  1. Was MrsClinton a “good” Secretary of State? is the question posed on Politico. The read seems to be that she was OK except for the “Repub’s obsession with Benghazi”.
    She was a failure, a liar, complicit in the unnecessary and criminal deaths of Americans she pledged to protect. The only protection she provided was cover for MrObama’s dereliction of duty, and her own rump in the deliberate coverup of the Benghazi massacre.
    In over her head, she misread the Russian’s intent, solidified the Islamic coaliton to continue with their murderous ways, and accomplished nothing to better our standing in the world’s political affairs.
    Part of the problem with our StateDepartment’s agenda is the continuing appointment of political hacks to lead the agency instead of those who have real diplomatic credentials or backgrounds. There’s nothing wrong with promoting within the agency to insure that a coherent policy is continued.
    So, the answer is No, she was not a good S of S. She turned into a world traveler spreading our money to friends and foe alike for no advantage to the USA.

    • Spot on.

      Looking back Im glad I did not pass that State Dept. “Foreign Service Officer” test. I could not deal with the B.S. that fills the State Dept. and Foggy Bottom nowadays.

    • Hillary’s only accomplishment was spending four years racking up mileage (and extra pounds) while serving as Obama’s good will ambassador to the Muslim world.

    • Well said, srdem. “Repub’s obsession with Benghazi”? The callous disregard for the men and women who put their lives on the line in defense of our country is disgusting. It’s not just Republicans who are repulsed by these cowards who deserted our brave men and left them to die at the hands of our enemy.

    • I’ll chime in with others’ praise here, srdem. The only quibble I have is that in your conclusion I would not say “for no advantage to the USA” but to the detriment of the USA.

    • Terry responded I’m amazed that some people can make $6798 in four weeks on the computer. see here now>>> F­­B­3­9­.­ℭ­O­­Ⅿ

  2. Hillary’s reset button cost: $1 billion. From the AP report, the Pentagon went shopping in Russian for military helicopters for Afghanistan.

    Army negotiators omitted a provision standard in government contracts that permits pricing reviews. In examining the contract, the audit agency noted that Rosoboronexport “is arguably an agent or instrumentality of a foreign government and is therefore exempt from most cost accounting standards.”

  3. The Big Lie: “If you like your [*]doctor, you will be able to keep your [*]doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.” Barak ‘Hubris’ Obama

    *Disclaimer: “If you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that.” Zeke ‘Mengele’ Emanuel

    • He’s one creepy dude.
      As we learn more about the horrors of Obamacare, the shock of higher premiums or lack of medical preferences will pale as people realize that those deductibles are beyond their abiltiy to pay.

      How this mess could be untangled or plays out in the next 6 months or year is a mystery. Will Congressional Dems cave and put their careers before the party or the President, and if that happens, will the President be tough enough to veto such a’s all awaiting.

      • On Fox & Friends this AM, I swear I heard Rep Ron Johnson call him Mengele… I thought of some of you guys with the Nazi stuff. Yeah, another straw man–we never said you could have any doctor in the country. Yeah, and we never said anyone said THAT. There was a man on NPR this AM with epilepsy–he invented a sort of leather wallet thing to bite on when he felt a seizure starting. He was bring evaluated at Stanford for brain surg–I am sure Zeke would not want him to have that–“Stanford? That is only for MY friends.”

        • Anecdote: This stuff does not include dental for the most part. I know someone who just got permanent implants on the bottom and removable on the top (cheaper)–$22K! Cash money. And could we have it upfront?
