The last couple of weeks has been filled with disclosure after disclosure about the Clinton's and their pushing the ethical and legal boundaries of our country and it's laws. Of course most of us who pay attention to this kind of thing and/or politics in general, know there are rules. Sometimes these rules allow certain things to take place but if a person is cautious about how things "look" then they are best left alone. Apparently this does not compute for Hillary and Bill Clinton.
Recent polls are showing a fast leakage of Clinton adherents from the column of "Trust" in her. She is also losing ground to those wascally Republicans vying for the same office. Clinton looks to me like she is a government official who sold her position for money and influence. Sure, she thinks she and her hubby covered their butts with their "Foundation" but the appearance of impropriety and illegality is so strong I believe she will have to bow out. Better to quit then be thrashed in the election by some upstart whippersnapper like Rubio, Cruz or Walker.
The things that the Clinton's learned in law school were not one's to be proud of apparently. It looks to me they learned how to fib and obfuscate and to make huge sums of money by selling their positions to the folks seeking favors. From the "sale" of the Lincoln Bedroom while they were in the Whitehorse, to the Whitewater land scams, and even to the "blue dress", these two Clintons have shown America the worst side of trust. Sure, during the reign of William in the nineties he had a balance in governance supplied by the Newt Republicans and things worked out pretty good for America. But left unfettered I think these Clintons are immoral and unethical when it comes to money.
The latest is the "uranium" deal that involves Canadians and Russians and all this while Hillary was the Secretary of State. Now it looks like their "Foundation" has received millions of dollars for their "help" and the winner is, wait for it, Vlad Putin! He and his country are where America needs to go to secure uranium in some form for the nuclear industry! Some estimates are that 145 million bucks got into the Clinton "Foundation"!
The sad thing is maybe American democrat voters don't really care. They hate the Republicans so much and are so stupid most of the time they will still vote for this woman. My goodness what does that say? Not much for smarts in my view. And if that is not enough, Hillary claimed they were dead broke when they left the Whitehouse in January 2001 (along with the silverware) and scared for their future! Oh please, she and Bill turned their "Foundation" into a billion dollar cash cow and one only needs to look at their travel bill for the last few years paid by the "Foundation". 70 million bucks! Jeeze, and she is out there telling all who will hear (while Bill gets $500,000 per speech) that she is just "one of us" regular joes and janes.
The phoniness of this woman and her hubby is breathtaking. But their is hope. The press, the main-streamers anyway, that is even more far left then the Clinton's is apparently a little skeptical. They would prefer a more liberal candidate, like Elizabeth Warren. So maybe the truth will out?
The thing that bothers me the most is the woman is vying for the highest office in the land which means she should have the highest standards and ethics of all us regular folks. But she does not. My goodness, though Jimmy Carter was a terrible President at least he had very high ethical and moral standards and I do not recall a "scandal" regarding money or access with him. I think Clinton needs a primary battle at the very least and if the democrats want even a small chance of victory in 2016 they better get one going. Otherwise, the democrat brand as pushed by the Clinton antics will wreck their party for decades.
