Who is the Real Hillary Clinton?

With a campaign “war chest” of $2.5 billion (that's the Hillary Clinton's campaign goal), will Hillary be able to transform her Marxist/Socialist mindset to be able to embrace the more moderate electorate? While in college, Hillary wrote her thesis on the thoughts and ideas of the father of community organizing, radical Saul Alinsky, author of the book “Rules for Radicals”, which also was the textbook for Barack Hussein Obama when he taught a class on Alinsky at the University of Chicago.

She is campaigning on the idea that she is the champion of the poor and middle-class. Imagine a
1% er like Hillary trying to to be able to relate to poor and middle-class voters? That's like Chuck Schumer saying there are too many microphones in front of him. In her 25 plus years in the public eye and politics, what can she point to as her major accomplishments as 1st Lady, U.S. Senator, and Secretary of State? If they wrote a book listing all her accomplishments it would be one of the shortest books ever printed. Even her closest allies in the media and in the Democrat Party can't come up with any major accomplishments that she has had since her days as 1st Lady of Arkansas till the present, that would warrant her being our next president.

Do the American people trust her? Most recent polls taken show that more people mistrust her than trust her. That, in my opinion, will probably be the albatross around her neck if, as it seems now, she will be crowned as the Democrat nominee for president. She is one of the most polarizing figures in politics today. Her “laundry list” of scandals from the days of Bill Clinton's presidency till the dust up from her stint as Secretary of State, including Benghazi, the deleted e-mails, and the accepting of donations for the Clinton Foundation from countries with dubious human and woman's rights records, she seems to always be having to answer charges of being less than honest and transparent – it seems that rules apply to everyone else but not to Hillary (and her husband, Slick Willie).

Is she the moderate candidate she claims to be? “Let's look at the record”, as once presidential candidate Al Smith once opined. Here are some quotes uttered by Hillary over the years.

“We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good”; “It's time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, and for the few, and to replace it with shared responsibility, for shared prosperity”; “We can't just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people”; “We have to build a political consensus and that requires people to give up a little bit of their own in order to create this common ground”; “I certainly think the free-market has failed”; and “I think it's time to send a clear message to what has become the most profitable sector in the entire economy that they are being watched”. Are those the statements of a moderate or are they statements similar to those from the Karl Marx playbook? Will she be a continuation of the policies of the Obama Administration which a majority of people, who were recently polled, say that those policies are not working for the benefit of the average Joe in our economy? It seems that everything that should be up is down, and everything that should be down is up.

So with that projected campaign “war chest” of $2.5 billion, will she and her gaggle of political campaign operatives be able to soften her image and present her in a positive light? But, as the old saying goes, “You can't polish horse manure”, it will be a monumental effort of spin to overcome the obvious.

That's the real Hillary Clinton, and it's not a pretty picture. To all my friends, don't fall for the “snake oil” being offered for sale by the Hillary Clinton campaign. We can do much better than that.

2.5 billion dollars can buy a lot of people and complacency can be a killer. It's a wonder republicans can still walk considering how many times they've shot themselves in the foot.

Do you people remember that when the Clinton's left the White House in 2001, they took property estimated to be worth over $180,000 and later were forced to return about $120,000 as property belonging to you and I the taxpayers? How can you trust someone who seems to be skirting the law at every turn in order to enrich herself (and her horndog husband, Slick Willie)?
