    Stop Parroting GOP Lies That Hillary Clinton Is Dishonest

    By Rmuse on Sat, Apr 2nd, 2016 at 2:09 pm

    "Hillary Clinton is fundamentally honest and trustworthy" says former N.Y. Times Executive Editor and investigative journalist Abramson.

    [​IMG]
    It is not unusual for political campaigns to make innuendoes indirectly suggesting that someone is immoral, improper, or has done something horribly wrong. It is unusual though, for a campaign’s supporters to blatantly accuse an opponent of the same party of being dishonest, a lying liar, and an evil person who cannot be trusted.


    Defaming a candidate of the opposition party is one thing, if it is based on policy proposals or a character flaw borne out of past actions that predict dangerous tendencies. However, to demean a candidate’s character as dishonest and untrustworthy based on innuendo and dishonest proclamations, especially a candidate of the same party is despicable and a typically Republican ploy. It is why the perpetual claims from too many on the “Left” that Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is dishonest and untrustworthy are beyond reprehensible.


    +++++++++

    We now know that the Repubs cut funding to US embassies and we know that both Obama and Hillary requested additional security for Benghazi and the Rs refused. We also know that she broke no laws with her email. Nor has there been proof of criminality in an other accusations from the right. Truth is, Dems could learn a lot from the constant lies we've gotten from the GOP/RW.

    ++++++++++

    And, for those who want to know -
    What has she accomplished?

    I agree, this is a person who has spent decades in publich service. What is Trump's resume: being a real estate mogul, not paying taxes, not renting to blacks, 3 wives, cheating on them, sexually assaulting women, losing nearly a billiion dollars in one year, living like royalty while he pays no personal taxes, marrying younger and younger women with each marriage, being sued for raping a 12 year old, etc. No, absolutely no public service.

    How can someone who has NEVER been a public servant be prepared to be president?

    Ahem...

    Anyone who has spent any time doing Executive recruitment knows that having held positions is less than half of the story. More important is what one has accomplished in those previous positions.

    Many times, I have heard people recommend someone by saying, "He was president of that company, so he can do it here.
    And it turned out that, although he was President, he accomplished absolutely nothing when he was in that positon (0r worse yet, he was a lousy president).

    And so we come to the Hillary person. In spite of that long list of positions and committees, there is a striking absence of actual accomplishments. Indeed, what is most striking is the number of things done by others or done by committees, that the creator of the list credits to HRC. And creating a committee or working group (which is nonsense on its face - such things are done by groups of people, not one individual) is NOT the same as actually doing something.

    What are the most poignant things in her background? HillaryCare? A colossal failure. Getting elected to the Senate in New York? Says more about the idiots who vote there than it does about her. Her work as Secretary of State? A veritable cornucopia of failure, mismanagement, and delusional policy-making.

    Looking a little below the surface, the biggest "accomplishments" in her career are getting other people to pay for, or do, something, and taking credit for it. Consider her loudly pushing "parental leave," and a higher minimum wage, for example. (ignore the fact that these are both unconstitutional and bad policy). Who is going to pay for the compensation paid to people who are not working for many weeks at a stretch? Who is going to pay those higher wages?

    She doesn't know, and she doesn't care. All she cares about is that she can take credit for something that she never actually did (pay for a benefit for someone else).

    Having worked for 8 years in the public sector (Federal) and 40 or so years in the private sector, I would be happy to expand on how private sector experience is extremely valuable in a public sector executive position, but this forum is about HRC, so I will just say, much of her exalted experience is stuff and nonsense, not worth a bucket of warm spit. Give me someone who ran a successful landscaping company over any politician, anywhere. I know what I'm talking about.
