Ready for Hillary to come clean? She sure isn’t

Hillary Clinton

“I did not have textual relations with another device.”

 

Wait a minute … you mean Hillary Clinton wasn’t honest in explaining why she didn’t use a government email account? How could this be? From the Associated Press:

“Hillary Rodham Clinton emailed her staff on an iPad as well as a BlackBerry while secretary of state, despite her explanation she exclusively used a personal email address on a homebrew server so that she could carry a single device, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

“The State Department released a total of four emails between Clinton and her top advisers as part of a Freedom of Information Act request filed in 2013 by the AP, which sought Clinton’s correspondence with senior advisers over a four-year period relating to drone strikes overseas and U.S. surveillance programs.

“While limited, the emails offer one of the first looks into Clinton’s correspondence while secretary of state. The messages came from and were sent to her private email address, hosted on a server at her property in Chappaqua, New York, as opposed to a government-run email account.

“They show that Clinton, on at least one occasion, accidentally mingled personal and work matters. In reply to a message sent in September 2011 by adviser Huma Abedin to Clinton’s personal email account, which contained an AP story about a drone strike in Pakistan, Clinton mistakenly replied with questions that appear to be about decorations.

“‘I like the idea of these,’ she wrote to Abedin. ‘How high are they? What would the bench be made of? And I’d prefer two shelves or attractive boxes/baskets/ conmtainers (sic) on one. What do you think?’

“Abedin replied, ‘Did u mean to send to me?’ To which Clinton wrote, ‘No-sorry! Also, pls let me know if you got a reply from my ipad. I’m not sure replies go thru.'”

Hey, who among us hasn’t replied to an email about a drone strike with our musings about decorative shelves and baskets?

More to the point, who among us, when forced to hold a press conference to address questions about possible improprieties during our time in public office, hasn’t stood in front of the cameras and lied — knowing proof of the lie could easily surface, and soon? And who among us, having been confronted with such allegations, hasn’t destroyed relevant evidence — evidence that wouldn’t have been hidden in the first place had we not gone to extraordinary measures to conceal it?

Not to worry. The new rationalization from those Ready (to Rationalize/Deflect/Mislead/Obfuscate/Scream-Sexism-or-Whatever) for Hillary will surely be that Clinton didn’t get the iPad until at least a year after becoming secretary of state, and couldn’t have been expected to carry two devices in 2009 just because she carried two in 2010, and it depends upon what the meaning of the words “carry” or “at that time” is.

If you’re prepared to tote that water, let me ask you: With the Clintons, are you really sure there aren’t more inconvenient facts yet to come out, given that it has taken two years of FOIA requests by a major news organization to get a mere four emails sent by a government official?

Are you Ready for Hillary(‘s Next Shoe to Drop)?

 With the Clintons, are you really sure there aren’t more inconvenient facts yet to come out,


There are always more inconvenient facts to come out. They are always there just around the corner.


Just look at Benghazi.....or maybe even Whitewater.


Surely we will get to the bottom of those and several other "scandals" soon

Democrat don't seem to think that they are answerable in any way to the people, and are not bound by the same laws as the rest of us.


They do what they want (legal or not), then lie, deflect, and cover things up after the fact, with the help of the liberal media.

"would you vote for Hillary?"


Depends on who is running against her.  Most likely not, because I don't want another Clinton in the White House.  But if she runs against a Bush, I'll go ahead and vote for a Clinton. 


But I'd rather not need to make a decision between a Bush and a Clinton. 

Please do not let it come to that.

She still polls higher than any GOP clown. Besides, when is JEB going to explain all his emails? Terri Schivao?

Like the Obamas, the Clintons have sized up the liberal mainstream media and seen nothing at all to fear.

The one redeeming fact about the posts frim the conservatives is that they are so hilarious, so that one can have some fun reading them. For instance:


“Now that Hillary has all but disqualified herself …”


From somebody apparently living in the la-la land.


“The fact that Hillary was (allegedly) using a personal off-the-grid email server to communicate highly sensitive State Department information is mind boggling.”{


ALLEGATION is mindboggling? For somebody who must have lived a very sheltered life, apparently.


“Scooter Libby got 30 months for less.’


Scooter got 30 months for allegations?

Kyle, your columns about Hillary are a full octave above your remarks about any other politician.

Compare your columns. Ask your friends.

But maybe you believe self regulation always works.

Everything I've read about this states that she acted within the guidelines and law at the State Office. If that's the case, why are we even spending a moment on this when the country has much bigger fish to fry? If it's important should we care that Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee destroyed their computers and hard drives when they left the office of governor?

Since 1992, 18 states with a whopping 242 (current) electoral votes have supported the democrat in presidential elections.


If I were you, I'd be knocking on doors trying to scare up more voters instead of concerning yourself with Hillary's email account.


I guess all the focus on her email is the tacit concession that the GOP won't be running on the economy in 2016. I wonder why? You spend 6 years slamming Obama for the economy, lacking the foresight to realize that eventually the economy will rebound.


How does the question go? "Are you better off today than you were 8 years ago?"

@IReportYouWhine#1 Oh, it's been grilled so much it's past done. Ask the CIA and see what answers you get there.  They're the ones that were the experts in the arena, and evidently they had people on the ground in Benghazi.  

Yep, it's ALLLLLLL ABOUT HILLARY.  BENGHAZI!!!!

The old war horse just ain't what it used to be, but the proggies have spent 8 years preparing it to win the Derby, and no other horse is in the stable.   So, they will be cheering their old nag as it hobbles to the finish, hoping the sleek fast GOP race horse trips on some of the garbage and mud they will be throwing in front of it.

@RafeHollister Based on the GOP's recent history, it's more likely that they'll put their horse out to pasture before the race starts then blame the media for messing up the track.

How can you tell when Hillary is lying?


Sadly, there is no baseline to make that determination.


.The fact that she wiped it clean meant that she took a calculated risk....either "be honest" or "admit to a federal crime."


The woman is bad to the bone.

Now that Hillary has all but disqualified herself and E Warren saying, again today, that she WILL NOT run...who's the 3rd stringer?  Uncle Joe?

Martin O'Malley would do just fine, and likely obliterate anyone the GOP had to offer.

And no, you've likely never even heard of the guy.

(All bets are off if the GOP has the intelligence to run Susana Martinez. But fortunately, they don't. And no, Kyle, bottom-of-the-ticket doesn't count.)

No one cares. Only foolish conservatives looking for anything to hang Hillary cares. This "emailgate" or "emailgazi" is just another manufactured diversion.

@coj Based on past history, you are probably right, character matters to the GOP, not as much to the Dems.

Kyle - "the new pro-Hilary line"


Actually, its the "be concerned about what really is important to the American people" line.

The fact that Hillary was (allegedly) using a personal off-the-grid email server to communicate highly sensitive State Department information is mind boggling. Any other federal employee who pulled that stunt would've been fired, or even prosecuted.

@Bumper15 Well, since you mentioned it...Hillary fired a State dept employee that did what she did.

I've thought long and hard before posting about this but still all can do is ask: Really? I'm supposed to be upset, now, because the iPad, and the mixed-up reply thing?

Really hard to imagine the gen-pop caring about this, but if it keeps y'all busy...

Nobody looks more foolish or juvenile than the right wingers trying to make a case out of Hillary's e-mails.  Nobody wants to read her e-mails or rehash some old news.  Lets get on with the 21st century.  We already know all the facts - sorry fellas.  (And stop walking around with those mirrors on your shoe tips - that went out in Junior High).

Oh, just stop right there Kyle.  You mean you expected honesty from any politician?  Says more about you than her.  


Show of hands.  Who thinks any politician is ever telling the truth?  None?  Good, then we can stop pretending to be outraged about Hillary's lying.

@Kyle_Wingfield @RichardKPE That's right!  We expect it so much, that we're just cynical about any politician opening their mouth. 


Or if you aren't cynical, then you haven't been paying attention.

My answer: No.



My question: Why do we need a religious liberty bill in Georgia? What problem is it addressing?
