She’s right. If she were a man she might actually be held accountable for Benghazi, among her many other failures.
Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday night that excessive partisanship flowing through the nation’s political system is causing the U.S. to march “backwards instead of forward” and pointed to fall elections as a sign of how the country might tackle problems.
The former secretary of state reflected on her time at the State Department, the U.S. relationship with Russia and the advice she gives to young women during her appearance at the annual Women in the World summit. But when the moderator asked her to address the nation’s future, Clinton cited the need to “get back to evidence-based decision-making.”
What the hell is she talking about?
“There is just pure ideology, pure partisanship. We disguise a commercial interest behind a political facade and the result is that we’re kind of marching backwards instead of forward,” Clinton said. She said the U.S. needs to address economic hardships facing many young people to produce an “inclusive prosperity.”
We’re marching backwards? Well, who’s in charge these days?
Clinton said she was “very proud of the stabilization and the really solid leadership that the administration provided” that allowed the U.S. to address problems in Ukraine and other global hotspots. “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense,” she said.
Is she for real?
Addressing hundreds of women, Clinton said there’s a double-standard for how women are treated in the media and that she counsels young women to be resilient when they face challenges. “Believe me, this is hard-won advice,” Clinton said to laughter.
A double standard? Really? When has this woman ever faced the slightest bit of scrutiny in the so-called mainstream media? Heck, when has she ever faced a tough question?
