Hillary Clinton herself had difficulty coming up with anything she accomplished as Secretary of State, in fact she came up with nothing when asked. However, there is one thing she’s good at – dodging the truth.
Her most recent fiasco came this past week.
In an interview with The Atlantic, posted Sunday, Clinton suggested that Obama’s failure to support “moderate” rebels in Syia led to the growth of the violent Islamic extremism now sweeping northern Syria and Iraq.
She took aim at Obama’s foreign policy doctrine, saying, “Don’t do stupid stuff” is not an “organizing principle” for “great nations.”
David Axelrod, former Senior Advisor to Obama took to Twitter to lambast her. MoveOn and other extreme leftists attacked her for hawkishness.
It was a trial balloon that didn’t work.
Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said Clinton quickly called Obama to emphasize “that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him, his policies, or his leadership.”
“While they’ve had honest differences … some are now choosing to hype those differences but they do not eclipse their broad agreement on most issues,” he said.
People are “choosing to hype”? Seriously Hillary?
The Clintons and Obamas mostly stayed on separate sides of the island but they agreed to “hug it out” Wednesday evening at a party for a mutual friend.
At a book signing on the island before the party, a reporter asked Mrs. Clinton if she disagreed with the president’s Iraq policy, she offered, “I’m excited about signing books.” And with that, she started signing “Hillary” on the first page of her boring tome, greeting fans with a “nice to see you” or “bless your heart.”
Fans didn’t care that she’s a liar and they took little interest in the controversy. One would think that after six years of lies coming out of our administration, people would be sick of it.
On Wednesday, White House spokesman Eric Schultz bragged that the two Democrats have a “close and resilient relationship”. “The president appreciates her counsel and advice, but more importantly, he appreciates her friendship,” he said.
Are these hugs a thing of the past?
In the end, the White House offered no information about the hugfest, though Mr. Schultz did say, “the president and first lady also were happy to have the chance to spend time with Secretary Clinton and former President Clinton.”
