The only thing that Hillary Clinton has ever been sorry for is getting caught, and that applies to any one of the many circumstances she has so often been tangled up in over the years. Merely coincidence—could happen to anyone. Yeah, right! We all stumble around in the cattle futures market and make a hundred grand on our first try—no insider information needed. We all pack away incriminating records from our law firm and forget where we put them. And because we are all royalty, just like Hillary, we too get away with it. Ummm, no.
As with Benghazi, Ms. Clinton admits some wrongdoing and righteously adds she takes full responsibility. Really? What exactly does that mean? If this is true, then why is she only apologizing now for the email server? Could it be that her campaign is suffering because of the constant distraction? Is Hillary’s ambition to become president in jeopardy? In truth, she has already tried every ploy available to fend off the onslaught of negative press and each has failed. More and more evidence is coming to light demonstrating that Ms. Clinton is incapable of executing the simplest and most basic of tasks in the role of Secretary of State: the proper and secure handling of communications. So far, however, the only fallout from this stupendous lack of judgment has been the slippage of her poll numbers. In truth, Clinton should be facing a Grand Jury by now. There should be a Special Prosecutor and a full investigation into her efforts to sterilize that private server, as well as a look-see into other abuses while in office. Instead, cronyism and ugly truths that she and the rest of the outlaws who populate Washington have on each other will keep all lips tightly zipped, and Hillary will walk away looking lily-white innocent. She sat in that ABC interview and had the audacity to tear-up and act as if she was distressed by the knowledge that the American people do not trust her. Surely she cannot be so naïve. If she is that naïve, Hillary Clinton does not belong in the White House.
This current apology smells the same as the one she made back in the day when she came before the microphones and told us that she was going to stand by her husband, and no doubt she hopes it will yield the same results. Back then, women across America fell to their knees in tears for one of two reasons: either they were nuts, or Hillary actually sold them that load of smoking BS. She should have been given an Oscar for Best Fake Performance, but instead she won the public’s sympathy for her determination to stay with the man who humiliated her. (For awhile there, everywhere you went folks were singing Tammy Wynette’s ode to sticking with philandering husbands.) Out of it all, she became the smartest woman in the world in the American media’s opinion, even though there is nothing in her subsequent career anyone can point to in order to substantiate that claim.
As the ABC interview progressed, the softball questions kept coming. Hillary was asked to comment on the possibility of Joe Biden entering the presidential race. She tried very hard to find the words to say that Uncle Joe would be a good president but then she stumbled all over the delivery—the old wink and nod validation didn’t seem to work. Then it was on to Donald Trump. She really did not want to come out and say anything about Trump directly but instead insinuated rather cutely that he was, as we say down here in Texas, all hat and no cattle. She sat there and acted as if the names of those two possible contenders should not be used in the same context as hers (exalted as the Clinton name is), yet as I look out across the vast spread of her political ranch, I don’t see cattle one.
Somewhere among all the slugs that populate Washington D.C., I hope there are enough good people to go after Hillary Clinton with the full force of the law. Even if they fail, I hope they make her life the miserable hell that those four Americans who died at Benghazi experienced in the last precious moments of their lives—moments that were in her and Barack Obama’s hands, both of whom let them die without so much as lifting a finger on their behalf. Anyone cut out of such fabric should never be allowed to enter the Office of the President much less be elected to it.
So let Ms. Clinton keep on campaigning and spreading her apology (such as it is) far and wide. Let her keep cranking up that tired old speech about the war on women and spouting off more socialist propaganda. Certainly America deserves to have a woman president one day, but at this point we can only pray to God it isn’t Hillary Clinton. This woman has had more than enough chances to serve the people and she has made a mockery of both the chances and the people who gave them to her. Maybe she needs to invent few more apologies as her campaign moves from town to town. And, just for good measure, all the venues could pipe in the old Brenda Lee standard, I’m Sorry —wouldn’t that be a perfect way to revive her campaign (again)?
