lies solely on Barack Obama but she didn’t do her job protecting Americans. It was shown earlier this week that she also knew it was a terrorist attack but she continued to lie with the president blaming the attack on a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video. This is the person the left wants as president?
Of course that bastion of unbiased reporting, The Daily Beast, claims Benghazi and the Clinton involvement will be forgotten about by election time. Really? Will those on the left who support Hillary Clinton also forget other things by then as well? Yes, we know, Hillary, like her husband and the current occupant of the White House are really good at making it look like they had nothing to do with anything and are just part of, as Hillary so famously said way back when she was First Lady, the vast right wing conspiracy to hurt the Clintons. They will be the first to tell you, they knew nothing about Whitewater, Travelgate or Monica Lewinsky. Wait, let’s scratch the last one.
Speaking of the last one, realizing your commentator is of the male persuasion and may be somewhat biased, how can any woman actually support a woman whose husband has continued to cheat on her, dragging the family name through the mud and continuously stands behind him? Each time she played the poor housewife who will stand by her man no matter what he does, is this really what the women’s movement is about? Letting yourself be a victim?
But not to worry, Hillary has jumped on yet another important cause. Yes it may not make any difference as to why four Americans were killed in Benghazi, but it certainly does make a difference how many elephants get poached in West Africa. Yes, she is going to save the elephants, just not US ambassadors.
True, Benghazi might be forgotten by the time November 2016 rolls around, but somehow we don’t think it will. Rather we predict by then there will be even more surprises to come out as well as all the old ones. By then we will have suffered eight years of two people in the White House who have absolutely no respect for the people who put them there, plus the eight years of the Clintons and their disdain for those who are beneath them, do we really want another eight?
We are well aware that one of the other potential candidates is currently embroiled in a much bigger scandal than Benghazi, after all traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge are so rare, they almost never occur, so when they do it is front page news. And after all this is Hillary Clinton, who could be the first women president ever, and look how well our last first president has done. Okay, maybe not so much. But like with Hillary Clinton, the left still supports him as well.
