The Return of Bill and Hillary?


Hillary Clinton for president? Is this really the best the Democrat Party can do?

The public will be subject to endless comments concerning: Bill’s affairs. “Pay to Play,” respecting Clinton campaigns and the Clinton Foundation. The Whitewater Investigations. Her $100,000 profit in cattle future trades. Vince Foster’s death. The Rose Law Firm investigations. “Hillary Care.” Claims of obstruction of Justice. Her record of achievement or lack thereof as a senator and as Secretary of State. The Russian “Reset Button” failure, and the Benghazi tragedy. Her and Bill’s “personal Internet server,” negating governmental accountability and security requirements as Secretary of State. How poor they were after leaving the White House, with all their legal bills and two-million-dollar-plus homes. The millions they made with books and speaking engagements. The foreign contributions to the Clinton Foundation, especially from misogynistic sharia law Muslim nations, which conflicts with one of the foundation’s goals to create opportunities for “women and girls.” (Read Wikipedia analysis of the Clinton Foundation).

Are there no Democrat candidates who understand the great issues and problems facing our nation in the 21 century, such as our national debt, the economy and jobs, health care, and the threats to our nation imposed by Russia, China, and the Islamic movement? Where are the New Generation of Democrat Candidates? Do we need Bill and Hillary as”co-presidents” with all their past and present baggage, drama, and controversy again?
