- Hillary Clinton has been telling America that she is
the most qualified candidate for president based on her "record,"
which she says includes her eight years in the White House as First Lady
- or "co-president" - and her seven years in the Senate. Here
is a reminder of what that record includes:
- HILLARY, As First Lady, assumed authority over Health
Care Reform, a process that cost the taxpayers over $13 million. She told
both Bill Bradley and Pat Moynahan, key votes were needed to pass her legislation,
that she would "demonize "anyone who opposed it. But it was opposed;
she couldn't even get it to a vote in a Congress controlled by her own
party. (And in the next election, her party lost control of both the House
- HILLARY assumed authority over selecting a female Attorney
General. Her first two recommendations (Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood) were
forced to withdraw their names from consideration, and then she chose Janet
Reno. Janet Reno has since been described by Bill himself as "my worst
- HILLARY recommended Lani Guanier for head of the Civil
Rights Commission. When Guanier's radical views became known, her name
had to be withdrawn.
- HILLARY recommended her former law partners, Web Hubbell,
Vince Foster, and William Kennedy for positions in the Justice Department,
White House staff, and the Treasury, respectively. Hubbell was later imprisoned,
Foster committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
- HILLARY also recommended a close friend of the Clintons,
Craig Livingstone, for the position of director of White House security.
When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of up to 900
FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs
by White House staff, both Hillary and her husband denied knowing him.
(FBI agent Dennis Sculimbrene confirmed in a Senate Judiciary Committee
in 1996 both the drug use and Hillary's involvement in hiring Livingstone. After
that, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office, after serving seven
presidents for over thirty years.)
- HILLARY, in order to open "slots" in the White
House for her friends the Harry Thomasons (to whom millions of dollars
in travel contracts could be awarded), had the entire staff of the White
House Travel Office fired. They were reported to the FBI for "gross
mismanagement" and their reputations ruined. After a thirty-month
investigation, only one, Billy Dale, was charged with a crime - mixing
personal money with White House funds when he cashed checks. The jury acquitted
him in less than two hours.
- HILLARY also assumed the duty of directing the "bimbo
eruption squad" and scandal defense:
- ...She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones
- ...She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which
led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million
dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's investigation led to Monica
Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.
- ...Then they had to settle with Paula Jones after all.
- ...And Bill lost his law license for lying to the grand
- ...And Bill was impeached by the House.
- ...And Hillary almost got herself indicted for perjury
and obstruction of justice (she avoided it mostly because she repeated,
"I do not recall," "I have no recollection," and "I
don't know" 56 times under oath).
- HILLARY accepted the traditional First Lady's role of
decorator of the White House at Christmas, but in a unique Hillary way.
In 1994, for example, The First Lady's Tree in the Blue Room (the focal
point each year) was Decorated with drug paraphernalia, sex toys, and pornographic
ornaments, all personally approved by Hillary as the invited artists' depictions
of the theme, "The Twelve Days of Christmas."
- HILLARY wrote "It Takes a Village," demonstrating
her socialist viewpoint.
- HILLARY decided to seek election to the Senate in a state
she had never lived in. Her husband pardoned FALN terrorists in order to
get Latino support and the New Square Hassidim to get Jewish support. Hillary
also had Bill pardon her brother's clients, for a small fee, to get financial
- HILLARY then left the White House, but later had to return
$200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork she had stolen.
- HILLARY played the "woman card" in the campaign
for the Senate, by portraying her opponent (Lazio) as a bully picking
- HILLARY'S husband further protected her by asking the
National Archives to withhold from the public until 2012 many records of
their time in the White House, including much of Hillary's correspondence
and her calendars. (There are ongoing lawsuits to force the release of
- HILLARY, as the junior Senator from New York , passed
no major legislation. She has deferred to the senior Senator (Schumer)
to tend to the needs of New Yorkers, even on the hot issue of medical problems
of workers involved in the cleanup of Ground Zero after 9/11.
- Quite a resume, isn't it? Sounds more like an organized
