For the last 20-plus years, Hillary Clinton has been champing at the bit to assume the position of first female president of the most powerful nation in the history of the world. Letâ€™s face it â€“ Ms. Rodham has more than proven that she thinks very highly of herself and is of the opinion that sheâ€™s smarter and more qualified than any man, including her philandering husband, to run the United States of America.
Every breath sheâ€™s taken and every move sheâ€™s made has been with her eye on the prize. Itâ€™s likely that: while other women dream of commonplace things, Hillary fantasizes about putting her hand on the Bible on a cold windy day in January 2017 and swearing to uphold the Constitution, knowing that she wonâ€™t.
As she inches closer and closer to her lifelong dream, Mrs. Clinton probably thinks that having her as president is so appealing to most people that any mistakes sheâ€™s made, from the decades-old Whitewater scandal to her culpability in the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, are mere incidentals when compared to the prospect of having her in charge.
In Hillaryâ€™s mind, her pluses far outweigh the â€˜What difference does it makeâ€™ controversies that have her guilty â€˜Madame Secretaryâ€™ fingerprints all over them.
It is precisely that attitude that endows Hillary Clinton with the brazen effrontery, on the anniversary of 9/11 and the sodomizing and murder of an American ambassador in Libya, to accept the 2013 Liberty Medal.
Before handing out awards to a woman who promised to investigate and then bring to justice the parties responsible for what happened in Benghazi, shouldnâ€™t someone broach the subject of why the investigation into the death of four Americans seems to have been kicked to the curb?
The reason is that Hillaryâ€™s got more important things on her mind. Sheâ€™s got big, highfalutin things to do and places to go. Thatâ€™s why the late Christopher Stevens and the other three Americans who died that tragic night, Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty and diplomat Sean Smith, are just bumps on the road to the presidency.
Thatâ€™s also how, in Philadelphia at the National Constitution Center, Mrs. Clinton could shamelessly accept an award as hundreds of trained seals applauded her greatness. Clinton, an ambitious, self-promoting manipulator and prevaricator, was honored and recognized for her sterling career in public service, as well as her advocacy for womenâ€™s rights. The problem is that Hillaryâ€™s impressive contributions are more about a self-serving agenda than self-sacrificial service.
Up at the podium, never once mentioning Benghazi, â€œoverwhelmed by the tribute,â€ and speaking like the great sage of wisdom and experience she perceives herself to be, Hillary reminded the acolytes that she knows better than anyone that the U.S. needs to work toward balancing national security with human rights issues in Syria.
Then the partisan Piranha called for bipartisan unity in Washington DC, something sheâ€™s never contributed to and likely has no plans to do so in the future.
Said Hillary, â€œWhen we fail to make progress on the challenges facing our people at home, our standing in the world suffers.â€ America is now getting improving-our-world-standing advice from a woman whose husband, when he was president, was canoodling in the Oval Office with a Cuban cigar and a chunky intern.
Moreover, someone should ask Hillary: What happens to our standing in the world when four Americans are killed in a terrorist attack and the Obama administration falsely blames an absurd, anti-Muslim film, gets found out, and goes on to silence witnesses and act as if nothing happened?
But all is not lost! Speaking out from the midst of the crowd came a sole voice, crying out in the wilderness, demanding answers from a Liberty Medal winner trying desperately to forget, screaming: â€œBenghazi!
Benghazi! Benghazi!â€ And so, as she goes flailing about trying to remediate her sullied reputation in time for 2016, it should be our patriotic duty to make sure that every time the self-aggrandizing Hillary shows her guilty face, sheâ€™s reminded of her betrayal of those four Americans in Benghazi.
