Texan Molly Ivins was one of the savviest political reporters of all time. She once said (paraphrased) "As I survey the pack of sycophants in the Washington press corps, wriggling on their bellies to kiss the feet of those in power, I feel plumb discouraged about the future of journalism." Many syndicated pundits frequenting the pages of our newspaper are most certainly wriggling on their bellies to kiss Hillary Clinton's feet and crown her even before the election.
These "journalists" have conveniently forgotten and buried the commodity market and land development scams the Clinton's were involved in, the political favors she and Bill sold, and Bill's 140 pardons and 36 sentence commutations in the last hours of his presidency, including multiple felons who paid Hillary's two brothers huge sums of money to "represent" them. Marc Rich, who fled to Switzerland to avoid prosecution on tax evasion, was pardoned after his wife contributed $70,000 to Hillary’s Senate campaign and even more to Clinton's presidential library.
Just as many in the corrupt Bush administration are escaping punishment through obfuscation, lies, and withholding of documents, the powerful Clinton's escaped...though several of their partners went to prison. The Bush Administration has refused to release unredacted Dept. of Justice records regarding the Clinton's involvement in these matters claiming "executive privilege." If Bush is claiming executive privilege in behalf of the Clinton's, one can only wonder if Obama's opinion that Hillary is "Bush Lite" is more than corroborated by Bush's help in keeping their secrets under wrap.
It should also be mentioned that Clinton’s advocacy and passage of NAFTA was the beginning of outsourcing and the end for America’s manufacturing industry and many good paying jobs. Just as Hillary has refused to say that her vote on Iraq wasn't so smart in hindsight, she also denies the damage done by NAFTA...saying only that it wasn't implemented the way Bill had in mind.
And, as we all know, Hillary has no plan to implement needed changes to our health care system.
Who wants the Clinton's in the White House again...and why?
